Gahl Sasson, a professor of astrology, Kabbalah, mythology and comparative religion, and author of the book Cosmic Navigator – Design Your Destiny with Astrology and Kabbalah (Weiser, 2008), notices a significant increase in client ever since the recession.
Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker, Uma Thurman, Patricia Arquette, John Cusack among with many politicians, entrepreneurs and other celebrities consults with Sasson. Sasson’s book, A Wish Can Change Your Life, selected by Madonna for her 2007 book club, is endorsed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
“More people are coming in; my Web site is getting more traffic, more people contacting me from all over the country actually,” Sasson said.

“Spiritual teaching and readings help us see, or at least know what to do with situations that lie beneath the surface,” said Sasson. “They can be our guide when the rest of the world doesn’t seem all that predictable.”
