AstrologyAnswers.Com Review- Is AstrologyAnswers A Psychic Scam?
Great Horoscopes, Poor Readings
When I discovered AstrologyAnswers.com several years ago, they had a woman named “Katherine” as their founder. Unfortunately, Katherine was not a real person and it didn’t take long for people figured that out. Being found out like that caused the company to change things up a bit.
They decided to promote a man named Adrian Duncan as their founder instead. Duncan was featured throughout the website and was even the star of the introductory video they used to have. Duncan is a legitimate and skilled astrologer so I can see why they partnered with him.
He has written astrology books and even ran a school for astrologers. That’s the good news. The bad news is that only his name was being used on AstrologyAnswers.com. He didn’t actually give readings and did not speak to customers.
The relationship between him and AstrologyAnswers.com was one where they paid him to sign his name on emails and readings that weren’t actually written by him. Someone unknown was creating those readings and making it seem like they were coming from a genuine astrologer.
While Duncan is still mentioned on the website as part of the team, they don’t mention him as much anymore.
AstrologyAnswers.com is definitely crafty. They’re very good at creating specific illusions that they want potential customers to believe. That being said, their daily horoscope section does have genuine content. They even have legitimate astrologers such as Debra Silverman and Terence Guardino publish weekly videos for them.
Silverman and Guardiano are skilled astrologers and the information they give is real. Adding this element of “realness” helps AstrologyAnswers seem true and genuine. This gives people false hope and makes them more likely to purchase readings from them.
The problem here is that while Duncan, Silverman, and Guardino are all highly skilled astrologers, you can’t actually get a reading from any of them on the website! They don’t give readings for AstrologyAnswers because they have their own personal businesses they manage. They just work in conjunction with the website to lend their name and persona and get paid for that.
When you go to get a reading from the website, you will have to choose between other readers who we know nothing about and whose abilities are unknown. You can definitely forget about getting a reading from Adrian Duncan, only his name is being used by AstrologyAnswers.
You can’t even get readings or speak to their “Master Astrologer” Dawn Anne. She is all over the website and the one who sends the emails but forget trying to consult her.
Why I’m Suspicious
When you first land on AstrologyAnswers website, you will find your daily horoscope and some articles related to astrology and horoscopes. The articles are pretty basic and don’t offer a whole lot of valuable life advice, in my opinion.
Unfortunately, the horoscopes are the only good thing about the company. If you’re simply looking to read your daily horoscope, definitely check them out. But if you’re looking for true and honest psychic readings, I would look elsewhere. Consider any of the tested and verified psychic networks on my reviews page for legitimate consultations.
The reason I say this is because their “free” reading is just the beginning of a slew of generic readings you’ll receive if you sign up for them. In order to sign up for this introductory reading, you’ll have to give New Peak Media a lot of personal information. This includes but is not limited to, your date of birth, birthplace, marital status, employment status, gender, etc.
After giving them this information, you just have to sit back and wait for the onslaught of emails you’ll be receiving. I signed up to AstrologyAnswers on 02/14/20 and received thirty-eight emails from them from that date to today. THIRTY-EIGHT emails in the span of one and a half months! That’s almost daily.
They, or I guess I should say Dawn Anne, would only take a break every now and then from emailing me. The rate at which they send these emails tells me that they’re probably not even from Dawn Anne or a real person at all. I truly believe that they are just computer generated emails that they send to everyone at the same time.
All of the readings have been so pushy and overly aggressive. They tell me that I need to see “where I went wrong,” that I’m about to miss my chance for a better life, that I am missing out on a “fantastic” life opportunity, etc.
When I finally decided to pay for a reading, I thought I’d do a little experiment that I like to do when I suspect I’m being scammed. I signed up with a different name and email address and, not surprisingly, both readings were almost identical except for the name and date of birth!
I had the choice of paying $67 once, or $87 if I paid in three installments of $29. Since the readings are computer-generated, I got the readings within a few minutes of paying which is another tell-tell sign that nothing about the company is genuine.
It has also been brought to my attention that AstrologyAnswers.com is associated with an astrologer named Norah from PremiumAstrologer.com. While I don’t personally know anything about her, I have heard a lot of negative things about her. I will do my own research on her soon but I just thought I’d bring it up quickly. She has a pretty bad reputation for being a fake and a scammer.
I think that AstrologyAnswers.com realized that Norah is a bad name to be associated with so they tried to remove her name and all traces of her from their company. You will no longer find the name Norah anywhere on the AstrologyAnswers site, but a previous user was able to capture a screenshot showing both names together on a reading request form.
There is no denying that the two are currently or were at one point in business together. Considering the numerous claims that Norah is a psychic scam, the fact that AstrologyAnswers.com is affiliated with her raises red flags for me.
Shared Negative Experiences
I did some online research to see how others felt about this company. I discovered that I wasn’t the only one who feels like they are a scam. So many people stated that they were sent readings for the wrong astrological site despite having given them their birthdate.
There were also a lot of complaints of people having their credit card charged for more than what was agreed. A lot of people were mad because they prepaid for a monthly reading package and never received anything.
Lots of people complained about the generic content of the readings. They felt like the readings they received were so general and could apply to anyone. Every reading comes with an upsell towards the end and that’s incredibly annoying as well.
They claim to offer a 60-day refund policy if you’re not satisfied with the services. This is a generous timeframe but several users stated that they never got a refund despite their request. I haven’t personally tried to get a refund so I can’t confirm one way or another but it was a common complaint.
If you do decide to get a reading or pay AstrologyAnswers for any of their services, please keep these tips in mind:
- Use a prepaid or one-time use credit card so that they cannot pull any money without your authorization.
- Keep in mind that no astrologer, no matter how talented, can possibly generate and read your birth chart/transits in five minutes or less. If you’re answers are being sent this quickly then it is almost surely computer generated.
I really have to hand it to AstrologyAnswers.com for the revamping of their website. They have all new astrologers listed and the site itself is very colorful and user friendly. Their horoscopes are top-notch and I would not hesitate to check those out regularly.
I just can’t get behind the fact that they use the names of talented astrologers to make it seem as if they work with them when they actually don’t. I don’t like being fooled into thinking I might possibly be able to speak to one of them or that they are the ones working on my birth chart.
I also don’t like that I receive computer generated emails from them almost daily with attention-grabbing headlines. This is a huge red flag that makes me never want to pay them again for anything. The final straw is knowing that when I do get a reading, it’s super generic and the same thing is sent to everyone else.
I like being able to call or chat with a psychic and discussing things intimately with them versus reading what they think about me without ever having spoken to them. Genuine psychics won’t try to reach out to you every day because they are too busy actually reading for clients who reach out to them.
If they are truly talented then they won’t be sitting around with extra time trying to scare people into paying for readings. They know that curses and spells aren’t real and that your future isn’t set in stone. You have the power to change it at any point in time due to free will. They don’t pretend to know exactly what will happen to you and when it will happen.
They are simply there to guide you into doing what is best for you by using their gifts and abilities. They can help you dig deep within yourself to see what it is you desire and what kind of future you want for yourself. Once that has been established, they can advise you on the best way to get there. They also teach you how to eliminate the obstacles that stand in your way.
