Got money troubles? Blame astrology

Astrology studies the influence the stars and planets have on our lives. Twelve zodiac signs represent different periods of the year.

Your zodiac sign and horoscope determine things like how you perform at work, how you act in relationships and even how you handle money, said Rachel Gordon, an astrologer and author.

Medium Brush Stroke

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

They are less likely to invest their money in the stock market and more likely to put it toward alternative investments.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

They have an “out of sight, out of mind approach” to money management and rarely budget, said Miller.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This is a typically competitive zodiac sign, and Aries often try to build wealth as quickly as possible, opting for a get-rich-quick scheme over long-term growth.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is often an over-spender and “really loves the finer things in life,” said Miller. They may struggle with budgeting and living beyond their means.
