Horoscopes & Hell

Some may find it odd that though I’m a Theological Bachelor, I’m still ever-so obsessed with the Astrological. Far beyond the coffers I traverse within my mind, past the prejudice some may view my breed as bearing, I’ve always had a soft spot for my Horoscope. The Scales of the Libra have always defined me, and the stars have often dictated my course.

Like most, my star sign was my gateway. As its synopsis states I am a romantic cursed with self-indulgence; an imaginative mind the often falters into dark realms. Certainly this is a broad synopsis easily applicable, and skeptics would quickly state it’s so. However, I’m not here to convince the disbelieving, nor am I here to advocate for any cosmos cause. No, my intent is simply to discuss something near and dear.

 

Every day I read at least two printed horoscopes. Though I rarely take their advice, I am ALWAYS interested as to what advice exactly lies in store. The most pithy parables that cross my path are reserved for a sacred station. Taped up as reminders these starry sayings help me to see the light when I’ve forced myself to fade to black. For example, the other day I read “What do you dream of doing more than anything else? Do it – right now.” Simple? Yes. Profound? I truly believed so.

It’s amazing how unintentional word play works within us once read. I believe horoscopes to be some of the greatest examples of such grand influence. Though I’ve studied the depths of the craft this has never swayed me from the simplicity of it all. For some reason the stars which I was born under, the same ones I write under now, have been and remain influential for reasons unknown.

 

Call it the pagan roots that stem below the feet of us all. Call it my ever travelling mind and it’s obsession with the odd. Call it my love for Pisces, or my lion like upbringing. Call it what you will, but I will always refer to horoscopes with reverence. If for no other reason than the fact they bring hope to this hell I’m living in.

    Nice piece dude. Really different stuff, and I absolutely loved your insight to the world of  horoscopes. I always read mine, and I’ve always thought it’s very interesting. I’m a Sag. Wanna date?

      Hahahaha! The only girl I ever did wrong was a Sag… it wouldn’t work out. LOL! Glad you liked it, and it is really interesting stuff. Some of my theology professors discussed its connections with Medieval Christianity and prayer wheels, but I studied it a lot on my own when I was at college in Utah. It’s cool to actually follow your star pattern and the pattern of your parents. I was charting out my family tree for a bit and how our birth dates work together… but then I slowed down. Either way, I always read my horoscope, and I am a very proud Libra.
