The arrival of a New Year prompts many people to reconsider financial issues. Every zodiac sign connotes strengths and weaknesses impacting this subject. Individuals differ in important respects due to their unique natal horoscopes and circumstances, of course.
In Western Astrology, the Sun has always carried a close symbolic association with wealth. It represents both personality and gold. What big financial mistakes should you remain alert for this year based upon your zodiac Sun sign?Read More »
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries the Ram displays energy in all things! This strong-willed sign confers vitality and, sometimes, impatience. Aries may grow restless following a carefully considered financial plan. Reigning in this tendency could promote long term wealth.
Horoscope: During December and January, people with an Aries Sun sign will discover their Sun in a favorable sextile formation with Jupiter and Saturn. It bodes well for benefiting from government initiatives and spending constraints.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus the Bull excels in steady, persistent tasks (like saving money). Sometimes the sheer dependability of Taurus proves a financial mistake, e.g. when an investor stubbornly holds onto a declining stock.
Horoscope: During January, some Taureans will experience a momentous period financially, as both Uranus and Mars continue their transit through this Zodiac sign. Both unexpected financial events (including technology innovations) and a welcome infusion of energy may occur.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Gemini the Twins enlivens any room with quick wit and interesting conversation! These positives may create financial challenges if a tendency to gossip gets out of hand. Taking steps to prevent the disclosure of private financial information often benefits Gemini.
Horoscope: Worry about finances may create conflicts for some Geminis during January, as transiting Neptune forms a square with their natal Sun. However, those born during late May may well discover good fortune in financial matters and real estate investments this month. Look for an infusion of energy and determination beginning on March 5th, when Mars finally enters the sign of Gemini.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Cancer the Crab frequently manifests imagination and consideration for others in financial matters. The intense emotional nature of this zodiac sign may pose a detriment if a preoccupation with finances becomes too absorbing, however. Cancer benefits by not dwelling on temporary setbacks.
Horoscope: January may feel sluggish from a financial point of view for some born in the sign of Cancer. However, brighter days await. Mars enters Cancer on April 24th, bringing along a welcome infusion of physical activity and energy. Both the Sun and Venus, the planet of balance and beauty, arrive in Cancer during June, creating prospects for a happy year (and possibly, romance).
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo the Lion displays natural leadership qualities. The sign sometimes makes financial mistakes connected to ostentatious, unnecessary spending. Curbing this tendency may yield important benefits later.
Horoscope: The trend of unexpected surprises occurring in financial matters continues to create bumpy conditions during January. It may prove helpful to boost savings to help offset any sudden stock market changes, power outages, or other unforeseen challenges.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgo the Maiden maintains a practical, detail-oriented approach to household finances. Sometimes this tendency to watch pennies blinds Virgo to the importance of taking calculated risks. Virgo sometimes misses excellent opportunities, as a result.
Horoscope: Anxiety about money poses a conflict for many born in Virgo this year. Yet as Uranus transits through Taurus, Virgo will experience some unexpected positive financial developments. Stocks, technology, aviation, and windfalls might offer opportunities to recover from recent setbacks.
Libra (September 23-October 23)
Libra the Scales reflects the inherent beauty of creativity. This charismatic, popular sign frequently excels in artistic endeavors. Libra’s talent often succeeds seamlessly. This tendency may result in a reluctance to infuse effort into financial matters. Adhering to a disciplined financial and investment plan usually benefits Libra.
Horoscope: This month, some Librans will enjoy a favorable trine between the natal Sun with Jupiter and Saturn (both transiting Aquarius). This configuration bodes well for good luck and long term fiscal discipline. The period appears bright for Librans, even if a few short term setbacks occur.
Scorpio (October 24-November 22)
Scorpio the Scorpion harbors deep-seated intensity and (sometimes) turbulent emotions beneath a deceptively calm exterior. Harnessing this impressive energy to accomplish constructive financial goals empowers this Zodiac sign.
Horoscope: The New Year finds many Scorpios eager to improve their financial circumstances. Red tape may create challenges during January. Unexpected money or personality conflicts arise this month. Patience proves helpful during this period. Better conditions commence on March 5th, as Mars enters the sign of Gemini.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
Sagittarius the Archer projects the power of striving to achieve high goals. This energetic sign sometimes overreaches, creating overly optimistic or grandiose plans. Consulting with an experienced financial advisor may help Sagittarius accomplish an ambitious agenda.
Horoscope: Many in this sign discover appealing wealth-building opportunities during January, with Jupiter and Saturn sextile to the natal Sun. However, an unfavorable square to Neptune fosters confusion and worry in some cases. Despite uncertainty, opportunities abound for a lucrative Spring!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Known as practical, self-disciplined, and determined, Capricorn the Goat excels in adhering to regular savings goals. Rigorous budgeting by Capricorn may create tension. Capricorn sometimes benefits by easing up a bit in financial matters and indulging in a few purely luxurious purchases.
Horoscope: The Sun remains in Capricorn until January 19th. Its recent conjuction with Pluto heralds a year of significant renewal and regeneration for Capricorn over the long term. Venus, a planet associated with affluence, beauty, and artistic creativity, also transits Capricorn at this time. Financial decisions made this month could yield significant results down the road.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius the Water Carrier maintains an innovative, energetic, and idealistic approach towards money and finance. A willingness to promote change may incline Aquarius towards hasty decisions. Developing carefully considered, long term investments helps this sign achieve financial goals.
Horoscope: Intense activity occurs in Aquarius during the Spring. Mercury, the fast-paced planet of commerce, transits this sign during January. Additionally, the slower moving planets of Jupiter and Saturn continue a gradual progression through Aquarius. A fortunate real estate transaction might occur this month for some people born in this sign.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
The sign of Pisces the Fish projects spiritual and sentimental qualities. One financial mistake sometimes connected with Pisces involves a tendency to spend money generously, but impulsively. Pisces may dream about acquiring great wealth without implementing concrete plans towards this goal.
Horoscope: Slow-moving Neptune continues transiting Pisces this year. People born in this Zodiac sign may experience both confusion and sudden remarkable insights concerning the economy at this time. Expect opportunities to arise in business when Mercury enters Pisces on March 16th.
