Last month I gave the direction to end service on my first app on the iTunes Apple Store, Astrology Zone Premier, which I had started in 2003. We had upgraded that app many times but now, with all the upgrades to Apple's phones, new code was necessary. Many readers wrote to me on Twitter, saying "My app is not working. It seems broken." Those readers missed the posts that I had posted here and in social media, that Astrology Zone Premier ended on November 13, 2013. If you have an iPhone, it's time to download my new app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" It is a free app with the option of subscribing to my longer content for less than a dollar a week. I have explained all in my letter to you, so please see this: http://bit.ly/1bd65B4 and also the FAQ I wrote for you: http://bit.ly/1bd65B4
There was a bug with the new app's subscription for one month, which we found because you were so kind to write and tell me. Phunware instantly jumped on that and was working on that fix last Friday.
Any questions about billing or technical advice, write to my app developer engineer: Jennifer@Phunware.com
Readers on Android or Samsung Galaxy can continue to use their version of Astrology Zone Premier (different code) for the time being. Readers living overseas or with ANY type of phone may subscribe to the same daily horoscopes as on iPhone by getting all 12 'scopes sent to your email in your cell phone and/or computer by going to http://www.DailyAstrologyzone.com.

Taurus Horoscope for December 2013
By Susan Miller
As a Taurus, having a secure nest egg is important to you. Your consistency is your secret, as most Taurus can always find ways to stash a little money away each month. Over the years, those savings add up.
This month, the friendly new moon, December 2, will bring you many opportunities to augment your finances. All new moons open a door of opportunity, and this one has such a strong and happy beam from Uranus, planet of surprise, that you may find your efforts bring you better, more lucrative results than you'd ever expect.
Your eighth house is being activated, and that house rules commissions, royalties, licensing fees, bonus, and all funds outside of salary. This house is called the house of other people's money, and usually is money you need to launch a big idea that would require more funding than most people would have in reserve. You may receive a mortgage or refinanced mortgage with excellent terms, or the bank loan or venture capital you need to launch a business. You may need to sort out the details of an inheritance from a relative's estate, or you might apply for a scholarship or financial aid so that you can pay for college tuition. These types of areas shine for you now, so meet with your banker or investors and present your case.
New moons bring new opportunity in the area of the chart it falls. In any new moon, my job is to show you will see the highest levels of productivity and to also help you with your timing. After that, you take over and supply the energy to make things happen. There is no predestination in astrology - you must take action to show the universe your intent. This month, if you are intent on finding a source of cash in terms of a large, one time payment, you may be surprised at how supportive people will be when you make you application.
If you are interviewing for a new job, you may be getting to the part of the interview process where money will be discussed with you. The December 2 new moon (plus ten days) will help you negotiate generous company benefits, whether that turns out to be health insurance, vacation days, matching tuition funds, a year-end bonus, and other such financial matters. You may even get approval to work at home one day a week if your commute is long. These side perks may be just as valuable as the salary you receive. Keep in mind that the new moon will be strongest the day it arrives, and will gradually fade in strength with each passing day until it is completely "spent" (this month, by December 12 or so) and the full moon begins to take over as dominant force.
This month will have high contrast between the happy spirit of the first half and the more serious mood that will take over the second half. The end of December has some very rocky storms rolling through, starting December 24, and they don't let up. I will tell you about those in a moment, but my point in telling you this is to suggest you act on all your most important financial dealings quickly, as the month opens, for you won't want to be doing so while thunderous aspects start to move in later.
I feel you will be pleasantly surprised at how well financial talks go, because Uranus will be so very supportive to this new moon in Sagittarius December 2 (11 degrees). Neptune, the planet that can bring confusion, will be slightly troublesome at this new moon, so make sure you understand all the terms of any deal or contract that you might be asked to sign. A good lawyer will be worth his weight in gold, for with both of you looking at the document, the chances of anything that could bite you later would be reduced. Early December will also be a fine time to do savvy tax planning with your accountant to take advantage of legal deductions for 2013.
