It’s a boy – psychic fail

They had a 50/50 chance but the majority of psychics in the U.K. got it wrong.

Psychic Source Survey Predicts Baby Princess for Kate and William – Press Release – Digital Journal.

On July 9th, 62% of the 50 psychics surveyed at Psychic Source, the most respected psychic service provider, predicted that the royal couple will be welcoming a female heir.

Representing the majority of psychics surveyed, Psychic Ricky stated matter-of-factly: “It will be a girl. At least one of her names will be Diana.”

There were even some “scientific” predictions based caloric intake (that does not seem to really matter). Fail.

However, there were some psychic prediction that it would be a boy. Oh, big stretch there. But I’ll bet those lucky to have chosen that option will be milking it. Now, what is the astrological sign? Well, that’s a conundrum.

Exactly one half hour separated whether Kate and Prince William’s royal baby would be the sensitive type or the supremely confident type — the cutoff line for becoming a Cancer was 4:54 p.m. GMT on July 22, just thirty minutes after His Royal Highness was born.

As a Cancer, the new prince joins other royals like Princess Diana, and of course his own father, William!

Astrology experts also believe that His Royal Highness will have some specific characteristics because he was born just before the Cancer cutoff line. “If the baby is born before 4:54 p.m. GMT he will be a Cancer — like father William — but his moon will be in Capricorn, which is the same star-sign as mother Kate,” Deike Begg, an astrologer with The Association of Professional Astrologers International told Mail Online.

Because astrology is so damn precise, a half-hour makes all the difference.

This is outrageously ridiculous.

Astrology is BULLS**T.

    I’ve been contemplating the phrase “most respected psychic service provider” and giggling helplessly.

    So it’s a boy, and true to form most “psychics” didn’t see that coming…

    I’m not kidding, one psychic supposedly has said the baby is GAY. I’m trying to see if this is just a joke from a UK friend that knows I am a skeptic, as I teased her (a believer) about how the psychic she believes in got the sex wrong.

    I tried very very hard to not offend my neighbor how I felt about this when she told me about it. I just repeated what I had heard on NPR’s “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me” podcast; “Babies are born every minute!”

    I think I got my feelings across.
