We’re about to enter 2016 and I suppose everyone is wondering what this year is going to cough up. Many look to the horoscopes to get an idea. According to the Chinese horoscopes they tell us we are going into the Year of the Monkey, which kicks off on Feb 8, 2016. It looks as though the year is going to be a lively one and that anyone looking to start their own business could do well to start it in 2016.
Globally, we are expected to see quite a bit of global economic growth. It is a good idea for everyone to take up any courses that can enhance your life and more so that business that you should be starting! An exciting aspect of 2016 is that the Year of the Monkey is advising us to break free and actually take some calculated risks! This is especially true for roosters and horses as the year looks to be pretty exciting for them.
The Year of the Monkey 2016 is a good year to break free and take calculated risks. This sounds somewhat risky though, as the Chinese Horoscope warns that 2016 could be a difficult year for people who fall under the Tiger, Dog, Boar and snake signs. Sheep should be specially attentive around their health and rabbits should handle their finances with great care.
Astrology is one of those things that people do intensely believe in (even I believe in them sometimes- when I read Sun Signs by Linda Goodman, I was just frightened by how scarily accurate some of those descriptions were, and that certainly surprised me). But how accurate are horoscopes? Do the stars actually guide our lives? Does Mercury being in retrograde actually mean that all our dreams are going to fail?
From a scientific point of view, this does seem a little random. The best explanation I’ve ever heard is that this whole thing has to do with atoms and their energies. After all, all matter is connected, as we were all together during the creation of the universe. We all share these energies- but these energies differ, because of the slight difference in the matter in all of us. And it’s this energy that horoscopes are predicting.
I have come to realize something- no matter how illogical horoscopes do sound, sometimes, they are true (after all, we cannot explain exactly why a lot more people suicide during a full moon). While I do not read horoscopes on a daily basis and alter my mood according to the same, I do read my monthly and yearly horoscopes, because they help me make up my mind. I think of it as a solution given to me by the universe.
Moreover, if I am going through a big problem and want a solution, I head out and get a personalized birth chart made for myself- and I find them far more accurate.
I know millions of people, even in this day and age, are still drawn to the horoscopes page. Even me, I seriously know there isn’t any truth in it, yet I still find myself turning to the horoscopes when I buy my newspaper or mag. I decided to do a bit of research into this horoscope thing and discovered that there is actually a name for people like me who have this temptation to see what the horoscopes say. Its called the Barnum Effect. I didn’t like knowing I was categorized as someone with the tendency to accept as true, information from the horoscopes, even when the information is pretty worthless.
Just for sheer fun, I’ve kept some horoscopes pages and then recently compared them to newer ones. I’ve discovered that they are pretty much no different from previous year’s. Ridiculously unrealistic, I know, but I just find in fascinating and compelling for some obscure reason. In the 21st century, I think it is pretty safe to say in a modern horoscope that ‘you’re going through a difficult time’, because most people, certainly with finances, are battling. But this is fact can be solved in any case by taking a short-term loan with Ferratum. You’ll get your approval answer within minutes, and if approved, you’ll be informed within minutes. Hope is everything, and all we can do is look forward to and hope that today the stars will bring us what we’ve been waiting so long for.
Every morning newspaper is laden with horoscope. It is an interesting read, but do you believe in it? Most of the people get awed by something right happening in their life as predicted by horoscope. Come on that is just chance and people making living out of it are too clever for you.
There are many indications which we ignore while we believe in crazy horoscopes. Here are a few reasons to believe in your knowledge and not horoscope.
Pay attention to the origin – Just research how the horoscopes started. It is not scientific and based on stars which are themselves history at present. Remember the stars that we see today are not what they actually are. It is the past.
Position of stars – The very things the horoscopes are based on have changed a lot. Since the inception there has been little change in the concepts while the basis of the concept has seen a sea of change.
Sun is just a ball of fire – The chemical reaction of fusion gives sun its energy. It affects us but not in any way as the horoscope says.
Horoscopes are general – How can one paragraph predict about a million people. Just use your brains, and when you observe carefully the texts are just general predictions. You can also make predictions which are similar and will be more accurate for you.
Personality types are fictitious – The personality traits that are listed in a horoscope are all fiction and no facts. Even they have borrowed from Psychology. So why not depend on Science for the predictions.
