  1. =))
    I know these from your book, Moon Signs, and I’ve probably read them many times over. And I think they’re brilliant every time.

    • I think you’re the one that posted it on ElsaElsa–thanks, I had forgotten all about them and enjoyed them myself. Donna

      • wish I were the one… but someone else deserves that credit. I’m just glad they showed up

  2. These are great — laugh-out-loud funny! I often find that I remember the humorous descriptions more easily than the hide-bound ones. And they’re no less profound, perhaps even more so. Thanks for these. I LOVED my Scorpio — and man, have I lived that one!

    • You’re so right. The humorous ones do stick in the memory, Melanie.

  3. Thanks, Donna! I have a new understanding of what my Libra-moon mother and Sagittarius-moon father saw in each other. Their marriage lasted thirteen years; a phenomenal span, given the combination!

  4. LOVELY :))

  5. Thanks Donna…this the first time I saw this! ha ha enjoyed. Even if I am a Leo I identified most with Aquarius. Sun in the 11th with Uranus score highest, so that makes sense.

  6. These are hilarious! Just the thing to brighten/lighten up the day.

    Thanks for posting!

  7. very funny!! 🙂

  8. Great writing! I have Cancer Moon and some of this really hits the target! LOL!
    BUT I have my Cancer Moon conjunct Uranus on the MC SO I’d edit it a bit for my personal configuration:
    Tired of typical relationships? Old-fashioned (if you consider the 60’s old-fashioned), yet bohemian, home-loving, sensitive, caring funky cook wants to put down roots and work from home via the Internet, start a family of cats . Seeking mutually nurturing but independent connection. Enclose pet photos and your Facebook status. Would consider living in a cozy RV or houseboat or traveling frequently from home. Reply to CNMO.

    • Oh, on the TV in the background, I have on H&G TV featuring beach homes!

    • Love it, Meloh! Donna

  9. Loved, loved, loved! Favs: Enclose sample witticisms; for lifelong or beyond; enclose CV; enclose FBI file. Laughed at many, but hardest at my own. Love, VIMO

  10. super! loved every one:) xxx

  11. just noticed the copyright for this thread! lol!

    • A hidden funny. 🙂

  12. Hilarious! Particularly loved “Respond if you need me to put your life back together – no problem too difficult” by Scorpio. I know a few who fit the bill.

    I don’t know what year this was written, but if it were after year 2000, Aquarius would probably ask to “Enclose gadgets and apps list.” 😆

    Great post!
