Radical Reposts: Humor’s in Season--for Any Reason!


Laughing at How the Tribe of 12 Do Things

If I say Twitter, do you think I'm giggling at you like a goofy schoolgirl—or do you start talking in a bunch of birdie buzz words like tweet, tweeps, or twoosh? Your tweet style from Aries to Pisces.

I got together with my wiseacre alter ego, Auntie Joyce, and we envisioned the favorite books of each zodiac sign. Feel free to disagree—or add to your sign's fave—in the Comments.

Like Lucy in the Peanuts cartoon who puts out her shingle asking 5 cents for Psychiatric Help, Auntie Joyce has donned her Dr. Dreamwork hat. Dr. Auntie J. is offering you a deal you can’t refuse at a price you can afford—free. Where else can you get her two-cents for what it’s worth? Here are some of her best mental health advice column comments. They come from around the zodiac, 12 diverse dreams and dreamers. Today we’ll cover Aries through Virgo—tomorrow, Libra through Pisces.

Libra Dream: I join and go to my e-mail daily, excited about the prospect of a new romance. After two weeks, there's not a single match. I wonder if I was too superficial, asking for tall, dark and handsome.

Laughs Any Time of the Year

Valentine’s Day (in a category all its own)
This is the time of year we tend to be fixated on synastry. You're probably poking around your beloved's chart right now, trying to figure out which of his or her many aspects to your planets are favorable.

There is comic relief to be found between the sneezes of the pollen sensitive, whatever their Astro-orientation. Here’s what I’ve observed on how the various zodiac signs "do" spring.

Tickle your eyes with these photos of the signs sunning themselves or otherwise behaving in their inimitable styles—under full-tilt rays.

Boo-ware of angry or cranky zodiacal creatures this Halloween season! They may be dressed as your husband, wife, lover, friend or children, but during this celebration of the dark side, be watchful of what goes bump in the night—or maybe in broad daylight!

What would happen if you threw a Halloween Scorp-off, a party where every one of the signs comes dressed as his or her version of Scorpio? Shore up your sides. This one’s a splitter!

Halloween Treat Break! Costumes I’ve Had the Nerve to Wear (28-Oct-11) I’ve been a Christmas tree (mixed holiday metaphors), The Purple People Eater (apologies to Sheb Wooley), Gilda from the Planet Glitz and my heroine Auntie Mame. How ‘bout you? What in someone’s astrology chart creates a passion for costume? If you know, don’t keep a mask on it. After all, I included pictures, embarrassing as they are.

Let’s get lore-id about the background of Halloween and its adjacent holidays, including All Soul’s Day and the discovery date of Chiron. Serious historical info delivered with tongue in cheek.


Let's face it. The holiday season can bring up old wounds like nobody's business, especially when you combine high stress with relatives. How many family fights have started at the holiday dinner table? Even when we vow to be on our best behavior, unresolved injuries, irritations, and family enmeshment can cause a person to go Scrooge without creative intervention. Here’s my suggestion. Shop their Chiron signs!
Ho-ho-hilarious from Aries to Pisces with a lot of wisdom and heart in-between.

Every holiday carol is likely to be loved by some signs more than others. I asked my alter ego, Auntie Joyce, to scratch her head and share her ideas and acerbic wit on which holiday tunes go with which singers in the zodiac.

The Twelve Days of Solstice—and Other Cracked Carols  (10-Dec-13) A classic rewritten for astrologers and astrology lovers, just in time for your Astro-group’s holiday party … or just for your own amusement.

Zodi-Yuks: New Year’s Resolutions from Aries to Pisces (26-Dec-10) Don’t know if any one of our zodiac characters can keep these, but they’re bound to keep you laughing.
