Aquarius (Jan. 20th - Feb. 18th)

For you, Aquarius, this year will be all about self discovery. 2017 brought many struggles and hardships that took a lot out of you. But fear not, 2018 is the year that those hardships help form you as a person. And that doesn't mean it's for the bad! For once, all the self doubt and questioning will come to an end. So be patient, your time is coming.

Pisces (Feb. 19th - Mar. 20th)

Pisces, let's be honest, 2017 definitely wasn't your year. But thankfully the stars aligned and this year is all about the major breakthrough you've been working so hard on. Not only will this breakthrough bring relief, but it'll provide you with so much optimism and hope and positivity for future occurring events. Nothing in bad spirits will come your way, so just breath.


Aries (Mar. 21st - Apr. 19th)

To say the least, this year will be BEYOND eventful. Expect your big dreams to be recognized in big ways. Nothing you do goes unnoticed Aries! Just make sure you don't ruin things for yourself by losing focus or making decisions that go against your own morals, no matter how hard that may be. Stay level headed and let things come your way.



Taurus (Apr. 20th - May 20th)

Alright Taurus, this is the year you need to hold on tight and embrace new, and sometimes scary, changes. But, don't be alarmed, keep going full speed and don't let a thing stop you. These changes will happen physically and mentally and unless you stop to really think about them, you won't have any idea they're occurring. Your 2018 is all about taking risks, so keep doing just that and you'll be fine! Who knows what kinds of things these changes could lead to.

Gemini (May 21st - Jun. 20th)

Gemini, it's no secret that you've lost your spark lately. But, have no fear, 2018 will be the breakthrough you needed to get back on track and start doing things the way you've always wanted them done. You're going to be blessed with optimism, confidence, and maybe your special someone. It's been a long time coming, so don't shy away. Now is your time.

Cancer (Jun. 21st - Jul. 22nd)

Cancer, you've been struggling with a relationship lately. Maybe is was a breakup, divorce, trying to re-kindle an old flame? Whatever it may be, you'll finally receive the clean slate you've been waiting for. 2018 will bring nothing but happiness and positivity, but don't question it! You have a tendency of ruining good, pure, spontaneous moments because you feel as though you need the answer to everything. Relax. Not everything has to make sense. Just wait.

Leo (Jul. 23rd - Aug. 22nd)

2017 for you, Leo, was a series of trial and error. As you welcome in the new year, maybe start the welcome the changes that you've been considering making. Who knows what it could do for you.

Virgo (Aug. 23rd - Sep. 22nd)

As a Virgo you tend to put off your needs and wants. You're so focused on pleasing everyone that you fail to realize that sometimes you yourself need a break. 2018 is your year to focus on you. You've got big changes coming up and the last thing you need to be concerned with is someone else's problems. Take a step back from what you consider your responsibilities and start thinking about what you need to do to be successful. This will most definitely be your year. You'll have to want it though.

Libra (Sep. 23rd - Oct. 22nd)

You've never been the type to let go of decisions and mistakes of the past, Libra. But 2018 will give you the refreshing start that you've needed. Sometimes it's better to not dwell on the past and just continue to move forward and make the best of what you've been given. As your outlook starts to change, so will those around you. Don't let that scare you, be open to new ideas and new people. You have no idea what, or who, might be in store for you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23rd - Nov. 21st)

Okay, Scorpio, this is the year you step out of your comfort zone and into the danger zone. Do not be afraid of what you haven't experienced, because you won't know what life is truly like until you give it your all. Remain open minded, and whatever you do, DO NOT CANCEL ON PLANS!!! This is your year for love, especially with someone you may already know. Give it time. After all, this is the year of the danger zone for you.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22nd - Dec. 21st)

Alright Sag, it's time for you to break out of your shell as well. But, not in the sense of experiences, we both know you have plenty of those. But try being more open to talking about yourself, being vulnerable and revealing about things that people may not know. You have this habit of pretending things never happened and that's holding you back from things that could have been. Although it's too late to go back and change things, give 2018 a shot. Your future will thank you for it later.

Capricorn (Dec. 22nd - Jan. 19th)

And last, but not least, Capricorn. This my friend, is the year of shutting up, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. In 2017 you had a bad habit of talking more than listening and it's caused you to miss a lot of opportunities. In 2018 let's try to hear people out before you decide to speak your truth. So many opportunities are coming you way and it would be a shame for you to miss them because you couldn't stop talking long enough to listen for the cue of greatness. So deep breaths dude, you're fine and this year is completely yours.

