Everyone spends and manages their money differently. Some individuals save every extra dollar that hits their hand, while others overindulge in the guilty pleasures of fine dining and designer handbags. The tale of your financial habits may lie in the behaviors inherited from your parents or they stem from personal experiences. But, what if all your money and spending habits could be explained by looking to the stars? Well, with some help from Chime, we are here to show you how your zodiac sign could be influencing your money habits.

Aries Zodiac Sign
Aries (March 21 - April 19) – The Aries sign is known for having a natural hunter/gatherer mentality, and it's not different when it comes to money and saving.  Aries are the thrifty sign. You seek out a great deal on sales and are a fabulous bargain shopper. Be sure not to fall into shaky waters by trying to score a great deal, as this could lead to overspending. It’s wise to impose a 24-hour grace period on any large purchases.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) – In layman’s terms, Tauruses can be described as self-indulgent. Tauruses lean towards luxury and like to spend money on high-quality items that hold their value. A Taurus does know how to prioritize saving while also treating themselves. The downside of having your sign be a bull is how stubborn you can be. Tauruses often find it hard to make changes, so making financial changes can lead to some push back.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) – Gemini’s get a tingly feeling from spending money on new experiences and the unknown, rather than buying “stuff.” Your intellectual side peaks when it comes time to make a purchase, because you have thoroughly done your research on pricing and product features before buying. Be aware of your spending habits when you’re bored and focus on saving for your next big adventure.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) – Cancer is the homebody sign. You prefer the comfort of your own home and like to spend money on comfy pillows and sheets, rather than new clothes or fine dining with friends. Essentially, you only buy the essentials. Cancers are known for saving on a regular basis. It could benefit you to set boundaries with your friends when it comes to lending them money. 

Leo Zodiac Sign Blog Image
Leo  (July 23 - August 22) – Lions are known for their big hearts, and Leo’s are no different. The big-hearted and kind zodiac sign is truly generous, especially when it comes to their friends. A major drawback is a fact that Leo’s spend to impress. It can be extremely easy for Leo’s to end up in major debt. A saving grace for Leo’s is their ability to be skilled analytics who look at the whole picture. So, take a step back and review your purchases beforehand.

Virgo Zodiac Sign Blog Image
Virgo (August 23 - September 22) – Virgos are the financially confident sign. They tend to be practical and analytical when it comes to their finances and spending. A Virgo sees no value in spending money on needless or unnecessary items. But this also means they tighten the reins and are hesitant to spend money on themselves. If you don’t see the need to spend money on yourself, it could be wise to save or invest your money instead.

Libra (September 23 - October 22) – To a Libra, pleasing the people around you is important. If you’re a Libra you may have a hard time saying “no” to people and purchases. Libras have a desire to people please, themselves included. They fall in the habit of buying items they don’t really need. Despite the urge to spend unwisely, Libras refrain from buying things on credit. On a positive note, Libras are highly creative at using their talent to repurpose items they already own instead of buying new ones.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) – Scorpios are known for their passion and hyper-focus. So when it comes to their personal finances, we can expect the same thing. Scorpios are dedicated savers which means they’re one step ahead of other signs when it comes to having a strong emergency fund. Simple advice would be to review current budgets to see if there is possible room for improvement.   

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign Blog Image
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) – Living life as a Sagittarius most likely means you’re confident, brave and ready to take on the world. Sags are known for their optimistic outlook on life. When it comes to spending, you'd much rather spend on experiences over “things.”  Continue to seek a return on your investment with purchases, as it will benefit you in the long-term to continue asking questions before making a purchase.

Capricorn Zodiac Sign Blog Image

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) – Capricorn’s set the bar high when it comes to being financially responsible. The wisdom and patience a Capricorn possess eventually pays off. They tend to value quality over quantity when making a purchase. A drawback for a Capricorn is the small purchases you could forget to make, like getting an oil change. 

Aquarius Zodiac Sign Blog Image
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18) – There’s no better feeling to an Aquarius than being financially independent.  Spending on group activities doesn’t bother you and your financial goals are always in mind. It’s important you aren’t being taken advantage of when it comes to splitting the tab. A good rule of thumb is using a payment app for group outings. This way, you can keep track and make sure things are comparable. 

Pisces Zodiac Sign Blog Image

Pisces  (February 19 - March 20) – Pisces are one of the hardest signs to interpret and motivated by one thing – their emotions. This makes you a salesperson’s dream because of your impulsive buying. You aren’t known for spending irrationally, but when a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presents itself, you aren’t going to let it slip through your fingers. Pisces should refocus that impulsiveness into investing and building wealth for the long-term or paying off debt. 

What did your zodiac sign say about you? Understanding your sign can reveal surprising insights about what drives your financial decisions. While we hope you found this blog to be an interesting and fun read, ALWAYS seek out professional advice when it comes to your financial decisions. Don't rely solely on the stars!
