8 Astrology Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow
For memes, advice and more.
For zodiac experts and astrology amateurs alike, horoscopes are providing much-needed comfort during the coronavirus pandemic, a historic catastrophe that brings with it unprecedented levels of uncertainty and stress. Beyond astrology apps such as Co-Star and The Pattern, Instagram is also a treasure trove of zodiac-related content — both enthusiasts and bona-fide astrologers are taking to the social media platform with advice, predictions and memes, offering reassurance and laughs when we most need it.
Unsurprisingly, popular astrology app Co-Star has an Instagram — and it delivers. Specializing in startling accurate zodiac “bingo” and pinpointing each sign’s reaction to a specific situation, @costarastrology departs from Co-Star the app by focusing on humorous reads of each sign rather than delivering practicable suggestions.
For those equally obsessed with pop culture and astrology, @glossy_zodiac overlays aesthetic images, movie stills and shots of celebs with zodiac-specific captions. From Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” video to scenes from Mean Girls, there isn’t anything @glossy_zodiac can’t tie back to astrology.
Helmed by Jake Register, @jakesastrology posts a mix of informative videos (see: astrology AMA), horoscope roundups and relatable memes. The expert began diving into astrology in 2018 and quickly discovered that the practice goes far beyond simple sun signs and rising signs — now, his videos educate others on the complexities of astrology while his memes appeal to those looking for a quick laugh.
Nadine Head-Gordon, better known as Nadine Jane, got her start at Glossier, where co-workers referred to her as the in-house astrologer. Now, Jane runs @nadinejane_astrology, an account that offers succinct mantras, advice and explanations of astrological events, such as full moons. Jane’s uplifting words are packaged in soothing, aesthetically pleasing graphics, making it the perfect go-to when things get stressful.
