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.

Aries Horoscope for December 2013
By Susan Miller
It is holiday time, and you will have so much to do, so many people to see! December will be a month that will require careful planning, for difficult days will be rolling in the last week. You will need to take your most important actions early on and be careful not to cut your timing short, for you may simply run out of time. As you get later in the month, there will be many distractions and unplanned interruptions to your schedule, so do what is most important to you first.
The new moon, December 2 in Sagittarius, 11 degrees, will be just your cup of tea. All new moons open a door, and this one, in fellow fire sign Sagittarius, will be especially generous and expansive. This new moon stands as one of the best new moons of the year for you, and considering how arduous your life has been lately, this has to be exciting news!
This new moon will allow you to travel quite far, abroad or to a beautiful island, or to stay within your own country and fly to a distant city. The ninth house, where this new moon will fall, has the job of stimulating your mind and invigorating your spirit. You've had too much routine, so it appears you could use a large sprinkling of excitement in early December by traveling to a new, beautiful setting.
A large emphasis will be on international matters too. If you need to work on an immigration matter, such as one involving a green card, visa, or a passport, things will go exceedingly well. If you have an import-export business where you trade goods, services, or information, you will find opportunities that you uncover will sparkle like diamonds in the Sun. If you are a writer, you may find that your book will be translated into other languages this month, an exciting prospect. These are a few examples, so consider how to use this wonderful energy in your life.
The area where this new moon will appear, the ninth house, is where we take information in, such as in college through study. If you are involved in earning a university degree and, for example, plan to take important qualifying exams during the first three weeks, you will likely do well - the new moon of December 2 will support your efforts. If you are scheduled to defend your thesis in early December, the same is true. This is your time to shine.
If you are not a student but rather a professor or teaching instructor at an institution of higher learning, the same house is where we give information out. You would benefit from opportunities to increase your visibility and power. (To be clear, this house is all about college, not high school or lower education, as those institutions would come under the third house and would not be relevant here.)
Broadcasting and publishing ventures will shine for you too, as these industries will get a big boost at the new moon. If you work in these fields, you may get a new assignment that might require you to travel, near or far.
Additionally, because this area of the chart encourages debate, the legal system and the courts also fall in this house. It would be an ideal time to bring a legal matter to court. Alternatively, you might offer a settlement that the other side may find agreeable. There are other ways you can use this favor from the courts, say, by filing a patent or trademark, and the results would be a jewel in your crown.
I am very enthusiastic about this new moon for you, for one big reason. Uranus will send a magnificently harmonious beam to that new moon, so things should go unexpectedly well for you - quite suddenly. You will need to be agile enough to swing into action when the pace picks up. Neptune will be slightly adverse to the new moon, which underscores your need to remain objective and realistic and not agree to terms too quickly. Feel free to ask a number of probing questions to be sure you and others are all on the same page.
If your birthday falls on March 31, plus or minus five days, you will benefit from that new moon, December 2, and from events that follow in the ten days that follow it. If you have a natal planet in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, and to slightly lesser affect, Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at 11 degrees (or within five degrees), you will feel the energy of this new moon the most - more than your friends who are Aries too, but were born at different times of the month. You will need to do your part by initiating actions as soon as it arrives. This will be a rare time to launch something new, whether in your personal or professional life.
Mars will enter Libra on December 7 and bring on a long new trend. Libra is the sign opposite yours on the horoscope wheel. Libra's time is at the end of September and first three weeks of October, six months away from your birthday. Mars in Libra will focus you on one partner in particular, or on collaborative efforts in which you are involved in general. Mars typically stays in a sign for six weeks, but will, remarkably, remain in Libra for nearly eight months, until July 25, 2014. The themes you will see arise now, shortly after December 7, will be with you for months.
Mars is your guardian planet, dear Aries, so this phase will affect you in a more direct way than it will other signs. With Mars opposite your sign (or your rising sign) you won't have total control over all the events. You will have to defer to others, and although this is a long trend, it is a temporary one. There is no need to be concerned. You can find qualified people who can add expertise and assistance to you, and the sum of their energies when added to yours could easily be greater than the sum of the parts. It may occur to you that you can't do everything alone, and that sometimes it is comforting to have others' help and input.
Aries likes to be in charge, so the new "twosome" emphasis may require an adjustment at first. To cheer you up, I point out that there is no law that says you have to be 50-50 in any formal business partnership. As an example, you can control 70 percent of a business venture, and your partner, 30 percent. This works if the idea was yours, or if you bring more to the table than your collaborator. No matter what the split you agree upon, you are partners.
