Astrological Musings

birth month determines careerRussell Foster, a researcher with Oxford University in the UK, has uncovered a correlation between birth month and career path.

According to researchers, a child born in December is more likely to become a dentist while someone whose birthday falls in January is more likely to become a debt collector. Those babies born in February are likely to turn their hand to painting, while March babies go on to become pilots.

Speaking earlier this year, neuroscientist Russell Foster from Oxford University says: ‘The effects are small but very, very clear. I am not going to give voice to astrology – but we are not immune to seasonal interference.

I’d like to see more details about this study but haven’t been able to find them.  Because zodiac sun signs run generally from the 20-23rd of the month people born in December and January could theoretically have the same sun sign which wouldn’t clarify the study from an astrological viewpoint.  Babies born in late February would be Pisces and therefore artistic talent could come naturally, and in late March the Aries babies would have the courage required to fly planes in the air.

I love how conventional science is willing to believe in “seasonal interference,” but thinks astrology is “mumbo jumbo.”  As Michel Gauquelin, famous astrological researcher, wrote:

Having collected over 20,000 dates of birth of professional celebrities from various European countries and from the United States, I had to draw the unavoidable conclusion that the position of the planets at birth is linked to one’s destiny. What a challenge to the rational mind!”[3]

(Neo-Astrology, 1991)

If anyone can point me to the original study, I would be quite grateful!
