Here’s the deal - we love astrology at Sh*t That I Knit. Sun signs, moon signs, ascendants - we are here for all of it. We don’t take it too seriously, but anything that can predict what the future holds is good in our book. And if that means we need to type in our birthday, birth time, and birth city into 5 different chart readers and 14 different horoscope websites to know exactly when to launch new beanies and when not to (#mercuryisinretrograde), we’re in. We can’t explain what it is about knowing your sign and reading your horoscopes, but we love it. Some are awesome and accurate, some are vague and kind of outrageous, but all of them are fun to read, sometimes silly, and always a great way to procrastinate.
So in honor of our favorite pastime, we’ll be writing a monthly blog called Your Sh*tty Horoscope. We’ve discovered a new sign called Stikitarius - more details below! Who knows what you’ll find each month - maybe a few hints about what’s to come, maybe a bunch of vagaries that don’t mean sh*t to you. We shall see. But we should note, that we are not trained astrologists, so please don’t plan your life around what we have to say. Okay - happy reading!
