VWs Get Uranus-Neptune Mutual Reception
Trendspotting astrologer Philip Brown has the zodiacal explanation for the ongoing explosion of interest in virtual worlds: a Uranus-Neptune mutual reception that’s having noticeable effects on pretty much everyone under the sun:
The Uranus-Neptune mutual reception creates a longing for a Utopia and, since the everyday real world sorely lacks such perfection, the online world is becoming the closest thing some people have to a Utopian community.
Brown goes on to give Habbo Hotel and Neopets as examples, and mentions that he talks about avatars in his forthcoming book. Be warned, though: the current mutual reception lasts only until 2011. Let’s hope the virtual world is firmly established by then. To that end: someone get this guy into Second Life. I want my avatar’s chart read.