You might think of the opportunities that Mars' emphasis might bring to the surface, and work with this trend rather than against it. (For Aries, the idea of sharing control almost always creates a "no" as a knee-jerk reaction.) Let's look at some examples. If you are out of work, consider presenting your skills along with that of another person who can complement what you do. This happens frequently in the advertising business. For example, if you are a superb copywriter, you might want to combine your skills with a top art director and offer your skills as a unit to interested businesses.
Here is another idea. If you are a writer who would like to self-publish a book, say, in Japan, partner with a translator you have vetted. My idea here is to come in as a package. By working this way, you would be working with Mars in Libra energy. You may find that clients prefer to work with the individuals who will be doing the actual work (you and your partner), rather than contract a big firm and cross their fingers that someone as talented as you and your partner would be assigned to their account. Usually small businesses are always worried about firms paying the closest attention to their big clients and overlooking the smaller ones. You can solve that fear.
In terms of this Mars in Libra energy, you may also - or alternatively - be planning a wedding in the coming months. If you have not chosen your day yet, I suggest you plan your wedding for the second half of July, eight months from now. The time near July 19-20 would be ideal. In this manifestation of Mars in Libra, you would consult your partner's opinion frequently to make sure he or she is happy with arrangements.
If you were hoping to get engaged this month, then do so in EARLY December, not in late month or in January. Here is why: On December 21, Venus will retrograde from December 21 to January 31. When the planet of love and beauty retrogrades, all the areas that Venus rules suffer and become weak. Venus needs to be awake, alive, and very strong to be helpful to you when contemplating such a big step!
If you were planning to get engaged for Christmas or New Year's Eve, you need to change the plan slightly. Venus will settle down for her nap on December 21. My advice is to have your engagement earlier this month, no later than the full moon, December 17. You should not schedule important events too close to December 21, so the earlier the better. Once you get engaged, you can always keep that fact a secret between the two of you for several weeks, and then announce your engagement to friends and family at holiday time. I love this idea!
Hosting Mars opposed to your Sun can be trying at times. A partner can be cranky or demanding, and that can make you tense too. This is not necessarily how Mars in Libra will affect you over the coming eight months, but I feel I should let you know this could happen. Mars will coax you to see the differences you share, not only the similarities. Giving you a full picture of your partner will be Mars' aim. If you are in a bitter divorce battle, things may ratchet up another notch. Knowing that things can get harder in time, you may try to settle things sooner rather than later if it is feasible.
If you have a volatile relationship, be careful not to rile your partner. You may have to tiptoe around certain hot topics now and only bring up the subject when your partner is not in a pressured state. If your partner can become violent, that's another story, for in that case, you would be wise to remove yourself from this relationship. Mars will show up any weak links that might exist in any relationship to protect you. In the latter case, it will be up to you to see the handwriting on the wall and heed the message to leave.
If you are not thinking about a wedding, but rather, thinking about forming a serious business partnership or collaboration, do so early in December. Venus was always depicted in ancient literature holding her silk purse that held her gold coins, the reason Venus is also associated with profit. Although Jupiter and Pluto are more closely associated with big financial dealings than Venus, Venus has some influence in this area too. I would not want you to cap your future profits by signing your deal while Venus is out of phase.
Venus also rules beauty and good looks, so it is very important not to schedule plastic surgery at the end of December. Do not ask your stylist for radical changes to your hair from December 21 to January 31 either. Of course, it's fine to go forward with trims and other routine grooming, but it's not a good idea if you are a woman to do something dramatic, like cut all your hair very short or completely change its color. If you are one of my many male readers, you may want to wait to shave off the beard you've worn for years. Venus retrograde is a no-frills time, where fun, beauty, and love take a back seat to more serious work-related tasks. By the end of January, however, you'll be through this phase, ready to start a whole new chapter in your life.
A reader on Twitter wrote to me (@AstrologyZone) and asked, is Venus retrograde as important as a big planet, like Jupiter retrograde? I find that both planets are important, but I find the personal planets that orbit close to earth to be more important when retrograde than the big outer planes. With eight planets having very individual orbits, you can't always get two planets, like Jupiter and Venus, moving direct at the same time. Focus on Venus (and Mercury or Mars) in coming months. For you, in terms of love and business, I say, act in early December so that you will not tangle with Venus retrograde.
To be clear, the smaller personal planets - Venus, Mercury, Mars - when retrograde have a larger, more direct effect than the big "outer" planets like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto would do in day-to-day living. The big planets retrograde for four months or five months at a time, another reason we cannot stop to wait for all these planets to regulate.
