Dixon, Jeane (1918–1997)
American sensitive and prophesier. Dixon’s rise to prominence
began when she predicted the assassination of President
John F. Kennedy in 1963. She also predicted the Communist
takeover of China, the partition of India, the deaths of Carole
Lombard, Dag Hammarskjöld, and Mahatma Ghandhi, and
the suicide of Marilyn Monroe.
Dixon was born January 5, 1918, to Frank and Emma Pickert
in Medford, Wisconsin; she moved with her family to California
at an early age. A gypsy told the eight-year-old Dixon
that she had a sensitivity to events around her and presented
her with a crystal ball, in which she saw visionary pictures.
Dixon’s family moved again and she attended high school in
Los Angeles, later training to become a singer and actress. At
age 21, she married James L. Dixon, who was then in partnership
with the film producer Hal Roach in an automobile agency.
During World War II, Dixon entertained servicemen with
her predictions through the Home Hospitality Committee,
which was organized by Washington socialites.
Being a devout Roman Catholic, Dixon believed that she
had a God-given gift that must be used for the good of humankind.
She was also the founder of the charity known as Children
to Children Inc.
Her astrological forecasts were syndicated by the Chicago
Tribune–New York News Syndicate, Inc. Her books include
Jeane Dixon, My Life and Prophecies Her Own Story as Told to Rene
Noorbergen (1969), Reincarnation and Prayers to Live By (1970),
Jeane Dixon’s Astrological Cookbook (1976), Horoscopes for Dogs
(1979), and The Riddle of Powderworks Road (1980). Newspaper
reporter Ruth Montgomery published Dixon’s biography, A
Gift of Prophecy, in 1965. It sold nearly three million copies in
hardback and became a number one best-seller in paperback.
Some critics belittled Dixon for her inaccuracy in predicting
events. Most prophesiers, however, have a certain failure rate,
often based on the faulty interpretation of symbols, visions, and
psychic reactions; Dixon freely admited to these errors. It is
said that extrasensory perception is too unpredictable for
prophecy to be an exact science.
Dixon died on January 26, 1997 in Washington D.C
