Think getting rich is a combination of hard work and chance?
You're right! But it definitely helps when you hit the astrological jackpot, by being born under one of the zodiac signs destined to live the good life!
Getting rich can be written in the stars, but just don't leave it all up to your sun sign, you still have to put in the work if you want to reap the rewards…
Here are the top 5 zodiac signs set up to make the big bucks:
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20)
The first of the practical and sturdy earth signs known for their great work ethic is of course Capricorn! This mighty goat is always the first zodiac sign you think of when it comes to money, hard work, and drive for financial abundance.
Have you ever met a Cappy who didn't love money? Me neither!
Even the more spiritual of these folks are still the type to humbly stack their coin without bragging about it. The desire to want to reap the rewards of hard work is basically ingrained in them from a young age, and they literally won't stop until they get there! This sign more than any other produces the most workaholics, and many are known for being frugal to an extreme.
It isn't hard for Capricorns to become addicted to money, and unlike the spendthrifts of the world (*cough* Leo!), these people just love to see it stacking up. They are far too practical and intelligent to squander or invest their hard-earned coin on too many risky endeavours.
The good news is that those under this sign have astrology on their side here because they're naturally set to be one of the top earners, the type to strive for the top and see the plan through to completion. A Capricorn with a goal will do whatever it takes to get there, no matter how long it takes. They possess a logical and practical mind that can avoid distraction, and they are brave enough to face any hiccups along the way.
Some might find them heartless in their pursuit for financial achievement, but they're just naturally better able to put logic over emotions when it comes to making important work-related decisions. A Capricorn man is often the workaholic type and a Capricorn woman usually doesn't mind if she earns more than her partner.
TAURUS (April 21 and May 21)
A Taurus motto would be "work hard, and play even harder". These bulls naturally know what they want and instinctively know how to go after it.
Unlike Capricorn, Taurus rules with both intellect AND emotion, and they usually find that this careful balance always works out in their favour.
They have a specific lifestyle they prefer to live, one of comfort and the finer things, because Taurus rules beauty, luxury, nice surroundings, and good food. They are aware that hard work and financial stability can get them those things, and it usually gets them up off the couch putting in the dedicated hours to get it done!
Financial stability is a keyword that drives every Taurus, since they need and crave stability in every aspect of their life. They will take calm calculated risks for things they feel will be the most stable, because they want consistent income for all their hard work. They don't like anything wishy-washy, whether it's partners or career paths. They like to know that a paycheck is coming each week like clockwork, this makes them feel safe and able to enjoy life the way they want to live it.
A Taurus can't stand the thought of not being able to afford the finest wine, the best food, and the nicest décor for their home. They only expect the best and despite being a relatively lazy sign, much preferring to Netflix and chill (with food of course), they know it takes hard work to achieve and this keeps them on their feet.
Their Infamous Taurus stubbornness is actually a blessing here because they stubbornly go after their goal with extreme determination until they achieve it, not even moved by the struggles along the way, they just…keep…going. This is not a sign that gives up easily! They spend a looong time making decisions, so when they actually make one, they stick to it with an iron grip and you can't pry them off if you tried.
Many times they will stick with something others said they couldn't do, even if it's only to throw it back in the naysayer's faces that they did it! They work hard and know when it is time to play hard too, and they truly immerse themselves (with all senses) into enjoying the fruits of their labor.
They are careful with their spending and have the patience of a saint, coupled with intelligence and perseverance, this gives them the drive and determination to build wealth steadily over time. They are often admired for their tenacity and willingness to succeed despite obstacles.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Another one of the stable and practical earth signs is the methodical Virgo! These people know how to put in the work to get what they want.
A Virgo is OCD about order and things being in their place, they also want stability like most of the other earth signs and will makes lists and checklists (and lists for their lists) to get to where they need to be. They are the type to get rich or die trying, or marry rich and die happy! (no judgment!) They don't really care how they get there as long as they get there.
Virgos are practical, they like nice things and don't always need luxury, but can't handle looking like they haven't worked hard (which they do). Sometimes money just seems to follow them wherever they go, or they hit a strike of luck or an inheritance out of the blue.
The good news is they are great natural accountants, and great with managing their finances, so they know how to get the best rate of return for their investments. Virgos are organized to an extreme and this keeps them on top of all the chaos like a well-oiled machine, just pushing through.
They will continue to put in work long after the financial security has been attained because they are naturally hard workers to the core and thrive on routine and busyness.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo's adore luxury and the finer things in life!
This royal sign is literally the king or queen of the jungle and they won't accept anything but the best.
The best clothes, the best house, the best food, etc. They love living beyond their means, but when this catches up to them and they realize money has to be made before it can be spent, that's when shit gets real!
These lions tend to take a long cat nap before they decide to pull up their socks and get to work. Many are willing to do all it takes, even a bit of "peasant" work if it means affording the lifestyle they desire. These big felines just love the good life in all its forms and aren't afraid of getting their hands dirty to achieve it.
A Leo may not have the same drive and determination as the earth signs to see the other side of setbacks and they rebound without a wounded ego. Though they will continue to get up and try again, even if it means changing professions or taking a different approach. Leo's are big-hearted, loyal, and usually tend to lead with their hearts, but they won't generally last too long where they aren't appreciated (they know their worth!).
These people won't settle for less than they feel they are entitled to, so their standards for themselves are always pretty high. This in itself helps motivate them to keep pushing, since they won't be satisfied unless they're always striving for more.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Natural-born leaders, Aries people are some of the most confidant and strong-willed of the zodiac!
They see what they want and they pursue it relentlessly, even if it means jumping over hurdles or hurting some feelings as they blaze their way toward fulfilling their goals. They could really not care less if they knocked you out of the ranks for the promotion of the job title they were after because they truly live by the motto that "It's every man for himself"!
Aries loves to be the best, and are always challenging themselves on what they believe they can achieve.
Goal-driven and passionate, they believe they deserve the best life has to offer and they are willing to make that happen at all costs! Independent Aries is not one to shy away from a challenge, in fact, they actually thrive on challenge, and this makes for a tenacious personality that just won't quit at the sign of trouble.
They are usually good at problem-solving and working out solutions to get the ball moving again. Aries people are highly resourceful, and also know how to work a crowd with the charm and charisma that comes naturally to this sign. Couple this with their fiery ambition and you have a person poised for success!
Being the passionate sign that you are though, you do tend to get bored easily, so make sure that your 9 to 5 job or business idea provides enough growth and challenge to keep you interested. This way you will never get tired of working towards the riches you are already destined to achieve!
Getting rich might just be written in the stars!
If you're any of the zodiac signs on this list though, you know that it takes more than just luck and a favorable birthday to get the success you seek. These people might make it look easy, but it still takes the right attributes and the willingness to work hard when it comes to attracting wealth and riches.
