Horoscopes – my view

Horoscopes and my view of them in our modern world.

For the longest time, my mum told me that my star sign is Cancer. I always took it as true, only as I grew older I found out that I’m an actually an Aries.

It’s funny because growing up I always thought that horoscopes always have something interesting to say about me. Once I got to know that I was wrong all along the way, it was clear to me that these are a scam.

To this day, my parents have fun watching the Horoscope on TV. The horoscope guy usually says “Don’t believe but verify.” Personally, I think it’s witty for them to do that.

Validation leads to fitting things that happen to suit the astrological prediction. We do it all the time with our point of views. It’s seeming rare to accept blame and very frequently blame others, for example, while driving.

Self-fulfilling prophecy is another behaviour that would be happening to any sort of believer. If the horoscope predicts that you’ll gonna meet your love of your life over the weekend, you’ll probably shave, get all pretty/handsome and make sure that you won’t miss that chance.

What you’re in fact doing is getting influenced, and indirectly increasing the chances that the horoscope would be actually true.

What if they truly make my life better even though there is not science actually involved? That’s true, maybe dolling up will get you the love of your life and maybe you’ll do things that you would had never dared doing before.

My advice is to live everyday as if it was your last, chase your dreams and think big.

Personally, I always take these predictions with a pinch of salt. I prefer gazing at the stars than following their advice.

I'm a 30 year old soul, whose need to express himself was not satisfied by the common social media. While others vomit words with little thought, I will try my best to fill the void they have created. Born, raised, and reside on the cursed islands of Malta. I studied Sciences my whole life and always wanted to have a space where I can release my creative demons. In this blog, scientific objectiveness will meet the cry of different opinions and thought-invoking tales. Subjects will vary from the futile to the world changing.
