Susan Miller, World Famous Astrologer, Soon to Take Over Latin America
Susan Miller, astrologer to the stars, waltzed into the Fontainebleau on Friday night with some very bad news. Most of the 40 or so people in attendance for her annual Year Ahead lecture were Libras, and 2014 would mark the most trying period of their lives.
via Twitter @AstrologyZone Susan Miller is probably the most famous astrologer in the world.
"Reach over to the Libra next to you and give them a hug or a kiss," she implored her adoring audience members, who had paid $49 for the privilege of insight into the aspects. (Many would also tack on an additional $99 for an exclusive dinner party, $89 for a lunch, and $109 for a spa treatment.)
Although the super-famous scribe lives in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, she comes to Miami every year to celebrate the anniversary of her website, AstrologyZone.com, which turned 18 this weekend. On AZ, Miller gives away 48,000 words for free every month, or about 2,500 per zodiac sign. She's just as prolific on her Twitter account.
Moreover, she's hugely influential in the publishing and fashion industries, writing for Elle, Vogue and a host of other fashion magazines in Korea, Turkey, Brazil, Italy, Spain, Russia and Hong Kong.
Miller announced that the site would be translated into Spanish on December 2nd, a new moon. This means her brand of thinking -- which focuses a lot on the outer planets, she says -- will soon penetrate Latin America.
During the lecture, Miller broke down each of the signs, telling them what catastrophes and triumphs they are most primed for. She also offered a bit of political prediction as well. (Obamacare's website will start working by the end of the month, because Mercury will move out of retrograde.) Although Miller thinks some professional astrologers make up their predictions, she says hers horoscopes are based on math and can be verified.
"No astrologer believes in astrology before they study it," Miller told Riptide. Miller's mom, a Gemini with big blue eyes and chestnut hair, made her study the ancient belief system for 12 years before practicing it at all. Her dad, a street smart Scorpio, owned an Italian specialty grocery store in New York.
