Honestly, it’s been a while since I used this app. Reopening Co—Star comes with the deafening sound of your heart thumping against your chest as you tunnel-vision into the singular sentence that the app gives you to sum up your day: “Admit to yourself that you don’t actually know what you want.” Well, fuck.
I’m not gonna lie, it’s a beautiful app. The minimalistic and monochromatic design really appeals to me visually, and it’s pretty fun to connect with your friends on there to see what their natal charts are like and how compatible you are with them. Are any of the descriptions true? Sometimes. But maybe it’s just confirmation bias.
Is the app worth the stress it induces, though? Not really. I’ve heard the stories of people deleting the app or turning off its notifications to avoid the ominous daily messages, and I’ve had my fair share of foreboding messages popping up on my lockscreen while I’m already having a bad day. Co—Star telling me that my love life is gonna go to shit within the week really doesn’t help—it just means I get extra cautious about the things I do (just in case!).
Currently in a toxic relationship with this app.
