Confession: I follow 721 accounts on Instagram, and I’m gonna guess a full third of them are astrology related. And most of those…are meme accounts. A look at my Instagram saved folder shows Snooki as eclipse season, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande as the air signs, and the cast of Big Little Lies as Libra traits (daydreaming, needs opinions on everything, trouble falling asleep, self-care).
So here’s my defense: Memes have actually helped me understand astrology better—especially when it comes to particular transits like Venus Retrograde as well as signs that don’t have a big presence in my own birth chart. I’m a Scorpio Sun, Sagittarius Moon, and Virgo Rising, so I know those signs’ traits perfectly (flips hair), and one of my closest friends is a classic Capricorn, so I’ve got the sea-goat down too—but Libra, Aquarius, and Cancer? I know ’em now, but when I first got into astrology, I needed to learn. And seeing Cancer represented as Don Draper giving a presentation on “What if we fight, I make all my friends hate you, then I take you back”…you know what? I’m gonna remember that.
So here’s a bunch of funny astrology memes. Hopefully, they’ll teach you a thing or two about the universe, but if they just make you laugh, that’s fine too.
