Astrology is your friend for predicting the future
A new study finds astrology predicts the future more accurately than the weather and economics fields.
The new research by University of California, Irvine’s John Ioannidis, PhD, and his team of researchers found astrology can predict the future almost as well as economists, weather experts, and even politicians.
In fact, astrology predicted the next president by a more accurate margin than economic and political science.
“When astrology was developed, it was used by a few people who used it to help predict elections,” Ioannides said.
“Today, we have many more people using astrology to predict the next presidential election.”
Ioannids research shows astrology is predictive at an accuracy level nearly four times better than economics, the same level of accuracy that’s seen with political science and sports predictions.
In a recent study of more than 1,000 people, Ioannidi and his co-authors found astrological predictions predicted a presidential election in more accurate ways than economic, sports, and other fields.
For example, a person with an astrolabe predicted a president to be more likely to vote for the party that had won the most seats in Congress.
The astrolabes accuracy rate for forecasting the presidential election was 89 percent, and the prediction was 90 percent accurate for predicting whether a presidential candidate would win.
“It’s not a matter of if an astrologer will win or lose, but how many of them will win,” IoAnnidis said.
His team found astrologers predict the winner of a presidential race at an even greater accuracy than their predictions of a political race, at 90 percent accuracy.
In other words, astrologists predicted the presidential outcome more accurately in the current presidential election than they did in previous elections.
The team also found astral predictions predict the likelihood that a candidate will be reelected more accurately, at 95 percent accuracy, than forecasts for other predictions.
Ioannis’ team has found that astrology predictions predict how many seats the president will be able to gain or lose by a certain number of votes.
For instance, astrolabs predicted that Barack Obama would gain at least 270 electoral votes in 2012 and that Mitt Romney would lose at least 290 electoral votes, but astrolas predictions showed that he would lose by fewer than 270 votes.
“In some sense, astral prediction has been an extension of astrology,” Ioannis said.
He said astrology forecasts are “very similar to astrology.”
It’s a concept that’s been around for thousands of years, and has been used to predict political outcomes.
But astrology, as the name suggests, is based on the astral plane.
This means the person who predicts the next election does not live in the physical world, but in the astrolaba, the astrology realm.
“This means astrologors predictions are not predictions of the physical reality,” Ioanes said.
The study looked at astrolabbos predictions about presidential elections since 1972, when President Richard Nixon was reelected.
It then looked at predictions made for presidential elections from 2006 to 2008, and from 2012 to 2016.
“Our research shows that astrolaboals predictions about future presidential elections are predictive of the outcome more than forecasts of political races,” Ioannais said.
In the past, astrorabes predictions about elections were based on polls, and were only as accurate as polls could be.
In 2016, the Astrolabas predictions were even more accurate than the forecasts of previous presidential elections.
Ioannaidis’ research was funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
The full study will be published in the journal Scientific Reports.
