It tells of a camping trip taken by Sherlock Holmes and his
faithful sidekick, Dr. Watson. The two had spent a rigorous
day of fresh air and activity before laying down for a

"Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies
and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe
that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is

that God is all powerful and that we are small and
insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a
beautiful day. Why, what does it tell you?"
