The research was carried out by Dr Mark Hamilton from the University of Connecticut, linking astrology to celebrity status.
In his study he claims that the time you were born, is the biggest factor.
Traditional Western astrology uses elements (water, earth, air, and fire), sign duality (bright/dark), and sign qualities (cardinal, mutable, and fixed) to describe and categorize seasonal effects on personality.
Hamilton considers late December through early March as a “wet” time of year, and connects wetness with creativity, for example. “Fixed” signs are said to be more stubborn and persistent than others.
It looked at the same data from the original paper, a set of 300 celebrities from the fields of politics, science, public service, literature, the arts, and sports. He found that celebrities’ birth dates tended to cluster at certain times of the year.
“Wet” signs were associated with a larger number of celebrities, as were signs classified as “bright” and “fixed.”
“Psychologists want to dismiss these astrological correlations, but there are seasonality effects that we have yet to explain.”
Hamilton is not arguing that heavenly bodies are the true source of these effects; rather that astrological aspects are just useful tools, or heuristics, that help people remember the timing and patterns of nature.
