Maureen - I think that Ken was correct in saying that you are not relying on your horoscope too much. Whether we start our day in a good mood or a bad mood, our horoscope will be what it is. This is the energy that we have to work with. Basically, a horoscope tells us what we will face, so that we have a "heads up" on life! We keep that information in the back of our mind throughout the day, and make our decisions accordingly.
A good test of horoscopes is to take a few days and read your horoscope at the beginning of hte day, and take a few days and read it at the end of the day. Did reading it at the beginning of hte day empower you? I rather think that it will! :)
