I don’t put much stock in Astrology or even the more technological sounding, and therefore superior, computer astrology. But if I had actually spotted this added for the ASTROM computer astrology software back in the 1980s, it would have made me pause.

Yes, this ad was run around Christmas time and so that could be the only reason I could see for Santa’s inclusion. Unless of course, the Jolly Ol’ Elf has astrological abilities that weren’t covered in the Rankin Bass Christmas specials…
