The Ghost of Fall Yet to Come has some gentle advice

  • 2 min to read

Do you ever look back on yourself five years ago and cringe? Same. That’s why future you wants to give present you some advice. Read on to see what the Ghost of Fall Yet to Come needs you to know.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23 - OCT. 22):

That person you’ve been casually seeing? Decide what the end goal is. Flirting is fun until feelings get involved. Evaluate yours before they ask you to define the relationship in the middle of Netflix and Chill.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23 - NOV. 21):

Let some trustworthy people into your life. You are not Atlas, and the world will not fall apart if you show some weakness. Sometimes you just need to vent and it’s good to have friends who will listen, not just your poor roommate at 2 a.m.



Now is not the time to be careless. Yes, we know responsibilities are gross. But you’re an adult now, and you’ve got them. It’s okay, you’ll get better at this. Remember, frozen food is still real food!

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22 - JAN. 19):

It’s time to let go of your grudges. Someone isn’t necessarily evil for cutting you in line at the Food Zoo. Next time you run into each other, smile and learn to let things fall off your shoulders.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 - FEB. 18):

You’re not cooler than everyone else because you think you’re “woke.” Evaluate your privilege and use it to help other people. You can still save the world, just realize what actually needs saving.

PISCES (FEB. 19 - MARCH 20):

Daydreaming is a fun pastime, but try to cut it out when you’re in class, okay? You live in the here and now, you can make it what you want it to be. Plus, you’re paying a shit ton for tuition and you might as well get your money’s worth.


You’re not always right and not everything is a personal attack. Take a nap and CHILL. Lay off the caffeine for a bit, too.


Your possessiveness is going to drive those you love away. We know you crave security, but remember that people don’t belong to other people. You don’t own your friends and they don’t own you. You can show love in other ways.

GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20):

Start a self-care routine. Repetition doesn't have to be boring if you make it something you actually want to do. Plus, it will help you rest enough that you can maintain that energetic personality without a Redbull.


It’s time to let that person go. Whether it’s your high school ex you’re still drunk-dialing or a friend you lost, you’ve got to leave that relationship in the past. You’ve still got the memories and that’s enough for now. It’s time to make more.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUG. 22):

Just because you’re confident doesn’t mean you can treat people like they’re less than you. Trust us, it’s only sexy for the first couple weeks and then it just feels patronizing.

VIRGO (AUG. 23 - SEPT. 22):

Things are starting to get super intense for you. You’re buckling down and trying to be the best, but remember that your best is THE best. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to try. It’s okay to not be good at everything.
