it's written in the starlight, and every line in your palm
Okay, so I can laugh at this one:

Janet McKnight is deeply sensual. Her senses of touch, smell and sight are highly refined. And as for her taste? It's impeccable. Janet is extremely discriminating - when she sees the best, she won't ever settle for anything less. She would rather 'go without' than go for a poor substitute. But then that's Janet all over. It really isn't fair to call her 'stubborn as a mule.' Mules are adaptable, easy going creatures who are always eager to please - or at least, they are by comparison to Janet McKnight. Unfortunately, for a person with such expensive preferences Janet is not a millionaire ...or at least, not yet. You never know, it may just happen because Janets' relationship with money is very interesting. She treats it with a curious mixture of disdain and respect. She never lets it stand in her way, yet she will go out of her way to get it when she needs to. Janet is a smart cookie and a shrewd operator. It is not though, merely in the field of finance that Janet McKnight displays intuitive wisdom.
Janet has an affinity with nature. She can make almost any plant flower and bear fruit. This is just as well because Janet has a hearty appetite. She likes her food as indeed she likes all her creature comforts. Fond though she is of all the above - and of all life's little luxuries - there is one more source of endless fascination that Janet cannot resist. Janet doesn't so much have a hearty appetite for sensual pleasure as a ravenous hunger for it! Which is funny really because you wouldn't necessarily think it to look at her. Janet likes to play it cool. Janet likes to pretend that nothing bothers her, fazes her or excites her. Like all Taureans though, Janet McKnight is a powerhouse of passion, as those who are lucky enough to know her - or to love her - will breathlessly testify.

But the "what's in a name" thing is scary:

The name of Janet creates a restless, creative nature that takes you into many ventures, but does not allow you to see things through to a satisfactory completion. Yours is a versatile, musical, artistic, but independent nature and you must have the freedom to express your creative ideas and abilities to be happy. An urge for independence causes dissatisfaction and frustration in close relationships and you find the "ties that bind" restricting. The qualities of this name would find a more constructive outlet in work that involves high-pressure selling or promotional activities, possibly in community affairs, for it contains a positive, driving power. It is difficult for you to merge with others; although you have quickness of mind, you lack tolerance and can give way to impatience at another's slowness or shortcomings. If you cannot complete your plans when you wish to do so, you could suffer intense moods of depression and extreme sensitivity in the region of the solar plexus, resulting possibly in ulcers or nervous disorders. This name could take you into bitter experiences through impulsive action. You need more stability to find peace of mind, relaxation and happiness in life.

So much of that is freakily accurate. On the other hand, I suspect these things are phrased so that they're fairly likely to apply to a high percentage of people -- or apply to what people want/hope/fear about themselves. It's probably just a hall of mirrors really.

Does the oracle vary for anything but sun sign? Of course sharing a birthday means you and I share a sun sign a fortiori, but no one's going to call me 'deeply sensual'.

At least, no one's going to call me that and get away with it.

Owen, you're deeply sensual.

Now take your best shot.

Well, I thought it varied for gender as well, but you do indeed get exactly the same results as me. "Owen Massey is a powerhouse of passion", indeed.