By the full moon, December 17 in Gemini (25 degrees), you will be ready to finish up all your financial talks and actions. You may send a check to cover a large, previously made financial obligation, such as to cover the tuition for your next college semester, as one example, or to put a down payment on a house. Or at the full moon, you may buy a costly item you've always wanted. At any full moon you would have an extra four days beyond the date of the full moon to finish things up, but I would like you to wrap up talks and actions as quickly as you possibly can, and not go more than a day beyond the full moon December 17.
Venus, your guardian planet, will go retrograde on December 21 until January 31. Every sign has a ruling planet, and yours is this gentle planet Venus, planet of love and beauty. When Venus has one of her rare retrograde periods that happen every two years for several weeks, the areas she rules become weaker and less glittering.
Venus governs good looks, so it's not the time to schedule any plastic surgery, nor to make other radical changes to your appearance. For women, two examples might be not to cut hair short after having had it long for years. It would not be the time to go from being a brunette to a blonde. If you are a man, you might not want to shave off your beard on an impulse during the retrograde period of Venus. If you want to make changes to your appearance, do it well in advance of December 21. (Trims and regular grooming are always fine to do - here I am speaking only of radical changes to your appearance.)
Because Venus is your ruler, you will have to work harder to get approvals on anything you'd like to do once you come to December 21 to the end of January. You may need approvals and funding to start a big project, but by the time you edge closer to December 21, that money may be subject to delays.
These out of phase periods of Venus are not supportive for giving a lavish party or for getting engaged, for it marks a time when love and affection take a back seat to fulfilling tasks and working hard.
If you had hoped to get engaged for Christmas or New Year's, it would be wise to get engaged early in the month, and then share the good news with family and friends at the year-end holidays. The date you make the proposal or acceptance of the proposal is important, but the day you share the news with friends and family is not - not unless you expect a terrible response from relatives! (In that case, don't share news until February!) That's why I would like you to have your engagement early in the month, far away from the date Venus takes her nap.
If you were hoping to start a new business, the same rules apply to you. Venus has dominion over beauty and love, and also to some degree, to profits. While Jupiter and Pluto are tied more directly to big money and profits, Venus is too, and because Venus is your ruler adds another layer of importance.
If possible, do not sign papers and open the doors of your new business during the period that spans December 21 through January 31. Of all the actions that surround a new business, the signing of the paperwork marks the greater of the two moments, if you should have to choose. I would prefer you avoid signing papers AND opening your doors from December 21 to January 31, but sometimes life does not allow us to rearrange schedules as much as we would like to do.
Now, let's talk about love. If you are single, your best time to meet new romantic interests would be from December 1 to 6, when Mars will be in his final days of touring Virgo (a highly compatible sign for you) and will light your fifth house of true love.
You have hosted Mars in this area since October 15, and it may have marked a wonderfully social period for you. If not, hurry! You still have a few days left of Mars energy. If you get invited to a holiday party, or other gathering, go, for you may meet an interesting person you would absolutely want to know better.
Additionally, if you were to meet someone new with the hopes of having a long-term relationship (possibly forever!), ideally, you would need to have Venus in strong, direct orbit, not going retrograde, where emotions may be capped for the entire duration of the relationship.
I say that because if a new relationship starts after December 21 through January, its "birth" will have happened while Venus was debilitated in retrograde, indicating that your new relationship may never deliver the full promise of affection you expect. Emotions would not be expressed as easily and freely from your side or from your partner's side. I am sorry to have to report this news about Venus in retrograde just before the holidays. This suggests that celebrations may be more suitable if arranged on a smaller, more private scale.
Mars will enter Libra on December 7, but not stay its usual six weeks, but rather this time remain nearly eight months! Libra rules your sixth house of work projects, so this is the area where you will be focused for a long time, until Mars leaves Libra on July 25, 2014. If you are self-employed, this may be good news - business will be brisk! If you work for others, your company will do well, and that will be true - no matter if you are an employee or owner, you may have to hire more recruits in coming weeks to get all the work done.
