Yes, I Believe in Horoscopes And Here's Why You Should Too

Everything is connected.

Most people, if not all, know what their horoscope is (and the others act like they don’t when in reality, they do). Some people brush off their horoscope, asserting that it is a pointless title that is used to lure money from superstitious people. Others, however, base their lives around horoscopes.

They freak out when mercury is in retrograde, try to stick around people with compatible signs, and avoid people who mesh with their sign. And, if they’re really extreme, will base their days around what their horoscopes tell them to do and what to avoid.

I am one of the firm believers. I truly believe in the idea of horoscopes. I believe that we were born in a very specific spot in the universe, while we were a specific distance from the sun, and the moon had a specific alignment. I don’t believe that this idea is radical; I mean, to believe that all of the components of the universe are irrelevant and the only important aspects of the universe are human actions completely undermines the insanely complex universe that we are floating in.

The radical part, to most, is the idea that the alignment of the planets at our birth can somehow dictate our characteristics and daily events.

I believe in the fact that people who share star signs also share certain characteristics and tendencies, but I also believe that the commercialization of horoscopes has diffused the beauty of these connections into senseless “gullible human” traps.

The over dramatization and commercialization of horoscopes has caused so many people to steer away from the idea of spirituality and cosmic meaning. People, sensing attempts of people trying to steal their money, dismiss this “bizarre” idea of star signs, and, thus, assume that everything spiritual is false.

But the commercialization of horoscopes should not steer you away from the scientifically proven truth of cosmic significance.

Okay, avoiding tunnels one day because your horoscope told you to might be irrational; and, yes, quitting your job because you find out that your boss’ star sign is not compatible with yours may be self-sabotage -- you should not base your life off of what other people tell you, especially when that same person is simultaneously luring you to pay for something.

Actually looking deeply into the reasoning behind horoscopes and the deep truth of our universe, however, will only enrich your mind and allow you to thoroughly appreciate the world around you.

Since I have allowed myself to explore my spirituality and comprehend the “nonsensical” things, such as horoscopes, healing crystals, and vibrations, I have seen such immense growth in my character, gratitude, and happiness.

Your problems seem so much smaller once you wrap your head around the immense universe that you are currently floating in; the people around you bare more significance once you indulge in the concept of soul connections; and the life you desire becomes less materialistic once you realize that the world is so much bigger than the shoes that you are wearing.

I do not believe in horoscopes because I am trying to “hack life” or because I’m delusional; I believe in them because everything becomes so much more beautiful once you acknowledge all of the differen cosmic elements that have placed you in this exact spot, surrounded by specific people, living your exact life. Once you open yourself up to the idea that “everything happens for a reason,” you’ll begin to deeply appreciate the significance of everything around you.

Drive A Stick Shift, It’ll Save Your Life

Plus, it's more fun.

158

Most everyone drives an automatic transmission nowadays, however, there are some manual transmissions still out there. It's possible to get a new car, even a 2019, with a manual transmission, but only if you're willing to take on the beast. Learning on two pedals may have been hard in the beginning, but imagine having to re-learn how to drive with three pedals below your feet.

Things can get a little complicated and frustrating.

I got my driver's license in December 2016 and driving was a breeze until Christmas. That's when the beast showed up. This was a 2004 Scion XB with a manual transmission, also known as Baby. I left that car in the driveway and in my parents driving capabilities until January when I decided to take on the task of taming three pedals. Re-learning how to drive has never been so frustrating and so hard. I ditched my training in March but vowed to drive Baby unassisted by the time I turned 17, and I did.

Driving a stick shift has changed both my life and the way I drive, which may be a little for the worse. In many ways, driving a manual transmission has made me a better driver. It is easy to drive in autopilot when in an automatic because the car does all the work for you. You just barely have to press on the gas and the break; the car does the rest. So many people tend to use their cell phones, eat or even put their makeup on while driving down the highway at 75 miles per hour. It doesn't even seem dangerous to us anymore. But now step into the driver's seat of a stick shift, and things don't get done on their own. You have to downshift and press the brake when you come to a stop, which you need both hands for. You can't text and drive, eat and drive, or do anything and drive. Both hands have to be free, one on the wheel and the other on the shifter. With this setup, people have to pay attention to what is happening around them and be able to react within a moment's notice so they can shift into the proper gear for the situation. Not being able to go into autopilot when I drive has allowed me to see upcoming situations as they happen and I am better prepared to deal with them.

Overall, you'll be a safer driver and a cooler person if you know how to drive a manual transmission.
