Birth date and personality

Some new research has astrologers in a spin. They’re claiming that scientists are now discovering what they knew all along. The scientists say it’s all down to biology.

Last week, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that birth date can affect personality.

Research has revealed the time of year a person is born can influence his or her personality, health and even whether they are male or female. But rather than being written in the stars, studies are showing that it is the season of birth that predisposes individuals to different traits.

So it seems it’s not really about astrology but about the time of year and the circumstances surrounding our birth. It would appear that it has a lot more to do with whether we’re born in a hot or cold month and the kinds of foods our mothers ate during their pregnancy than what ‘star sign’ we’re born under.

My regular Wednesday morning guest on 98.5 Sonshine FM is Ross Clifford who is the Principal of Morling College in New South Wales and current President of the Baptist Union of Australia. Each week we chat about a range of issues relating to spirituality and belief.

We looked at the latest research on air today and talked about our connection with the planet and our universe. Are we really a product of the seasons? You can hear our discussion using the media player below.
