When entering a personal partnership or a professional one, financial matters are sure to be an issue. After all, whether you’re getting married or launching a business with someone — or both — the same questions arise: What are your partner’s views on money, including earning, saving, spending, borrowing and investing it? How do their views match up with your own? How might a business or financial relationship work if you have different Sun Signs, or the same sign? Perhaps you’re concerned about the way your partner handles money matters because it’s so different from your own approach — or maybe you’re actually too similar.
Whatever questions you have, look no further: Your Financial Compatibility will show you just how financially suited you are with your business or life partner. As long as you know your partner’s Sun Sign, you can find out just how it matches up with your own, and get the information you need about approaching money matters as a team.
Gaining a clear picture of how your partner’s financial attitudes mesh with yours can make all the difference. It’s said that money is one of the top subjects married couples fight about, and the same could likely be said of business partners, as well. But there’s no need to tear your hair out, or to watch your marriage or business disintegrate in the face of mounting debt. Your Financial Compatibility will show you whether you can expect smooth sailing ahead, or if you might need to negotiate terms that both you and your partner can live with.
Aries and Aries Money Compatibility
With two headstrong Aries sharing financial responsibilities, things could get competitive fast. Impulse buys may be your downfall, because neither one of you is particularly interested in considering long-term plans or sticking to a strict budget (yawn!). You want what you want when you want it, which isn't the soundest financial-planning strategy. However, you're both willing to take risks, which can sometimes pay off big. You may do better with higher-risk yet shorter-term investments than with longer-term, more slow-growing ones. Your spontaneity will help you pick up and start over after a loss, and your mutually enterprising natures can easily help you to get ahead as a team.
Aries and Taurus Money Compatibility
A spirited, aggressive Aries and a headstrong, stubborn Taurus partner trying to share financial responsibilities could mean frequent arguments, because your approaches to spending, saving and investing are just so different. You're all about spontaneous purchases. Hey, you want what you want, and with credit card in hand, you know how to get it! You favor risky investments that just might pay off big. Your Taurus counterpart also loves indulging their material desires, but they're much more likely to take a careful, responsible approach to both accounting and financial planning. As much as you may want to rebel against their conservative methods, you may be better off letting them manage this part of your relationship. Cooperate with your partner's strategies for growing your mutual assets.
Aries and Gemini Money Compatibility
You and your Gemini partner share a fun, spirited connection -- but who's going to pay the bills on time and make sure you're getting the best returns on your investments? Neither of you is particularly interested in financial planning. You're both impulse buyers: When you know what you want, why should you let lack of funds stop you from getting it? But if you share attitudes like these, your financial profile might need a little help. Good thing your Gemini counterpart is into researching different investment options, and neither one of you is shy about making risky money moves, which can sometimes really pay off. You may have to take charge of managing your assets, however; without your motivating presence, Gemini is apt to lose interest altogether.
Aries and Cancer Money Compatibility
As a fiery, spunky Aries, you see financial planning as a major bore -- except, of course, when it comes to high-risk investing or speculative real estate ventures. This is where you and your Cancer partner differ; they're all about asset security and planning for the future, and risky ventures make their skin crawl. At best, you two can be good influences on each other. Cancer can teach you about saving for a rainy day (or retirement), and you can teach them about the benefits of taking the occasional risk that pays off big. But this kind of balance will require gentle communication and compromise, which probably aren't your strong points as a duo. Be sensitive to Cancer's security needs -- and try not to compete with each other over who's in charge of the finances!
Aries and Leo Money Compatibility
As two Fire signs, you and your Leo partner have energy and creativity in common. But who's in charge of your shared assets? Financial planning just doesn't interest you, and Leo's expensive tastes can run up credit card debt fast. Someone's going to have to take charge before things turn into one big mess. The problem is that your competitive natures could easily get in the way of compromise. Leo passionately wants to be the leader here, but you'll fight for the position of authority. Instead of engaging in a power struggle, find ways to work together. Focus on your common goals, such as supporting your family or business venture. And don't be afraid of creative investments. This could be your biggest strength as a team.
