Susan Miller says astrology is the study of mathematical cycles and has nothing to do with her being psychic (she claims not to be). Her A-Z mobile app offers daily horoscopes in a bitesize, clear and easy-to-understand format as well as monthly horoscopes, compatibility reports, essays and more.
Combining my love of memes with a newfound interest in astrology, @notallgeminis is a light-hearted take on all things star signs. Topical, silly and hilarious, this account always hits the nail on the head.
On a recent trip to a rural part of Portugal, I had a chance to be away from London’s light pollution, which meant gorgeous starry skies. Sky View app came in handy – you point your device to the horizon and it immediately lets you know which planets or constellations you’re looking at. I now know I saw Jupiter rising!
It’s a natural human instinct to want to know what’s beyond planet Earth. ‘Cosmos: A spacetime odyssey’, does an amazing job at explaining this in an accessible, playful way. Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson takes you on a guided tour of the galaxy, with cosmological theories of the universe, space and time. Guaranteed mind-blowing experience.