Pay close attention to news and changes in life's tempo after December 7, when Mars will create a trend that will last through July. It looks as though your new focus will be on work, but it may also be on health and fitness, which would be a great way to use this trend. Mars, is the timekeeper of the zodiac, and always shows us where our main attention will be drawn.
There is a big reason why you should be very optimistic about your career. Uranus, the planet that rules your tenth house of honors, awards, achievement, and fame will go direct on December 17, having been retrograde since July 17.
This suggests that the days circling December 17 may bring a very big clue that you will be given a chance to take a big professional step up soon. Pay very close attention to news you hear regarding your career from VIPs - something seems to be about to move forward with a bang. If so, you will see this all manifest at the end of January through the first ten days of February. As you see, your career and financial outlook could not be better, dear Taurus.
If anything untoward should happen in your career (and I am NOT saying it will, but I cannot see all in your chart), I can say it is only a sign you had to get away from your present job to free yourself for one much better coming by early February.
Now comes the time I have to report news that I would have just preferred to not tell you about, but here it is.
On December 24-25, most of us expect the world to become quiet and peaceful, as people all over the world get ready to celebrate Christmas. Those who are not Christians or are not religious often get the day off. It is almost always a peaceful time of the year, when all of us, of all faiths, celebrate the goodness of others, and when we show generosity and thankfulness to people who had been good to us over the year. However, on this day (of all days) the warrior Mars will receive a major challenge from unpredictable Uranus. This is a very tense aspect, so let's talk about it.
You will have Mars in your sixth house of work assignments, so you might be among those who must work on December 24-25. If so, there appears to be calamity or pandemonium in the workplace. It may be that co-workers are tired or cranky and are making you that way too. Or, it may be that your work is seasonal, and clients or customers seem to be storming the gates needing everything at once.
This aspect, Mars opposite Uranus, can be expressed in an emotional way through angry outburst, or in a physical way, where there may be a mishap. Although in the US, Thanksgiving on November 28 brought very difficult travel conditions due to a massive snowstorm, my calculations show a more difficult time at Christmas. I am not a weather astrologer (that is a different specialty), but something seems to be adding tension at this time. Allow lots of time for travel, and don't cut your schedule too close. In a month like December, waiting for the last minute will bring disaster.
The same part of your chart, the sixth house, is associated with your health, so you must keep yourself strong this month. If you don't, you risk getting a cold that sends you to bed December 24-25. I want you to have a fun holiday, so do all that you can to avoid that scenario. If your doctor suggests getting a flu shot, do it early in the month so that the vaccine has time to work. (Experts say a flu shot takes at least three weeks to provide protection.) Keep up your program of eating nutritious foods, and because I see you will be in the middle of crowds, wash hands frequently.
The following week brings even more difficult rumblings from the heavens. On December 29, Mercury will receive an opposition from Uranus, planet of unanticipated events. Mercury rules travel, so check ahead before heading out. If inclement weather is indicated, be sure to have your car tuned up to deal with cold temperatures and possible snow. If you plan to fly, check with your airline about possible delays before you go to the airport. Mercury also rules news, so news that reaches you may not be what you want to hear, and if so, it would come out of left field.
On December 30, the Sun and Uranus will be at odds, and Mars will also be at odds with Pluto. Whoa. This is sure to be a tough day. Stick to work, and keep your head down and out of the line of fire. Again, travel is likely to be unexpectedly hard, possibly due to outside conditions beyond your control, but also possibly because work needs to get done before you go, an arduous task.
Things won't clear up by December 31. When Mercury will conjoin Pluto and be at odds with Mars, another difficult aspect for travel or for interaction with others will come up. Someone will be intent on getting you to agree to something you don't want and don't like, and is being very forceful about getting you to give your consent. Don't do anything you don't want to do, of course. For this reason, I would suggest you keep New Year's Eve plans simple. The moon will be in Capricorn, which is very compatible for you, so you may be able to dodge problems by staying home and keeping plans small and private.
