6 zodiac signs who lecture others
Zodiac

Dad was a lecturer, and we always made fun of him because he truly did act in a way that led us to believe he imagined himself as some university professor at the podium, giving us all valuable lessons for life. Of course, it wasn't always lessons — sometimes it was just a lot of smoke and mirrors, and the sound of his own voice ringing happily in his own ears.

We see this a lot these days, especially now that social media unites us in constant commentary. Who can resist the opportunity to school someone in something we are certain they can't possibly know? And if we think about astrology, the zodiac signs who lecture others have just the right personalities to do so.

Of course, not everyone feels that way, but there are certainly many who do. In fact, it's a need — this ego call to correct others, to make others know what's right, according to whomever is doing the lecturing. If only lecturing was restricted to intelligence; however, it's not, and the desire to lecture isn't always the best way to prove you're right. Sometimes, being the Great Lecturer ends up making you look the fool for even trying. Still, they persist!

1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You do like to take the lead and you feel personally responsible to educating everyone around you on whatever topic you feel expert about. Sometimes you do it to get approval, and sometimes you do it because you seriously want to get people together for all the right reasons.

You're good at public speaking and people warm to your lectures every time. You are charismatic and we want to listen.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You do have a need to be correct, and even more, not contradicted, so if you happen to find yourself in a situation where you are receiving flack for something you find unfair, you'll hand it right back to the flack-giver in a damning, hurtful lecture.

You believe people need to respect you, and should they show you anything less than ultimate respect, you show them exactly what you think of them. And that could take a few hours, because you certainly do keep a long list of grievances around for such an event.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

"I think, therefore I lecture" might be your catchphrase, as this kind of behavior is second nature to you. You want those around you to be informed with the facts. Truth is of utmost importance to you, and you will deliver the those facts whether people want to hear them or not.

You are daring in your approach, but you will tell people what they need to hear, and, yes, often times it comes across as lecturing.

4. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

When you love the spotlight as much as you do, Aries, it's only natural to want to absorb as much attention as you possibly can, and being that you're also pretty dang smart and well-prepared, you actually do make a very good lecturer.

People don't mind when you dominate the room because, well, you're good at it, and you're interesting. Lecture us, Aries. We want it bad!

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You can't be bothered with the clashing opinions of friends or family, and if your silent treatment doesn't work when they push and push you, your ability to lecture them into oblivion will.

We don't want to be lectured by you, because we know that your snappy ability to throw words together is going to kick our butts big-time, and we've heard it all from you before. When you lecture us, Sagittarius, we feel like idiots. Thanks.

6. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You don't claim to know it all, but what you do know, you want to be respected and maintained. If you find that you can't abide by someone else's false information, you will step up and take over; it morally offends you to allow lies to flourish, and when it's your turn to speak, it's a lecture.

You are naturally intolerant, but God forbid anyone should make a mistake about something you're well-informed about. You take them down in a long, roasting lecture.
