Can Jelly Beans Predict Your Future?

I totally believe that everything happens for a reason, as it should. I believe that when negative events happen, positive things follow and that we must go through a journey before we reach the destination. I have always thought this. My beliefs are based on various aspects of religions, spirituality, astrology and a mother who taught me to listen to what everyone has to say without judgment, then decide what I would like to use from those conversations. A large part of this (for me) has always included astrology.

Yes, I am that person that checks my horoscope every day. Yes, I check monthly updates to see what is predicted for my sign for each month. Does it mean I live my life according to that? No. I use it as a tool, just like I use food as a tool. So I kind of (admittedly) geeked out just a bit when Gimbals Fine Candies shared this adorable horoscope pairing for National Jelly Bean Day. I mean, how genius?! I love allergy-friendly goodies so why not snack for a day and see if specific jellybeans were meant just for your astrological sign?! ....even if it's just a reason to eat jellybeans, Gimbals has caught my attention and my taste buds. So here we go....
