2019 End-of-School Horoscopes
By: Lucas Moore, Olivia Holman, Cassie Kreyling, & Luis Gamez
Horoscopes allow us to immerse ourselves into the world of astrology and spirituality. Horoscopes are based off zodiac signs – star constellations in the sky discovered by ancient Egyptians and later modified by the Babylonians and they eventually became what we know them as today once they were adopted by the Greeks.
Many dispute the validity of horoscopes, while many others follow their fortunes religiously. In the end you decide whether you truly will manifest the destiny each sign offers.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The end of the year is coming! You will steadfastly work towards the end, whether it be toward summer break or even graduation. Your grades will reflect your desire to perform. Grab the bull by the horns and get after it! The finish line is in sight, spring to the end.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The most versatile and vibrant horoscope sign, Gemini energy helps with communication and collaboration. Basically, Geminis know how to fly their freak flags at full mast. You are likely a very complex person. Geminis are generally not overemotional and see the practical side of popular controversies.
WARNING: ENDGAME SPOILER ALERT AHEAD
SKIP TO THE NEXT SIGN TO AVOID SPOILERS
You probably didn’t even cry during Endgame because you see the characters as just actors who aren’t really dying. However, you do sympathize with the plight in which the characters exist – so, don’t worry – you’re not a sociopath. Even though you perform well in school, possibly even attaining a relatively high GPA, you do not actually enjoy school. The last few days of school may seem like the longest of the year. Grit your teeth and get through it. Summer will be an exciting time filled with many ups and downs – but mostly ups! Use the “downs” as a way to remember to appreciate the “ups,” after all the sweet just isn’t sweet without the sour.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You love to help others more that helping yourself. This has caused you to gain – and lose – a few friendships throughout the school year. You’ve learned that friendships lost may not have been too beneficial in the first place – though learning this lesson did make the friendships worthwhile. Yet, there are still many friendships to seek in the future as well. The key to overcoming your insecurities and emotional instabilities will be to create, and maintain, healthy friendships while also focusing on schoolwork by tying up any loose ends.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
You are the prideful lion. You love to boast and show off at any given moment. This pride and immense sense of self-worth serves as the source for a couple reputations – one you are comfortable with – another about which you aren’t so sure. The school year hasn’t been easy, you may have even considered making some drastic changes. The best path to take would be to push through where you are, associate with the people that keep you humble, and work to keep pace and push ahead. If and when you happen to fall behind, don’t be too hard on yourself. It happens to the best of us. Instead of overexerting yourself to be #1, just stick with a steady pace to allow yourself to still take pride in your accomplishments as you catch up and things fall in place.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgos are analytical thinkers – a trait which can be very helpful in school – but sometimes tend to overthink things. Virgos are also known for their passion and intensity. Although you may overthink things, and your passion, intensity, and cheerful demeanor lead others to believe you don’t care – you do care deeply, but you’re unsure how to show it. Your insight and hard work have gotten you to this far, continue to be analytical in thinking, and you will eventually find the success you seek.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You are the iron hand in the velvet glove, the scales of justice. This school year has had many ups and downs, but the end is near. Your grades may go up, your relationships may settle, and your home/ social life is balanced. As a Libra, you are striving for a whole sense of balance in all areas of life, the ending of this school year just might be the right amount. Keep to yourself and try to avoid these final situations that can try to throw you off.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
As the end of the year approaches, don’t be afraid to dominate. Work hard to get to where you want to go, and great things will follow. Your passion in your endeavors will reward you vigorously.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You have a great sense of humor and are one of the most generous of the signs. Your idealistic qualities have taken you down 2 paths; 1 being the path of aiming for perfection without a great sense of reality at that moment, and 2 being the path of setting down the steps others have needed to take to make a situation fall in to place. This has allowed the school year to create. Multiple opportunities to prevail and fall. Let the end of this confusing year be your rising point by not promising more than you can deliver and by being PATIENT.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
The measured master planner of the horoscope family, Capricorn energy teaches us the power of structure and long-term goals. If you’re a Capricorn, then you have your whole life laid out in front of you. You are direct, decisive and know what you want. Right now, you’re sort of gliding through high school. You never get a GPA under 3.0 and always have good grades, and the only thing keeping you from a 4.0 is showing up to school. Your work in class is excellent, but at the end of the week your participation grade always kicks you in the butt. Your summer will be one of self-reflection, and you will make great lasting memories.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
you are the quirky yet “go with the flow” sign. However, this year hasn’t been easy. Take some time today to let your mind and body rest and relax. Let your mind wander, you may be surprised where it lands. The school year has been one chance to attract others like you who just want to be flexible toward the end of this school year. Being around others of your type will allow you to reflect upon yourself and figure out what you must do to end the year off right. Always remember, things are going to work out regardless!
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
you are the compassionate, easy going sign that takes on attributes of all the other signs. This has been your undoing and profitability this school year. Your best bet is to probably not engage in any type of social conflict, considering this has caused multiple accounts of depression this year. As a Pisces, you are striving for creativity, which
has allowed you to have an ongoing imagination. You are also immensely sensitive which can cause you to be swallowed in emotions for the rest of the school year, so maybe try being
empathetic for the summer!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
The pioneer and trailblazer of the horoscope wheel, Aries helps us initiate, and fight for our beliefs and fearlessly put ourselves out there. If you’re an Aries then you should expect a hard rest of the school year, but since you’re an Aries you will enjoy the grind. You probably have a high GPA but not quite the 4.0 and are working to get there. Your summer
will be exciting and you will learn new life lessons on your 3-month vacation.
Again, our horoscopes are the mystical oracles that can change the way we view everyday situations and coincidences. When we look from this astrological point of view, we are often viewed as idealistic or unrealistic. This view, most of the time, allows us to take a more calm and premeditated approach to issues in our life and therefore we can be viewed as more down to earth people. There’s no evidence on these writings being false and there’s no evidence of it being true so the best thing would be for us to let our imaginations fly and to maybe even try to follow these destinies.
