The Wise Men of the World quoting Astrology
  • Albert Einstein: “Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It taught me many things and I am greatly indebted to it.”
  • Isaac Newton: (said in defence of astrology, to sceptic Edmund Halley)“I have studied the matter. You sir, have not”.
  • Benjamin Franklin: “Oh the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there…if you had but skill to read.”
  • President Theodore Roosevelt: he kept his horoscope mounted on a chess board in the oval office. When asked about it he would reply... “I always keep my weather eye on the opposition of my seventh house Moon to my first house Mars.”
  • JP Morgan, America’s first billionaire: “Millionaires don’t use astrology, Billionaires do.”
  • Plato: “Perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.”
  • Donald Reagan, formerly Ronald Reagan’s Chief of Staff said: “It’s common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.”
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson said : “Astrology is astronomy brought down to earth and applied toward the affairs of man.”
  • Sir Francis Bacon, the father of modern science: “The natures and dispositions of men are, not without truth, distinguished from the predominance of the planets.”
  • Shakespeare: he said in the person of King Lear... "The stars above govern our condition." He follows that with "I was born sir, when the crab was ascending, all my affairs go backwards."
  • Von Goethe: wrote an astrological description of his birth...”These auspicious aspects, which the astrologers subsequently interpreted for me, may have been the causes of my preservation.”
  • Dr. Carl Jung: “Astrology is assured recognition from psychology without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the knowledge of antiquity. The fact that it is possible to construct, in adequate fashion, a person’s character from the data of his nativity, shows the validity of astrology.”
