Some people are scurrying around (tissues in hand) to get that final yearbook signature, while others are counting down the minutes until they can finally say goodbye to high school (and all their lame classmates) once and for all.

Where do you stand on Diploma Day? Keep reading, because your zodiac sign is about to reveal all!

Aries (March 21 – April 19):

Aries, you're a no-nonsense go-getter. You hustled all through high school, working your butt off to get good grades while playing sports and taking on other extracurricular activities. While you're beyond thrilled to conquer the upcoming challenges of college, you do get a bit sentimental at graduation. Not only are you close to many members of the faculty, but you've bonded with many students, based on all of your involvement in various parts of school. Not to mention, you actually enjoyed the last four years, so saying goodbye is definitely bittersweet.


Taurus (April 20 – May 20):

Fancy Taurus, you're not too caught up in the ceremony. As long as what you're wearing underneath your gown is top-notch, and you can humbly brag to your peers about the fine travels you'll be going on this summer, you're A-OK.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20):

Ah, Gemini. Graduation is a mixed bag of emotions for you. Because you represent both a carefree, sociable side and a serious, restless side, your moods on this day are up and down. Part of you is excited to be with everyone in your grade one last time, and relive the best memories—while the other part of you is over the heat, anxiously sitting through the long (and dare we say tedious) ceremony and just wants to get this over with. The good news is you're not too tied to one specific feeling about the day.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22):

Sensitive Cancer, despite the rollercoaster of emotions you experienced in high school, you realize this is a really big day, and you want to make the most of it. This is the last time your entire class will all be together, and you want the day to be filled with fond memories of the last four years. You're especially chatty with various classmates all day long, reminiscing back to your 9th grade birthday party or when you had the biggest crush on so-and-so. You're totally ready to move on, but you want this day to be special.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22):

Flashy Leo, you're much less concerned about bidding adieu to your classmates than you are being greeted with the biggest congratulatory balloons and flower bouquets from your graduation guests. While some people prefer to live a life of subtlety, you, Leo, crave a spectacle. There's no way you're walking out of the ceremony without the attention drawn to you (this includes your outfit, too, of course)!


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

As the hardest-working sign of the zodiac, graduation is a very important day for you, Virgo. Not only do you get to show off all of your honor cords, but there's a good chance you'll be up at the podium, giving some kind of speech. Honors or not, this day represents four years of effort that you put into getting where you are today. You deserve a pat on the back as you embark on what's sure to be another successful chapter.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Libra, you're the peacemaker of the zodiac, and you're not about to graduate without ensuring you're on good terms with everyone. Whether it's a former close friend whom you drifted away from over the years, or an ex who broke up with you harshly, you're willing to let bygones be bygones because living a life of harmony is what helps you sleep at night. It's not that you feel compelled to remain in touch with all these people after you leave campus, but you do want to walk away with no ill will towards anyone (and vice versa).


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Graduation is tough for you in some ways, Scorpio. Your friendships are of utmost importance—and between reliving hundreds of memories and knowing you may not see certain pals again for a while, you do get a little emotional. But being the balanced sign you are, you're able to keep your cool, while some of your other friends are basically hauling tissue boxes. You're the one in your group who helps everyone maintain their composure when they're about to break down. You know this is somewhat of a sad day, but you're also looking ahead to the future, knowing that this is just one more life step with much more excitement to come.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21):

Sag, you're one popular lady on Grad Day. Why? Because you know how to make everyone laugh. Your lively spirit comes in handy while some of your classmates are sad to leave high school or are freaking out about the future. Not only do you loosen people up before the ceremony, but afterward, you're pulled in a million different directions with everyone trying to introduce you to their parents. Whether or not you're feeling emotional, your positive attitude and happy-go-lucky nature effortlessly get you through the day.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19):

Graduation Day is very by-the-books for you, Capricorn. As someone who always plays it safe, there will be no crazy outbursts or senior pranks from you. You'll attentively sit through the ceremony, graciously greet your guests afterward, say goodbye to some close friends and head home with your family. While you're certainly proud of yourself for receiving your high school diploma, you also know it's what everyone'supposed to do, so you don't feel like you've done anything particularly groundbreaking.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18):

Aquarius, you are the deepest thinker of the zodiac. Your love for words and communication has no bounds. That's why what really gets to you at graduation isn't the farewells, but rather the moving valedictorian speech. Whether you're close to the speaker or not, you find what they say to be inspirational and moving. You analyze their thoughts and think about how you can apply them to your life. When you get home and the reality of Grad Day has sunk in, you'll reflect on what they had to say.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20):

Pisces, you are the most caring and selfless sign of the zodiac. The only person you could possibly deem horrible is your P.E. teacher, who made you run a mile each semester. You've seen the good in everyone during high school, which makes saying farewell particularly tough. You're attentive during the ceremony because you believe every single student deserves proper acknowledgment for their achievements. You stick around for a while afterward, because there are so many people you have to either congratulate, thank or say something inspiring to.
