The Study Habit You Need to Improve, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Looking to improve your study game this school year? We've got you.

Studying night after night is hard, even for the most seasoned, straight-'A' students. Could your horoscope have something to do with it?

Below is the study habit you really need to improve on, based on your zodiac sign:

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Reading the Full Chapter

Hardheaded Aries likes to get to the finish line fast. Competitive by nature and remarkably impatient, hardheaded Rams tend to gloss over the "boring" details instead of reading everything. You like to get your studying done the quickest and most efficient way possible—but be careful, many times quiz questions come from the less interesting parts just to ensure you're reading the full chapter.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Avoiding Clutter

Taurus gals tend to be disorganized and cluttered because being around your things gives you a sense of security. Even though you consider your endless piles an organized mess, clutter subconsciously makes it harder for your mind to focus and retain the information you're trying to learn. Do yourself a solid and tidy up before you hit the books.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Being a Better Listener

Gemini gals have got the gift of gab! You love to talk and can always drum up a conversation with anyone, anywhere—especially in class. You're known as the class talker and frankly, you're not the best listener, which ends up making studying much harder (and more important). If you cut down on the talking in class and listened more, you'll have less to cram in each night.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Hosting Less Group Study Sessions

Our sensitive little Cancers always like staying connected with their loved ones, and an easy way to log extra friend time on a school night is to host a study session at your place. But sometimes, your desire to be around your friends and just hang supersedes your study time, so you don't get nearly as much done had you just studied solo.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Acting Like Less of a Know-It-All in Study Groups

Leos love to be center of attention, and even a study group is a chance for you to shine! Leos are naturally graced with charm, wit and creativity, which you exude naturally, so even if you do know all of the answers, give your peers a chance to answer and participate, too. And remember, it's a study group, which means it's not all about you.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Lessening Your Endless Quest for Perfection

Virgos are so detail oriented, so it's no surprise that you excel in a study environment—you were practically built for it! But your acute attention to detail, coupled with your desire to have everything perfect can have you up all night rewriting your thesis statement or practicing your speech for the umpteenth time. Go with your gut instinct and don't keep yourself up all night stressing about the small stuff.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Caring Too Little About Your Studies

Everyone loves a Libra, we know this. You're charming and charismatic, laid back and easy to get along with. You approach your studies with the same mindset, but usually tend to underestimate the amount of work you need to do. Your laissez-faire attitude towards your workload can get you in trouble, resulting in major cram sessions.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Letting Instagram Distract You

Scorpio ladies love to be mysterious, but you like to know everyone else's business at all times, even during designated study hours. We're all guilty of taking an unnecessary scroll (or three) through Instagram when we should be studying, but Scorpio gals take Insta-stalking to a whole new level. Do yourself a favor and put your phone in another room while you study so you don't get distracted, and then reward yourself with ample social media time once you've accomplished all of your work for the night.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Taking Too Many Breaks

Wanderlust-loving Sagittariuses are dreamers. You enjoy the scenic route no matter how long it takes, and you apply a similar theory to studying, taking as many breaks as your little heart desires, no matter how long it takes you to finish your work. Set timers for yourself and don't let yourself break until the timer goes off to lengthen the time between necessary snack and social media breaks.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Working Too Slowly

Capricorns are the OG workaholics, but you tend to work harder, not smarter, and you're most definitely slow. You're grounded, focused and have no problem taking your time with studying, but beware that others are putting themselves into overdrive and can leave you behind scholastically if you don't pick things up!

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Not Asking for Help When You Really Need It

Fearlessly independent Aquarians like to stand on their own two feet without help from others. You don't like to ask others for help, and really don't like to admit when you need help, even when you do. When it comes to studying, it's totally okay to ask your parents or a tutor for a little extra clarity if there's something that's just not clicking. That's why it's called learning!

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Getting Down on Yourself

While Pisces are known as the dreamers of the zodiac, you have a dark side. Pisces can be extremely hard on themselves and can be very pessimistic and overly emotional. This can definitely be a challenge with school if something isn't coming easy to you. Remember to take a deep breath and don't get down on yourself if you're not able to solve an equation on the first try!
