Not that you need any more evidence to convince you that horoscopes are complete bullshit, but this is one I hadn’t seen before and it’s fantastic.
The folks at Information is Beautiful made a word cloud for each astrological sign compiled from 22,000 “predictions” from Yahoo. This is what they found:
What do you know… the same words seem to pop up for each sign.
Feel. Life. Better. Sure. Keep. Energy.
The unique words to each astrological sign are in red — but they’re almost all throwaway words (e.g. “instead,” “totally,” “looking”).
That leads to this meta-horoscope you can all use at anytime:
Ready? Sure? Whatever the situation or secret moment, enjoy everything a lot. Feel able to absolutely care. Expect nothing else. Keep making love. Family and friends matter. The world is life, fun, and energy. Maybe hard. Or easy. Taking exactly enough is best. Help and talk to others. Change your mind and a better mood comes along…
Sounds just like me!
If you want to teach your gullible friend a lesson, cut out each wedge and have her pick the one that best describes her. Odds are she’ll pick a sign different from her own. And hilarity will ensue.
