Tue Sep 24, 2013, 07:24 PM

I think the time has come for me to say goodbye.

I have had a great time hear for years now. At this time, I feel led to other things. I want to thank
so many of you great people for all that we have shared. I feel driven to get away from poisonous
political matters, and no matter what I do; I feel that the great political sadness that has gripped this
site is affecting me more than I can allow.

I will be releasing my new website, still www.starself.com very soon. If any of you need me, you
know where to find me. I feel like these matters run their own course and my time is over. I will check
in now and then, but writing and reading will be taking up more and more of my time. Liza and I
have started our 2nd book; another reason to limit my extracurricular activities.

I send all of you my best; I hope I have helped some of you to learn at least the basic truth
about real astrology.

Thank you all so much for being such good friends.

Love,
Rick

I know what you mean about how toxic things have become here with certain elements. Maybe a vacation is what you need for now. Blessings on you.

15. Thank you for sharing

so much in so many ways

I'm sick of politics and anything around it. The republicans there are no words anymore. THe Dems
are getting really bad too, both lead me away from spirit. Dems have possibilities. Reps will
be gone in 1.5 years by Neptune, they did it to themselves. They want to and are largely succeeding at
taking us down with them. THe down side of their Cancer Sun and Moon in Scorpio. (It also has a great
up side)

I will be in touch and on Facebook under my name and the mailing list will be auto-maintained on the new
web site for videos and newsletters.

love you

Best wishes on your new path and to Liza and you as you create.

Thank you again for everything. I'll be looking forward to your 2nd book, and hope you'll be able to do another series of videos on it at some point.

for many reasons, and one of the main reasons was you. At least I have your book.. but I will miss you and your very insightful posts.

I am confused as to where you can be found now, I would hate to lose track of you completely.

I hope you will feel ok to let us know how to find you

Thank you for your willingness to speak the truth and for sharing your vast and wonderful star knowledge..

40. Latest update from Starself

Hi all, the results are in from THE EXQUISITE ZODIAC CONTEST.


It was a very difficult choice as so many people did a great job of defining "How astrology works." Which is a very difficult task. There were 33 entries and after a hard look, Liza and I definitely decided upon a tie between the following two. And here are their words:

Michael Crall, Wheeling, WV

"All is Energy. This simple postulate coupled with the realization that the Exquisite Zodiac conditions and patterns this Energy allowing the blueprint for the tapestry of the Gods to unfold. Astrology works through understanding the relationships and characteristics of the Energetic patterns as represented in the Zodiac."


Valerie Moll, Mt. Lebanon, PA

"Astrology works because it describes the archetypes at play in the blueprint for every soul/entity at the moment of birth. It continues to explain the challenges the soul/entity encounters as it journeys through time into higher consciousness midst the shifting influences of planetary/archetypal effects upon this blueprint."

Congratulations to our two winners who will receive a free reading or autographed copy of "The Exquisite Zodiac." Thanks to all of you who participated. It was fun, and there will be more contests in the future.

Now, to bring you up-to-date on many issues.

1. There is a brand new STARSELF.COM out there! Go take a look! If you don't see it, remember to refresh your browser. A big round of applause is due to Kathy Then of Pittsburgh who designed it. Yes, she is the one who designed the wonderful cover of The Exquisite Zodiac. Also, I'd like to thank Laura Childs of Ontario, who
contributed so much to its content and design and all of her new efforts with the new Facebook campaign.

2. Due to advancing heart issues and MS complications, I am being forced to slow down and take upon a lighter schedule than I have in the past. I'm am doing ok and am not only blessed with my wonderful life-partner, Liza Jane Brown, but also with all of you who give us great support. We write as close as possible in accord to what we feel the Holy Spirit is trying to express. I am still doing readings. Liza is finishing up her first successful beginners class. I read only one afternoon per week at my office in Green Tree or Pittsburgh, PA.

Besides that, I have a very busy practice via telephone internationally. My fee is $200 and the length of the readings have stretched to between 60 and 90 minutes depending on the "nature of the reading." Readings have a life of their own.

3. I continue to write for OM Times magazine, online. Please look our recent wonderful book review in the Mountain Astrology magazine.

4. I continue to put out newsletters, but now, they'll be going through WordPress. You can now sign up or unsubscribe to our mailing list via the new website, starself.com - simply press the CONTACT tab. Each mailing will also allow you to unsubsribe safely if you wish.

5. We will be appearing as guest speakers in Akron, OH on November 9th and 10th at the John Knight Convention

Center. We will be speaking of and selling "The Exquisite Zodiac" which now sells for $15.25 and $9.99 for Kindle or Nook.

6. We have 12 new videos on my new channel on YouTube with plans for much more. Simply search YouTube for Rick DiClemente.

7. As promised, I will be presenting a free introductory course to astrology in a video series on YouTube. Since the beginning of most astrology courses starts with the signs, I will start with a total review of the entire Exquisite Zodiac. This will give you a great foundational understanding to the signs of the zodiac. Then, I will continue with episodes on the planets, aspects, formations, transits, etc. All in time.

8. There will be months when there is no newsletter. Please understand this. They are very time-consuming to write and I only write when inspired. It is not my objective to give you a "heads-up" on what the planets are doing. I talk about what I talk about because that's what I talk about.

9. Yes, the planet and this country are experiencing tremendous stresses. Liza and I are doing everything we can to help you understand the overall era in which we find ourselves. We are extremely excited to see how the collective is evolving at such a rapid rate.

We'd like to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts as we all reach out to each other to bring about a much needed cure to the human race and the earth itself.

Love to all,

Liza and Rick

41. So this is what a mature Capricorn looks like "slowing down". LOL


Will certainly miss your exchanges here in ASAH, tho I must admit I don't frequent DU much these days cuz of the same toxic vibe you referred to that now seems to be the norm. Thank Goddess for this group! I do lurk here occasionally, & will be looking for your return. You have been such a help to so many here, including this old crone. Will be checking out the new website & exchanging on FB. May your health issues rectify themselves quickly. Best of luck with your "slowing down" agenda!

at the risk of other ASAHer's thinking I'm being unkind.
Capricorns are the work horses of the zodiac. So when you look at Ric's list, it simply re-emphasizes that. It's quite a list! I just couldn't resist pointing that out! No wonder he has to let something go. Wishing him continued success!
