Missed last month’s divinations? Catch up on December here.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
Capricorns, although subscribing to the ‘new year, new me’ mantra may seem too basic for you, this phrase actually has some substance. Take this month as an opportunity to start afresh and finally get around to those things that have been sitting on your to-do list. Buy those textbooks, read in advance, start drafting those cover letters for clerkships, and catch up on some legal news!
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
You may have had a sluggish start to the year. You may still even be nursing your NYE hangover. However, January is the month to take action and finally bring your ideas to life. But a word of caution: think before you speak and before you make any hard decisions.
Pisces (February 18 - March 20)
This month, you may find a newfound improvement in the way you communicate with those around you. Prepare for January to be a busy month for you socially - whether it be networking, catching up with friends, spending time with family, or marketing your newest start-up idea.
Aries (March 20 - April 20)
The new year signals a chance to start afresh and set new goals for the year ahead. If you know the changes you need to make in your life in order to achieve those goals, now is the time to put in some genuine effort to make those changes. Enlist the help of your friends or even a mentor so you can get the support you need.
Taurus (April 20 - May 21)
You’ve been reflecting on the past year and certain aspects of your life: work, relationships, physical and mental health, spending habits. Whatever it is, you might find yourself thinking in the long-term. This month is the time to nurture your relationships with your colleagues, friends, and even yourself so that you can maximise your potential for the upcoming semester!
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Good news! Geminis, the Leo full moon in the middle of January marks the end of a prolonged phase where you may have felt that your confidence has been waning. It’s time for you to regain that confidence and let your star shine. Be secure in who you are and what you know - it’s always enough. Now put your hand up in that tutorial, especially if you’re wrong (you learn better by making mistakes!).
Cancer (June 21 - July 23)
With multiple foreign objects aimed towards Uranus, it’s time to set boundaries with your personal relationships, Cancer! Stamp out those snakes who only pop up when they need urgent answers to forthcoming tutorial questions. Uranus, your guide planet, moves into Aries this week, which could deepen the force of desire. You’re filled with passion, whether for romance, business opportunities, or academic success. Get it, queen!
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
2018 really did a number on you, Leo, and all those late nights studying have come to collect their debt. The cosmos are offering you the rare chance this summer to reconfigure your lifestyle. Venus shifts into your sector of romance and creativity: perhaps now is the time to revamp your aesthetic or put yourself out there (according to a cyber-dating expert, Sunday 6th January was the busiest time of year for online dating). No to studying alone; yes to cross-checking your notes and practice responses with your S.O.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
It’s time for your overdue recognition, Virgo. As Mars moves into Aries for six weeks, take this opportunity to sweep away impediments to your best interests. Clean that table, book that therapist, write that CV: it’s time to reach your full potential. Ablaze with inspiration for the New Year, within you is a restlessness which you must embrace: this energy will help you achieve your career and university goals.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
The sun is moving into your domestic sector, aligning with prudent Saturn. What does that mean, you ask? It means get organised?! Buy that 2019 planner or diary, download that Trello app, get your hands on anything that’ll help you get your life in order. 2018 was a bit of a mess, and you need so desperately to take advantage of this fresh start.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22)
Your mind’s working overtime every single day: you’re constantly alert to trivial matters. You really need to read The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck, because you need to recognise when something is actually important! Indeed, the new year is an opportunity to focus on your wellness goals. Mars is entering your sector of lifestyle and well-being: things need to change. Dispose of old habits and embrace more life-enhancing ones.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 22)
You’re feeling a little spontaneous, Sagittarius, but it’s also important to think practically, particularly with your finances. We know the trade-off is appealing: law textbooks or post-Christmas clearance sales? Since Venus is entering your sign this week, you’re tempted to enhance your image. However, do so in moderation. Don’t forget how you needed to constantly reborrow that textbook from the 2-hour section, and how your primary textbook got recalled literally a week into semester. You can’t live like that anymore!
