Believing in stars

Illustration by Miles Huffman

I’m a big believer in horoscopes.

I’m one of those people that checks them everyday.

I either check them after I wake up or at the end of the day to see whether it was right or not.

They’re always right.

Ok, I lied. They’re right most of the time.

But they’re still fun to read, when they say good things will happen to me, that is.

Horoscopes have a tendency to tell me that I will usually have a gloomy day or that today will be the day that I meet the love of my life.

I’m still waiting for that to happen.

My belief in horoscopes started when I read what astrology said about scorpios.

I’ve checked every website that talks about Scorpios and their characteristics.

The most common traits for scorpios are intense, observant, suspicious, loyal and misunderstood.

Reading the descriptions I realized that’s how I am.

Since what they said about scorpios were usually correct I decided that maybe horoscopes have some truth to them.

Or maybe I just like believing in this stuff because it makes life a bit more fun, I don’t know.

I mean I believe in cookie fortunes too, so what does that have to say about me?

Regardless if horoscopes are real or not, I will keep believing in them because it makes my life a bit more interesting.
