For the latest in consumer and industry news, top trends and market perspectives, stay tuned to Mintel News featuring commentary from Mintel's team of global category analysts.

In today’s episode, host Elysha Yong welcomes consumer lifestyle and marketing strategy experts to discuss astrology. It has been around since the 3rd millennium BC as a way to explain human behaviour (or so some believe). Today, it’s experiencing a resurgence—driven by social media—that began with Millennials and has now exploded with Gen Z. The experts explain why the sudden interest from a consumer perspective, discussing themes like spirituality, the collective, self-expression, decision paralysis and regaining control. Curious to understand how and why brands are getting involved, who’s doing it well and where the opportunity exists? Listen now to find out what marketers should know before weaving the zodiac into their next brand campaign.
