UPDATE!!! We are now just 6 backers away from our final stretch goal of $40,000 raised and 300 backers supporting our project! Help us finish strong!!

Note: After the recent and tragic death of our beloved herbal and yoga colleague, Tricia McCauley, we will be dedicating the community/teacher herbal garden (which was our first stretch goal this year) to her with a special plaque on a bench in the garden. Tricia was one of our inspirations for building the garden and it's with great saddness that we mourn her passing...


Hi, my name is Adam Elenbaas, and I'm a professional astrologer. I write daily horoscopes that I share through multiple social media platforms with many thousands of readers all over the world, and I am raising money to support my free daily horoscopes in 2017.

 The basic intention of my daily horoscopes are to provide people with a basic planetary forecast for the day ahead, as well as a deeper set of reflections, meditations, and prayers to take into that day for the sake of personal growth, healing, and guidance.

It's my goal to raise $7500 over the next 40 days to support myself at $25 per day. Beyond this, I have three possible stretch goals. The first is to raise enough funds to support my daily horoscopes at $50 per day. The next is $75 per day, and the last would be $100 per day. 

Each day it takes me about 2 hours to write, post, and distribute my horoscopes online. Additionally, because my readership has grown so large over the past several years, I receive many emails each day from people sharing deeply personal responses to my horoscopes. I have averaged an additional 2 hours per day in the past year fielding and responding sensitively to my readers and hope to continue being able to take this important time to interact with my readers. Because my daily horoscopes and the work related to them cover 3-4 hours of my day, each day of the year, it's my sincere hope to meet all of my stretch goals and support this work at $100 per day.

My simple request is that if you're one of the many people who read my horoscopes each day, or if you read one or two a week or even just one or two a month or year, please contribute to this fundraiser and help support my work in 2017. Check out the rewards and please give whatever you can. You'll find a list of generous rewards for your contributions!

And if you can't afford to contribute, then please contribute by sending me good thoughts and prayers for the work to come! Over the next 40 days of fundraising, I will be in daily prayer for guidance and support for this project.

A big thank you to Garden House Films and Lily Alayne Owen for her fantastic work on my kickstarter promo video this year! You can check out her work here: https://vimeo.com/gardenhousefilms

Risks and challenges

The risk I take is the same each year. I know in my heart that this is work I will continue to offer generously, for free, to the public, even if my readers do not support me. Though I am asking for support, writing these horoscopes is something I started from a place of daily prayer and in the spirit of a sincere and free offering. However, because my horoscopes take between 2-4 hours daily, it's important that I try to earn as much as I can to support myself. Astrology is a hard profession to make a good living at, and I rely on my readers to be my patrons! For the past few years you have delivered and helped me so much, and for this I am eternally grateful as I approach you and ask for your help again in 2017!
