- Horoscopes that are relevant (Adam Turner Web Administrator)
Has anybody seen these horoscopes lately? I have yet to see one of my horoscopes actually be useful or true, rather than the obvious, boring events that happen in everyone's life, every day. I will have an argument with someone today? She must be psychic! It's like Eugenia Last dug through a pack of fortune cookies and ate her way into being an astrologer. My advice for you is that you skip all together the horoscopes for today, and take to heart what the stars are really saying for you. Don't worry, I went outside and checked. What follows is what was seen to be the events for today, January 31, 2002.

Can we find a just punishment for his actions?
