Why Astrology Isnt Real Science
Hey baby what's your sign SCIENCE. GET OUT OF MY VIDEO TRACE. Hey everyone, Laci Green here for DNews. Astrology is based on the premise that celestial bodies like the sun, the moon, planets, and constellations have an effect on what happens on earth, who you are as a person, and how people behave based on when they were born. Not to be confused with ASTRONOMY, which is the study of those celestial bodies themselves their properties and placement and such. Now I have a lot of friends, and my adorable little sister particularly, who are REALLY.
INTO ASTROLOGY. It's how they start their day and the foundation for their relationships with other people, the foundation for understanding themselves. As much as I love them, the scientist within me is cringing. Nah man, naaahhhhhh. Why does astrology make scientists cringe I mean, it seems scientific enough what with all the tracking of planetary movements, star charts, and complicated formulas. But astrology isn't an actual science because.wellll 1 It's not based on evidence, 2 it's conclusions aren't testable, 3 it isn't open to review by other scientists and.my favorite, number.
4 it's un.fals.ifiable. Astrology can't be proven wrong.and that's the heart of what science is. The assertions of astrology are so general and open to interpretation that we can always find a way to see it in a factual light. We saw this effect in James Randi's famous Astrology Test. Participants were given specific horoscopes based on when and where they were born. After reading, they ALL rated their horoscope as very or extremely accurate. Then, they were passed their neighbor's horoscopeand learned that they all had the same exact one.
Other scientists have also looked at astrology's claims about careers. The idea is that being born under Mars, a supposedly warlike planet, produces more soldiers and athletes, whereas Venus produces more artistic types. In a study of 25,000 Frenchmen in the 60's, psychologist Michel Gauquelin found no correlations. He also did a study where he mixed up the birth charts of 10 murderers with 10 citizens and invited astrologers to identify which was which based on the charts. They failed miserably. A similar but larger study was published in 2007 and they found that the astrologers were EVEN MORE WRONG THAN RANDOM CHANCE. Youch.
Yet another study at the University of Manchester in 2001 looked at love compatibility by astrological sign to see if there were any trends. They had the data of 10 million couples from Census of Britain and Wales and found not a single sign pairing that showed a greater or lesser chance of romantic success. There's also the fact that the sun is no longer in a given zodiac constellation during it's designated time anymore. Although the sun is supposed to be in Aries right now, that's based on an outdated model it's actually in Pisces until April 18th. This is because.
Of precession, a phenomenon where the earth wobbles on its axis every 25,800yearcycle. Most peoples' signs that they believe they have.are actually wrong. Mine, for instance, isn't actually Libra, it's Virgo. And the description still manages to fit! Does this all mean astrology is good for nothing Well, no, of course not.it's good for entertainment! It's all good fun. My concern is that a recent report by the NSF that found almost half of Americans think Astrology is a real science. AMERICA.DUZ U KNOW HOW TO SCIENCE We still don't. The struggle continues. Thanks for joining me for DNews my fellow science geeks.
Libra and Pisces Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
In my book, Romeo and Juliet are the perfect PiscesLibra couple. These signs are both diehard romantics, after all, and I see Romeo as the Pisces because he thinks Juliet is dead so he kills himself just to be with her and the truth is, with Pisces, there's just always some confusion over what's real and what's illusion. So it's no wonder he doesn't realize she's actually just in a deep kind of sleep state. And what does he do His completely romantic, selfless instincts take over, and he offs himself because he.
Can't live without her! Ugh, but is that really true romance Did they really both have to die I don't know, I think that kind of shows the fatalistic quality of this pairing of signs. They're both romantic dreamers, and falling in love might be really fast and easy for these two, and it might just feel so overwhelming and inevitable as if it's fated but the truth is, it's only going to work out as long as reality doesn't intrude. And how long can that really last Libra and Pisces are quincunx that's a hard aspect in Astrology,.
Between signs that are five signs apart in the Zodiac and I always say it's a karmic connection. There's a strong sense of fatedness here, but that's not necessarily a good thing, and definitely isn't an easy one, because quincunx signs tend to come together to work something out. And there are just a lot of differences here, usually too many to get past, in the end. I don't know, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin she's a Libra, he's a Pisces they seem to have made it work for quite some time now. But maybe that's.
Because they're incredibly rich artists who can pay a staff of people to tend to the daytoday stuff like, you know, grocery shopping and paying bills and cooking meals and whatnot, and they can just live their dreamy artist lifestyles without really having to be a part of most people's idea of the real world! That's really an issue with these two signs Who's going to be the practical one, the one who gets things done It's going to have to be Libra, as a Cardinal sign and yet Libra and Pisces both are really indecisive, and.
