From Mystic J; Permanent resident of Room 1313, Hollywood Tower Hotel.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Spend your summer trying to better yourself. Be constructive and pick a new skill to learn instead of letting yourself get sedentary. This doesn’t mean you can’t let your hair down, but does mean you should challenge yourself.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Freedom might look wonderful or it might look a little scary. But you are in control of your destiny. Not only did you study hard, but you prepared for what life after school would look like. Take on the world with a take-no-prisoners attitude and everyone else will fall in line.
Gemini (May 21–June 21)
Your goals for the summer are to de-stress. If you have to, volunteer, or you’ll find yourself going stir crazy just sitting by the pool. Don’t take on so many new tasks or gigs that you feel like you’re in school all over again. You have an opportunity to rest—use it.
Cancer (June 22–July 22)
People weren’t sure you were going to make it to this summer. They were sure you were gonna flunk or cry or fall on your face. But you proved to the haters that you are worth your accolades and esteem. Spend this summer refining what you’ve learned and get ready for a new year.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Your journey has just started, Leo. There’s no way of knowing where you’re going and you are a little unsure. This summer, seek out some mentors in your field or in something you’re interested in learning about. There’s no shame in asking for help, only in the silence.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
The long summer is maybe something you’ve spent a few months gearing up for. Remember to stay in the present and don’t get bogged down in the past or future. Surprises come your way when you pay attention, even if it’s just to the rhythm of your own heart.
Libra (September 23–October 23)
It’s a funny thing called life. It goes so fast, doesn’t it? You’ve been waiting for a summer like this for a long time and you have visions of romance or hard work or even just a good Harry Potter re-read. But stay flexible, you never know when a new challenge might come your way and lead you to somewhere completely new.
Scorpio (October 24–November 21)
Lose yourself in a good book this summer, Scorpio. Yes, you are incredibly capable and driven, but unless you have to make money for rent or food, this is the ideal summer to spend some time doing some meditation or traveling a little. Time to broaden your horizons.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
I know just how long you’ve waited to graduate and that you’ve spent even longer envisioning how you’ll conquer the world. But the world doesn’t easily bend to your will. Be prepared to face an obstacle or two with a bit of grace and a grain of salt. Let your better angel win the day.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
You have so much to catch up with on the DVR and normally I’d be all for that but this is a great summer to build up your resume. Work hard, diligently and smartly. There are more jobs out there than the one at Dutch Bros you’ve been eyeing because you think it’s easy. Nothing in this life is as easy as we think it is.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Spend this summer dating yourself or your favorite ice cream cake. Indulge, enjoy and give yourself a chance to unbend that spring tightening in your spine a little. Explore how your body responds to both relaxation and stress, and learn how to tell the difference.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Do you know why the chicken crossed the road? To try the blacklight slide, of course! Get out this summer and meet some people. Your sheltered little world could use a few more inhabitants and there’s plenty of events that would hold your interest.
