A Year in Review

Although not much of a believer in astrology, I admit to looking at my horoscope from time to time. Usually it only prompts a big, cartoony question mark to appear inside my mind, but every now and then something hits right on. Here's the horoscope prediction for the year listed on my birthday last year:

You are an awesome success machine. Your perseverance is legendary and has already brought you far from your beginnings. You won't be satisfied until you attain all of your goals. Do make sure to take some time for fun personal relationships as well as for rest to recharge your batteries. There are actual advantages to being well-rounded!

Yeah, well. Not a lot of match ups there. Especially that first sentence. I've had some success here and there, mostly with writing reviews. But not much with fiction writing, and none at all with a jobsearch that seems to be non-ending. I do make time for peronal stuff, and quite gladly use at least one day a week to "recharge". Basically this one read like a bunch of fortune cookies stuck together.

I'll be curious to see what the predictions are for 2005.

Haha, I love that line: "awesome success machine."

I actually am a kinda, sorta believer in astrology. I'll buy some degree of the descriptions of personality traits, those often seem on the mark, but must admit, I don't ever follow daily/monthly/yearly predictions -- I have to say those always strike me as utter bunk. (Except for those in The Onion!)

What a great reading you got though, and you did actually have that recent fiction success! Good luck on the jobsearch though... that can be a tough one.

Maybe it was a typo. Or code. Maybe instead of "awesome success machine," they meant "awesome sex machine" but figured that wouldn't go over well in a newspaper.

Tee hee ;)
