The 2018 Trend You Are, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
This year was a weird one.
Between everyone wanting to eat Tide Pods and the great Yanny/Laurel debate, the trends that took over 2018 were anything but ordinary.
Whether you participated in them or not, there's definitely one you relate to. Scroll below to discover the 2018 trend you are, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 20 – April 19): Bike Shorts
As the most active sign in the zodiac, you're always doing something. There's rarely ever a time when you're just lounging around, because you have about a million to-do tasks to complete every second of every hour. Heck, even when you're sleeping, you're dreaming about all you want to accomplish the next day. Because you're always on the go, it makes sense that you're bike shorts. This '80s fashion trend made a huge comeback this year, and for good reason. They're comfortable and can be worn with just about anything. Plus, they're less restricting for someone like you, Aries.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Bitcoin
Bitcoin might've been around for a while, but once it hit the mainstream, it became huge in the beginning of 2018. Everyone was investing in the cryptocurrency to make a lot of extra money as quickly as possible. If there's one thing you love, Taurus, it's making money as fast as you can. Sure, you're one to work hard to harvest the fruits of your labor, but if you can skip all that to become filthy rich, you'd do it in a heartbeat. We all know you probably found a way to make Bitcoin work for you and are likely reading this post from the private island you bought because of it.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Yanny/Laurel
The dress debate of 2018, Yanny/Laurel had everyone up in arms once again. Did the recording say Yanny? No, it definitely said Laurel… at least, we think. Who knows, but this totally represents you, Gemini. Like Yanny/Laurel, there are two different sides to you. And others will accept whichever facet of your personality they like best, whether that be Yanny or Laurel. It also speaks to your nature of never being too sure of yourself. Stop second-guessing yourself and go with your gut.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): 'Thank U, Next'
Though you have a tough exterior, you can't fool us, Cancer. We know deep down you're a very sensitive little being. You just need to protect yourself, so you don't go full Ariana Grande (a fellow Cancer queen)—experience a rough breakup, fall in love again, then break off that engagement, but write a truly iconic breakup song because of it all. We know we said not to do this, but who are we kidding? You've already been there, done that this year, which is why you're the human embodiment of "Thank U, Next." At least it's taught you to deal with your emotions in a healthier way, by writing chart-topping tunes instead of crying into a tub of ice cream.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Flossing
You're probably concerned we're discussing the act of flossing your teeth, but you couldn't be more wrong. We're talking about the viral dance move that everyone and their mom tried to learn in 2018. People spent days, weeks, even months trying to perfect this seemingly simple move. Once they did, they proudly boasted about their accomplishment to anyone who was willing to watch them floss. As the ultimate attention-seeker, you relate to flossing's attention-grabbing style. All eyes are on you when you floss, and really anytime you do anything. You are a Leo, after all.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Puppy-Shaped Ice Cream
You're perfect, Virgo. Okay, so you have a few faults, but you consider yourself to be the epitome of a perfect person. Everyone should really be looking to you for guidance, because you always know what to do in any given situation. The only 2018 trend that even comes close to your level of flawlessness is the puppy-shaped ice cream that took over the internet for a few months. It straight-up looked like someone was taking a spoon to a real dog and had everyone fooled—even dogs. To this day, people still get worried when they see videos of others digging in to this treat. It's also how most feel when you're around, completely on edge just wondering what you're judging them for today.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Fortnite
Fortnite was arguably the biggest game of the year. Everyone and anyone was playing it, which is why you're definitely Fortnite. You're an incredibly social being and love spending every second of your time with other people, whether they be strangers or your loved ones. Just as Fortnite has the power to unite even the most antisocial creatures, so do you. We hope you carry this energy into 2019 and find a way to bring together the world through peace and harmony somehow.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Watermelon Sushi
With you, everything is not as it seems. That's because you like to keep things oh so mysterious. What people see isn't always the truth, but it's the closest they'll get to figuring you out. If you haven't figured out why you're watermelon sushi, let's try this again—you disguise who you are from the real world, so no one ever knows the real you. Watermelon sushi may look like a regular ol' tuna roll, but it's far from it. And you, dear Scorpio, are far from ordinary.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Tide Pods
The practical jokester of the zodiac, you're always up to no good in the best way possible. You love to make people laugh through your bizarre sense of humor. While you usually rely on dad jokes, you've been known to pull a few pranks… and they usually go way too far. This is what happened with Tide Pods. They were just a joke that the internet blew way out of proportion. Nevertheless, we all had a good laugh because of it, and the Sagittarius who probably started this nonsense in the first place.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Crossbody Fanny Packs
Crossbody fanny packs were the fashion trend of 2018. They had a serious moment and proved they were here to stay, just like you, Capricorn. While many believe you to be a flash in the pan, you've proven time and time again that you're not just lucky, you're freaking talented. But the real reason you're this trend is because you're practical, reliable and the mom of the zodiac. No one rocks a fanny pack quite like a mom, a Capricorn or both.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb. 18): Activism Apparel
There's no sign more willing to do what it takes to change the world than you, Aquarius. Granted, you enjoy spending most of your free time alone, sheltered away from the outside world, but you do volunteer more than anyone. When you aren't volunteering, you can be seen sporting some sort of activism apparel. Though not technically a trend exclusive to 2018, it was one that blew up this year. Without a doubt, it was thanks in large part to people like you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): 'In My Feelings' Challenge
You're always in your feelings, Pisces, which is why you're the "In My Feelings" challenge. Drake is a Scorpio, but he does get along quite nicely with Pisces. You make for one perfect pair. Not to mention, you'd pull off something insanely elaborate like a choreographed dance number to ask someone out. You're a hopeless romantic who believes grand gestures are the way to go.
Because 2018 is almost over, we want to help you end the year on the best foot possible. Based on your zodiac sign, HERE's what you have to do before 2019 rolls around.
