Financial Sabotage – How Each Zodiac Sign Can Screw Up
Despite our best efforts to keep a perfect financial flow going in our lives, how many times do we fail to you set it straight — this Watergate? If you are willing to face the inner saboteur induced by quirks in your personality, you are halfway there.
Aries Zodiac Sign
Impulse buys can instantly set you back into the red, and just as you were starting to make progress on your spending-savings ratio. Kamikaze spending habits are so two thousand and late. You love challenges, so try saving a quarter of your income over the next year. Put that Arian noggin to good use — a penny saved is one Ram less burned.
Taurus Zodiac Sign
Playing it too safe, putting all of your eggs into one trusty basket, or being loyal to a financial fault are just a few typical Taurus no-no’s when it comes to avoiding fiascos. Of course being the sign of money, it’s rarely that dramatic — it’s usually a slow draining of fundage that happens over time when you refuse to bust a risky move.
Gemini Zodiac Sign
Blame it on the evil twin who steals your credit card and goes on a luxury bender when the good twin isn’t looking. Other sabotaging factors include inconsistency and the part of your psyche that refuses to play grown-up and live within your means. It’s not a bad idea to have two bank accounts, one for saving and for splurging.
Cancer Zodiac Sign
You’re famous for your under the mattress banking methods, but that doesn’t quite yield the dividends darling. As scary as it is in this market of dire uncertainty, it might pay to get some good counsel and venture out into the daring world of investments. You can always leave a little extra back-up stash in your humble abode for safekeeping.
Leo Zodiac Sign
When your bank balance goes south you can blame it on your inner superstar complex. It takes some serious coin to finance your royal, red carpet swagger and you’re certainly not one to cheap out when it comes to … well, anything. That’s the problem, you do everything large Leo — especially throwing your cash around like a big shot and spoiling those you love.
Virgo Zodiac Sign
You’re an odd case Virgo because your brand of sabotage is rather tricky — you sabotage by being too good. You get so engrossed in your worried workaholic frenzy, you don’t even have time to enjoy the money you make. Plus you feel you never have enough. Money isn’t just the root of all evil — it could be the very ticket out of your neurosis, if you’d just learn to dip into your stash.
Libra Zodiac Sign
I’m sure you’ve heard this a thousand times, and I hate to be the one to beat a dead horse — but the only thing stopping you from financial greatness is the big L word. Laziness is the killer Libra. You get comfy in your leisurely patterns out of fear of tipping your delicate scales. The early bird catches the worm — and yes that means forsaking your beauty sleep if you want that green.
Scorpio Zodiac Sign
You’re undoubtedly aware of your own arsenal of sabotage but just in case you’re in a denial phase and need a little friendly reminder of your inclination to destructive decadence, here goes. You love and hate with equal fervor and the same passion applies to your approach to saving and spending. Face it Scorp, there’s just no middle ground, is there?
Sagittarius Zodiac Sign
Lucky Sagittarians forever land on their feet and are rescued from total devastation just in the nick of time— but this is actually the problem. You rely on that eleventh hour saving grace to come in and shelter you from ruin rather than create your own safety net—and thus you never get ahead. Plus living life like you’re on an endless vacation is fabulous but hard on the piggy.
Capricorn Zodiac Sign
A Capricorn sabotage their finances? Blasphemy! You pride yourself on your pragmatism and good common “a penny saved” sense, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few inherent traps of the material world. For one thing, you can’t stand shabby quality or imitation fakes — but quality costs darling. And being overly conservative could cause you to miss windfall opportunities.
Aquarius Zodiac Sign
The dips and dives in your portfolio are often a direct representation of your inevitable eccentric streak. You’ll save and save and save and then suddenly decide you need to turn your apartment into a photo studio in one fell swoop, or buy a rare but expensive velvet jacket just because. These are the kind of quirky whims that can set you back.
Pisces Zodiac Sign
Oh poor dear Pisces, sabotage is your middle name when it comes to dreary, earthy things like paying bills. Between wanting to save the world with one fell checkbook and believing that fairytale magic can save you from debt collectors, you run the risk of being — shall we say — a tad bit unrealistic when it comes to finances. But then again, Anthony Robbins is a Pisces, so there is hope.
