Your horoscope today could read “You will find a good shopping deal today.”
But what if I told you that the likelihood of receiving this horoscope largely depends on your zodiac sign? Many of us read our horoscopes for fun, and some even rely on them for guidance in their day-to-day and bigger-picture aspects of our lives.
The study of astrology is vast, complicated and metamorphic. Over the years, each zodiac sign has become associated with different characteristics. Our star sign makes us more individual, with unique sets of strengths and weaknesses.
Let’s start with Aries (March 21 – April 19). Aries signs love to be the best. They’re ambitious and bold, so of course, this translates into striving to be the smartest shoppers. While some of the wealthy like to flaunt how much money they spend, most of us prefer to brag about a good deal we found.
For Cancers (June 21 – July 22), the deal-finding horoscope looks iffy. Cancer signs have an unmatched ability to live in both material and emotional realms. They may have trouble fighting urges to make impulse buys, as they are trained to think with their hearts as much as their brains.
Leo signs (July 23 – August 22) are not be made to be spendthrifts. The spirited horoscope fire sign, represented by the lion, is all about passion, theatrics, and vivacity. Finding the lowest price on Crest toothpaste doesn’t quite fall under this umbrella.
Scorpios (October 23 – November 21) similarly aren’t predestined to find low prices and shop around. This water sign derives strength from the emotional and psychic realm. It doesn’t derive much from clipping coupons in the Sunday paper.
A thirst for knowledge largely defines the Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21). Whether that means chasing after a spiritual adventure, or in this case, chasing after price markdowns, Sagittarius signs are up for the challenge.
But perhaps the horoscope sign best equipped for finding great deals is the Virgo (August 23 – September 22). The earth sign, with a deep-rooted presence in the material realm, is characterized by being practical and methodical.
Give a Virgo a mission to find the best deal on a spring jacket, and watch the gears turn.
