Forecast for the day

Forecast for the day

I believe in astrology. Actually, I’m a convert – a relatively new one – since yesterday to be precise. Here’s how that happened. I woke up yesterday morning in a fairly happy frame of mind. Today the kids have their math paper and we were almost done with the portion. Then I happened to glance at my forecast for the day. Here’s what it said.
(The atmosphere and vibes at home are peaceful, and even if an argument takes you by surprise, your manner of reacting will soothe and heal.)
It only confirmed what I thought the day was going to be like. What could go wrong? The kids’ portion was done and we had the whole day ahead of us to revise.
Or so I thought!
I forgot how very fickle Math can be. Maybe the children were distracted or overconfident or simply had had enough, they just wouldn’t get their sums right. It seemed like all the practise of the day before had been wiped clean. After a point they refused to do any more. I was loath to give up because I knew they could do it. However the more I pushed the more they resisted.
That’s the point where things would have gone downhill had I not read that forecast. But however much an oxymoron it might seem, I was prepared to handle the ‘surprise arguments’ – to soothe and heal. 🙂 :-). So I let go for a while and by afternoon things were beginning to fall into place once more.
That is how the day’s prophesy for me came true and I turned into a believer. 
On a serious note I think the magic of astrology lies in believing as does the magic of success and achievement. Had my forecast said, something like Arguments-at-home-will-mess-your-day I would have probably believed that as well and despaired. But I didn’t. I hung onto my impatience because I knew I was supposed to be having a peaceful day.
This, I figured, was quite a neat little trick – one we could use with the children. All we have to do is to make them believe they are awesome and they’ll really make themselves awesome.
I’ll be looking up my forecast everyday now and making it come true, subject to the fact that it says something good. If it doesn’t, I’ll be writing my own to make sure I have a good day everyday.

You can write yours too. Have a happy week.

  1. the headline of the post caught my attention 🙂 I love reading a couple of astrology sites, not so much for the predictions which I tend to forget even as I read but the way they write….making it sound so relevant to one twelfth of the population…and doing this month on month…Loved the post btw.

  2. I used to read them first thing in the morning and that would set the tone of my day. And then I grew up! LOL 😀
    I liked how you transformed your day with that one positive thought!

  3. I completely loved your ideology of taking the best from the horoscope and believing in it to make it come true. Haha…and the also if its not good then writing your own would be the best thing to do. All in all, keeping faith in good things is the best way forward.

  4. How wonderful – taking astrology in your stride. We must all do this – so long as it says something good. Else, like you said – we can 'predict' our own future to be something good. 🙂

  5. That's a great way to lead an optimistic life. Don't they say, believe in your dreams and you're half way there? I used to think astrology was rubbish, to me it all looked the same. Now you've given a different outlook to that. 🙂

  6. True… Its what you believe. Reading the daily forcase kinda plays on your mind, and very often when you do get under their influence, your thoughts and actions do tend to take shape as per the prediction. Best dont read them, and if you just have a laugh and brush it off. 🙂

  7. I really like that outlook, of using the astrology to try and channel some positivity. I'm a huge believer in star-signs but not so much in the daily horoscopes, perhaps now I should take another look! X #mg

  8. He he I like your pov. I think that's true though, what you believe in ardently, manifests. So glad to see that happening here! And no, I don't believe in horoscopes. Do read them for the fun element though.

  9. I do not believe in them but I do read them daily for a good laugh 🙂

    Most of them seem to tell me that I will find love soon and a proposal is coming my way. I'm like well, maybe it is reading the past instead 😛

  10. hahaha I also read these horoscopes once in a while only idly. It is fun when they sometimes predict a calm and peaceful which is hardly every possible in my day. 🙂

  11. Hahaha Congratulations for making it a peaceful day. Yes you did it. That was a cool idea to make children believe in their awesomeness and they will mirror that. As mothers we are more awesome than just awesome 😀 The curious part of me wants to question why has your children's school having exams during Navratri when there should be holidays?

    1. I don't think the school is to blame Anamika. The festive season starts right from August and goes on till December. Exams will have to fall somewhere in between.
