Take care of yourself in the coming weeks. Finals will overwhelm even the best of us. The solar eclipse and new moon in Sagittarius will occur on Saturday, bringing us hope, courage and confidence. Stay hydrated and get adequate sleep; your body and mind will thank you.


Keep doing your best! It may seem like there isn’t an end to your stress insight, but be reassured that there is— just not immediately. You’ll be OK as long as you continue to put forth your best efforts.


Do you feel bored with life? Try out something fun and new to counteract this. Opportunities for fun are still scarce as we try to exit this pandemic, so the extent of your adventures may only be planning something for the future.


You’re naturally very giving. This is a good thing; however, don’t give too much of yourself to other people or other causes. Save some of this generosity and kindness for yourself for when days are rough. 


Do you yearn to be home? Maybe the weather or your classes have you feeling dejected. The easiest solution may seem to be to curl up and nap all day, but I encourage you to find a different path out of this slump.


Your strength may be wavering. After so much time and dedication you’ve given to your various duties, you likely want to slow down and rest. Take a break! You’ve earned it. Then, keep chugging along.


You’re very smart. In fact, often you’ll let your intelligence become a crutch because you believe it’s easier that way. Try following your intuition this week; think with your gut instead of your head.


The holiday season will have you craving comfort. Seek out this comfort however you please, but especially in the form of food. Try making a classic homey dish and putting on a movie that puts you in the holiday spirit.


Vulnerability can be hard. You don’t have to rely on comedy to express yourself. People who genuinely care about you will understand once you let your guard down. Find tenderness within yourself and others.


Happy birth season! Even if you do feel older on your birthday, you know you still have a lot to learn. The world is so vast and unknowable, and you must be OK with simply putting one foot in front of the other when trying to understand it all. 


Prepare yourself for socialization. You’ve been wanting to reconnect with your friends, and now is the time. You don’t need to initiate anything; your loved ones will likely be so excited to see you that they’ll do all the work for you.


Don’t beat yourself up over things you can’t control. It’s unproductive and harmful. Focus on what you excel at, and perhaps you’ll discover a different approach to solving the problems you may currently have.


Are you seeking freedom? Perhaps the holidays are unkind to your mental health, causing you to feel claustrophobic. If that’s the case, sometimes the best remedy is breathing in the air of the outdoors. Go out and adventure!
