Chiapperino has told me about some distant relative of his who used to be in charge of writing and organizing horoscopes for an entire year at a time for some publication that will remain nameless, primarily because I don’t remember which one. This relative shared his process, which was not too unlike pulling a rabbit out of a hat. He would collect or write these little “gems” of encouragement, wisdom, wishful thinking or even caveat, and randomly place them on the calendar so that the seeking one with enough unsuspecting belief could read their “guidance” for the day and somehow have an effect on the outcome of their life. Seems odd that something so frivolously assembled could be given so much personal power and weight in the lives of the eternal seekers. And I agree they may seem kinda gullible if they take it too seriously unless you factor in the concept of a sovereign God who knows and intimately loves each and every being he created and can also use any and every means available to whisper some little something into the hearts and minds of anyone with even a slight willingness to consider it.
Hmmmm…..maybe these things aren’t so random or frivolous….
