The AP Takes Astrology Seriously

I finally made it to the United Astrology Conference in Denver, but the Associated Press got here first. Unlike in days of yore, when the wire services had a field day making fun of astrology, this AP article gives astro the benefit of the doubt. The AP reporter got the point that having the correct birth time is essential to making an accurate forecast.

I was happy to see that the new 11 a.m. birth time for John McCain first reported by Astrology Mundo, after being broadcast in a Mother’s Day ad, got some play at the opening ceremony, which I missed (See “Breaking News: New Birth Time for John McCain,” May 11). Of course, the maternal memory of a 90-year-old may not be reliable, but in the absence of military records, it’s worth looking at.

A new birth time for Barack Obama was also announced at the session by Dallas astrologer Joni Patry. She says an aide to Obama revealed to her that the Democratic hopeful was born at 7:11 p.m. The time most astrologers have been using for Obama is 1 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961 in Honolulu.

  1. Monica,
    I can just see it being reported by FOX that Obama was born AT a 7eleven, not actually at 7:11.
    Hello to you and Pam!

  2. Well, Chris we know you’re psychic already, but this confirms it because Fox News IS here. Let’s hope they get the news about Obama right!
    Thanks to my friend Mimi’s eagle eye, I cleaned up my American Idol post so I actually have both David Archuleta’s and David Cook’s charts in there, and Cook’s name right.
    I think David “Block” was some kind of Freudian slip because I was being “blocked” from going to UAC! Just saw Eileen McCabe’s presentation on Esoteric Astrology and she looks wonderful. The good bone structure of the Sag rising!
