Astrological insight in the palm of your hand
Every morning, John Aydin ’20 wakes up to a message on his phone that reads, “Your day at a glance.” These “hyper personalized” messages are meant to give Aydin, who has a Scorpio sun and moon with a rising Aquarius astrological sign, daily advice on how to go about his day.

“Anyone who knows anything about astrology knows that [my signs] mean I’m a mess,” Aydin said. “It’s kind of nice because it gives you a reality check at points you don’t necessarily know you need a reality check.”

When someone downloads an astrology app, they are asked to fill out an in depth questionnaire about when and where they were born. Some apps, like Co-Star, claim to use data from NASA to track lunar patterns, which play a role in determining someone’s astrology. All of this information is then interpreted by professional astrologers and the app’s algorithm to produce a detailed “birth chart” that is supposed to provide insight into different aspects of someone’s life.

“Your chart probably more describes how you would naturally be inclined to act, behave and manifest, if you were free of any kind of outside influence,” Aydin said. “The more I found out how complex the system of astrology is, the more I got into it because it was saying accurate things about me.”

Within pop culture, astrology has seen a resurgence in popularity. Some of this is due to the widespread use of horoscopes and astrology memes, but this is also due to people actually believing in astrology. People have gone from saying, “What’s your snap?” to “What’s your sign?”
