I’ll start off by saying that I am a Pisces, such a cliched version of one in fact that it does not surprise me whatsoever that my whimsical nature is attracted to the idea of horoscopes. I love reading my daily love horoscope in the morning, and going into my day feeling like I have some idea what kind of luck I should expect to have. Recently though, I’ve found other, more creative ways to use horoscopes in my daily life. Here are some of my favorites:
1) Vacation Planning: This one goes at the top of my list especially because, like many people, I find traveling to be incredibly anxiety-inducing. The best way to reduce that anxiety, as it turns out, is to make sure you do not just limit your planning to travel-specific arrangements. By looking up your monthly horoscopes and keeping an eye on the astrological alignments, you can actually plan the best time to travel based on your likelihood of experiencing stress as opposed to tranquility. You can also use your star sign to help you figure out where to go on vacation based on your personality type. For example, a Leo who enjoys experiencing the glamorous things in life would likely enjoy a vacation to New York City or Hollywood, while I, a serenity-loving Pisces, would enjoy a trip across Europe, visiting ancient wonders of the world and taking in the beauty at my own pace. There are many articles available online that give recommendations of this kind, and I would definitely suggest perusing through them while planning your next trip.
2) Investigating Romantic Compatibility: Most people who regularly view their horoscopes are aware that some signs are more compatible romantically than others, for example, Pisces are more compatible with Cancer than Gemini. However, many people do not realize that your horoscope can also help you decide when is the best time to start looking for a new relationship, when to start dating, even when it is time to move on. For example, if your weekly horoscope tells you that you’re going to have luck in your interpersonal relationships, it might be time to consider taking a leap of faith and asking that special someone out on a date.
3) Career Planning: Similar to romantic relationships, your horoscope and star sign can help you not only determine what career paths might be good for you, but also help you choose the best time to make a big career move. If your horoscope cautions you against impulsivity, this might not be the best time to quit your job on a whim. On the other hand, if you’re advised to take a risk, this might be the time to ask for that promotion you’ve been working towards.
So, when you look at your horoscope over the next few days, think about new ways to incorporate information about your star sign into your life– who knows, you might be able to significantly increase your quality of life.
