Ex-NFL star Ricky Williams studies astrology – and it’s telling him to invest in Bitcoin
Williams has spent a chunk of his post-football life studying everything from holistic medicine to astrology and he tells CNBC Make It that the studying the cosmos actually informed his decision to invest in the recent cryptocurrency boom.
“When I look at things, I tend to look at astrology to get insight,” says Williams, who tells CNBC Make It that his readings of astrological charts have pointed him in the direction of Bitcoin.
“The insight that got me interested in Bitcoin was the planet Uranus is about to enter into Taurus,” says Williams.
Uranus, he explains, “is about revolution; it’s about a change in the way we do things; it’s about innovation.” And Taurus “is about resources and finances,” says Williams.
Williams bills himself as a professional astrologer, and he even has a website where you can book a personal astrology reading with the former NFL star (at $300 for a 90-minute session). Williams also turned his passion for holistic medicine into a post-NFL career with the launch of Real Wellness, a line of cannabis-based products, in March.
