AstrologyAnswers.com has been around the block for a while and was first associated to a founder called Katherine. It didn´t take too long that Katherine was found out as not a real person and the company needed to adjust their marketing to that. They then listed a real astrologer and psychic called Adrian Duncan as their founder and had Adrian speak to the audience in their intro video on the website.
Adrian Ross Duncan is a long-standing, respectable astrologer and it makes sense for an astrology website to link up with him. He build up a solid reputation for himself and has written books, had his own astrology school and is known for his expertise.
Unfortunately, AstrologyAnswers.com only had him sign the emails and appear as the face of the company, not giving readings himself. Though you can get readings at the website, Duncan would only sign them but not actually produce them.
Although initially they were promoting him a lot, he is not as much mentioned anymore.Their main face now is Dawn Anne, an astrologer with similar high quality reputation. However, Duncan still appears as part of the team on AstrologyAnswers.com.
The website also associates with other astrologers of name and fame, like Debra Silverman and Terence Guardino, who post videos for them every week. Both of them are highly respectable and accurate astrologers, who careg high amounts for their personal readings on their own websites. Which gives the AstrologyAnswers.Com an air of trustworthiness. However, that´s of course just a trick to lure people in to buy their readings, which are done by someone else.
You can´t purchase a reading with Debra, Adrian or Terence on their site though, since they all run their own businesses and their time is limited. What these astrologers do, is to work together with AstrologyAnswers.com to get payed for showcasing their name on their website, and therefore giving the website more credibility.
Even the master astrologer on the website called Dawn Anne can not be consulted. She is the new face of the place and signs the emails, but can not be booked for a reading.
While this might be the case for astrologers who are highly busy and only work with a select group of private clients, it still got us thinking when we were reviewing this website.
The website offers you a handful of daily horoscopes and articles related to astrology and spiritual insights regarding star signs. The articles are basic but informative. The horoscopes are actually pretty good and very accurate. If that´s what you are looking for, the website might give you some value.
However, the story turns around, when you want to receive further readings with them. You´ll then only get generic content that could be done for anyone. In order to receive those email readings, you need to sign-up first and inform them about your date of birth, birthplace, marital status, employment status and gender.
While some of the information requested is important for an astrologer to give you the exact reading on your planets, some of the information seems to be too much to ask for, since the astrologer should be able to detract that information from the reading. The marital status for example is not necessary in a reading. It is only necessary, if a media company wants to sell you relationship readings after finding out, if you are single or not.
Once they have your information, New Peak Media starts spamming you every day. You´ll receive a new email with new offers and content almost on the daily, which is impossible to come from a real astrologer. Who would have the time to send so many emails, if they´d be doing readings for their clients? It just confirms the suspicion that they only send out generic content, which is the same for everyone or at least for every star sign.
Like most of the media companies that operate a metaphysical, psychic or astrological business New Peak Media gets very aggressive when sending out their information, to push you to buy. Most of the tactics are questionable since the emails portray you a doomed future, if you don´t get help from them – asap.
To test their services further, we decided to pay for an actual reading, just with a different email. Both of them were exactly identical except of course for the name and the date of birth. The price was either $67 or three installments of $29. The reading then arrives in just a few minutes, which of course makes it obvious that there is no astrologer behind it, who is preparing them.
Red Flag: Negative Reviews
Another red flag we found out about is that the website is also offering services from an astrologer called Norah, who you can find on PremiumAstrologer.com. Her reviews are very bad and she has been known as a scam. That in comparison to the genuine astrologers they work with, doesn´t go well together.
The company seemingly noticed the discrepancy and tried to remove her name from all materials, but a reviewer posted a screenshot that clearly shows that Norah and AstrologyAnswers.com are associated to each other.
But that´s not the only thing. Next to the scam potential of Norah, a lot of users left negative reviews about the company AstrologyAnswers.com. They were complaining about having the wrong reading sent to them, being charged more than what they agreed upon, or having payed for monthly readings and never getting anything in return.
And the main complain of course, is that many clients simply got generic content, which gave them no real value whatsoever. In each reading there is a promotion for another reading, which gets too pushing over time. If you buy one reading, you don´t want to be sold another reading right away. Let it settle for a while.
Red flag: No refund policy
After all the negative comments we read, it should be clear that many people want a refund. Either because they never received a reading or their reading made no sense at all. The company claims to be offering a 60-day refund policy, but no one ever got a refund even if they requested it.
What to watch out for
After reading all this, we can not encourage you to get a reading with AstrologyAnswers.com. They are a scam. However, if you only read their daily or weekly horoscopes for free there is no harm in this as the free content is actually good.
The payed readings however, are of no use and have not changed anybodies life until today.
AstrologyAnswers.com is however presenting a slick website and listing all their astrologers on there. It´s very convincing and easy to navigate. And as we said before the free readings are great and convincing. Just the payed content is lacking severely, since it´s only automated emails.
It´s still a bit of a scam that they list well-known astrologers on their site, yet non of them is offering readings for you. We could let that slip, but it´s definitely a scam if you order a psychic reading and only receive a generic one that´s the same for everyone.
It´s also untrustworthy, if you order a reading and the content has nothing to do with your life and your current situation. After all astrology is proven and it works. So they could absolutely do better here!
If you are looking for a genuine astrologer, who can help you, do some research, read the reviews and only trust the sources that are trustworthy. You will find what you are looking for!
In our opinion, AstrologyAnswers.com is just another scam.
But check out their free readings, there might be something in there for you.
