Sydney Omarr has published his syndicated column of astrological horoscopes in the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune as well as in hundreds of newspapers worldwide. He was one of the most prolific American astrologers and proponents of astrology of the 20th century.
The Tribune Media Company, one of the largest newspaper publishers in the United States, owns Omarr's column. Tribune Media publishes the Chicago Tribune, L.A. Times, Orlando Sentinel, Sun-Sentinel and Baltimore Sun. All of these newspapers continue to carry Omarr's column as of 2015, more than a decade after his death. In addition, his column appears in more than 200 newspapers, both in the United States and abroad.
Omarr began his career by self-publishing his debut numerology book in the early 1940s and soon after began contributing articles to astrology magazines. It was not until after a short career in journalism following the end of World War II that he began dedicating himself solely to astrological forecasting.
Omarr died in 2003 after succumbing to the ravages of multiple sclerosis which, in his final years, left him blind and paralyzed below the neck; however, his legacy has persisted. Jeraldine Saunders, his hand-picked successor, continues to write Omarr's column, "Omarr's Astrological Forecast," for Tribune Media.
