Astrology 101: How To Spot Each Sign … In A College Class

It’s Schooled week here at The Frisky, which means we’re giving you tips on every aspect of the college experience, from dealing with crappy roommates to figuring out which classes are most skip-able. We couldn’t resist bringing some astrology into the mix (because hello, that’s what we do), and came up with quick list of ways you can spot each sign in your college classes. Which sign is the best student? Which sign is asking a million questions? Which sign seems to think they’re the professor? Read on to find out!

Aries (March 21st-April 19th): Arguing with the teacher and trying to spark a lively debate among their classmates, even if the topic (algebra, for example) is hardly debatable.

Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): Diligently taking notes while complaining under their breath about the lack of structure in this class and how the professor put something on the test last week that they promised they wouldn’t.

Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): You know the person who asks a ton of questions and prefaces each one with a 10-minute personal backstory? Yeah, that’s a Gemini.

Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): Sitting in the middle or near the back, trying to stay below the radar so they don’t get called on. They appear calm but are internally stressing out about the possibility of talking in front of the group.

Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): Always the class clown, Leo is cracking jokes about everything and turning even the most boring presentation into a performance that has the whole class laughing.

Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): Furiously scribbling notes with intent focus (and color-coded pens for different subtopics), repeatedly asking for clarification on when the next test is, and simultaneously checking their iPhone for social updates.

Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): Chatting with the people around them about everything from midterm grades to weekend plans, and on their third warning from the professor to please keep it down and pay attention.

Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): Sitting toward the back, observing and listening. You might not hear a peep out of them until something comes up that they have a strong opinion about, but then you’ll definitely hear what they have to say.

Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st): No matter the topic, Sagittarians always have something to add. They might be sitting in a desk, but based on how much they’re talking and how confident they are, they might as well be the teacher.

Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): Sitting near the front, nodding along with the lecture, and writing down every single word the teacher says so they don’t miss anything. They inevitably become the professor’s favorite student.

Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th): Aquarians can’t resist playing devil’s advocate, especially if an opinionated professor is involved. They’re always asking challenging questions and finding a way to draw attention to the other side of an issue.

Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): Doodling and trying to reign in their wandering mind. By the end of the class, they might not have written down any notes pertaining to the class, but they will probably have sketched out a creative masterpiece.
