Sydney Omarr

Sydney Omarr was an American astrologer, writer, journalist, and columnist who appeared in hundreds of daily newspapers and was among the most widely read astrologers in the world.

He began as a journalist with the United Press news service in the 1950s, and spent several years as a CBS radio correspondent before becoming a full-time columnist and astrological consultant. By the 1970s, Omarr was a headliner on American television talk shows hosted by Mike Douglas, Regis Philbin, Tom Snyder, Johnny Carson and Merv Griffin, and was known as "the astrologer to the stars."

He was the author of more than a dozen books including Sydney Omarr's Astrological Guide To Love & Romance, Sydney Omarr's Astrology, Love, Sex, and You, Cooking with Astrology co-authored with Chef Mike Roy (1969), and his autobiography, Answer in the Sky . . . Almost: Confessions of an Astrologer, published in 1995. His annual Sydney Omarr's Day-By-Day Astrological Guide, published for each sign of the zodiac, remained a perennial best-seller. Omarr's books sold more than 50 million copies.

Sydney Omarr was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1971, and was eventually blinded and paralyzed by the disease. Even as his condition worsened, he continued working on his popular columns, horoscopes and books.
