30-Day Writing Challenge, Day 21

21. Your zodiac/horoscope and whether you think it fits you.

From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

2116 All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.

That being said… I was born on the Libra/Scorpio cusp. I loved reading the “Monthly Outlook” in Seventeen magazine, and to this day I check it out if I’m reading the comics and the advice column in the newspaper.

Look– everyone knows that horoscopes these days are “for entertainment purposes only.” I could read the horoscope for any zodiac sign and apply it to my life. I don’t take it seriously.

There are other people who do take it seriously, though. That’s up to them.

Here’s to making your future instead of reading about it.