Valentine's Day on February 14 will be sweet, and although Mercury will be retrograde throughout February, anything will be an improvement over the last days of December, dear Taurus.
A new moon in your financial sector may bring a cash settlement, bonus, commission, insurance payout, or other chunk of cash within the days that follow December 2. News may arrive suddenly, perhaps just when you had given up on any substantial payment arriving before year's end. The entire two-week period that will follow this new moon will be a prime time to work on getting a large, one-time payment of cash. Keep plugging in early December, and schedule a meeting on December 10 or 12, two excellent days to talk about these kinds of financial matters. By the full moon, December 17, you may be humming a very happy tune, for you will see that the focus you applied to these matters is clearly paying off.
That full moon will have you sending checks but may also find you receiving one too. If you are in a creative field, you may sell one of your creations, for Neptune, the planet that rules the arts, will be very friendly to that full moon, December 17.
When Mars enters your workaday sector on December 7, your workload will increase. This can be good news, for your expertise and experience will be prized, and it's good to stay busy. If self-employed, you will be in demand and be able to generate lucrative new clients and assignments. A large, final payment will likely come to you as a fee or payment owed to you close to December 17, which is the day of the full moon in your personal wealth sector.
The turn of Uranus to direct motion on December 17 should bring even more professional news, this time making you very excited. You will get a certain clue that the efforts you've made to get ahead are starting to gather steam. By the last day of January through early February, all that you've done in the past to build your career will reach a peak that allows you to reach for the stars and see major career advancement.
Mars in Libra for almost eight months will increase your stress levels as you work to handle a new workload. To relax, find ways to add time for exercise in your schedule. Protect your health by having routine medical exams done soon, and find ways to ward off colds.
You may work in a seasonal profession, because it appears you will be working harder, not less, as you get closer to the December holidays. A normally peaceful time will suddenly turn volatile, so choose words carefully, as everyone, of every sign will seem to be on edge. Demands at work may weigh heavily on your shoulders this holiday season, making you ready to snap at the slightest provocation.
If you have a romantic relationship, protect it by showing how much you care with kind words and gestures. Your partner may need to be patient and understanding while your schedule sputters out of control, particularly at month's end, as you seem to need to become ever more preoccupied with your job.
The last ten days of the month will be the hardest. Venus will go retrograde, adding to a no-frills atmosphere from December 21 to January 31. This is even more significant to you than most other signs because Venus is Taurus' ruler. You will need to concentrate on responsibilities, not social events or romance, but fortunately, this is only temporary - as trends go, this is a short one. Venus retrograde is not a good time to spend a lot of money on clothes or jewelry, or to make radical changes to your looks.
On December 24, Mars will oppose Uranus, a difficult vibration that often triggers harsh words. The pressure cooker atmosphere will continue to build into the following week. Travel will not go smoothly over the holiday season, but particularly not over December 24 and 29-31.
Keep New Year's plans simple. The new moon January 2 is not so friendly either, so we need to be able to get through all this with an emotional umbrella in hand. By Valentine's Day cosmic storms will clear and you'll be in the perfect state of mind to celebrate your love for someone special, or if single, to meet someone new.
Dates to Note: Taurus
Most romantic dates, and days you can use for other things too: December 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, and 19.
The new moon in Sagittarius on December 2 may bring outstanding news about a bonus, a sale, or other large sum that is on its way to you.
A sexy text or email may make you very happy indeed on December 3 when Mercury will be in fine angle to Mars.
December 7 Mars goes into Libra until July 25, 2014 - your work will be very busy. Protect your health, as you will be extending yourself quite a bit.
If you need to take a business trip out of town, do it on December 10 when Mercury trine Uranus and results will be positive.
You will like the results of any short trip you take on December 12 too, when Jupiter will send good signals to Saturn - you can plan a future path and sign a contract.
The full moon December 17 in Gemini will bring a culmination to a financial matter - could be a salary or bonus negotiation.
On December 17, Uranus will go direct after being retrograde since July 17 - watch your career take off!
