Famous Astrologists and Predictions

By Davin Woods

Astrologists the world over are considered famous when they make a correct prediction. What the prediction is/was or how it came to be, however, is another issue all together. Generally, this is because, although astrology is generally considered a science, its predictions can be interpreted in ways that may not necessarily be considered scientific. In this sense, when people seek advice from astrology advisors they are seeking advice from exactly that, an advisor. Interestingly enough, however, there is a distinguished group of men that brought astrology into the main stream (as-it-were) that relied strictly on the scientific method to do so.

At the center
Astrologists rest there craft at the center of the solar system, and the sun. The practice of astrology has been around for quite some time but it only began to formulate in "modern" Western minds when some upstart observers proposed that the planets revolved around a fixed sun. Although the entire hypothesis was not fully fleshed out at the time, Copernicus got the modern practice of astrology rolling with his theory. One might spin this happening in one way or another but astrologists likely owe their modern livelihood to this free thinker. Following in Copernicus' footsteps were Galileo and Kepler who focused on more practical aspects such as observation and the math involved when astrology advisors make their predictions.

What is famous?
Saying somebody is a famous astrologist is a fairly difficult task. The label of "famous" really depends upon how much stock one places in any one particular activity or event. If an astrologist predicts a car accident does that make him famous? If an astrologist predicts the US Space Craft Challenger's accident does that make him famous? So, famous really depends on where in the world one is talking about and how much stock that population places on astrology and the outcome of the event that the prediction was made about.

Recognized Astrologists around the world
In deference to Copernicus, Rami Blekt from Israel has been making some personal predictions for individuals of late that appear to be working out. He generally works with people rather then events but does appear on television regularly to promote his many books. Samir Tomb, a Lebanese astrologist also has many books and television appearances to his credit. He is one of the Europe's most sought out astrology advisors and has been working in the practice since he was 15. One wonders, however, when we read a quote from him that says "One astrology consultation can change your destiny. "Michel Hayek is another well known astrologist from Lebanon with similar credentials and a very good publicist. He does have many predictions to his name, and many have come true, but interpretation may have played a little role when considering the US Challenger explosion and several assassinations and bombings (with veiled descriptions) in the Middle East. Longest studying in the field is Pandit Pravinji of India. Mr. Pravinji has been study and practicing for over 30 years in the Vedic form of the "sacred science" around the world. He might actually be considered as famous by people that he has read for.

Interpretation is your friend
Nostradamus is probably the most famous predictor and has the best record of predictions going over the years. His predictions, however, take great cover in the interpretations that he has given them. They are without question very intriguing but nonetheless covered well with many ways of interpreting them.
