Anyone can be rich and successful if they put their heart and soul into their work. Sure, some people have better odds than others in finding riches. Sometimes you’re born into wealth, other times you’re marrying a rich spouse. You may even become a multimillionaire by winning a lottery. But that’s not what we’re discussing here. The type of rich we are talking about is the riches you earn through your own merit — through hard work and good decision making.

Just because anyone can become rich doesn’t mean everyone will become rich. Some folks just don’t have the secret ingredient in them to ascend to great wealth. So what does astrology have to say about all this? Which zodiac signs are the least probable to find riches given their archetypical traits? Let’s find out now.

1. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, whether you are to become rich or not will really depend on the direction you take. You are innovative, intelligent, and unique. You are capable of becoming rich by inventing something useful and captivating. You’re even naturally good with money. However, what stands in your way more than anything is the fact that you are very detached and you have a hard time trusting others.

You may have created the best product in the world but you will need to trust a professional marketer to get it out there. This is where you can run into trouble. You see someone helping you out as them taking away your idea and limelight. And so you don’t like to share your ideas with anyone else. It’s a shame because Aquarius, you have a lot of amazing ideas but you tend to keep it to yourself which, ironically, leaves a lot of money on the table.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarians in their purest astrological form aren’t very likely to become wealthy. The reason for that is similar to Aquarius. You are highly creative, you are passionate about your creations, and you have some fantastic ideas that can make you money. You may even generate income by selling your art. However, you are the type that would rather be wearing all the hats on your own head — metaphorically speaking. You do not want to have anyone else help you out, and you don’t want to be tied down to others as well when it comes to business and money. You can still find success by being a lone wolf, but that diminishes your chances of finding great wealth. People say, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. And that’s a quote that an ambitious Sagittarius person should keep in mind.

3. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

To sum up, Cancer, the reason that you are not likely to become rich is that you hate getting out of your comfort zone. You’re clinically risk-averse and a natural skeptic. You are skeptical of any type of business opportunity that is presented to you. Sometimes skepticism can be a good thing because it helps you to avoid pitfalls like scams. However, even when it comes to legitimate opportunities, you will not accept them because you are too far into your comfort zone to try something new.

Learn to take calculated risks. You need to be willing to try new things and to get out of your comfort zone. Staying in your comfort zone does not allow the growth of any kind to happen at all. Author & businessman Thomas Harv Eker said, “It’s simple arithmetic: Your income can grow only to the extent that you do”. In Cancer’s case, the rigid comfort zone is limiting the sign’s growth as a person and that gets reflected in their income.

4. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, you have the desire to get rich. However, there is also fear holding you back from making things happen. You may jump at an opportunity that appears to be too good to be true because how can you not? It sounds easy and it sounds like you would get rich fast, but those are usually scams that will get you hurt in the end. Other times, you shy away from legitimate opportunities because they require you to get out of your comfort zone.

In other words, Pisces, you want to be wealthy and successful but you have the tendency of taking the wrong routes. Remember if something sounds too good to be true such as a money-making opportunity that was presented to you, then it is a scam. And if something is presented to you that is legitimate that requires you to put in some work and effort, you will have to find a way to get out of your comfort zone and not let fear hold you back.

5. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, you have the natural tendency to love money (and be good at managing money, too). But there’s one thing that stands between you and all the riches in the world — yourself. You’re afraid of making decisions. You also lack the conviction that you could become successful. Deep down you are unsure of what you really want. Because of these reasons, you will not find a direction that motivates you to make money. You may also be too hard on yourself for not knowing about what to do. You don’t think you could handle the responsibility of making money on your own. Your own thoughts get into the way of your success.

6. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, you are scattered and you are afraid to make commitments. You need to be focused, decisive, and committed to becoming successful. You can’t just spend half an hour working on something and immediately switching to doing something else because you’re bored. The lack of focus, consistency, and the ability to commit is why Gemini makes it to this list as one of the signs that are least probable to find riches.

Air Signs and Money

If you pay close attention to these signs, you would notice that the signs on this list are all air signs. Air signs are flexible and easy-going but they can sometimes be all talk and all thinking but no action. However, if you are a Gemini and you are a self-made multimillionaire, check your birth chart! You may have earth signs that make up a large part of your horoscope that helps to balance that out.
