So Long, Michelle

4 years writing for one website (that’s not even your own) is a long time in internet years. And unfortunately for us, Michelle Suzanne will no longer being writing her weekly forecast or recording her weekly podcast for Sasstrology, as of right before Christmas.

I’m sad to see her go—when I was looking for a weekly horoscope writer back in 2008, Michelle’s “voice” resonated more with me than anyone other potential contributor. I appreciate Michelle’s weekly devotion to interpreting the movement in the heavens to our readers, and especially for the time we spent together recording our podcast. We’ve met in person only once, but I feel we’ll always be friends.

What’s Next?

That’s a good question. Sasstrology is six years old, and it’s gone through many transitions. (Does anybody remember a forum? I’m trying to forget.)

We will continue to feature the writing of Nadia Gilchrist. She’s plugging away on her weekly series on Sun-Moon compatibility, and she’ll keep writing feature articles on Sex & Relationship Astrology. And we’ve still got daily horoscopes by Kelli Fox, The Astrologer, and monthly horoscopes by Eric Francis of Planet Waves.

But what, dear reader, are you craving? So many websites publish a weekly forecast, so without Michelle around, do you want us to find a new writer, or should we devote our resources to publishing more unique content?

Comments

  1. More unique content, please, maybe around “evolutionary astrology” in the context of the sex and relationship focus of the site.. Nadia (and you) have touched on this and I’d like to see lots more.

  2. A lot of sites may have weeklies, but michelle’s were always my favorite: sad to see this feature go.

  3. I am really sad to hear that Michelle is leaving! The way that I even found out about Sasstrology was the podcasts from iTunes back when both you (Jeff) and Michelle were doing them together- which was a great weekly treat. I feel that it is necessary to a) keep the weekly horoscope forecast and b) continue with podcasts but maybe this time with another person? I loved having two people do the podcast at the same time.

    Although Sasstrology may have undergone alot of changes this is a great Astrological Resource online and some of the best information regarding love, live and relationships through the lense of astrology can be found here. You are appreciated and I come to your site on weekly basis. Keep up the good work!

  4. Hey, I remember the forums.. grrr. I will definitely miss Michelle’s podcast and just the discontinuation of it, period! I really liked the style format in which she did it. No space music in the background and no meditation feel to it was awesome compared to what else I’ve listened to. Only podcast I would sit and listen through the whole thing.

    From your question, I think weekly forecasts are too different amongst the websites. I actually rely and love Eric Frances’ monthly horoscopes. Maybe it’s the wording, idk. But, I would like to see more in-depth astrological variety i.e. progressive charts, retrograde planets in the natal chart, etc.

    I will definitely miss Michelle. Such a knowledgeable, grounded woman. You did awesome, sweetheart! Best of luck in all your endeavors!

  5. Shame! She really made the podcasts her own. Good luck Michelle in the future X

  6. AC, there is a zero percent likelihood that I will continue with the podcast. When I started I only wanted to record it with Michelle, and she was kind enough to continue on her own after I dropped out to focus on other things. I’m glad that you found Sasstrology and I hope to keep up the good work in other ways.

  7. Dear Ag, AC, CB and no-perspiration,

    Your kind comments touch me, and remind me why I have been blessed to be part of the Sass family. I will definitely miss writing and podcasting here. I also know that whatever newness comes along, it’s going to be fabulous. I remain a fervent fan here!

  8. Oh. My. God. Michelle.. Noooooo!! This is soooo sad…. I was soooo sad when you left Jeffrey now this is another bummer.. I can’t tell you how much the weekly podcasts mean to me… In asking what we’d like to see I’d respond with the podcast! But I see your comment that there is no way it can continue *sniff* those podcasts were like weekly therapy for me ha
    Good luck Michelle! We love you and thanks for everything xo

  9. Hi Pisces 314, I so wish I could carry on with the forecasts and the podcasts. I will truly miss connecting with our loyal readers and listeners. Sniffling here too. xo

  10. Hi! I just wanted to say I really loved listening to Michelle’s podcast. Love how it wasn’t just a sign by sign account and talked more generally about what was happening in the skies. So helpful and enjoyable to listen to every week. I would love for it to continue in a similar format!?!
