Astrologers have brooded enough about their mis-calls of the 2016 election. Let’s remember some highlights – 11/7/00 and Bush v. Gore. The country didn’t know who the winner was, but most astrologers did, and funnily enough, it had been a fairly easy call. A stationary Mercury square Neptune, among other considerations, informed many.
Here are a few of the many correct astrological forecasts from 2000 – at times scarily accurate. (Some of these astrologers have unfortunately passed in recent years.)
Arch Crawford, New York, NY, financial newsletter 10/2/00: “This day will not go as expected. Something really strange and unusual will make this day remarkable.”
Jacob Schwartz, Glenside, PA, New Visions magazine 10/00: “Will the next President receive a majority of the popular vote of the voting citizens of the U.S.? No. The election will be so close that both major party candidates will be able to claim a victory of sorts!”
Kim Rogers-Gallagher, Bradenton, FL, American Astrology “Tomorrow’s News” November issue: “Tuesday evening looks a bit confusing… something’s been overlooked, stalled or delayed. It’s going to be tough to tell the results until very late that evening.”
Jim Shawvan, San Diego, StarIQ.com 11/6/00: “uncertainty may develop as the count goes on. The election may be so close in some states that it may be several days before the actual Electoral College votes can be tallied with accuracy.”
Maxine Fiel, New York, Liz Smith column, Newsday: “What seems like a runaway winter could end up the loser. The winner might not be decided after the polls close.”
