smart | detour School Horoscope
Aries (March 21 to April 19) Shortly after the summer heat leaves, you find that the first thing to go as a student is your sense of pride in fashion. As difficult as it may be to do, dressing in a professional manner will help your standing in the eyes of those around, so keep the sweatpants at home.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) Good news: your prof doesn't want you to buy any text- books. Bad news: hundreds of pages of written notes. Stock up on your favourite pen, and try not to mind the ink stain on your hand, because it will all be worth it in the end.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Boring classes, crazy classes times, and that one student that constantly asks questions in class and disrupts ev- erybody. While changing majors might seem drastic, it's never too late to make a change in your life. Whether that be from one science to another, or a complete 180.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) Summer is over and you are now realizing that you don't have quite enough money for food, rent and tuition, and the parental piggy bank washed up long ago. Don't worry, there are plenty of ways to find that extra money for school, from bursaries student loans. It's worth it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) Ask questions. There are times where being proud or shy can be beneficial, but post-secondary school is not one of those times. If you are confused, seek clarification. It can make a huge difference, and will make you feel that much better than the burden of not asking.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Don’t trust the charmer. His smile might be bright, his demeanor warm, but he only means to take from you. Protect your investments wisely, and choose your confi- dants carefully. While putting trust in individuals isn’t the worst idea, it’s wise to know how much trust to invest and into whom.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You don't have to put your personal life on hold just because you're at school. Take the time to make friends and have fun. Odds are that the people in your classes are fairly like minded.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Hang in there kitty. Yes, summer is behind you and the days are getting shorter, but you can still schedule time to just be alone. Taking the time to unplug and cool off can spare you from a burnout you definitely don't need.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Procrastination is not your friend. The reason you get a syllabus at the beginning of term is to allow you to schedule accordingly, so when all your projects and papers come due at the same time, you can be on top of and ahead of the assignments.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Volunteering and interning can be very beneficial for both your resume as well as knowledge gained. It is not always a bad idea to show your ability to work without a wage, but be sure to not let yourself be taken advantage of as well. Finding time for a paying job is recommended.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Staying active is a good way of keeping up your mood. The healtheir you are, the better you will feel and you will be less inclined to indulge in your seventeenth cup of cof- fee today, as your body will keep on going.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) Introduce yourself to your professor and send a reminder email. Getting off on the right foot is key to building a relationship if you need help later, and will increase their opinion of you. Try not to be overbearing though, as crossing the line can make you seem annoying.
