Ah yes, midterms: Those things we all love to hate. It’s a stressful time in the semester, but fret not, The McGill Tribune is here to help you navigate the piles of exams, essays, lab reports, group projects, and personal drama that the end of February promises to deliver.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Trust your internal fire to guide you through exams, Aries; it’s a surprising motivator that will bring you success! Resting over the break will be crucial as March promises to be a challenging time of transition.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Midterms will not be easy for you, Taurus, but don’t despair. Focus on self-care to get you through the remainder of the semester. Finals, on the other hand, will be a piece of cake—you will ace them as Jupiter moves into Taurus, giving you a burst of energy to tackle the coming months. Juno enters Taurus on March 11, so whatever romantic relationship you may have will enter a rough patch.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): The end of February and March will be a period of reprieve, Gemini, since none of your planets are in retrograde. You will do as well as you expected in your midterms, and a promotion at work will lift your spirits. Focus on your current relationships—they need some heavy lifting since you disappeared to focus on school.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Cancer, you took on a lot of responsibility these past couple of months and it has been weighing you down. However, your depleted energy won’t affect your midterm grades, and with Pisces season underway, new adventures will breathe some life back into you.
Leo (July 23-August 22): You’re quick to make decisions, Leo, and sometimes forget to think about the long-term effects of choosing to party instead of study. Others appreciate your warmth and hospitality, but this does not bode well for exams. You’re going to struggle, be forewarned!
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Mercury was in retrograde throughout January, so it hasn’t been an easy start to the year for you. The recently lifted weight from your shoulders will make you feel like you conquered the planetary dissonance and this confidence will ensure that you ace your midterms, Virgo. Share your ideas with coworkers and in group projects; your brain power will bring new and exciting opportunities in March.
Libra (September 23-October 23): Your creativity and empathy mean that people love being around you during midterm season. Channel their confidence in you as your less-than-satisfactory exam grades roll in. Midterms are not the be-all, end-all, so keep working towards your goals in the coming months.
Scorpio (October 24-November 21): Jupiter is in Aries, Scorpio, so it’s time for you to focus on rest. Midterms will drain your energy so try to maintain a balance between academics and your personal life. Lean on friends and family, be sure to eat well, and use exercise to work out your exam frustrations.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Better-than-expected midterm results are coming your way, Sagittarius. Your success is a sign that you are making the right decisions in your personal and professional life, so be confident in your choices. The drive to constantly improve yourself has paid off this month.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): You are going to experience a significant transformation, Capricorn. New studying techniques will only yield average midterm results, but with Pluto moving out of Capricorn for the first time in 15 years, your stress levels will be low.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Aquarius, you’ve faced quite a few challenges these past few months. All that time and energy was worth it, though, because you are going to show those midterms who’s boss. Recognize your power and strength as we enter the Age of Aquarius—you are going to need it as you lead us into a period of great struggle and confrontation.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): Unfortunately, Pisces, having your birthday during exam period will not lead to the best results. That’s okay, though, because you can celebrate yourself and mourn your grades at the same time. None of your planets are in retrograde, so look forward to stability in your personal life.
