As we all know, the eternal secrets of your destiny can be revealed through your Muppet Horoscope – that mystical star sign determined by what the Muppets were doing on the date of your birth.
For example, my birthdate is January 6, 1971, so I was born under the sign of The Great Santa Claus Switch. This means that I’m cute, I’m sentimental, and I have a tendency to dress up in other people’s clothes and impersonate them at work. The prediction for my future is that just before I die, Ed Sullivan will appear and tell everyone goodbye for me.
Jan 2002: The crystal ball is closed for now… I’ve done so many horoscopes that the pipes are all clogged up. Enjoy these Horoscopes of the Past, and when I get the ouija board warmed up for more, I’ll let you know…
