AstroloMe.com was created to personalize astrology for those looking for a more specific daily horoscope. It offers a full event list for the stars in a user’s chart, allowing them to be self-aware of their astrological status before making decisions. It uses date, time, and place of birth and forecasts in real time. The astrological events may then be shared via social media.Show more screenshots »
The application was founded in April of 2010 by Lior Rotshenker, Ron Bentata, and Maor Efrati. No traffic information is available for the site. The app is offered as both an iPhone app and a website, with planned Android and Microsoft Mobile apps for the future. It is currently in beta.
AstroloMe is a personally calculated horoscope as opposed to the general ones listed on other sites or in magazines. Their data is based on date and location of birth. It is very detailed in all aspects of the user’s life.
Once registered, the user may begin with the Daily Personal Forecast. This lists personal calculated astrological influences for the day. It lists Friends & Family Horoscope Influences, Love & Relationship, Money/Career/Work, and Self Influences. Each influence is accompanied by when the influence will be rising and how long it will last. Example: Money, Career, Work Horoscope Influences: You can start to make your ambitions reality Starting at: 01:48 AM, for 4 weeks You can start to make your ambitions reality. Physical energy and courage are high and you can accomplish more than usual, both personally and in business. But keep others in mind - your fiery independence may make you less sensitive than normal. If you have any excess energy, sport can be a healthy release for it.

Also in this section is the comparison of each area and whether it has become more positive or negative.
The all events tab leads to a specific page for each of the influences and asks users to click “yeah” if this is true for them. There is an area for comments and a list of celebrities who are also experiencing similar energies. Clicking on the celebrity shows a chart where a user’s events may coincide with the celebrity. It lists the number of challenges and advantages they will face.
The Profile tab indicates site usage (how many “yeahs” and comments have been posted) as well as the number of events broken down into challenges and advantages that the user will face on that day. During review, it appeared that the user would be experiencing 20 Events, 9 Challenges and 11 Advantages. The breakdown in a bar graph was: 3 personal challenges with 1 advantage; 2 love challenges with 3 advantages; 1 family advantage; 4 work advantages; 4 general challenges and 2 general advantages. It also provides a birth chart with the planets, signs, and degrees. Without background in astrology, this may be confusing.
The app can be a bit overwhelming and the information is repeated in the Daily Personal Forecast and the All Events sections.
Interestingly, when viewing the settings tab, a time of birth (12am) had been entered and the birth city had been changed to London, ENG. Attempts to change the birthplace to a small town continued to be replaced by London. Further attempts revealed that only big cities are recognized. When changed to New York City, the forecast did change, to a limited extent, adding two events: 1 more family advantage and 1 work disadvantage. The detailed Daily Forecast was quite different. It is obviously very important to check settings before viewing a user’s forecast.
Registration may be performed by linking with Facebook, which requires approval for the app to access a user’s personal information. Individual registration requires first and last name, gender, an image, date of birth, time of birth, location, email, password, and preference for daily forecast. ALL fields are supposedly required, which may be difficult for the time of birth question. Older birth certificates do not list this information. During review, no time was entered and the account was created without issue.
There are no fees with AstroloMe at this time.
People interested in astrology and horoscopes will undoubtedly be excited to see an application that personalizes their horoscope.
