In Defense of Astrology, Psychic Healing and More

 - Nov 2, 2013
Though commonly referred to as new-age spirituality, things like astrology, psychic readings and healing crystals are far from new. Often coming without attachment to an organized religion or scientific proof of effectiveness, some find it hard to stand by new-age spirituality and all it represents. Others, however, swear by it.

Many may hear the phrase "new-age," and instantly think of scam artists crouched over cheap crystal balls or silly, unreliable smartphone apps that provide a broad daily horoscope. A deeper look into the realm of alternative spirituality will show that there is much more to it than that. I would suggest getting your chart read by a professional astrologist -- or, of course, checking out such zen-inspiring finds as the ghost-conjuring apps or skeletal star sign jewels.