Having said this, it is wise to watch what your ruling (guardian) planet is doing, and I will always tell you when that happens. For example, Jupiter went retrograde November 7 and won't regulate its orbit to direct speed until March 6, 2014. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, so when Jupiter retrogrades, Sagittarius (or those with Sagittarius rising) will feel that retrograde more directly than most. As an Aries, Mars rules you, so when Mars will retrograde, as it will from March 1 to May 19, you will feel this more than other signs and will likely find you will have to work harder to get projects approved and launched.
While we are on the subject of retrograde planets, this month, Uranus, planet of surprise and unexpected events, will go direct and become stronger on the same day as the full moon, December 17. This will affect you quite a bit because since March 2011, Uranus has been in Aries. Uranus will continue to be in Aries until March 2019, and once Uranus leaves to go to Taurus, Uranus will never return to Aries again during your lifetime. That is because it takes Uranus 84 years to circle the Sun and rotate through all 12 signs. Its orbit is very slow. Uranus is now making this the most innovative, creative period in your life, dear Aries.
Watch the two days that circle December 17 (before and after) for exciting news from Uranus that will be very important to you. What you hear in one of those days will give you a clue of what's to come. A friend may be very instrumental in your luck.
I mentioned the full moon of December 17 earlier, but I now want to tell you more. (Ironically it is the same day that Uranus goes direct, mentioned above.)
This full moon will be in Gemini, 25 degrees, and will be in elegant angle to Neptune. It will light your house of communication, so projects that you are doing in that area will do well. For example, it would be a great time to unveil a new website or logo. You may see the results of an advertising or publicity campaign, or find you will have an unusual number of news pour into your office, with email, phone calls, messengered packages, and other communications you will need to respond to quickly before the coming holidays.
Full moons bring lots of energy, and they also bring closure, so if you were negotiating a contract, you may be ready to sign at this time. (Of course, ask your lawyer first if it is okay to sign.) Gemini is also associated with siblings and cousins, so you may hear positive news that involves your sister, brother, or close cousin, or you may be cooking up something special together.
This full moon of December 17 in air sign Gemini will get along well with your fire sign element, for the air element will help you become more vibrant. If you were born on April 14 plus or minus five days, you will benefit the most from this full moon.
Now we come to the end of December, and that period will bring some thunderous rumblings of major planets very close to the holidays. This is very hard for me to say, as I love the year-end holidays, for it marks one of the most peaceful times of the year. I love the spirit of giving and generosity that pervades the world at this time. It marks a time when we all say thank you to those who have been good to us, and at this time, we seem to rise above the more mundane cares of life. This year, that peacefulness may be disturbed.
On December 24-25, Uranus will directly oppose Mars to precise mathematical degree, causing either an angry emotional outburst or physical mishap. First, make safety a priority to stop any preventable accidents. Watch for black ice or for things that someone may slip over in hallways or walkways. Extinguish a candle when you leave a room. It is common to drink alcohol at holiday time, but on these days, a drink could make you say something you regret later, adding to the pandemonium. If you will drive, drinking, even a little, would be a very strong no-no.
The person you will most likely have a disagreement with will be your romantic partner, present mate, ex-partner, or soon-to-be ex. I say this only if you do have a disagreement, and let's hope you do not. Tensions will be very high, and again, I am very sorry to say this news. Do everything you can to keep things calm. You won't see the dispute coming, as Uranus, the planet known to create completely unanticipated events, will be involved. Aries born on or within a week of March 29 will have the hardest time with this aspect.
The last week of December will become even tenser. On December 29, Mercury and Uranus will be at 90-degree odds, jangling everyone's nerves, and making travel treacherous. Check weather reports before heading out, and take no back roads - stay on the highway in the unlikely case you might need road assistance.
On December 30, the Sun will be at odds with Uranus AND on the same day Mars and Pluto will be at hard angles too. What a hot-potato day! Someone may be demanding or pushy toward you, and strong-arming you to do as he or she says. It appears this person will most likely be a male and will not be open to reason. I cannot be 100 percent certain that this will manifest, but I can say you must try to keep the boat from rocking. It will seem as though no one will listen to reason, and if an event does occur, it will come up unexpectedly. You will need to be the adult in the room, stay gracious, and as hard as it may be, do not be provoked.
The bad mood of the planets continues straight up to New Year's Eve when Mercury will conjoin Pluto and both will be at odds with Mars. This is another aspect that will make you feel like you've walked over broken glass. I feel you should celebrate at home and perhaps offer a small number of guests a festive dinner that you whipped up.
