About Astro Poets

The viral Twitter account @poetastrologers sends up daily horoscopes in the most highbrow way possible—by turning them into absurdist poetry. Creators @DorotheaLasky and @alexdimitrov are “actual living poets,” regularly releasing their work with big-name publishers. Though their poetry is no joke, their tweets are pure hilarity, broadening the Zodiac to cover things like romantic interactions between different signs and satirical fortune-telling. Beginning only in November 2016, the Astro Poets have already earned well over 45K followers and a feature in W magazine. In a year that has been widely reviled, the Astro Poets aim is to “help people and also make them laugh”—we’re hoping the stars are willing to do the same.
