cover Foreseeing the Future

Evangeline Adams and Astrology in America

by Karen Christino

Once the world's most famous astrologer, Evangeline Adams single-handedly popularized astrology in the United States.  Foreseeing the Future not only chronicles Adams' life, but also illuminates the history of astrology and the occult in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

 Karen Christino’s one-of-a-kind biography tells the colorful, astounding tale of a woman who defied convention and made a lasting impression on American culture.  Adams wrote four best-sellers and had a top-rated national radio show in the early 1930's.  She battled legal authorities in New York City for the right to practice astrology, married a man over twenty years her junior, founded a tremendous business enterprise, and made stunning predictions.  J.P. Morgan, Tallulah Bankhead and Joseph Campbell were just a few of Evangeline's renowned clients.  This book will fascinate anyone interested in cultural history, women's studies, or astrology – skeptic and believer, expert and novice alike.

"Everyone in astrology will adore this book written grippingly and beautifully by Karen Christino.  The research is thorough without being heavy, and the words are picturesque and strong enough to inspire a motion picture… a movie that MUST be made of this book, about this incredible Adams life and career!  I spent nine and one-half hours without interruption reading this book; it is THAT compelling and rewarding.  One can not put it down, nor ever forget it!  Wow!"
     – Noel Tyl, astrologer and author

"Ms. Christino presents the existing evidence regarding the real Evangeline Adams.  She separates the myths from the facts of Evangeline’s life and provides us with a personal and in-depth portrait of the origins, deeds and accomplishments of this legendary figure of American astrology.  A must read for anyone interested in the history of astrology in the U.S."
       – Robert Zoller, astrologer and author

"An intriguing look at astrology and its acceptance in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries... definitely a significant contribution."
       – Joan McEvers for Madison Books
