What NOT to Do This Fall, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Fall is officially back, and as the summer finally fades away, many of us fall into the old habits and routines of the previous year.

Sometimes that's a good thing, but other times it's good to resist your nature and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Keep scrolling to find out the one thing you definitely should not do this fall based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Stay Indoors the Whole Season Because of Bad Weather

Aries may be the doer of the zodiac, but they also hate surprises and can't stand being made uncomfortable. This season, don't let the blahs of autumn weather prevent you from being your usual, go-getting self. Even when freezing temperatures, pouring rain and cutting winds are cramping your style, see what you can do to channel your energy into something worthwhile. You're supposed to be unstoppable, so don't let the weather stop you in your tracks.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Spend All Your Money on Fall Fashion

Taurus may be known first and foremost for their dependability, but they can be even more driven by their love of living in luxury. This fall, you'll probably be very tempted to spend every last cent of your hard-earned cash on all of the latest adorable trends. Don't give in to those inclinations! Taurus is said to be a grounded sign, so lean into those habits this fall so you'll actually have some money left when winter rolls around.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Dress Summery All Fall

Gemini birthdays means summer is beginning, and as such, Gemini tends to love the hottest season of the year. Chances are that you also have a tough time coping with the change to fall. You're all about that summer style, and just because leaves are falling doesn't mean you're going to start dressing differently. Obviously, when the temperature dips and you're still in a tank top and shorts, you're not going to have a good time. Try finding clever ways to work your summer faves into warmer fall ensembles instead.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Break Up With Your S.O. Just Because

Cancer is driven almost entirely by their feelings, and when their emotions are running high, they can make snap decisions they'll regret later. You're also very in tune with the transition of the seasons. If you're feeling like it's time to make some big adjustments in your life just because it's fall, maybe start with a new accessory or trying a new food instead of breaking up with the S.O. you adore just because you feel you need change in your life. If a breakup is on your mind, really consider it before you act on that impulse.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Compete With Every Fall Event With Your Own Party

Leo is inclined to always want to be the biggest and the best, and they'd love to be the center of attention whenever possible. Your first instinct when you hear that someone else is having a homecoming get-together, or a haunted house for Halloween, or a football party, is to set up your own event in competition with it. This may make you the focus of your own shindigs, but the attendance will always be divided and you'll end up looking kind of petty in the end. Don't be afraid to let other people take on hosting duty. You'll still have the opportunity to be the star of the show.



Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Go Into Hibernation

Virgo is the most studious sign of the zodiac, and they often breathe a sigh of relief when autumn finally sets in. But just because you now have an excuse to stay inside, holed off from the rest of the world, anytime you're not in school doesn't mean you should. You're allowed to carve out time to stay in and read a good book or learn about something that interests you, but try to expose yourself to the world beyond your walls, too. Experience can be as good of a teacher as a text.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Force Yourself to Visit a Haunted House

As much as Libra loves Halloween, they do not go in for the scary side of things. You're a lover of peace and serenity, not jump scares and gore. However tempted you may be to join in with your friends and expose yourself to all of the spooky elements of the holiday, you should avoid unnecessarily terrifying yourself. Your friends will understand if you don't participate, and you'll thank yourself when you don't have nightmares for the next three months.


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Hold a Grudge From the Last School Year

Scorpio is not a particularly forgiving sign, and since they're an autumn sign, they'll feel even more justified in holding onto a grudge this season. However, you should probably stop to think and consider who these negative emotions are actually hurting. If the other party is totally over it (and they probably are after summer), holding a grudge is only punishing yourself. Try to let it go and you'll see that you feel a lot better.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Cling Too Dearly to Summer

Adventurous Sagittarius typically makes some massively optimistic summer plans that never play out quite as they'd hoped. Your dreams can be too big and your timeline too ambitious to actually be realistic, which can make the arrival of summer feel like a punch to the gut. You wish that it was still summer so you could get around to all of those plans you made, but unfortunately, you can't turn back time. The sooner you make peace with the fact that it's fall, the sooner you can make some incredible fall plans.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Commit to Too Much at School

Capricorn is the most driven sign of the zodiac. You can do anything you set your mind to, and you work extremely hard at everything you do. That's usually a good thing, except for the fact that you tend to overextend yourself and commit to way more than you should. While you can technically get great grades and join the band and be part of model U.N. and star in the school play, you're going to burn out sooner or later, and all of those things will suffer because of it. Try sticking to the things you're most passionate about, and maybe you can add more to your schedule if you find yourself with a lot of extra time on your hands.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Snub 'Basic' Fall Activities

Always an original and independent thinker, Aquarius can't stand falling in with the crowd. You prefer to be unique and stand out from everyone else, which is unfortunate when what's "popular" is something you'd actually enjoy. You can get too wrapped up in being an individual that you refuse to drink pumpkin spice lattes or go on haunted hayrides, even though you might actually love those activities. Remember that being yourself doesn't mean you have to be different each and every time. Don't forget that you're allowed to enjoy fall.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Join Zero Extracurriculars

Pisces is the slacker genius of the zodiac, and many of them would prefer not to go to school at all. However, that's not the world we live in, and while you're at school, you should probably get involved in a club, instrument, sport or other extracurricular. As much as you want to head straight home after that last bell rings, you actually have a lot to gain from taking part in something that interests you. There's a lot of creativity floating around in that brain of yours, so don't be afraid to harness it.
