Which aspects show that someone is intelligent (book-smart)?
I am guessing you mean that they know a lot of information, and are smart in that way. A few things come to mind.
People with a lot of Gemini in their chart may be prone to having a lot of interest in learning may things and having a lot of information for the sake of having information.An example of this is people with Gemini Moon tend towards needing constant stimulation. This often comes in the form of learning new things.
Aries:dance The intensity and freedom in dance complements the whirlwind of energy that is Aries. There need not be technique for it to be beautiful, and this gives the Cardinal Fire sign the space to release their electricity through movement in a display of untamed & elusive intensity.
Taurus:landscaping Taurus long to live in a world of manifest beauty. They have an eye for aesthetic refinement and a taste for palpable delight; these things could be put to good use in the dirt, among trees, within flower buds. They could return Earth to its Eden state, one backyard garden at a time.
Gemini:painting The Gemini mind, full of noise and vividity, is perpetually fabricating mental pictures. Their heads may overflow if they don’t release some of it. The blank canvas never interrupts; it absorbs the message and beauty that is placed upon it in the form of color and brushstrokes of genius.
Cancer:photography Cancers live in memories. They cherish beautiful things gone by perhaps more than they savor the present. To be able to capture their lives and immortalize themselves & the things they adore through the art of photography would save them from trapping themselves in homes that the past has burned down.
Leo:acting Performing emotions is a concept the passionate Leo will be fascinated by. Nothing is real under the spotlight, and at the same time, it’s the only thing that is real. The stage is a sanctuary where the lion is allowed to roar as loud as they can, to set themselves on fire and be showered in applause for it.
Virgo:drawing The tip of the pen or pencil which drags crisp lines across a bright white page is a metaphor for Virgo’s pursuit of perfection. There is precision, prestige, and purity in the visual elegance of picture-making which is something that matches the Mutable Earth sign like nothing else can.
Libra:fashion Libras belong in the imaginary heavens they are capable of creating. Their perceptible, corporeal sophistication would fit in amongst angels in costume, the caricatures of loveliness, the twinkling lights and sparkling catwalk; they would have everyone in awe, and they would finally be at home.
Scorpio:cinematography Film can be one of the sickest art forms, and it is always one of the rawest. There are no lies in cinema, and yet, when fictional, it is all lies. It allows the Scorpion to uncover and lay bare the bloody truth without staining their hands, gives them the freedom to let all the secrets spill without telling anyone a thing.
Sagittarius:sculpting Sagittarius are always looking for something to make their mark on, whether it be a city or a person. They want to leave behind the signature of their experience. They can mold philosophies with their bare hands and display the wilderness of their discoveries in the marble or clay for all to admire.
Capricorn:architecture Building empires is what the Capricorn was made for. They are destined to rule over the kingdom they put together brick by brick, whether it is large or real enough to live in or not. A tangible masterpiece to call their own would by the kryptonite of their self-doubt & worldly silence.
Aquarius:music Music is inexplicable. It’s the sweetest form of sorcery, an alien language, the foreign yet familiar exchange of ideas and emotions through often wordless waves of sound. It allows the boundless Aquarius mind to explore and delve deep into their creativity, to experiment, to express their genius.
Pisces:poetry Nothing penetrates the soul like a well-crafted poem. It can gently caress you or cruelly batter you, save or kill you, fill you with love or hate, open or close your eyes; either way, it will send you into rapture, whether purely delightful or bittersweet. It gives Pisces a place to show who they really are beyond the fog.

Libra: immediately takes back whatever they said or did and makes things fair and equal for you. Doesn’t like to feel any tension in the air so they try to make things right as quickly as possible. Whatever you want they will do if it will take all the negativity out of the air.
Scorpio: has been watching your every move and payed attention to everything you have said, they will use this to manipulate their way out of apologizing

ARIES You’re the most reckless flirt in the Zodiac!
Your instinctive flirting style is full-on, fearless and direct. Love is always an exciting challenge for you, taking risks is a big turn-on, and you adore the fun of the chase.
Maybe because Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war, you approach the task of seduction rather like a military campaign. When you’re attracted to someone, you’re quick to take the initiative and immediately go on the offensive. Rebuffs bounce right off you, nothing really scares you (your pluckiness is legendary!), and if at first you fail to score, you simply launch another attack.

Flirting comes as naturally to you as breathing. With your quick-fire wit, you’re a master of the art of love banter. And at times - it has to be said - you can be a terrible tease!
Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the god of communication, your seduction technique is mainly based around the use of words. The telephone is your greatest ally, nobody text-flirts better than you - and if you wanted to, you could probably talk anyone into bed!
To you, it’s all a good laugh and if it doesn’t work out, no worries. After all, you were only joking - and it’s just a bit of a game.
CANCER You’re the coyest flirt in the Zodiac!
Yours is a passive rather than an active flirting style. In fact there’s no real need for you ever to venture out of your shell in order to lure your prey. All you have to do is flutter your eyelashes, smile shyly and give off lots of seductive vibes.
Once they’ve made the first move though, you’re quick to follow up – with a few kind words perhaps, or an offer of help.

Personally, though, you’re careful to give away as little as possible and avoid revealing your hand too soon.
By creating a sense of mystery about yourself, you aim to keep others constantly on the hook. Before they know it, they’re fatally attracted to you - but once the thrill of the chase is over, you may already have lost interest!

More than anyone, you understand that humor is the greatest aphrodisiac. No question, wit is your most powerful weapon of seduction, and a good joke your most successful pick-up line.

PISCES You’re the most beguiling flirt in the Zodiac!

Certainly nothing here is ever quite as it seems - but then that’s all part of the illusion. If you’re a bit vague or indefinite, it’s not that you deliberately intend to mislead anyone. It’s just that in order to keep the dream alive, you have to avoid getting pinned down.
No question, your most powerful weapon of seduction is your limitless empathy which encourages others to step out of themselves and share their worries and troubles. Before they know it, they’re opening up their heart to you - and you’ve convinced them they’ve found a true soul mate!
