Sparks ~ Some Groovy Astrology Sites


In my "Sparks" feature, I write about things I dig. For today's Sparks, I present three Web sites on astrology that rock my Casbah.


I've been using AstroAdvice for a decade, easily, if not longer. Register for a free account and learn a helluva lot about yourself. Use the "Romance Compatibility" section to get a rating of your particular attachment as well as pretty danged accurate interpretations of how you and your honey's planetary aspects have y'all relating to one another.


You register at AstroDienst to get in depth analyses of your psyche as well. My fave feature of this site is the Free Daily Horoscope, which seeks out the most important planetary action in your particular chart. They, like the above site, provide paid-for reports, but I find them both rather pricey. But the free stuff here, as well as on AstroAdvice, is pretty nifty. On Thursdays, you can read for free about other transits impacting your life (which, during the other days of the week, you need to be a member to see).


If having to register for free stuff pisses you off, you may want to check out Cafe Astrology, where you can also obtain very in-depth natal chart/romantic compatibility chart analyses, for free and without giving them identifying info on yourself (of course, you can use fake names for any/all of these). They also provide loads of other freebies, in terms of monthly/yearly 'scopes, broken down by decanates (check the site to learn more about these). Paid-for reports are also available here, and I've bought a few over the years, as they're way more affordable than others I've seen, plus I've found their interpretations to be pretty spot on.

And because I'm in an expansive frame of mind (must have some Jupiter transit going on), I'll give honorable mentions to Matrix Software's Oracle and e-Tarocchi, two other fun sites where you can easily while away your hours.

  1. I get a kick out of astrology, especially horoscopes, but I usually stick to the ones in my local paper. Some days, they are eerily accurate.

    1. Sometimes my rising sign horoscope fits better than my sun sign, when we're talking local paper 'scopes.

  2. You know, I try to think I'm firmly grounded in science. I tell people I'm an agnostic/atheist depending on how you want to define god. I don't believe in luck (I call it a mathematical improbability) but it's certainly not a force of nature or anything like that. I don't believe in ghosts or an afterlife. Yet...

    I own two tarot decks, and I know how to use them. I sometimes read my horoscope (I'm a Leo), and I've had my palm read by someone who says they were psychic.

    I'm a confused man when you get past all the shell. Yes, I've given people tarot readings and they've proven to be remarkably accurate. It's weird. I think if I were pressed for an explanation, I would say "I do these things because they are fun. They are pleasing."

    Anyway...astrology interests me even if I don't believe in it. Is that weird?

    1. I don't think it's weird. I think, because you're a writer, your mind is wide open and can hold numerous understandings of things as one time unlike, perhaps, someone with a more narrow view of the world. Also, I think all of us must experience confusion at various points in our lives...after all, it's not like we've got all the answers to every mystery in this plane of existence, eh? :-)

  3. I registered for the first link b/c I wanted to see my and Russell's romance compatibility and I think they missed the mark with our score. Big time. lol

    1. How was all the interpretive stuff that followed the score?

    2. Not good at all....I didn't think any of it was accurate, unfortunately.

    3. Well, if the interpretation pointed to all bad things, then I'm glad it's wrong! :-)

  4. Cool! I loved Linda Goodman's Love Signs and a few more of her books when I was younger. I found them really interesting and accurate. I don't have much time for astrology now though. :P

    1. Agreed; I've got her Love Signs book and also her Star Signs. She did a great job of interpreting planetary action in the signs/houses.

  5. I always read my horoscope and it never aligns with what's going on in my life. Strange but true. I used to be into dream books. Thx for sharing. :)

    1. If you know your rising sign, maybe look at that for your horoscope fix instead of your sun sign. I was totes into dream books, too. :-)

  6. Very cool! I love astrology and have a friend who put together a basic chart for me. I also love to read tarot cards and other New age things.

    1. I read tarot from when I was about 16 to my early 30s. I think I was a fairly successful interpreter, most of the time, except for when I read for myself, maybe.

  7. I read mine everyday -- I just get so sad when all the negative stuff hits and all the positive stuff never does! :)

    Always seeking enlightenment like how a water sign and fire sign shouldn't -- oh but we did!

    Checking out all the links!

    1. As regards the predictive aspects of astrology, it does seem to me, as well, that the bad stuff comes, rather than the good. Alas! :-) Hope you enjoy the links!
