Variation on the Word Sleep

Friday, August 13, 2004


So I got a bit curious today. I love reading my horoscope. I found myself wondering how different horoscopes for the same sign and the same day would compare. Thankfully we are blessed with the internet and it is a repository for all things that people can make easy money off of, including astrology. Here's what I came up with.

MSN Astrology

Stephen, this is a good time to have an honest conversation with someone. Perhaps you and your romantic partner need to talk about your future together. You might want to express your desires for growth in your relationship or commitment. Your partner should welcome an open dialogue. You will feel great if you can get a clearer sense of where you are going, together.
Interestingly enough theirs is personalized and asks for your gender, so I thought I'd see if it was different if I was female. It was. Totally different and much better.

Find a reason to celebrate, Stephen. Even if there is not necessarily a good reason, celebrate anyway. Celebrate life, celebrate your friends and loved ones, and celebrate the air that you breathe. There is exuberance in the air that is encouraging you to take a good look at life, and be more appreciative for all the things that you have. Give generously of yourself and your resources. What you give out will come back to you several-fold at a time when you need it the most.

There are two sides to the coin. The reaction that you get may not be the one that you seek. This could be because others are more emotional than you anticipated. Try not to become too emotional yourself, and watch how you react in surprise situations. Even though emotions may be running high, you still have duties. Don't put things off until you're feeling differently. Some things you have to do no matter what.

Just because someone is in charge, doesn't make that person right. Question authority. Financial decisions have far-reaching implications. Don't fudge on budget resolutions, though you want to be impressive to dates.

Break out of a holding pattern. Advance your cause. You're as good as anyone else.
Business or pleasure? What a decision. If the universe has anything to say about it, you may have a chance to combine the two. What about that interesting new coworker?
I found myself wondering if my horoscope from them would be any different if I were not in the US. It was. Different and significantly more in detail.

You're attracting lots of favourable attention, so be sure to take advantage of this situation. Ask your superiors for added responsibilities, especially if these jobs have a glamorous aspect. Although you may not earn a lot of money from such endeavours, they will lead to bigger and better things. Let your first priority be getting your foot in the door. Your charm is so powerful that nobody will want to block your way.Image is everything this week, so look your best and dress for the part.

Avoir une vie sociale un tant soit peu agitée peut avoir aussi ses aspects négatifs. Evitez d'accumuler trop de nuits sans sommeil si vous voulez pouvoir continuer à être en forme.
Which roughly says that having such an active social life has negative aspects and that I should avoid having so many sleepless nights if I want to stay in form.
Interestingly enough Libra in French is Balance.

Its somewhat dissappointing that there doesn't seem to be much of a connection between them. No underlying theme of love waiting just around the corner, crouched ready to jump out and beat me sadistically. The nice thing is I can read them all and pick the one I like the best. I think I'll stick with the one about celebrating: "Celebrate life, celebrate your friends and loved ones, and celebrate the air you breathe." Excellent advice.


  • So I followed your link to the MSN Astrology and found myself playing with the today/tomorrow functions and looking at numerology forecasts....

    Horoscope today:
    Intellectual or spiritual concepts that you're trying to grasp may seem a little elusive, K. Don't try to push yourself too hard to understand them today; you'll only confuse yourself that much more. You're not losing it; your mental biorhythms are simply low. Instead, look at something else for a while, and let the information churn around in your unconscious. It may hit you tomorrow, so you'll want to cry, "Eureka!" Be patient with yourself.

    Numerology today:
    Magnified emotions are in store for you K. Today's vibrations are forecasting a favorable hand to make things go the way you want concerning your projects or perhaps realizing an affair. You will have control of your professional universe and know how to get influential people on your side to help you get to your goal. In sum, you will be on cloud nine today K, so take advantage of it!

    Horoscope tomorrow:
    Surprising and very fortunate events could take place today, K. This could be an advancement that you weren't expecting. The introduction of an interesting new person, or the beginning of an exciting new project could raise your heartbeat. The day should therefore pass by very quickly. Tonight, you may want to share your excitement with your partner or another family member.

    Numerology tomorrow
    This day of rest won't be any more stable, any may even be a little turbulent for you's up to you to calm people down around you. Today's vibrations will push you to be a good listener and tolerant. If your sentimental or family relationships aren't clear, force yourself to shed some light on them calmly and serenely. What is left unsaid may come out as quick as lightening today. You will have to have great lucidity to get through this "electric" day.

    I guess I'm not sure what to make of it all... words of wisdom and advice from the stars and numbers spoken from the same website, and still can't find an underlying connection. Hmm...

  • Yeah its interesting to contrast. I never like the numerology ones much partially because I don't trust their characteristics. Libra is described as:

    "Charming Libra - the seventh sign of the zodiac. Libra stands for harmony, fairness, equality, and balance. You are considered to be the most civilized and polite member of the zodiac, because you always display an even-tempered and composed attitude.

    Your ruler Venus - the planet of love, sex, and beauty - influences you to strive to create harmony, to express and show affection, and to accommodate and please others. Its romantic, sensual, and seductive energy makes you a suave and relationship-oriented person.

    Libra is the second of the air signs, giving you the ability to stand back and look impartially at all matters, always seeing and considering both sides before arriving at a decision. You are sociable, tactful, and have great empathy for others, which makes you a much sought-after mate, especially since you are so refreshingly energetic, loving, and honest.

    Your sign rules the seventh house of the horoscope, the sector associated with other people who act as your mirror. Therefore, it describes the nature of your relationships, both business and personal, as well as your experiences with marriage and partnerships.

    Your sign's mode is cardinal, meaning that you actively try to improve and work on your relationships by reaching out, making compromises, and inspiring trust in them.

    Your strengths, dear Libra, lie in your diplomatic approach to dealing with others. Your strong sense of fairness makes you the perfect mediator and peacemaker, because you always manage to stay objective and consider all points of view before making a decision.

    But even you have weaknesses, dear charming Libra! For example, you can be frivolous and decadent, and place value on the superficial. Sometimes, especially when you are indecisive, you can be vague, shallow, and insincere. In certain situations, you are tempted to define "fairness" to your own advantage. "

    Which to me seems right on. The numerology thing for my number (4). on the other hand is:

    "If your Life-Path number is FOUR, it’s good to recognize that it’s strongly connected to the element of Earth from which it gains its strength and profound sense of reality. FOUR’S can be seen as the cornerstones of our society with their innate sense of dedication, hardworking ethics and standards of excellence.

    Those with a FOUR Life-Path are generally the most trustworthy, practical and down-to-earth people there are. Organization and planning will come easily. Once a FOUR sets their mind to something, hell will freeze over before they leave it unfinished. Key qualities for a FOUR Life-Path number are order, service, steady growth, a foundation, and struggle against limits. People know they can depend on you once you’ve made a commitment to them in both your work and personal life. "

    Totally absolutely and completely wrong. "Organization and planning will come easy." Yeah right.
