Almost there...

I love the Breszny horoscopes because unlike the traditional 3 liners in the paper, his are actually articulate, and though I don't expect he's predicting my future, he sure does offer a nice reminder of advice that is always a good idea:
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): "I do not wish to hear about the moon from someone who has not been there," wrote 19th-century wit Mark Twain. That's an extreme statement of how important it is to formulate conclusions based on first-hand knowledge rather than on hearsay and random opinions. In the coming weeks, this principle will be even more crucial to your mental health than it usually is. In my astrological opinion, you need to significantly increase the proportion of information you acquire through your direct perceptions, as well as from people who've had intimate contact with the things you're curious about.

Just yesterday I'd been ruminating on all of the ways a particular sticker I have can be applied this week. The sticker says "Don't hold strong opinions about things you don't understand." This is basically the same good advice and a good admonition both for self and for others.
