Astrological Musings

Thanks to Astrococktail’s news section for this tidbit:

“What’s Your Sign? Design,” a show premiering at 9 p.m. Saturday, looks to the zodiac to bring harmony to star-crossed couples, roommates and homeowners. Hosted by Steven Lee, the show features interior designer Nicole Facciuto and astrologer Greg Tufaro, all Manhattanites, and who together will demonstrate that the solution to decorating dilemmas may lie in making your space more Aries than airy, adding pieces of Pisces or letting your inner Leo roar.

Each week, Tufaro reads the chart of each household member, based on his or her date, time and location of birth and maps a customized chart. Facciuto listens for style clues as Tufaro breaks down each individual’s likes and dislikes, based on planetary positions in the charts, highlighting the shared traits between the signs they’re dealing with and looking for elements that will please and balance everyone. Then, armed with a $2,000 budget, the team creates a plan for a 48-hour makeover.

Malverne resident Colleen Brady, … was ready to take the challenge. “Danny and I are both Geminis, which was something that they found interesting, because, although we have the same sign, we have two completely different personalities. Danny … has been in theater since he was 7, and I can’t sing.”

This to me is great, because it sounds like the show will point out that real astrology is about so much more than sun signs. However, it appears that design using astrology is not universally effective:

Indeed, Facciuto says most participants “really love” the results. “It’s funny,” she says, “because in the shows where someone didn’t love it, it was either we completely missed the board — you know, you can’t win ’em all — or one person liked it and the other didn’t.”

Still, it’s very exciting to see real astrologers casting real charts and demonstrating to millions of viewers what astrology really can do. As Facciuto, the designer said: “”I was skeptical. “But it’s almost like astrology goes into your core and pulls out what you never even thought you knew you’d like.”
