I’m sure all the sceptics out there will be first to roll their eyes at the idea of ‘calling upon the stars’ for some insight into our financial destinies. But you’ve got to admit, aren’t you the least bit curious about what the future holds for your bank accounts in 2019? Have a read of your 2019 Money Horoscope to find out if this is the year you break the bank!
Aries Traits: Wise, quick-witted and competitive Aries knows, (not thinks), they know everything, and while the other signs often try to outsmart them, they are yet to be proven otherwise.
2019 Money Horoscope: Hey big spender! In 2019 you’d be wise to pull the reins on your online shopping addiction, Aries. Quitting cold-turkey might be a bit of a stretch, but you should definitely try to be more conscious about investing your money towards things which will benefit you in the long-run. We’d recommend using our Budget Calculator to establish an effective budget to ensure you get the most out of your money in 2019, Aries.
Taurus Traits: Aside from their reputation for being notoriously stubborn, the Taurus is the perfect balance of being reliable yet spontaneous, and definitive yet creative.
2019 Money Horoscope: Count your blessings Taurus, because, with Saturn positioned in Capricorn this year, your workspace is set to become a calm environment, allowing you to meet targets and produce quality work without feeling rushed. You should also expect to attract money from unexpected sources this year Taurus, so consider having a savings account ready for that surprise inheritance cheque or salary bonus.
Gemini Traits: Inquisitive and intelligent, Gemini’s are renowned for having an almost dual personality, symbolised by twins. Gemini’s are highly versatile creatures, able to adapt to many situations.
2019 Money Horoscope: Despite a somewhat bumpy start to 2019 due to Mercury going into retrograde, the new Gemini moon in early June is incredibly promising. Good things come to those who wait, Gemini. When approaching new opportunities this year, take advantage of your natural ability to see two sides of a situation to decide which path is best for you, particularly when comparing different financial options, Gemini. You don’t necessarily need to scrutinise every fine detail in search of imperfections, but rather, look out financial opportunities that will complement your specific needs.
Cancer Traits: A Cancer always follows their heart. When they’re not going through an old family photo album, these big ole’ sentimental softies are probably off defending the ones they love.
2019 Money Horoscope: For you Cancer, 2018 was a year of manifesting your dreams and planning for someday. Lucky for you, 'someday' is today, and 2019 is the year your dreams start to unfold. Thinking about popping the question to your significant other but don’t have the funds for a blowout wedding right now? Consider your options, Cancer. The solution could be as simple as taking out a personal wedding loan. Don’t let money get in the way of your happily ever after, Cancer.
Leo Traits: Self-assured and outgoing, like a lion, Leo’s fiery reputation as the king of the jungle always precedes them.
2019 Money Horoscope: There’s nothing selfish about a little self-love Leo, in fact, it just so happens to be your key to success in 2019. Your instinctive need to recharge and take out time for yourself is what differentiates you from the rest. Why not spoil yourself in 2019 with a quiet Bali getaway? Or perhaps an action-packed European adventure is more your scene? Wherever your travel destination, just make sure you’re fully covered with a travel insurance policy suited to your travel needs, Leo.
Virgo Traits: Determined and motivated, the loyal Virgo is always up for a challenge and hungry for self-improvement and growth.
2019 Money Horoscope: With a ‘new year, new me’ attitude, expect to kickstart 2019 by reaching some killer goals, Virgo. With Jupiter going retrograde in May, you’ll be focused on your financial aspirations and will likely attract relevant opportunities which will get you closer to where you want to be. Keep an eye on real estate for potential investment properties. With the rapidly changing current market, now could be the best time to snatch up your next investment for a quarter of the price.
Libra Traits: Kind, caring and selfless, Libra is the hopeless romantic of all the signs.
2019 Money Horoscope: With Mercury in retrograde during March this year, remember to double check receipts when making transactions to avoid being charged $350.00 for that flat-white instead of $3.50! As Venus enters Taurus later in the year, expect a switch in your financial priorities. Time to ditch the mindless splurging on shoes and start saving up for that house deposit.
Scorpio Traits: Passionate, determined and resourceful, best describe you, Scorpio. Not to mention stubborn, a trait I’m sure Steve Jobs could vouch for in Scorpio celebrity Bill Gates.
2019 Money Horoscope: In 2019 your stubbornness, I mean determination will really come in handy, Scorpio. This year you’ll excel the most when you direct your energy towards getting more bang for your buck. With a bit of negotiating, you’re likely to land yourself the best possible deals this year, Scorpio. Just don’t hesitate to ask the question, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by rewards to reap in.
Sagittarius Traits: Loved by all for their extroverted personalities and glass-half-full approach to life.
2019 Money Horoscope: Sagittarius, the theme surrounding money for you this year is being optimistic towards new money-making ideas and ventures. With Venus entering Aquarius in March this year, you’ll be more open to potential new investments. This being said, there’s no better time to put your patience (or lack thereof) to the test, by opening a term deposit and waiting for the monetary ‘prize’ at the end of its term. You can work out your expected interest earnings via our Term Deposit Calculator.
Capricorn Traits: ‘Do it with a purpose’ is every Capricorn’s mantra. Lucky for you Capricorn, your disciplined nature has you well prepared for what 2019 has in store.
2019 Money Horoscope: With Venus dropping in to visit Capricorn at both the start and end of this year, this is the time to put your impeccable self-discipline to use and keep on top of your bills, Capricorn. Been cranking up the aircon this summer? Why not do your research and investigate your energy options so you can avoid a whopper of an energy bill this quarter.
Aquarius Traits: Original as they come and often caught with their head in the clouds, there’s no denying an Aquarian when you see one. If you need a better understanding of just how quirky Aquarians are, look up: Ellen Degeneres.
2019 Money Horoscope: With Venus moving into Gemini mid this year, your intuition will be thrusting you towards new and exciting financial opportunities, Aquarius. As the year unfolds further, you’ll become more outward about embracing your own individuality. This combined with your new nose for money means 2019 could be the year you finally ditch your nine-to-five job and turn your side hustle into a full-time gig Aquarius.
Pisces Traits: Pisces, you wise, lovable, artistic, owl you!
2019 Money Horoscope: If the stars are correct, (the stars never lie), you‘ll encounter great financial success in 2019, so long as you follow your intuition. In saying this, while I hate to use the dreaded ‘M-word’, you should know that Mercury Retrograde will be lurking a few times throughout the year. During Mercury Retrograde, both computers and emotions have a tendency to go a little haywire. But worry not Pisces! With a solid budget in place, and these budget and savings apps, you’ll have control over your financial destiny in no time!
