An Ode to the … One … things that we really get involved in, hoping that you will really be there.
The stars have joined together in perfect harmony … to challenge us all.
Hundreds of millenia and astrologers of the Gen Z Astrology have created special meme accounts to help us in using our moon, the sun, and the rising signs to find out what is going on in our lives. Brutally honest reviews like @astromemequeen, @jakesastrology and @astrowonders give us their hilarious views on how we're doing or not. But you can also show how we can all use our zodiac signs to better relate.
As these zodiac meme accounts took on Instagram feeds, they shouted everything from scorpion moon-coping mechanisms to Libra's decision-making skills to cancer. Astrological memes are there for us to look at our lives in detail, but it will also allow us to laugh at our idiosyncrasies at the same time.
The personalities behind the accounts themselves also have different voices and form strong bonds with the followers who lovingly use them for frying. One such popular account is @notallgeminis. Courtney Perkins, who runs the account with nearly 400,000 followers, often uses pop culture references and pictograms to connect us to our emotions.
Perkins often also uses Instagram surveys to ask the tough questions – such as who is most likely to be cheated in a pyramid scheme, "fish or lion – or who is more willing to hang a full 7 minutes in a group "Aquarius or Pisces?" The answer to both questions was Pisces.
"I think people are looking for answers in every possible way – especially in the younger age group," Perkins said in an interview with Insider. "Most of us have given up religion, our government has failed us. This is something that is both a distraction and a way to understand the people around us in a truly ridiculous way that just feels just spiritual enough. "
No longer relegated to the horoscope backside of a newspaper, these memes can endure on all sorts of formats: pie charts, bingo cards, adaptations of already popular memes, mood boards and Screenshots of popular cartoons are all a fair game, but the message is the same in all accounts – we can understand the world and our roles in it by looking inside ourselves.
Sometimes this message can get mixed up if you're not an expert on Neptunes, Starworlds, or anything beyond your main sign. Memes fit our own lips.
Even though these sky-calling posts sometimes feel a bit too real, these memes speak of our innate need to be understood. No matter how small it may seem, these reports – and to some extent also astrology itself – have created a community of people capable of sharing similar emotional struggles together.
But hey, maybe that's just the cancer that keeps the fish moon in my moon.
