Some people consider horoscopes to be insights from the universe while others consider them pure nonsense. Either way, they are still really fun to read.

One thing we DO know here at Future-ish is that researchers have found season of birth does actually impact us in many ways. So to have a little fun, the team from Studio F gathers over cocktails for each issue of Confab to make 'inferences', as we say in the science world, based on what we do know from research on seasonal biology for our readers who share our passion for science, design, and culture.

We suggest you read them over cocktails as well. Enjoy!
