American astrologer who greatly advanced the astrology of his day with his publication of books that include Lewi's "Astrology for the Millions," and "Planetary Hour Book."
In 1898, he moved to Chicago, IL with his family from their native Wales. After studying astrology with William Henry Chaney in Portland, OR, he founded the Llewellyn Publishing Company and the Portland School of Astrology. In 1906, he launched the "Moon Sign Book" which still appears annually. George attempted to dissociate astrology from all forms of occultism and to explain it solely in terms of modern science. He enjoyed only mixed success, yet contributed much to the increasing interest in and respect for astrology among the general public. His book, "A to Z Horoscope Maker and Delineator," 1910, was to America what Alan Leo's books were to Britain in putting astrology in the hands of the public." His "New Age Almanac" is a fount of information on the historical development of astrology and metaphysics, and naturopathy. It was published in 1991 by Visible Ink Press, Detroit, Michigan and is out of print as of 1999.
George was troubled with health problems, aphasia, in his later years. He died 7/11/1954, Los Angeles, CA.
