I read today that the best sign that you have coupled with the right person is if you laugh often together. This makes sense. However, there’s all different kinds of humor; for instance, some people think “bathroom” humor is hilarious and I run like the devil is chasing me when I hear toilet jokes. My brother’s a Sadge, he is the worst! I’m a Virgo, so my sense of humor runs towards irony. Not a fan of sarcasm. See how difficult it can get? So many different funny bones.
One thing I’ve noticed is that if there is good synastry between one person’s Mercury and the other’s Jupiter, they share a similar sense of humor. This is really helpful when hard times hit; a shared sense of humor can lift you up out of potentially depressing situation. If you’re really lucky, the other person will have the ability to diffuse your anger over situations simply by making you see the light side of things!
Some people bond over their “pain stories”; others bond over their funny stories. Of the two, the one more likely to go the distance is the couple who laugh together. When I envision growing older with someone, it always includes the scenario of giggling over inside jokes that no one but he and I understand. I have Mercury/Pluto!
What makes you laugh? Do you have the funny bone with your partner?
