Survive Law has taken the liberty of interpreting the stars so you don’t have to. Read our second edition of Lawroscopes and find out your legal destiny! Missed last month’s divinations? Catch up on October here.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22)
Scorpios come through because this month is all about you. Scorpios are known for their passion and intelligence, and this month will see these traits shine just in time for finals! Not to worry! People around you will notice your aura and you’ll be rewarded for putting these traits to good use, whether with new friendship or an awesome grade.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 22)
With Scorpio rising this month, you might encounter some unexpected hurdles. That neatly piled stack of completed past exam papers may topple over, creating a mess all over your bedroom floor. Whether it be in your exam preparation, the next mooting competition, or a budding romance with your learned friend, you’ll encounter a hurdle somewhere along the way. How does one prepare for the unexpected you might ask? PPPPP - Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
You may have trouble speaking what’s on your mind this month and not feel up to communicating with your study group buddies who still don’t get the difference between an Old System mortgage and Torrens title mortgage after you’ve explained it for the 50th time. Wait it out and try and explain it in different terms - we all know you’re bright beyond your years so break it down for the layman, Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You like seeing everything as a challenge and won’t stand for boredom. This month, you may find a few instances where you find yourself bored with the mundanity of daily life. Be patient and take these instances of ‘boredom’ as a blessing - when assessments, re-enrolment and timetabling threaten to overwhelm you, you’ll be glad you took it easy.
Pisces (February 18 - March 20)
There may be some unexpected communication from an old friend or old study buddy this month, Pisces. Stay alert. Whilst you may welcome this reconciliation, be wary that that long-lost “friend” is just after your scaffolds for that exam they have in two days.
Aries (March 20 - April 20)
When the new moon comes around on 7 November, it’ll all be about good friends and good vibes. Exam season? Just a passing phase. Keep that positive energy going and spread it to those around you. Your Taurus friend labouring away at their 4,000 word take-home exam until midnight in the law library may need your energy.
Taurus (April 20 - May 21)
When you are disrespected in some way and become hurt, you tend to close yourself off to others and repress your emotions. Remember when you got a mark of 55 for that assignment you spent 4 hours on the day before it was due, and you felt so slighted that you refused to look your tutor in the eye for weeks? It’s important to take your setbacks on the chin and use your personal disappointments as opportunities for growth and learning!
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Oh, Gemini! You’re ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, and can thus become bored easily without adequate action to stimulate your mind. This month, you’re abounding with energy. Your challenge is to slow down, direct small bursts of energy into your favourite pastimes - whether that be arts and craft, socialising or exercising - leaving just enough energy for focused study. This will serve you well - your fun and playful nature will alleviate the suffering of revising pure economic loss or provisions of the Corporations Act.
Cancer (June 21 - July 23)
As we alluded to last month, the past tends to cling onto you like a wet shirt. The struggle continues in November. Given Cancer is ruled by the Moon, you are highly sensitive and are sometimes too often governed by your emotions, even in the face of reason. In fact, you’re a bit of a ‘glass cannon’. Sometimes you need to withdraw, either to recuperate or to protect others from your volatility - but don’t overlook the efficacy of study groups. Don’t go through this exam period on your lonesome!
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Naturally adventurous (and possibly overconfident) as you are, some of your choices are a bit more dangerous than you think. Consider your next moves very carefully and cautiously, prioritise your own wellbeing and that of the people you care for. If you’re thinking of having a big night out this weekend, just keep in mind that you don’t want to have to sacrifice the next day of potential productivity.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
As we divined last month, Virgo, you may have gotten bogged down in trying to make your notes look readable without actually reading them. Hopefully you’ve spent some time looking at the bigger picture. Your challenge this month is to accept your feelings as valid, true and relevant. Trust your gut when you conclude that essay or problem question, and write with conviction! Markers can sense fear from a mile away.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
Sometime during this emotionally taxing exam period, your natural charm will make someone’s day. Your strong sense of justice and rationality will bode well for analysing causes of action in a problem question from multiple perspectives, but your indecision may bode ill for coming to a firm conclusion! Whatever you do, don’t forget the ‘C’ (that is, conclusion) in ‘IRAC’!
