Is There Truth in Horoscopes?

I don’t put much stock in horoscopes. I read them for the entertainment value they offer sometimes. I read mine the other day. It was definitely entertaining – in a sad sort of way. “Every once in a while, good things come our way without us expending too much effort. However, it isn’t one of those times. If you want something, you need to work for it.” No kidding!

Let’s see. . . I’ve worked to find a primary care doctor for my parents who actually listens and acts (found one). I’ve worked to get good daily personal care for my parents (ongoing). I’ve worked to get appropriate and effective communication from the management of the personal care nursing service (not there yet). I’ve worked to get therapy that helps my parents (got some – ongoing). I’ve worked to get and keep my parents’ finances in order (ongoing). I’ve worked to make sure my parents’ bills are paid (ongoing). I’ve worked to fix mess-ups by Medicare (not there yet).

And while working on all this, I’ve worked at my full-time job. That is, until now.

Effective March 30, 2012, I was hit by the tornado/earthquake/hurricane/tsunami of company-wide layoffs. So now I’m working on finalizing all the elements involved with the company in a company-wide layoff, dealing with unemployment, and finding a job. Sigh. . .

While I’m writing this diatribe of whiningness, however, the television news reporters are giving updates on the storms that have hit us in Oklahoma the last few days. Five people died in the tornado that hit Woodward early this morning. Massive destruction of property.

This doesn’t make my life any less stormy or reduce what I have to work on, but I’m going to stop whining for now – in a sad sort of way.

Have you found truth in your horoscope?

  1. I’ve found that the only true ones are the good ones. t least that’s the way I think. If it’s ominous, I just think to myself, “but they don’t mean me.” I just assume they don’t have the space to include that in the article.

    Sometimes we need the reminder that life could be much worse. Keep your chin up…it will all work out….and I’m like you, horoscopes are entertainment….especially since I’m not a LEO anymore! LOL