If possible, keep guests close to you. Buy air mattresses and have your guests sleep over in the living room or library that evening, to keep them safe and sound. This New Year's Eve has difficult aspects, so it will not be worth spending a great deal of money that evening. Were you thinking of flying to Paris? Do so for Valentine's Day instead. Even though Mercury will be retrograde in February on Valentine's Day, any aspect will be calmer and better than what will roll through from December 25 to 31. At that time, do not rattle anyone's cage - a tiger would come out.
The following day will be a difficult new moon, January 1. We need to all get through the gyrations of the end of December - afterward a rainbow will appear, so take a deep breath, and keep your faculties about you.
December is a month divided in two, with the best part coming early on. The month starts off with a solid new moon, in Sagittarius, December 2, that may encourage you to travel far and wide. Sagittarius is a fellow fire sign like yours, so it will support your decisions and actions. Uranus will be friendly to this new moon, indicating that you may need to pack your bags and go at a moment's notice - always a thrilling prospect to an Aries.
Sagittarius is a global, international sign, so you may need to fly to a city quite far from yours. You'd be wise to go in the first half of December, for best luck, when you are likely to be at your most productive.
If you are enrolled in a university, or are a professor, or if you work in the media as a journalist or producer, positive news about your career should reach you this month too. Again, this would likely happen in the first two weeks, and the development would be unexpected. If asked to do a story for print, Internet, or TV, there's a strong chance the topic would focus on a matter that is taking place on foreign shores or, in another manifestation, that would be of interest to a worldwide audience. Alternatively, your story may focus on a sporting competition.
Mars, your ruler, will enter Libra on December 7 and will herald a long and important theme that centers on a partner, and that will extend months, until July 25. You will be collaborating more with others, whether with a collaborator or teammate at work, or with your romantic partner. If your romantic partner is your focus, it may be because you are both going though massive lifestyle changes and need to work as a team to make your dream a reality. You may become engaged or married, buy or lease an apartment, or plan for a baby, as a few examples.
Aries generally prefers to be at the helm, and is generally less comfortable in the role of collaborator or partner. In coming months, you will need to become skilled at the give-and-take of a partnership. Think back to early October when you experienced a new moon in Libra just after October 4. Recalling events that occurred at any time in October might give you hints of what's to come. The plan you drew up or began to focus on then may now be ready to be advanced to a new stage.
Uranus will go direct in Aries on December 17, having been out of phase for months, since July 17. Now that Uranus is stronger, your social life will pick up, and many of your dearest goals will get a push forward. Watch the days that surround December 17 for good news.
Mars will directly oppose Uranus on December 24-25, creating a potentially touchy time where you may not see eye-to-eye with your romantic or business partner. An aspect like this can incite angry outbursts, so choose your words carefully. You may rush or be impulsive - don't. This aspect does not always manifest in an emotional way, but rather a physical way. Protect against falls and make sure your home wiring is adequate for your needs. Never leave a room with a candle burning.
The following week brings a box of firecrackers, December 29 to 31, and an angry new moon January 1. Keep celebrations intimate, calm, and private. Until cosmic storms pass, it's best to keep all things on a small scale.
Dates to Note: Aries
Most romantic dates (These are dates you can use for other things too for they favor you): December 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 15, 16, and 20.
You may travel soon after the new moon December 2 arrives, and if you do in the two weeks that follow, sweet surprises and experiences await you.
On December 7, Mars goes into Libra, to stay until July 25, 2014 - you will be in collaboration mode during that time.
Good news may arrive on December 10 when Mercury trine Uranus. It is also a great day to travel, give a speech, or send your report.
On December 12, Jupiter trine Saturn a wonderfully stabilizing day - home and real estate matters will bring great, stabilizing news.
The full moon in Gemini on December 17 may bring on another trip. This one would be short in distance. As a separate matter, check in with your sister or brother within four days of this full moon too, for news.
Watch the days that surround December 9, when Uranus will go direct in Aries after being retrograde since July 17. If you watch closely, you will see something dear to you show signs of progress.
Duty, not fun, rules the days from December 21 when Venus will be retrograde to January 31, 2014. Avoid plastic surgery and radical changes to your appearance. Delay engagement - do so prior to December 21.
On December 24-25 Mars will opposite Uranus, and those around you will have a short fuse. Try to remain calm, as this can be a very forceful and aggressive aspect emotionally or physically.
Travel could be treacherous on December 29 when Mercury will be at odds with Uranus. Check weather conditions before heading out.
On December 30 the Sun will square Uranus and Mars square Pluto, so again, people will be getting adverse news, and feelings will be very fragile.
The march of difficult planets will continue on December 31 when Mercury conjunct Pluto and Mercury square Mars. It will be all too easy to have a tiff with your partner today.

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.

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:
Bonus! Best gift for ANY sign, for under than $20!
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.
