Have you read your latest horoscope? And at the same time, making a resolution that those good predictions would happen within this year!
I got confused on my horoscope after reading some important information on the beginning of astrology, from the Babylonians, to Hellenistic; and then to the Western, Islamic, Hindi and Chinese; and then the Native American Astrology has added more confusion on what will be my way of life in 2019!
My question is: Which astrological predictions would you believe? In the Babylonians, Hellenistic and Western Astrologies, I was born under the Zodiac sign of Taurus! And for Islamic and Hindi or Vedic Astrologies, so much to digest to understand the signs and symbols to predict your fortune or misfortune. One has to study more on these two astrologies. In the Chinese Astrology, I was born under the Year of the Horse; and in the Native American Astrology or the Aboriginal Astrology, I was born under the animal sign of the Beaver.
In the Western Astrology (known as horoscopic), the continuation of the Babylonians (with Egyptian beginning) and Hellenistic astrologies, my Zodiac sign is Taurus. My horoscope tells me the two sides: my strengths-reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, and stable (thanks for exposing my inner self!); and supposedly my weaknesses: stubborn (like a bull), possessive (because I do collect salt and pepper shakers and electric heaters?) and uncompromising ( yes, for negative and toxic people).
In the Chinese Astrology, under the Year of the Horse, I am pliable, wise, discreet, agile, attentive and full of sympathy (wow, last Wednesday night, I invited a panhandler to have a burger and he refused. I just gave him some money instead.). On the flip side: I’m lazy, greedy, and indulging in self-admiration (Yuck! Not true!)
In the Native American or Aboriginal Astrology, my horoscope under the animal sign Beaver, states that I am determined, methodical and friendly. ( that’s me!) and the dark side of me: cunning, authoritative, resentful! (Me? Holy Smokes!) According to Native American Astrology, the traits of humans and animals are not so different at all!
I am fully entertained by these character build-ups and hang-ups! And knowing that Astrology is concerned with studying the positions and aspects of celestial bodies in the belief that they have an influence on the courses of natural earthly occurrences and human affairs.
According to some scholars, astrology is a kind of sorcery and fortune telling. And it is forbidden because it is based on illusions, not on concrete facts; and it is generally regarded as pseudoscientific. It has consistently failed objective tests.
Whatever the claims of some scholars about astrology, especially the horoscopic analysis, one has to smile after reading the daily horoscope in the newspapers. It is an added bonus to make life easier with so many strengths and few weaknesses.
And finally, Taurus, career and money and success…You can beautifully create five-star meals and plating designs that rival your top competitor in the food business! (Hot Rod again?)
Remember, reality sinks in! Without hard work, perseverance, dedication and focus, you will not reach the pinnacle of success! And because in the Chinese astrology, 2019 is the Year of the Pig! Do not pig-out!
