Unless there's something else going on here that I haven't discovered, my tentative conclusion is that this represents positive proof of correlation between events and planetary positions which (hopefully) anyone can perform. I'll preempt skepticism, or at least get it oriented, by pointing out that it's just a bunch of graph bars that depend on a conceptual model. My qualified rebuttal is that it apparently shows pattern associations that haven't been previously demonstrated, and pattern associations are what humans look for.
Below are 6 screenshots of the Horostat program analyzing 323 charts representing the dates of online purchases.
This first group represent the difference between random and non-random association. Random association in the aspect charts is recognized by hits on a broad range of planets indicating that none were significantly unique.
- Graph 1 (left) represents the aspect: Biquintile by Kepler (16 to 20 deg). Biquintile, is considered to be bogus by many astrologers, and this graph indeed shows what appears to be (mostly) random association.
- Graph 2 (right) Shows possible positive association for Keplers aspect Sesquiquadrate (133 to 137 deg).
Johannes Kepler was hired, to discover "The Harmony of the Spheres", which had been a big deal since Aristotle claimed that it had to exist, and while he (Kepler) was at it, he discovered the math that describes the physics of planetary motion. His theory of planetary harmony is represented by the 5 aspects named after him, at least 3 of which turned out to be baloney even though he did get the math right (a sound lesson for everyone but me).
- Graph 3 (Below left) showing a positive tendency for the incidence of planets within one degree departing semi-square aspect, note the complete absence of the Moon and Mercury which are also very mobile and just as likely to be aspected by other random planets, if the aspects were in fact random.
- Graph 4, (Below right) shows planets within 6 degrees departing Opposition aspect. 6 degrees is an industry standard for departing major aspects and raises the odds of finding any planets within it's orb of influence simply because it's a bigger orb. But please note that the odds are not six times bigger than those of Semi-square aspect on the left with 1 degree orb.
Note that the Part Of Fortune is active in 3 graphs. I never would have thought it had a real effect. Maybe the other Arabic Parts are real too, somebody should do a study or pay me to write some software to find out (a good idea!). I chose to show the Departing orbs because it has a distinctive signature because of the way the program is written. The Applying orb shows the same planets but they're spread out horizontally instead of vertically across the graph, and the effect is less apparent. Both orbs combined looks even more muddled and it takes some study before the light turns on.
- The code for finding an aspect goes something like this:
(then do statistics with the number values in CountUpBooleans vs AllChartsCounted, and bubble-up the highest numbers to the top w/ their associated planet attached via an integer array). If you were a geek, you'd swoon to know that.
if FastPlanetDeg = (SlowPlanetDeg + FastPlanetsDepartingOrb[X]) then DepartingBoolean[X] = true;
... yada yada ...
If DepartingBoolean[X] = true, then CountUpBooleans = CountUpBooleans + 1;
- It's taken 10 years to compile this data because my sales are usually slow, and some records were lost to several computer crashes. Also I go off my feed when people smile patronizingly at the mention of Astrology.
- Through human history, there have always been people who will turn something that looks like truth into an industry. Two examples off-hand are Astrology and religious schools such as Pat Robertson University. Astrology has been around 1000 times longer than PRU, and it's charlatans are historically peerless in the art of embellished plausabilies. Ancient Astrologers have in fact set the current standard for religious hype. Only since the invention of statistics has PRU out-shown Astrology because faith needs no proof, and leaves no paper trail. I confess that I do still have reservations about my programs assertion though, because unless their absolute effect can be predicted and verified, it's just conjecture. These graphs may represent only a statistical coincidence. To convince, there needs to be (a) more sets of 250+ charts representing a variety of Category topics, and (b) some kind of feedback review.
