Writing Prompt: Character Horoscope

Posted by at 12:36 am in Writing Prompt | Permalink

Writingprompt_charactergifts If you know your favorite book character’s birthday, then invent today’s horoscope based on the character traits below. (I didn’t go by the new zodiac with the extra sign because I like the traditional one better.)

For example, Harry Potter is born on July 31. That makes him a Leo, i.e. ambitious but domineering.

  • Aries (3/21-4/19): Courageous but moody Harrypotterthumb
  • Taurus (4/20-5/22): Dependable but stubborn
  • Gemini (5/21-6/20): Imaginative but indecisive
  • Cancer (6/21-7/22): Caring but clingy
  • Leo (7/23-8/22): Ambitious but domineering
  • Virgo (8/23-9/22): Clever but cold
  • Libra (9/23-10/22): Peaceful but unreliable
  • Scorpio (10/23- 11/22): Dynamic but jealous
  • Sagittarius (11/23-12/22): Independent but unemotional
  • Capricorn (12/23-1/19): Patient but conceited
  • Aquarius (1/20-2/18): Original but rebellious
  • Pisces (2/19-3/20): Devoted but oversensitive

So Harry’s horoscope for today is:

You will face an overwhelming enemy, but you will not back down. Face your fear and be strong!

Now it’s your turn. Find out your fave character’s birthday, and write his or her horoscope in the Comments.

    There’s a Jewish expression: ‘everybody needs a little mazel’
    Basically everybody needs a little bit of luck. The message is that we are not to live our lives by the horoscope, but a favorable horoscope doesn’t hurt anyone :-)
    I will take prayer and good deeds over a horoscope any day. T

    For Ron Weasly(Piseces):
    Your best friend might be receiving extra attention today, leaving you in the shadows. Don’t be too upset about it. You might lose their friendship as a result.
