The original website was launched in tandem with the shop and at its peak had a record of 32,000 visitors in a single day when a newspaper article on Ophiuchus resulted in search engines directing enquiries to a page on the site dedicated to the subject of the 13th constellation and its place in the zodiac.
A BRIEF HISTORY
Established in July 2007 as a retail business at 110 The Rock in Bury, Lancashire, Gelageo moved to stall 13 in Wyndham Block on Bury Market where we traded until June 2008 before conceding that retail overheads were unsustainable.
WHO WE ARE - then and now
Angela and Geoff met through an online dating site in June 2006 and within a year had a new home, a son and a business together combining their names, as above, to create Gelageo.
Today Gelageo is run by Geoff whilst Angela has become a psychic spiritual life coach, adopted the name Rainbow Starlight with her own website, plans to write a book on her journey of personal transformation which started on her father's 91st birthday in 2020 and has now spends a great deal of her time in Glastonbury.
WHAT WE DO
We are here to assist you in developing self-knowledge and understanding through the use of the esoteric sciences but principally the many branches of astrology, numerology, cosmology and cardology - tarot and the magi. (4 'ologys')
We have the tools and experience to help answer your questions and, in the odd instance where we can't, we know a man who can.
People have been taught to ridicule astrology yet the largest library on the subject in the world is housed at the Vatican and some powerful people, including world leaders, have used it successfully to ascertain propitious timings for major events. This also explains why it is classed as a pseudoscience, that there are no TV programmes on the subject and that websites such as this must make it clear that the content is for entertainment purposes only.
You won't find us on any social media channels as there's little point in us trying to compete with the myriad of established esoteric sites utilising technology and marketing methods to good end. Instead we prefer to share our knowledge and experience through offering a personal service - the quality rather than quantity approach to life.
Namaste (I bow to you) and In Lak'ech Ala K'in (Mayan for "I am you and you are me" - we are all one)
The lunar phase is a vital indicator of the area of life being affected on a day to day basis yet thousands of years ago the Mayan civilisation had its own method of interpreting the energy of each day - one of several sophisticated calendar systems, the tzolkin has 13 tones/numbers making a 'trecena' and 20 day signs.
A 260 day perpetual calendar which is still followed in meso america and which has spawned a modern day version known as the Dreamspell.
