The worst part of this year? Where do I begin? Well, aside from back-to-back eclipses and endless retrograde cycles, 2018 was the year of the metamorphosis, both personally and collectively speaking. Needless to say, I'm going to reveal the worst part of your 2018, according to your zodiac sign. Also, by no means am I trying to dwell on the past, on the contrary. This will serve as a reminder of both your strength and perseverance. Besides, at least it's over, right? It's time to sit back and take a trip down memory lane. Let's say goodbye for good, my stargazers.
While many of us would normally refer to 2018 as a year full of ups and downs, I can personally vouch that there were more downs than ups, and by a long shot. For instance, the shadowy energy of Jupiter in Scorpio will forever haunt our minds. This transit left a huge mark on 2018, and for so many reasons. Remember, Jupiter is the planet of abundance and expansion, and it also happens to be the largest planet in our solar system. Scorpio's energy, on the other hand, regenerates and transforms. This transit brought all that's hidden beneath the surface to light.
This is obviously not the only transit that left its mark, but rest assured, its energy was a key ingredient to the challenges we've endured. On another note, taskmaster Saturn entered Capricorn back in December 2017, so we experienced a year of intense restructuring, as Saturn is Capricorn's planetary ruler. It doesn't end there. Pluto the destroyer spent almost half the year retrograde, alongside Saturn in serious Capricorn. Now, given that Capricorn is a symbol of authority and social responsibility, we were given a glimpse at everything that's "morally wrong" in our world.
For instance, the combination of Jupiter in Scorpio, as well as Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn, sparked events such as Me Too, a movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault. See the correlation? Nevertheless, here's a closer look at the worst part of 2018, according to your zodiac sign:
Aries: You Doubted Your Courage
You came face-to-face with your fears this year, Aries. You were given no choice but to surrender and evolve, despite what your red-hot ego had to say about it.
Taurus: Your Values Changed Radically
There's nothing you loathe more than change, and well, the cosmos pulled the rug from beneath you, Taurus. What you once considered stable and comfortable, may or may not have been taken away from you.

The cosmos made space for you this year, but you weren't too thrilled with the results, Gemini. Sadly, some of these changes felt almost unbearable, but very much needed, right?

Sagittarius: You Really Doubted Yourself
You felt powerless, confused, and unworthy. With Pluto and Saturn in your second house of values, you experienced deep restructure in regards to your self worth.
Capricorn: You Were At War With Yourself
Despite both the spiritual and physical transformation you endured this year, you also came face-to-face with toxicity, and ruthless realities, you had no choice but to confront.

The cosmos forced you to change, Aquarius. You had to take a step back, and re-asses your entire life, from both a practical and spiritual perspective.
