I think the parallel with astrology is now obvious.

  • Astrologers are dealing with the entire human race and all its activities.
  • The existing state of knowledge in physical sciences cannot yet identify or isolate the forces in nature by which heavenly bodies influence human activities.

We are both dealing with statistical correlation and are trying to come to specific conclusions. But economics is a science by the first definition because it attempts to establish truth through scientific method as outlined earlier.

Astrology has not attempted to do that earlier. But all is not lost, in the Age of Aquarius, we are bound to start our inquiry into astrology using scientific methodology and this is one of the mission statements of Cyberastro.com.

I will now share with the visitors, the result of our very first, though small, step in that direction. Since September 1997, when we first set up our web site, we have collected the exact birth details of approximately 20,000 people spread over different age groups across the globe. Internet revolution makes that possible.

I give below the first analysis report from that database:

Age 0 - 20 20 - 30 30 - 40 40 - 50 50 - 60 60 - 70 Total
Aries 220 813 363 135 49 7 1587
Taurus 198 759 329 127 39 7 1459
Gemini 194 827 350 145 34 8 1558
Cancer 245 861 403 133 49 7 1698
Leo 245 851 368 166 39 10 1679
Virgo 290 928 386 165 54 8 1831
Libra 253 936 360 168 40 11 1768
Scorpio 233 883 370 155 52 9 1702
Sagittarius 183 765 324 141 41 8 1462
Capricorn 229 792 346 162 33 5 1567
Aquarius 177 647 333 127 27 6 1317
Pisces 252 756 318 139 43 10 1518
Total 2719 9818 4250 1763 500 96 19146

I showed this data to my friend Ravi Sangal, who is the President of International Data Corporation (IDC) India. IDC understands data and IDC understands statistics. He vetted the following conclusions that I have drawn from this data.

In absence of any past data on the subject, 20,000 randomly chosen samples across the globe is a valid statistical sample to represent the global population. Human beings biologically are productive throughout the year.
