Money is a sensitive topic, so whether you’re of the frugal variety or a generous spender, it can be hard to develop a strategy that lets you spend what you earn while saving as appropriate. Yes, there are money managers and financial consultants, but many people don’t feel that their financial questions rise to that level of concern.
For those with a general grasp of their financial well-being but who want some new insights, consider trying something different. By paying attention to your astrological sign, you can get a feel for your natural approach to money management and find guidance in setting your financial priorities.
The Frugal Crew
Some astrological signs are more frugal than others, particularly Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, and Scorpio, but sometimes they can go too far. In fact, when it comes to money, these signs can be outright controlling and may view spending as an ostentatious act.
If you fall under a naturally frugal star sign, don’t let your conservative spending habits keep you from exciting opportunities or the occasional bit of fun. You’ve spent your life saving, so when an exciting chance comes your way, such as a trip you want to take or that perfect item of clothing you just have to have, open up to indulgence. And if you’re not sure, check your daily horoscope today; a little spending might open up new doors in your life if you can accept that there are appropriate ways to spend.
The Smart Spenders
Following on the frugal signs, there are those who take a more measured approach to their money. Geminis, Cancers, Aries, and Aquarius all know that when it comes to money, it’s okay to spend as long as you’re smart about it. Those who fall under the Aries moon, for example, work hard and earn their rewards, but they also love the thrill of getting a good deal. Meanwhile, Geminis may be out to swallow the world, but they know that they have to save to experience the best things. Both the frugal signs and the more excessive spenders could take their cues from this bunch.
Finally, we come to the star signs that are digging themselves into debt. You know who you are: Libras, Pisces, Sagittarius, and Leos. While these signs may be able to restrain themselves for a little bit, it’s usually only to save up for a bigger purchase. Pisces, for example, are prone to impulse shopping, but with a little determination, you could be a savings superstar. Leos, on the other hand, are trend-chasers, so that money tends to disappear into the latest fashions. If you can curb that habit, you can still enjoy trends and have a little money in the bank.
Even the most overindulgent star signs are capable of saving money, while the most frugal can learn to loosen up and spend some of that hard-earned cash, and your horoscope can be useful in guiding those decisions. Let the stars help you determine when exciting opportunities are on your doorstep and when it’s time to show restraint. The key is to make sure your spending supports your long-term goals, rather than undermining them by leaving you in debt.
