If you feel like absolute shit today at least you can blame it on the stars
You witchy bitches already KNOW
by Katie Way
If you woke up with that wrong-side-of-the-bed feeling this morning and pinned it on being faintly hungover or flawed on a personal level, don't worry: it's not you, it's just the planets. Again.
Today is the shortest day of the year on the Northern Hemisphere because of the Earth's orbit around the sun (or some science shit), which means it's also the winter solstice.
What that means is there's some powerful energy flowing right now. Pagans, druids and your weird aunt on Facebook all celebrate this day as a marker of the lowest point of the year — it's exciting because things are only gonna get better.
In honor of the winter solstice I also will be cold, distant & filled with darkness.

But according to Newsweek, some of the more mystically inclined among us believe this year's solstice is going to weigh particularly heavy on us, due to the fact that it's occurring at the same time as two major astrological events: the last day of Mercury in retrograde and the transition from fun-loving Sagittarius season to stern, self-serious Capricorn season.
What does that mean? Apparently, the fact that all of these events are happening at once could explain why you're feeling "limited and constrained" today, or extra stressed about taking care of your daily responsibilities.
So basically, if you feel like trash and like you're drowning in all of the things you need to get done (I still need to buy my dad a Christmas present! Fuck!), don't worry — you're not alone.
We're all living under this same shitty sky, and whether we're willing to admit it or not, it affects us all.

QUIZ: Plan a sexy vacation and we’ll tell you how far you’d get on The Bachelor
Don’t worry, you get internet clout no matter what
by Una Dabiero
So you're on The Bachelor and you're fighting with like, 20 other girls for the attention of a walking, talking crewcut. It kinda seems like this show was scripted in 1972, but you're on it to find love — or at least grow your Instagram following trying. The Bachelor is serious. It breaks people, makes…
Every thought you’ll have that proves you’re turning into your mom
You inspect fruit before purchasing it
by Caroline Phinney
I used to define being an adult differently. I always thought you just knew you were there when none of your interests made you happy anymore and you stuck to a routine because it's the only thing you knew how to do. Now that I'm here, I know it's so much more than that. Here's…
