And When All Else Fails… Follow Your Horoscope


Those who know me well, are aware that my interest in zodiac signs has recently turned into a daily ritual and somewhat of an obsession since I’ve been at Clark. Perhaps it’s the Daily Horoscope App I downloaded on my iPhone, or an increased curiosity in my Scorpio sign, but most likely my growing fascination with horoscope readings has to do with the immense amount of stress I am currently under. During times of pressure I always tend to dedicate myself to something that will either put me in a better state of mind or give me some insight to the situation at hand. Painting nails, making collages, writing poetry, taking yoga classes; these have all been tactics I have tried to ignore my school work, deal with stress, and calm myself down. Lately, there have been monumental changes in my life, and though I welcome change; a lot has been coming at once. A few weeks ago I turned 20 (making me a November 4th Scorpio), I then formally decided to write an honors thesis and apply to the Accelerated Masters Program for International Development and Social Change, my roommates and I also signed a lease for the apartment we will be living in for the next two years, but in exactly two months I will be living in Cape Town, South Africa for my semester abroad, and I am still adjusting to my sister’s recent move to Berkley, California. Yeahhhh word vomit.. it’s a lot.

My fellow blogger Katie recently wrote a useful survival guide for when one finds themselves drowning in work. Well, I would like to add to her helpful list and say that when you are drowning in LIFE itself, head to the horoscopes. Not only is it a good distraction, but you can apply your reading to basically anything in your present reality and make it applicable- I guess that’s kinda the point. That being said, let me tell you a little about myself:

Sign Main Characteristics:

Scorpios stubbornly cling to emotional attachments. They rarely forget or forgive emotional rejection. They have to learn that jealously and possessiveness are self defeating. Re channeling negative feelings and experiences into constructive activity benefits others, as well as themselves. No other sign has the emotional strength of the Scorpio.

I was born in the year of the Monkey in the Chinese Horoscope with the fixed element being Metal. My Druid is also the Jasmine Tree. Although zodiac signs do not have the final say in who you are and what your future holds, readings (whether valid or not) allow you to self reflect, my ultimate stress reliever. Identifying a task or little something that helps beat that college stress makes all of the difference, no matter how eccentric it may be.
