Once upon a time, when Rumana and I were done with our IT class work (cos we were total “geniuses”) we would google the randomest shit.
One day, we came across the enchanted website of Yahoo horoscopes and we were mesmerised by the many snippets of “material evidence” it presented. We would read on almost everything to do with horoscopes, whilst some were really interesting, others were just plain absurd. Ever since then, we have always referred to horoscopes for the mere amusement it brought to us.
As part of our horoscope reading, we would look at love and friendship compatibilities and I came across our friendship compatibility on this website, and it was freakishly accurate, to an extent. Here is what it had to say about Rumana (the Virgo) and I (the Pisces) ^^:
“When Virgo and Pisces form a friendship, it generally makes for a good match. The two signs are opposite each other within the Zodiac, and such signs tend to be well balanced and offer what the other lacks. They are the easy-going, do-Gooding duo, committing them to serving the community as well as each other. This pair brings out the best in one another- they’re a great combination overall. Both signs dote on and adore one another. They work toward a harmonious friendship and are basically tolerant and sympathetic people. Virgo can help Pisces fulfill dreams and ambitions and teach them to turn ideas into reality. Virgo will provide a solid, steady base for the more emotional and intuitive Fish. On the other hand, Pisces offers gentleness, kindness and an emotional depth that Virgo admires and appreciates.
Virgo and Pisces are both Mutable Signs. Both like to move from one arena to another as the feeling takes them. They are each continuously inspired and assisted by one another, forming a cyclical ring of new ideas and a steady stream of excitement. Conflict rarely arises between them, and when it does it quickly resolves itself. Both friends have learned the fine art and benefits of compromise. The best aspect of the Virgo-Pisces friendship is their complementary and harmonious attitude toward one another. The overall empathy and commitment these two signs value in their relationships is what will keep the ties strong and long-lasting. Their loyalty to one another, as well as to their friends and the community, make this friendship the envy of those around them.”
I really don’t know if astrology is true or not, but this post was quite intriguing and it did take me down memory lane with Rumana.
So horoscopes will always have a special place in my heart, not because it predicts stuff, but because it can be plain hilarious and I’ve had some really good times because of it 🙂
