5 Zodiac Signs That Are Smarter Than You Think

Have you ever felt like someone knows more than they are letting on? Every zodiac sign can be intelligent; some are stronger in specific areas (emotional intelligence, social abilities, musical skills, etc.). But a few signs are much cleverer than they may seem. Here are the five zodiac signs smarter than you think, and why their brilliance goes unrecognized.


Every zodiac sign rules a set of body parts. These body parts can be the sign’s greatest assets, most beautiful features, or the areas most prone to illness and injury. Aries rules the brain, eyes, head, face, and skull – meaning that, although Aries people may be susceptible to head injuries, they also have powerful minds.

Aries people are fast at everything they do, including thinking. They have sharp minds that arrive at solutions to problems quickly and are swift with comebacks. But because of their impulsive and sometimes careless nature, Aries may appear less intelligent than they truly are. They are more concerned with getting the job done quickly than perfecting every detail. Aries are often praised for their bravery and physical strength, but seldom for their wit. Their intellect goes overlooked in favor of their other gifts.


Just as every zodiac sign rules a set of body parts, each sign also has a guiding celestial body. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect. Mercury’s influence makes Geminis endlessly curious and fascinated by the world around them. They love having conversations to explore fresh topics and learn new things. Many are avid readers, as they can never quite satisfy their thirst for knowledge.

Geminis are social butterflies, flitting from friend to friend or group to group. They move around so much that they may not linger long enough for anyone to recognize the depth of their intellect. They can also be quite dramatic, and their love of silliness and gossip can make them appear less intelligent than they truly are.


Each sign correlates with one of four natural elements: fire, air, earth, or water. Scorpio is a water sign, and water signs are known for being sensitive, emotional, and intuitive.

Scorpio perfectly embodies the phrase “still waters run deep.” They carefully measure their words and actions. While they may be quiet, they are always thinking, planning, and scheming. They like having the upper hand, and they will acquire whatever knowledge is needed to keep themselves on top.

Although deeply sensitive, they don’t wear their hearts on their sleeves. Scorpios also tend to hide their intelligence. They don’t need everyone to recognize their brilliance, and they know it serves them better at times to seem less clever than they are.


Sagittarius is guided by Jupiter, the planet of expansion, travel, philosophy, and luck. This means that Sagittarians are always working on personal growth. You can catch a Sagittarius reading the latest popular self-help book or trying a new wellness trend. Their insatiable wanderlust means they have explored parts of the world most haven’t seen, and they learned important life lessons along the way.

Sagittarius’ wisdom is exactly what makes their intellect so hard to spot. They are smart enough not to care what other people think, and they truly live life for themselves. They aren’t out to prove their intelligence or show off how much they know. They would rather ask questions and learn more instead of showcasing their knowledge. Also, as a fire sign, Sagittarians often take bold risks that others may not respect or see as the smartest choices. But, thanks to Jupiter’s lucky influence, these risks tend to work out well for Sagittarians.


Capricorn is the most ambitious and hard-working sign of the zodiac. They will stop at nothing until they reach their goals. Ruled by Saturn, the planet of structure and authority, Capricorns are very methodical. They always have a plan and a backup plan. If you ever need advice or words of wisdom, go to a Capricorn – just don’t expect them to sugarcoat it

But Capricorns keep their cards close to their chest, so you’ll never know just how intelligent they are. Although they desire admiration from others, it’s not as important to them as getting what they want. Capricorns tend to hide their true selves, including their brilliance, and only those closest to them ever get to know how smart and insightful they are
