Law Student Horoscopes
Wondering what’s in store for you this academic year? Here are your law student stars for 2013…
Aries (21 March – 20 April)
Your stars indicate that you are infamous for listening to lecture recordings the last minute. Ensure that you allocate your time wisely so you can enjoy streaming television series online without the guilt of unwritten notes haunting your dreams.
If you don’t start preparing your notes early, manipulative Saturn means that your exam block will be a time of desolation and intense revision. Avoid late public transport on the 3rd of April if you are to make the most of a pre-planned study session.
Taurus (21 April – 21 May)
Technological obstacles ensure a rough start to the semester but don’t you worry because a back up copy saves the day and means that you’ll be able to go on business as usual.
You’ll be able to see the bigger picture and view your degree with some perspective as the Moon activates Pluto, driving you to begin exploring career prospects with a serious attitude.
Gemini (22 May – 21 June)
Neptune says it’s okay to give your number to the cute barista working at your university’s coffee shop, but Neptune also urges you to improve your revision strategies if you’re going to make any improvements to your GPA this semester.
Late in the year you will decide not to do a practice exam because you’ve “got it covered.” Do not listen to your instincts and opt for practice questions and minimal partying around October.
Cancer (22 June – 23 July)
In May you’ll begin to panic that you haven’t done enough reading, but never fear, your stars emphasise that time will be on your side due to a day where you decide that 10 minutes late to class is just too shameful to bear and you opt to study in the library instead.
A lucky moon in Mars indicates that this year is your year of empowerment and courage; don’t listen to what others say and pave your own path for a fulfilling career.
Leo (24 July – 23 August)
Leo, you’re charismatic and stress-free the majority of the time and this relaxed attitude puts you in good stead for those job applications you’ll be writing in 2013. This year is your breakthrough year according to a lucky moon in Jupiter.
However, be careful what you wish for and learn to value the opinions of others as an argument with a co-worker lands you in hot water around mid-year.
Virgo (24 August – 23 September)
This year you continue being a perfectionist about your studies, your serious approach means that a moral dilemma sees you stumped on the 8th of October. Use your inventive talents to explore issues deeper and take problem questions more seriously. This year you will have to learn not to be discouraged by failure/rejection around exam time.
A work related incident on April 24 sees you unable to look a certain co-worker directly in the eye for a few weeks.
Libra (24 September – 23 October)
Libra, you’re cool, calm and collected at the best of times, but when you realise that your CV is looking a little crumby it’s best to focus on the positives. This year will be the year you decide to partake in some more extra-curricular activities and as a result, make a large group of new friends (did someone say, study groups?).
Work and family commitments tend to weigh you down, and this year you need to learn to stop being a people pleaser and say “NO.”
Scorpio (24 October – 22 November)
You’re usually motivated and practical but this year you tend to see the negatives and need a new reason to stay positive and determined. Although you are generally conservative and ambitious, letting nothing stop you from reaching your goals, this year opens a new chapter for you, welcoming a new life phase.
A lucky moon in Saturn urges you to take risks and try things you wouldn’t normally – volunteering for a community legal centre and applying for internships at off-kilter boutique firms.
Sagittarius (23 November – 21 December)
Oh, Sagittarius you look pretty burnt out. Your impulsive and inquisitive nature means that you need constant exposure to new environments and travel in order to stay positive and collected. Take an impulsive mid-semester trip to Fiji and over a coconut-flavoured cocktail your qualms with your degree will be quickly resolved.
As for your studies, perhaps mixing it up by doing your readings in the local park, rearranging your study space or purchasing a brand new desk is exactly the antidote for your flighty spirit.
Capricorn (22 December – 20 January)
The full moon activates wisdom in Capricorn as you head into the middle of semester one. It warns you that an endless stream of Red Bull and decaf might sound tantalising but good health and plenty of rest is needed to comprehend the lecturer who mumbles and fumbles their way through PowerPoint slides.
A playful Libran will try to distract you from your studies around mid-August – ignorance and a strong will are bliss.
Aquarius (21 January – 19 February)
In June you will face a stationery shortage, ensuring that during the mid-year sales you opt to stock up on highlighters and pens as low ink levels cause a tutorial to end in confusion (and potentially, tears).
In September you avoid a confusing High Court ratio by attending to beers in the university bar. This break is much needed and may mark the beginning of a helpful law school friendship that could result in not only beneficial exam notes, but also perhaps a future business partnership.
Pisces (20 February – 20 March)
A keen interest in engineering rears its ugly head in November and despite interventions from close friends you seem to think that you’ve hit a potential stroke of genius, which could result in a degree change. Read Michael Kirby’s autobiography as Mars progresses and all of your doubts will subside by the end of semester two.
At the end of first semester you’ll face mortal embarrassment at law school drinks but this will only make you stronger and cause you to study harder in the following semester in order to redeem yourself.
