    I Asked Astrologers How Each Zodiac Sign Thinks About Money

    Know yourself. Save yourself some $.

    People have been attaching meaning to the stars for several millennia so it's not surprising that over 50% of Americans believe their horoscope has had a major impact on their lives.

    A survey by N26 that captured data from over 1,000 adults found that, in addition to relying on their horoscope for relationship advice, 31% believe astrology can help them make wiser financial decisions.


    The connection between astrology and money may have never crossed your mind but the AstroTwins are out to change that. Here's their take on each sign's strengths and weaknesses when it comes to money (and how to get more of it).

    You're welcome, star children.

    1. Aquarius

    Aquarians tend to be free-spirited individuals who aren't afraid to do things (including money things) their own unique way.

    According to the AstroTwins, "Aquarians are great at looking to the future to plan and invest in cutting-edge industries. But with their thriving social lives, they may burn through cash quickly going out with friends." 

    2. Pisces

    Pisces are known to be imaginative and empathic, but with a sign that is symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions, one part of Pisces is always trying to “swim away” or escape reality. 

    Not the best thing when it comes to money.

    The AstroTwins say, "Enchanting Pisces are creative financiers: When they don’t have cash, they’ll barter. And because of their helpful nature, they are often paid in gifts. They can struggle with boundaries and may go broke helping out people they love."

    3. Aries

    Aries are pioneers with enough energy and drive to ignite change (and get things done). Fear and uncertainty don't play much of a role.

    When it comes to money, the AstroTwins say, "Take-charge Aries are great leaders who are fearless about asking for the pay they deserve. But with their need for instant gratification, they are impulsive spenders who can burn through cash."

    4. Taurus

    Tauruses are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and love (ahem), making people with this sign just as sensual as they are sensible.

    Those traits transfer over to the money world, with the AstroTwins noting that "sensual but sensible Tauruses are smart budgeteers and know how to live well without breaking the bank. But their frugality can cause them to play it too safe and miss out on bigger moneymaking opportunities."

    5. Gemini

    Two-sided Geminis are chatty and clever (two traits that are often helpful when it comes to money) and tend to live their lives at full speed.

    "Savvy Geminis are shrewd investors and can sell anything. But they may short-circuit financial progress by impulsively shopping, changing jobs too frequently, or getting sidetracked by office drama," say the AstroTwins.

    6. Cancer

    The wonderful, caring Cancers tends to feel everything deeply, experiencing a range of moods and emotions. Their caring tendency can translate into taking careful financial care of themselves and those they love. (Hello, savings!)

    The AstroTwins note that "caretaking Cancers love having a beautiful home and are great at building a nest egg for their families. But their need for security can lead to fear-based frugality that keeps them stuck in 'Poor Dad' mode."


    7. Leo

    Glamorous Leos — who are known for being regal, lionlike leaders — often have a dedicated crew of followers, which can bode well for Leos financially. 

    "Generous Leos are big on celebrations and love treating friends and buying gifts. But their grandiose ideas can get so expensive that they get stuck in a feast or famine cycle," say the AstroTwins.

    8. Virgo

    Virgos tend to be detail-oriented planners who are masters of communication. (And there's nothing wrong with that!)

    When it comes to money, the AstroTwins say, "Sensible Virgos have an ethos of 'simple elegance' and like to have a five-year plan to work toward. But they can get so worried about the future that they never enjoy the money they have."


    9. Libra

    Libras are well loved and charming — two things that do wonders for their ability to make money. And thanks to the sign's symbol (the scale), Libras may take a more balanced approach when it comes to their finances.

    The AstroTwins say that "charming Libras are masterful networkers and moneymaking opportunities are a phone call away. But their love of fashion, jewelry, and five-star entertainment can blow their budgets, leaving them at square one."

    10. Scorpio

    The adjectives "intense" and "mysterious" tend to follow Scorpios, who are loyal, powerful, and in full control. 

    "Strategic Scorpios are natural curators who prepare wisely for the future, saving up to feel secure. But their trust issues can hold them back from making wise investments that would help their money grow," explain the AstroTwins.

    11. Sagittarius

    The wild, free-spirited Sagittarians tend to be overflowing with confidence and energy. 

    With a larger-than-life persona, the AstroTwins say the "lucky, entrepreneurial Sagittarians are great at attracting money. But with their boundless enthusiasm for everything they do, they can take unwise gambles that leave them financially vulnerable."

    12. Capricorn

    Capricorns are wise and responsible. They tend to follow the rules and respect tradition. But that doesn't mean they won't splurge on items they believe will up their status.

    "Dutiful Capricorns make great providers, saving up for themselves and their families. But they can overspend on status items and get stuck with too many bills," say the AstroTwins.
