Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Horoscope, Richest Person

Wouldn’t it be amazing if all you had to do to become one of the richest people in the world was to be born under a certain zodiac sign?

It didn’t matter what your profession was or anything like that — if you were a certain sign, you would be destined to grow up and become a billionaire.

It sure would be nice to be the richest person who was simply born at the right time, at the right place, and under the right horoscope to get the right traits for wealth. 

That would be the ultimate dream, in my opinion, right after owning the world’s first unicorn sanctuary. But unfortunately, the stars do not work like that.

They can, however, tell you just which zodiac sign the most billionaires can call their own and which zodiac sign the richest person in the world claims.

As for the most billionaires, Leo wins that title, of course.

If Leo’s determination and drive doesn’t convince you that she deserves to be rich, then I don’t know what does.

Not only that, but she never backs down. Think about it.

Have you ever met a Leo that wasn’t thinking years into the future about how successful she’s going to be?

And as someone with incredibly expensive taste, it’s a good thing she’s going to become a billionaire one day.

As for the zodiac sign of the richest person in the world, it used to be Scorpio, with Bill Gates holding that title for a looooong time, but now the crown has been passed to Jeff Bezos, a Capricorn and the founder of Amazon.

To Jeff Bezos, I have only one message for you: Congratulations on your amazing accomplishment and can I borrow a few bucks from you?

I use the term “borrow” lightly as I don’t plan on giving the money back. But don’t tell Jeff that.

As for the rest of the signs, don’t worry, there are billionaires who are born under each star, with some signs boasting more rich people than others.

But it’s what your sign’s strengths are that will help you on your own road to becoming flush with so much cash you don’t know what to do with it all (I’ll set up a PayPal account for those times and you can let me hold onto it).

And we all have strengths that can be put to good use if becoming a billionaire is something you want to achieve.

Who knows? You might even be able to take the title of richest person in the world away from Jeff Bezos.

You never know, it could happen! Keep reading to find out the horoscopes and zodiac signs of the richest people in the world, as well as how your own astrology sign has the opportunity to become one of these billionaires.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19):

Larry Page & Amancio Ortega ​

Booth Co

Aries, you are incredibly determined to succeed and very passionate about life, which if you ask me, are great qualities for someone to have if they want to be rich.

Yeah, you can be pretty impulsive at times, but just because you tend to throw your cash around blindly at times doesn’t mean you’re not still smart when it comes to big-time investments.

And speaking of investments, your courage to go out and risk some money just to earn more is something that any billionaire worth is salt would call smart.

Take some business advice from fellow Aries billionaires like Google co-founder Larry Page (worth $29.7 billion) and Zara founder Amancio Ortega (worth $64.5 billion) because they know what’s up.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20):

Mark Zuckerberg & Susanne Klatten

Huffington Post

Taurus, what makes you such a good candidate for being rich (if there were such a thing) is that you know what it takes to be a great leader.

The fact that you’re so reliable and practical means you really think about the strategies needed to launch your new ideas or make an investment happen without getting distracted by your competition. You’d rather take things slow instead of being naïve about your investments.

Of course, you can also be pretty possessive, which means if you’re not careful, you can easily get caught up in the money and lose it as quickly as you earned it.

Be smart like Taurus billionaires Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook (worth $33.4 billion) and Susanne Klatten, BMW heiress (worth $16.8 billion) and figure out what it takes to run a business, not make money just because you can.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20):

David Thomson & Jim Walton

Huffington Post

As a Gemini, you’re no stranger to learning new things and grasping new concepts quickly. You love the idea of bouncing ideas off of a partner, which not only allows you to learn something new, but it also peaks your curiosity and opens your mind.

You’d love to make money doing what you love, but you also want to bring your ideas into reality instead of just worrying about making a quick buck. Gemini, you’re highly adaptable in a variety of situations, just like Thomson Reuters chairman David Thomson (worth $25.5 billion) and Walmart heir Jim Walton (worth $40.6 billion).

It doesn’t matter if you’re up against big competition or in uncharted waters, you work through the unknown like a pro. Adaptability is a great quality for rich people because it means nothing can bring you down or make you quit.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22):

Elon Musk  & Shiv Nadar

Masala Talks

Cancer, your tenacity to get things done is an amazing quality, especially if you plan on being the best of the best and making a ton of money. Being tenacious means you’re willing to do whatever it takes to come out on top.

You’re also very loyal, which means you won’t abandon partners or businesses in search for something better; you’d rather use your head and listen to your instincts.

What makes you unique — like many Cancer billionaires — is that you aren’t afraid to throw imagination and creativity into your work. You know that anyone can copy you, but if you do your own thing without worrying about what others think, you’ll always be on top.

Look to Cancers like Tesla Motors founder and CEO Elon Musk (worth $12 billion) and HCL co-founder Shiv Nadar (worth $11.4 billion) for inspiration.

LEO (July 23 - August 22):

Francois Pinault  & Sergey Brin


If your middle name isn’t already Successful Billionaire, Leo, then you might want to change it. Not only are you passionate about the work you do, but you’re also positive that you can succeed.

You don’t really care about the money (though it does help) as long as you can say with a smile that your job is your favorite thing to do. But while your determination makes you successful, your creativity is what makes you rich.

You’ve never been a big fan of playing by the rules, so you don’t. You want to be what makes your business profitable, not because you followed the rules like everyone else.

