Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
You are known amongst your roommate(s) as needing to be busy. Between running from practice, to the library, to your job, you are exhausting yourself. Aries need the instant gratification of accomplishing task after task, because taking time to sort through feelings and political issues is terrifying to you. This week, Aries, try to not take on more than you can handle. Let loose, have fun over the weekend, and worry about Monday on Sunday for once. You owe it to yourself and your friends (they miss you)!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
Taurus are notoriously stubborn. When your roommate(s) want to try something new, take you to a new townhouse, or get involved in something on campus, you are the skeptic. You also are a skeptic when it comes to relationships: if they aren’t “the one” there is no sense in applying yourself. Take a leap of faith, Taurus. You may surprise yourself if you join the club, try a new house-party on Saturday night, or ask him/her out on a date (even if it’s just coffee at the Union.) This week, challenge yourself to get creative.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/20)
Geminis are the most adaptive of the signs. On campus, you are a social butterfly with multiple friend groups and have no problem being independent. This can make for an exhausting lifestyle, Gemini, as you find yourself constantly having to entertain with your imaginative chatter for each new group you encounter. This week, work on quality over quantity: work on the relationships and goals that serve you, and stop exerting energy into one’s that don’t. You will see an increase in valued friendships, less arguments with your roommate(s), and hopefully better test grades.
Cancer (6/21 to 7/22)
You have not been as committed to your health and wellness as you usually are, Cancer. Too much pizza at Cheney, once a week at the gym, going to bed at 3 AM, and going out three nights a week instead of one. Granted it was your friends 21st birthday last week and Halloweekend just passed, but STOP. Cancers are the most emotional of the signs, and you are reaching your nervous break. This week, get your life under control and prevent the inevitable. You are one to self-motivate, so do what you do best and JUST DO IT.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
Big plans this weekend, Leo? Going to see some buddies at another school, seeing your long-distance lover, or just heading home to spend time with your parents? Good. You have been having an impeccable semester here at Springfield as Leos are known for living in the moment, but maybe you have not been committing time to life outside of campus. Take this week to clean your room, make your roommate(s) dinner, and get your work done, Leo, so you can dedicate some quality time to the people you don’t have the luxury of seeing everyday. Safe travels!
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
You have been extra sensitive the past few weeks, Virgo. You typically hide your vulnerabilities but lately you have grown tired of pretending that everything is “ok” for the sake of everyone else. This week, take time to sort through those feelings, and set aside the daily demands that the world raises. This week is for YOUR mental health, because Springfield College misses your optimistic spirit and inventiveness. Like James Naismith once said, “Be strong in body, clean in mind, and lofty in ideals.”
Libra (9/23 to 10/22)
Libra, you are among the most charming and intellectual on campus. Your grades are excelling even though you feel like you’re drowning in work and you are sharing your success among the ones you love because you are one to raise people up with you. This week, Libra, keep spreading the positivity! Whatever you are doing is working. Your peers need guidance, and you have the heart to help.
Scorpio (10/23 to 11/21)
Things have been a bit rocky, Scorpio. You have been on an emotional roller coaster ride hopping from one relationship to the next and are having a hard time with rejection, as Scorpios are among the more jealous and possessive signs. Direct your efforts at the new club you’ve just joined or the Spring Break trip you have been meaning to plan. This week think ahead, not behind.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
Slow down Sagittarius, the sky isn’t falling. You are one to plan out every second of everyday, never skip a beat, and have every one of your roommates agendas memorized on top of it. WHY? Sagittarius, you have a keen sense of responsibility so you make countless checklists and reminders to keep everything in order, but this week your schedule needs to retire. Midterms are over, Thanksgiving is approaching, and Trump is still going to be president: this weekend you need to go out. Allow yourself to be surrounded by people who are just as overwhelmed as you, but are rewarding themselves with some freedom from the restrains of the agenda.
Capricorn (12/22 to 1/19)
Capricorn, this week is no time for a diet. Your roommate(s) have been ordering Dominos since the end of August and you have been SO good… too good. Gym six days a week and Cheney salad bar twice a day is impressive, but not fun. Encouraging good health and a balanced diet doesn’t mean you can’t get a tub of Ben and Jerry’s from the Pod tonight or order the Dominos on your student ID for once! This week, let loose.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
Much like Taurus, you are exceedingly stubborn Aquarius. Your work ethic has lacked lately and it is because of your pride temporarily interrupting your growth. Good news is, this is an easy fix. Remember why you came here in the first place and reevaluate your goals. You are not one to accept failure, so get a tutor or go to the Career Center and seek some guidance! The end game may be blurry right now, Aquarius, so allow the people who care about you to get you back on track this week. There is no shame in asking for some overdue help.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
Pisces, you are the most shy of the signs. You like your comfort zone and you are seeing your roommate(s) and friends growing increasingly tired of watching you sleep walk through the same routine while they are investing their time in extra-curricular activities. Maybe someone snapped at you that took you by surprise. Don’t take this lightly Pisces, take it as a wakeup call and use it as fuel. This week, apply yourself to the more fun things in life and stop living vicariously through your friends! Everyone has their own story, it’s time you had one too.
