Looking for a direction? Lost in love? Turn to these astrology apps for a little help

Chances are you’ve came across phrases such as “mercury retrograde” and “rising signs” while browsing through the internet, and like many of us who first dip our toes into astrology, you probably had no idea what those phrases meant when you first heard them

Astrology and spirituality have been having a moment in the last few years. Gone were the days when astrology was seen as an eccentric hobby loved only by “hippies”. Instead, the age-old practice has now attracted a different crowd of educated millennials and open-minded learners as more and more people look to the stars and planets for guidance during these unprecedented times. 

If you’re curious about astrology and want a beginner-friendly way to get into the practice, consider downloading a few astrology and horoscope apps. From getting daily readings curated to your star sign and birth time, to romance compatibility charts and even access to tarot cards to learn about your past, present and future, we list out the best astrology apps to download for 2022.

1. Co-Star

Possibly the most talked about astrology app on the internet, Co-star provides specific, hyper-personalised astrology readings so accurate that you can’t help but repost them on your Instagram. When you first sign up, the app will not only ask for your date of birth, but your time of birth as well, which partly explains the app’s stunning accuracy. The other explanation to the app’s accurate insights? Co-star attributes their success to using real-time NASA data to watch how planets move, generating the most precise reading possible. 

The app breaks down your daily reading into several categories: sex & love, routine, thinking & creativity, social life, self, and spirituality, and lets you know which ones you’ll be faring well at that day. If you need some sassy, real-talk, self-help advice, the app does that too.

3. The Pattern

The Pattern—the app that made Channing Tatum freak out on Twitter in 2019––with the actor famously exclaiming “How do you know what you know about me Pattern?”.

After inputting your date, time and city of birth, The Pattern will present in-depth insights of your key personality traits you were born with and tell you when certain traits and shifts will peak in your life. 

The app also includes questions for you to self-reflect on, or you could even opt to join the conversation worldwide and input your answer. The best part of the app, however, is possibly the Bonds feature where you can discover your compatibility with your partner(s), friends, family and even celebrities. The app is even launching an astrology-forward dating platform in the near future so that you’ll be able to find your spiritual match.
