The bookshops are having brisk sales of ‘Chinese Horoscope for 2006, the year of the dog’ or ‘What’s in store for your zodiac sign in 2006’ or some other blood-sucking ‘thy future is in thy hands’ books.
Then, there is palmistry, numerology, eight pillars of life (phat chee), fengshui, tarrotcards and the dubious fortune-tellers by the roadside.
I have never been to fortune-tellers before. Too freaked out to know my future. But I do know bits about palmistry, numerology, fengshui (me lilian too, remember?), phat chee and I do dig horoscopes, both Chinese and the western zodiac signs.
Everyone loves those positive vibes, don’t they? Like these words –
(got more but dunwan you people to say I kembang sendiri 🙂 )
And I live up to the perfectionist traits of a Virgoan.
HOWEVER…..I don’t believe in horoscope. Not anymore. Do you know that those horoscope you read in the newspapers are generated over and over again? The cycle is every 3 years (so says my church member). So, there. Do you still believe?
Well, I must admit that when we are just into a relationship, it is fun to seek out the other partner’s zodiac sign, birthdate, Chinese horoscope and then, look for compatibilities. When, there are similarities, probably you will be dreaming of growing old with Mr. or Miss Right…..because the horoscope said so.
I did marry (not intentionally chosen but fate?) the sign most compatible to me, a rat. And yeah, I do dislike a few people who are born in the year of the dog. But then, I won’t get my panties in a twist over them. Nah ah, now I prefer to believe in God’s will. Takdir Tuhan.
Psst…but if someone can read palm, tell me ya? And if anyone wanna get your fengshui read or phatchee calculated (this one very hard la, a lot of calculations), shoot your questions. I don’t charge and I don’t give guarantees also. I am only a copy and paster, remember?
