Separation of Religion and Government in Retrograde: The impact of star signs on BC Legislative politics

The Legislative Assembly of British Columbia currently opens each sitting with “prayer and reflections” but this begs the question of why members have thus far refused to explore other alternative supernatural means of promoting prosperity in the province - specifically astrology. This report analyses the star signs for sitting MLAs for whom birthdays were available (n=59/87). It draws a number of headline grabbing conclusions by analyzing MLA star and moon signs. Additional analysis is conducted along party lines, and the report also considers the astrological balance of the cabinet. This leads to a number of obvious conclusions: that the BC Legislature hire an official astrologer, invest in other forms of divination, and that the birth dates for every MLA and political candidate be made publicly available.
