A Sign-by-Sign Look at Financial Self-Sabotage
Despite your best efforts to keep a smooth financial flow going in your life, how many times do you fail to set it straight? If you're willing to face your inner saboteur induced by quirks of your Sun sign's personality, you'll be halfway toward getting it right!
Just as you start to make progress on your spending-savings ratio, impulse buys and kamikaze spending habits can instantly set you back in the red. You love challenges, so try saving a quarter of your income over the next year. Put that Arian noggin to good use -- a penny saved is one Ram less burned.
Playing it too safe, putting all your eggs in one basket, or being loyal to a financial fault are just a few typical Taurus no-nos when it comes to avoiding monetary fiascos. Of course, with Taurus being the sign of money, it's rarely that dramatic. Rather, it's usually a slow draining of funds that happens over time when you refuse to bust a risky move.
Blame it on the evil twin who steals your credit card

Look to where Capricorn, Saturn, and Scorpio fall in your birth chart to learn which areas of your life are under serious renovation at this time. You can also look back to April 2012, when Pluto began a seven-month retrograde in Capricorn, to uncover any possible repeated patterns.

After enduring two months of murky miscommunication mayhem in foggy Pisces, Mercury is ready to move into the straight-shooting fires of Aries for the next few weeks, beginning April 13.

Would Your Sun Sign Let You Move for a Job?Read More »from Would Your Sun Sign Let You Move for a Job?
Would you be willing to uproot yourself and accept a job elsewhere that would improve your financial situation? Learn what your Sun sign's instinctual reaction might be!
Naturally, since adventure runs in their veins, Aries will jump on the opportunity. They possess plenty of courage and generally aren't weighed down by sentimental attachments. Indeed, if the job is a step up in status and compensation, they'll glow with anticipation.
Taurus will resist the idea of moving for work, for their roots run deep and they abhor major change. Adjusting to both a new home and new job will seem a bit too much for them to face at once. That said, they're security-conscious and indulgent, so they could eventually be persuaded....
Gemini will embrace the prospect because they're wanderers at heart -- these folks tend to thrive on change. The notion of living in the same house and working the same job for the rest of their days makes them claustrophobic.
Cancer will be caught in a dilemma. On one

How Your Sun Sign Influences Your Spending HabitsRead More »from How Your Sun Sign Influences Your Spending Habits
Given the unique nature of each Sun sign, certain individuals are better suited to saving money, while others thrive on spending a buck or two. Where do you fit in on the saving-spending spectrum?
The impulsive nature of these Fire signs indicates that spending is a top priority for them. If Aries and Sagittarius can channel this predilection toward investments -- something that comes with the sort of risk their competitive Fire energy loves -- they'll combine that urge to splurge with the potential of stashing money away for the future. Credit cards and sales are no friend of theirs, as they simply facilitate these signs' buy-now-pay-later mentality.
Capricorn, Virgo, Cancer, Scorpio
These four signs are typically practical with money. Virgo and Capricorn each possess a security-conscious Earth influence -- a great help when trying to plan in the long-term. Scorpio likes to stay in control and doesn't spend unnecessarily, while Cancer is cautious and thrifty.
