Whether you're completely lost or just need a little direction, let astrology help you decide which Rutgers clubs and organizations to join this year. – Photo by Rachel Chang

With more than 800 student-run clubs and organizations at Rutgers, it can be really difficult to find the ones that best suit you. When I was a first-year, I remember being lost in the pool of options and afraid to dive in. Instead of feeling worried and overwhelmed as you enter your college journey, let the stars help guide you!

While this list is not exhaustive by any means (there are literally more than 800 clubs), I have carefully handpicked a variety of organizations that I personally think each of the 12 Zodiac signs would enjoy here at Rutgers. As the University has so many niche clubs, organizations for individuals of specific identities, etc., I tried my best to stick to more general clubs based on the major personality traits of each sign. 

Aries (March 21-April 19) 

As an Aries, high energy and enthusiasm come ingrained in your persona. You are confident, love a good adventure and are a natural born leader. No matter what organizations you join, people will look up to you and your energy!

My cosmic recommendations are:

Taurus (April 20-May 20) 

Grounded in nature and super magnetic, you are an Earth sign through and through, Taurus. Though, there’s a material side to you that loves all things luxury and decadence. Oh, did I also mention that food is literally your middle name?

My cosmic recommendations are:

Gemini (May 21-June 20) 

If there’s one thing you love to do, it’s talk, Gemini! Smart, outgoing and analytical, your brain is always on the move — and you need a club that can keep up with you. Though, you can adapt to anything you put your great mind to.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Cancer (June 21-July 22) 

Caring and passionate, you love being there for others, Cancer. Joining a service-based organization will be a great way for you to showcase your thoughtful and attentive nature and expand your protective soul.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leo, Leo, Leo — you are the epitome of confidence and charisma! You are an amazing leader with an outgoing, loyal personality. You will thrive in any organization where you can be the star of the show and guide others while doing it.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Virgo (August 23-September 22) 

Hello, Virgo! Your intellect, altruism and organizational skills make you a great fit for a variety of clubs here at Rutgers. You’re a perfectionist —  but you already know that — have a kind heart, a spectacular attention to detail and a massive green thumb.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Libra (September 23-October 22) 

Your charming and artistic nature make you a great fit for all things related to the arts, Libra. Whether it’s writing or theatre, you will find great joy in any creative endeavor you seek. Represented by scales, you are also fair and social —  the possibilities are endless for you!

My cosmic recommendations are:

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) 

Why so serious, Scorpio? Your intense and complex persona may often lead you to struggle to find a club that truly suits you. Though, with hundreds of organizations, Rutgers will have the perfect one to satisfy your curious and passionate soul (yes, you have one).

My cosmic recommendations are:

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) 

You are one fiery person, Sagittarius! Your personality burns so bright that it will surely bring so much energy to any club that you settle on (omg commitment, so scary). Jokes aside, you love adventure, intellect and all things fun, and you thrive on spontaneity and conversation.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) 

Arguably the most driven and hardworking sign of the zodiac, you will likely find yourself joining a club that is all about dedication just like you are, Capricorn. You have a responsible and practical persona that allows you to remain focused on and passionate about your projects.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) 

Intelligient and creative, you are always thinking, Aquarius! Your mind is a playground for innovation, and your non-conformist, free-spirited ways allow you to remain one step ahead of others. You will thrive in a club that allows you to entertain your roaring mind at all times.

My cosmic recommendations are:

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Daydreaming again, Pisces? You are among the most imaginative and artistic of the zodiac and will enjoy any organization that allows you to tap into your visionary soul. You are also kind, adaptable and care so much about the people around you. Channel this positive energy!

My cosmic recommendations are:

Also, make sure to attend this year’s Involvement Fair on Monday, September 5, on College Avenue from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. to have the chance to check out more than 500 of these clubs and organizations in person. It’s truly the best opportunity you have all year to get involved, and it's a great start to the semester.
