Save Yourself the Trouble of Reading Most Horoscopes

Posted By on Wed, Jan 19, 2011 at 11:30 AM

Two information guys, David McCandless and Thomas Winnigham, pulled together a year's worth of Yahoo horoscopes and found out that largely, the same words and phrases are used over and over. So, if you want to skip checking your horoscope every day, just read this mega-scope.

McCandless also created a word cloud for each sign, which is kind of interesting until you realize you've spent five minutes reading an analysis of horoscopes from Yahoo, a site you probably rarely look at or think about.

If you're looking for horoscopes that actually sound like they might mean something, consider Free Will Astrology near the back of our paper every week.
