A new survey has found that more
young people believe in horoscopes.
So are you hooked to your star
sign, or do you think it's a load of made-up rubbish?
Maybe you have to check your
horoscope before you make a big decision about something?
in horoscopes 100%! Loads of my horoscopes have come true! My horoscope said "A great
success today" and I got top marks in my SATs! Spooky or what?!
I kinda believe in characteristics of my horoscope but if everyone of that horoscope was
like that, everyone would be the same and that's not possible. But the things about what's
going to happen to you and stuff ain't true in my mind because it's hardly going to
happen. Mainly it's all guess work and stuff like that. Sometimes when they do come true
it's because people read their horoscope beforehand and when it comes to that day that
something is going to happen, that person believes it so much that they try hard to make
it happen without realising it.

sometimes come true, but that's just a coincidence, but most of the time nothing happens!
I can relate to my starsign very well, but horoscopes are just rubbish.
I really have a mixture. Sometimes I believe them, sometimes I don't. I normally look at
my friends' horoscope and read them out of a mag. Sophie, 11, Newport
Horoscopes are just stuff that would happen to anyone anyway. None of it is a real
Horoscopes are just a load of old rubbish. It's strange how people believe in them.
I believe in them and always look at mine, my friends' and my family's but some are
completely fake. And I'm not a Christian so I don't read the Bible.
Yeah totally! As I am an Aries, I read my column on day and it said that I would have a
great success. The next day I got my exam marks back and they were really good!

I think horoscopes are a load of rubbish and if I ever look at them it never happens. I
would sometimes like my horoscope to come true but that is only a dream. It may be a
coincidence that it happens, but they are made up, they are all different in different
They aren't true but people enjoy reading them. I think that we don't take much notice
unless they sound good! They're just designed to make you feel positive and to keep you
buying the magazine to find out what will happen to you.

horoscopes are sometimes true mostly I think they aren't. I think it's guess-work only,
though I enjoy reading what they say.
I love astrology if I meet someone I don't ask their star sign I get to know them first
then when I find out the star sign it nearly always fits their personality.
I don't really
believe in horoscopes. It's just when I'm looking through a magazine and I read through my
horoscope I can sometimes relate to what its saying, which is kinda freaky. It feels like
someone knows what's going on in your life.
I believe in dem and always turn 2 da horoscope page first in a mag coz there usually
true. It sometimes depends on the age limit of da mag, but der true m8.
I read my horoscope, but I don't believe them. It's just a bit of fun, really, isn't it?
It's insane. How
can stars millions of miles away determine what you do. That's something only you can do.
I have all the characteristics of my star sign, but not everything I read in my horoscopes
is always true, but sometimes it's spooky!
I don't believe in them at all! They're a load of rubbish, and I can't believe people
think they can tell us what's gonna happen! It makes me laugh!
I half believe in horoscopes because sometimes they come true but then other times they
don't. When I read the description of my sign I can relate to it, but then the things that
are supposed to happen don't. I would like my horoscopes to come true because they always
sound pretty good.
