NFTs at The Ratio
Be a Part of Thousands of Years of Human History
Astrology is not just a fortune cookie, it is the origin of all of humanity’s dance with pure logic.
For 600 years the Sumerians recorded the position of the planets, the constellations and the price of wheat : These data tablets became the Western Zodiac.
It is time to use the latest math & tech to study astrology once again.
You can be a part of this epic endeavor.
All revenue from Past Life AstroTwin NFTs will fund data science on astrology. We do not sell your data. We sell analytics as an astrological product. And we sell hand-curated art which is meaningful to you.
As we spread awareness of our mission globally, your NFT will grow in value.
Past Life Investment Value
Past Life AstroTwins are a collection of hand-curated NFTs.
12 sun signs x 12 moon signs x 12 rising signs = 1,728 NFT’s.
There is only 1 Past Life AstroTwin for each Sun, Moon, Rising combination. All humans with a known birth date, time & place match to exactly 1 Past Life AstroTwin (their Sun, Moon, Rising combination).
Past Life AstroTwins have at least three levels of scarcity and re-market value, for example :
- Individual Collector : The astrology enthusiast who desires their personal sun, moon, rising combination Past Life AstroTwin NFT.
- Individual Investor : The art investor who believes a Marilyn Monroe Past Life AstroTwin NFT will have more value than a Mao TseDong Past Life AstroTwin NFT.
- Collector Investor : The investor who purchases in bulk – at random or by metadata. We suspect someone will buy all the Royalty, and someone else all the Serial Killers. (Just a hunch.)

How were Past Life AstroTwins curated?
- By hand. It took a very long time. Across AstroTwin curation, short bio writing, image curation, legal, and website development …about a year.
- We reverse-engineered AstroTwins from a database located in France : www.astrotheme.com.
- We chose PastLife AstroTwins on a few criteria : 1) Fame or Relevance. 2) Diversity of profession and person. 3) Image availability within Public Domain or Creative Commons.
- We QA’ed each twin from a different online source to support accuracy of birth date; We have an approximately 95% match rate for those born after 1850. Some rising signs (based on precise time and location of birth) are not 100% possible to verify.
- Some claims, like what time Jesus was born are more artistic than precise, although there do exist serious ways – even without birth time – to reverse-engineer an astrology natal chart based on significant life events.
Is there a future roadmap for The Ratio?
- We will do data science on astrology.
- Parallel path, we will design a next round of products including a website and app for people to access statistically significant astrology.
- We anticipate roughly 30% of astrology assumptions will be found statistically significant, 30% of astrology assumptions will be found false (and removed), and for 30% of astrology assumptions the data will tell us something new which requires re-interpretation.
- We plan in future years to analyze with data science not just Western Astrology, but also Vedic and Chinese astrology. Is it be possible to merge these systems? Let’s find out!
- We plan in future years to expand astrological knowledge by analyzing contemporary datasets like genomic and health data.
What if I don’t identify with my AstroTwin?
- AstroTwins represent 3 matching aspects of a natal chart : the sun, moon and rising aspects. However, each chart also contains the placements of 7 other planets, myriad other asteroids and dozens of potential aspects these planets make to one another.
- In other words, an AstroTwin is a similarity, not a complete likeness.
