    “And what do you conclude from that, Watson?”
    Watson thinks for a moment. “Well,” he says, “astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.

Theologically, I see that God is all-powerful, and we are small and insignificant. Uh, what does it tell you, Holmes?”

    Night, sleep, and the stars.”
