The Zodiac at School

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

The School for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

At school, you had a clear list of preferences, with sport classes or outdoor activities at the top of them, as they were good outlets for your overflowing energy. It is true that you could hardly sit still on your chair during boring lessons... You were sometimes punished for your unruly behaviour, and even for your aggressiveness. Luckily, it never lasted long. Better than anyone, you managed to improvise when there were unexpected tests. You were not the type to take instructions literally, and you preferred to find a solution using your creativity. Anxiety seldom impaired your abilities. Actually, it is when you are under pressure and rushing that you give of your best. If you have become a parent, you probably value your children’s capacity of autonomy, since you are not too patient. While you do not intend to redo their homework for them, you are the first one to galvanise them.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

The School for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

When you think of your school references, you often associate them with colours, flavours, or smells. That of the apples you bit as you walked, or that of home-made slices of toasted bread. You remember the wet grass by the roadside, the asphalt burnt by the sun just before the summer holidays, and the clothes carefully chosen for the sensuality of the material. Hopefully, the canteen was decent, for your results depended on how well your sensual needs were met! Having said this, Taurus is an obedient pupil who can make big efforts. Many teachers were astonished to see the level of your concentration and your commitment. Owing to your kind temperament, you treat children considerately and guide them patiently to follow your path. Education was and must remain a nice opportunity to enjoy life by blending warm exchanges and learning process.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

The School for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

With or without an Internet connection, you were a sort of unavoidable relay station of the school. You were, of course, the person who sent out invitations for a party – pyjama parties nowadays. Besides, it is impossible that you did not get punished for your chatter. You could not help it, for you had to make a witty comment or a joke, and you wanted everybody to notice your talent for repartee. A habit your teachers were not really fond of. Luckily, as a good Mercurian, you always loved studying. The more varied the lessons, the more appealing to your brain. On the other hand, if the speaker was boring, you were unable to concentrate, and you started fidgeting. You were good at numerous subjects, especially foreign languages, trade, and geography. If you are a parent now, although you never acknowledge it, you observe with some envy your children going through the same steps as you. Acquiring knowledge, and experiencing one’s first stirs at school, what a bliss!

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

The School for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Oh, back-to-school memories! Thinking of the first report or of the stationery shopping, so much nostalgia. If education has given you the possibility to pursue your dreams, you are most likely to cherish this period of your life. You will forever remember your seat, often in the back of the classroom, near the radiator and the window. Perhaps in an old building – with wood tables on which generations of pupils left pen graffiti or ink stains – and chestnut trees in the yard. A sentimentalist and a poet, you treasure those indelible traces which recall the serene days when you did not have to make important decisions, and you only needed to get good marks. As a parent, it is probable that every detail comes back to your mind clearly. With the children, you experience again the intensity of major moments, including the apprehension preceding important tests! School is such a wonderful way to learn about life!

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

The School for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

When you were younger, you happened to behave with arrogance because you overdid things. You prepared your arrivals in the classroom as if you entered a stage: fashionable attire, most gorgeous accessories, and above all, the nonchalance which goes hand in hand with them. You have always been blessed with some sort of aura, let’s make it clear. You were a Casanova or the most beautiful girl of the high school. You disliked attending your classes whenever you judged that your teachers were not precise enough. Since you had a high opinion of yourself, you demanded that the quality of the lessons deserve your attention. Luckily, your generosity was your rescuer, and you readily lent a hand. Today, you know how to be caring with children so that they fully blossom. You consider that education is a noble task, and you are glad to add your personal touch. Provided you remain traditional, you cannot be beaten.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

The School for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

At school more than anywhere else, you embody exemplarity. In those days, you used to do your homework with method, writing with great diligence the instructions your teachers gave. Discipline, organisation, mastery, you had innate qualities for learning. Therefore, you got good marks, and although you were not too creative, people always praised your industrious nature. The only problem might have been your shyness, which prevented you from shining at oral exams. You have not changed. You never forget to prepare or to check your children’s bags. You believe that they should develop a sense of responsibility as early as possible. However, you should be careful not to be stricter than the teachers. It is out of the question that the children neglect their homework or skip a lesson, even a sport class. You may be uptight, like Bree Van de Camp (the red-haired lady of Desperate Housewives). When you invite children to birthday parties, they are likely to get unforgettable memories.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

