Who Knew?

The WaPo reports votes on Obama's stimulus bill by Astrological sign, although, oddly, they list the signs in alphabetical order.

I'm no astrologist, but the results are interesting. There are 55 crabby Cancers in Congress, 50 two-faced, fast-talking Geminis, 45 people-pleasing Libras, and 42 critical Virgos. Only 33 idealistic Aquarians and a mere 29 each of practical Capricorns, free-spirited Sags, and stubborn Taureans.

What explains all those Cancers?

Picture found here.

The USA is a Cancer sun sign, I think.

No Scorpios? Sheesh, no wonder they can't get anything done!

We could do some statistical tests on the distribution to see if it could have come about randomly or not.

Of course those tests need to know if people are born about equally under all the twelve signs. They might not be (in the U.S. at least). It could be that more babies are born in the summer, say.

Just wanted to say hi and let you know that I have put your blog on my sideboard. I am a mom, wiccan, a nurse, pagan, and am very happy to find someone with similar beliefs here on the web. I will be visiting often.

Blessed Be
and Namaste

Yes the USA is a Cancer nation. Plus Cancer is the sign of millionaires-the need to nurture and protect and that is done easily with lots of money. Also Cancers have a tendency to believe that Mother knows best-that is a figure of speech

OOOH! and watch the uninformed prejudice-I am Gemini. I think that I am loyalbut have been known to say to family and other loved ones"well I am not changing it is only that the world is changing and so I am reporting on a changing scene.) Love to you always.
