You and Your Money--By Zodiac Sign
Pisces is an impulse shopper. Libra is so cheap he will be the last one to pick up the check. Money is so important to Taurus that it is the foundation for all his ideas.
Sound familiar or totally off-kilter?
Bankrate.com asked for the assistance of New York-based professional astrologer Ralfee Finn, who writes the online Aquarium Age forecasts, and Anne Ortelee, who writes her own online weekly "weather chart," to evaluate each Zodiac sign to see what it says about our money habits. Finn and Ortelee say that when it comes to money and astrology, we are more influenced by our "second house" or "rising sun." For example, an Aquarian born in February has more of the money traits of Pisces, which is the March Zodiac sign.
You and your money--by Zodiac sign, according to Bankrate.com:
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Brave, independent and assertive, Aries is grounded and practical when it comes to money, but they tend not to think about it a lot. They either have it or they don't. What they enjoy most about money is its ability to make things happen and are often the first ones to buy something new.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Sensual and pleasure-seeking, Taurus enjoys buying beautiful and expensive things, but they tend to purchase items of high value that will last a long time. Money is important...very important. Money is so important that it is the foundation for their ideas.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The multitalented, dynamic and mischievous Gemini is generous when it comes to treating others, but also very solidly grounded when it comes to spending money. They think a lot about money and do their homework before investing.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Practical Cancer, who has lots of friends and hates to argue, spends money primarily to take care of people. But they worry about money--a lot. No matter how much they have, they rarely feel secure and always wonder if it's enough. They are prudent investors, who think long term and always have savings.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Creative, popular and proud, Leos so enjoy the finer things in life that they have developed a reputation for being extravagant. There is just one caveat: Leo is generous when Leo is happy. But when Leo is unhappy, he is fearful about sharing. Leos like to make an entrance, going to big, fancy places and leaving big, fancy tips even when a less-expensive alternative would be just as good.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Successful, creative and eager to please, Virgos tend to worry about money and then deny themselves things they should buy. They work hard, save much and spend little. Unlike the other signs, Virgos worry about the consequences of spending money.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Adventurous, lavish and irresistible, Librans are always weighing their options with the result that they do not spend money freely. They are more concerned about how their spending habits affect them--but not others. Translation: They are the last ones to pick up the check.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Self-reliant, wise and secretive, Scorpions want to dominate and rule other people's money. They are the natural sign of accountants. Still, while they are deliberate about their own money, they do spend it.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Open-minded and high-achieving, Sagittarians are quite precise and even cautious when it comes to money. While they are not considered cheap and are willing to lend money to friends when needed, they do have a fear of money.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Hardworking, loyal and stubborn Capricorns are savers and not spenders, but they can be penny-wise and pound-foolish. That is, they are so concerned about saving for the future they tend to not spend money in the present on preventive or maintenance issues. Having money in the bank is wonderful, but it's OK to spend some occasionally.
Aquarius (January 20-Februrary 18)
Innovative, trendsetting and eccentric Aquarians need money because they enjoying doing things--lots of things--but in the end they can be really cheap. They tend to be less interested in managing their money, but they appreciate money's value because money is the way to get things done.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Sensitive, sensual and free-spirited, Pisces is a dreamer who cares little about money. Instead of thinking about dollars and cents in practical terms, their approach to money is more impulsive. If they put their mind to it, they are able to make a lot of money and when they are disciplined, they can make intuitive investments. But watch out for impulse shopping!
