Astrology: What the stars hold for your spring break
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):
I recommend that you find yourself a source of water for the finest form of relaxation: Purification. Whether you discover a good friend’s apartment swimming pool or a clear creek in the hill country, get your webbed toes in action and breathe easy.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
If you can find them, get tickets and go out for SxSW. Your engaging nature in a public sphere of such vivacity and loquacious environs as a bar on East Fifth will prove the best forum for reviving your genius.
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
You’ve got the planets of love and luck in your sign right now. Get outside, plow the social scene, and find yourself the springtime companion of your dreams. I recommend the earthy and relaxed atmosphere offered by Petrol Station, a manly bar off of Ella Boulevard serving cool, locally-brewed craft-only beers with hearty burgers to boot.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
My dear friends of Mercurial passions, feed your imaginations and take a trip away from our city. Driving gets all gears going with the same motion and a short vacation will invigorate your soul.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
Go home for a couple of days over spring break. Cook a five-course meal at home with friends or your favorite family member. Reminisce, relax and rejuvenate. Perhaps consider a pedicure while you’re at it.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):
Brilliant lion, take the opportunity to tan while you can. Catch up on reading for your classes. Get a new pair of shades for the season. And please, use natural sunshine. This is Texas, and we’ve got sun to spare.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
While it might be enticing to hide away in the library or your favorite obscure café while everyone else is sunbathing, I recommend putting down your work for at least one weekend over the break and consider asking that cute whomever out to see a kitschy flick.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
Make yourself an awesomely peppy mix-tape (or playlist, if you’re not one for nostalgia) of entirely new and upbeat tunes. Take it with you everywhere over Spring Break and see if it gets you out of the academic funk you’ve been feeling.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
This one’s for my favorite Scorpio who’s leaving me for France: Grrrlfriend, gather ye rosebuds while ye may, and know you can make gold of hay. Go for the stars over the break, and out of this good life, great memories make.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Dreaming centaur, I figure that you might see your life’s dreams on the horizon. If you get the sense that a situation isn’t working out, take the fall and cut it loose. Use the spring break to leave an unpromising situation behind, and take a fresh step in your heart’s desire’s direction.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Work and responsibilities might be leaving you a bit low, and they might try to keep you from letting yourself enjoy spring break. I recommend setting time aside for yourself over the coming week, and do what you, your body and your mind need most: Chill.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
You’ve got all the balls rolling in one direction, all the hens in their basket and some time to look back on your accomplishments this year. Breathe, stretch, sit down for a moment and pat yourself on the back. Then go out for a good time and get your groove on.