You can get caught up in the excitement of being the bad girl of the business world, but that’s what makes it fun. Leo billionaires Gucci and YSL owner Francois Pinault (worth $14.9 billion) and Google co-founder Sergey Brin (worth $29.2 billion) would agree.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22):

Warren Buffett  & Jack Ma​

Vladimir Ribakov

When you put your mind to something, Virgo, you almost always succeed. You might be all work and no play at times, but that’s only because you know your hard work will pay off big time (literally).

You also know your worth and aren’t afraid to prove it — even if you get turned away. This quality alone makes for a very rich and successful person; there’s no such thing as “no” for you.

Your loyal and practical nature means you stick to things you’re passionate about (like your work). You don’t quit easily and you always keep your chin up, even in the hardest times.

Becoming rich isn’t easy, but you know you’ll get there. When you need motivation, look to business magnate Warren Buffett (worth $72.7 billion) and Alibaba Group chairman Jack Ma (worth $22.7 billion).

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22):

Liliane Bettencourt & Alice Walton


One of the best ways to get your foot in the door when you want to become a billionaire or just be successful is networking. For you, Libra, that is no problem.

You are naturally social and you love a good crowd, specifically for the fact that you almost always meet someone interesting. You are also not shy about talking about your future in a successful business, which is important when pitching ideas to those you’re networking with.

Your ability to stay friendly and honest — even in a cutthroat business like business — gets you farther than you think in life. Some would rather walk over anyone who gets in their way, but you catch more flies with honey, so you stay humble and kind (and flush with cash).

Your Libra role models should be L’Oréal heiress Liliane Bettencourt (worth &40.1 billion) and Walmart heiress Alice Walton (worth $39.4 billion).

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21):

Bill Gates & Laurene Powell Jobs

Gates Notes

Scorpio, your passion to succeed is an important quality to have if you want to become rich; you not only want to show everyone that you can accomplish what you put your mind to, but you also want to show people that you’re a force to be reckoned with.

Some think your stubbornness gets in the way of your success, but really, it helps you keep your eyes on the prize. It also helps that you’re incredibly brave and resourceful. You know that money comes and goes, even when you’re a billionaire.

But even when you have to work harder to keep your funds up, you never quit. In fact, you’re brave enough to take risks, even when the chips are down. You’re already starting to act like Scorpio billionaires Bill Gates (worth $79.2 billion) and Steve Jobs’ wife, Laurene Powell Jobs (worth $19.5 billion).

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 19):

Lei Jun & Ann Cox Chambers​


Sagittarius, you may be one of the most impatient signs, but that’s only because you have big plans for yourself and you want that cash flowing as soon as possible.

You’re also one of the more idealistic signs, which can be your downfall if you’re smart about it, but if you are, it can mean bringing your own personal flair to your success — which is how all the one-of-a-kind billionaires in the business do it.

When you put your mind to something, you rarely fail. And because you’re much more enthusiastic about a job when you love what you do, it’s important for you to make time for fun at work.

But one thing that makes you stand out is your generosity; just because you’re rich doesn’t mean you can’t help others! Take notes from Xiaomi founder Lei Jun (worth $13.2 billion) and media tycoon Ann Cox Chambers (worth $17 billion).

CAPRICORN (December 20 - January 19):

Jeff Bezos & Lee Kun-Hee


Capricorn, you are no stranger to hard work. In fact, you thrive in it. You like the daily grind and satisfaction that comes with a good day of work. And as a recognized leader by all of your peers, it’s easy to see how you could become one of the richest people in the world — or at least a rich person who everyone wishes were them.

You know how to be responsible, which is one of your best qualities. Rather than frivolously spend your money or make bad investment decisions, you use your brain to get you where you want to be, all with discipline and self-control.

You might not be the most creative, but you’ll still make money like Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos (worth $34.8 billion) and Samsung chairman Lee Kun-Hee (worth $11.3 billion).

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18):

Michael Bloomberg & Carlos Slim Helu

Best Buddies Blog

As an Aquarius, you are in the small group of people who are destined to become rich because you think outside the box. Your creativity and individuality are what make you a force to be reckoned with, and your ability to push forward when you want to succeed is what makes you prone to greatness.

When it comes to becoming a billionaire, you don't want to be like everyone else. It's common for your horoscope to create something brand new or groundbreaking because you'd rather stand out than get lost in all these other billionaires.

You also believe in finding success in multiple ventures, like business magnate and NY mayor Michael Bloomberg (worth $35.5 billion) and telecom tycoon Carlos Slim Helu (worth $77.1 billion).

PISCES (February 19 - March 20):

Michael Dell & Rupert Murdoch

Moderate Independent

Pisces, you're all about going with your gut and listening to your heart, which might seem like a crazy way to do business and get rich, but for you it works.

Instead of worrying over numbers and other people's opinions all the time, you trust yourself. It also helps that you're one of the wisest signs, which means even though other signs don't operate the way you do, they still know your success is well deserved. 

You're a very compassionate person, Pisces, which makes you more likely to make your fortune with a partner instead of alone. You know you can do it on your own, but you also enjoy sharing your successes with people who can appreciate it.

Look to media tycoon Rupert Murdoch (worth $13.9 billion) and Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell (worth $19.2 billion) for inspiration.
