  1. It’s an interesting idea — even though the intelligence chiefs thought astrology was silly, they did know that Hitler consulted an astrologer, so the question was whether astrology was a replicable enough enterprise so that they shadow astrologer would be reaching the same conclusions that Hitler’s astrologer did.

  2. Yeah. If you actually read the article it doesn’t sound nearly as ridiculous as the title and blurb make it seem. The silliness would be if Hitler actually made decisions on the basis of astrology. Having read Kershaw’s two-volume biography of him, I don’t recall this ever having come up. But it was a while ago that I read it. I suspect that it was a ploy by von Wohl to retain influence.
