For some of us, there's nothing funny about winter. The sky turns a constant bleary gray, the wind is so biting that it sinks its teeth into your skin, and the snow is only cute at first. All you can do is brace yourself for the cold and pray for spring. But come on, are we just gonna forget about every other thing about winter that's beautiful? Let's talk about your favorite thing about winter, according to your zodiac sign, because it might just help you remember.
Even though the clouds are dark and melancholy, and you find yourself spending way too much time indoors, who can deny the fact that winter is literally magic? All difficulties aside, winter, to me, is when we're made to understand that all things are made of impermanence. However, in the midst of so much mortality, the natural world always rises again and is reborn once spring arrives. In the meantime, you're called to explore the deepest and furthest reaches of yourself. For all the sunshine in life, there are just as many shadows. Winter is that shadow. However, its glistening elegance proves that there's nothing ugly about a shadow.
