Your Privacy

I’m rabid about privacy, and I follow the “Golden Rule” when it comes to information exchange. That means you can trust the information you share with me (in email, contact forms, comments, content contribution, newsletter subscriptions) will be honored and respected. I never resell your information to third parties, and that’s a promise.


Google Ads and Other Advertisements on the Site

Obviously, ads are used on this website as a means to counter costs and overhead. 99.5% of the time these ads are on the up-and-up (relevant, high-integrity, trustworthy). If, however, you’ve clicked on an advertisement that leads you to an unsatisfactory experience, please know this is not the responsibility of the owner or whats-your-sign.com. If you want to know why I have ads on this site, check out my article on Advertisements on Whats-Your-Sign.com here.


About Symbolic Meanings on this Site

Views and opinions expressed in this website are made for and by the owner for no other reason than to expand experience and knowing (although, entertainment-value is also a plus). Personal opinions expressed here and in correspondence are, well…personal. In the end, interpretations of any sort are strictly your own responsibility.

It should be clear the symbolic messages, observations, symbols and ideas on this website are my personal perspectives. In the world of symbolism everything is subjective. That means symbolism is in the eye of the beholder.

If you’re not sure of a symbolic meaning, do more research for yourself until you are satisfied with the meaning.

Symbolic meanings are extremely personal, it’s just good sense to do your own personal research to “flesh out” a deeper meaning for self-satisfaction.
