The Astrology of Cult Leaders

What makes cult leaders so appealing to their followers? And what do we mean by ‘cult’, anyway?

This presentation looks at why seemingly rational people get involved in cults led by charismatic and often dangerous individuals. People who willingly obeying their leader’s command, no matter what. Even unto death.

Do cult leaders have certain astrological characteristics that account for their uncanny ability to bend others to their will?

In this presentation, Charles summarises his research surrounding ten infamous cult leaders. He looks at their astrological similarities and differences, dipping into example charts to illustrate key points.
