    Default Horoscopes?

    How many people people here follow their horoscopes? Do you think that they are just a generic 'cover all bases' gimick or do you believe in them religiously?

    I've looked at mine for this month, and I'm rather sceptical because I don't really think that every Virgo in the world would have the same sort of 'guidelines':

    What are your thoughts?

    Horoscopes are just another ploy to try extract money from gullible people
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed

    I assume they are printed in a newspaper or magazine? The hope i presume is that they would aid in the sale of them
    so that some poor schmuck might buy it in the hope of knowing how his/her life will turn out

    I doubt anyone actually believes in them, just a bit of fun for people

    They are for groups of people
    so every star sign gets the same horoscope

    had a look at where you found yours and it's full of adverts linking to other sites, the only reason that site is there is to generate money from schmucks that believe that tripe
