Aries (March 21 – April 19): Start a School Club
As an Aries, you've always been a natural-born leader, so it's time to start putting those abilities to use. When you talk, people listen, and others have always been drawn to your wit and charisma, so if you start a school club, recruiting other students to your cause will be a breeze. Just pick something you're passionate about, and the rest will be easy. And while you tend to start lots of things but don't always follow through, the rest of your club will hold you accountable and ensure your success.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Run a Fundraiser
While most students would yawn at the prospect of raising money for a worthy cause, you're the first to jump at the opportunity. You've always been practical, reliable and good with finances, so it's time to utilize those abilities in a powerful way. You've been itching to do something that actually helps people, and you've always been a doer, not a talker. Whether you're managing a school carnival or a bake sale, you know exactly what how to make an impact.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Commit to an Extracurricular Activity
The dual nature of Gemini is symbolized by twins, as there are two sides to your personality. Because you're often torn between two trains of thought, you tend to be indecisive, often joining lots of clubs and activities at the beginning of the school year only to abandon them after a couple of weeks. This school year, it's time to change that. Pick one extracurricular that you're really excited about and focus on sticking with it. If you don't spread yourself so thin, you'll be surprised by the results.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Tell Your Crush You Like Them
The loving and emotional nature of Cancer makes you prone to crushes, but you can also be highly guarded and secretive, so chances are that they have no idea. It's about time they found out! Luckily for you, you're also highly intuitive, so you'll sense exactly when the time is right. There's no sense living the rest of your life now knowing how they feel about you in return. If it ends up negatively affecting your friendship, maybe they weren't worth crushing on in the first place.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Help a Friend Break Out of Their Shell
As a Leo, you've always been a proud extrovert who has no trouble making friends, but you're well aware that this isn't true of everyone. Because you're friendly with pretty much everyone, you know quite a few people who struggle to socialize. It's time to help a shy friend who wants to branch out. Your social circle is bigger than anyone's, so put them in a situation where you know they'll be heard and loved and help them open up.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Dance the Night Away
Virgo is the worrier of the zodiac, and as such, you can over-analyze situations and go through several worst case scenarios whenever a new situation arises. Don't let this prevent you from going to the big school dance! 99.9% of all the horrible things you can envision will never happen, and your ultra-prepared self will know exactly how to deal with them if they occur. And while you hate being the center of attention, you should try it every once in a while. You just might like it.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Make Time For Yourself
As a Libra, you tend to be ultra-involved in everything going on at school. You're a peacekeeper and a lover of fairness, so you feel the need to be everywhere at once so that everything is done right. You're also a people-pleaser and have a lot of trouble refusing when people ask for your involvement—which is often. It's time you learned to say no every once in a while and made some time for yourself. You need time with nature and the arts to maintain a happy heart and soul, so make the time.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Tutor a Friend
You've always been hardworking and studious, and that reflects in your good grades. But some friends aren't necessarily in the same boat. If you know someone is struggling with their studies, offer to lend a helping hand and see if you can put your ambition into something that extends beyond yourself. Whether their issue is with motivation or understanding, you can help. Once you do, you'll find that their success is as satisfying as your own.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Write, Write, Write
You're a philosopher, a dreamer and an adventurer, and you don't have to hold that back during the school year. Use your spare time to get all of those ideas in your head onto paper—or at least a computer screen. Blog those feelings you have about your favorite new superhero movie. Write fanfiction about the TV couple you daydream scenarios for during class. Finally get that novel idea out on paper. You've always got words and notions twirling around in your brain, and it's time to let them out.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Strike a Balance
As a Capricorn, you always get your homework done, ace your most important exams and make time for your highly academic extracurriculars. You tend to be extremely focused, interested primarily in success. While you're content with this way of life, others might accuse you of being kind of boring—and they wouldn't be entirely wrong. Make some time to prove you're not just a robot by showing them how fun you can be. When you dedicate some time to friendship, you'll see how much better life can feel.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Make Your School a Better Place
You're an earth-loving free spirit who's always wanted to improve the world around you. Why not start on your school's campus? Chat with officials and see if you can start a food garden there, place recycling bins next to school trash cans or even plant some trees around the quad. Set an eco-friendly example and convince your fellow classmates to follow suit. Even small changes can make your school a noticeably greener, brighter place. Your impact might even spread beyond your campus.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Learn an Instrument
You're emotional, artistic and have always been drawn to music on a spiritual level, so it's about time you learned a new instrument. If you already play one, it's time to mix things up by taking on something entirely new, and if you don't, it's time to double down and unlock your musical abilities. It takes a lot of time and practice to master an instrument, but knowing you, your sensitive side will empower you to keep with it until you're able to play what's in your heart.
