Dear followers, friends and family --
Just a few lines to inform you that despite the steady momentum of my intent, astrological studies do not seem prepared yet, to let me go…
You will have noticed Astrologywizard.com has been on hiatus for a few months. Though apparently, brought on by circumstances beyond my control, really nothing happens in this multiverse without a reason. The urgent requirement for financial input, reflected an overdue need to value myself and the time I have devoted to providing free and quality horoscopes, online and in good time, every week for thirty years.
While it would be wonderful, to enjoy an independent income that allowed me selflessly, to devote my days to the welfare of those who cannot spare a few coins in return, unfortunately in the real world life does not work similarly for me. I have watched from the sidelines as charlatans and hypocrites proliferate over the Internet, a number of whom were or are, of my personal acquaintance. I have witnessed them preying on the desperate, gullible and vulnerable; using their plentiful cash and leisure time for greed and self-aggrandisement, while those with greater talent, but more honesty and integrity were marginalised and left without support amid a flood of nepotism and backslapping.
Luckily, the sabbatical I have been enjoying over the past few months, has allowed me to recuperate and to rediscover much of the joy that an understanding of cosmic portents used to bring me. In particular, I have been able to extend my research into the current frontiers of astrological understanding, that seems so essential for astrology to regain any kind of credibility in the future. Maybe one day I will be ready to disseminate such information publicly, but from a personal perspective I am learning to respect myself and not to continue damaging my physical and emotional well-being, with the kind of schedule most could not endure for hours, let alone throughout the last three decades.
I have received a number of thoughtful and generous donations; that are helping to restore my faith in human nature just a little bit. I have endeavoured to reply to every donor in person, to prove their contribution has been noticed and individually appreciated. Please be aware that for me this is a question of economics, not one of profiteering or earning a fat living. So at the bottom of this box you’ll see a row of banking logos. Clicking on these takes you through to PayPal, where you can give an amount of your own choosing, to demonstrate your support and understanding of a fellow human being who in turn, has previously and unconditionally extended the hand of friendship to you.
But in the end I am aware, this is a business and not a charity. Thus, despite what may have seemed like defeatism and negativity, I remain ready to analyse your horoscope, answer your questions, or provide mini-consultations for those able to visit me in person. I am open to advertising opportunities, group and individual tuition, articles, book sales, investment and media appearances. I feel that in the end, maybe astrology needs me more than the other way around. You are never going to spot this site on social media: I am too busy running my own website and practice, to line the pockets of shadowy and shady businessmen who’d never reward me for my input, even if I pretended to try.
So I have slowly reconciled myself to losing the top spot on Google, while seeing my traffic decimated, although gradually turning around. Do bear in mind that I originate from and survive within an expensive part of a costly country and need to charge accordingly. But the personal attention and service I provide is in my opinion and that of my regular customers, worth this and more. Plus I aim to offer advice suited to every pocket, from the free horoscopes on my website through to exclusive personal attention. My weekly horoscopes are at this point, some distance from a reappearance. But what goes around comes back again and you never know, those who give might also receive.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
