Horoscopes usually regale us with glowing tales of future love, wealth, and prosperity. One artist, however, has a different interpretation of what the stars are trying to tell us, and it’s a little less frilly.
Shitty Horoscopes is the brainchild of Toronto-based Amrit Brar, also known as ‘Musterni.’ Unfolding on Tumblr since 2015 and culminating in the recent release of a Kickstarter-funded 13-chapter book, the project turns the shortcomings and darker sides of each zodiac sign into brief but poignant poems, accompanied by delightfully creepy drawings of decorated skeletal remains. Brutally honest, yet instantly relatable, Brar’s astrological messages read like a wine-induced 3AM conversation with your best friend, which is probably why her Tumblr fans just keep demanding more and more.
Scroll down, find your sign, and have a laugh at the intricacies of our psyche that may or may not be influenced by the planets moving around us.
