As the Governor of California, Ronald Reagan signed a legislation legalizing the practice of astrology in the state. When he became the president in 1981, the astrologer Joan Quigley advised him (through his wife Nancy) on the timing of presidential travel and on his personal health. Furthermore, on Joan's advice, the successful US-Soviet treaty eliminating intermediate-range nuclear missiles was signed at precisely 1:30 pm on 8 December, 1987. Reagan himself wrote to the Los Angeles Times' astrologer Sydney Omarr, saying: "By promoting a greater understanding and appreciation of astrology you further the cause of science and inspire all stargazers to new levels of insight, discovery, and exploration."
