Who actually makes up the daily horoscopes?


Who actually makes up the daily horoscopes?

I’ve been reading my horoscope lately and i am curious who actually writes them and where they are getting those horoscopes. Please give me a short and pretty explanatory answer. Thanks.

Answer by Vic DiCara
Being an astrologer and having many friends in publishing… let me tell you that ANYONE makes them up… sometimes even just random editors write them. They are complete fluff.


What were the lucky dates for a Gemini in the horoscopes section in the June 2009 issue of Seventeen Magazine?

Yes, I know that the horoscopes are not real, but I was just curious as to what dates were mentioned as lucky. Thanks!

It doesn’t say the lucky days (for Gemini- only for Cancer), but it says something good will happen on the 18th.

Why do people put so much stock into horoscopes?

I’m not trying to start a fight or insult anyone, and if I offend you I apologize right now because that’s not my intention.

I’m just wondering why people put so much stock into horoscopes. It just seems wrong to me when someone makes a life altering decision (ex: relationship wise) based completely on a horoscope, or they judge someone with a certain horoscope based on his/her horoscope without getting to know them.

I haven’t ever gotten into horoscopes but this is just what I see when surfing Yahoo Answers.

People like to think that there is a way to know what is going to happen. They like to believe in fortune, fate, premonition because these things give them comfort. These things say that the future is not a complete mystery, and that people don’t need to be afraid of it.

It gives people false hope. It makes people sit around waiting for their fortunes and horoscopes to come true and not take initiative.

Also, horoscopes are generally positive. It makes people believe good things will happen to them.

Answer by Nemo
The answer is simple. People are gullible and often stupid. Horoscopes make general predictions that people twist to fit their life. People want to be sure of the future and go to great lengths to believe that there is a way to be sure.


who makes horoscopes;


  1. I make it rain says

    Truth time I can see both sides of the coin. I like astrology b/c its pretty accurate at times, it gives you something to think about and has helped numerous people find themselves and understand certain aspects and maybe even change the negative ones. Plus it’s fun.

    On the other side I can see it as something people who like to control things use to feel like they have some control in their lives and some of it is hog wash. It’s been given a bad name by bad apples. People who are exploiting it for the money, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have relevance.

    Our forefathers were astrologist. Newton and Franklin, Dee and Kelly were all GREAT thinkers and they believed in this and used it as a science if you will. Alchemist used planetary positions, gave them names and used them to unlock some of the secrets of the universe.

    It really upsets me when people get on here and blast astrology. I don’t make it a habit to go on christian websites and tell them since there is not real proof christ exist then they are all crazy liars. I just wish people would mind their own business at times.

    people like to hear that there is a light at the end of the dark tunnel.
    people who are often in bad economic situations or are in a bad love life like to believe horoscopes, because it gets their hopes up. there is a so called astrologist on the spanish channel univision’s primetime news Primer Impacto. the guy’s name is walter mercado, and it is funny to hear him, he does funny gestures, while enlightening people with positive horoscopes.

    i don’t believe in horoscopes, but it sure is funny to see a homosexual looking dude, with a different dress or “robe” on everyday, flailing his hands while telling me that others will depend on me.

    I don’t believe in horoscopes, but I believe in signs’ characteristics. They are mostly true I have learned on my own experience. Reading that stuff helps you to understand yourself better at times, and think about things people usually don’t think.

    I don’t fully rely on synastry prognoses, but I believe that some signs are compatible and others are not. And often people just waste time on each other, because they don’t know they just can’t get along well enough to have some future. So I guess I believe in “non-compatibility” in the first place.

    And, yes, Astrology IS fun 🙂

    I think that you have an excellent argument. I agree that it’s very superficial and ridiculous to put all of your trust into a Natal Chart or a Horoscope when it comes to determining your relationships and friendships. Relationships should of course be determined by how comfortable and complete the other person makes you feel, emotionally, intellectually, physically, etc, without the help of any written document or ambiguous prediction.

    HOWEVER. There is a difference between horoscopes and astrology. Horoscopes are generally made up garbage. But astrology of the signs and their attributes is a science that deserves attention. The majority of the people on the horoscope site are ignorant about the depths of astrology. There is an astounding amount of truth to astrology if a person knows enough about it and knows how to interpret it correctly. In your Natal Chart you have many different signs, planets, and aspects that shape you into the individual that you are. Let’s say, for example, that you are a Libra Sun Sign. Libras are supposed to get along best with Geminis and Aquarians, and completely clash with Capricorns and Cancers. But you should never determine your relationship based on a Sun Sign alone, because there are so many other factors in your Natal Chart that will predict who you can best get along with. If you are a Libra Sun Sign that has a Cancer Moon (Moon Signs determine your emotions), then you can get along very well with a Cancer Sun, and completely debunk the bad relationship reports between Libras and Cancers that you read about on websites.

    I’m sure this is quite confusing. Lol. But the bottom line is…all of those websites out there that give you stereotypical relationship tips about certain Sun Signs give astrology a very bad and false reputation. It’s true that you shouldn’t put all your stock into horoscopes, but you should delve more deeply into astrology if you actually want to learn the valuable information.

    Find out what your Natal Chart is here:

    Sun Sign – the one you know, overall state of being
    Ascendant – how you look, appearance
    Moon Sign – how you feel, emotions
    Mercury Sign – how you think and communicate, intellect
    Venus Sign – how you love
    Mars Sign – how you take action, sexual drive

    Match all of your signs with someone else’s signs. I didn’t believe it would have any bearing at first either but it’s frickin true…if your signs line up with theirs in most of these areas you’ll get along fine…if they don’t…you’ll frickin clash with them.
