does Susan visit the Astrology Zone® Message
Susan frequents the board occasionally, although
she has very little time currently to actively participate
in discussions. Writing Astrology Zone forecasts takes two
full weeks for her to write each month, so you can imagine
why Susan can so rarely visit the board. She has created the
board for us.
You can study astrology with Susan Miller on
Barnes & Noble's University, which is a free on-line class
given in alternate months. For more information, go to www.bn.com and look for "on line classes." Look
under the section called Life Improvement and you will see
the free five-week class, "Astrology: Planets & Possibilities"
You will not have to come to the class at any set time; the
class is a virtual class. You get to print out all the free
material and post questions on the Barnes & Noble dedicated
message board set up exclusively for the class. It's fun and
easy and it will provide you a way to meet other like-minded
people, interested in astrology. Susan personally answers

are the monthly reports posted?
The monthly horoscopes are always posted by
the 1st of the month and are accessible by clicking

delays the forecasts, we will notify you at the top of the
message board page. Please refrain from continually asking
when they might be posted.
