Yeah, that's a really really old story.
I think it's just a coincidence. I mean, if this was really a conspiracy where this secret organization was killing all these presidents, why would
they do it? Besides the fac tthat they were all politicians, they don't have anything obvious in common. If the organization is killing presidents
just because they hate them or America, why kill just those one elected in a certain year? Alright, it is indeed a act of symbolism if they did, but
it really doesn't have any effect on the people that they governed.
Reagan had a attempt on his life, but he managed to survive, making him the only exception to the curse. Why didn't he die? Remember, he was a Cold
War combatant, so there was plenty of excuses for him to be killed by his enemies.
The key to all this presidential demising possibly lies more within the realm of the stars than the rumored words of a dead Indian chief. Or at least
so the astrologers would have us believe. According to Mark Dodich, an astrologer who has attempted to analyze the Curse of Tecumseh, the reason
behind this force is one of "cosmic coincidence," not native American hexing. Dodich claims the curse's effects overlap with the alignment of
Jupiter and Saturn, whose orbits have lined up every twenty years.
The 20-year pattern's one failure -- Reagan -- is explained by the sign the alignment of these two planets occurred under. Alignments under the earth
signs (Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo) have led to dead Presidents, but Reagan's term occurred under an air sign, accounting for his survival.
