New Release: A Scheme of Heaven: The History of Astrology and the Search for our Destiny in Data by Alexander Boxer
According to data scientist Alexander Boxer, humans are pattern-matching creatures, and astrology is our grandest pattern-matching game. For his newly released book ‘A Scheme of Heaven: The History of Astrology and the Search for our Destiny in Data’ Alexander traces horoscopes back to their origins by examining classical texts which reveal astrology’s underlying science and mathematical framework. He then puts them to the test using modern data set and statistical science, showing that scientists now are doing work similar to astrologers from centuries ago.
Mercury Retrograde Shadow Is Making Its Mark
If you search the web for the dates of the first Mercury Retrograde period of 2020, the general response is that it begins on February 17 and ends March 10. But many astrologers, including The Astrology Show’s own Jessica Adams always remind us that the shadow period, both before and after the main dates, can be just as chaotic. And this week we have a classic example of Mercury Retrograde Shadow throwing the travel and communication side of life into chaos, with the coronavirus originating in Wuhan already causing total mayhem for hundreds of thousands of travellers and tourism around the globe, potentially millions of WhatsApp users around the globe losing their data and connection to the popular app and heatwaves accompanied by bushfires still burning Australia.
Read Jessica’s November 11, 2019 Mercury Retrograde blog here for her predictions.
Chani Nicholas Makes the Headlines Again…
In our Top 5 last week, we mentioned the recent release of popular US based astrologer Chani Nicholas book ‘You Were Born for This: Astrology for Radical Self-Acceptance.’ So, it would be remiss of us not to mention an article The Guardian published just a few days later on Thursday, January 30th – an opinion piece by Jessa Crispin, the host of The Public Intellectual Podcast, who has penned her view on what she calls the new ‘astrology’ trend. Under the headline ‘I Love Astrology. But the current craze has it all wrong,’ Jessa’s article was subsequently tweeted left, right and centre.
Melbs bb Launches Single Inspired by Astrology
The Australian singer-songwriter Melbs bb is quite open about how beneficial astrology has been for her and has used her latest song as a way to vent about the various personalities in her life along with the lyrics reflecting on the amount of time she has spent on the app Co-star! She has even intertwined a quirky take on the different astrology signs into her latest single ‘Astrology (clothesline)’. The video for the indie-rock song? A house party where all the guests who’ve rocked up have differing sun signs and apparently the personalities to match. You can watch the amusing video on YouTube.
