In the third episode of The Chosen Ones, host Gavin Haynes dives into the world of horoscope-obsessed astrologists based in his London hometown.
No matter how developed a society becomes, no matter how much they give rights to gays or develop nuclear fusion technologies, the idea of a future written in stars has been surprisingly potent to all sorts of people who are otherwise brain surgeons or lawyers or run F500 companies.
Gavin will put himself in the hands of lunar fixers, Indian Vedic astrologers, birth chart readers and whoever it is who writes the horoscopes in the Metro, to find out his personal destiny as a Scorpio and whether or not there is something we can all learn from astrology.
