Daily teen horoscopes are constantly rising in popularity, and with the onslaught of webpage texting, kids are finding it ever easier to access their favourite page every day. The lure of these horoscopes is easy to understand; not only can kids read their own daily message but they can read those of their friends, and try to relate all of them into one foreseeable piece of information that is infinitely useful. In this vein, they are downloading teen love horoscopes with fervour.
Love horoscopes offer pretty much exactly what millions of teenage girls are looking for: insight into their own love lives. What teenage girl doesn’t want to hear that the person they’ve got a crush on is admiring them from afar? Or that they’re right when they think it’s time to end a failing relationship? These are often the most important questions in a teenager’s life, and daily teen horoscopes offer the answers these kids are looking for. It’s a wonderful idea.
The fact that horoscopes are based (or should be based) on scientific research called Astrology, has a varied effect on teenagers who check their daily messages. Some feel that the scientific approach validates the information they base their day on; others think it is a completely bogus science. Strangely, this doesn’t dissuade them from reading their horoscopes and making decisions based on the words!
It just goes to show the thought processes inside a teen’s head. Where there are confusing issues, order must be gained. To organise complex issues and thoughts in their minds, teens are turning to their horoscopes as the bearers of order and squashers of chaos. The science behind the messages is of no importance so long as kids can use the horoscopes to interpret what is going on in their own lives and get a grip on their own unique situations. In this way, any words of wisdom can wind their way around a tortured mind and begin a course of healing and positive action.
Daily teen horoscopes are to our society what fortune cookies used to be in the days before widespread Astrology and internet access. Everyone wants a small piece of advice; a little wisdom in their sometimes incomprehensive lives. Since teenagers are some of the most confused people in our society, it is no wonder they flock to daily horoscope websites and download the latest Virgo or Scorpio or love news on their mobile phones. They just need a little direction in their lives, a little clarity, and horoscopes are the obvious answer. For an entire generation of people, daily horoscopes may well be indispensable for years to come.
