Every year I write 300+ daily horoscopes, prayers, and astrological updates to thousands of readers all over the world, and each year for the last forty days of the calendar year I enter into meditation, prayer, and personal centering for another year of astrological writing. During these last forty days of the year I also raise money from my readers in order to support my daily horoscopes, my donation-based classrooms and speaker series, and the general donation-based work of Sky House Yoga, which my wife and I own and operate together day in and day out.
The basic goal of my kickstarter is to support myself at $50 per day of writing for the year ahead, which breaks down to 2 paid hours at $25 per hour for the time it takes me each morning to write my horoscopes (which is often well over two hours). This is a total fundraising goal of $15,000.
When you support my daily horoscopes, you can choose from a variety of different thank-you readings I will make for you myself!
My morning routine with my horoscope writing is mostly the same all year round. I rise early before the Sun and I meditate, pray, and practice yoga, before sitting down to write my daily horoscopes. It's a labor of love and it's also a deeply fulfilling spiritual practice. The stars offer us so much, and I am so blessed to communicate their guidance every day. However, it is not something I can do without the love and support of my readers, and so each year I ask for your financial help!
In addition to supporting myself in the writing of these daily horoscopes, if we surpass our basic goal, then we have some of the following stretch goals!
Why is a daily horoscope important?
* Daily horoscopes provide us with spiritual guidance each day, just as the planets continue to move and speak to us through their archetypal patterns, each day!
* At this time in history we are facing a major spiritual crisis, astrology helps us to see the fingerprints of the divine even within the midst of these dark and troubling times
* My daily horoscopes are a reminder to pray and offer our life up to the divine, each and every day
* Daily horoscopes are a subtle reminder that we have to remember the larger picture, as a practice, in devotion, all the time or we can easily lose ourselves
* Daily horoscopes are a way to laugh and take joy in the miracles, the patterns, and the surprises of our day to day lives
* Daily horoscopes create community
* Daily horoscopes join us together in a story bigger than ourselves and our individual hurts, pains, victories and losses
* Daily horoscopes remind us that our lives are sacred, every, single, last, experience!!
Thank you for supporting me. It will be my blessing and honor to write for you again in 2018!
Blessings & Peace,
and Ashley Elenbaas and the Whole Sky House Yoga and Nightlight Student Community!
Risks and challenges
The risk is the same as every other year. I know that I will continue to provide these horoscopes for others regardless of whether or not I meet my goal. This is an act of faith and trust, without attachment to the results. This is a time for me to double down on my commitment to this first and foremost as a spiritual practice and as a way to further the astrological and yogic traditions in this country, and abroad, for generations to come.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
