What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Financial Savvy5 min read
You might be thinking how people have different views on money matters. Some are tagged as cheapskates but are actually just boring; some may seem like the life of the party but are broke IRL. Some are born with an entrepreneurial knack and earn profit without even trying, while some constantly struggle to earn cash.
This might be because our spending habits are already foretold. If our zodiac signs indicate our financial savvy, then could there really be a “fault in our stars”? Here’s what your horoscope says.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Aries are confident and risk-takers by nature—traits that can either make or break your financial decisions. Being impulsive often leads an Aries to shedding some cash without thinking, ending up feeling frustrated when important expenses arrive.
On another note, you are also enthusiastic when attaining your goals, which can power up the will to curb your financial status.
The key is to avoid distractions, so better uninstall that online shopping app from your phone! Better yet, brave the opportunity to take risks on well-thought-off investments.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
Taureans are walking ironies. As creatures of habit, they can be steadfast, making them good at handling money; and borderline stubborn, making them lazy and a master of procrastination at times.
They can be persistent as they value stability so much, which leads to a successful career path. While they have a reputation of being down to earth, Taureans also have a weakness to indulge themselves with luxury and give in to their materialistic side.
Our advice? Don’t let that side take over and focus on planning to save instead.
Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
The energy-packed Gemini is a fluid person. Intelligent and adaptable, people under the Twin sign are often found mingling somewhere, making them the ultimate social butterflies. This makes them spend more cash on night-outs. However, building network can be used as an advantage to your career or business.
Routine and boredom are the major no-nos to your lifestyle, so put your clever ideas to work and translate them into income generating means. Control your impulses when setting your financial goal, though, to avoid spending the money you’re saving.
Cancer (June 22 to July 22)
Cancers are the homebodies of the zodiac as they are nature-born nurturers. They always aim to provide a sense of security and comfort to their loved ones, driving them to be frugal and efficient home-makers.
However, you should not forget to indulge a little sometimes. Keep your sanity by traveling with your family or arranging a small gathering with your friends.
Leo (July 23 to August 21)
Just like the lion, Leos literally live like kings in their own personal jungles. They only settle for the best, which can lead them to spend excessively.
As all eyes are on you, you try to maintain your reputation by living the high life. Typically the most galante in the bunch, you are warm and kind-hearted, even to the point of compromising your finances.
On another note, you are naturally charismatic and emanate leadership, which makes you a good fit to be an entrepreneur.
Virgo (August 22 to September 23)
The perfectionist among all the signs, the Virgo is extremely picky when making purchases. It can either help them to not buy anything, or they’ll end up buying the priciest item. Practical and borderline stingy, you find that your lifestyle can be flat and boring sometimes.
People under the Virgo sign are hardworking, and are mainly interested to make investments in real estate or business. So keep it up with the savings!
Libra (September 24 to October 23)
Libras are the masters of attaining balance. They know how to tip the scale on savings and spending. Before swiping your credit card, you’ve already sought your options and plotted your calculations on an Excel file. However, your urge to make sound decisions leads to overthinking and drags you down to make a final move.
“Should I invest my money on stocks or mutual funds or should I buy a food franchise?” and the time wasted could have already been generating income. Talk to someone you can trust when indecisiveness takes over.
Scorpio (October 24 to November 22)
Scorpios have a penetrative awareness and are naturally curious. That is why they are good at problem solving and analyzing their finances—most especially when testing the waters of investing.
Their competitive nature takes them up to their career ladder. As control freaks, they are not a fan of taking risks, which also makes it easier for them to veer from impulse buying. Just remember that building a secure future doesn’t imply depriving yourself from life’s simple joys.
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 22)
This the sign blessed with lots of luck, for the most part because Sagittarians are optimistic and maintain a positive disposition that magnets good fortune. Sometimes, this can lead them to be lax, reckless, and irresponsible in their spending because they hold on to the saying “may bukas pa” when all else fails.
Their optimism, however, makes them invincible to struggle through hardship and change, at work for instance. While they are “one-day millionaires,” they are determined to reach their targets.
Capricorn (December 23 to January 20)
Capricorns are on the next-level of ambitious as they always have a drawing board they strictly adhere to. Being empirical, methodical, and patient, they execute slowly but surely. This is the reason Capricorns have a surefire success in the corporate ladder.
Capricorns are also in control of their finances and have an unwavering discipline in budgeting. However, you should loosen up sometimes as a stingy lifestyle can be bad for you too.
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19)
The Aquarius is one of the most creative and brilliant minds of the Zodiac. Their imagination often leads them to achieve success at work. Aquarians apply their creativity on savings and investing money.
Aside from being blessed with a big mind, you are also full of devotion and strive to extend a hand for others. Thus, you’re more likely helping charities with a generous portion of your finances.
Pisces (February 20 to March 20)
While being commonly dubbed as pushovers and lazy, people born in the 12th sign of the zodiac are actually creative, dedicated, and hardworking as an employee, especially when their jobs are intellectually challenging.
Pisceans are not wholly bothered with money matters as they just go with the flow, just like the fish. If you’re a Piscean, you should not be afraid to take interest in your finances.
If you’re occupied in chasing the mysteries of the world, take some time to reflect and talk to a financial advisor to guide your future.
