A renowned astrologer, drawing from the ancient tradition of "guardian spirits," presents a fascinating guide that shows readers how to embrace their spirituality and realize their potential by harnessing the power of their sun sign, which embodies a personalized form of spirit communication.
After his discharge from the Army, Omarr attended journalism courses at Mexico City College.
At the age of 15, Sydney Omarr wrote his first book, ''Sydney Omarr's Private Course on Numerology.'' He sold mimeographed copies for $2.
He became a contributor to astrology magazines, which gave him small advertisements as compensation. The advertisements encouraged readers to send him their birth dates, a small fee, and a personal problem to solve.
Sydney enlisted in the Army at 17 and managed to specialize in astrology. He was a host of a popular radio talk program in Okinawa that was heard throughout the Pacific. He predicted the outcomes of sporting events.
After his discharge, Omarr went on to become a reporter for United Press International and a radio news director and editor for CBS in Hollywood.
He became friends with movie actresses like Kim Novak, Mae West, and Rita Hayworth and began to write his column. His parties were legendary; he was Merv Griffin's resident television astrologer, and he methodically cranked out 13 books a year, one for each sign of the zodiac and one for all 12 signs.
By the 1960s Omarr was a full-time astrologer and syndicated columnist whose astrology columns appeared in several hundred newspapers, including the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times. His columns attracted loyal readers from all walks of life and all levels of society, at least partly because, no matter how grim the forecast, Omarr always found an upbeat way to present it.
He also wrote single-topic books linking astrology to romance, cooking, and winning lottery numbers. His books have sold more than 50 million copies. 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 was an astrology columnist for Los Angeles Times Syndicate. When Omarr was eventually blinded and paralyzed by multiple sclerosis, he dictated his column to assistants, who continued to write it in his name.

Sydney was a Judaist.
About 90 percent of American newspapers carry horoscopes, but ever since Newton, modern science has not been kind to the idea of forecasting the future on the basis of planetary movements. Omarr nonetheless defended astrology in public debates with scientists like Linus Pauling and Carl Sagan.
Sydney was a member of the American Federation Astrologers.
Sydney decided to change his name at 15 after seeing a movie called ''Shanghai Gesture,'' starring Victor Mature as a character named Omar. Relying on obscure numerological formulas, he changed the I in his first name to Y and added the second R to Omar.
A biography prepared by the Tribune Company, which owns his column, boasted that Time magazine once called Omarr ''astrology's most skillful public protagonist.'' Playboy termed him Mr. Astrology.
Physical Characteristics: In 1971, Omarr was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, started to decline slowly, first losing his sight in the early 1990s and then becoming completely paralyzed.
Jeraldine Saunders, a former fashion model, and television producer was Omarr's wife for eight months in 1966.
