48% of Bulgarian Women Believe in Astrology

According to a new survey by the Trend Research Center, 31% of Bulgarian believe in astrology.

They found that the belief in astrology doesn’t depend on socio-political factors like wealth or place of residence, but more on the gender of the person. It was found that 48% of Bulgarian women believe in horoscopes while a mere 13% of men do. Astrology is a large part of women’s lifestyle media like sites and talk show segments. The targeting of that sort of audience was reported as a reason for the larger percentage of women who have faith in astrology.

Ivelina Slavkova from Trend revealed the data during an interview with the Bulgarian National Television. She stated that a major factor in the supernatural stemmed from tradition and how foreign the superstitions are. For example, few Bulgarians believe that the groom shouldn’t see the bride prior to a wedding, but many have red threads that protect from magic, a common local superstition.