Aries and Gemini Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Wow, Aries and Gemini a Fire sign and an Air sign together have you ever been sitting by a campfire when a big gust of wind blows in You know what happens sparks fly everywhere, and everyone screams and jumps up and laughs and runs around like a bunch of maniacs, right Well, that's just like when these two signs fall in love! Gemini is an Air sign, and this is a very youthful sign, no matter the age very young at heart, very playful and flirtatious and witty. And Aries is a Fire sign, the first sign of.
The Zodiac, very mememe and if you're an Aries, please know that I mean that in the most compassionate way possible. Aries is just a powerhouse of energy and purpose and drive. It's that Mars energy coming through. So these two signs, they both tend to fall in love fast, so their relationship is likely to just take off like wildfire. They always have something to talk about or to bicker about, which seems just as well. You know, Warren Beatty is an Aries, and Annette Bening is a Gemini, and they've been married for.
Over 20 years and that's almost unheard of in Tinseltown! I'm sure they've had their share of ups and downs I mean, everyone's heard the rumors about Warren cheating, right And Annette is a Gemini, the sign of the Twins, which is also the sign of bisexuality. I don't know, I'm just saying, she probably really enjoyed her role in that movie, The Kids Are All Right I mean, she got to kiss Julianne Moore, right And how bad could that be Anyway, Aries and Gemini they really do make a great couple, very fastpaced and fun. The.
Taurus and Scorpio Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
One great example of a TaurusandScorpio couple is from Pretty Woman Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. Remember them Richard's character Edward Lewis was the Taurus Mr. Success, Mr. Good Looks, Fancy Car, Fat Bank Account and Julia played Vivian Ward, the sexy hooker the Scorpio, needless to say. So in the movie, he swoops in and transforms this young, trashy escort into a classy sophisticate, with his money and good tastes. He takes her shopping on Rodeo Drive and indulges her in whatever she wants which is so.
Taurus they love treating their lover to all kinds of pleasures and indulgences. But, come on. That story may have worked back in the '90s, but please! It's so outdated! Okay, okay, I know a lot of you loved that movie, and if I'm honest, so did I. And Taurus and Scorpio, they can be a really good match. I mean, they're Opposite signs in the Zodiac, and everyone knows opposites attract. But the thing about these two signs is, when it's good, it's great I mean, a seriously deep emotional connection, not to mention hot,.
Steamy sex. But when it's not working, ugh it can be seriously awful. These signs are both just so stubborn, and when they get pissed off at each other, watch out! Scorpio starts lashing out with that Scorpion stinger, and Taurus acts like a Bull that's just been stung by a wasp or a scorpion. But in the case of Pretty Woman, it was great especially for Vivian. Both Taurus and Scorpio are the signs of money, so this story is centered on that connection but it's also a story about transformation, which is a very Scorpio.
Aries and Libra Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Aries and Libra in love now, these two create a lot of energy and fire together. Just think of wind on a brushfire it spreads the sparks everywhere, right Aries, a Fire sign, and Libra, an Air sign, work just like that together Libra makes that Aries passion just spark and spread like crazy. The quintessential AriesLibra couple, in my mind, was Bonnie and Clyde. These two what a crazy, exciting, doomed match they made! Running around the country, robbing banks and killing police officers with the Barrow Gang. The thing with.
Aries and Libra is, they're Opposite signs, and opposites truly do attract. These two probably fell in love at first sight, you know what I'm saying And I'm betting they had lots of ups and downs and crazy passion between them, because with these two signs, when it's good, it's great but when it's not, it sucks. So Clyde Barrow, the Aries he was the driving force behind their crime spree he had the courage, the guts, the daring and initiative to pursue this lifestyle of anarchy. Remember, Aries thinks like a.
Warrior. Bonnie Parker, on the other hand she was a Libra, and Libra is all about harmony and partnership. Libra wants to do whatever it takes to make it work in Bonnie's case, even if it's illegal! By all accounts, she was not at all the cigarsmoking, coldblooded killer they made her out to be in the papers. One of the Barrow Gang members even said he didn't think Bonnie had ever shot a gun at a police officer. So what was she doing with someone like Clyde Barrow My guess is, she was standing by her man, just like any Libra.
Would. She probably fell in love with the romance of it all Clyde cut a really dashing figure with his machine gun, after all, and maybe being part of a gang made Bonnie feel less lonely. Libra needs lots of love and romance and reassurance. And like a true Libra, Bonnie was gorgeous and stylish, perfect for this exciting persona the press created for the newspapers. Yeah, these two signs have a lot to offer each other, if they can appreciate their differences and their complementary strengths. And Bonnie and Clyde certainly.
