Survive Law has taken the liberty of interpreting the stars so you don’t have to. Read our May edition of 2019 Lawroscopes and find out your legal destiny! Missed last month’s divinations? Catch up on April here.
Taurus (April 20 - May 21)
It’s your birthday month, Taurus, and there’s nothing better than all the stars aligning to celebrate you. The cosmos tells that there’ll be plenty for you to celebrate this month: mid-sem results, a law school romance on the horizon, new friendships!*
Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Gemini, with only a couple of weeks left in the semester, hang in there. There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. As in, the light of dawn when you emerge from the library at 6 am after submitting that take-home.
Cancer (June 21 - July 23)
Remember when you told yourself that this was going to be your year? That you’d get it together and do all your readings week-to-week and start assignments as soon as they were released? If this semester went pear-shaped, don’t panic. If worse comes to worst, make sure you leave around three or four days to do practice questions.
Leo (July 23 - August 23)
Leo, you’ve got a natural charisma about you. Don’t be afraid to let your personality show, even in professional contexts.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
If the chaos of mid-sems muddled your brain, take this opportunity to recover your mind, body and soul with some LAWga. That’s yoga, but the law student version where the solitude of meditation gives you time alone with your stressful, anxious thoughts. Cue internal screaming.
Libra (September 23 - October 23)
It’s time for you to shake up the way you study. Read your notes aloud to your dog. Tape your notes to the back of your toilet door. Stick your notes to your bedroom ceiling so you start and end your day with law! What fun.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22)
This month, Jupiter’s optimism and confidence is entering your first house of self, and Neptune your passionate fifth house. In lay terms, use the law to spice up your sex life - R v Brown, anyone?!
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 22)
Hardworking and tireless, you’re prone to running on fumes. No, we don’t mean the stench of despair and half-eaten pad thai in the law library. Give it a rest, Sagittarius!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)
In May, you’ll learn information or have conversations that really bring you deeper understanding of a multi-layered situation. This might mean Old System equitable mortgages will finally click. Or you can practice applying the hearsay, opinion and credibility rules to the tea being spilt in your five-way call with the girls about the biggest law school couple breaking up
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarius is a very wet sign. You know what that means because it happens every year. It means weekly tears, lamenting not having done your readings during the semester. Fear not: if you’re in this position, heed some advice from a tutor.
Pisces (February 18 - March 20)
Pisces, what do you want to be known for? Revue? Gunning your classes with your stellar notes? Being a law society socialite? Or, better yet - and I know it’s hard but bear with me - maybe your identity and self-worth shouldn’t be wholly grounded in law school! But what do I know? I’m just a listicle writer.
Aries (March 20 - April 20)
Explore your options. You have more freedom than you can imagine. You can slave away in a commercial law firm or even consider inhumane working hours in management consulting. The possibilities are endless. (In all seriousness, Beyond Law’s Law Graduate Job Market Map lays out the different sectors - and organisations within them - where law degrees are highly sought after).
*We assume no responsibility or liability if you have, in fact, nothing to celebrate this month.
