Who was Jeane Dixon?

Who was Jeane Dixon? Why is she so well thought of in the astrological circles, yet, made fun of by skeptics and critics? Jeane Dixon was an immensely popular American psychic who remained in the public eye throughout several decades of the 20th century. Her syndicated astrology column, best-selling biography, and influence on other writers and psychics turned her into a household name. Let’s take a look at the life of Jeane Dixon before she became a professional astrologer and clairvoyant, as well as at some of her biggest clients and most publicized predictions after she became one of America’s best-known psychics.

The Early Life of Jeane Dixon

Jean Dixon was born into a Roman Catholic family on January 5, 1904 in Medford, Wisconsin. Dixon often stated that when she was very young she was given a crystal ball by a fortune-teller who told her that she would one day be a well-known psychic. By the age of 9 Dixon started receiving visions, and by the age of 14 she was making predictions about the lives of famous celebrities.

Despite these gifts, Dixon led a relatively normal early adult life and married James Dixon in 1939. The marriage was childless but the two stayed together their entire lives. Dixon worked with her husband and served as the president of his successful real estate business for many years before beginning her career as a psychic.

High-Profile and Celebrity Clients

Among Dixon’s high-profile clients was the actress Carole Lombard, who met a devastating end in a plane crash after not heeding Dixon’s warning not to travel by plane on her planned trip. Dixon also had her share of political ties, and was very close to Nancy Regan. Due to her relationship with the future First Lady, she was reportedly said to have met with Ronald Regan before he became president, predicting that he one day would attain the highest office in the United States. Dixon also met with Richard Nixon on at least one occasion in 1971, and possibly even the following year when she predicted a terrorist attack in the United States (which thankfully never happened).

Hits and Misses in Dixon’s Predictions

Aside from her success at predicting Lombard’s fatal crash and her mistaken prediction of a terrorist attack during Nixon’s presidency, Dixon had many more highly publicized hits and misses.

The most well-known of her “hits” was the successful prediction of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, which she made back in 1956 and which was published in Parade Magazine. She was quoted as saying that the 1960 election would be won by a democrat who would later either die or be assassinated while in office.

Dixon’s career as a psychic was already in full swing prior to this because of a few other highly publicized and accurate predictions. Back in 1945 she reportedly told then President Franklin D. Roosevelt that he did not have much time left to live, and, sure enough, he died a few months later. Another astounding prediction came in 1953, when, while appearing on NBC, Dixon stated that a silver ball would emerge from Russia and travel into space. The Russian satellite Sputnik launched four years later.

Not all of her predictions were as successful, however. During the 1960 election Dixon had changed her tone about the win going to a democrat and predicted instead that Kennedy would lose. She also predicted that there would be a World War III in 1958, that a cure for cancer would be found by 1967, and that world peace would be achieved by the year 2000.

Jeane Dixon’s Biographer Becomes a Believer

Dixon’s nationally best-selling biography, A Gift of Prophecy: The Phenomenal Jeane Dixon, was written by Ruth Montgomery, who herself was a syndicated columnist, respected journalist, and holder of two honorary doctor of law degrees. Before her biography of Dixon was published in 1965, Montgomery had already been publishing an annual column of Dixon’s predictions since 1952.

After retiring from her esteemed journalism career in 1969, Montgomery began to describe herself, much like Dixon and other psychics such as Edgar Cayce, as a Christian psychic Though there is little by way of direct quotes from Montgomery herself, there can be no doubt that her columns and her book about Dixon were important catalysts for her own exploration of psychic phenomena.

It was only after the publication of Dixon’s biography that Montgomery began a long career of writing more spiritually oriented books. Montgomery moved from being very skeptical of Jeane Dixon and psychic phenomina to exploring afterlife contact to becoming a believer and publishing numerous books of her own on the topic (such as Here and Hereafter, Strangers Among Us: Enlightened Beings from a World to Come, and many others).

Jeane Dixon’s Legacy

Dixon passed away on January 25, 1997 of a cardiac arrest. Her husband having departed before her, most of Dixon’s possessions went to an investor and banker named Leo M. Bernstein, who opened up a Jean Dixon Museum in 2002. Her legacy also lives on in her seven widely read books, and in the thousands of lives that she touched throughout her long and impressive career.