Aries and Taurus Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Aries and Taurus, together in love When I think of this pairing, I immediately think of Posh and Becks you know, David Beckham, the British football star, and his wife, Victoria Beckham. Okay, she's an Aries, he's a Taurus, and these two are known for their incredible good looks and luxurious lifestyle. I mean, for a long time, Victoria was best known as Posh Spice of the Spice Girls, and she's all about modeling and high fashion she's an international style icon, for goodness' sake while David Beckham comes across.
As this downtoearth, regularJoe kind of guy well, as regular and downtoearth as a wildly rich and famous football star can be. So we blame all the poshness and luxury on her, but really, it's him. Taurus is the sign of money, after all and together, these two are supposed to be worth close to $200 million! And a lot of that is from David Beckham, who at one point was the highestpaid footballer in the world. I mean, how crazy is it to be that goodlooking AND rich Let me tell you, Victoria's a lucky youknowwhat!.
And they've been married going on 15 years, which is pretty much forever in celebrity terms. But that's not too much of a surprise, since there's always a sexual spark between two signs that are next to each other in the Zodiac, like this combo. So together, Aries and Taurus can strike a good balance, though they're really pretty different. Taurus is really stable and grounded, but Aries is impulsive and fiery, so they definitely have something to offer each other if they can appreciate their differences and make it work. But Taurus.
Aries and Leo Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Aries and Leo geez. I had two friends Sarah, who was an Aries, and Matthew, a Leo. Talk about heat, between those two! They met one night at a nightclub and the attraction was just instant. Kinetic energy between them, you know what I mean From the very start, they were just burning it up together. They were all over each other, all the time. It was so annoying the kind of couple that everyone around them is like, Get a room! But with two Fire Signs like that, there's just a huge amount of passion but that.
Means not just the tearingoffeachother'sclothes kind of passion, but also raging tempers. Sarah and Matthew, they would just go at it, arguing and bickering. And every fight was like a war a battle of wills, to the death. But the funny thing about them was, it was like, that was just part of their foreplay. It was like they fed off the energy they created together by butting heads. And then they would go kiss and make up and, you know. It was totally insane! I have to say, I always envied their heat, but I can do without that kind.
Of constant clashing in my relationship, if you know what I mean. Plus, Sarah had to learn to kind of pump up Matthew's ego sometimes, you know Because Leos, they need that they need to feel adored. And Aries, sometimes they have a hard time remembering all those little frills of romance, which are the very thing that keeps Leo's love burning. Both of these signs want to feel like they're the one in charge, so it's understandable that they got along so famously but also fought constantly. Good thing Sarah, the Aries, she.
Never stayed mad for long. Matthew, on the other hand, well, Leos can kind of hold a grudge. But Sarah was just so dynamic and energetic and who knows what other talents she had. that he could never hold onto their fights. He didn't have time he had to keep up with her! And Aries isn't the most committed sign in the Zodiac, but Leos are all about it so Matthew taught Sarah about the value of sticking with the relationship, even when things got rough sometimes. They had a really good match, and it's no wonder.
Aries and Pisces Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Okay, let's take a look at Aries and Pisces in love. One of the first couples that comes to my mind is Buffy and Angel from the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. What a great show that was! And what an incredible love affair those two had such deep passion, so many crazy ups and downs they swung between headoverheels in love and complete and utter hatred they tried to kill each other more than once, for goodness' sake! Buffy, obviously, was the Aries the slayer. She was all about power and energy and that.
Warrior spirit. She kicked butt, literally and figuratively. And she was creative in how she fought the demons and vampires that was her strength she could really think fast on her feet. And Angel, he was the Pisces the vampire with a soul. He was deeply compassionate, utterly absorbed in loving and protecting Buffy, and what a tragic guy so tortured about spending a hundred years as a ruthless killer, back when he was a vampire without a soul. So these two as a couple, whew I'm getting hot just thinking about.
It! But there's always a major sexual spark between two signs that are next to each other in the Zodiac, as Pisces and Aries are. And Pisces has a lot of intuitive understanding of who Aries is, and what makes her tick so Pisces can deal with that Aries impulsiveness and selfabsorption, which can be tough for some of the other signs. But Pisces is selfless enough to put up with it, and Aries gets a lot out of Pisces's deep, endless love when she slows down enough to pay attention and tune in, that is. It's no wonder Buffy and.
Taurus and Pisces Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Okay, Taurus and Pisces normally make a really good, solid couple they share a strong emotional connection, they really know how to romance each other, their sexual chemistry runs very strong and deep. Taurus keeps this couple stable and grounded, while Pisces keeps them together and headoverheels in love. But I'm actually going to focus on a controversial couple to explore these two signs together, and that's Chris Brown and Rihanna. So anyone who's been on the Internet or turned on the TV in the past few years knows all about the.
