One of the most promising parts of any new year is that there are no promises in regards to what the future holds. But, we can get a little preview of what our year might look like by taking a look at our horoscope. And before you scoff at the thought of relying on the stars and planets for predictions, remember, the universe never lies.
With that being said, Mozo’s connection to the stars is a work in progress and should be taken lightly, regardless of what your financial future holds.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
In a nutshell – A fun, but intelligent type, the aquarius tends to anyone in need while maintaining their own independence.
Your prediction – Aquarius, you were born to be active and 2018 will not slow you down. This is the year to use your eccentric energy to reach your financial goals. While you may feel that you are strapped for time, keep your eye on the prize to fight for your greater good.
Financial tip – Although an air sign, your head needs to stay out of the clouds with adequate mental stimulation. Be sure to keep up with the latest banking trends and other financial news that could make or break your 2018.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
In a nutshell – Gentle and artistic in nature, the Pisces always practises generosity without expecting anything in return.
Your prediction – A leader in keeping positive personal relationships, it’s wise not to disregard the relationships you keep with powers somewhat higher than you (*cough* your credit card statement). Use your natural wisdom to devise a budget to keep you on top of your repayments this year.
Financial tip – Do not limit yourself to pen and paper, but extend your wisdom to other resources.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
In a nutshell – Being apart of the element of fire, the Aries was born with passion, determination and confidence. However, your fiery personality often leads you to be impulsive and aggressive.
Your prediction – While it’s fun to be spontaneous, you may find yourself in financial difficulty if you act impulsively and accept the first offer. You will achieve your financial dreams this year Aries, but you need to exercise patience to shop around first if you’re seeking outside help with a personal loan.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
In a nutshell – A lover of all things glitz and glam, the Taurus is hard working, stubborn, and a sucker for romance.
Your prediction – You’re known for your love of money while being ruled by Venus, the planet of love, but do not let your love for the material world override your drive to reach your financial goals in 2018. Remember to stay frugal and humble with your spending this year.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
In a nutshell – Hosting two personalities in one is the Gemini. While you never know what side you’re going to get, trust that Geminis are quick thinkers, affectionate, adaptable and curious about the world around them.
Your prediction – Unlike the Taurus, money and financial gain is something you could do without – if you had the choice, that is. However, curiosity will not kill this two-sided cat. Take charge of your financial future this year and seek the financial assistance you may not realise you need. You know that you could be using your money more wisely Gemini, so it’s time to find your way to a secure future.
Financial tip – This is your year to make every dollar count with some consistency. Don’t be scared to try something new with saving. Our Life and Money hub can help give your finances a boost to make your 2018 your richest year yet.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
In a nutshell – Recognised as one of the most challenging signs to understand is Cancer due to their moody personalities. Despite being highly emotional and sentimental, Cancer’s also have the ability to manipulate others.
Your prediction – Being the unpredictable character that you are, you like to regularly change things up. While you are ruled by the moon and go through the same lunar phases, you also belong to the element of water. Save yourself from drowning in high energy bills by making the switch to a better value plan. Let go of uncertainty and take the plunge.
Financial tip – Cancer, you’re a fan of quirks and like to think outside of the box. And luckily for you, we’ve got just the thing to get your strange heart racing. Our energy saving tips range from eating raw food to sticking your sheets in the freezer!
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
In a nutshell – The Leo was born to lead with a heart that’s filled with love and warmth. While you consider yourself to be ‘the king of the jungle’, watch your step Leo, as you run the risk of arrogance and narcissism.
Your prediction – There is no doubt that you will be selfish this year Leo, but do it the right way and spoil yourself responsibly with a rewards credit card. You know you want to fly high this year so why not give yourself the ultimate luxury of a free domestic flight and complimentary lounge service.
Financial tip – This piece of plastic is not a game. Watch out for high fees and other traps that could jeopardize the value of your reward.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
In a nutshell – Along with strong attention to detail, the Virgo appreciates nature, but more importantly, the value of hardwork. However, your strong professional drive often leads to little time for play.
Your prediction – Directing your energy towards your finances will be a chore Virgo, so take it as a challenge and your mind will be content. If you haven’t reviewed your home loan, home or car insurance for a while, this is your year to do an overdue audit of all your financial products and hunt for a better deal.
Financial tip – Loyalty is your strength, but do not let it also be your weakness. If your provider will not meet your demand for a better rate, it’s time to move on.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
In a nutshell – Libra’s take on the world with grace and a fair mind. You desire partnership and harmony whether in the form of a lover or professionally, but have the tendency to be indecisive on the things that matter most.
Your prediction – Libra, if you have found your other half, congratulations. But once you decide to solidify this partnership with marriage, there is no shame in seeking a wedding loan to help you and your partner celebrate with class.
Financial tip – It’s a dream to be in love, but do not let this cloud your judgement when making important decisions. Understand and avoid the wedding traps that could tamper with your big day.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
In a nutshell – On an endless mission to always find the truth is the Scorpio. Naturally assertive and passionate, your determination knows no limits. But it’s your temper that often gets the better of you.
Your prediction – Scorpio, let your skill for adaptation shine in 2018 by opening your mind to new financial opportunities, like investment. You will do the research because planning and organising are what you do best.
Financial tip – It’s unlike a Scorpio to dive into a project without having all the facts first. Treat your mind to a crash course on investment with our range of guides.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
In a nutshell – Naturally motivated by freedom and travel is the Sagittarius. Along with your great sense of humour, you believe in the joy being outdoor offers, but often fall short by biting off more than you can chew with your commitments and promises.
Your prediction – The world will continue to be your oyster in 2018, but do not put yourself or your travel companions in danger by having no security. Before you embark on your next adventure, find the patience to insure your journey against unpredictable events.
Financial tip – Do not waste any time, Sagittarius, travel insurance is best booked ASAP to guarantee cancellation cover, adequate research and the flexibility to adjust your level of cover.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
In a nutshell – A professional at exercising effective self-control and discipline is the Capricorn. While you tend to be unforgiving and always expect the worst from another person’s performance, your effective management skills bring out the best bits of your personality.
Your prediction – Patience will truly be your virtue in 2018, Capricorn, as hard work and perseverance is nothing new to you, which is why opening a term deposit could be right for you. Not only will this put your self-control to the test, you’ll receive a decent reward for it too.
Financial tip – Since you’re always up for a challenge and have no trouble with commitment, why not extend the length of your term deposit to 2 years – you’ll likely see better growth on your savings, which you can then put towards achieving an even bigger goal.
