Hello, this is my first post here...I have recently finished a memoir project with another writer and both of us have used horoscopes from nationally syndicated sources throughout the memoir. My question: do I need to obtain permission from the astrologers or can I get away with just citing the source of the horoscopes (ie. Washington Post, etc.)? There are numerous articles out there that seem to lift quotes and whatnot from other articles and they seem to get away with it without being sued as long as they cite the source. Would the same rules apply? Do horoscopes fall under public domain? I would really prefer to not get permission because if one or more astrologers say no, it will have a huge, negative impact on our book, possibly barring it from any chance of being published. Any advice you can give would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks!
Michael
