... At least if you're a Gemini.
For some reason, this really tickled my funnybone. I'm hoping the link stays active for the old horoscope, but just in case it changes daily and you can no longer see it online, here is the horoscope for Gemini on July 17, 2007 as carried on newKerala.com:
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Travel and meetings figure prominently today. You may participate in more modern methods of teleconferencing or webcasting. You can get involved in mass communication and general alerts now.
Along with warnings about delays and accidents, sibling rivalry, and verbal duels, the planets can also advise on when to get involved in modern forms of advanced mass communications. So how about it, Geminis? Was it a good day for web conferences?
UPDATE - JULY 27, 2007: I got a very fun email from Joby James working at Cisco-WebEx. Joby originally comes from the state of Kerala, India (note the website name that I found the horoscope on). Joby decided to become a detective and tracked down the source of the horoscope to D. Donovan Kinsolving on www.upi.com. Speaking in generalizations only, the Indian culture tends to take horoscopes more seriously than the mass American public does. Joby was impressed by the technical overtones of Dr. Kinsolving's forecast and the fact that even the stars are pushing for greater use of web conferencing... It sure doesn't hurt the business prospects of WebEx and its employees! Thanks for the follow-up, Joby.
