American astrologer, a popular professional and author whose books include, "Guide To Horoscope Interpretation." Prior to becoming a professional, he was a Hollywood script writer in his youth.

Greatly interested in metaphysics, he and the gifted clairvoyant Elsie Wheeler set about to find a set of symbols for every degree of the zodiac that was an improvement on degree symbology existent.

One day in 1925 in San Diego's Balboa Park, Jones took a series of 360 small blank cards on each of which was noted a sign and degree on the back and held them up for Wheeler to describe her vision. The cards were shuffled continually to keep the selection random.

The images did not seem entirely appropriate, or some were exaggerated, so the cards were put aside until 1931, when the definitions were revised, a process that was repeated in 1948. The results were first published in 1951.

In 1978, two years before his death, Jones was given a respectful and affectionate 90th birthday party by 200 colleagues while planning his next book.

Jones died on 5 March 1980 in Stanwood, Washington, aged 91.
