Anime genius Mamoru Hosoda portrays, in his latest picture, the beauty within day-to-day life through a child’s eyes.

From being told that you don’t get along with your boss because they’re a Virgo and you’re an Aries, to the world seemingly crashing down as Mercury goes retrograde, astrology has slowly been taking over mainstream conversation and culture.
