First Semester Horoscopes

Aquarius

Jan 21 – Feb 19

Saturn is intersecting with Jupiter for Aquarius this semester, leaving you full of energy and open to taking on new ideas in a way that sets your creative drive on fire. Make sure to sit at the front of the class and arrive ten minutes early to rule your notebook. Really relish in this creative and energetic burst, because the way Jupiter is travelling for you, you’re probably dropping out in semester two.

Pisces

Feb 20 – Mar 20

It’s a time of inquisitiveness for you with Pluto’s force playing strong for Aquarius. You’re probably going to be filled with burning questions during your first tutorial. Consider indulging in that classic Pisces inquisitiveness. For those Pisces with a Rising Taurus sign, your questions to your tutor may be perceived as stubborn or hard-headed, so try not to be too overbearing and remember to ease up after a while.

Aries

Mar 21 – Apr 20

Sorry, it doesn’t look good.

Taurus

Apr 21 – May 21

Your slow and steady nature and caution to commit to an idea without being 100% sure may be misconstrued by your classmates. Remember to reason solidly in class, otherwise you might be seen as the slow-thinker. Give others an ‘in’ to how your brain works, and the potentials for a Taurus as a debater might just be seen. Don’t join Socialist Alternative. The stars don’t say anything about that, it’s just good advice.

Gemini

May 22 – June 22

It’s a great time to make some friends in the first class of semester. Everyone is eager to forge new connections and not miss the boat in the coming months. Your fluid nature and ability to put your best face forward will come in handy this week. Be cautious about the second friend you make though – Mercury’s passage suggests they’re about to join Leisure.

Cancer

Jun 23 – Jul 23

Your time management skills are really going to be tested this semester. Ease up before diving head first into things and take a moment to remember your priorities. Your black moon is in transit with the third house – make sure to know where all the best toilets are on campus.

Leo

Jul 24 – Aug 23

You may have trouble handling your natural exuberance in this exciting new environment. Keep your urge to showboat in check – it won’t do you any favours amongst your new classmates. Forces acting on your natal sun suggest you’ll encounter another force vying for the limelight – if another student hits on the tutor you saw first, feel free to get salty.

Virgo

Aug 24 – Sep 23

You’re going to ace that surprise quiz in week two, but energies seem to be dipping in your personal life. Remember that your first year of uni is also meant to be fun, and make some friends without ignoring your old ones. You’ll find that keeping strong ties will pay off in the not-too-distant future; mainly when you need notes for PSYC1102.

Libra

Sep 24 – Oct 23

In typical Libran fashion, first semester is a bit of a balancing act for you. You’ll have to find ways to adapt to the new situations vying for your time and energy. Consider what activities you can let slide and put on the back burner while you concentrate. Like the useless membership for Psychos you signed up for on O-Day.

Scorpio

Oct 24 – Nov 22

Basically there’s something weird going on here with Chiron, and I couldn’t find where Mercury was on your chart but let’s assume it’s all good. It’s usually all good. Your class is gonna go great! Just try your best and make some new friends. Oh, when I looked on your chart Venus and Neptune overlapped and it looked a bit like a skull. I think that means good financial luck!

Sagittarius

Nov 23 – Dec 21

Network, network, network! It’s time to sow seeds and make yourself known around campus because you’ll be  fully fucked and running for Guild by second semester. Careful, though, because it’s going to bite you in the ass when another hack steals money again to move interstate.

Capricorn

Dec 22 – Jan 20

The transit of the wheel of fortune is in the house of personal growth right now. Coming to university may help you find your feet and really learn where your interests and priorities lie. Just say ‘yes’ to things for a little while and open yourself up to experience. You have to open the doors of opportunity for yourself, right now! You might as well, because UWA sure isn’t opening them for you.
