Some astrologers believing people are turning to it as a way to find clarity and reassurance about the future our Kaylee Hartung joins us with more. Kaylee, please tell me what does my future hold? Reporter: Oh, well, T.J., most of us know our zodiac sign, right? I don't know yours but for better or worse I'm a scorpio. I'm a Leo. Reporter: Oh, okay, well, we'll dive in deeper later, okay? A lot of people have been doing that over the past year and now experts are stressing these aren't real concrete predictions and saying it's important to stay grounded in reality when you look to the stars. I know your brothers are scorpios but they're still good people. You know I don't believe in that. That's a capricorn thing to Reporter: Like in "Home economics." It's a booming business.

Certainly media helping to push the practice mainstream. From Instagram. My Instagram and Twitter following skyrocketed last year. Reporter: To tiktok. Inside the mind of an aquarius. Reporter: But why now? These predictions can be so helpful mentally because we just need something to get us excited and get us looking forward again. And anticipating something great happening again in our lives. Reporter: She says it's important to keep predictions within the context of real life experiences. An astrologer can give you predictions on many things but we have to temper any information that we get that we don't rely too much on any source of information, that we're able to keep it within the reality of our lives. Reporter: And Dr. Williams says astrology has given people hope this past year and whatever source you look to for encouragement she says it can only help to find the inspiration to move forward and, T.J., astrologers agree, better days are ahead for us in 2021. We are reading our horoscopes now, Kaylee. I have a capricorn next to me, Cecilia, says that anything that holes you back, Cecilia, must go. Let it go. In this new year. Let it go.
