These horoscopes are for entertainment purposes only… and are… hopefully… entertaining.
December 22 – January 20
It’s starting to feel like spring!!! Graduation is just around the corner and you will continue to cruise to the end of the semester. Take some time to give gratitude to your colleagues who have been hard at work by your side this semester. When the going got tough, they stepped up and it took a lot out of them (and you). Make sure everyone is planning some form of time off or vacation in the near future–that’s what your vacation (and comp time) is for.

After reconnecting with your passion last month, it’s time to start making some commitments. Dream big! Where do you want to be 5 years from now? How can you make it happen. This is the perfect time to begin taking some of the small steps needed to set yourself up for success later. Make time for reconnecting with an old colleague who will give you unexpected and insightful advice. Your connections will reveal new opportunities for you. Grab them!

You have been in constant planning (and re-planning) mode for the better part of a year and now you finally get to take a breather. The semester is almost over and graduation season is on the horizon. It’s totally OKAY to coast a bit. You’ve definitely put in more than your fair share of hours lately. Take extended lunches. Enjoy a walk outside. It will be time well spent to help you recharge your batteries.

Remember there is a community of professionals who are rooting for you.

It’s time to finish off your planning for closing the halls. What a relief! It’s been an all around difficult semester and although it may be sad to see students go, it will be a welcome respite for you. Don’t worry about closing details too much as this will be one of the easiest slow-roll closings you’ve ever experienced. Enjoy it and smile even though no one can see what’s under your mask.

This month feels like the aftermath of a burst water pipe creating a cascading waterfall through your residence hall. It just feels like one thing after another. Don’t worry though, it’s almost May and everything will get instantly better. Get some floaties and a good lifeguard by your side and you’ll make it through just fine. Water off a duck’s back… Water off a duck’s back…

Your smooth sailing continues from the last month. Sure, it’s hectic, but not quite as crazy as it was at your height. April will give way to end of the year traditions.

Burning popcorn in a microwave. You’ll have a lot of false alarms this month, both literally and figuratively. This will require you to keep clarity and remember you goals. Be careful of needless distractions in your daily routine as they are rabbit holes that could leave you feeling exhausted. If you need to, you may want to write out some affirmations and goals and keep them by your work station. It will help.
