Half Full or Half Empty?

Half Full or Half Empty?
Do you worry about bankruptcy hovering just around the next corner? Or do you blithely assume your guardian angel will fish you out of a cash-tight spot? Your Sun sign can shed light on how you feel about your finances.

The zodiac's biggest worriers over money and security tend to be the Earth signs, as well as certain types of Aquarius. Capricorn starts mapping out its retirement plans just after leaving college; all along, they fear they haven't made enough for next year -- and the next four decades!

Taurus is also highly security-conscious, preferring to build up little nest eggs here and there just to ensure they're never left without life's basic necessities. They can also seem quite ungenerous at times, as they tend to maintain an underlying fear of being bereft.

Virgo tends to worry about everything, so money is just another area of life's uncertainties. Despite their tidy reputation, they can be chaotic about cash.

Aquarians heavily influenced by Saturn can be extremely attached to what's theirs. They dislike the idea of not having status and possessions, so they tend to accumulate rather than live for the day. However, a Uranus-influenced Aquarius will follow the opposite path, rarely giving a second thought to tomorrow.

Aries and Sagittarius are much the same. They happily live hand-to-mouth since they unshakably believe that a safety net will be there for them whenever they most need it. Sagittarius really is the Pollyanna of the financial universe, since they have lucky Jupiter as a ruler. These folks ardently believe they can rely on some kind of break that will fund them until more money arrives.

Oddly enough, Virgo also has that same quality of being able to pull a money-rabbit out of a hat when the going gets tough. They're never overly optimistic, but it seems they do have special powers!

Pisces, sharing Jupiter as a ruler with Sagittarius, also has a lucky streak and a gambler's belief that everything will get better just over the horizon.

Libra indeed loves money and all the indulgences it buys, but they tend to have more enthusiasm than common sense, so cash slides through their fingers at an alarming rate. They assume the good life will always be there for them, and as a result can end up slipping into financial trouble at times.

Leo is a Fire sign, but lacks the overwhelming confidence of its sibling signs, Aries and Sagittarius. Still, Leo believes they deserve riches. After all, money is their birthright, or so they think ....

Gemini tends to be both a pessimist and an optimist, since they're the archetypal split sign: up one day, down the next. But they're intuitive about money and are generally able to recognize which way the financial winds are blowing.

Cancer and Scorpio share a degree of Taurus's insecurity about money, and they tend to hoard as a result. They won't allow themselves to go short, though, because it's so crucially important to them to never be poor.
