PF member turbo-1 predicted that some superstitious Red Sox fans would attach some mystical significance to the lunar eclipse during the final game of the World Series. So far, fortunately, I have not seen too much of that in the news, although I have not asked many fans about it. I did find one article about an astrologer's & a numerologist's thoughts on the win... http://www.portsmouthherald.com/news/10292004/news/45461.htm Out of curiousity, can someone explain what "in 5 degrees of Taurus" means? Correct me if I'm mistaken, but the sun is not anywhere near the constellation Taurus this month (since Taurus shows up at night nowadays). Ever been to Venus? Hmm...aren't the sun & Venus always positioned closely? (suggesting we should always have pleasant experiences, if we are to follow the astrologer's logic). I assume there was a specific positioning that was significant to the astrologer. Can someone clarify? Always? (any statistical analysis of this claim?) This is the first I've heard of places having astrological ties. I assume it's based on the founding date of that city/state. Is this a common astrological practice? Is it standard practice for numerologists to add up the digits of dates or was it just convenient in this case. And since "2004" and "fans" applies to St Louis just as much as it does Boston, then why didn't both teams have good fortune (instead of St Louis being shut-out)?
