Horoscopes have returned! Along with the new year comes new plans for the series – we may switch up the format from time to time. Expect dos and don’ts, song recommendations, short poems and more this semester.

Aries (March 21 – April 20)

This week, focus on what you can do for yourself and less on what you can do for others.

Do: rest when you can

Don’t: take on “just one more” project

Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

It can be hard to remain open when all you want to do is crawl back into bed, but challenge yourself this week to be the bigger person.

Do: work on boundaries

Don’t: use your emotions as an excuse

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

If you find yourself wondering whether people actually like you this week, stop that line of thought before it turns ugly.

Do: buy yourself something nice

Don’t: exaggerate your personality for others

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Many signs feel emotional right now; find comfort in the fact that you’re not alone.

Do: finish something you started

Don’t: pretend to be OK

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 23)

Express tenderness this week with others – there’s humanity that you’re ignoring within your “enemies.”

Do: practice compassion

Don’t: call things “toxic” when they’re not

Virgo (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23)

Whether you love school or not, there’s something joyful about the beginning of a new semester – try to find that joy for yourself.

Do: read something exciting

Don’t: schedule yourself into a corner

Libra (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23)

Yes, you can be perceived as wishy-washy; yes, it might be inaccurate; yes, you should still be more blunt about your opinions.

Do: explain yourself clearly

Don’t: ignore your gut

Scorpio (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22)

You did not “reinvent” yourself over the new year, so please don’t start acting like it.

Do: challenge yourself

Don’t: become mysterious by default

Sagittarius (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21)

I encourage you to really run with the bulls this week and see where it takes you – you might end up enjoying yourself.

Do: play along

Don’t: avoid asking for help

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20)

Unlike Scorpio, be proud of your new year growth, and continue to check off those resolution boxes.

Do: run a lap around your house

Don’t: believe in life hacks

Aquarius (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19)

You’re all over the place this week; take a deep breath and center yourself.

Do: try some calming activities

Don’t: forget to water your plants

Pisces (Feb. 20 – March 20)

You can’t do it all, so don’t feel like you have to; on the other hand, you’re doing a darn good job with what you can do.

Do: try to solve a Rubik’s Cube

Don’t: reject admiration
