Just a short aside to transmit something I heard on the French news a couple of days ago. Did you know that seven out of ten French people consult their horoscope every day? Despite the fact that astronomers have proved that the constellations are no longer the same as they were when the ‘science’ of astrology was developed, people persist in giving credence to it and even regulating their lives by it.
Here, I have to admit that I look at mine every Saturday in Le Figaro Madame magazine. If it’s favourable, I’m quite happy to believe in it; if not, then clearly it’s a lot of rubbish. They always hedge it round with ifs and buts, anyway.
Does any of it ever come true? Have I come into the fortune that my horoscope promised me a while ago? You know the answer.
P.S. My birth sign is Virgo.
