Lots of people read their horoscopes, whether they admit it or not. Even if you don't believe what they say, it is still kind of fun and silly to see what your zodiac sign says about you.
Then you have those who are downright superstitious and can't go a day without reading it. Even back in the middle ages, people would comment on births and the signs that came with it.
"Ah, born under a lunar eclipse, this child shall bring darkness..."
"Hmm... born under a red sky at sunset, this child shall have blood on his hands..."
"Born in a basket, under a weeping willow with twenty doves flying around. He'll become a beggar."
I mean really, some of them can be pretty silly. But it played a huge role in people's lives. The zodiac and birth signs became important to people. Peasants and nobles alike would scramble to find the woman who could read their birth signs and tell them their futures.
I actually have zodiac signs and the like for my world, but it isn't something that I elaborate upon. It's there, quietly lurking in the background for when it becomes important.
And that's it, everyone. That's the Z post. We're at the end of the challenge! How'd you do? Did you make it through? Did you have to drop it for whatever reasons? Hey, been there. I've had to quit things before. But good on you for taking up the challenge and giving it your best effort!
See you all tomorrow for the Insecure Writer's Support Group and then again on Friday for the A to Z Reflections post.
