Chris Brennan asked on the Astro-Facts blog:
“”In America, founding fathers George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin all had personal astrologers. ”
I’m not sure that this is actually true… Has anyone else read this in a reliable source?
This quote showed up on one of the astrology mailing lists over the weekend:
“Astrology is one of the most ancient sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the wise and great. Formerly no prince would make war or peace, nor any general fight a battle, in short no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an astrologer.”
Benjamin Franklin, 1751
