They spend it as fast as they make it.

What does it mean to be terrible with money? It might mean that you’re great at earning money, but as fast as you get it, you spend it even faster. No wonder there are so many broke zodiac signs!

Your horoscope may tell you to follow a budget, but you still end up with a zero balance at the end of the month. Is there a way that astrology can help you better manage your money?

Well, being bad with money doesn't mean you’re a bad person or that you’re not frugal. You just may not take your finances as seriously as you should. But people who are good with money save it and don’t feel the need to spend all of it.


Although some zodiac signs are better with money than others, that’s not to say that there are exceptions. Your sign may have the reputation of being a spendthrift, but you grew up knowing the value of money and know what it’s like not to have it so that you’re extremely careful with it.


Don’t beat yourself up if you’re bad with money and end up as one of the broke zodiac signs. Instead, make it a goal to take some small steps toward having a healthier relationship with it.

1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius are very hard-working, so getting money isn't that difficult to them; it's hanging on to it that's the issue. If they want to do something fun and adventurous, they're going to do it. They try to keep a running balance in their head, so they're always shocked when they're overdrawn at the bank.


There are always surprises, fees, and other unexpected debts that come up, yet Sagittarius is always caught unawares. They'd rather have experiences than huge bank accounts.

2. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are the type of people who would willingly give their last few dollars to a homeless person, even if it meant that they had to do without for a few days. Pisces are selfless and they always put others before themselves, even if it makes no financial sense. They will always donate to your charity, give money to the needy, and invest in your crowdfunding campaign.


Their favorite thing about money is what it can do to help people. However, when Pisces has given all they can give to others and they still have some extra money, they'll invest in art books, music, or go to a place that inspires them.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)



Aquarius can't resist new technology. They're the ones waiting in line the night before a new phone is released. They've done the research, and when something new is available, they simply must have it.

They'd rather have a new computer than an investment account, and though they do go through times where they try to be more responsible and frugal with their money, they are extremely inconsistent when it comes to their finances and how they deal with their money.

4. LEO (July 23 - August 22)



Leos try to be careful and conscientious with their money, but where they go off the rails is with gifts. They love giving fabulous presents — to their family, friends, people who've helped them out, and even themselves. Leos don't buy things that are cheap either; they go for the top-of-line designer items.

They don't care if they're accused of being too extravagant. Leos believe in pampering themselves and when they want to get a foot massage, their nails done, or a spa treatment, they're going to go to the finest salon in town.

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)



Libras also tend to be too generous, but their generosity comes from wanting to be liked by everybody. They try to keep track of their money and put some aside for that rainy day, but things always come up. If it's the end of the month, Libra's bank balance is getting low.

There isn't a cause they can resist or a hard luck story that won't melt their heart. The good thing is when they help someone out or use their money to do something fun for them, it's makes them happy. Money may not buy you happiness but it's a good start for Libra.

6. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) 

Gemini really is two-sided when it comes to money. There's the responsible side who has a great job and puts money away for the future, while the other side is more of a gambler.

The gambler side of Gemini loves to make a fast buck, takes chances that a long-shot will pay off big, and invests in get rich quick schemes. The responsible side will try to keep the other side in check, and for a while, things will be financially secure until the fiscal risk taker side rears up.

Hopefully, the most they'll do is buy a raffle or a lottery ticket and they won't gamble away their savings.
