With summer swirling sunshine all around us, there's no better time to up the ante of your social media game. I mean, if you're living your best life, there are either photos to prove it or it didn't happen. What better a way to show the world how great your life is than to post some gorgeously edited photos? Take note of the Lightroom 2018 preset you should use, according to your zodiac sign, because it'll make all your dreams of an envy-inspiring Instagram feed come true.
If you're on the more social media challenged side (like me), then figuring out which preset works best for your overall aesthetic can be a real headache. There are so many options to choose from, and mixing them up too often can make your feed appear mismatched. If you're looking for a guide, then your zodiac sign is always a good place to start. Containing your inherent qualities and preferences within its meaning, your zodiac sign can say so much about the overall vibe you give off. The same goes for your rising sign, since it reveals the way you express yourself to the public eye and cultivate your image. And, since the subconscious always flows through one's art, your moon sign has a lot to say about your taste in presets as well.