The School for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Who was the most popular boy of the class, or the queen of the ball? What a silly question! You, of course. Everyone guessed that you were mainly interested in meetings in high school. So, even though you were not the best or the most hard-working student, you did learn what was essential: the art of diplomacy in order to convince people, including your teachers. Thanks to your natural kindness, you were perfect whenever you needed to find a credible excuse. Very early, you used your charming manners to get out of a tight spot. Adult, you think with nostalgia of your first experiences, important friendships and irresistible crushes. It was probably during your college years that your heart was torn apart for the first time, but you have been able to move on. Today, you are hoping that your children will faithfully follow in your steps. There is no doubt that it is with great pride that you will hang on the wall the school year group photo where they look most beautiful.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

The School for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Withdrawn, with an enigmatic expression on the face, this is how you looked like at school. Because you were able to conceal your feelings, it was hard to understand if you were fond of the various academic disciplines, and this could have resulted in adaptation difficulties. In the most serious cases, you might have been the black sheep of the school, the person who was punished for aggressive impulses or for the will to control people. Whether a boy or a girl, you have provoked fights or at least caused stirs in the schoolyard. You have necessarily turned a teacher against you. In parallel, because there is no half-measure for you, you passionately dedicated yourself to a subject, sciences, languages, or history, no matter what. You were the best and the most relentless learner. Today, you keep extreme feelings, between love and hatred, about your schooldays. Try to pass the torch on to your children, but spare them any excessive behaviour.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

The School for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Owing to your nature fond of movement, school has sometimes been synonymous with heavy constraints. You had a hard time remaining concentrated when the lessons were boring, and you were focusing on thousands of desires for new horizons. Your mind often escaped as you just looked by the window, and it has been necessary to call you to order curtly. Luckily, education was the first door towards a more exciting world than nursery school. You felt that learning foreign languages was directly linked to the possibility to practice them in your faraway travels. You were fascinated by geography, and you had the knack for rejoicing your classmates by making your reports livelier. A real budding reporter! It has not been necessary to encourage you to embrace higher education. Indeed, you considered that university and exchanges are the logical continuation for improving your knowledge. As an adult, you watch with optimism what your children do.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

The School for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

School is a serious topic. Even when you were a child, you would not mind if playtime was cancelled. Once you get started, you could hardly relax. It must be said that you were convinced that you did not work hard enough, even though your homework was always extremely good. You remember that you were very young when you understood that your future rested in your hands. Concentrated, hard-working, willing to make long-lasting efforts, you never shirked from long studies. Moreover, you felt that every success had to be deserved, and that it was difficult to achieve, since you always raised the bar higher. When it comes to children’s academic results, you are an ambitious, or even inflexible, parent. You are demanding, towards yourself as well as towards people. However, you feel more comfortable when the learning process involves a great deal of autonomy. You believe that self-teaching is the best way to learn, and this is what you tell your children. Be careful not to put too much pressure on them.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

The School for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Attending a state school? Not certain that this is motivating or exciting. You have never appreciated Charlemagne, but at least, you took the opportunity to make new experiences and to nurture strong friendships. You were quite talented for helping newcomers become integrated in the class, especially those who were different. If you have had the chance to benefit from some form of alternative education which offered the possibility to develop your personality and your gifts, you have been fulfilled. Today, you do not hesitate to forget timetables and programmes, as you prefer that your children find their own path. Pedagogues such as Rudolf Steiner or Maria Montessori, who left a considerable pedagogic material, match your ideas. It is out of the question to toe the line for the sake of school formatting. Otherwise, you are ready to start a revolution, or at least, a demonstration!

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

The School for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Always (a little bit) in the clouds, you have forgotten once again to take your school things. Or you have lost them on the way, unless you have experienced all kinds of misadventures which explain that you were not ready. Who knows? People used to say that you are gifted for artistic or musical matters, as well as for essays or poetry. In short, all the areas of the programme which allowed you to give free rein to your imagination. Nevertheless, it would be quite simplistic to limit yourself to this list. With your intuition, you could often guess the examination topics, and you also knew how to cloud an issue so that your weaknesses went unnoticed. Thanks to your skill in psychology, you were popular with everyone, students and teachers. Once an adult, it is useless to ask you to remember with precision what you have learnt at school. You keep an impressionist image of it. But you know that one can survive it anyway.
