Fake Horoscope #3: Take Care of Yourself and Others

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. That’s right, you are reborn. This time, you can be a lot more careful. Eat green and orange vegetables, stand up straight, chew your food 32 times, and drink eight glasses of water a day. When you walk, avoid stepping on cracks, to preserve the health of your mother. If you or someone you love severs an artery, be sure you know how to apply a tourniquet. Wash your hands after delivering farm animals, especially calves. Your daily work is appreciated by your superiors, and a promotion may be in the offing. If a rabid dog appears on your street, call Atticus Finch, who is the best shot in the county. Don’t use tools like weed-whackers, axes, staple guns, or chain saws, in your bare feet. Dress appropriately for the season, the job at hand, your gender of choice, the political climate, and your sun sign. Capricorns should avoid wearing fur. Leather products, however, are fine, when used wisely. Aim high.

Fake Horoscope #1: Romance the Stone

Let your better nature shine through today. Use your skills to promote your brand, both in and out of the workplace. Judge not, lest ye be judged. When running on the seawall in Vancouver, British Columbia, look for a smooth stone with a stripe around it. This is a symbol of good luck. Keep the stone in your pocket and fondle it in times of stress and uncertainty. Develop your empathetic sensibilities. Go overseas with Habitat for Humanity, and help build homes for those who do not have the luck of the stone. Return home and adopt a three legged cat from the SPCA. Now is not the time to make major decisions.
