Dangerous Paths

Our world has a fascination with astrology, physic phenomena, fortunetelling and the occult. Just look at the TV shows which are, or have in the past, littered our screens.

Love & the Stars: Is There Something to It?

As I admitted when I wrote about pet horoscopes, I’m kind of interested in astrology. I think there are some things it can help explain. A few years back I got a huge book called The Power of Birthdays, Stars, & Numbers: The Complete Personology Reference Guide. (When I say “huge” I mean as in size, not that it was a best-seller. I don’t know if it was or not.) Anyway, it lists all 366 birthdays of the year. Using part astrology, part numerology, and even some psychology it profiles each personality. The result is an overview of who you … Continue reading

What’s in the Stars for Your Pets in ‘08?

That’s what I wanted to know after writing about pet horoscopes. It was fun to see which stars my pets’ dispositions might fall under since I don’t know any of their exact birthdates, but what about a year ahead forecast? Was there such a beast?

(But their general description of each Zodiac sign is … Continue reading

Pet Horoscopes: What’s Your Pet’s Sign?

I find astrology really interesting. I know some people would argue it’s evil because it goes against the teachings of their religions. I have no idea whether it’s bad or not. I just know astrology predates many of those religions and that even presidents as recent as Ronald Reagan have consulted astrologers to guide them in their daily affairs. I also don’t know if there really is something to the way the stars and planets are lined up that affect us, but I have noticed a couple of things. One, when it’s a full moon people do tend to act … Continue reading

All About Me: What’s Your Sign?

It’s the old familiar pick up line – “Hey, What’s Your Sign?”. Horoscopes are fascinating, even if you don’t believe in them. They are fun to read and can provide entertainment for a few laughs. Astrology is interesting in it’s own right, if you take the time to read about it. Even if you don’t believe. However, some people take horoscopes seriously, and some are truly content with just occasionally looking at them just to see, just to check and find out if they are true. No matter which type of person you are, and how you feel about horoscopes … Continue reading
