Now, we have Unang Hirit, a morning show on GMA, inviting an astrologer to talk about what's in store for Filipinos and the Philippines in general for this brand new year. The astrologer named Suzette Arandela aka Madam Suzette and the five hosts of the show spent nearly eight minutes talking about people being lucky in love or lucky in travel based on their Chinese zodiac signs.
This is an annual affair in the Philippines and in many other parts of the world. When a new year rolls in, the airwaves and the tubes are bombarded with these "lucky star" and "predictions" stuff. For people who are aware of how non-sensical these are, watching television can induce a lot of head-shaking and teeth-gnashing.
And yes, natural disasters, they will be wrecking havoc to the Philippines this year, says Arandela. Filipinos will be facing a lot of earthquakes and flash floods. The thing is we face these every year. You don't need an astrologer to know that earthquakes and flash floods will be hitting the archipelago.
Arandela is turns out is also an economist. We are just two days into 2015 and she says (without batting an eye) that this year's economy will be better than last year. Maybe the Malacanang Palace should consider taking her into its fold as an economic adviser.
Philippine politics this year according to the astrologer is going to be "medyo magulo". Philippine politics has always been "magulo". This prediction is similar to saying Sunday will follow Saturday.
Arandela also seems to have psychic powers. If you are a fan of the sport of boxing, raise your hands and rejoice because according to the astrologer, the highly-anticipated slugfest between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. is going to happen. If not this year, then in 2016.
