A research that analyzed the birthdays of all 20 million husbands and wives in England and Wales failed to reveal any evidence of attraction or compatibility between people of particular star signs.

Love not in the stars

Lonely hearts who turn to horoscopes to find their perfect partner are wasting their time, according to the largest test of astrology ever carried out.

Dr David Voas from The University of Manchester said that zodiac ‘love signs’ have no impact on our chances of marrying â and staying married.

The Senior Research Fellow at the University’s Centre for Census and Survey Research analysed the birthdays of all 20 million husbands and wives in England and Wales.

The investigation â using 2001 census data â failed to reveal any evidence of attraction between star signs.

    Guys I know this study doesn’t seem relevant but it is because there’s thousands of people out there trying to prove that there’s a correlation, of course they cherry pick the data but still.

    It’s been proved that insulting people for their beliefs doesn’t help with stopping those beliefs, that’s why we need to try to hold conversations with respect. And I know it’s hard, believe me, the thought of someone believing in astrology, flat earth or some anti vaccine thing stresses me out. But I prefer to give them a chance of reasoning instead of pushing them away even more that they’re now. That rabbit hole can go a long way and I prefer that they stay in a place where they’re still reachable.

    I used to have a coworker believe in that stuff. I read off a horoscope for a different sign pretending it was for him and asked him if it was true for him. He agreed 100%. When I told him what sign it was for he got angry and left the room.

    Carl Jung wrote once about mandala symbolism and the I-Ching, explaining that the way divining tools work is by giving our conscious minds “permission” to listen to our own subconscious, our own real thoughts and values. I think of astrology as a similar device.
