The turn of the 21st century was a time of astrological awakening for many Americans based on statistics. A 1999 survey by the National Science Foundation found that 12% of Americans read their horoscopes everyday. Another 32% said they read horoscopes occasionally. The American Federation of Astrologers estimated in 2015 that 23% of Americans read their horoscopes daily, almost double the 1999 proportion. It also seems adversity forces people to look at the cosmos for guidance.
A 2009 survey by the Harris Poll found that 26% of Americans believed in astrology. Compare that to a 1993 study published in the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society. It concluded that 55% of university arts students couldn’t distinguish astronomy versus astrology (note: Canadian students were the subjects). Meanwhile, 55% of Americans rejected astrology as pseudoscience in 2012, compared to 62% in 2010, according to the National Science Foundation. When all these numbers are view in totality, more people are accepting and open to astrology than ever before.
There’s a growing number of men that make important decisions in their lives based on astrology, particularly horoscopes. Aries, for instance, are said to make decisions based on personal values and gut feelings. Tauruses are more practical and often make the safest choice. Geminis are indecisive people. They make decisions based on social harmony – meaning make choices that make others feel good. But astrology goes far beyond just horoscopes.
Larry Schwimmer is an astrologer and advisor to Fortune 500 C-Level executives. He touts himself as a “new voice” that combines business savvy with the metaphysical world to help important people live more complete, fulfilling lives. He wrote frequently about planetary alignments from 2012-2015 that kept pointing to radical revolution, similar to cultural events of the 1960s. Occupy Wallstreet and the Tea Party were both prominent during Schwimmer’s time of writing. He also explained how the planets influence the economy, Presidential Elections, global events and personal lives.
Many great men had someone like Schwimmer in their lives to interpret the cosmos and apply those conclusions to their lives.
Two months into his Presidency, Ronald Reagan got the scare of his life. It was March 30, 1981. John Hinckley, Jr. was a 25-year-old college dropout who was obsessed with actress Jodi Foster. He thought the best way to get Foster’s attention was assassinating the President. Hinckley shot President Reagan in front of the Washington Hilton Hotel that day. He also shot Press Secretary James Brady, Secret Service Agent Tim McCarthy and a police officer. President Reagan was treated and released from the hospital less than two weeks later. But the event changed his Presidency forever.
First Lady Nancy Reagan first met astrologer Joan Quigley several years earlier during a taping of the Merv Griffin Show. Mrs. Reagan contacted Quigley after the assassination attempt on her husband. Quigley told the First Lady that she could have foreseen the incident had she been clued into the Reagan’s lives and everyday affairs. She was brought in as official White House astrologer in 1981. Former Chief of Staff Donald Regan wrote in his 1988 memoir that “virtually every major decision” by President Reagan was first cleared by Quigley based on her planetary observations.
Quigley brought new attention to astrology as major media covered her for years after her stint in the White House.
Raymond Merriman and J.P. Morgan
Millionaires don’t need astrologers, but billionaires do. Those are the famous words of banker J.P. Morgan. He held the position that humanity has no control over economic happenings. It is all controlled by the cosmos. He surrounded himself with astrologers to help him make major decisions on investments and business.
Raymond Merriman takes a similar approach. Merriman, president of Merriman Market Analyst (MMA), told Forbes in 2012 that his clients covet his analysis that is largely based on planetary cycles and “geocosmic market turning points.” He said that despite all of his clients being market geniuses; they all understand that the cosmos give them an edge over the competition.
