Wisdom from the heavens or the Sun Times, whichever...

Georgia Nichols, one of the astrologers featured in the Chicago Sun Times, has this to say for all signs today:

ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day! The moon is in Taurus.

No decisions or shopping at all?  That sound you might've heard, if you're inclined to believe in horoscopes, would be a collective groan from retail outlets worldwide.  Okay, so the family will have to eat leftovers, I guess.  No trip to the grocery store and online shopping at is o-u-t.  I don't even want to imagine world economies and the impact of the "wait until tomorrow" style of management.  On the plus side, here's the forecast for my sign:

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s easy to be happy and optimistic today! Something will delight you. Perhaps it’s good news that is coming your way or good news you are sharing with others? It could relate to your daily activities or siblings or writing and teaching. Congratulations!
Maybe I'll double my editing pages goal today.  Who knows? Anybody got news for me that you haven't shared yet?  What does YOUR horoscope predict for the day?

No... no shopping? Does downloading Kindle samples count?

I haven't read my horoscope in years. Let's see...

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Many of you will enjoy a wonderful day with family today. It’s a good day to entertain at home or schmooze with family members or relatives. You might even enjoy your own company at home. Avoid important decisions or shopping.

HEY! I got the double whammy no shopping. I wonder if that means they cancel each other out?

I say the double cancels out your warning, so you should be good to go.

It's funny, I never check my horoscope either but today for some reason, I actually looked. Notice how ambiguous both our predictions are? "You might enjoy company out with lots of people BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, you might get a kick out of hanging by yourself at home." LOL.

Now as you might've imagined, I'm truly superstitious (black cats have to come from left to right, chain letters/emails freak me out, etc.) but for whatever reason, the horoscopes don't tweak my antennae at all. Unless I'm making fun of it. Go figure.

Far be it from me to contradict Ms. Nichols, but I prefer Cafe Astrology's prediction for today:

The Astrology of Today - All Signs

April 6, 2011

The Sun aligns with Jupiter in Aries today. Vitality increases as we build our confidence under this influence. We feel more generous, optimistic, and sociable. We might hunger for increased recognition and respect, and, with our generous attitude and concern for others' well-being, we might just get what we want. In Aries, faith in ourselves can bring about positive circumstances or good "luck". This is a good time to take steps to grow something - our business, our significant relationships, and so forth. This transit also favors legal, educational, religious, and cultural endeavors. However, be mindful that the Moon is void of course all day and Mercury is retrograde, so working on something already in progress is best. The Moon is in comfortable, healing Taurus all day.

Now, doesn't that sound better than the alarmist: NO SHOPPING?!?!?

I like that version of the world's horoscope MUCH better! Thanks for sharing.
