Re: A Persuit To Unify Astrology And Science - A New Community On Reddit

I recommend "Cosmic Clocks" by Michel Gauquelin (if you don't know it already). I thought his investigations into a scientific basis for astrology was really intriguing. His inquiry (well, the part I was interested in) revolved around showing the effects of magnetic fields on behavior, patterns coinciding with lunar/solar cycles, and generally a sophisticated approach that demands more attention and followup than it ever got, imo.

For some reason all anyone seemed interested in was the "Mars Effect" which was later discredited because of selection bias.

Investigations that I think would be really worthwhile is looking at circadian rhythms in conjunction with solar/lunar cycles and migration patterns/navigation using magnetic fields (showing biological sensitivity to them).
