Ever since people began to look for meaning in life and to answer questions, astrology has become a part of many people’s lives. Astrology has evolved from one end of the planet to the other with different meanings. Some cultures have used it to define laws and punishments, others for love and spirituality. The rise of astrology was observed in times of peace and war, abundance and famine.
Nowadays, once again, there has been a considerable increase in people’s interest in astrology and other services such as clairvoyance and supernatural psychic abilities.
But what accounts for the rising popularity of astrological and psychic services?
Pandemic and the current crisis
In these times, we have a lot of uncertainty. Scientists and specialists in various fields of life contradict each other. This scientific duality creates a lot of tension in people’s minds, which pushes them to other information sources. Today, the future has become very uncertain and almost impossible to speculate with logical reasoning. This is one reason why astrology, tarot cards, and other ways of interpreting the future have seen an increase in popularity due to the human psyche’s need to receive answers.
Access to technology and the need for moral support
If, in the past, people had to go to the astrologer’s office or the “secret” and specially arranged location of the “witch,” now an internet connection is enough.
Constrained by the social stress humanity finds itself in, it needs hope, optimism, and some moral support. Who can best tell us that nothing is everlasting, that we are at an impasse, and that our future still holds something bright for us? – The astrologer, the clairvoyant, etc. Even more so, people need advice that coincides with their beliefs, so they may find the inner strength to move forward.
Stars and cosmic energy
Do stars and cosmic energy contribute to these massive increases in interest in astrological and psychic services? Yes, there are cosmic events that influence and lead humanity to a greater interest in self-knowledge! There may be a strong need to seek answers for one’s own life and evolution. But how can you get answers in this period full of uncertainty? – everyone must answer this question alone. Since ancient times, astrologers and people with special psychic abilities served as therapists, doctors, and soul guides. These things are nowadays turning into entertainment, making it easier for astrology to reach the homes of a more significant amount of people with the help of the internet and media. Studies and statistics show us that the generation of people born between 1982 and 1999 is “obsessed” with reading the horoscope. Why? One reason is that current astrology offers people an excuse to justify their less positive character traits and behaviors. “It’s not my fault I make bad decisions; it’s because I’m Libra” or “I’m very emotional right now because the Full Moon has entered the sign of Cancer,” some might say.
And even though this might be tempting, it would benefit us more to use this astrological guidance to understand ourselves better and improve our lives through inner change.
