Chinese fortune tellers, keen to get on the SEO-bandwagon that is the royal baby, told the AFP that the new prince will be stubborn but a hit with the opposite sex.
Hong Kong-based feng shui fortune teller Mak Ling-ling said that the Prince of Cambridge will likely “have to go overseas, perhaps representing the army” (the prince’s father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all served in the military), Mak also looked forward to another royal wedding, saying the prince would marry “between 30 and 35 years of age” (Prince Charles was 33 when he first married, Prince William 29).
The baby’s “Bazi” – the fate-setting traits linked to the exact time and date of his birth – also mean that he is likely to have siblings, [Au Chung-tak] added.
The advantage of being a royal one presumes, is that there are people to take care of a new baby for you so you don’t have to interrupt your sex life.
It wasn’t just Chinese charlatans that were keen to spout some useless platitudes about the prince:
According to Western astrology, the prince is a Cancerian and predicted to be a sensitive character who will “transform” the royal family.
Meanwhile, Indian mystics predicted that the new prince would one day stand for elected office and would improve Britain’s relations with the rest of the world.
In more serious fortune telling news, the SCMP reports that some jobseekers in China are facing discrimination based on their zodiac sign:
Xu Jingmin, a college graduate and recent victim of such “zodiac discrimination”, said she was disheartened after finding out she matched all the qualifications of a job opening at a travel agency except its requirement for the applicant’s zodiac sign.
“We are looking for Geminis, Libras, and Aquarius,” the ad allegedly said. This means Xu, who is a “Leo,” was disqualified.
As if this wasn’t stupid enough a policy already, the dates we use to measure zodiac signs are completely wrong.
