Your winter break horoscopes

Aries: March 21-April 19

You’ll start off December with a whole lot of energy. You will feel very social, and it will be easy for you to get distracted. Be extra careful not to blow off preparing for finals! The darkness of wintertime can start to depress you as you are naturally attracted to vibrance and light. But around the middle of December, you’ll begin to feel optimistic and be able to let go of some of the things that have been bothering you. This optimism will carry you into the new year, and by the time the spring semester begins, you’ll feel determined to tackle any obstacle in your path.


Taurus: April 20–May 20

The stars are aligned for you to dominate your finals. Congrats! Group study sessions will be particularly helpful, so think about renting a study room, grabbing a few friends, and hitting the books together. Midway through December, you’ll feel ready to start a new project; whatever it may be, make sure to do the mundane, basic parts first. Now that you’ve laid the groundwork, you’ll be primed to achieve great things in January. By the time youcome back for next semester, that glow of accomplishment will carry you onto your next success.

Gemini: May 21–June 20

During finals week you will feel extra powerful and confident. Finals can be tough, but nothing will get you down! In mid-December, you’ll want to start planning for the future. Don’t be afraid to dream big, but make sure not to neglect the smaller steps along the way. In 2018, you’ll want to share things with other people that you may have been keeping secret. In the process, you may learn a new thing or two about yourself. You might have some difficulty getting back into the swing of things next semester, but if you believe in yourself, you can overcome anything.


Cancer: June 21–July 22

You will feel at your absolute best during finals week, but make sure you’re focusing as much of that energy on your studies as you are on hosting (really great) parties. This month, you’ll start thinking about ways you can improve yourself, and you’ll enter the new year with a solid plan for how to make 2018 the best year yet. Be careful not to get too caught up in telling other people about your plans and neglect actually following through with them. If you stick to your resolution for the first few weeks, a motivation boost in late January will carry you through the spring semester.


Leo: July 23–Aug. 22

You’re pretty susceptible to feelings of gloom in these dark winter months. During finals week, confiding in someone very close to you will help lift your spirits and give you the energy you need to make it through. Later in December, you’ll feel very creative and want to start a new project. After a few weeks of rumination, you should enlist others to help you make that project even greater than you could alone. With all that exciting, productive energy, you will come into the spring semester full of life and ready to take on anything!


Virgo: Aug. 23rd–Sept. 22

You will feel particularly organized and prepared during finals week. You’ll be committed to finishing off the semester in the best way you can. After winter break begins, think about getting back to things you may have been putting off. After all, you have all the time in the world now. In the new year, you will feel bubbly and sociable, so make the most of your last few weeks of freedom and spend time with a few close friends. Once the spring semester starts, you should focus on taking care of your body even with the stress of classes starting back up again.


Libra: Sept. 23–Oct. 22

If you ever need support during finals week, you should look to your friends. Their company will be especially helpful in the first weeks of December. Over the next few weeks, you will feel reflective and might be besieged by existential problems, but as long as you talk out your worries with your loved ones, everything will turn out all right. Around New Year’s, the tables will turn, and it will be you that your friends can rely on for personal help. Before the new semester begins, be sure to examine your own feelings closely, and do what you can to stay mentally healthy.


Scorpio: Oct. 23–Nov. 21

You’ll be motivated to follow your passions during finals week. Just be sure not to let your more mundane duties fall by the wayside. After the semester ends, be sure to take a few weeks to let yourself recuperate from all the hard work you did this fall — you deserve it. As 2018 begins, you’ll likely start to feel very strongly attracted to someone, which can mean a blossoming new friendship or a nascent love interest. You’ll know after about a month whether that relationship will last. Regardless of how it turns out, knowing will help you focus on the semester to come.


Sagittarius: Nov. 22–Dec. 21

You will come into December feeling full of positivity, which should make finals pretty easy for you. Once school is out, you might feel a little listless, but after a few weeks, you will find a new passion to break the cycle of boredom. In the new year, your personal life will be especially harmonious for a few weeks. As the new semester approaches, you’ll want to do something out-of-the-ordinary before you have to return to the routine of school. Go for it, but make sure you don’t get so caught up that you’re not prepared once classes return.

Capricorn: Dec. 22nd–Jan. 19

If you’ve been searching for the perfect balance between work and play, you’ll find it during finals week. Once classes let out, you will feel especially analytical and pragmatic, so cut out things from your life that waste your energy. In January, you will start to see the benefits of being more focused, and 2018 will look like one of your best years yet. As the new semester approaches, put your feet back on the ground and start your new classes on the right foot. If you’re motivated enough, you can do anything.


Aquarius: Jan. 20–Feb. 18

All the hard work you’ve put in this year will start to be recognized during finals week, which will put you in a positively glowing mood while you tackle your exams. In mid-December, you’ll start thinking about using your talents to benefit society as a whole. By the new year, you’ll want to start acting on that urge — this is a good time to volunteer for a new cause, or even start advocating for a cause of your own. At the end of January, you’ll experience a burst of confidence and determination, and you won’t let anything stand in the way of your success.


Pisces: Feb.19–March 20

You might feel extra sensitive and emotional during finals week but fret not because a true friend will be there for you to lean on. Right as the holiday season begins, your personal relationships will be imbued with a positive energy, so family gatherings should go smoothly. In the first week of 2018, you will start to become the “mom friend” of your social circle, and people will especially appreciate your kindness. If you forget to make a New Year’s resolution, late January is a perfect time to focus on self-improvement and getting rid of whatever is holding you back.
