Your Weekly Horoscopes: The Road Sign Edition

Years ago, while driving around San Diego on a book tour, we saw what to us was the craziest road sign: the black silhouettes of two adults running for their lives, dragging a youngster behind them, all on a yellow, rectangular background. You don’t get many of those in the Northeast. (Though maybe you yanks are more familiar with it ever since all the “papers please” news started coming from Arizona.) It struck us how effective road signs are: succinct, powerful, instructional, universal, and sometimes entertaining, even if you don’t quite understand them (frost heaves, anyone?). So we were inspired to whittle your horoscope down to its purist form–behold, The Road Signs.
