Re: Astrology research in R?

Yes, I've seen quite a few of David Cochrane's videos. I think he's doing excellent work for this whole area. I have considered getting Sirius (that's his software I believe) since I know he talks...

Re: Astrology research in R?

Indeed, I was just thinking of emailing him today! I will do my best with some fixes I'm working on for the time being, and as a next step I will reach out to Dr. Treindl.

Also might I add that...

Astrology research in R?

Maybe it's a bit of a long shot, but I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about conducting astrological research in the statistics language R. The gold standard for astrology data is the Swiss...

Re: Ethical questions of predicting events

Well my only aim was to compare natal chart astrology to predictive astrology. And then, if you like, natal chart astrology to these other professions you have described.

If an astrologer says...

Re: Ethical questions of predicting events

Thank you a lot, Jupiter. I am excited to see your posts on this, especially since they contain some back-and-forth and disagreement. (I like those things :cool:).

Here is my tentative point of...

Re: Myers briggs + zodiac sign poll

MBTI is fun but unsophisticated and represents where we have been as a human race, not where we are going.

Things like "I prefer feelings to logic" and "I'm intuitive, I don't sense" are just a...

Re: How did you choose between Western and Vedic?

Thanks for the responses...

Re: House Systems in Vedic
