It's Because I'm A Capricorn

Why everyone everywhere should believe in astrology and the good it can do in your life.

It's Because I'm A Capricorn

Oftentimes, I find myself doing something that other people would consider weird, odd, or just downright confusing, and my response 99% of the time is "don't worry about it, it's because I'm a Capricorn." Your astrological sign can tell you so many things about who you are and what is happening in your life, and also 99% of the time, it is completely accurate. For a while, I just thought it was a coincidence until I started reading further into it. Today, I am going to attempt to explain astrology and convince the skeptics that they need it in their lives.

What most people do not know about astrology is you actually have three signs; your sun, moon, and rising signs. Your sun sign determines your ego, identity, and role in life. Your sun sign is the sign you probably know already, it determines who you truly are at the core of your being. Your moon sign rules your emotions, moods, and feelings, and it reflects who you are when you're alone. In most cases, but not all, this is the sign you most think of yourself as. Lastly, your rising sign, also known as your ascendant sign, is the sign you present yourself as to other people when you first meet, and what other people tend to think of you as. (I learned all of this info through an app called Co-star. If you don't have it, download it. It's amazing).

With all of that being said, my sun sign is a Capricorn, and I actually identify as a Capricorn. I am incredibly determined, stubborn, and tend to come off as dark or dark humored. However, I am a Libra moon and a Leo rising, and I see a lot of those qualities in myself as well. Click here for descriptions of each zodiac sign and see if you identify with yours too!

I know to some people, this may sound like absolute nonsense. I promise you, it is not. Astrology is a system that uses the movement of the planets and a person's birth chart to explain who they are and events that have happened or will happen in their lives. You can't tell me that's not super cool.

So, now that I've explained it a little more, let's talk about why everyone should use astrology and believe in it. There are many reasons, but the main reason that I've found for using it is that it can help you make better decisions and more gracefully manage your life. Having your horoscope explained to you daily and having it tell you what you're going to have trouble in or what you're going to excel in can help you watch out for problem areas and make sure to strive to do better in them.

While I hope I have been able to turn some skeptics into believers, or just educate a little bit more on what astrology is, a really good way to get into astrology is to go see a professional. You never know what you could see in your stars and how it could improve your life.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
