Know that this yearn for comfort in past relationships will hold you back from experiencing present opportunities.
Selena is a sophomore studying journalism and anthropology. Her first experience with horoscopes was a common affair, reading the one’s on Facebook everyday at the age of 14. But, her interest manifested itself again by 16 and it was then she decided to try and write horoscopes herself. She studied what each sign and their houses meant in regards to planet position. She thinks horoscopes are to be taken lightly and that they are really fun to pay attention, so writing and reading them has become a passion of hers.
