YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Aquarius): NOV. 6, 2017: You and your future

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Aquarius): NOV. 6, 2017: You and your future

Your scientific horoscope: Today is a good day to work on that time-travel machine you’ve had on the back burner. However, if you are visited by your future self, and he/she tells you to stop, don’t listen. There is little evidence that in the future you will not be paranoid, delusional, and a gifted liar. There is also no reason to think the myth, ‘If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust” is right. Why should you listen to your future self? They’re likely even more messed up than you are now, what with having to have been you for all this time. That can’t have been easy. So just smile at them and nod and let them feel like they’ve done some good in telling you what to avoid or embrace. Aquarius, you may want to listen to one or two things. There is likely something important in all the falderal you are about to hear from the future you. Still, take it with a grain of salt, give it a once over just to be sure you don’t miss something, but don’t take it as gospel.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Gemini): Nov. 2, 2017: Of Stuff and Nonstuff

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Gemini): Nov. 2, 2017: Of Stuff and Nonstuff

Your Scientific Horoscope: In general the universe is thought to consist of two things: Stuff (e.g, dragonflies, pancakes, electrons, clouds, etc.) and Non-stuff (e.g., the gap between protons and electrons, empty sets, etc.). Today vote for your favorite. If you had to live without one, which would it be? Gemini, I know you have trouble picking, so think about what life would be like without either one.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Leo): OCT. 28, 2017: Time flies

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Leo): OCT. 28, 2017: Time flies

Your Scientific Horoscope: If you started with 5 parthenogenetic flies (females can self fertilize their eggs) that don’t need to eat, and they had 2 children every 5 days, you would have an earth-sized ball of flies in about a year and a half. Today, think about how hard it would be to have a decent picnic on that planet. Leo, having a picnic on a planet of flies is a metaphor for how your day will go. Beware.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Cancer): OCT. 10, 2017: Visions

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Cancer): OCT. 10, 2017: Visions

Your Scientific Horoscope: Hildegard von Bingen was a Twelfth Century nun, poet, naturalist, musician, painter, (a real Renaissance woman–before the Renaissance!). She had terrible migraines that she interpreted as messages from on high. She turned her visual disturbances into visions and painted those visions. She turned the crushing pain into music still played nine centuries later. Today take your sufferings and make of them something to give beauty to the eons. Not because you should. Because you can. Cancer, you will change the world with your visions. I hope you do, those in the 30th Century will thank you. If not that’s OK too. Suffering is such that no one is allowed to decide or judge what you do or don’t do.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (ARIES): OCT. 6, 2017: TROUBLE’S STICKINESS

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (ARIES): OCT. 6, 2017: TROUBLE’S STICKINESS

Your Scientific Horoscope: Researchers have discovered recently that spiderwebs don’t just stick to prey insects, they fly toward them when the little victim get close because the sticky coating on the web has a small electrostatic charge (you know, like those little individual candy wrappers you try to throw into the garbage and they fly somewhere else). Today ponder how sometimes you just have to ground yourself a little more so you’ve discharged that leftover static that draws trouble. Aries, no need to go looking for trouble it will find you. That is unless, you can see the webs before they’re close. Be observant. It’s your only hope.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Pisces): Oct. 3, 2017: Time Traveling Beast Coming

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Pisces): Oct. 3, 2017: Time Traveling Beast Coming

Your Scientific Horoscope: Scientists have discovered that sometime today you will face a time traveling beast both fierce and cunning. Your task will be to outwit it by doing things today before it arrives that will reverberate down the timeline into the future and destroy it. It will take all your wits, imagination and cunning. If it doesn’t show, good job. You did it. Pisces I wouldn’t procrastinate this until after lunch–just saying.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Lybra): SEPTEMBER 15, 2017: GOODBYE CASSINI!

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Lybra): SEPTEMBER 15, 2017: GOODBYE CASSINI!

Today the Scientific Horoscope honors and celebrates the Cassini-Huygens Saturn Probe which passed away today in a glorious decent into the very planet of which it provided so much knowledge. Cassini was launched in October making it a Libra. In an age when science is being maligned, it is wonderful to demonstrate the power of its scope and accomplishments. Kudos to the teams of scientists, engineers, helpers, and visionaries that made this possible. Goodbye Cassini. You did good.

A few pictures taken by our beloved probe.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Sagittarius): September 4, 2017: Choose Wisely

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Sagittarius): September 4, 2017: Choose Wisely

Your Scientific Horoscope: Later today you will be offered a choice by a mysterious stranger. You will be asked to choose from: (a) an invisibility cloak; (b) a pint of ale from the Prancing Pony in Bree; or (c) a clipping from the mane of Aslan. The first will give you power but corrupt you. The second will grant you wisdom, but you won’t remember it when you need it. The third will clog your drain. Sagittarius, I’m afraid there has been some confusion on your choice, you will be given (a) an invisible pint of ale; (b) Aslan’s cloak; or (c) a clipping from the tail of a prancing pony. This reflects of how your entire week will go, but remember, while your choice will not grant you any power per se, think about which option may fetch a fair price on ebay and cut your losses to salvage a week of mixups and confusion.

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Scorpio): AUGUST 26, 2017: On spiders

YOUR WEEKLY SCIENTIFIC HOROSCOPE (Scorpio): AUGUST 26, 2017: On spiders

Opiliones Daddy-long-legs
Your Scientific Horoscope: Many people think the North American daddy-long-leg spider is the most poisonous spider on Earth, but their mouth is too small to get purchase. Today, test this. Find one (likely in the grass against a house’s foundation) and offer it the soft skin between your ring and little finger. Get it to bite you. Could you? What was the medical result? Do this with a black widow spider. What was the medical result? Compare damage. If you survive, which would you call more poisonous? Scorpio, your namesake is also known to deal out venom. This week ponder ways you threaten toxin to keep those you suspect will do you harm at bay. Today, put away your sting and pretend you are a roly-poly. Let people pick you up and roll you around in the palm of your hand. How was it? Sometimes the best defense is benign playfulness. Of course, keep the stinger handy, just in case. Some people really do want to squash you.
