15 horoscopes, 5 people, 1 quest to find out which Khmer newspaper, if any, is reading our stars correctly.

Kampuchea Thmey:
Today your fortune is very good. You will have good news and benefits in both your work and business as well as in all your travels. Especially all work that relates to communications is welcomed by the business partner. However, you should be careful and carefulness always brings safety.
Koh Santepheap:
Today your fortune is fair. All your work today faces things that go up and down and that is not so clear as it requires you to be careful and try your best in order to be a success. If you run a business you can make a profit to support your family easily and there are no obstacles. For love, tolerance to each other is the key.

The Phnom Penh Post:
Today your fortune is good. You and your partner have such a good relationship. Your work has satisfied your boss. Both business and work will go smoothly. All your trades are very good. You are kind and generous which makes others like and admire you. Your words make others excited.

Reality:
Today I faced lots of complicated things since the morning. I had to finish an assignment before 9.30am, but after I put a lot of effort in I didn’t really have much. At noon I was called in by my teacher because I did something wrong. With my friends, today I seemed so rude and naughty and after I felt bad. In the evening I was not paid well for my work and I have to wait until next month to get my full payment. It was such a disappointing day.  At the end of the day I found out that the horoscope that worked well for me was the one in Koh Santepheap.

Kampuchea Thmey:
Today your luck is down. You work very hard without any free time, but you have no specific job goal. Business is not making a profit at all. You care about money, making you upset and sad. For love, it is intimate without any problems.
Raksmey Kampuchea:
You have fairly good luck. Your work is going to be up and down today and not stable. Therefore, you have to be careful and strong with everything to succeed. For those who are business people, you are able to earn money as normal without any impediments. For those who have love, their partners understand each other and there are no arguments.

The Phnom Penh Post:
Your luck is declining. When you go somewhere near or distant to work, you will meet failure and obstacles, which makes you depressed. Your voice is not acceptable to others. For love, partners do not understand or forgive each other, which can lead to a separation or break-up.

Reality:
Study: I was really happy with my studies on that day since I finished my assignment on time and was appreciated by my friends since I was able to finish my work on time and had a good result. In conclusion, my studies from morning till evening were good for me. For family, I did not have any arguments and everybody is fine, apart from a bit of a problem with money. I asked my sister for more money, but she said she had no more money for me.
In conclusion: I think that the horoscopes for Tuesday in these three newspapers were not correct for me as a university student.

The Phnom Penh Post:
My fortune today is good. Your work will be done smoothly, which will also making your Boss satisfied with you.  In the business, you will be able to earn a lot. In speaking, everybody will love what you say. Love, however, will not go well.
Rasmey Kampuchea:
Another great fortune! This is  bad month, but this week will be better than the others, and today in particular will go well. You will be successful in your work, strong in business, and people will tend to sympathize with your struggles. If you’re a woman, you may even see your love life pick up.

Kampuchea Thmei:
Today your fortune is high. Your good fortune may even last beyond today and into tomorrow. Your job is going well with no obstructions apparent. If you happen to own a business, you can move forward in expanding or investing without any fear of failure.

Reality: All three newspapers said today would be awesome,The Phnom Penh Post, however, seemed to be the most prescient. The prediction that I would appreciate my boss was spot on; my school director decided to use my quote that “donating blood is saving a life” in an announcement on our school’s information board. My classmates were all chatting about it. The only negative prediction from the Post was that it would be a bad day for love, which was also true, since I had a recent breakup, but I’m not getting down about it; that’s just the way life is, happy and Sad.

Kampuchea Thmey:
The horoscope says today I will have very good luck. There are good opportunities and I will get help from people around me. If I were a businessman, I would make a big profit today.
Raksmey Kampuchea:
The same as Koh Santepheap – it says I will be fairly lucky today. But I have to be careful with everything. If I were doing business, I would have to make a quick decision in order to make a profit.

The Phnom Penh Post:
The Post Khmer says it is not my day today. I would fall ill and my business is not running well since it would lose profit. But it is good in terms of love.

Reality:
I don’t think today was my lucky day. In the morning there was a blood donation campaign at my campus and I was disappointed to miss taking photos of the event because I forgot to bring my camera with me. It would have been good to post the event on my blog. Later in the evening, while I was riding my motorbike home, I had a flat tyre and the mechanic overcharged me. I had no choice but to fix my tyre. However, I was not sick as my horoscope predicted. I had a bit of a cold the next morning, but I was better and recovered by the end of the day. I was a typical chilly morning.

Kampuchea Thmey:
Today your luck is not too bad. You should be more careful about your health, for you seem to have more tasks to do than usual, which will make you exhausted. Lovers who are far away from each other will be meeting and having a sweet time.
Raksmey Kampuchea:
You have fairly good luck. Be careful with your decisions today because there are enemies around. Therefore, you should not talk with sweet people or you will be cheated and will regret it. Whatever business you are doing, you should use your intelligence to deal with any problems.  Businesspeople could make good money. Partners in love do not seem to get along very well.

The Phnom Penh Post:
It looks like you need go to a pagoda to ask for a magic shower from a monk. You’re luck today is very down. Whatever you do, you will face obstacles. You might have some health problems because of carelessness. Your relationship with people around you seems to be in trouble too. What makes it even the worse for you today is you might have some quarrels with your beloved and that might lead to a separation.

Reality:
Friday is my favourite day, and as usual, this Friday was still a bright day for me. I actually had a full schedule, but did enjoy the day and was satisfied with most of the outcomes of my efforts, including studies and work. My class went smoothly as usual. And what was even more exciting was my friend’s sister’s wedding reception, so we left the class a little early and went to the party. Friends and family were doing fine. It was not a surprise to me that no one fought with me because of love issue as I do not have any.

In conclusion, today’s horoscopes from these three sources did not really match my actual daily life. I am not a big fan of horoscopes. But I do not judge those who love them because I guess they may have helped them.