Your ruler, Venus, will go retrograde from December 21 to January 31, 2014. Your plans will stall, so don't launch a project or do anything related to improving your looks - you may not like the results.
On December 24, Mars will be opposite Uranus, causing people around you to be very vocal and cranky. Don't let anyone provoke you.
Do not travel on December 29 when Mercury will be in hard angle to Uranus.
More difficult days ensue on December 30 when the Sun will be in hard angle to Uranus, and Mars will challenge Pluto. Do nothing of vital importance. Think before you invest and do research. Travel will be fraught.
This year New Year's Eve just is not what you expect it to be, for on December 31 Mercury will conjunct Pluto and Mercury will square Mars. People will feel out of sorts, be prone to drink too much, and some may drive recklessly. Take precautions.

The Club is located one block from Rockefeller Plaza and Saks Fifth Avenue and across the street from St. Patrick's Cathedral. It is a choice location, with many shops and restaurants nearby to sample at lunchtime or after the event. The middle of January is cold in New York, so if you would rather stay inside for lunch, you can opt to enjoy a 2-hour lunch with Susan and some of the other attendees on the Club premises. You must reserve your choices for lunch by January 6 so that the Club chef can prepare your meal for you.
The cost for the lunch will be an extra $65.00 including tax and gratuity. We do not make a profit on the lunch, but we provide this to you as an option because few want to go outside on a cold January day. The club lunch is delicious, and Susan will come from table to table to sit with you.

Order your tickets now before we sell out! This makes a lovely holiday gift for someone you love, especially if you come, too.
Please note: We cannot guarantee last minute admittance, for the Grand Ballroom will only hold up to 160 persons. The room was chosen for its acoustics, elegance, intimacy, and warmth.

Happy Birthday Astrology Zone!
18 Years on the Internet!
Since December 14, 1995
This is a particularly exciting anniversary for Astrology Zone for this month Astrology Zone comes of age. It is hard to believe how far the Internet has come since the day my site first debuted on Time Warner's Pathfinder website in 1995. The Internet was new, and most sites were in black and white. There were The Onion and The Well websites, AOL.com, Match.com and a few others, but there were not many commercial sites yet. On TV, when I would make an appearance, for years I was not allowed to mention my site's URL because the producers would tell me no one knows what a URL is yet.
It was exciting. None of us knew how things would develop, but each of us who started back then were eager to be part of the caravan of covered wagons heading metaphorically to Silicon Valley. After three years of exclusively licensing Astrology Zone to Time Warner, I had to leave because AOL had purchased Time Warner. I then switched my exclusive license of Astrology Zone to The Walt Disney Company, from March 27, 1999 until September 10, 2001. At that time, I moved Astrology Zone to my own servers and hired my own team. After six years on the Internet, it was time to become independent.
I had learned a lot from the time I had spent with Time Warner and The Walt Disney Company. I have always owned my site 100 percent and preferred to bootstrap rather than go for venture capital. All these years, I have had fun growing my dear Astrology Zone. Now, coming to my 18th anniversary on the Internet, it is time to do something special. I have a big announcement! Here it is!
Astrology Zone now has a separate website in Spanish!
This is a dream come true, as for the past ten years I have sought the right partner to work with me on this dream. I carried that dream in my pocket, hoping I would meet precisely the right investor to help me get my plan underway. I write a lot (that's the good news) and I write a lot (that's the bad news, especially when you have to translate those words). I hoped to find someone who came from South America and who spoke Spanish as a native language. All my dreams came true when, at my annual event at The Three West Club, I met the ideal person to work with me. My Spanish website has been in development for a year, and throughout 2013 I had with many meetings here in New York and conference calls to the team to South America. We are ready to show you all that we have done.
Please let your Spanish speaking friends know about my new Spanish Astrology Zone site because I want to hear their feedback on Twitter @AstrologyZone and on Facebook (Susan Miller).
