The Type of Student You Were Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Have you wondered why you were the type of student that you were in school? Have you often wondered by certain aspects of your school career that were important to you whereas others were not? You will find that out right now because your sun sign most definitely had a large influence on your learning style as well as the characteristics of yourself in class.

Aries – The Passionate Overachiever

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign that rules passion, energy, and initiation. That means that the Aries student is the type that possesses those traits. They have always had that strong desire to become the top student, to make it to the honor roll, and to ace every exam. This type is very driven.

However, sometimes the Aries student would become cocky and get ahead of themselves. That means they would think they would ace a test that they wouldn’t study for and would find out the hard way that they had to study by not passing! This would cause them to crash but then they would quickly realize they had to put in the work to achieve their goals.

Taurus – The Responsible Student That Balances Work and Fun

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that rules stability, security, and routine. And with that said, the Taurus student is the responsible type to show up for a class on time and would get their assignments done on time as well. They also study hard for tests.

And the asset that the Taurus has is that they know when they have studied enough to the point that they can have some fun and have a break. That means the Taurus will finish studying and will then go right to watching a movie while enjoying a snack to unwind until it is another school day.

Gemini – Aces the Subjects That Interest Them but Doesn’t Care About School Otherwise

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that rules communication, versatility, and changes. Those who have this sun sign can be moody and tend to do what interests them. Geminis love to learn since the sign naturally rules communication, however, Gemini students will only be interested in studying subjects that truly does get their attention.

That means Geminis are the types to ace classes that teach the subjects that interest them. However, when it comes to other subjects that they don’t care about, they could not care less how well or poorly they did in those classes. If they had to get the credit, they would just make a mediocre attempt to pass.

Cancer – The Quiet One

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that rules anything that has to do with nurturing and the home. That means that since Cancers prefer to be at home, they are more likely to be introverted. And that is why Cancerian students are the ones who are quiet in class and just listen and observe.

They do pay attention because if the teacher calls out to them and asks them to talk about the topic being taught, they will answer well. They just are not the type to actively participate unless they are called upon.

Leo – The One That Is Winging It

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign that rules playfulness, being in the spotlight, creativity, and youth. That means the Leo student would find a way to wing it by passing their courses without really putting much work into it.

That means they would be the type to find someone at a party and pay them to do their homework. However, at the same time, they will be responsible when they absolutely have to and will do great when they do such as taking an exam. That means they will pay others to do their homework while they spend time studying for exams and they end up finding a way to ace it!

Virgo – The Stressed Out High-Achiever

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that rules work, service, health, and getting the details right. That means that the Virgo student will take their studies seriously and will do what they can to make sure that they are high-achievers by acing their tests and assignments, just like the Aries student.

However, unlike the Aries student, they are nervous about it and very high-strung. They will obsess over not just doing well on a test or an assignment, but by getting a perfect score. They will be the ones kept up at night studying and drinking energy drinks to have the stamina to write the tests and do the work. They take their work very seriously and are not calm about it either.

Libra – The Procrastinator

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and it is an air sign that rules fairness, balance, and beauty. However, laziness and indecisiveness can also be associated with the sign. This means those who have this sun sign are likely to be the type of students to leave things at the last minute.

They would much prefer to take a nap or watch television eating their favorite snack instead of studying. They only know they have to study when it is the night before the exam or test, and they cram it all in. They really do things at the very last minute.

Scorpio – The Sharp Student

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents intensity, passion, and extremes. Those who have this sun sign are known to be extremely smart and these students may be quiet as they are similar to the Cancer student by not actively participating in class discussions.

However, they most definitely listen very well to what is being discussed. They will do additional research on their own if necessary, and that is how they ace their assignments and tests! They are quiet but they most definitely are paying attention and will surprise teachers with their answers.

Sagittarius – Inquisitive, Sharp, But Not Always Responsible

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and it is a fire sign that represents optimism, adventure, and exploring. And that means Sagittarians naturally are inquisitive and have a love for learning. That is why the Sagittarian student will be paying attention quite well to what is being taught. Especially if the subject interests them.

However, the problem is that even though they are absorbing information that they are being taught, they are not always responsible when it comes to meeting deadlines and studying for tests. They will still prefer to go and party even if there is a test coming up the next day. They will take a chance on writing the test hungover. They like to learn but they also like to have fun, and not always at the appropriate times.

Capricorn – Takes School Very Seriously

Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac and it is an earth sign that rules business, organization, and anything that is basically serious. And it is not a surprise that the Capricorn student would take their work extremely seriously.

In fact, this type of student has a lot of parallels to the Virgo student. They make sure that they attend all classes unless it is absolutely necessary that they can’t. They always make sure that they study hard for tests and do their assignments on time. They do have this inner fear of failure.

However, the Capricorn has a wild side that they try to ignore. And when they do, they become more stressed out because they don’t believe in having fun. If they loosen up and relax at a party every now and then, they will see that having a good time is what is needed to function just fine.

Aquarius – The Type of Student That Prefers to Learn Independently

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, which is an air sign that represents innovation, uniqueness, rebellion, and marching to their own drummer. If the Aquarius had a choice, they would be the first to take their courses online through correspondence at home. However, since that option is not available in many places, they will reluctantly go to class to learn but will make it clear that they are not interested in being part of any group.

In fact, the Aquarius is likely to skip class or roll in late due to this reason. They will, however, skip classes, not for the same reasons that others do. They will still study what is being taught even while skipping class. That means they will go to a coffee shop, or a nearby park to study. They like to learn but they prefer to do it on their own.

Pisces – The Easily Discouraged Student

Pisces is the twelfth sign of the zodiac and it is a water sign that represents dreaminess, creativity, and emotions. And those who have this sun sign are quite emotional to the point that they break down often. That also means the Pisces student would have a very hard time with failure and disappointment and will be likely to want to give up. They become easily discouraged.

That means if they have a hope to get into a particular career path, they will end up wanting to give up on it if they end up failing one test in a subject that is related. They become pessimistic easily, and this is a common challenge they face at school. And it is something they often struggle with in life.

If not all of these characteristics of how you were as a student resonated with you, then look at your moon sign, and your rising sign. That would most definitely have an influence on how you were as a student. Why not talk about some of your experiences at school?
