I think the doctor who proposed this project is quite creative in preparing a therapy for his patients. However, I think it has more disadvantages rather than advantages. It could be a good way to make his patients talk by deliberately allowing their patients to have this joint delusion that the position of cosmic bodies influences our lives.

Do you believe in astrology? Can the position of planets and stars really affect the lifestyle of a human being? Can astrology really predict the future by looking at the alignment of constellations?
