Astrology is a system that looks at cycles of life using the language of planets. It’s about planetary energies that influence our personal personalities, temperament, challenges and strengths.
The practice of astrology has been around in various forms for thousands of years. The New Age movement of the 1960s and ’70s launched the New Age as the “Age of Aquarius”—the 2,000-year period after the Earth is said to move into the Aquarius sign.
People especially turn to spirituality and astrology during stress. Millennials and Gen Xers have been significantly more stressed than previous generations since 2012 and are embracing astrology with a huge hug.
