Jeane L. Dixon (January 5, 1904 – January 25, 1997) was one of the best-known American astrologers and psychics of the 20th century, due to her syndicated newspaper astrology column, some well-publicized predictions and a best-selling biography.
Born as Lydia Emma Pinckert in Medford, Wisconsin, but raised in Missouri and California, Dixon was very reluctant to release personal details. She was married to James Dixon from 1939 until his death, but they apparently had no children. She worked with him in his successful real estate business.
She is best known for allegedly predicting the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In the May 13, 1956, issue of Parade Magazine she wrote that the 1960 presidential election would be "dominated by labor and won by a Democrat" who would then go on to "e assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term." She later admitted, “During the 1960 election, I saw Richard Nixon as the winner.”