We will start my new Spanish version Astrology Zone on December 2, the date of the glorious new moon, which will appear in New York City at 7:22 PM. After the new moon appears, we will throw the switch! Here are the URLS:
A New Service: WiFive.us
Don't we all love a bargain?
In December, when each of us are busy and shopping for gifts, we all want to know about the deals being offered nearby in our neighborhoods to save money. I found a way when a brilliant entrepreneur, Luis Sanchez, came to see me to show me he had developed a way of seeing all the various deal-of the-day websites that are featuring discounts on food, entertainment, boutiques, and other establishments, all in one click. Traveling? All you need to do is enter the zip code of your new neighborhood as you travel each day and you can see the deals that may be just across the street from your hotel.
The company is called Wifive.us and is ready to use today. It is a New York-based startup with a location-based search engine that gives you access to thousands of local online deals in a single site.
For now, Wifive.us is only available in the United States. It covers most of deals services you would see from various sources, (Groupon, Amazon, Google deals, and so forth), all at once, so you don't have to go from site to site to find a deal that appeals to you, as Luis would humorously say, "until your head hurts." There is no registration necessary, and no useless emails to stuff your inbox each day.
Just type your address or ZIP code and get the deals you want when you want them. You pull in your information, which is far better than having many emails pushed to you. Try it and like the service on Facebook!
A word about the web address of Wifive.us
You may be wondering, what exactly is .US?
You might have thought the domain ending .us would only be only for government agencies and schools, but since 2002, individuals, businesses, churches, and non-profits have adopted .us web addresses to make their mark on the Internet. The .US is a new domain ending.
Just remember the name of the new service that no doubt you will be using quite a bit: pronounced as "wi-five-dot-us" otherwise seen as:

The Year Ahead 2014 Astrological Calendar By Susan Miller
Calendars are used to mark time, but have you ever had a calendar that helped you use your time productively? Search no more - Susan Miller's The Year Ahead 2014 Calendar can do just that. Susan has built up a buzz on the Web due to her accurate advice for when to launch ventures and when to hold back. She writes every word herself in this stunning calendar with original fine art by socialite, author, and fine artist Gloria Vanderbilt, mother of newsman Anderson Cooper, and great grandchild of railroad entrepreneur Cornelius Vanderbilt. (Grand Central Station was originally her great grandfather's business headquarters.)
Gloria Vanderbilt, now almost 90 years young, licensed the reproduction rights to her critically acclaimed artwork to Susan Miller who self-published her calendar. The inks are rich, the paper heavy, glossy, and snow white, allowing Gloria's paintings to jump off the page. Each month, from January 2014 though the extra bonus month, January 2015, is found an inspirational quote from Gloria, centering on her philosophy of living life fully and creatively. With fourteen of Gloria's paintings, this calendar will soon become a collector's edition and will not be reprinted when stocks are gone.
Aside from having happy, vibrant art to look at all year, The Year Ahead 2014 calendar has many other uses, unlike any you have had in a calendar before. On every important day of each month Susan lists the aspect and what it means, in easy to understand laymen's language. This means the next time you are about to make an important appointment, and the VIP asks you, "Do you want to come in Monday or Thursday?" you can say you will consult your calendar, and know immediately the day to choose.
In a year like 2014, where sparkling aspects will stand side by side difficult ones, this calendar will not be a luxury but a necessity. Susan Miller enthusiasts will treasure this gift, and friends who have never heard of Susan will become fans quickly too.
Also included in the calendar are:
- All the start and end dates of the retrograde planets in 2014,
- Detailed discussion of the new and full moons (new!)
- The date when planets move into new signs (and how long they will be in that sign), all listed on the same day entry.
- You will also have all the planetary aspects of the four eclipses due in 2014, and explanation of what each eclipse will bring.
Be in the know about when to plan your biggest initiations. This is a "must" on any list and is available here, from Susan's publisher, but not in bookstores or other retailers. Get it now, while you can: $17.99 plus tax and shipping.
An Important Announcement to iPhone Users from Susan Miller:
Goodbye to My Former iPhone App on November 12, Hello to My New One:
"Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!"
