Politicians consulting astrology before acting

There are numerous accounts about politicians of the new age from around the world who used to consult astrologists before deciding on critical issues such as starting a war. Many of them were remotely the types you would expect to have this spiritual core.

A known example is president Ronald Reagan (actually it was the first lady Nancy Reagan who did the consulting with the astrologist).

Another known example is some leading figures in the Nazi regime such as Himmler who believed and consulted very frequently with astrologist in spite of the fact that astrology was outlawed in the Third Reich (though according to historical research, Hitler himself was not interested at all in astrology as opposed to past rumors).

I am doing a research work on that subject (politicians of the new age from around the world who used to consult astrologists). If you are familiar with other cases, please share here.

Asian Politicians

i am not sure whether you would include Asian politicians as par of new age politicians and if you do most Asian politicians do not do anything without consulting an astrologer by whatever name he may be called.

Indian politicians especially would find themselves disabled and handicapped if their religious guru or astrologer were not at hand to decide for him.

I am not sure how many would be honest enough to admit this. All Indians know that Indira Gandhi had her coterie of 'spiritual' advisers. I know that at least two other Indian Prime Ministers had their personal astrologers. From what i hear, all do.

I do know many seemingly rational leaders in the region, in countries that are Chinese, Islamic and of other beliefs who do not normally are expected to believe in astrology, have had their personal astrologers who i have met and if this were to be made known, one's personal safety may be in danger!

wow, this is so interesting!

Of course i include them. by "new age" i meant "our times", not the western spirituality.

It is interesting to know who are the gurus frequented by politicians. When I was in Putaparthy, I heard that there are politicians and even prime ministers who have come toSai Baba to consult with him. I also heard similar accounts about Ammachi (I have been in her ashram a few days after the new bridge was inagurated and I heard that the president of india came for the inaguration ceremony).

I will love to hear more about this.

Yes it's true politicians of any country believe more in astrology and palmistry but now more and more people are learning this. my example is in front of every one in the past i didn't believe in such kinds of things but now after experiencing healing i not only get benefit but also start learning it.
