Is it just me, or was 2018 not the most terrifying yet spiritually-liberating year you've ever experienced? Alright, IDK about you, but that's the best way to summarize my 2018 journey. In the meantime, however, I'm going to reveal the best part of your 2018, according to your zodiac sign, but first, let's talk about the key astrological themes, we were given no choice but to endure. Fact is, the cosmos play a major role in our lives, whether we like it or not, and it's important to acknowledge both their energy, and collective presence. Are you ready, my stargazing fam? Let's take it from the top.
The year kicked off with serious Saturn back in its home sign Capricorn, where it will remain until 2020. Saturn is Capricorn's planetary ruler, so this celestial body's plan was always strictly business. Capricorn represents all who are in authority, as well as our moral and social responsibility. Ring a bell? You can't deny that there's been a number of significant changes, within our country, since Saturn's debut entrance in Capricorn. Saturn, often referred to as the Lord of Karma, is the taskmaster of the cosmos. Its energy is ruthless, but incredibly righteous nonetheless. Saturn in Capricorn's motto is, "you only get as much out of life as you put into it."
Pluto, Scorpio's planetary ruler, was also traveling through ruthless Capricorn, destroying and rebuilding hierarchies, so expansive Jupiter's transition into Scorpio, simply made this cosmic reconstruction that much more vivid, and taboo-like. For instance, events such as the Me Too movement, where people all over the world started speaking up about sexual harassment and assault, were both shocking and incredibly liberating. In addition to that, rebellious Uranus made its transition into practical Taurus, and we were given an entirely different perspective on beauty. Granted, some of these events weren't the easiest, but change doesn't happen overnight.
Nevertheless, here's the best part of your 2018, based on your sign:
