It may be a long time before the world sees another person as talented and spiritually connected to the world as John Lennon. The musician and peace activist was the soul of The Beatles, and dedicated much of his life of trying to find the answers to life's most troubling questions.
As an artist, he never shied away from the mystical, in his work or in his personal life. While many of his fans only saw the references to drug culture, Lennon was actually searching for connections to the unknown world.
Because of this, he sought out people who could help him see the reasons for supposedly "unexplainable" phenomena. Many of his friends shared his point of view, but none were as privy to his beliefs as his personal astrologist, Alexis ('Magic Alex') Mardas.
When Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono visited Greece with Magic Alex in 1969, they asked the astrologer to make some predictions about their futures.
Their spiritual guide revealed how and where Lennon was to die, and if they had kept his words in mind, maybe the superstar would still be alive today.
There are many people who don't believe in the power of the zodiac, claiming that the predictions are vague at best. Yet those who follow the signs are able to see their relevance nearly every single day.
As for Lennon, he received a very specific warning that day. Magic Alex told the star that he would meet his end by a bullet, and that it would happen on an island.
Lennon and his wife were shocked by this revelation, and immediately backed out of a boat trip they had planned on taking around the Greek islands. Believing they had bested the universe, the couple soon forgot about the warning they had been gifted.
Eleven years later, Lennon was shot dead by deranged fan, Mark Chapman, while living on Manhattan Island, New York.
