If You Want Real Astrology as Your Companion and Guide

Not all free online daily horoscopes are written by actual astrologers. But there are indeed real and serious horoscopes you can read for free online.

Fake horoscopes are written and recycled by computers or in "horoscope factories" that give hired writers (college students) two or three hints and then tell them to make up the rest. If you want better, see the list of real daily-horoscope astrologers below.

Every human astrologer has a different style and approach to chart interpretation and forecasting. Listed below are genuine and hard-working astrologers. I've talked with or emailed some of them. They might have help charting and organizing 12 horoscopes a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, but real astrologers will openly admit when they have a co-writer and will proudly acknowledge the co-writer's participation.

In alphabetical order, here's a starter list of online legitimate astrologers known to me to be real people writing original daily and/or weekly/monthly forecasts, whose forecasts are free and written in English. The links are to their columns, not necessarily their homepages.

This is a starter list. Surely I have missed or not monitored other real astrologers (I monitor for months and sometimes contact the astrologer before publishing my detailed horoscope reviews). For those a little more advanced in astrology I especially like--for its intelligent horoscopes of all types--Cafe Astrology, whose astrologer is Annie Heese. Other astrologers might be new online, or forecast in languages besides English, or require readers to subscribe and pay to read their horoscopes. I know of one premium daily horoscope site that professional astrologers consider worth its price: AstroDienst. Guest access is free!

Hard to believe, but daily-horoscope writing, online or in print, pays so little that most real astrologers also sell to individuals natal horoscopes, birthday horoscopes (called "solar return charts"), compatibility horoscopes (called "composite charts" or "synastry"), answers to questions ("horary astrology"), telephone consultations, books or e-books, apps, or membership allowing entry to privileged areas of their sites. I can't guarantee that all those items will be custom-written or good. But selling them is legitimate. Astrologers selling "clairvoyant" or "psychic" services are not legitimate. Genuine astrology is learned. It is never "clairvoyant," "psychic," "supernatural," "intuitive" or "inborn." Real astrologers never call their work "spooky" or "scary." Astrologers want to help people, not scare them.

Clues that a Horoscope Is Fake or Its Astrologer is Real But Corrupt

  • Author claims to be "psychic," medium, shaman, priest, clairvoyant, spell-caster, or prophet
  • An oversized professional color glamour photo of him or her on the site, looking hot or mysterious
  • A "free trial offer" reading said to be personalized for you
  • If you can Google your day's Sun-sign horoscope and find it word for word listed under another Sun sign on another date, that's "recycling" and a computer does it
  • Gives stupid advice like "Build a fort out of couch cushions and hide behind them all day and don't come out for anyone" (honestly, that's word-for-word!)
  • Calls you by the wrong Sun-sign nickname: For example, you are Sagittarius and your zodiac nickname is "The Archer," but the horoscope calls you "The Ram" or "The Crab," or "The Water Bearer"; someone's not minding the store
  • Googling the astrologer reveals bitter consumer complaints of actual money ripoffs. (Once in a while, Googling reveals personal attacks from one astrologer on another. Ignore these.)

Thank you for telling me the truth. Sara Freder is sending me messages for the last 2 months. But I am firm not to be her prey. When I read her long messages I feel psychologically puzzled and I seem to be almost on the verge of accepting her offers. But no , I am a wise man and will not be intimidated by her dangerous comments.

Adrian Ross Duncan was a real astrologer who has decided to make money the way the the fake psychics do: through pestering emails, computerized messages and readings, and so on. Don't waste your money.

Linda, I do not do individual readings. I do however know some astrologers who do. They are genuine professionals so it is not free. Email me at horoscopereview@gmail.com for contact info.

If you mean Adrian Ross Duncan, so many have asked about him that I finally contacted him to get the facts. He is a genuine astrologer, but has a business association with the questionable site AstrologyAnswers.com which signs his name to their rather cheesy emails, which he doesn't personally write, and he says he doesn't have the time to okay them all. He says the reports AstrologyAnswers.com advertises are created from his software, and are genuine. He has his own websites, World of Wisdom, and AstroWOW.com, and if I wanted a report I'd buy it directly from there.

Useful input. I tried his report through Astrology Answers.com Guess his software is pretty detailed report was lengthy and requires time to dig through. Sylvia are any of the current 12/13 experts real on that site. I tried two of them for a question and their response felt surprisingly realistic. Most responses take at least 48 hours. did not find the pictures overly glamorous but anything can be airbrushed.I suppose if not real I did find it very consoling. Believe I asked Evelyn Porter and Evan Chen.
