The One Thing You'll NEVER Do in High School, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
High school is an excusable time of trial and error.
We're still in the early stages of figuring out who we are, who we want to be and who we want to be with. Therefore, it's no surprise that we'll make plenty of mistakes along this journey, and that's nothing to be ashamed of. That said, there are certain things we're inherently opposed to doing, based solely on when we were born.
Keep reading for that one thing you'll never do, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Drop Out of an Extracurricular
Fiery, determined Aries—for you, there's no task too daunting and no workload too heavy. That's why the last thing you'd ever consider in high school is dropping out of an extracurricular. You thrive under pressure, and don't see any point in a few extra hours of the day allotted to twiddling your thumbs, or, better yet, sleeping. Whether it's class president, softball team captain, volunteering, taking on an after-school job, or, heck, all of the above, you've got it covered—and you're not about to let anyone see you sweat!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Throw a Party When Your Parents Go Out of Town
Practical, responsible Taurus—as an earth sign, you're among the most grounded in the zodiac. You're wise enough to know that one night of wild fun and attention from your classmates is not worth the months-long wrath of your parents you're sure to endure once they realize you threw a rager while they left you alone under the roof they pay for. As a sign that's known to think before they act, having the ability to ignore temptation to get rowdy in mom and dad's absence is quite the virtue.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Plan a Girls Trip
As one of the most social signs in the zodiac, with an inability to spend frequent time alone, you love doing things with your friends, Gemini. That said, your indecisiveness and inconsistency make you an awful planner. When it comes to a little spring break road trip with your gal pals, you know darn well that your mind is going to change a bunch of times, and you're only going to frustrate your friend group. That's why you're sure to leave the planning in the hands of basically anyone but you, because once they lock in the arrangements, you can no longer change your mind!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Express Feelings to a Crush
When it comes to feelings, you've got plenty, tender Cancer. But as for how you express them? Well, you don't exactly wear your heart on your sleeve. While you certainly have no problems confiding in your pals about someone you're crushing on, you're much more timid when it comes to divulging your feelings to that person. Your ability to feel such extreme emotion often deters you from opening up as much, because you fear your sensitive self may be deeply hurt or rejected. So, unless a crush comes to you with feelings of romantic interest, they're not about to hear it from you first.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Miss a School Dance
Charming Leo, you're the belle of the ball—and what better place to let yourself shine than at a school dance? The mere thought of missing these pivotal events gives you anxiety, as nothing makes you happier than slipping into a fancy gown, getting your makeup professionally done and having a cutie pie on your arm as you make your grand entrance onto the dance floor. Walking in to the sounds of "oohs" and "aahs" from your adoring classmates fills your need for that attention you crave so much.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Ditch Class
Oh you little perfectionist, you! Virgo, you wouldn't be caught dead ditching class. An hour in detention or a potential ding on your school record would have you in absolute shambles. You're the student who even sticks behind on any unanimously declared "Student Ditch Day" for fear of getting in trouble. Even when you have an excused absence, your worrisome little head goes into a tailspin over the very thought of missing a pop quiz or not jotting down important notes for the day. So, purposely missing class? Well, that's just not going to happen for you.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Join the Debate Team
We always breathe a sigh of relief when a Libra is around, because it means no drama! The harmonious air sign always strives to be diplomatic and fair—but unfortunately isn't the best at presenting an argument. While they're on a constant chase for justice and equality, their indecisive nature prevents them from being able to speak up in a meaningful way about what they believe in. They're not big on confrontation at all, quickly backing down if they start feeling intimidated by another party's rebuttal. This is why a Libra knows better than to go out for the debate team, as its members have to be swift on their feet and wholly confident in their arguments.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Run for Student Body
No one presents themselves quite like you, Scorp. You're passionate, confident, resourceful and factual, making yourself an excellent self-saleswoman. Therefore, on paper, you'd be quite the contender for something like student body. But you'd never in a million years give it a shot because of your inability to easily open up to others. You much prefer being the reserved girl standing in a corner with her three, longtime best friends over standing at a podium, trying to convince an entire grade why they should vote for you to head their class. The thought of dealing with so many people on the reg and consistently keeping a chipper smile on your face makes you cringe. Student body is so not for you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Become a Part-Time Tutor
Wild and free, Sag—you hold quite a bit of knowledge and worldliness in that mind of yours. And while you love sharing your wisdom with others, and completing anything you set your mind to, you need to do so on your own terms. You're not a sign that can be held down, and you're not the best at making commitments. This is why you wouldn't set out to become a part-time tutor. As much as you enjoy telling people tidbits of info you've picked up over the course of your interesting life, you tend to get frustrated fast. If the person you're instructing doesn't see things from your perspective, you'll have no problem telling them they're wrong. And as a free-spirit, the thought of having to meet someone at the same time each week to go over the same topic will do absolutely nothing but bore you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Date Someone With Zero Ambition
Responsible, disciplined and driven, you see yourself as quite the catch, Cap! Based on these characteristics, and your genuine confidence and ability to truly believe in yourself, you obviously want the same in a partner. You recognize that time is money, life is short, etc. etc., and there's no point in wasting away in any capacity. It's likely you're not going to meet your future spouse off the bat, but you're certainly not going to date someone who is simply just a time-filler. It's important for you to date someone who is completely up to your standards—anyone else just won't do.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Take on an After-School Job in Fast Food
You're a fairly hard-working sign, Aquarius. So, it only makes sense you'd seek out an after-school job to gain some real-world experience and save up for the future—but not just any after-school job. You're a sign that needs constant mental stimulation; you require an environment that allows you to be yourself, and that gives you the opportunity to share your intellect with others. Therefore, you probably wouldn't last a day working in a fast food joint. From putting on a dingy uniform each shift, to plopping burgers on a grill like you're saving the world, you just wouldn't thrive in this space. You'd much rather have a healthy debate over a law of physics, rather than over whether or not you included enough ketchup packets in their greasy to-go bag.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Try Out for a School Sport
If it were up to you, imaginative Pisces, you'd be locked away in a room with nothing but an easel, paintbrush and colors, with your fave album playing in the background. Eager to escape reality with a desire to sleep and spend time alone, trying out for a school sport sounds like a nightmare to you. You're one of the least competitive signs, and dealing with the intensity of fellow athletes going out for the team is likely to drive you mad. Not to mention, you're not really into sports. While you absolutely love the ocean and splashing around in a pool, trying out for water polo, for example, is the furthest thing from your mind.
