My best friend Na said that I should accompany her to meet the astrologer. Na’s colleagues think The astrologer's prediction was very effective. I told Na, meaningItalian logician and mathematician Pierre Georges Audifredi believes that the twelve constellations do not exist in nature. They are like patterns that people "see" through the marks on the walls or the clouds in the sky, but they are The product of human imagination. Even so, I still have to go to see the astrologer. After listening to my explanation, Na still insists on her opinion.
So, on a weekend with snowflakes, Na and I arrived at the appointed place at the appointed time. A coffee shop with a terrace, the warm air and the aroma of coffee make people happy. On the small wooden table under the umbrella on the second floor, there is a latest fashion magazine. On the cover is the supermodel girl who is famous for her chopstick legs. I suddenly remembered that I bought the electronic version of this magazine, but I haven't finished reading it yet.
The astrologer appeared. She was wearing a bohemian spliced dress with at least ten colors and red feathers on her ears.Earrings, each earring was decorated with a small silver bell, so when she walked towards us with a smile, the coffee shop rang a continuous and crisp bell. She hugged us one by one, as if seeing a friend who had been reunited after a long time. When we sat down, I saw her wearing black pencil pants and red skate shoes under her bohemian dress. The contrast of these different styles of dress made her dress seem to be a slightly exaggerated profession. Props.
The clerk brought us coffee, and the astrologer asked Na to finish the coffee quietly. I didn't want to disturb the mysterious air flow between them. I picked up the coffee and paced the shop, then I found another chair and sat down and started reading the electronic fashion magazine on my phone. I caught a glimpse of the astrologer picking up the empty coffee cup after Na finished her coffee, probably to study the shape of the coffee stain on the bottom of the cup. Then they communicated a lot softly. Finally, Na handed the envelope containing the money prepared in advance toAstrologer.
After leaving the coffee shop, we found another restaurant to eat sandwiches. Na intermittently told me the astrologer’s prophecy: Venus and Pluto, which are in charge of love and pleasure, have become a romantic angle. Therefore, Na will spend sweet moments with her love in the near future; Neptune’s energy may It will cause confusion for Mercury, and Mercury is in charge of friends and business partnerships in the chart. Therefore, keep a clear and sharp mind at all times; a special gift from a family member may slightly relieve Na’s financial anxiety, because Venus and Pluto in the family sector form an angle, which is enough to promote family members to support Na’s self-worth realization...
I suddenly felt that these words seemed familiar, and then I opened the electronic version of the magazine’s horoscope and found , "Smart" astrologers intercepted the horoscope fragments of the 12 constellations. It seems that OdifReddy is right. Besides being able to prove the cunning of constellation experts and the stupidity of constellation fans, what value can constellations have?
