Horoscopes: Cringey quotes to help inspire all the signs

By Farah Bassyouni Mar 31, 2023

About this time of the year, all students begin to feel burnout. The weeks that follow spring break are always the most difficult to get through.  

With the fear of finals and the end of the year looming over the campus, why not look to traditionally cliche quotes to find some inspiration?

Aries (March 21st – April 19th) – “Keep calm and carry on.”

When life becomes stressful the first instinct is to freak out. That is the worst thing you can do. You will be feeling overwhelmed with everything including your emotions. Take a breather and stop freaking out, seriously. It’s going to work out. 

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th) – “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

You have lowered your standards and that is never a good idea. Take this advice and try to aim your sights higher. While you may fail, at least you tried and that counts for something. Maybe something small, but hey still counts. 

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th) – “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

Now is the time to take what you have and make the best out of it. Wishing for better circumstances is nothing but a waste of your time. Start dealing with your issues instead of wishing them away. 

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd) – “Live every day like it’s your last.”

Whether you are a first-year or senior, your college time will end. Take advantage of being able to skip class and frolic on the quad. Or don’t and have fun in your 50-minute lecture. 

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd) – “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

You being incredibly picky is not helping you. Start trying with school, friendships and work and maybe you will see an improvement in your life. Isolating yourself and never trying anything is extremely counterproductive. 

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd) – “Everything happens for a reason.”

Everything in your life has led you to where you are at. You need to sit with that for a little bit. All your own choices basically led you here but at least you somewhere doing something. 

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd) “Live, laugh, love.”

This is a tale as old as time. This cringey quote says it all, you need to keep on moving forward and try to live your best life. You have no other choice, sorry.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st) – “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

We get it. Your life sucks and everything is hard and only getting harder at the end of the year. Take this advice and please get over it. No one wants to hear you whine about your life anymore, so stop. 

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st) – “Strive for progress, not perfection”

You are not perfect. Not even close. Stop trying to convince yourself and others that you are. It is probably exhausting and it is honestly annoying. So please just stop. 

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th) “When you feel like quitting, think about why you started”

At this point in the year dropping out of college is on everyone’s mind. But remember back in January when you started this semester. Keep pushing, or don’t get an education. 

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th) – “Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.”

Waiting for things to happen is not a good idea. It seems like you have been doing that for a while so you better cut it out. Being behind is really fun until you have to get caught up. I won’t stress you out more, good luck you need it. 

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th) – “You have to look through the rain to see the rainbow.”

Try your hardest to look past all the finals, papers and projects and you will see summer. That will not help you in the now but hey at least you have something to look forward to.
