Jacqueline Bigar is a well-known astrologer who has predicted every presidential election correctly since she began as a professional astrologer, including the infamous Election Day 2000 as well as the Presidential Election 2012. On Fox's local Philadelphia affiliate, in 2000, Jacqueline said two days before the election that the loser would be the winner and the winner would be the loser. She also predicted that a state, a warm one, would fall out of the count around 9 p.m., and that the nation would not have the election results for a substantial amount of time.
When asked directly who would be the next president, Jacqueline's response was "Bush." Fox and Jacqueline both thought she had lost her mind. Fox kindly, until 9:30 p.m. election night, ran the part that Bush would be President. After 9:30 p.m. they ran the full videotape of the conversation.
In 1978 Jacqueline predicted the end to the day of a major newspaper strike. The date was over a month away. As a result, she started writing for the Philadelphia Daily News an astrology column. When she predicted again another newspaper strike's ending once more to the day, her TV career was launched. Jacqueline became the first astrologer to appear every day on the morning news on a major network (KYW TV). She woke up Philadelphia letting them know what kind of day they would have. "Hi Aries, expect a 4 star day....."
Jacqueline was syndicated by King Features Syndicate in 1991. In the mid-90s she headed up the Astrology and New Age area in Prodigy, meanwhile predicting every Presidential election. Jacqueline often developed her own systems for prediction from the base of astrology. With relationships, she found very happy couples and did comparison charts and saw repeats of certain planetary ties. She uses that system for many of her clients and probably will be releasing a modest book on the topic in the near future.
Nationally syndicated astrologer Jacqueline Bigar's forecasts have been read, seen, and heard by millions of people via the Internet, television, radio, telephone, and national newspaper columns from King Features Syndicate.

Jacqueline's television career began in 1985 with KYW's morning news, Philadelphia's local NBC affiliate at that time. Her daily morning spots ran on KYW for 11 years. As a result of her TV spots, Jacqueline's was recognized by Columbia Journalism Review as the first astrologer to work continuously on a television network.

Avon Books published her first astrology book, "Women and Their Moon Signs," in 1998, which provides women with a tour of their moonscape and reveals to them the Moon's clues to their nature, personality and, most importantly, the prospect for long-term, loving relationships. Jacqueline is currently working on a second astrology book.
Jacqueline was recently awarded her first blogger award by Twilight. "The International Reach Out Award" from Bloggers Building Bridges is detailed in a blog called An Aerial Armadillo. As Wisewebwoman puts it, in a nutshell: the award is for "bloggers who reach out across boundaries with their sparkling honesty and truth."
