Turning 30 can feel scary at first, but a few seconds after blowing out the candles, we realized it was…awesome. Not caring if you have plans on Friday night? Wearing whatever the hell you want? Never having to share a bathroom with three roommates again? Sign us up.
Then again, some people actually don’t mind going back to the carefree days of high school, simply because it was a blast for them. While many of us hit our stride later in life, a lucky few figured it out in third-period study hall. So, we’re consulting the stars. Find out more about the two signs who peak in their 30s and the one sign who ruled high school below.
The 2 Zodiac Signs That Peak in Their 30s
1. Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Eccentric Aquarius may not have fit in with the “cool kids” in high school, but in her 30s, that enterprising and innovative spirit definitely works for her. Her quirky sense of style probably got her some serious side-eye back in the day, but in her 30s, this trendsetting air sign is the office fashionista. She’ll know all the different ways to style a turtleneck. She’ll rock Crocs with such grace, you’ll want a pair. And even if she’s not a Gen Z-er, she can pull off mom and dad jeans like the rest of them. What once made her peers raise their eyebrows at her in high school is now the quality that makes her the most alluring person to be around in her 30s.
2. Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
Ambitious Capricorn’s Spice Girls planner was jam-packed with every extracurricular activity they could possibly cram in there. They were probably the captain of the volleyball team, president of the yearbook club and were vying for valedictorian, so their social life took a backseat. In their 30s, however, Caps have figured out the balance between work and play and are living their best lives. While they’re still relentless workaholics—probably in top management positions at their jobs—they’ve found the value in appreciating the finer things in life. From luxe vacations to relaxing spa days, when they’re not leading their teams to supersede their quarterly goals at the office, these earth signs love reveling in the fruits of their labor.
The One Sign Who Ruled High School
Libra (September 23 to October 21)
If there’s one sign whose high school stories are the stuff of legend, it’s Libra. Their grades may not have been the best, but they had charm to spare. These social butterflies were friends with everyone on the debate team, all the basketball jocks and every clique in between. Because they got along with everyone, they were the ones selected to host the annual spelling bee, MC Homecoming and got the lead in every school play. Oh, and of course, they were prom queen. While Libras carried their outgoing personality into adulthood, they didn’t have that cringey, awkward high school experience the rest of us did. (Lucky.)
