Horoscope Review: Sally Brompton's Daily Online Horoscopes

Updated on October 11, 2018

Sylvia Sky, M.A., is a widely published author of books and articles about astrology and occult and spiritual matters.

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 weekly horoscope. Brompton is one of Britain's top three tabloid astrologers, all full-time professionals, and she's what the British admiringly call "spot-on."

I found Brompton's daily horoscopes in only two North American newspapers, one of them The New York Post online. It works fine on PC or mobile. Daily views are free. I switched my bookmark away from The Toronto Globe and Mail where access to the horoscope used to be free but the paper now limits visits to its pages. The Post's horoscope lacks only the Toronto paper's Sunday "Lookahead Horoscope" for the coming week.

Brompton's horoscopes are intelligent, astrologically accurate, original (not computerized), compact, good-humored and practical. I couldn't ask for more. Samples:

  • 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."
  • Aquarius, Oct. 25, 2017: "Upheavals of one kind or another are likely over the next few days and there will be times when you wish your life was more straightforward. The good news is that this chaotic phase will be followed by one of huge success. Chaos can be creative."

Yes, I've been reading Sally Brompton's daily horoscopes over many years, and they do not disappoint. True story: In June 2017, about to send a long angry email to someone who deserved it, I saw Brompton's daily horoscope advising my Sun Sign not to send an angry email. It actually said that! I thought, Sally knows, so I did not send it. The restraint she advised ended up profitably for me, and restored a pleasant friendship.

Visiting SallyBrompton.com

SallyBrompton.com is a very 2010-style website, too minimal to let her wit and wisdom shine through, but fans of Brompton's column might want to visit. At sallybrompton.com click "Know Thyself" on the portal page. On Brompton's home page, scroll down to read the current year's overview horoscope for your Sun Sign (the British call it the "star sign."). It's brief and basic but astrologically accurate. Find "Daily" on that page, and a click will take you to The New York Post column.

Clicking on your Sun Sign icon at the top of the home page turns up a brief character analysis stating that Sun Sign's fundamental needs. They're spot-on.

A menu with choices labeled "Your Relationships," "Your Health" and other core concerns let you learn about the traits of any sign you choose. A link inviting you to learn yet more gives a phone number and asks 60 pence per minute for a four-minute recorded message -- available only in the United Kingdom.

Clicking "Love Signs" -- as of course you will -- promises an "Interactive Love Chart" in exchange for your birth data, but unhappily gives no result at all. "Your Personal Charts" is a dead link. "Your Future" leads to a phone number for an extended weekly forecast, again 60 pence per minute and limited to U.K. callers. Brompton's daily texting service, something North Americans would love, is U.K. only.

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!

I recommend Sally Brompton's reliable and encouraging daily horoscope column for its professionalism and accuracy.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
