Aries – Midterms? You mean just another day in the life of someone who is killing it. You’re halfway there and it feels like almost no time has passed this semester. You’ve put so much effort in already in preparation for this. You’ll be just fine.
Taurus – Even though this week has made you stress eat more than usual, you’ll do great on all your tests. So have that extra bowl of cereal because you’ve earned it with all the hard work you put into studying.
Gemini – Don’t worry— the dark circles under your eyes will go away eventually. You’ve pulled all-nighter after all-nighter and it’s starting to show. Please prioritize some sleep before you pass out in the middle of an actual exam.
Cancer – You are more prepared than you think you are. The only thing you are missing is the confidence to actually succeed. Choosing to trust yourself in this moment is critical to the rest of your semester. You can do it!
Leo – You are very confident about this exam season. It’s always good to be confident, but make sure you are backing it up correctly. Take this time to double check yourself and go over any last minute details. You’ll thank yourself later.
Virgo – No matter how hard you try to procrastinate, the Earth keeps spinning. You’ll have to deal with all of this responsibility soon. Even though you thrive under pressure, maybe try to get one or two things done in advance. It’ll all be fine in the end.
Libra – Is it even midterms if every week feels like this? Make sure you take some time this week to prioritize self-care. You can’t be high functioning all the time if you are ignoring the warning signs to slow down. Try a bubble bath or a hot cup of tea.
Scorpio – You are focused and ready and primed for success. This is going to be a lot of work, but you’re no stranger to difficult things. If there isn’t a clear path to your goals, then make one. You have it all within you, now go for it.
Sagittarius – All of the scheduling can get overwhelming sometimes. Remember that it won’t feel like this forever and you’ll find peace again. Check your calendar every morning. Everything will be okay as long as you remember to breathe.
Capricorn – As long as no one says the M word does it even exist? Capricorn you’re in total denial so far. Please remember to put the iced latte down at some point and pick up a book. It won’t be much fun, but you’ll thank yourself later.
Aquarius – You’re choosing to trust in the universe that this will work itself out just fine. And knowing your luck it will. Take time to discern what will bring more stress into your life. Just try to remember to bring a pencil or two to class.
Pisces – What are midterms but just a symbolic halfway checkpoint? Society puts too much emphasis on self created systems of measurement. Just remember Pisces, that even though you may find them tedious, you still have to take them.
