I just wrote this... Seems like it would be as good as anything else.
if [ $[`expr '(' $RANDOM '*' 2 / 32767 ')'`] -eq 1 ]; then echo "Today will be awesome"; else echo "Back to bed, today will suck"; fi
A shorter version, for Bash:
(($RANDOM % 2)) && echo "Today will be a good day" || echo "Back to bed, today will stink"

Add wanda the fish to your gnome-panel, it gives fortunes. If you follow what it tells you, then it works for sure.
Here is a screenshot of the applet in the panel applets list:
And one of the fish telling you your unfortunate future D: (oh no!)
please remember, wanda is a fish... be careful trusting her too much.

Check this http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Environment/Screenlets/Horoscope-36983.shtml
This is a screenlet that displays today's forecast from astrology.yahoo.com.
You can configure it to show your zodiac in the screenlet.
Hope this helps.

Any horoscope/astrology app is only as good as its input. So you won't find much, there could be something that reads it data back from sites like http://astrology.yahoo.com.
As for your upgrade question, you should upgrade to 9.10 and then to 10.04. The Update Manager (System > Administration > Upgrade Manager) will ask you to upgrade. If it doesn't you might need to update the Software Sources (System > Administration > Software Sources) to warn you about new release. In the Updates tab change the new distribution releases.
new distribution releases
openastro.org is a good one.
Here is a tutorial to upgrade from 9.04 to 10.04:
