5 Funny Astrology Blogs to Visit

During April, I and some of my blogging buddies have joined with websites and blogs all over the world to celebrate National Humor Month.  With all the bad press the cardinal t-square has gotten, we figured astrology lovers could use a laugh. As humor month draws to a close, here’s a guided tour of some of the funniest astrology blogs.

Neeti Ray of Astrology Expressed specializes in funny and creative takes on astrology. Even when we’re trying to be humorous, we astrologers often miss the mark, but not Neeti. Her contribution for National Astrology Month is Random Funny Astrology Bits.   Here are some gems from her hilarious—but all too accurate—post,  Humor: Astrologers in love:

  • If the horary doesn’t say what you want it to, you change the house that signifies them.
  • You sigh over the conjunctions and gloss over the squares.
  • Ptolemaic aspects are obviously not enough; you also look at parallels, asteroids, Arabic parts and anything else you have ever heard of.
  • Not only do you remember their major planetary degrees, you also know their cusps by heart.

Joyce Mason’s unfailing sense of humor is one of the most appealing qualities of her blog, The Radical Virgo.  Some of her funnier pieces include The Radical Virgo: “God Is Not An Aries , Auntie Joyce’s Astro-Aphorisms, and Valentine’s Quotes for the Signs.  I especially liked the one for Aquarius:

“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”

In AstroHumor ~ Celebrate National Humor Month , CJ Wright of Auntie Moon challenges us to guess which Sun signs are portrayed in a slide show of funny vintage greeting cards.

The Distracted Astrologer is a funny fellow. The tag line for the blog reads,  “As above, so bel…Oh, look, kittens!”

 Kim Rogers-Gallagher is one of astrology’s funniest authors. Here’s a sample from her article about the zodiac and dating, “Why You’d Never want to Date a…..” 

Aries: Looking for a lover who’s mature, gentle, thoughtful, considerate, and entirely unselfish? Well, then, don’t even consider dating an Aries. They’ll amaze you at their ability to stuff six “I’s” into every sentence — in between slamming doors, driving like a maniac, and screaming like an infant until they get what they want.” See the rest at: http://www.innerself.com/Astrology/never_date.htm.

  1. Thank you, Donna. This reminds me, I haven’t written in a while. Aha! Maybe this weekend I will do the funny post on lunar phases that I mentioned to you.

  2. Donna, thanks for including me in this fabulous pack of fellow punsters and funsters! These links will will be my go-to’s for some laugh breaks over the next few days.

    Another post of mine that’s gotten a lot of participation and LOLs is my Astrobabble Quiz, complementing /referencing your Astrologese article: http://tinyurl.com/astrobabb

    I hope other readers share their fun stops! Spin on old tune, “What the world needs now, is laugh–sweet laugh!

    • I did laugh my ass off at this one Joyce – it was great! I think we ALL know someone like that! Thankfully I scored REALLY low on this one, so I guess I’m safe! (phew)

      If you guys haven’t read it, please check it out. It’s hysterical.

  3. Great stuff. I have always been a fan of Debbi Kempton=Smith’s Secrets from a Stargazer’s Notebook because of her humor.

  4. Hi Donna, love your site.
    A while back I created a funny IRONING BY THE MOON page in my site. It was inspired at first by the chauvinist comments of a conservative Australian politician, Tony Abbott, talking about women and ironing.
    This is the address of IRONING BY THE MOON:
