As I have mentioned previously, I get my horoscope delivered via text message to my phone every morning at 7:00 a.m. There are a few days when I have not received it, which of course leaves me to wonder if that’s a sign I should be concerned with. As if the universe decided it wasn’t worth the trouble to predict my day ahead.
I should tell you that I don’t build my life around these ‘scopes. If they come true it’s fun to think “Wow!” or “Ooooohhhhh!” (insert spooky music here) but most days I delete them as fast as I read them. This morning’s was a keeper. It said:
“You have to find work. If you get offered a job, take it. You can always quit if it doesn’t suit you.”
Right away I thought “Hmmm . . . interesting . . . and then – but it’s Saturday so I doubt any job offers will come rolling in.”
Then I thought, wait a minute, shouldn’t this have been my horoscope at the end of May:
a) When I did have to find work
b) When I did get offered a job
c) When I took it
d) skip quit for now
e) It doesn’t suit me.
Four out of five is great odds isn’t it? It would be five out of five if financially we were in a position that I could quit. If wishing were hoping and all that.
Maybe tomorrow’s horoscope will simply read:
“You will win the lottery today. You can quit”.
How sad that I’m more focused on being able to quit than winning the lottery?
