British author, poet, journalist, proprietor and astrologer, called the "Billy Graham of Witchcraft." Sybil Leek was one of the Pagan community's most esteemed elders. She believed in witchcraft from childhood, influenced by a grandmother who counseled clients that included the famed of her day. Raised in England, Leek’s travels took her around the world, from nursing wounded soldiers in the Hebrides to establishing the world's first astrological management consulting service.

While President of several companies and running an antique shop, she wrote an autobiography "Diary of a Witch." Leek was the subject of a BBC documentary on "The Several Lives of Sybil Leek." Her books also include "Reincarnation: The Second Chance," "Phrenology" and "Numerology, The Magic of Numbers."

Source Notes

Dikki Jo Mullen sends a copy of her funeral card which gives the data. For years, she gave the date publicly of February 22, 1922. The time comes from Marc Penfield who quotes a "personal source" for "just before midnight." Mullen wrote that the time was probably accurate within minutes from what Leek said about Uranus crossing her Ascendent.
