“Courteous Reader, Astrology is one of the most ancient Sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the Wise and the Great. Formerly, no Prince would make War or Peace, nor any General fight in Battle, in short, no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an Astrologer.” – Benjamin Franklin

At the begin of the 17th century, great scientists as Tycho Brahe, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler and Pierre Gassendi – now best remembered for their roles in the development of modern physics and astronomy – all held astrology in high esteem.

John Pierpont Morgan, the founder of the bank J.P. Morgan, once said that “millionaires don’t need astrologers, but billionaires do”. The banker believed that, to be successful in the market, you need more than just good timing.

“A physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right to call himself a physician.” —Hippocrates

“We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.” – Carl Jung

Albert Einstein has been quoted saying, “Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am indebted to it. Geophysical evidence reveals the power of the stars and the planets in relation to the terrestrial. In turn Astrology reinforces this power to some extent. This is why astrology is a life-giving elixir to mankind.”

Others (read that as fact checkers) researched this and claim that Einstein never made this quote. According to them, Einstein’s only known comment on astrology is in a 1943 letter to one Eugene Simon: “I fully agree with you concerning the pseudo-science of astrology. The interesting point is that this kind of superstition is so tenacious that it could persist through so many centuries.”

As science evolved in the 20th century, the skepticism about astrology increased. Did it mirror the rise of the medical establishment under the Rockafellers? Many will say so. But fast forward to the 1980’s as we had a President of the United States who we know consulted astrologers regularly. The question remains, how many others did and do as well.
