Are horoscopes actually accurate?

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.
