Emma wrote in the lengthy caption shared with her 70 million Instagram followers, “This is 33. Holy moly. Before 29, I hadn’t even heard of a Saturn Return as a concept. Let’s say that now I am well acquainted.”
Recounting her journey of self-discovery and growth, she continued, “I stepped away from my life – I learned to surf (badly), I rode some horses (that went better), I did a lot of therapy (YESS therapy!). My brother and I joined forces.”
“I adopted Sofia in Mexico, who seems to be an angel, not a dog. We filmed a Harry Potter reunion. I said goodbye to my Grandma and Grandpa. I retraced my steps,” she added.
Celebrating her achievements, Watson recounted, “I started a women’s environmental investment fund. I played Pickleball with @sugarrayleonard, and I even played golf and tried to make all my girlfriends learn too.”
Despite some setbacks, such as cutting her thumbnails while cooking, Watson shared that her journey also included a dedication to self-care, letting go of things that no longer served her, and embracing new habits, like incorporating more greens into her diet.
