It’s election day in Canada!

I’m going to go vote soon. I don’t want to go as soon as the polls open because that what all the old people do. I’ll wait until about 10:00 AM so that I won’t have to wait in line with a bunch of geezers.

Before I came here to write this post, I looked around to see if any astrologers I know in Canada had made predictions about the election. What I found was a bunch of waffling from people who seem to overanalyze everything without actually coming to a conclusion. It’s so frustrating!

Predictive astrology isn’t my specialty (at least that kind of predictive astrology). There are people who make a point of studying the intricacies of political predictions. What I would like to see from them, and from astrologers in general, is the courage to put their reputations on the line by actually picking a horse in the race. I make predictions all the time on this blog concerning fashion and the prevailing trends. That’s my specialty, and I’m not afraid to stick my foot in my mouth as I do what I can to explore the uncharted territory of predictive astrology.

So, for those of you out there who can write a forty-part Twitter thread about an event while still not offering a single conclusion, what’s your problem? It’s not a big deal if you make a mistake. Just try to learn from it; that’s all any of us can do. Record your thoughts, describe your process, and leave a record for posterity so that we can review it in the future. That’s how you contribute to the community. Stop trying to cover all your bases by never sticking your neck out. It makes all of us look like fools who can’t answer a question without resorting to lame talking points, or a member of the Conservative Party of Canada confronted with a tough question from the press gallery.

I had to go there. I couldn’t help myself . . .