To The Person Who Feels Suicidal But Doesn't Want To Die

Suicidal thoughts are not black and white.
2631380

Everyone assumes that if you have suicidal thoughts that means you want to die.

From an outside perspective, suicidal thoughts are rarely looked into deeper than the surface level. Either you have suicidal thoughts and you want to die, or you don't have suicidal thoughts and you want to live. What most people don't understand is that people live in between those two statements, I for one am one of them.

I've had suicidal thoughts since I was a kid.

My first recollection of it was when I came home after school one day and got in trouble, and while I was just sitting in the dining room I kept thinking, “I wonder what it would be like to take a knife from the kitchen and just shove it into my stomach." I didn't want to die, or even hurt myself for that matter. But those thoughts haven't stopped since.

I've thought about going into the bathroom and taking every single pill I could find and just drifting to sleep and never waking back up, I've thought about hurting myself to take the pain away, just a few days ago on my way to work I thought about driving my car straight into a tree. But I didn't. Why? Because even though that urge was so strong, I didn't want to die. I still don't, I don't want my life to end.

I don't think I've ever told anyone about these feelings. I don't want others to worry because the first thing anyone thinks when you tell them you have thoughts about hurting or killing yourself is that you're absolutely going to do it and they begin to panic. Yes, I have suicidal thoughts, but I don't want to die.

It's a confusing feeling, it's a scary feeling.

When the depression takes over you feel like you aren't in control. It's like you're drowning.

Every bad memory, every single thing that hurt you, every bad thing you've ever done comes back and grabs you by the ankle and drags you back under the water just as you're about the reach the surface. It's suffocating and not being able to do anything about it.

The hardest part is you never know when these thoughts are going to come. Some days you're just so happy and can't believe how good your life is, and the very next day you could be alone in a dark room unable to see because of the tears welling up in your eyes and thinking you'd be better off dead.

You feel alone, you feel like a burden to everyone around you, you feel like the world would be better off without you. I wish it was something I could just turn off but I can't, no matter how hard I try.

These feelings come in waves.

It feels like you're swimming and the sun is shining and you're having a great time until a wave comes and sucks you under into the darkness of the water. No matter how hard you try to reach the surface again a new wave comes and hits you back under again, and again, and again.

And then it just stops.

But you never know when the next wave is going to come. You never know when you're going to be sucked back under.

I always wondered if I was the only one like this.

It didn't make any sense to me, how did I think about suicide so often but not want to die? But I was thinking about it in black and white, I thought I wasn't allowed to have those feelings since I wasn't going to act on them. But then I read articles much like this one and I realized I'm not the only one. Suicidal thoughts aren't black and white, and my feelings are valid.

To everyone who feels this way, you aren't alone.

I thought I was for the longest time, I thought I was the only one who felt this way and I didn't understand how I could feel this way. But please, I implore you to talk to someone, anyone, about the way you're feeling, whether it be a family member, significant other, a friend, a therapist.

My biggest mistake all these years was never telling anyone how I feel in fear that they would either brush me off because “who could be suicidal but not want to die?" or panic and try to commit me to a hospital or something. Writing this article has been the greatest feeling of relief I've felt in a long time, talking about it helps. I know it's scary to tell people how you're feeling, but you're not alone and you don't have to go through this alone.

Suicidal thoughts aren't black and white, your feelings are valid, and there are people here for you. You are not alone.

Sorry Guys, Girls Actually Want Attention From Other Girls

Who else knows fashion, beauty, style, or looks better than other females themselves?

Men are ya know, "great." We love 'em (somedays). Some girls cry over men, run their lives around men, and make life choices because of men.

But, why should we try to impress men? Men don't understand the time it takes to "beat our face" with makeup. Men don't understand the soreness our arms experienced to get these perfect curls. Some men don't understand how excited we are to score big in the Urban Outfitters clearance section.

Some ladies live by "beauty is pain." But sorry guys, they are not here to impress you.

Why would some ladies spend all the time, effort, and money for men, when some men can't distinguish mascara from lipgloss.

Women are trying to impress other women.

You ever get a compliment from a fellow female and they're like, "Girl, yes girl. The outfit, the hair, YES." Ladies understand and appreciate our efforts.

Do you think what ladies post on social media is to get men pouring in their DMs? No.

We are sharing pictures to inspire and create a group of women to be creative and stylish themselves. Us ladies are trying to build an empire of strong women, and we will not spend time just to look good for men.
