If there’s one thing I’ve been able to rely on for years now, it’s my horoscope. I am 100% a scorpio, there’s absolutely no doubting that I fit the mold completely. About 5 years ago I started getting into astrology and trying to understand how it affects each of us. So, for the past 5 years I’ve checked my daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly horoscopes religiously – and they’ve always been pretty accurate. I’m not saying I take each one word-for-word, but the idea of each is pretty much on par with what’s going on in my life at that time.

Until now.

For the first time in 5 years, my horoscopes can’t help me. In a time where I’m really looking to “something greater”, it’s not giving me what I need. Even my psychic can’t give me the answers I’m looking for. So now what?

I’m left constantly overthinking and overanalyzing situations, and hoping that things will work out how I want them to. I’m so used to knowing how the universe is influencing my life and what to expect from it and now I’m in the dark. Almost every situation I’ve been in, I’ve been able to look to astrology and understand how the planetary alignments affect my sign and the signs of those around me – but I just don’t fit the explanations anymore.

To be a little more specific, my horoscopes lately are focusing on wealth and job opportunities. Each day it’s a new outlook on how to manage my career, with no insight on the rest of my life. In a time of major confusion with everything in my life except my career, I feel like I can’t relate to other scorpios anymore. It’s a little dramatic, but this has been my go-to for 5 years.

I’m not saying I completely live based on my star sign and horoscope, but it makes feel a lot more secure to have a guideline and it provides some sort of explanation to the craziness of my life.

I like having something secure to look at, especially when I’m anxious about the situations I’m facing.

Have your horoscopes been off lately? Let me know in the comments – maybe I’m not the only one noticing this.
