Horoscope: Spring

ARIES (21/03 – 20/04)

Favourite weather:
10 degrees with a slight breeze is the temperature in which you perform best
Spring fever:
April is the month in which you have the hots for nearly everybody you encounter!
Favourite Easter treat:
Pure chocolate bunny, 1 meter in height
Best month:
In June you’ll feel extra productive to get those last EC’s!
Horoscope:
Aries, good things are coming your way! You’re living an incredibly fun-filled life during Spring. You’re comparable to all of the flowers: when they start to bloom again, so do you. Enjoy time with your pals and convince your house mates to do something outside of the house (suggestion: the stars tell laser gaming could be just the thing for you)!

TAURUS (21/04 – 21/05)

Favourite weather:
Desperately waiting for the first day of 15 degrees weather and a bold bright sun to wear your most summery outfit.
Spring fever:
You suddenly notice you have a thing for Capricorns, which really isn’t a bad thing, since Capricorns are patient, kind and can provide you with their spare scarf when your summery outfit turns out to be, well, too summery.
Favourite Good Friday treat:
That HEMA hotdog you bought whilst traveling through the Netherlands for Real Life Monopoly.
Best month:
March, while the weather and new movies are an excuse to sit in the cinema all the time and not feel guilty.
Horoscope:
Aren’t you just the nicest, Taurus? Your mission this Spring is to spread positivity and it seems like this is an easy task for you. Your mother is happier during the weekends since you volunteer to help her cooking, your friends can always depend on you having a weird joke to cheer them up… Just don’t forget to give yourself some rest, too. Studywise, you’re getting a lot on your plate and the stress feels cropped up inside you now and then. Remember to breath and focus on the stars inside you.

GEMINI (22/05 – 21/06)

Favourite weather:
A tad cloudy, a tad sunny, and just warm enough to not feel cold during one of the many morning runs you’re planning to take!
Spring fever:
Shit… your student assistant for a certain course is a lot hotter than you initially thought… Facebook stalking-alert!
Favourite me-time treat:
Some strawberries dipped in pure chocolate on a night in with your number one BFF.
Best month:
The month in which strawberries are in season, this beginning in May.
Horoscope:
In Spring, Gemini’s are looking ahead. They are well aware of the fact they need to get those few extra EC’s to not fall behind on the rest of their fellow AI-ers. While Gemini’s are in general clever people, they tend to go to extra lengths when they see their capabilities don’t lie in certain fields of AI. This is what leads them to pursue a so called term: ‘’teacher bonding’’. Great thinking, teachers can never resist a few compliments now and then. Who knows where it will get you in the long run – a few tenths of a point higher for sure. Just don’t turn into an arsekisser, please.

CANCER (22/06 – 23/07)

Favourite weather:
Cloudy with a chance of (IKEA’s 3D printed) meatballs
Spring fever:
Not too many secret admirers at your feet, Cancer: ‘’Why does only Engelbert like my socks in sandals look?’’
Favourite music treat:
Paaspop, Pinkpop, Best Kept Secret… you’re ready!
Best month:
April, since you find yourself funnier than the door knob. (Not everyone agrees with you on this)
Horoscope:
Cancers are likely to spend more time on their own this Spring. This doesn’t mean their favourite tune is All By Myself by Céline Dion, it means they are exploring the meaning of independent. The thought of traveling by yourself must have crossed your mind at a certain point. Experiencing new things! Shaking the hand of a Japanese robot! Something that could appeal to you, Cancer, is studying abroad for a semester. While submitting abroad-university choices has just closed for next year, it’s never too early to start looking at all your possibilities to fulfil your thirst for new things.

LEO (24/07 – 23/08)

Favourite weather:
Something you’ll never experience this Spring
Spring fever:
Could that frog in the Botanic Garden behind the Radboud Sports Centre be your true love in disguise?
Favourite orange treat:
Anything that involves carrots, from carrot cakes to carrot cupcake icing to carrots juice. Orange is simply a colour that makes you happy.
Best month:
Maybe May, where you may majorly chill out during its first week?
Horoscope:
It’s written all over in the stars, Leo. You’re awaiting Summer. It’s only March and you’ve already started clearing out your closet and stuffing all your jumpers away (except for the ol’ good Radboud hoodie). While it’s good to look forward to things, don’t forget to live in the now! You tend to zone out too much during lectures, thinking about white beaches and climbing palm trees to collect coconuts. Maybe all you’re searching for is a little bit of fun. This you can find easily, by visiting more CognAC activities. Might be better for your wallet, too. (Something else you might want to keep an eye on…)

VIRGO (24/08 – 23/09)

Favourite weather:
A spring drizzle, some sunshine, plus a colourful rainbow
Spring fever:
You’re quite indecisive in the love area, and uncertain what or who it is you want. Communication is an important part of every (beginning) relationship. Speak out more, listen more, do more and do not be a robot in bed: things should turn out just fine.
Favourite culture treat:
A spontaneous trip to a yet unknown city
Best month:
April, we wouldn’t want to miss Willie’s birthday party, now do we?
Horoscope:
Virgo’s are able to get clear ideas in Spring of what they want to do in their future in relation to Artificial Intelligence. This gives them certainty and the ability to worry less. A focus in your area of study is one step towards a brighter future: the next step for Virgo’s is to learn how to loosen up and lose their eye focus (literally) in the party area. A few evenings out never killed nobody! It’s time to find more fun places in Nijmegen and learn how to make a fire for all the cosy nights awaiting at the Waalstrand.