Aries and Virgo Money Compatibility
Your impulsive spending and occasionally careless investment strategies might wear on your more organized, sensible and moderate Virgo partner. They probably keep a meticulous daily budget, whereas your Aries accounting style is more like tossing your receipts into a shoebox, or even the backseat of your car. Ostensibly, you're the one in charge in this pairing, but your more reserved Virgo counterpart has a strong will of their own, and managing the family finances in their hardworking, detail-oriented way might be one way they show their dedication to your relationship. Be sure to thank them for this service, and try not to exacerbate their anxious tendencies. Rather than rebelling against their attempts to control your spending, look at it as a welcome grounding influence, and push yourself to cooperate.
Aries and Libra Money Compatibility
As opposite signs, you and your Libra partner possess complementary strengths in managing your shared assets. You're bold enough to pursue cutting-edge investment strategies, and with Libra's natural negotiation skills, they can help secure better terms and interest rates on loans and other ventures. But learning to cooperate, communicate and compromise is key. As a spirited Aries, you'll naturally take charge of financial planning -- except, you aren't that interested in planning anything. You like risky ventures, impulse purchases and living in the moment. Your gentle Libra counterpart isn't likely to make waves by challenging your spending or investment decisions. Plus, they enjoy living a comfortable, even lavish lifestyle, which takes cash -- or, more likely, credit. By hiring a financial advisor to help you manage your funds, you'll be able to avoid major debt and other problems.
Aries and Scorpio Money Compatibility
As an honest, bold Aries, you're more upfront about your financial goals than your Scorpio partner. You know what you want, and armed with a credit card, you know exactly how to get it. But though you like being the one in charge in almost any situation, you might want to turn the management of your shared assets over to Scorpio, whose shrewd, focused approach to finances can be quite effective in growing your funds. Plus, Scorpio is good at letting you think you're the one in charge -- even as they're strategizing behind the scenes. You have plenty to teach them, of course. For example, Scorpio can take cues from your bold, aggressive approach to investing and turn it into cold, hard cash.
Aries and Sagittarius Money Compatibility
Cautious, conscientious financial planning isn't really within your realm of interests, and it's about the last thing on your Sagittarius partner's mind. Neither one of you two spirited, adventurous Fire signs cares overmuch for tedious tasks like balancing your checkbook or making sure the bills are paid on time. You'd both rather be out of the house or office, engaged in high adventures, than tied to a desk with calculator in hand. Since you're a natural leader, Aries, it's up to you to take charge of your mutual assets. But if neither of you is willing to crunch numbers on a regular basis, you might be better off hiring an accountant or financial advisor who can do the dirty work for you. Be sure to capitalize on your shared love of excitement. Sometimes, the riskiest ventures pay off the most handsomely.
Aries and Capricorn Money Compatibility
As a fiery Aries, you're passionate and sometimes even reckless. Financially, that could mean impulse buys galore, not to mention an investment strategy that owes more to momentary whims than to careful planning. Still, you're quick on your feet, which enables you to come back strong from any mistakes you might make. But sharing financial responsibilities with your conservative, organized Capricorn counterpart could prove tricky. You both like being in charge, but your shared assets and investments are one area you might be better off handing over to them. On the other hand, if you can learn to compromise and work together instead of just butting heads, you'll be a positive influence on Capricorn, helping them learn to take the occasional risk that pays off big.
Aries and Aquarius Money Compatibility
The two of you are all about unusual financial ventures and bold investment strategies. Since you, Aries, aren't much for day-to-day accounting or sticking to a budget, these responsibilities may be up to your Aquarius partner, who has more determination than you when it comes to seeing a plan through to its completion. But you possess the boldness and energy to tackle exciting new ventures, such as a start-up business or a high-risk, high-returns investment scheme. Be sure to consider your Aquarius partner's financial ideas carefully. Thinking outside the box is their specialty, and they might come up with some surprisingly progressive ways of using and protecting your mutual assets.
Aries and Pisces Money Compatibility
With a dreamy Pisces partner by your side, it's easy for you to take charge of your shared financial affairs. Pisces just isn't that tuned in to mundane responsibilities like paying the bills on time or keeping up with the latest investment strategies. The problem is, neither are you. Long-term ventures, savings or retirement accounts, and other plans that involve slow, steady increases in funds simply go against your nature. As a fiery, spontaneous Aries, you're much more into high-risk ventures that pay off big and fast. So which one of you will keep your finances in order? It's probably up to you, as the natural leader in this duo. Good thing you're able to motivate your Pisces counterpart to action.
