Missed last month’s divinations? Catch up on November here.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 22)
With summer break in full swing, the newfound freedom will tempt you to get out and explore. Take this opportunity to leave the nest; keep yourself busy with new hobbies because you might reconnect with old friends, meet new ones, and discover something in the world beyond the library.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
The holidays are a time where family gatherings are unavoidable, meaning last year’s clash with your xenophobic uncle is due for round two. Instead of jumping into another debate with him, try to be the diplomat instead of the warrior. In other words, holding your tongue and gritting your teeth might just make this family barbecue more bearable.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
No, you didn’t land a clerkship and you have a three month break looming ahead of you with a job where you’re only working one day a week and have no other commitments the other six days. If only you planned for this earlier. It may seem like you’re not doing much but focus on the positives instead of the negatives. More free time means more time to better yourself, plan ahead for uni next year and prepare for job applications in 2019.
Pisces (February 18 - March 20)
With semester two results being released this month, look out for friends who might require your support over the next few weeks. Some may be disappointed with their results and be in need of some TLC and extra attention. Your caring nature and willingness to listen will hold you in good stead.
Aries (March 20 - April 20)
As an Aries it’s in your nature to control everything you possibly can. This December, try to let go of that urge because you don’t always have the clearest view of the whole situation. Instead, take the opportunity to rediscover yourself this month: a busy year of 100% closed book exams, job applications and interviews and co-curriculars have distracted you from understanding yourself.
Taurus (April 20 - May 21)
This month’s new moon signals rebirth and a new day. Set out your goals for 2019 by taking the time to write them down. This will help you re-calibrate your priorities for next year. However, be wary of shooting too far ahead - we all know the feeling of making promises to ourselves that we know we can’t keep.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
It’s not in your nature to be alone or confined. One moment, you’re expressive and outgoing, and then in your feelings and serious the next. This summer, indulge in the books, music and adventure you’d been aching for throughout semester.
Cancer (June 21 - July 23)
As a Cancer, you have a predilection for home-based hobbies and intimate meals with friends. The hustle and bustle of law school may have left you a little drained but the holiday break will be an opportunity to gather with your nearest and dearest away from the noise.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
The Sun is your ruler, Leo. As such, you bring energy and stability to the world around you. Self-confident and driven, you’ll undoubtedly push through a disappointing mark or uncomfortable family holiday gathering. Your headstrong nature may lead you to argue with an equally opinionated Aries, so stay away from spicy legal debates over the dinner table.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Ever the perfectionist, you can be overly critical about everything, including yourself. If you receive an underwhelming mark, try to think about the whole year holistically: there’s always a way to rationalise your performance. Rein in your self-critical tendencies, but not too much - for it’s your constant discontent with your work that motivates you to grow academically.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
As a Libra, your element is air, or the intellect. You love using your mind to solve problems, so you must feel right at home in law school. A lack of intense intellectual stimulation over the summer might drive you nuts - so pick up a sudoku or a novel and get solving / reading.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22)
“I don’t need to control everything. I am free and peaceful”. This is your mantra. Nothing can wear you down, not even a disappointing mark or a quarrelsome extended family member. In fact, you thrive on obstacles because you love proving that you are unstoppable. This is a great mentality to close 2018 and open 2019 with.
