I love learning, writing, and sharing articles about astrology.
Money makes the world go around, even if it doesn’t buy happiness or love. Even so, what does astrology have to say about money and our ability to make money? There are some factors that indicate mega-money making skills and potential. Especially with planets, zodiac signs, houses, and other factors. Even so here is a quick guide to money and astrology.
Money-Making Through the Four Elements
- Fire signs (which are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) naturally have the energy, passion, and drive to go after what they want and make money for it. They can make money through fast-paced, aggressive careers and ventures such as wall-street stockbrokers, police officers,
- Earth signs (which are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are logical, practical, and have an eye for business. They are reasonable and very grounded. They can make money through practical and established careers and ventures such as teaching, health fields (nursing and finance), and other stable career paths and ventures.
- Air signs (which are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are smart, inventive, and intellectual with good communication skills. They can make money through intellectual, communicative pursuits such as inventions/patents, philanthropy, technology, and writing.
- Water signs (which are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) are intuitive, emotional, and naturally artistic. They can use their intuition to make money. They can give people what they want without them saying anything at all. They can make money through intuitive and instinctual careers and ventures such as therapists, artists, healers, shamans, and religious leaders.
Be mindful that no matter what your element is, you can do whatever you put your heart and mind to. Remember, astrology isn’t just about your element or sun sign.
Money-Making by Planets
Planets can also affect your ability to make money. The top planets to look at for money-making abilities (in your favor, of course!!) are Jupiter and Saturn, especially Jupiter. These planets work well when they are prominent in your chart and rule over money/career-related houses (such as the first house, the second house, the sixth house, the eighth house, and the tenth house). Even so, a breakdown of the planets and houses. And also the trends and inclinations of each.
Jupiter as a planet rules over luck, optimism, bounty, and expansion. This very good and bountiful planet (it is known as the great malefic planet) expands whatever it touches. Actions such as suddenly winning the lottery, finding out your long-lost father is a billionaire, or you creating your own way can be a key to big bucks. It is good, especially if you have planets in Sagittarius (which is ruled by Jupiter), or Jupiter pleasure aspect your planets or houses.
Saturn, as a planet, rules through hard work and discipline. Saturn is not traditionally seen as a beneficial planet (it is seen as a malefic planet in astrology). The planet Saturn they are many personal and professional difficulties with this planet, and this planet doesn’t receive things as easily, quickly, or effortlessly like Jupiter. Even so, Saturn knows the value of discipline and hard, laborious work. Saturn does not run away from hard work and can use the obstacles and challenges as motivations to be successful. Success is a guarantee for them because the people that are often hard-working are truly successful. If you have planets in Capricorn (which is ruled by Saturn), or Saturn pleasure aspect in your planets or houses.
Other Money-Making Planets
Other breakdowns of planets and the trends toward money include Venus and Mercury. Venus and Mercury are also planets to look for in order to rake in some serious cash.
Venus, as a planet, rules over popularity and beauty. Those influenced by Venus can literally stand pretty and suddenly gain money. A lot of actors and models are discovered in the streets and are suddenly prompted into a world that appreciates and admires beauty. They usually a lot have a natural artistic talent. So people with Libra and Taurus (which is ruled by Venus) prominent in their charts or Venus pleasurably aspecting your planets or houses, can see some serious dough.
Mercury, as a planet, rules over communication (written, visual, non-verbal). Also, mercury is a smart, quick planet that is considered very smart. Knowledge is power, and although mercury is considered a lower octave of Jupiter, Mercury uses what it knows, learns quickly, and can use this knowledge to make money. People with Virgo or Gemini (which is ruled by Mercury) or Mercury prominent in your chart.
Non-Traditional Planets as Sources of Money
Pluto is a planet that rules over destruction and transformation, so they get money through inheritances, wills, and other factors that are related to death and transformation. Traditionally it isn’t a very money-making planet, but it has the potential for life-changing events. Such as the death of a long-lost uncle or father who was very rich and left money to you. People with Scorpio (which is ruled by Pluto) or Scorpio prominent in your chart, can experience this.
Uranus is strangely futuristic and intuitive (in a non-emotional way). Money goes through them quickly and suddenly through novel ideas and circumstances. Suddenly inventing something that sells quickly and takes off. It is usually in technology, scientific inventions, fields, and situations. People with planets in Aquarius (which is ruled by Mercury) or Uranus prominent in your chart can experience this too!!
Money-Making by Houses
The tenth house is your career house (your mid-heaven/MC). This is the highest point in your natal chart and is a very public house. The first house is your house of self and appearance. Your appearance and outer persona can make money for you.
The sixth house is your house of work ethics and health habits. Meaning hard work equals money. The second house is your house of possessions and what you value in life. The eighth house is your house of death, transformation, and shared resources. If you any of the planets in pleasurable aspects or positions in any of these houses can show where you can make or inherit money.
Money-Making Through Aspects
Lastly, you must think of aspects in your natal chart. You can also have pleasurable aspects (such as a sextile, a trine, etc.) that aspects your planets and houses. These aspects give you a pleasurable, favorable boost and can be seen as a natural gift, talent, or luck. It is pretty much easy energy that bends and works well in your chart. One thing to think about is that these aspects can be taken for granted and not honored or used right. An example is spoiled brats that take everything they have for granted or the people that don’t live up to their potential or talent.
This may seem like a contradiction but some people with challenging aspects (such as oppositions and squares) can work against these difficult aspects and energies to make something of themselves. These are your rags to riches stories, self-made types of people that use their adversity as a boost and motivation, not an obstacle. They usually gain confidence and faith through hardship and hard work (very much like Saturn/Capricorn energies).
Even so, this is the basics of astrology and the potential to make money. Run your birth chart and let me know what factors you have.

@jason jack: i am not a trained astrologer. Even so, I would say this, look where Mercury and Jupiter is in your natal chart. Also look at your 2nd, 6th, 8th, and 10th house. Off the bat your Gemini Jupiter is in the 6th, which could mean you can create expansive opportunities in your work-space and for yourself in a Gemini/Mercurial way (through communication and technology aka writing, etc.) Anyway the best advice is hard work, dedication and creating opportunities for yourself.

Could you please tell me where I would be best at making money? I have Gemini Jupiter (conjunct moon, trine neptune, opposite mars) and Taurus Saturn conjunct in the 9th house, no planets in the 1st, 2nd, 8th, or 10th house, a badly afflicted Pisces sun in the 6th (sun square moon, mars, jupiter, and pluto) Aries Venus in the 7th ( sextile moon, mercury, and uranus, trine mars and pluto) Aquarius Mercury in the 5th (conjunct uranus and neptune, trine moon, sextile pluto)
