Your Horror-scope

I'm not a big believer in Horoscopes (generic pieces of $#!^ sometimes), but for some reason I clicked on this one today which had the horoscope for the entire year 2008. So what if all the months say the same thing? It's a great exercise in Mindset, Law of Attraction, and Positive Thinking anyway (also known as the self-fulfilling prophecy effect).

Here's an excerpt:
What goals do you have for 2008? You might think that it’s a bit early to start making New Year’s resolutions, but if there is ever a time to jump the gun with this tradition, it’s now. The year 2008 is a year of transformation and will be a hectic and tumultuous year. Those who are prepared for economic and political shakeups should be able to continue with their lifestyles, though even they may hit a few bumps in the road.

Global economic upheaval might cause larger personal expenses, and investments might not be as profitable as you had planned. Political tension worldwide could create a troubling atmosphere, and you might find yourself unusually irritable. Yet clever, insightful people who can sense the needs of a changing society will grow stronger by adapting and staying flexible. They might even find themselves suddenly wealthy. This year will NOT be a year to rationalize or to ignore the admonishments of economist. Very often we go through life wearing blinders like a horse, but those who take off those blinders and prepare for a rocky road can thrive in 2008.

First resolution:
Get your own life in order — NOW. Whatever is uncertain, firm it up. Pay off as many debts as you can, and avoid running up any new ones. Start setting aside a little nest egg for yourself, and clear up any tension there may be between you and friends or family members to improve the mood.

Second resolution:
Don’t depend on anyone but yourself to solve your problems. By taking matters into your own hands, you will be able to enact change in your life and in the lives of those close to you — if you want something done right, do it yourself! If you’re dissatisfied with your life, work to change it, perhaps by joining one of the grassroots movements that have been popping up like mushrooms all over the world.

Third resolution:
Get involved. What cause appeals to you the most? Is it world peace, health and fitness for all, sustainable energy, or perhaps the rights of the weak, such as children and animals? Doing good for others will give you inspiration in other areas of your life, and overcoming obstacles will give you a sense of pride and accomplishment. Now is not the time to back down from a challenge — you could surprise yourself with how successfully you dealt with a difficult situation.

And this is mine:
Gemini: There's no stopping you!

With your way with words and your gifts for persuasion, you could play an important role in world transformation. Even if you only serve as spokesperson for your own community, you’re still making a difference. Remember that.

Reaching your goals should be easier in 2008 than it has been in previous years, Gemini. The Grand Air Trine involving Mars in your sign, the Moon in Libra, and Neptune in Aquarius strengthens your mental quickness and in-depth thinking - thus improving your ingenuity. You'll be able to come up with new ideas and plans much more quickly - and thus reach whatever goals you want to attain faster than you'd ever thought possible. The difficulty may lie in making snap decisions too quickly. It's important to arrive at a happy medium: the ability to think and move quickly without compromising quality or good sense. You can do it - with a little encouragement. Your 2008 Forecast can give useful advice and turn you in just the right direction.
