Astrology’s vast world can now be within your grasp with the aid of apps that combine age-old wisdom with cutting-edge tech magic. Here are some popular choices:
This app provides daily horoscopes with straightforward explanations, as well as an educational section covering planet positions and their relation to one another. In addition, paid compatibility readings and guidance from on-demand astrologers are available on demand.
Launched in 2017, Co-Star offers its 5 million+ users the ability to enter their time, date, and place of birth for daily horoscope predictions. Furthermore, Co-Star compares each individual natal chart against those of their friends (provided they also use Co-Star) in order to give insight into whether or not their compatibility might exist.
Banu Guler, one of the founders of Co-Star, explained to Mashable that her app utilizes data from NASA in conjunction with an AI program in order to offer personalized astrological experiences. According to Guler, Co-Star horoscopes differ from what might be found in magazines in order to mirror how you might discuss astrology with friends.
Gen Z has taken to this app, available exclusively on iOS devices until recently releasing it for Android on Friday.
Nebulae are interstellar clouds composed of dust, hydrogen and helium that mark either the birth or death of stars and are sometimes known as star nurseries. Astronomers categorize these cloud structures based on their appearance – dark nebulae may appear as irregularly shaped black patches in the sky and block out light from more distant objects beyond them while brighter nebulae emit either their own light or reflect that from nearby stars.
Emission nebulae generate their own light by exciting gas atoms in their surrounding medium with energy from high-energy photons, ionizing them and stripping away electrons to release light as energy. Reflection nebulae reflect nearby hot stars’ light, making them harder to spot without special filters.
Chaturanga (four-limbed staff pose) is an integral component of Sun Salutations and serves as an effective strength-builder for wrists, arms, core, posture improvement and posture correction. But it can easily lead to overdoing it resulting in misalignments which place shoulders at risk of injury.
Building the upper-body strength required for Chaturanga takes patience and discipline, but once set correctly it can serve as an invaluable foundational posture that makes more challenging arm balances easier.
Studies suggest that practicing Chaturanga as part of a yoga protocol could reduce fatigue and inflammation among breast cancer survivors.1 More research should be conducted in this area to confirm these results, though upper-body strength gained through Chaturanga can prepare the body for inversions such as Bakasana (Crane Pose) and Galavasana (Flying Pigeon Pose). Furthermore, Chaturanga may help increase scalp blood circulation to promote hair health and reduce hair fall.1

Snap takes privacy very seriously, and only uses your precise birth date and time for its Astrological Profile feature. Your birth data will never be shared with third parties or used for any other purposes – the app even enables you to delete this particular birth data at any time, by tapping on your avatar and selecting your birthday in settings.
Astrology is the study of planets, stars and constellations and their impact on our lives. Astrology literally means “the language of the stars,” providing insight into past, present and future events.
While astrology apps still represent only a minor portion of App Store revenue, they are steadily gaining steam. Vice Media’s Astro Guide app has become one such example of this trend and attracted an audience in the millions across both digital properties and social channels owned by Vice.
Apps designed around astrology or horoscopes typically feature birth chart generators, compatibility calculators, planetary movements tracking features and push notifications. The cost associated with developing such apps varies based on complexity of development requirements as well as platforms being targeted.
