Your partner is horrible at handling finances, so you finally decide to give them pocket money while you look after the bank account. Do you worry about hurting their feelings or do you just get tough and tell them the truth?
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Grounded in the Real World
Taurus will dig in their heels till they get control of the purse strings. They are security conscious and won’t let anyone upset that. They’ll win the cash battles.
Virgo can be chaotic about finances, but as they mature they get serious about being well organized. They’re happy to take over money matters.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Security-Conscious

Leo spends money like it was going out of style. They need a hard-headed partner to keep them on track, but who also let’s them to think they’re top dog.
