SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Joan Quigley, the astrologer who helped determine President Ronald Reagan's schedule and claimed to have convinced him to soften his stance toward the Soviet Union, has died at the age of 87.
Air Jordan 7 Retro sale Quigley died Oct. 21 at her San Francisco home after an unspecified illness, the San Francisco Chronicle, quoting Quigley's sister, Ruth, said Friday.
Air Jordan 14 Retro Nancy Reagan began consulting Quigley after the 1981 assassination attempt on her husband. She wanted to keep him from getting shot again, Nancy Reagan wrote in her 1989 memoir, "My Turn."
Entertainer Merv Griffin had told her that Quigley had predicted that the day the president was shot was going to be a dangerous one for him.
Air Jordan 8 Retro sale Quigley would go on to advise Nancy Reagan on dates for presidential trips and news conferences.
The president became aware of the consultations and warned his wife to be careful because it might look odd if it came out, Nancy Reagan wrote in her book.
"If it makes you feel better, go ahead and do it," she quoted the president as saying.
The consultations were revealed to great embarrassment for the White House in a 1988 book by former White House chief of staff Donald Regan, who blamed the first lady for his ouster a year earlier. Regan said almost every major move and decision the Reagans made during his time as chief of staff was cleared in advance with a woman in San Francisco who drew up horoscopes. He did not know her identity.

"I am really not one of these clowns, and I really don't like this circus atmosphere," she said.
A call Friday to Joanne Drake, a representative of The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, for comment on Quigley's death was not immediately returned. The foundation was created by President Reagan and manages his library and museum in Simi Valley, California.
