Written in the Jewish Stars
We're not saying we believe any of this, mind you, but, yes, Jews, too, like to peek at horoscopes. But up until now, something's been missing -- that Jewish touch. Sure, you could count on Bubbe and Zayde to dispense career advice and to forecast general doom, but that hardly suffices. And, yes, there are always those well-meaning, pushy relatives to talk up eligible singles as the man or woman of your future.
But it's time for some counsel that's neutral, detached, learned, authoritative -- and perhaps as equally useless but infinitely more entertaining. So, starting Jan. 1, we present for your weekly consideration: Jewish Horoscopes.
They are a Web-only exclusive feature of The Jewish Journal at jewishjournal.com/horoscopes.php -- authored by the soon-to-be-famous Minnie Mankowitz.
You'll have to log on to find out how Karl Marx, Erica Jong and Bob Dylan fit into the picture. Or what to buy or not at Trader Joe's and IKEA. Or the role of chocolate and romance in the week to come. Should you buy a bra? Whiten your teeth? Go into seclusion?
Log on and start planning your future -- before someone else does.
