    Default Re: Java Horoscope program running but not as intended

    Can you post the output for what the program does now
    and explain what is wrong
    and show an example of what the desired output is?


    Note: Use the equals method to compare the contents of String objects. Do not use the == operator.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
