Horoscope Review: Sally Brompton's Daily Online Horoscopes

One of Britain's Top Three

Before the Internet, in the grocery store checkout line I'd grab a copy of TV Guide and read astrologer Sally Brompton's horoscope for the approaching week. Brompton is one of Britain's top three tabloid astrologers, all full-time professionals, and she's what the British admiringly call "spot-on." When TV Guide went online and dropped its horoscopes I looked for Brompton in TV Guide Online UK, but the horoscopes there were by Russell Grant, who delivered more or less a fortune cookie. He's no longer there; he's got a career in acting.

I found Brompton's daily horoscopes in only two North American newspapers, one of them The New York Post online. It works fine on a PC. My Android smartphone accessed her column for three years until The Post made changes that showed me black blanks where the horoscopes had been. I had the option then of buying a New York Post app that almost all commenters say is loaded with bugs and ads. But I chose to simply switch my mobile bookmark to The Toronto Globe and Mail (globeandmail.com) and now enjoy Brompton's daily 'scopes free through my smartphone once again.

Sally Brompton's horoscopes are intelligent, astrologically accurate, original (not computerized) and compact. A sample, Libra, Sept. 15, 2012:

"Your efforts at impressing people in authority are having a negative effect. Maybe you should go to the other extreme and pretend you don’t care what anyone thinks of you. Alternatively, find a sensible Libran balance."

Although sallybrompton.com has good Sun-Sign character information and a compatibility analysis of Charles and Camilla, it doesn't have daily horoscopes or Brompton's stunning weekly horoscopes like those formerly appearing in TV Guide. That weekly 'scope runs in the online version of the Sunday London Daily Mail but you can't see it Sundays unless you pay; media lord Rupert Murdoch owns the Mail (and TV Guide, The New York Post, and FOX News), and he isn't giving anything away. Normally it's visible on Mondays but sometimes it's out of date, so going there might waste your time. Brompton also writes, in teeny-bopperese, monthly horoscopes for the print version of Seventeen, but that magazine's online horoscopes come from astrology.com. A complicated business, astrology!

Brompton's professionalism and accuracy is striking. I read her advice every day. Unfortunately it's hard for her online horoscope fans to get more of her.

Hi Sylvia, I must agree with you upon Sally Brompton's accuracy and profesionalism. I am absolutely NOT inclined to believe in astrology and definitely not in pre-determination. However, whenever I read Sally Brompton's horoscope, it is so accurate, most of the time, that I feel uneasy and I wonder how she does it.

Thank You. Missed Patrick Walker. Glad you are here - grateful that Walker trained and nurtured Brompton well. Visited Orr's and Cainer's sites - Thank You for sharing, still loves Brompton for her accuracy. You are doing great work.

I agree with LauraAranda. Sally Brompton's accuracy is frighteningly on point. It has predicted major life events for me. I don't even like to leave my house without checking it.

I, also, have been looking at Sally Brompton's weekly in the TV Guide at the checkstand. It has only changed, this past year, to some other persons', and they do not seem to have a talent for accuracy, like Brompton. Thanks for your article. It was comforting to find out Sally's accuracy and competency was not my imagination, all these years.

I couldn't agree more! I followed the same path - from tv guide to new york post to the globe!!
