What’s the use of astrology? From ancient times to the present, most people are concerned about the secular value of astrology, especially the popular astrology in China. The focus of research is mostly the wealth of wives, children, wealth and fame. Therefore, the so-called good fortune seekers want more material and secular interests, while the bad fortune seekers want to escape some real obstacles and difficulties in their life.
People have always been interested in the stars

Astrology is enjoying a resurgence in popularity
Astrology has been around for centuries, but in the past decade, it’s started to enjoy a resurgence in popularity. This renewed interest is not just with the general public-Astrology is also a popular hobby of celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Alba. Why does Astrology appeal to so many people now?

The popularity of astrology today says a lot about what this generation values when it comes to self-knowledge and growth.
Stress and Uncertainty
In a world of increased stress and uncertainty, maybe it’s not surprising that astrology has become so popular. One out of every three Americans believes in astrologers. Astrology is an ancient art that uses the sun, moon, and other celestial bodies to cast a light on your life by analyzing the position and alignment of these bodies. It tells you about your personality traits, offers insight into your relationships with others, and can even suggest ways for you to make changes in your life.
Astrology has many uses and provides insight into different topics, such as those related to relocation, health, family, career and relationships. Most of the reading is related to the life story of the client and his birth chart. Moreover, astrological reading is customized and organic, and unique to anyone. Before comprehensive reading, astrologers need to have a detailed understanding of your life. Once this information is known, astrologers can give readings that can benefit in many different ways.
Could astrology provide some insight into our lives?
Astrology can provide some insight into our lives. For example, what’s your rising sign? In astrology, the rising sign is the constellation that’s on the eastern horizon at your time of birth. Rising signs are used to determine some of our personality traits and tendencies.
Today’s popularity of astrology can naturally be attributed to its growing sense of existence in popular culture. Goodall said, “We have seen that some celebrities openly support their belief in and participation in astrology, including Lady Gaga planning her tour date around astrology, and Beyonce writing songs for astrology.” Frequent exposure to various aspects of astrology may stimulate a person’s interest and subsequently affect their participation in astrology. In addition, Benning mentioned that reading and sharing information about astrology may help build a community around astrology, which may encourage even more people to participate.
Of course, like most things in the world, what is good for some people may not be so for others. Goodall said: “With the increasing popularity of astrology, public health research should not only focus on evaluating the scientific effectiveness of astrology, but also clarify how individuals understand astrology and how astrology affects people’s overall (psychological) health.” Because of the sudden popularity of astrology, it may be more important than ever to evaluate the reasons why people are exposed to astrology and to study the impact of astrology on people’s health and well-being.
