Taureans are full of wisdom. Betty Andrews, life coach, astrologer, and psychic at Fresh Start Registry, even goes so far as to call them the zodiac's intellectual treasure troves.

"Their voracious appetite for learning and acquiring knowledge drives them to explore diverse fields, from history and art to technology and mathematics," she says.

While they're okay with being a little nerdy, it's not going to be at the forefront of their personality, as they prefer to be reserved about this trait.

No one can find a solution in a tough situation better than this sign. "Capricorns' strategic minds and love for complex problem-solving make them top-tier nerds," says Andrews.

They're not the type to obsess over fictional characters, but they will have organized spreadsheets and in-depth PowerPoints at the ready.

Serious Capricorns may be offended at first by being called nerdy, but they'll quickly learn to embrace that side of themselves.

"This sign loves to follow the rules and has a hard time breaking them," says Stina Garbis, astrologer and owner of Psychic Stina. They may be the teacher's pet or want to do well academically, but their nerdiness is multi-faceted.

Libras also geek out when it comes to fandoms or the things they love. They'll be the ones dressing up as their favorite characters or having posters all over their walls.

As a sign ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, it's no surprise that they have an appreciation for all art forms—even the ones that are a little unconventional.

Rebellious Aquarians do things their way. They think differently than most people, which is where their nerdy side comes out.

"They thrive on exploring new technologies, programming languages, and futuristic concepts," says Andrews. They're unbelievably tech-savvy and are always looking for innovative ways to do things.

You'll often find them discussing the latest advancements in science or trying out a cool new gadget—Garbis says they are definitely nerdy in a cool way.

Andrews describes Virgo as an analytical perfectionist, which is a big contributing factor to their nerdy nature. "Their love for order and attention to detail makes them ideal candidates for geek status," she says.

Virgos are also incredibly intelligent. They can go on and on about the topics they love, and it'll be difficult to get them to stop talking.

These earth signs wear their nerdiness with pride, though, so don't be surprised if their bookshelves are organized alphabetically or if they can solve a Rubix Cube quicker than anyone else.

Geminis are wise beyond their years, and they won't let you forget it. If they're excited about something, they'll geek out hard. It's this, plus their ability to always keep conversations going, that makes them the nerdiest zodiac sign.

Garbis says Geminis are often stuck in their heads, which can make them a bit out of touch with the world around them. They would be the sign distracted by a math problem, she jokes.

In addition to their wisdom, these air signs also possess an innate curiosity. It drives them to explore a range of topics, and they'll never pass up the opportunity to talk about what they know.
