At some point, two of our generation’s main coping mechanisms collided to create the most neurotic and narcissistic lovechild of all time; astrology memes. Calling out everything from your sign's Cardi B lyrics to its dating strategy (or lack thereof), astro memes will help guide you through the ins and outs of existence. They can also give you the heads up on all the shitty things that you can blame on the pure fact that you were born during a particular time of the year. And because we need as much fucking direction as possible, in this special edition of Follow Friday, we round up the five best accounts making us laugh... or cry – tbh, it really depends on your sign.
You truly never know what you’re going to get when you follow @notallgeminis. The account – run by Courtney Perkins – can go from Shrek characters to “never have I ever” sign readings in the space of days. Courtney’s pace is also incredible, so if you need a daily astro meme fix, this one’s for you. Also, maybe/probably the only Gemini I actually follow out of choice (not even sorry).
Full moon in Sagittarius, Venus in Libra, Gemini with a Sagittarius moon; these terms are likely to go over most people’s heads. But if they don’t fly above yours, @astromemequeen is your point of contact. More meta in terms of astrology terms, but balanced with a lot of cartoon references – Simpsons, Spongebob, Sailor Moon. Need I say more?
If you’re into throwing shade, @jakesastrology is the leafy, luscious tree that you want to sit yourself under and feel the chill. No sign is safe here, which is what makes this account so great. PSA: not for the faint-hearted.
For the more data, less pop culturally minded, @lookupthestarsastro is your go-to. Via its now-famous pie charts, this account will really help you get to grips with the signs. If you’ve ever wondered “How to get Pisces to come home with you”, “Reasons NOT to dump: Virgo”, or “The zodiac sign flaws: Taurus”, hit follow now.
