Benjamin Franklin Was A What?

April 21, 2015

I’m sure you all know that as well as being one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin was an author, scientist, inventor, and diplomat. What you perhaps don’t know is that he was a highly skilled astrologer!


Franklin could predict weather patterns and even wrote ‘Poor Richard’s Almanac’ under the pen name Richard Saunders. Here is a quote from his book:


“Suffer me to observe that whoever studies the eclipses of former Ages and compares them with the great events that happened (as every true astrologer ought to do) shall find that the fall of the Assyrian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman monarchies, each of them, was remarkably preceded by great and total eclipses of the heavenly bodies. Observations of this kind, joined with the ancient and long-tryed rules of our art… make me tremble for the Empire now in being.”


By the time the Declaration of Independence was signed, Franklin was an extremely adept astrologer. So do you think that the birth of the United States occurred at a random time or that it was meticulously planned to the minute? The answer? Meticulously timed to the minute… This is why second house of finances in the US chart insured prosperity. But will it continue? The answer will be included in my new book.


Remember that the natal chart is a delineation of an entity’s soul (the unconscious) whether it is an individual entity or a collective entity. Just as the energy shifts in a person’s life can be calculated, the likely events and shifting fortunes of a nation can be determined.

I have created a great online Metaphysics program containing audio classes, videos, learning materials, and quizzes. It is a lot of fun and extremely in depth. Students in month 3 are already interpreting complex charts and becoming acquainted with the

tarot. If you are interested in studying metaphysics, click here for more information.


My new online program “How To Create A THRIVING Spiritual Business” is also now available. Click here for more information.


Let’s face it: in this day and age, everyone should be mastering metaphysics! It was good enough for Benjamin Franklin!
