Bustle's Beginner's Guide To Astrology

Whether or not you’re into it (and we’re guessing you are, since you opened this email), astrology is as mainstream as ever. Bustle recently asked 2,000 women ages 18 to 35 who occasionally read their horoscope about their relationship with the cosmos, finding that 75% identified as believers. What’s more, 53% said that astrology had become a bigger part of their life since 2020. “When people are dealing with a lot of uncertainty, astrology is one of the places that they go to because it gives them context,” says Mecca Woods, Bustle’s resident astrologer. (And The New Yorker, back in 2019.) This guide is for anyone who wants to learn what the hype is all about — you’ll learn about your birth chart essentials, the best astrology apps and books to help you go deeper, and guidance for moving ahead in your astrological journey. Happy stargazing. Read More
