Whether you have an unhealthy obsession with when the next Mercury Retrograde is or you’re out here ready for your first celestial enlightenment, there’s a big pool of astrology apps you absolutely need in your life. Some will give you daily horoscope snippets and others are the Holy Grail of understanding tarot cards and birth charts in a big way.
Here are the best astrology apps.
Co-Star is a new-age god which holds all the celestial power of the universe. It may be the “most talked” about but there are many good reasons as to why Co-Star should be taking up some good ol’ memory on your phone. This AI-powered daily horoscope app is uber personalised for you and if Dua Lipa says it’s a “banging astrology app”, then it’s good enough for us. Co-Star’s predictions are based on a map of the sky at your exact time and place of birth, coupled with actual NASA data to track the planets as they move. You can also add your mates to keep track of their zodiac signs and check out your compatibility.
If you're after a bit of education and enlightenment with your horoscopes, Nebula is the astrology app for you. With a simple setup and sleek interface, checking your daily, weekly, monthly and yearly horoscopes has never been easier. Each day, Nebula will tell you your focus of the day, give you insight into your physical, emotional and intellectual biorhythms, and clue you in on any key astrology events—so you'll always be prepped for the next Mercury Retrograde. If you opt for the premium version, you can also check your compatibility with anyone from your partner and friends to co-workers and family, or you can jump into their guides to learn about palmistry, zodiac, signs, planets, birthstones and more. If you want to take it up a notch, choose from one of their experienced astrologers for your very own reading.

If you’re keen to step things up a notch and fire through that paywall, you’ll get a more comprehensive runover of your horoscopes, horoscopes that look at your week ahead so you plan accordingly and some groovy essays on what Mercury Retrograde actually is, why you need to note the year’s eclipses plus a whole heap of compatibility reports.
If you’re that person that is neurotically obsessed with meeting new people and asking them what their rising sign or ascendant is—welcome to your new best friend. The Pattern is an in-depth personality app which will give you some big insights into various personality traits, breakdowns of emotional cycles (past, present and future) and even highlight various cycles happening in the world that affected people collectively without them even realising.
