As one year draws to a close and makes way for another, we thought to ourselves, what better way to advise our consumers than to call upon the motion of the planets? Read on for some extremely well researched, scientifically accurate financial horoscopes, and get a leg up on whatever the new year may throw your way! (Full disclosure: while the KLS team members do wear quite a lot of hats, we don’t actually moonlight as astrologists – so please take our fun astral predictions with a grain of salt!)
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
The first sign of the zodiac! The typical Aries is headstrong, fearless, and highly determined. While your spontaneity and daring can make you one of the most exciting signs to be around, it can also cause you to fall victim to pricey impulse buys. Try approaching purchases with a cooler head and exercising a bit of restraint in your spending habits as you enter the new year – plenty of material objects will try to call to you this week, but you have the power to resist their siren songs!
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Much like the bull that represents your sign, you are usually quite calm, grounded, and extremely focused. However, if your buttons are pushed just right, you can become as aggressive and angry as, well…a raging bull. Your steadiness and desire for stability typically manifests itself in very careful spending and structured saving. This week, an important business opportunity will fall into your lap, so go the opposite route as Aries and allow yourself to relax some of that rigidity. After all, sometimes you have to spend money to make money!
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Gemini is undoubtedly one of the busiest and most curious signs of all. Your mind is constantly abuzz with countless questions, ideas, and game plans, and you’re always on the hunt for the next big adventure. However, your tendency to begin multiple projects at once often leads to unfinished work; you become disinterested just as quickly as you initially became enamored. A financial setback may be in the cards for you this January, so try to organize your thoughts to the best of your abilities and put a concrete savings plan into place. Geminis are extremely intelligent and driven, so you should be back on your feet in no time.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Cancer, it’s no secret that you love creature comforts – a cozy, beautiful living space, an especially good cup of coffee, and lots and lots of affection. In addition to cultivating a cheerful atmosphere for yourself, you also try your hardest to create strong, nurturing relationships with your loved ones in order to ensure that they always feel happy and appreciated in your presence. This week, someone close to you may be feeling down, so now is your time to shine! Go ahead and pick up a few odds and ends to craft a heartfelt care package – you’ll enjoy the process, and someone you love will welcome 2020 in a positive light, thanks to your thoughtfulness.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Just as a lion is the king of the jungle, a Leo is the king of the zodiac. Extremely confident, assertive, and take charge, Leos often have no problems throwing cash around. Since you normally never shy away from an opportunity for a personal treat, why not kick off the new year by spending outside of yourself? Practice some humility and make a charitable donation, or carry out a kind gesture by paying for a stranger’s coffee order. You may be surprised by how rewarding it can be to put your money towards someone else!
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Unlike Leos, Virgos tend to be extraordinarily careful with money. You are the definition of a perfectionist, and it absolutely carries over into your financial habits – it wouldn’t be a surprise to learn that you budget down to the penny, and you definitely own at least one planner. Sometimes, however, your desire for faultlessness and absolute control can lead you to be a bit stingy with your money. This has likely caused some personal rifts in the past, so listen to your partner and your loved ones this year when they offer up advice. You’re almost too cautious to find yourself in an unsavory financial situation, so don’t be afraid of your expendable income!
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Libra, you are exceptionally intelligent, analytical, and observant. These characteristics also result in you being quite empathetic, attuned to the feelings of your loved ones, and an unwavering champion of the downtrodden. Your own finances are very likely in perfect order, but someone close to you may begin the year in a sticky financial state. Extend a hand and guide them back to the right direction. You are the happiest when those you love are happy, so now is the perfect time to share some of your monetary wisdom.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Ah, Scorpio. You are quite possibly the most intense, emotionally passionate, and sometimes flighty sign in the entire zodiac (this author would know – Scorpio speaking!). As a textbook overachiever and lover of extreme planning, you usually have a very tight grip on your finances. Your knack for saving and shooting for the stars definitely comes in handy where money is concerned, but it can also lead to an inability to be satisfied. Even if you had twenty five thousand dollars in the bank, you would feel as though it should be fifty. Be kind to yourself this year – celebrate your accomplishments and stop comparing yourself to others!
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Sagittarius tends to be a very lucky sign – financial opportunities fall into your lap with surprising frequency, and you never seem to want for much. However, you may find that some unexpected expenses will stand in your way in 2020. Now this the time to practice planning! Call on your Libra and Virgo friends for tips on how to make the best of a less than ideal situation. Your determination, strong work ethic, and optimism will serve you particularly well as you formulate a budget for 2020.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
More so than nearly any other sign, Capricorns are seemingly born with the innate ability to make money – and lots of it. You are beyond driven; a true workaholic and go-getter with extremely high standards and lofty personal goals. Never one to slack off, you put forth 110% of your effort into every endeavor, and you won’t rest until the job is done. Good news, Capricorn – your exacting calculations and drive to succeed will pay off this year! Keep up the hard work and be on the lookout for a well-deserved financial windfall.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Those born under the sign of Aquarius are particularly reliable, consistent, and disciplined. As an Aquarius, you display an intense work ethic, a zeal for self-improvement, and a steady commitment to everything you do. All of the efforts you exert can have a tendency to burn you out, and in turn lead you to question the cost of most outcomes – are they really worth the blood, sweat, and tears? Don’t let yourself run out of steam just yet! 2020 will bring you plenty of rewards for your labors and bolster a new sense of pride in your work.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Pisces are total dreamers, with vivid imaginations and a love for fantasy. Your aquatic namesake doesn’t lie – you usually go with the flow and allow yourself to be carried wherever life’s currents take you. However, this can sometimes lead to financial impulsivity and negligence. You likely ascribe to the notion of “it’s just money, I’ll make more in two weeks!”, but be warned – your casual attitude towards money may prove to be a hindrance this year. Learn to weigh the pros and cons of each purchase, and never take your paychecks for granted.
From all of us here at KLS, we wish you a safe, prosperous, and extremely Happy New Year! Hopefully you had just as much fun reading these horoscopes as we did writing them, and, on a note slightly more grounded in reality: don’t ever forget that we’re here to help. Keep checking in each week for (actual) continued financial advice and guidance, and just maybe…keep a close eye on the stars!
