MISFIT DOC: Black Goose Horoscopes

Aries:  That which you seek may not be found in a book, unless you are the narrator.

Taurus:  Take the black goose with one red eye and one white eye, out for pancakes and good fortune will follow.

Gemini:  In the absence of spice in your life, go to town decorating with confetti.

Cancer:  Know your place is in the center of the world, near Phoenix.

Leo:  You will receive a message from a stranger about a lost animal with your name.

Virgo:  Learn how to control the weather through dance, and you can save our planet.

Libra:  Remember the Lusitania, and other forgotten propaganda so you will never be tricked again.

Scorpio:  Choose life or choose death, don’t dilly-dally in-between.

Sagittarius:  Your mate is made of one hundred snakes. You are made of one hundred pigeons.

Capricorn:  At the fork in the road, choose the desolate way. The path of least resistance and tequila will not heal you.

Aquarius:  Be the fool on the hill and the king of the snails.

Pisces:  The stars see you wearing a new hat. They also see pancakes, enjoy.
