Facts of the Day: Planets and Presidents

In 1988 it was revealed that not only did Nancy Reagan take astrology very seriously, but she let astrological decisions alter presidential matters. Nancy was advised by Joan Quigley, an astrologer from San Francisco from 1981-1988. It even annoyed some in the Reagan Administration as former Chief of Staff Donald Regan said "Virtually every major move and decision the Reagans made during my time as White House Chief of Staff was cleared in advance with a woman in San Francisco who drew up horoscopes to make certain that the planets were in a favorable alignment for the enterprise.".

I'm sure Nancy wasn't the first First Lady with crazy tendencies. Mary Todd Lincoln comes to mind.

How did they get around government confidentiality to confer with the astrologer? Did the CIA vet her?
