Even before COVID-19 spread all over the world, Western astrology has already been famous for young people through social media. But development in technology, change in beliefs, and the effects of the pandemic have made it even more popular. Some people look for jobs after losing their previous ones, while others want advice on what career to have from home. Torres said that astrology has “a way of getting us more connected to life.”
People who “believe” in astrology use it as a tool to seek help and think about something when they’re not sure. They need support, more connection, and knowledge, and they consider astrology as one of the best solutions. Because of modern technology’s way of giving advice, astrology is more likely to stay and be part of our daily lives.
