Madame Fraya, 1871-1954 (French chiromancer)

* Madame Fraya (born Valentine Dencausse) was probably the most famous chiromancer in Paris during the first half of the 20th century.

Her clients included important French artists and politicians of the time, such as the Princess of Saxe-Meningen (sister of emperor Wilhelm II of Germany), to whom she reportedly predicted World War I and the defeat of Germany. She was subsequently called into the French Ministry of War, where she assured the government that the marching German troops would not reach Paris (they were in fact stopped at the First Battle of the Marne).

The abilities displayed by Valentine Dencausse were studied by prominent scientists such as Alfred Binet, Eugene Osty, and Albert von Schrenck-Notzing.

She died on 16 February 1954 at 12:30pm in Paris.

Lois Lowry (American writer)

* Lois Lowry has written more than thirty children's books and an autobiography. For her contribution as a children's writer, she was a finalist in 2000 (and U.S. nominee again in 2004) for the biennial, international Hans Christian Andersen Award, the highest recognition available to creators of children's books.

Lowry is known for writing about difficult subject matters within her works for children. She has explored such complex issues as racism, terminal illness, murder, and the Holocaust among other challenging topics.

In her chart she has Mars and Pluto in a Grand Trine with her triple conjunction of Mercury-Saturn-Sun. This combination indicates success (Saturn-Sun) through writing (Mercury) about challenging (Mars) and complex (Pluto) subjects.
