Grant Lewi

Born in Albany, NY, on June 8, 1902, Grant Lewi taught English at Dartmouth, the University of North Dakota, and the University of Delaware before he began studying astrology. In 1926, astrologer Athene Gayle Wallace began teaching Lewi astrology after he married her daughter Carolyn Wallace. First and foremost he wanted to be a writer, but in 1934 economic pressures pushed him into becoming a professional astrologer. He used the pseudonym Oscar for Astrology for the Millions, which gave a brief outline of his life. In the late 30s and 40s, Lewi edited Horoscope Magazine, which he resigned from in 1950 to start his own magazine, The Astrologer. He made unprecedented advancements in astrology; he devised a unique approach that equated house and sign indications. He also employed psychological considerations during a time when astrology was primarily event-oriented and used transits for predictive purposes only. Lewi�s approach was developed in his magazine articles and books, Astrology for the Millions and Heaven Knows What. Shortly after starting his own magazine, Lewi moved to Arizona, where he passed away on July 15, 1951—which happened to be the date he predicted he would die.
