Horoscope Review: Bethea Jenner at Joypeaceandhappiness.com

What Bethea Promises

She's a Real Person!

The long corny URL "joypeaceandhappiness.com" leads you to Bethea, also at BetheaJenner.com, who advertised having a "sixth sense" and offers free weekly astrological forecasts, free Tarot, and a free biorhythm chart. She sounds like a typical fake astrologer. But unlike online "psychics" such as Gabriella who are not real people, Bethea Jenner is a real and intelligent person with genuine astrological background. She had a modest career as an astrologer for British radio and London's Daily Mirror newspaper, and of course a website.

But then, like many other media astrologers, Jenner suddenly claimed to have psychic powers and the keys to joy, peace, and happiness. (The URL "myhealthwealthandhappiness.com" also led you to Bethea.) She's what I call an Online Psychic 2.0, a genuine astrologer who decided to style herself as a psychic, knowing full well that there is nothing "psychic" about astrology, and hawking tacky $120 "power bracelets" with horseshoe and dice charms. She knew that instant "psychic" readings -- no charts or years of study required -- make a lot of money, and much faster than legitimate sidelines such as birth charts and books.

It might surprise you, but professional astrologers rarely make a living from astrology. People balk at paying certified experts $100 for an hour-long consultation using real birth and transit charts. Yet crowds of thousands are positively eager to pay $6.99 a minute for an instant "psychic" reading, which amounts to $419 an hour. Let's say you're Bethea and strapped for cash. Which business model would you prefer?

She's Not the Only Sellout Astrologer

As an Online Psychic 2.0, Jenner also had a blog, a Facebook page, and videos on YouTube, obviously reading her lines and not looking particularly healthy, wealthy, joyful, or happy. When you asked for your free reading you got computerized advice.

Instead of monetary success, Jenner racked up a negative reputation among consumers. At BetheaJenner.com, she describes herself accurately as an astrologer and author. But when you send your email address for her free weekly forecast, there it is: She titles herself a "world-renowned psychic" once again, and just like any fake psychic tells you that you have a special destiny and exceptional aura and that "Your personality has drawn me like a magnet." Five minutes after I input my email address I received Bethea's message saying she has spent "hours" studying my charts. After that, Bethea's emails are relentless and surreal: Buy and wear this $100 "horn of plenty" pendant and you are promised a direct connection to the Archangel Gabriel plus a house with cathedral ceilings and granite countertops.

This is all really sad. Not only for Bethea Jenner, but for any customers she has. Her last blog post appeared on 21 August 2008. The "Biorhythms" button on her homepage leads to a nonfunctional page. "A Look at the Stars" has a forecast for the year 2015 and some planetary transits, so the site is not dead. But her reputation is.

No, Bethea is not one of the famous Jenners, or related to them. And she is not the only astrologer doing this, to the detriment of their honor and their honorable profession: either claiming personal psychic powers or lending their names to a roster of "live expert psychics" listed on the website.

    Bethea is false and a waste of money. She cannot help you win $100,000 a month.

    Yadira, I am a writer and do not give personal readings. Psychics are useless in your case; you said you "want to change your life" and nobody can do that but yourself. Find a local Tarot card reader, or talk with a professional counselor or an older, wiser person who has lived a good life, and ask for their advice. Your problem will not be the first one like it they have heard of. Follow their advice. Good luck to you.

    Hi Sylvia! My name is Yadira, I'm from Venezuela, then from reading the comments, I am very interested to know if you may fulfill myself a consultation with you even for email, since I've gone to many clairvoyants on line and found to be a scam I need guidance on the economic and the sentimental, live in a big confusion between reason and feeling, because I wanted to be with my partner, but his attitude and lack of value and respect for me, tells me that I stay away from him. I have a child of seven years, and I do not want my son to suffer as I am suffering this situation. I appreciate the heart that orientaras me please and so give a change to my life! My email is: yflores502@hotmail.com And thank you very much beforehand. tengo 29 años, naci el 2 de mayo de 1984 a las 4:55 de la madrugada

    Sorry that you were taken in by Bethea's tricks. If you paid by credit card, phone the credit-card company and dispute the charge.

    Thanks for exposing these people for what they are, Sylvia! I find that when a person comes to an Astrologer or Tarot reader for advice, they are usually struggling with a real problem. A few are just looking for entertainment, but I think the first group are more prevalent. It's nasty that anyone would prey on a person when they are upset and possibly not using their best judgement.
