Astrologers Miss the Mark

Astrologers and clairvoyants had another poor year in 2005 in terms of predictions coming true!

Mathematician Klaus Kunkel of the Society for Scientific Research of Para-Sciences in Rossdorf, Germany, examined the predictions of 27 astrologers and clairvoyants.

Almost none of them came true. Astrologer Monika Transier of Berlin, for example, erroneously predicted the deaths of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, actress Doris Day and Prince Philip and claimed there would be an assassination attempt on U.S. President George W. Bush.

Clairvoyant Martin Schmid accurately foretold the death of Pope John Paul II, but the pontiff was already weak and couldn’t speak when he made the prediction in February. The pope died in April -- one month earlier than Schmid predicted.

German astrologer Patricia Bahrani predicted a landslide victory for the Christian Democrats in Germany. Elke Regendoerp, on the other hand, saw an alliance of Social Democrats and Post-Communists take over in Berlin. In truth, the close election outcome resulted in a coalition of Christian and Social Democrats.
