Imagine if you woke up tomorrow and suddenly won the lottery, or inherited a fortune? From a dreary 9 to 5 life involving travelling in local trains and taking autos, your entire lifestyle would be upgraded to a level of unimaginable luxury. What would you, a nouveau riche ball of ecstasy, do with all this money, then? More importantly, what common activity would you and all those born under the same zodiac sign as you, do in this situation? Below, we discuss the “rich-person” traits you’re likely to develop based on your sun sign!
Arians are quite obsessive about their appearance and very particular about their identity. They would blow tonnes of money on customised, personalised, or monogrammed items. They would love to put their initials on everything, from tableware and bath towels, to custom-made bags and shoes.
Taureans like luxury, but they are also very good with money. So, even the wealthiest of them rarely make a stupid financial decision. Their “rich person” activity would be investing in breath-taking real-estate. That way, they can take live it up during their vacations on fancy property, but also have that as an asset, should the need arise.
Geminis are generally spendthrifts and the kind of people who are likely to get involved in gambling or betting, because they love the thrill of it. Being ruled by Mercury, they are also the sign of communication, which means that their gadgets or modes of travel, are never sub-par. Private jets, state-of-the-art technology, and more phones than you can imagine, are their indulgences of choice.
Cancerians are quite paranoid about poverty and insecure about losing their money – even the wealthiest of them. So, as rich people, they would hoard things and buy lots of their favourite items (perfumes, cameras, baking tools… The list is eclectic) in bulk – just because they can (but also because they are scared of not being able to afford it later).
Leos are generous people who love putting up a show. Their rich person activity of choice, then, is throwing huge, impeccably tasteful yet extravagant parties – think Gatsby? From expensive alcohol to a variety of entertainment you can’t even dream of, Leos are the ultimate hosts.
Virgos, even the least wealthy of them, are very discerning. So, can you imagine how picky they’d be if they were rich? This is because they don’t like being wasteful or spending money on things which don’t deserve it. So, they are always the people who will look at item after item at a showroom and hate everything. They will turn their noses up at the most expensive of pieces. So, their rich person habit would involve being even more discriminating than they already are – you see, they’re worth it.
Librans love clothes, shoes, home décor and bags, thanks to their Venusian love for all things beautiful. Hence, they would invest a large chunk of their wealth on building an A-class home, with a wardrobe to match. Full of designer heels, IT bags and the most luxurious finery, this would include an extensive range of silks and cashmeres, because that’s just who Libra is!
Scorpio’s main focus in life is power, so as rich people they would use their money to gain clout, influence and even MORE money. Think memberships to elite clubs, investments in the stock market (which doubles their wealth), and buying their way into the fanciest parties, so that they can mingle with people as rich as them and perhaps, get richer in the process.
Sagittarians are thrill-seekers, but also have a kind streak to them. So, while on one hand, they would invest in loads of cars and maybe a yacht or two if they had lots of money, they would also start an in-house shelter for abandoned animals and donate to causes that involve caring for such helpless creatures.
Capricorns have a reputation for being miserly. However, this is often a misunderstanding, because much like Cancerians, they really fear poverty and are well-aware that not everyone has money. So, Capricorns with a lot of money actually give to the needy, and use their wealth for charity, because they don’t want anyone to be as poor as they fear becoming.
Aquarians aren’t usually materialistic and they don’t make money with the intent of making money – it just happens. The same way, they also spend it on random things. It could be a cause they feel deeply for, a beautiful library in their home, or a dozen pairs of Louboutins. For Aquarians, it’s all unpredictable, sudden and eccentric in nature.
Pisceans love escaping into dreamland, so, having enough money to travel at every chance they get, would only encourage this trait. Hence, if a Piscean is rich, they would spend most of their time and money on wooshing off to exotic, beautiful locales, with their bottles of aged scotch and premium red wine in tow!
