What your sign should know as the fall semester commences

By Alexandra Lachine Editor-In-Chief

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22): This is your time to shine! A fresh semester is where you will thrive, and bright new supplies will help you embrace that. Don’t allow drama to bring you any unwelcome stress in class.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19): Success is your thing, so stay focused and prioritize in and out of class. Good karma will pay off if you consider volunteer work. Lots of new people are entering your life which will demand social balance.
Taurus (Apr. 21–May 20): Despite your usual dedication to knowledge and maintaining strong study habits, that may be more of a challenge this academic year. Focus on small goals first to make others more attainable. With luck from Jupiter, your social circle will grow.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22): You will find that alone time will be your key to success this semester. Allocate time for solo study sessions in the library and you’ll see academic improvement. Find peace in cutting out negativity to let in the light.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb.19): Uranus will only boost your creativity and thinking skills to raise that GPA. Watch out for any long term love interests to make a move this fall.
Gemini (May 21–June 20): A new wave of energy has taken you as you head into the fall semester. A healthy tip would be to use some of that energy toward exercise, which will also help relieve any school stress.
Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 22): The planets encourage you to embrace change this fall; take a new class, join a new club or even try out for a team. Don’t be afraid to help those in your life who may need it as well.
Pisces (Feb. 20–Mar. 20): Unlike some of your friends, you’re excited for the new semester. You’ve never been closer to reaching some of your goals, so keep working hard. Your mojo will attract some great new friendships as well.
Cancer (June 21–July 22): Your communication skills will soon boost as Mercury enters your mental sector in fall. Avoid any distractions by maintaining coded organization, such as colored binders, notes and notebooks. You’ll be thankful for it later!
Sagittarius (Nov. 23–Dec. 21): You’ll begin to notice hard work paying off this semester once you stay committed to your goals. Expect to gain respect in your extracurriculars as well. A steady relationship may be second to quality time with good friends.
Aries (Mar. 21–Apr. 20): This is your time to stay focused and sharp thanks to energy from Mars. Harvest that energy by setting goals, staying organized and challenging yourself in class to reap the rewards! Don’t get distracted by people that may pop back into your life to hinder your growth.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22): Balancing work, school and a social life may be difficult to get used to. But good grades and a strong income will make it worthwhile. Upcoming rough patches in relationships may force you to cut ties and focus on you.
