How would you #$@% know?!

The Wall Street Journal’s Heard on the Street column today (“Blackstone’s Green Day”), writes:
“Blackstone’s IPO comes as the stars are aligned for the firm, as relatively low interest rates spark a deal frenzy, hedge funds remain popular and commercial real estate has been fairly strong in recent years.”
How do WSJ writers know the stars are aligned for Blackstone? Are they astrologers? The media loves to use the star language (astrology) in their lexicon, yet most refuse to acknowledge what a useful tool it is for understanding our world.
