Evangeline Adams




Evangeline Smith Adams was a prominent American astrologer who gained widespread recognition for her astrological practice and predictions. Born on February 8, 1868 in Jersey City, New Jersey, she moved to Boston in her youth. Evangeline Adams is often credited with helping to popularize astrology in the United States during the early 20th century.

Adams began her professional career as an astrologer in Boston in the 1890s before relocating to New York City in 1899, where she quickly established herself as a leading figure in the field. Her clientele included influential and prominent figures from various sectors, such as finance, politics, and entertainment. Adams's reputation was significantly bolstered by a highly publicized court case in 1914, in which she was accused of fortune-telling, which was illegal at the time. During the trial, Adams successfully demonstrated her skills by providing an accurate astrological reading of the judge's son. This led to her acquittal and a ruling that her practice of astrology was a science rather than mere fortune-telling.

Her practice thrived following the court case, and she became one of the most famous astrologers of her time. Adams authored several books on astrology, which contributed to her fame and the broader acceptance of astrology. Some of her notable works include "Astrology: Your Place in the Sun" (1927) and "Astrology for Everyone" (1931). These books provided insights into astrological practices and were intended to make astrology more accessible to the general public.

Adams claimed to have made numerous accurate predictions, including the stock market crash of 1929. She also worked as an advisor to various business magnates and celebrities, further cementing her status as a key figure in American astrology. Her ability to blend astrological practice with a modern, scientific approach appealed to many during an era when people were increasingly looking for ways to understand and predict personal and economic uncertainties.

Evangeline Adams's legacy is marked by her role in legitimizing and popularizing astrology in the United States. She paved the way for future astrologers and helped astrology gain a foothold in American popular culture. Despite her passing in 1932, her influence on the field of astrology remains significant.
