How You Start Your School Day, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Sometimes, the biggest struggle of the school day is actually starting it.

Some of us make it a priority to leave the house with a full face of makeup, while others consider the snooze button their best friend.

While everyone has to deal with at least some burden of kicking off a weekday AM effectively, we all handle it differently. Find out how you start your school day, based on your zodiac sign, below.


Aries (March 21 – April 19): You Skip the Snooze Button

Whether it's school, work, or heck, even a lazy Saturday, you are up and at 'em bright and early, fiery Aries. Even if you have a long, dreary day ahead, you welcome it with open arms. To you, time wasted is success wasted. Why catch a few extra ZZZs when those minutes could be spent cramming in a last minute study sesh, whipping up a hot cup o' caffeine or getting some texts and emails out of the way for the day? You're the most ambitious sign of the zodiac, and nothing will stand in your way of success.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): You Have a Lavish Routine

Whether it's boiling a hot cup of Mighty Leaf Earl Grey tea, taking a luxurious, 15-minute shower, or tackling your 7-step beauty regimen, everything that goes into your well-structured morning is fit for the queen you are. Self-indulgent Taurus, you have no problem waking up a little early each morning to make sure you kick off the day with just a "few" of your fave things.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): It Changes Depending on the Day

As the sign of the twins, Gemini, you take on each day differently. Due to your dual personalities, one day you could be stressed out, using every excuse to stay in bed, while the next, you could jump right out from under the covers, anticipating the day that lies ahead. If it's a stressor on anyone, it's the parent who gets your day going. They just don't know what to expect each morning!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): You Take a Relaxing Shower to Calm Your Mind

Oh, sensitive cancer—you're not a sign that wakes up with a clear head. Whether you have a million thoughts running through your mind about that test you have to take later, or you're anxiously contemplating whether your crush likes you back, your emotions send you into a tailspin from the moment you open your eyes. When you finally retire the snooze button for the morning, you force yourself into a hot shower to wash away any lingering anxiety, with the hopes of a clean slate for the day.


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): You Head Straight to the Nearest Mirror

Some signs would take sleep over sprucing, but you're not one of them! A Leo is all about making a grand entrance wherever she goes, and your high school is no exception. Whether it's checking your face for any new zits, or busting out the cleanser to start your intensive morning beauty routine, the first thing on your mind when you begin your day is looking your best—and fixing whatever might prevent you from getting there.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept 22): You Cram in a Mini Study Session

Morning or night, it doesn't matter, Virgo—you'll never let an opportunity to study slip through the cracks. Driven and committed, you're more than happy to sacrifice an extra long snore sesh for the sake of your studies. Whether it's a major exam, a minor quiz or a group presentation, it will get the most dedicated attention from you. You value your future more than almost any other sign, and you therefore are willing to put in extra work now, in exchange for some major payoff later.


Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): You Wake Up Just Minutes Before It's Time to Leave for School

While some signs can't leave for school without a full face of makeup, Libra, on the other hand, is lucky if they even have time to get dressed. The snooze button is your best friend, and you don't require any fancy routines or colorful outfits for the day—you just plan to sit in the back of class and giggle with your friends anyway.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): You Follow a Strict Routine

Scorpio, you're a sign that values a serious regimen, and you go absolutely ballistic when your routine is thrown off. Scorpios have differing interests and ways of doing things, but their need for structure is the same across the board. You have zero patience for your sibling's shower that's going an extra 10 minutes long, or your mom's early morning phone call that prevents you from getting the timely ride to school that you so desperately need. But provided your strict routine goes according to plan, your day begins on the right foot.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): You Go for a Quick Run or Partake in Some Kind of Outdoor Workout

You wake up with a lot of energy, Sag! The upbeat, outdoorsy nature of your sign keeps you active—even first thing in the morning. Whether you crave the dewy scent of the air outside, or you just want to get your blood flowing, you're almost always eager to throw on some sweats and go for a quick run or other form of outdoor exercise before heading off to school.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): You Double-Check Everything

Whether it's school supplies or fully filled-out homework, your early morning is spent frantically assuring yourself that everything is in order. Got an essay to turn in today? You're rereading it through three more times. Have a math assignment? You triple-check to make sure no answer is blank. Lunch packed? Pens and pencils? Books?

As the most responsible sign of the zodiac, Cap, you never let anything fall through the cracks. Heck, even your parents rely on you in the morning to make sure they have everything they need for work. Whew, once you finally get that out of the way, time to sit down and enjoy a healthy cereal pour before making your way to school.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): You Write Down Your Dreams From the Night Before

Imaginative Aquarius, your creative juices are consistently flowing, even first thing in the morning. When you wake up, you immediately jot down your dreams from the night before so you can interpret a greater meaning. Sometimes you use these dreams to guide you to future decision-making, and other times the dreams provide inspiration for ideas in your school or work life. You're never one to pass up an opportunity to create something new.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): You Reply to All Your AM Texts

Pisces, as the most selfless sign of the zodiac, you respond to all your texts first thing in the morning, before tending to things actually pertaining to you. Whether a pal has a last-minute question about an exam that day, or someone needs your feedback on their potential #OOTD, you waste no time fielding all questions or concerns from your social circle. Does it often keep you from making it to school on time or leaving the house looking your best? Yep, but you don't mind because your joy comes from helping others.
