Today, I found this article in the Oct. 29, 2019 email newsletter from Smithsonian.com:

Astrologers Predict 1929 Will Be Year of Prosperity
April 5, 2012 from SmithsonianMag.com

It points out "an article in the December 30, 1928 issue of the Ogden Standard-Examiner from Ogden, Utah" which made some quite erroneous predictions about 1929, like:

"The year draws to a close with an abundance of capital for all needs and public developments, and unlimited credit for the worker."

End of quote.


However, that's from just one astrology prediction article from 1928! What might someone find if they looked at all the available astrology prediction articles from 1928, without cherrypicking only the correct or incorrect predictions?

I don't know, but it seems like an interesting question to me, even though I'm currently not in the mood to drop everything and try to research it.


Lately, I've been reading the very amusing book Loserthink by Scott Adams, the creator of the hilarious comic Dilbert.

Here's a quote from that book, which I'm guessing is probably applicable to both astrology and actual science:

"If all you know is how many times someone hit a target, it is loserthink to judge how accurate they are. You also need to know how many times they missed."

End of quote.


Hopefully, this book will be available on your local library's OverDrive website, which has legally free ebooks you can borrow and read on your computer or phone:
