Mar 21-Apr 19
Try and have fun while you can, Aries, as the Moon/Mars conjunction next week will leave you short-tempered and ill at ease. This week is a good time for studying in groups and chilling with your friends.
Apr 20-May 20
Though you may consider some bold moves this week, try and play it safe. You are happiest when you can keep a steady routine, and now is not the time to break away from that.
May 21-Jun 20
It’s important to keep in touch with old friends and family, even when work piles up. Make the effort to reconnect and strengthen relationships, Gemini.

Do you have your eye on a certain somebody? Do you have a lot of work to do? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then consider a McCabe date. Minimal romance and minimal efficiency, but still a good idea this week, Virgo.
Sep 23-Oct 22
Have you made a to-do list this week, Libra? It probably looks even more full of assignments and errands than usual. Try and pencil in a couple of hours for scrolling through Facebook or hanging out at Essie Mae’s to relieve some stress.
Oct 23-Nov 21
Health issues and lack of motivation are the bane of your week, Scorpio. When your mind tells you “get to work” and your body tells you “get to bed,” go to bed first and work later. Expect bursts of energy later in the evening, and do most of your assignments then.
Nov 22-Dec 21
You may find yourself focusing on the details of projects, and over-analyzing every aspect of your life. Try to look more toward the big picture, and reconsider your priorities.
Dec 22-Jan 19
With Venus affecting your sign, you seek stability and security in your relationships with others, Capricorn. Though you’re willing to go the extra mile for your loved ones, remember to take time to focus on yourself and what you need to get done.

Happy Birthday Aquarius! With Venus entering your sign, you’ll feel particularly dreamy and romantic this week. But don’t stay in your head too long. If you think you’re going to make a move on someone, go ahead and do it sooner rather than later.
