You can tell a lot about a person by their star sign. Mostly, that’s whether or not they take it seriously – but there are definitely some interesting insights floating around in the ether.
There’s info on love life, health and mental wellbeing. But when it comes to superannuation and retirement savings, what can your star sign tell you about how successful you might be?
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Aries you special thing you. You’re an optimistic, courageous and passionate being – unfortunately, the stars predict your finances might not be quite where they could be.
You can be impatient and impulsive, and when you mix those traits with money, it suggests you might not naturally take to saving for a long term goal such as retirement. If you can’t see the immediate gains now, you struggle to have the patience for making the effort. Plus, your impulsiveness makes walking past that sale all the more difficult.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
A bull might not be the cutest, fuzziest little star sign creature you’ve ever seen, but the positive traits of this beast may well work in your favour.
You are steadfast, dependable, driven, patient and strong-willed. In stocks, a ‘bullish market’ describes an upward trend, so if you can be ‘bullish’ with your savings goals, you may be better placed to retire with some savings in the bank.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
You’re a paradox Gemini. The sign of the twins, Geminis are full of dual personalities and contradictions, but if there’s one thing you’re known for, it’s intelligence. You love a good challenge and hate being bored, and your independence is famous.
Your rationality and desire for independence in retirement may serve you well, as you know you need finances to live on through the golden years, and the more you have the more independent you may be able to be.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
You’re known as the moody ones, Cancerians. Though it’s not wise to call a Cancerian moody, apparently, as you tend to take it to heart.
So for the positives: Your high-running emotions make you one of the most caring and loving star signs. You’re incredibly loyal, protective and dependable. And the best part for your superannuation plans? You’re thrifty, which means one of your strong points is making savings where you can and putting them away for a rainy day. This comes from a desire for a sense of security, which a solid retirement fund could help you with.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Kings and queens of the jungle, Leos love a little limelight – or a lot.
You’re great fun to be around Leo. You’re energetic and kind, the type to draw a crowd around you and hold their attention with ease. You enjoy spending money, especially as it comes with the territory of being such a social butterfly. You might find it harder to save money for the future when you’re out and about, and your optimistic nature might allow you to believe it will all work out regardless.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Rational, precise, intelligent and analytical. While this probably makes you a great Tetris player, you could also put these skills to excellent use in your finances.
While your attention to detail and precision can help you, it may also hinder you, as you get so hung up on details. Remember not to get caught up on the little things and focus on the great picture, and the end goal of a comfortable savings account!
