Jeanne Dixon

Jeanne Dixon predicts peace in the year 2000.

Jeanne Dixon - Astrologer, psychic, seer; was born Lydia Emma Pinckert on January 5, 1904 in Medford, Wisconsin. Best known as a self-proclaimed psychic and astrologer due to her syndicated newspaper astrology column, some well-publicized predictions, and a best-selling biography.

Dixon reportedly predicted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In the May 13, 1956, issue of Parade Magazine she wrote that the 1960 presidential election would be "dominated by labor and won by a Democrat" who would then go on to"(b)e assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term."

So great did Dixon's fame become after Mr. Kennedy was assassinated, in 1963, that she became known as "the Seeress of Washington," and two books about her were best sellers in the 1960's: "A Gift of Prophecy" (1965) by Ruth Montgomery (which sold more than 3 million copies) and "My Life and Prophecies" (1969) by Mrs. Dixon as told to Rene Noorbergen (another millions seller).

Dixon was also the author of a horoscope book for dogs, and an astrological cookbook.

It is reported that President Richard Nixon followed Dixon's predictions through his secretary Rose Mary Woods, and met with her in the Oval Office in 1971. Dixon was one of several astrologers who gave advice to Nancy Reagan.
