When I caught a glimpse of the cover of this week’s New Yorker (dated Feb. 7, 2011), I couldn’t help but chuckle. It shows New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg admiring himself in a heart-shaped mirror with a bottle of champagne and a box of Valentine’s chocolates on the vanity. Why would I laugh?
Because I’m an astrologer, and I know that Bloomberg was born on Valentine’s Day. So this is a case of art imitating life and a perfect example of what psychologist Carl Jung called “synchronicity.”
