Whether you’re already well-versed in the world of astrology or an occasional horoscope-checker, keeping up with the planets can be an exciting way to better understand—and even become—your best self.

Astrology is everywhere these days, and knowing where to start can feel overwhelming. That’s why we’ve broken things down so you can explore reading the stars at your own pace, with the features you want, whenever you want.

Ahead are our picks of ultra-detailed astro apps you can download right now that are sure to inspire even the skeptics among us. If you’re curious about romance compatibility, friendship patterns, and personalized daily readings, read on. While some of the apps on this list offer deeper detail, others are super easy to decipher—even for those of us who only know our sun sign.


Co-Star

With a million Instagram followers (literally), it’s no secret that Co-Star Astrology is a true millennial favorite. The app’s minimal black and white design highlights the good stuff: personalized horoscopes, compatibility with lovers and friends, and up-to-date planetary movements. Co-Star CEO Banu Guler has declared astrology a self-care tool, and with astrological forecasting this specific, it’s easy to agree. This free app transforms complex astro info into bite-sized updates about you (and all of your friends).

The Pattern

If you’re ready to level up your astro psychoanalysis, The Pattern will put you on blast, with zero hesitation. This app focuses on users’ cycles and life timing, offering wildly accurate (to the day!) insights on behavioral tendencies, healing trends, creativity, relationships, career paths, and tons more. If you haven’t checked out The Pattern yourself yet, you might’ve heard of it through Channing Tatum’s viral video about the app’s mind-blowing precision. And it’s completely free to use.

Sanctuary

If you’re looking for something lighter, Sanctuary is the perfect introduction for astrological terminology. We are in love with Sanctuary’s adorably informative illustrations that form a colorful index of zodiac knowledge. You’ve probably seen their hilarious pie charts on Instagram, where no sign is immune from being dragged for their specific tendencies. This app has a unique interface that “chats” information using a text message-like format. While some of the advanced features cost $19.99 a month, the app has lots of useful information available for free. And it’s available as both an iPhone and Android app.

Time Nomad

As far as astrology apps go, Time Nomad gets super specific in helping to guide a new generation of budding astrologers, and we’re here for it. With detailed weekly lessons, full charts, and planet (minor body and asteroid) placements, Time Nomad is the app you need. If you’ve been dying to analyze your lover’s birth chart and dig a little deeper (Capricorn and Scorpio, we’re lookin’ at you), you’ll likely appreciate this free interface as much as we do.

The DailyHoroscope

Solidify your 2020 morning routine with astro updates from The DailyHoroscope. If you want to skip the psychoanalysis and chart interpretation, The DailyHoroscope offers free, digestible insights to get you feeling present and connected to the stars. Sometimes it feels good to focus on one day at a time and hold off from thinking about tomorrow. Morning coffee and the cosmos? Yes, please.

Time Passages

TimePassages has some exciting features, all located in one powerful little app. Offering a somewhat wider range than some of the more classic horoscope apps, TimePassages has moon phase info, personalized birth data, and detailed sign interpretation. If you’re confused about anything, this app puts a huge glossary of astrology terms right at your fingertips for instant access to all of your burning questions (yes, we’re talking about your crush.) The basic app is free, with the option to upgrade to a pro version for $29.99.

Astrostyle

Astrostyle features professional astrology readings from identical twin sisters Tali and Ophira Edut—better known as the AstroTwins. Their previous clients include Beyoncé, Michelle Branch, Stevie Wonder, and dozens of other celebrities. If you’re looking for short and sweet horoscopes that range from daily, weekly, and monthly updates, from two women who know their stuff, then try out AstroStyle. You can download it for $1.99 in the App Store.

iLuna

If you’re as obsessed with tracking every full and new moon as we are, iLuna is an obvious choice. For $2.99, this app focuses on lunar phases, where the moon is positioned, and what it all means! If you’re worried about full moon insomnia or wondering how soon you’ll need to refresh your CBD sleep ritual, then iLuna may be the answer. To help decipher what the moon is up to, and how it’s affecting your day, iLuna offers an ultra-simple interface for fast and reliable interpretation.

Chaturanga Astrology

Want to chat directly with professional astrologers? Chaturanga can make it happen. All you need is your birth data and the app will set you up with a free consultation, before directing you to different package options for Vedic astrology. This app allows users to interact with a team of astrological consultants who can help guide relationship, career, and life growth. Personalized astrological attention from a professional team? Self-care in 2020 is looking good.
