When Should You Start Writing Your College Essay? 
When Should You Start Writing Your College Essay? 
May 28, 2024

Let's be frank: there's never an ideal moment to craft college essays. At best, there are times that are somewhat less unfavorable. Why is...

Horoscopes 9/16/2019

Aries (March 21-April 19) The agenda is set and you think you’re ready. But have you faced the possibility of losing your warmth? You are more than your plans.


Taurus (April 20-May 20) While it is important to be open, there are some things that you need to remember to keep sacred. There is a part of you that is just for you- don’t cheapen it by trying to explain it away.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) You’re making sacrifices and you’re wondering if it’s all going to be worth it in the end. To be human isn’t to be happy all the time. To be human is to sometimes give up your happiness.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) You’re so eager for a bit of luck that misfortune is morphing into opportunity in front of your eyes. Ask for help from those around you, as you are being deceived. 

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) You are in a liminal space. A waiting room, a train station, an elevator. You’ll be on the move again soon- no need to worry.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Some things may seem permanent, but it’s only because you’ve been holding on for so long. If you let go you’ll float, not fall.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are good at delivering bad news. You are a fantastic judge of character. It is up to you now to use these skills in order to right a wrong. You know exactly what to do.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You are used to putting up walls. You like boundaries and distinctions. It is time for you to realize that the past doesn’t have to remain in the past.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You are used to being independent, but take the time to really look at others. When you lock eyes with someone, something beautiful will stir within you. A feeling you had forgotten.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Confidence comes easy to you, but it too often overflows into arrogance. Maybe you know how to keep yourself in check. But it’s more likely that your arrogance is making you blind.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are as unpredictable as the weather. The sunny sky will soon be exciting again.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) You are full of wisdom, but it’s time to put that wisdom into action. With energy leftover from the full moon, focus on time-management and putting your plans into action.
