Auntie Joyce’s Astro-Aphorisms #2

© 2010 by Joyce Mason

Dear Radical Readers,

I wrote the first astro-aphorisms under the hair dryer at the beauty salon. I wasn’t sure I had another round in me. To find out, I replicated the conditions of the original experiment—opened up a few bottles of nail polish and hair color to scent the air with chemical thought provokers. Back home, it was hard to type with a hand-held dryer in one hand (it almost melted my earrings), but here are the results. I hope at least one of these gets a giggle out of you. It’ll be a home run if you laugh your aphorism off!

Your own Missed Manners,
Auntie Joyce


Aries: Easier done than said.

Taurus: Here today, here tomorrow.

Gemini: East is East, and West is West, and never the twin shall meet.

Cancer: Always cut the cords.

Leo: There’s nothing but you under the Sun.

Virgo: Words worth a thousand pictures …

Cultural Dictionary

aphorism [(af-uh-riz-uhm)]

A concise and often witty statement of wisdom or opinion, such as “Children should be seen and not heard,” or “People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.”

Libra: Flattery will get you everywhere.

Scorpio: Possession is 10/10ths of the law.

Sagittarius: When in Rome, do the Romans.

Capricorn: You pay for what you get.

Aquarius: Beware of geeks bearing gifts.

Pisces: Deceiving can be an appearance.

Oh the Sag one is perfect and the Aquarius one cracked me up. The Pisces one is right on! And, of course, the Capricorn one is exactly right!

Good ones, Auntie Joyce!

I had so much fun with with other post on astrobabble that I had to come back and read your other astro-aphorisms. I love the Aries one, it is so true. It is easier done than said (wink). I don't see the problem in that. Isn't our society efficiency oriented? So Aries would be a hero, no?
Btw, I could not find astro-aphorisms #1. I need some laugh today!

OK, Astrounboxed! (Reminds me of Robin Williams in his "Weapons of Self-Destruction" concert when he talks about opening a can of "whoop ass." Your screen name sounds like opening Pandora's box and lots of stars and astrobabble jump out, like a jack-in-the-box. Or those things that look like snakes and make you jump. LOL!)

Thanks for the reminder that I need to link Auntie’s Aphorisms #1 to #2. You also must read God Is Not An Aries. I like Aries. I have lots of Libra planets Aries complements, and a batch of my dearest friends, including my BFF, are Ramettes! They're all born the last week of March. Yes, our society cries for Aries. In life or computers, can you have too much ram? That's for each of us to figure out for ourselves.

Ahhhha! Haven't been this tickled in a hot minute! Funny- that virgo aphorism is one that has been stuck in my head for a couple of years now, never having seen it until this post... Virgos are I'm working on finding peace with my inner virgo as my name is virginia, virgo is intercepted in the 6th house in my natal and the ascendant in my prenatal chart...

Glad to know this hit your funny bone in a good way, Virginia. If you haven't already, read my article after which this blog was named, The Radical Virgo. It explains a lot! See the sidebar. It's linked under What Is a Radical Virgo? You might enjoy your inner virgo a lot more once you realize that there's a lot more to us than all that fussbudget and neat-freak hype. :) Thanks for stopping in. Hope to hear more from you.

Happy Virgoing,