LIBRA (24/09 – 23/10)

Favourite weather:
Rain, rain and more rain: The beautiful flowers need water in order to grow, don’t they?
Spring fever:
You find out that you do not necessarily need a boy-/girlfriend to be happy. Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ is your favourite song of this month.
Favourite fashion treat:
Hats, beanies and caps are you’re new addiction during spring time
Best month:
A good beginning is half the battle: March is your lucky month.
Horoscope:
You are very sad and feel depressed. You were so determined to win with Gotcha, but it just did not work out. You still have nightmares about the day that you have been killed. But maybe you have grieved long enough now and you should try to cheer up a little. You have a lot of friends who would love to see you happy again and are planning a lot of fun things for you. Also you should go a little bit outside more often: The fresh wind, the sunshine and the blue sky will make you feel alive again.

SCORPIO (24/10 – 22/11)

Favourite weather:
As long as there aren’t any clouds in the sky you are happy: Especially when you are able to count stars at night
Spring fever:
Butterflies are flying around madly in your stomach everytime a computer practicum starts . Is there any chance you’re in love with your programming partner?
Favourite book treat:
Of course you would never tell this to anyone, but secretly you’re enjoying to finally reread the ‘Twilight Saga’
Best month:
As the stars have told us: Scorpio will find its way in May!
Horoscope:
You couldn’t be looking more forward to join the CognAC trip to Berlin. Not only will you have a marvellous time with all your favourite fellow students there but…. Think of all the Bratwursten, Bretzels and German beer you can enjoy there! Unfortunately eating/drinking all this stuff will have its downside, too as can be seen on your weight scale. Try to do some more sports in this spring: Maybe you can still subscribe for the Batavierenrace or you could finally follow that Hoopdance course at the gymnasion.

SAGITTARIUS (23/11 – 22/12)

Favourite weather:
There is a tiny chance that it is going to snow this spring so that you can finally build that snowman you always wanted to.
Spring fever:
You’re happily in love with your (imaginary) boy-/girlfriend. In fact you cannot even stop thinking about him/her which is why you are grinning like a maniac all around the clock.
Favourite dancing treat:
Head banging on all of the songs of ACDC and Metallica.
Best month:
Definitely the month where the Lustrum week takes place: May
Horoscope:
You have waited the entire school year for this and finally it has arrived: The Lustrum week of CognAC. Everything promises that this week will be the best of the year so your expectations are high. However things turn a bit dark for you after everyone will see you do that awkward dance move at the first party. Sure you will be embarrassed, but don’t let this little accident ruin the rest of the activities. There will be enough other chances to show people how cool you actually are.

CAPRICORN (23/12 – 20/01) 

Favourite weather:
Sunshine with weird shaped clouds in the sky.
Spring fever:
The Swede you are letting stay at your place for the Nijmegen-Linköping AI exchange is kind of cute! But then again: Who could resist blond hair and blue eyes? Be your funny and nice self and you will have a good chance with that boy/girl.
Favourite drinking treat:
Nothing is better than a cup of strong coffee to keep you awake at lectures.
Best month:
April promises some good evenings with your best friends for you.
Horoscope:
The 8th of May and the 19th of June are approaching. And you as a good son/daughter probably know what this means (hint: Mother’s day and Father’s day). These days are the time of the year to show how grateful you are with your dear parents. And as they have made you the awesome man/woman you are today you should show them how happy you are with them. Maybe you could invite them to your room in Nijmegen and cook a nice dinner for them. But before doing so don’t forget to clean up your room and get rid of all the beer bottles and candy wrappers that lie around there (and please do not just shove them under your bed).

AQUARIUS (21/01 – 18/02)

Favourite weather:
Only everything above 25 degrees outside is good enough for you.
Spring fever:
You’re in love with (in your opinion) the most awesome boy/girl of this world! Get inspired by all the lovely flowers that start to grow and the songs birds are singing outside, and maybe write a sweet poem to your special friend.
Favourite programming treat:
Not having to program with Matlab but just using good old Python.
Best month:
June, when ‘Leffe blond beer’ is on bonus at the Albert Heijn (at least that is what the stars predict)
Horoscope:
Spring is coming, which unfortunately also means that you are feeling constantly a bit ill because of your hay fever. Luckily you have enough handkerchiefs in your bag and you have still got enough energy for a lot of fun activities. Jupiter’s position promises success with the upcoming sport events and furthermore it is finally warm enough outside to just sit and chill on the grass with some beer and donuts.
Try to enjoy as much as possible of these times, because exams are also coming up soon.

PISCES (19/02 – 20/03)

Favourite weather:
Nothing is better than stormy weather: Rain, thunder and lightning give you a good adrenaline kick
Spring fever:
You’ve met that boy/girl online and enjoy very much chatting with him/her on social media. However you will only truly get to know him/her if you will meet in person. Try to make a date sometime.
Favourite  movie treat:
Since 2003 you have waited 13 (!) years for this but finally ‘Finding Dori’ will be shown in the cinemas!
Best month:
In March you will be the sunshine of the TK.
Horoscope:
You’re feeling a bit under the weather which has to do with the fact that your passion for the study AI has faded a bit. You would like to make some cooler robots instead of working with those rusty EV3s. But not to worry Pisces: Mercury promises that if you just keep making a good effort with your study you will have enough chances to program more advanced things in your later life. Until then you can keep dreaming about cute little butterfly robots or a robot that brings you to school everyday.
