Hazelrigg, John (1860-1941)

American astrologer, born on June 20, 1860. He was the younger of twins, his brother being one hour older. Hazelrigg moved to New York as an actor but later abandoned the stage to become an astrologer. His first book, Metaphysical Astrology, was published in 1900, and in 1901 he launched a magazine, Astro-Herald. In 1916 he led in the formation of the American Academy of Astrologians, an elite group of astrologers who met periodically to discuss the more esoteric aspects of astrology. Hazelrigg edited the proceedings.

Hazelrigg wrote several additional books over the years. He also worked with George J. McCormack in astrometeorological research for 15 years (1917-32).
