Written in the Stars...

I'm not an avid horoscope reader and I certainly take the predictions with a pinch of salt. However, I do have a love for reading my stars at this time of year. I suppose it embodies everything I like about the New Year - it's got the positivity, the excitement and the hopes for the future. Plus, it would be fun to make a note of everything and see, next year, how things panned out.

In the Sunday papers yesterday, I found my 2014 horoscope for Taurus.

Okay, so since I'm being honest, the way I like to work horoscopes is to read only the things that apply to me, completely ignore things that aren't like me or don't apply to me in any way, shape or form and then marvel in wonder when things are so true, likely to be true, or I want them to be true. With me so far? 

Right, let's get on with the portion of this blog which will gush about how wonderfully accurate this particular horoscope is and then get very excited for the year ahead!

The first bit:
  • I wonder if being ruled by Venus and her 'sense of promise' is why I get so excited about the possibilities of a new year? So that sounds like me. 
  • And, lord knows, I'm stubborn as the days are long so that definitely hits the mark, too!
  • Looks like I'm off and running with this horoscope!

The year ahead: 
  • Interesting. Since I'm not currently working (and not just because it's the Christmas hols) I really hope the 'demands' means that I get a job in January. Either that or the demands that are coming thick and fast are from me finally having the courage to start my own business. That would be exciting!
  • Practical yet creative - did they follow me to write this horoscope?
  • Health and fitness are a focus from now - I'm not waiting until May! 
  • A new arrival announced in August? Wait until I tell Debs that not long after her wedding (or before!!), she might be in the family way!! Bwa ha ha!
  • Ooh and my man will finally step up in October - happy days!

In years to come: 
  • Ever since October my man is really stepping up to the plate - liking loving the promise of romance continuing into 2015! 
  • And I wonder if the little dig about my finances is another hint at finding my passion in work? Hmmmm.

For Fun:
  • That is me to the letter. Every single bit of it.

In Love:
  • That's a little freaky as it sounds suspiciously like what the psychic said to me (and is definitely true!). I like to think of myself as a hopeless romantic who is also something of a commitment-phobe! I can now revise that to being particular in order to find the right person.
  • The last bit - 'even if you don't always show it' - is definitely a nod to the fact that I can be a mean ol' sod on occasion!! 

Star Style:
  • Well cut styles? Well, I don't tend to follow fashions and I do like 'simple' pieces, however I really like quirky and fun accessory items so this is perhaps one of the things I will ignore.
  • The fact that it says that the throat is the body area associated with this sign gives me the willies! I have a phobia about throats (yes, I do realise it's a very weird thing to have a fear of!) so I don't really know where to go with this. *shudders*

At Home:
  • I do love my creature comforts, oh and definitely food. Spot on.
  • Ignoring the colour scheme bits because while I like earthy tones for my living spaces, my kitchen has to be retro black, white and red - like a 50s Coca Cola diner. Slightly different than delicate pink!
  • My garden is a picture - it's fab!

As A Taurean you... (my spell check wanted me to change that word to Tureen - snort!)

  • Definitely need a job with security - it's why my recent decisions about jobs was a MASSIVE step out of my comfort zone. (And why I'm now grumpy that I can't go crazy in the sales!)
  • I suppose I'm dependable - sounds a bit boring though!
  • Excel in creative stuff - that's so kind. I'll take it.
  • On a bad day I can be so much worse than this implies so I'll take this one, too!

Love Compatibility:
  • This is where I always think people take horoscopes too far - not dating someone because they are 'incompatible' with your own sign. Don't be silly! That said, from this and what the psychic told me, my man will be a Virgo. (Did I just admonish people for being lunatics then come out with a statement like my last? That's right - I did!!)

So, my life is going to be awe-some in 2014. A little positive thinking goes a long way and it what can it hurt to get a wee bit excited about what the future may hold?

Happy Hogmanay-eve!


  1. I read this horoscope too - well, our birthdays are only 2 days apart - and didn't take much of it on board. It'll be interesting to see how much of it pans out. 2014 is gonna be awesome! :o)

  2. 2014 is going to be AWE-SOME! Fingers crossed my horoscope comes true this year (and yours, too!).
