11 Apps Every Astrology Enthusiast Needs On Their Phone

All too often, keeping up with all the movements and shifts in astrology feels like playing an endless game of catch up. Missing out on the umpteenth Mercury retrograde or full moon can make any horoscope fan wish they could have all that info at their fingertips — literally.

Luckily, there's a whole realm of astrology-related mobile apps to explore. From ones that deliver straightforward daily horoscopes to ultra-informative apps that can turn a beginner into an expert, there's an app out there for every kind of astrological enthusiast.


Ahead, we've rounded up our absolute favorite astro apps. (And if your phone still doesn't feel spiritually complete after browsing our picks, check out our guide to more witch-friendly apps here.)

The Pattern

This mysterious app launched in 2017 and has skyrocketed in popularity thanks to its detailed analysis — which does not sugarcoat anything ("You're a newcomer when it comes to paying attention to how you feel or even acknowledging that you have feelings"). Part of the appeal of the Pattern is that it doesn't explain the readings. Instead of reading an explanation about trines, you simply get an alert telling you what to expect.

Download it if you want to be astrologically dragged, in detail.


Launched in 2019, this astrology app is all about the aesthetics. Along with daily sun and risign sign horoscopes and a "power emoji," you can explore guides to the different planets and book a one-on-one paid reading with an astrologer.

Download it if your power emoji is the crystal ball.

Chaturanga Astrology Horoscope

Having this app on your phone is as close as you can get to carrying around a pocket-sized version of a living, breathing astrologer. Simply provide your birth info (date, time, and place), and ask a question about your career, love life, or anything, really. An astrologer, one who practices Indian or Vedic astrology, will respond with their informed answer.

Download it if you're tired of Western astrology and want to explore Vedic astrology instead.

Time Nomad

This app is great for keeping track of planetary movements and diving deep into your birth chart, but it can also be an insightful supplement to your daily horoscope if you're already familiar with star charts. If you add the app's widget to your home screen, you can view the planets' positions every day, so you never miss an important transit or retrograde.

Download it if you're an advanced student of astrology who wants a daily quiz.

Oscar & Jonathan Cainer Horoscopes

With insightful daily, weekly, and monthly 'scopes, this app has all your basics covered (it even stores your horoscope from the previous day so you can look back on how the planets really affected your life). But, the standout feature on this app is the "about my friend" section, in which you plug in your friend's astrological info and receive a reading on their personality.

Download it if you're a bit of an astrological snoop.

Astrology Zone

Susan Miller's monthly horoscopes, informative videos, and Twitter updates are at your fingertips in this app. The renowned astrologer goes deep with her thorough descriptions of the planets' activities, making the app's content great for an immersive read on your commute or with your morning coffee.

Download it if you want a 'scope that leaves no astrological stone unturned.


Powered by NASA data and the insights of professional astrologers, this highly customizable app keeps you up to date on the planets' movements — and what those transits mean for you. Plus, its sharing features allow you to swap astrological info with friends, providing they have the app, too.

Download it if astrology is part of your aesthetic.

The DailyHoroscope

If you need your daily dose of astrology the same way others crave their morning coffee, this is the app for you. A single tap brings you to your daily 'scope, and you can even set timed reminders to avoid missing a single day's cosmic update.

Download it if you want to stay up to date with the stars, but you still want to keep things simple.


Info on birth charts and specific planetary signs? This app has it. Up-to-the-minute transit updates? This app has that, too. Regular horoscopes? Yep, you can find those in TimePassages. This app's near-encyclopedic scope is an enticing rabbit hole for anyone who's ready to go beyond their sun sign.

Download it if you're ready to begin your astrological education in earnest.

Mercury Retrograde

From the retrograde experts at FindYourFate.com comes this handy app that keeps you in-the-know about the state of Mercury at any moment, whether it's harmlessly direct, about to enter retrograde, or in the middle of a post-retrograde shadow period.

Download it if you're done trying to make plans during a Mercury retrograde.


This all-in-one app from the Astrotwins lets you check your daily, weekly, and monthly 'scopes, then cross-reference your star forecast with your sign's (or someone else's) romance style. In other words, this app is a stand-in for an astrologically savvy big sister.

Download it if you want a comprehensive one-stop shop for your astro needs.


Not only does this app help you keep up with the current lunar phase, it also alerts you to the moon's position in the wheel of Zodiac. So, whether you're strictly interested in the energy of this month's lunation, or you want ample time to prep before la luna enters your sign, iLuna will keep you in the loop.

Download it if you hate missing a full moon — for the Insta and ritual benefits.

Astro Gold

Made for professional astrologers, this app costs a whopping $39.99. But the accuracy and detail that comes with that price tag just might be worth it to you. Not only can you draw up birth charts, solar return charts, and Saturn return charts — you can save and edit them, too. This app is perfect if you already know a bit about planetary transits and how to read a chart, but you want to go even deeper.

Download it if you need to know someone's moon, rising, and planetary signs at a moment's notice — and you're willing to pay for that immediacy.
