The weird concept of: horoscopes

“So, what is your zodiac sign?”
“Ooooh…”

I’m not even sure what that “Oooh” meant, but I figured is wasn’t anything good.

Horoscopes have never been anything but a source of entertainment in my life, especially when younger and surrounded by friends who read them religiously. Believed every word they read. I’ve actually seen people write horoscopes, for student newspapers and such, trying to make them as ridiculous as possible. So when asked this question, I was more flabbergasted than anything else. How could I be judged on the stance of several stars and planets on the day I was born? How was I involved with anything the universe decided to coordinate in a way that is mathematically explainable and therefore can actually be calculated? Apparently, I was. According to the other person.

As I said: horoscopes have never played any role in my life. Raised an atheist and always focused on scientific explanations, I developed my own thoughts on the concepts of life, the universe, and what lies in the realms mankind cannot (maybe just yet) explain. Energy generated into a person by the stance of the sun, planets, and other stars was something my mind simply refused to process. However, when colleagues and friends start to look at you in a certain way because of that combination of heaven-bound globes one at some point at least wants to know WHY you’re being judged. And so I went online, and got confused even more. Ascedant, houses, planets, what made little sense to me to begin with now simply became more confusing than ever. And I was still being judged, possibly now of my lack of knowledge and believe as well. To me these were some of the weirdest concepts ever…

The weird concept of: the weird concepts

Weird concepts, the world is full of them. On daily basis I can be fascinated as well as surprised by things I see or observe. In nature, in politics, and mostly: in people.

People are full of weird concepts. I am full of weird concepts. I am full of weird concepts, therefore I am? I’m not sure, but that seems to sound right in one way or another. I’d like to make these observations, share them, hear what other people think about them. So every now and then I plan on reflecting on things I’ve run into and that have left me speechless as well as fascinated. The human behaviour and surroundings is full of things one can reflect on in this way, and through them I’d like to learn and grow as much as possible.
