Why do people believe in astrology? The answer to the question lies very much in the same realm as why people believe in just about any superstition.
Astrology is popular among people of all religions and cultures around the globe. It offers a number of things which many people find very desirable: information and assurance about the future, a way to be released of their current situation and future decisions, and a way to feel connected to the entire cosmos.
Categorized as the “New Age”, astrology shares many beliefs which tend to be for example the idea that nothing in life is truly coincidental.
People make it a habit to consult their weekly or daily horoscopes and believe in phenomena such as lucky numbers, days, months, stones….you name it. A recent study has shown that 58 per cent of 18-24-year-old Americans strongly believes that astrology is scientific.
We’re a generation that basically resists labels and refuses to be categorized, so it’s odd that so many obsessively read their horoscopes.
Since nothing happens by coincidence, astrology claims to provide at least some of the answers as to why they happen, and perhaps even a way to predict them in advance.
There are 12 zodiac signs that belong to 4 different elements, fire, water, earth, and air, and the traits of each sign match its respective element. Different qualities, strengths, and weaknesses and emotions are attributed to each sign and their future is predicted accordingly.
Similarly, astrologers suggest that the financial prospects of a person are also dependent on which part of the year he was born in. It is the potential and the destiny of a star sign that determines an individual’s level of prosperity to some extent. While some star signs make better artists, others possess the ability to excel as financial managers. Thus, it is believed that choosing a field of study or a career in accordance with your zodiac signs ensures success.
Following are the 5 Zodiac signs that are most likely to make a fortune, based on their personality, behavior, and lifestyle.

In the words of astrologer Michael Lutin, “Virgos are known to be determined, hardworking, analytical, and detail-oriented. They are driven more by their desire to achieve their goal at whatever they do than by the pursuit of fame and riches“.
Virgo is an earth sign. They are “grounded” and are closer to the material realities of the world. Virgos are epitomes of eloquence and amongst the calmest star signs. They know how to maintain their cool during the toughest of situations. Their ability to react smartly and thoughtfully makes them wonderful managers.
Virgos seek perfections and thus are highly productive professionals that deliver quality work. Be it the aesthetic presentation of their project or the choice of words, they always go for the best. They see the potential for improvement in everything and every next thing they do has to surpass the merit set by the previous.
Warren Buffett and Larry Ellison, two of the wealthiest American billionaires, are both Virgos.

Scorpio is a water sign and these people have strong intuitive powers and psychic abilities. They are the most curious ones and make great detectives.

Cancer is a water sign. They are nourishing individuals and motivate others to grow. Their ability to be helpful towards others is because of their strong sense of self-confidence and their compassionate nature.
Cancers are super sensitive and care deeply and unconditionally. This is why they share strong bonds with their co-workers and build up a team. They have great communication skills and can attract a following among those around them. They take up the role of a counselor at home and at the workplace.
They dare to live a creative life and have their heads bursting with ideas. They are most likely to establish a business out of their artistic abilities and interests. They do what they love and love what they do, and thus their chances of getting exhausted and giving up are minimal.
The remaining 7 Zodiac signs are all capable of achieving their goals and getting rich. While stars do play a role in determining your “chances”, they are not a guarantee that one will be ruling the world or struggling hard to make a living. Your success depends on the effort you put into fulfilling your aims.
