CNBC interviewed former NFL running back Ricky Williams about his investing strategies, and I already know what you’re thinking: This dude smokes a lot of pot, so he’s probably going to say something crazy.


Well, guess what? You are 100% correct.


Williams says he’s investing $50,000 into Bitcoin because … Uranus.


Via CNBC.com:


“When I look at things, I tend to look at astrology to get insight,” says Williams, who tells CNBC Make It that his readings of astrological charts have pointed him in the direction of Bitcoin.


“The insight that got me interested in Bitcoin was the planet Uranus is about to enter into Taurus,” says Williams.


Uranus, he explains, “is about revolution; it’s about a change in the way we do things; it’s about innovation.” And Taurus “is about resources and finances,” says Williams.


The revolutionary aspect of Uranus in astrology, combined with Taurus’ focus on wealth and finance, is leading Williams to predict that, in the near future, “we’re going to totally change the way we view and understand” finances, he says.


Honestly, I don’t know enough about planets to dispute anything Williams is saying, but my gut is telling me this isn’t sound advice. My gut has been wrong in the past, though, and it sounds like Uranus has never steered Williams wrong.


Of course, Bitcoin, or any cryptocurrency, is volatile, but Williams says you shouldn’t be alarmed because Uranus is volatile, as well.


“Especially with the planet Uranus and change, [it’s] always going to be volatile in the beginning,” he says. “But, still, it’s more of a conscious choice to contribute to the change. If I do well, then great. If not, I’ll still feel like I did my part to contribute to things moving forward.”


If we’ve learned anything from this interview with Williams, it’s this: Always trust Uranus.
