Shopping in the AstroShop -
Step by Step

Shopping in the AstroShop is secure and straightforward. You will be led through the ordering process step by step. Take some time to read the instructions on the pages carefully. The little icons contain help texts for the respective elements.

Basically, the following steps are necessary for purchasing a horoscope:

  1. Choose your article in the AstroShop
  2. Enter birth data or select data from your list
  3. Enter your address
  4. Select a payment method
  5. Follow the payment process (for payment by credit card)

If you have purchased anything in the AstroShop before or if you have created a registered user profile for the Free Horoscopes, your data (address, birth data etc.) should still be stored on We do not store your full credit card information which is always forwarded directly to the bank which processes your request (Astrodienst only stores part of your credit card information in order to be able to identify the card in case any problems should arise). Sensitive data are transferred via secure connection (ssh). This procedure allows us to ensure maximum security.

If you wish to get an overview over the complete procedure before you start shopping, you may read the explanations below.

13. Complaints

  • Despite all the care we take, we do occasionally make mistakes, as do our customers. In such a case, please do not return the item in question (unless we ask you to do so). A data error can usually be tracked in our files. A computer error can be looked into using a copy of "datasheet" in the horoscope.
  • If the error has occurred during processing within our company, we will of course send you the corrected version free of charge. If the error can be traced to the person ordering, we will send a corrected version at 25% of the original price plus shipping costs.
  • Errors in telephone orders are accounted for by the customer, if the data given for the product are identical with those we have noted. If this is too high a risk for you, please order via internet, fax or mail.
  • A later cancellation of an order which has already been processed is not possible. Should you find that you have ordered something you don't want after all, we will not refund. Please do consult the sample texts and inform yourself before you order.
