Astrology is everywhere these days. It’s on t-shirts, mugs, necklaces and everyone’s lips. The question “What’s your sign?” frequently pops up in conversation. It’s just as casual as someone asking what show you’re watching on Netflix. Maybe you want to see what the fuss is all about and find out what the heck Mercury retrograde is. Or perhaps you’ve dabbled a little bit. You read your horoscope every month or check the Co-Star app regularly. You just don’t know what any of it means, really. 

It can provide some comfort when there doesn’t seem to be any structure in your life. The planets move in logical ways. That’s why we rounded up the best Zodiac books for you.