This month, I am ending my Astrology Zone Premier App, which was initially developed in 2003 and upgraded in 2005. I am replacing it with my new iPhone app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" now available from the Apple App Store. Many of you have already downloaded it and have given me very positive reviews. Thank you!
We had announced the end of Astrology Zone Premier in September's Astrology Zone, but I realized that may people do not see Twitter and Facebook and may have missed my posts. I asked Phunware to continue to support Astrology Zone Premier through the difficult-for-many month of October, so that I would be with you, offering inspiration to you during that time. This extra time would allow everyone who has an iPhone a chance to download my new app and subscribe so that they would not experience any interruption of service.
If you purchased "Astrology Zone Premier" for your iPhone sometime from 2003 to early 2013, that app will now be retired on November 12. We quietly removed "Astrology Zone Premier" from Apple's App Store months ago, in anticipation of this changeover. My original, older app has not been available for purchase for the iPhone for months, to make sure no one would buy that older app, only to hear it was being discontinued.
The good news is that Astrology Zone Premier is being replaced with my newer and more robust app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" currently available from the Apple App Store. It will work on many versions of the iPhone (including version 7.02) and most versions of the iPad. You can download it for free. Simply search "Susan Miller" in the Apple App Store to find it.
If you have grown fond of my former app with my long daily forecasts and are sorry to see that app go, you can still get the same high quality long, daily forecasts as you always did at a low subscription fee. You will have a choice of what length of time a subscription you would like to buy.
You can choose the yearly option of $49.99, which works out to be less than $1.00 a week - less than the price of a cup of coffee. Some readers may opt for three months for only $12.99. You will find a list of options.
No Advertising, Ever, on Upgraded Subscriber Version of my New App
Many of you asked that I not run advertising on your app, and I agree with your thinking - if you subscribe, you will never see ads. However, advertising will continue to run on the free version of my app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" to help support it.
Menu of Costs to Subscribe - Chose the Subscription Best for YOU.
If you choose to upgrade to my subscription version, which you can do inside the free app as you use it, you will find a list of fees. All fees are stated in US currency.
My New App is Chock Full of Information You Need to Plan
Get 425,000 Words a Year of Daily Horoscopes for All 12 signs!
If you subscribe, you will continue to get my typical 425,000 words a year for your robust daily horoscope, prepared with love, by me, fresh every day. Many readers are surprised that I publish so much text on my cell phone app, but indeed, that's the word count for a year's worth of daily horoscopes for all 12 signs, the equivalent of ten books! You won't be limited to one sign when you get my app - free or by subscription - you can always easily read for your Sun sign, rising sign, and any of the 12 signs of friends and family each day by going to the app's front screen.
Sunday's (Subscribed) Long Forecast is Always for the Week Ahead
In terms of the daily horoscopes I write, when I write each Sunday's forecast, I look at the entire week ahead, not just the day, as has been the custom in published horoscopes in the US. Make sure you read your Sunday horoscope, for those forecasts are extra long and comprise much information to help you plan your week.
Extra Content Like Important Dates You'll Love
That nearly half-million word count does not include the many extras you will get by upgrading as well. You will ALSO get the evergreen content I write (content that describes your personality) on the app - such as the wildly popular Matchmaker Guide that is 65,000 words. Evergreen articles are informational and never go out of date.
See "Important Dates" (far left on the menu bar in the lifestyle section) to check dates for your current month and beyond before you schedule any key appointments, interviews, or presentations. You will know your best days at a glance. That section took me five months to write for you. I feel you will love it.
Little Alerts From Me, Daily
Also, each day you will get a reminder alert from me that appears on the face of your iPhone, saying, among other things, that your daily horoscope is ready for you to read. Many people tell us they love getting that little message from me each morning. If you prefer to turn the alerts off, you can do so in your iPhone settings.
Read My MONTHLY Astrology Zone report that you have come to read on the Internet on both versions of my App:
Free or Upgraded by Subscription
You have told me that you enjoy reading the AstrologyZone.com monthly horoscopes that I post on the Internet at the start of every month. You told us you want to have my long monthly Astrology Zone forecast on your iPhone, too. You will continue to be able to see your report on your app, on both the free and upgraded versions. Every iPhone user will have my monthly Astrology Zone report in his or her pocket to refer to as the month progresses.
If you have my new FREE version of my app and like it, as is, and you don't mind the occasional ads you see, you need do nothing - you will continue to receive my short daily forecasts for all 12 signs each day, seven days a week. They are my bits of chocolate that I prepare for you. As said, paid subscription or not, you will also still be able to read my monthly AstrologyZone.com forecast on your iPhone.
If you want more daily horoscope information, then you will enjoy my advertising-free long daily horoscopes (75 to 80 words per sign per day, and often longer) for the low cost of $12.99 for three months on your iPhone, as one example.
New Social Media Features on My App
We have added new features to my new app that we feel you'll enjoy. On my new iPhone app, you will be able to go directly to my Twitter account from your iPhone, where you will find me posting notes nearly every day @AstrologyZone. You can also go directly to my Facebook page from my app. (To find either social media account, look for the blue star on top of the screen in your app.) We plan to add other new features in the second version of my app - we have lots of ideas!
Android and Samsung Users: A Heads Up On What's Coming
If you are an Android or Samsung user, for the time being you will still be able to use the app you have now, "Astrology Zone Premier," which is completely compliant with your Android or Samsung cell phone. We are currently writing code for the new FREE version for these phones, and that app will be identical to the one that iPhone users have now. That changeover will occur within a few months, so please stay tuned. When it does, my former, older app, "Astrology Zone Premier," for Android and Samsung will eventually be retired, too. You will be informed in advance.
If you DO NOT have an iPhone, Android, or Samsung smart phone, you can still get my daily horoscopes to your E-Mail on Daily Astrology Zone!
You can get the identical horoscopes I write for iPhone, Android, and Samsung Galaxy cell phones - for all 12 signs each day (just as you can on my app) - sent to you by email daily. My forecasts are long - 75 to 100 words each day - and would be readable on your computer, tablet, or any cell phone by subscribing to Daily AstrologyZone. For more information, and a sample, go to www.DailyAstrologyZone.com
Ending My Former App Took Courage, But Allowed Me to Continue to Give You Premium Content
It was a hard decision to end Astrology Zone Premier, but my choices were limited: 1) Close down my former app and do not offer an app anymore, because costs to maintain it were growing; 2) Lower my quality of the forecasts (never an option I ever considered); 3) Continue to give you the very best in premium horoscope content that I write, and for that, charge a reasonable subscription fee. After reading your comments and critical reviews of my new app in Apple's App Store, and seeing that your reviews were so positive, I chose to go the subscription route.
I hope you will continue to support my app, as the funds you send help me to keep my website AstrologyZone.com free for one and all. For those who can't afford to subscribe to my new iPhone app (or for any other reason choose not to get a subscription), you will still get my other, short, free forecast for 365 days a year.
My App Made Top Ten Subscription Apps in ITunes under Lifestyle
My new app, "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" ranked #1 of most popular app in the Apple App Store under LIFESTYLE on September 9. (These ranks change daily - often hourly!) Your level of enthusiasm gave me the courage to let go of my old app and ask Phunware to write code for an entirely new app.
To sum up, Astrology Zone Premier will no longer be supported starting November 12, so you might want to download my free version of "Susan Miller's AstrologyZone Daily Horoscope FREE!" today. (Searching simply for "Susan Miller" should bring it up immediately.)
Your present app, Astrology Zone Premier will not automatically change over to the new free app, so you will have to download it. Once you have it, you can decide soon if you would like to upgrade to the version you've come to know and love by looking inside the app and buying the subscription inside the app. If you do so soon, you will avoid any disruption in service. If you should have to reload and reinstall your app, you will not lose your subscription.
If you have any questions or need help, you can write to Jennifer@Phunware.com and Jennifer will be happy to help you.
