In episode 139 of the podcast astrologers Dayna Lynn Nuckolls and Jessica Lanyadoo join the show to talk about whether astrology is becoming more or less popular in society.
This question arose as a discussion topic recently in the astrological community after some recent media coverage of astrology, which included a piece in the New York Times titled How Astrology Took Over the Internet.
During the course of the show we discuss some different areas of growth and possible decline, as well as some of the nuances and difficulties associated with accurately gauging interest in astrology due to changing trends in publishing, technology, and culture.
The discussion ends up focusing on how the transformation of traditional gatekeeping structures, such as the book publishing industry, do seem to have led to an increase in the popularity of the subject in recent times, as well as greater diversity among both consumers and practitioners of astrology.
