In astrology, as in life, there’s no universal way to manage your finances. A Capricorn might suggest putting every penny in the bank, while a Sagittarius believes that money is meant to be spent! Every person has a different and equally valid approach to spending and saving their cash. Just as there are 12 signs in the zodiac, there are tons of attitudes toward financial management. Find your sign below to find out more about your money style.
Aries Zodiac Sign Money Style (Aries dates: March 20 - April 19)
Your attitude about finance reflect your individualistic and self-assured Aries demeanor. You march to the beat of your own drum, and this means that traditional methods of managing money don’t appeal to you. You have a foolproof system specifically designed for you. But sometimes, you do get swept away and dip into your life savings now and then. Your courageous and passionate personality leads to thrilling adventures with big price tags (ziplining in the Amazon forest, anyone?). And the value of these experiences far outweighs the disadvantages of being strapped for cash.
Taurus Zodiac Sign Money Style (Taurus dates: April 20 - May 20)
As an indulgent Taurus, you value money for the beautiful and sensuous objects and experiences it can buy. Whatever your job is, you have a taste for the finer things, and this can get expensive! But you’re an Earth sign who values security – you’re smart about saving. It’s unlikely you’d impulse buy something you love; instead, you’ll work hard to get enough money to justify your purchase. Slow and steady wins the race with your wallet, and this attitude guarantees well-thought out budget plans. Be wary of obsessing too much, however, as your anxiety about financial stability can get in the way of spontaneity!
Gemini Zodiac Sign Money Style (Gemini dates: May 21 - June 20)
Your money management style is as flippant as your personality, restless Gemini! You’re eager to learn and absorb everything you can, to the point that you lose your focus in conversation or thought. The same applies with what you choose to spend your money on; you can get carried away and forget about the bigger picture. Your versatile personality doesn’t exactly encourage a consistent financial plan, so you need to find a balance between indulging your mutability but keeping your cash secure. Buying a round of drinks for all your colleagues is a little much, don’t you think?
Cancer Zodiac Sign Money Style (Cancer dates: June 21 - July 21)
As a domestic and conscientious Cancer, your money style reflects your desire to create beautiful and safe spaces. It’s likely you’re a big fan of home-improvement television shows and have a credit card with a store that sells furniture. You love to invest in your living space, whether it’s a modest apartment or an enormous house. Every square inch has the potential to be transformed by your charming touch. Since you value stability and security, however, it’s unlikely that you put yourself in risky financial situations. Just watch out for your impulse to buy things when you’re feeling low – you definitely don’t need more throw pillows!
Leo Money Style (Leo dates: July 22 - August 22)
Extravagant! Incredible! These words race through your mind every time you think about purchasing something. Your Leo love of the limelight can sway your wallet to favor objects and experiences that heighten your flare for the dramatic. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s simply you! But be wary of taking it too far; knowing your limits will help you avoid the financial ruin that can keep your from thriving. You’re a Fixed sign after all, and not too keen on massive changes, so rein in the impulse shopping. Only spend your hard-earned cash on what inspires your passion for life.
Virgo Money Style (Virgo dates: August 23 - September 22)
You’re particular about everything you do, studious Virgo, including managing your finances. You’re aware of every bill you have to pay down to the cent, and have autopay set up for all your obligations. Nothing passes your keen eye, and you’re focused on saving. While your Earth sign sensibilities keep you grounded, you have a soft spot for helping others, especially with work and money. It’s likely you buy your friends meals when they can’t afford them, or donate your extra cash to charities that you believe in. Your financial routine is restrictive, but your heart is generous.
Libra Money Style (Libra dates: September 23 - October 22)
As a lovely and charming Libra, you’re Venusian sensibilities make your money style very extravagant. You appreciate the finer things, and have no problem spending your whole paycheck on art or experiences that allow you to bask in beauty. This is all fine and good every once in a while, but an opera every week? Your biggest challenge is managing your spendthrift tendencies; you get swept up in the fantasy, and often get carried away. A simple plan of financial management will keep you more organized; but make sure to allow for some spontaneity or else you’ll feel boxed in.
Scorpio Money Style (Scorpio dates: October 23 - November 21)
Your mind and heart is as extreme as your money style, alluring Scorpio. You’re extra sensitive to the highs and lows of your life, and often find a fluctuating pattern in your spending and saving. On one hand, you value feeling financially secure – maybe even a little too much. This can lead to some restrictive behavior, where you choose to stay at home rather than go out with your friends to avoid spending money. On the other hand, your impulsive decisions can do some serious damage to your bank account. Try to find the middle ground between stashing your cash and going on a spending spree.
Sagittarius Money Style (Sagittarius dates: November 22 - December 20)
For, you, as a farseeing and idealistic Sagittarius, life is a grand adventure! Your direct and outspoken attitude about life translates to your financial values as well. Money is meant to be spent and enjoyed. Whether it’s buying a delicious meal at a new trendy restaurant or booking a hotel at your next destination, you’re in it for the experience. This perspective leads you to many exciting places, but it can also cause you to be a little reckless. You tend to act when the mood strikes, and this can lead to some risky financial decisions. Maintain your perspective and keep your eye on the bigger picture.
Capricorn Money Style (Capricorn dates: December 21 - January 19)
As a disciplined Capricorn, you have a reputation for being very conservative with your money. It’s not that you don’t spend it at all. You just have big, ambitious plans for the future. You value financial security because it helps you feel in control of your very hectic and chaotic life. But remember to live a little, as hoarding your cash won’t save you from the random acts of life and money. You’ll never go overboard, so leave some room for treating yourself to an extravagant meal or fabulous new party attire. You’ve earned it!
Aquarius Money Style (Aquarius dates: January 20 - February 17)
Your rebellious Aquarius nature makes your approach to money a bit unconventional. But that’s just how you like it! You tend to scoff in the face of sound advice about responsible saving and spending patterns. This doesn’t mean you’re reckless! You just don’t like anyone telling you what to do. When you do save up, Aquarius, you have a clear vision of what you want. And it’s usually something related to technology, like computers, robotic vacuum cleaners, or the latest smart gadget. Your interest in innovation can be expensive, so avoid thinking a new toy will cure your boredom.
Pisces Money Style (Pisces dates: February 18 - March 19)
Your ethereal Pisces demeanor means your money style isn’t clear-cut. As someone who values fluidity over structure, your budgets tend to be loose and open-ended. You spend money with your heart, and this can lead to some financial trouble if you’re not careful. Avoid impulsivity when it comes to donating to your favorite charities or buying books and art. Think before you swipe your debit card; otherwise, you’ll end up with an overdraft fee and too many albums, even though you don’t have a turntable to play them on. It’s okay to fantasize, just leave your wallet out of it.
