What Your Kid’s Learning Style Will Be, Based On Their Zodiac Sign

Ad failed to load

Once my kids started school, I realized all kids don't learn the same way. Different kids have different learning styles and need access to information in different ways, which can create conflict in the classroom, especially if a teacher doesn't know how to reach every student. I knew finding out the kind of learners my kids were going to be before they went to school was going to be incredible helpful. And since I don't have a crystal ball, I consulted the Zodiac to see if you can predict what your kid's learning style will be, based on their sign.

I was pretty surprised to find that my kids' astrological profiles were pretty spot on when it comes to their learning styles. According to, there are four main learning styles: visual (learns by seeing), auditory (learns by hearing), read/write (learns by reading or writing), and kinesthetic (learns by doing). My four pre- and elementary school-aged kids have distinct learning styles and astrological signs, and for the most part they seem totally accurate.

Take my daughter, for instance. She learns best by reading and writing, capable of translating almost any concept into story form. Which makes total sense when you consider that she is also a Gemini, who are known to absolutely love books. My step-daughter on the other hand is a rare auditory learner. She learns best when you explain the information in multiple ways, or even by having a chance to explain it to you. She will talk your ear off if you let her. She is also an Aries, which makes sense when you consider her confidence, leadership skills, and how much enthusiasm she has for things she enjoys. I just wish that Adam Lambert songs weren't one of those things.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)


Capricorns are disciplined, reliable, and they are totally the rule followers of the Zodiac. As a result, they will likely seek to learn information how it's presented, rather than seeking alternative methods. They are known to have enviable self-control, so may have an ability to sit still and pay attention in class.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Aquarius-born individuals are great listeners, deep thinkers, and intellectual problem-solvers. This might mean that they will be rare auditory learners, capable of digesting information they hear, which seems to definitely be true for my youngest son. He is a masterful mimic when it comes to repeating words and sounds.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)


According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, people born under this sign are pretty much the friendliest, most even-tempered people around. They will likely learn well in any environment, with any teacher, and work well with others on group projects.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are confident, enthusiastic, determined folks with a tendency to be impatient. My Aries step-daughter is an auditory learner, who loves to talk things through. Your Aries child might also be a kinesthetic learner, preferring to leap into a project or lesson head-first to figure it out.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)


According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Taurus-born people love working with their hands, "considering touch and taste the most important of all senses." They are definitely kinesthetic learners, preferring to figure things out by accomplishing a task on their own.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

My daughter is a textbook Gemini — curious and affectionate, but also anxious and easily bored. Geminis are ruled by the planet Mercury, which according to Astrology Zodiac Signs, represents writing. Writing things out is definitely my daughter's learning style. She loves to read and write things down, frequently translating concepts and ideas into amazing short stories.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)


Cancers are known for their sensitivity and intuition. According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, when it comes to completing tasks, Cancers will get the job done, but prefer to work independently. For this reason, they are likely to be reading/writing or kinesthetic learners, who can take time to figure out the material on their own, rather than relying on a teacher to lead the way.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

A Leo is a fire sign who loves being entertained. You are likely to find your Leo child a visual learner, preferring to have the information presented to them, rather than having to seek it out on their own.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)


Virgos are known for being all work and no play. When it comes to learning styles they are definitely likely to be reading/writing, as Virgos are analytical and love to read, like fictional Virgo Hermione Granger. According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, they are ruled by the planet Mercury, which means writing is also a strength for people born under this sign.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Libras have a tendency to sit back and observe any situation to avoid conflict at all costs. My Libra step-son is a visual learner, which is apparent in the classroom, but also in how he learned to play video games by watching other players.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

My preschooler is totally a kinesthetic learner through and through, which makes some sense considering he's also my Montessori kid and had access to a ton of freedom to learn his own way. He is tactile and great at learning how to build towers or performer killer dance moves by trying it out. I just wish he'd stop taking things apart. He's also a Scorpio, which makes total sense, as he is brave, likes to experience things, and is constantly seeking answers to any number of questions.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Sagittarius-born people have a tendency to be a temperamental, impatient bunch. They are also experiential people, preferring to be free to travel and explore the world around them. They are, you probably guessed, likely to be kinesthetic learners.
