Why Are There Advertisements on Whats-Your-Sign.com
You can't go too far into this website without encountering advertisements. A part of me wants to say they are a necessary evil. But they really aren't so evil, most of the time. Why? Well, I've taken great pains to insure the ads that are shown on the website are relevant to my content, and relevant to stuff you might be searching online.
They are still, necessary. These advertisements put food on my table, pay my mortgage, pay for my Internet provider, put fuel in my gas tank. If I could have everything MY way, I would be independently wealthy, without need for ads on whats-your-sign.com. Alas, not every aspect of my world complies to my wants (yet, lol). Thankfully, there are things I can do that comply to my needs.
Sometimes (not often), I get complaints about the ads on my site. I understand. Like I said, I'd rather not have them. But if it weren't for these ads, this website wouldn't exist.
Symbolically, it's like egrets picking parasites off of cows, or ticks latching onto dogs. Each serves their function. One may not like the other, but it's the nature of things. It's a symbiotic relationship - not always agreeable, but fulfilling a purpose.
You should also know this: Even though I'm diligent about putting the best-reputable ads on my site...there might be some shady sources that sneak in. If you encounter and advertisement that has mislead you, please contact the source. I'm terribly sorry if one of the ads on my site led you to a unsatisfactory experience. I really try to cull out the badies. I urge you to do research on a site that offers a product or service before purchasing. This goes for ads on my site or any other site. Look before you leap.
In the end...advertisements allow me to keep this information FREE to you. You don't have to pay one red cent for the 100's of pages of symbolic information provided! I think that's pretty cool, and I'd like to keep it that way.
So, thanks for indulging the ads. They do serve a purpose - they keep me solvent, and enable me to keep offering you great information at no cost to you.
For those of you who know what it's like to be a "starving artist" thanks so much for understanding the purpose of advertisements.
For those of you who keep coming - even though the ads might be irking - thank you so much.
Mostly, thanks for understanding, for reading, and for your loyalty.
Big bright beams to you,
An Important Note About Signs, Symbols and Their Meanings
Signs and symbols cultivate their meanings according to culture, context, passage of time in society as well as mass societal opinion. What's cool and highly important is that signs and symbols earn their most powerful meanings from our own personal perspectives.
This website strives to provide you with the best, time-honored information when defining signs and symbols. However, in the final analysis, "Beauty (and symbolism) is in the eye of the beholder."
Having said that, it's in our best interest to invest the time to do personal research on symbolic events happening to us. This website is just one perspective in an ocean of variety and diversity in the realm of symbolism. So dive in! There is a whole universe of deeper meanings to explore! You can start your research by clicking on the links at the end or to the side of this page. Odds are good I've got a follow-up article about this symbolic topic. ;)
As always, thanks for your willingness to learn more about the language of symbolism. It's a language that is universal and everywhere. It's super-groovy to travel with you on your symbolic path, and maybe offer a little translation along the way. Thanks for reading and exploring!
