If the Chi Square calculation is going to work correctly, it is of vital importance to have the E values correct - i.e. the expected values. In the following each aspect to the Sun will be dealt with regarding the E value.
forms only 1 aspect to the Sun - and that's the conjunction. The only way to determine what to expect is to run an experiment with a number of shuffled or randomized data and take a look at the outcome. The data is shuffled by finding a random date +/- 5 years
from the original date. This procedure is carried out 20 times, rendering a shuffled data set of 25,200 new dates.
The shuffled data contained 9,019 Sun-Mercury conjunctions, when the orbis was set to 12 degrees. The relation between 9,019 and 25,200
is 1:2.79, which renders a factor of 0.3579. With 2,520 male murderers in the collection we can expect 901.9 Sun-Mercury conjunctions. Using the simple Chi Square formula we can deduce that we need either more than 960 or less than 844 observed Sun-Mercury
conjunctions to have a statistical signficant result. But only 927 Sun-Mercury conjunctions were found among the 2520 male murderers rendering a Chi Square result of 0.6929 or a P value of 0.40518 - which is definitely not statistically significant in
The 25,200 randomized dates have then been used to calculate the expected values for the Sun's aspects to the other celestial bodies used in astrology in the same way; the result for the regular planets (including the lunar node and the
mean lunar apogee also known as Lilith the Black Moon) is displayed in Figure 1.