Awful, violent incident between these two back in 2009. So, apologies to all you Taurus men and Pisces women out there, because this really is usually a great combo. I mean, I guess that's why Rihanna keeps going back for more, even after what Chris Brown did to her but the thing is, Pisces can be very unrealistic when it comes to matters of the heart. And Rihanna's obviously not a gold digger she's a star in her own right, she doesn't need his money or his fame so it must be the strong connection between.
These two signs. And Pisces are very compassionate and understanding often to a fault. They see the best in other people, no matter what they really put the people they love up on a pedestal, and they'll give them chance after chance after chance to prove themselves as the knight in shining armor that Pisces sees them as. So really, it's not that surprising that Rihanna kept saying in interviews over the past few years that she still loved Chris Brown, or that she's now taken him back. They're back together!! Can you believe that Oh,.
My god. And Taurus, for its part, is very grounded and very committed in love, not to mention stubborn so this sign tends to stick to a relationship, no matter what, even when it's totally not working. So Chris Brown, you know, he probably just feels like he's in it for life with Rihanna. But aside from all that stuff, Taurus is a very cuddly sign, and Pisces loves being cuddled. Honestly, these two probably just adore each other, and when things are good between them, it probably feels like the height of romance.
Aries and Aquarius Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
You know, Aries and Aquarius really do make a good match. Let me tell you why. First of all, these two are just great friends from the start. They have a lot to talk about. Aquarius is an Air sign, very intellectual and progressive and fascinating. And Aries is a doer an initiator. This sign likes to take an idea and run with it, make it real. And while Aries is good at starting things, it's not so great at following through but Aquarius is a Fixed sign, which is all about determination and followthrough. Aquarius.
Can be the glue that keeps this couple together over the long term, since Aries can be the type to fall in love fast but then fall back out again. Aquarius can be the grounded one, the one who stays committed no matter what. And both of these signs are very independent, so they have no problem giving each other the space they both need. They really get that about each other. I actually have friends, Jean, she's an Aquarius, and Eddie he's an Aries. They're a couple, you know, and I have to say, it's kind of funny to watch.
Them sometimes. Jean, she's the passionate one Aries is a very fiery, passionate sign and sometimes she turns that on Eddie, who's just very coolheaded. Aquarians can even be kind of aloof, you know They aren't especially emotional people, and they definitely keep their feelings hidden. They just don't like having big, dramatic blowouts, but Aries, on the other hand, really needs to express all their emotions fast and loud, and they kind of live for big confrontations. So my friend Jean, she used to just poke at Eddie.
And goad him and sometimes just allout provoke him, just to see if she could get a rise out of him. I don't know, they've been together for a long time, so these days they aren't quite so fiery anymore. But Jean, she really keeps the passion alive, and Eddie keeps them solid, grounded, you know And they still find each other fascinating, after all these years. This is generally a really good pairing of signs for a love relationship, whether shortterm or longterm. And if it's just a shortterm thing, these two can stay friends.
Taurus and Libra Compatibility in Love by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer
Beauty and the Beast this is the perfect LibraTaurus couple. Belle, the Beauty, of course, is the Libra she just wants love and romance, and can't stand being alone. And only a Libra well, no, I take that back. There are a few other signs that would go to great lengths to kiss an ugly dude like the Beast who would keep her in finery. But Libra, that's definitely right up this sign's alley. Libras love living in luxury they want all the pretty frills, not to mention constant companionship. So, even though Libras.
Are very much into aesthetics how things look, and people too they want to be beautiful, and they want to be surrounded by other gorgeous people Belle was able to look past the Beast's looks because of how he treated her, and what he could promise her. I mean, let's face it he was filthy rich, and Belle must have loved that about him. Ugly or not, rich dudes are usually Taureans. That's the sign of money Taurus just has a way of attracting riches, and this sign loves treating its lover to any and all types of indulgence.
Whatever his sweetheart wants, the Beast wants to give her, you know what I mean Beyond all that, both Taurus and Libra are ruled by the planet Venus, which is all about romance, beauty, pleasure and there you have it. These two really understand each other on this level, so they can get seriously indulgent together. Now, that's all well and good in a fairytale, but in the real world, two luxuryloving signs together well, it can still work out well. Taurus has a serious stubborn streak, but Libra's numberone priority is partnership,.
Harmony, so Libra will do what it takes to pacify Taurus when that temper gets stirred up. But these two signs are quincunx one of the hard aspects in Astrology, and the one that comes with a lot of karma which isn't necessarily a good thing. The thing is, when two signs are quincunx, they just don't have much in common. There can be a lot of tension here because they just don't get each other. And karmically speaking, they've come together because they have something big to work out together. So that's a lot.
