We studied the zodiac signs of America’s richest self-made women — here’s what we found

Success and being lucky are two things we usually link together. Although hard work and dedication are a must-have for success, we still like to thank our luck for the good fortunes that occur.  

The prominent Forbes magazine has lately gathered a list of the richest self-made women in the USA. We found out their birthdays and zodiac signs to see how astrology can impact the big money game. Here’s what we found.

The most interesting findings

  • Capricorns and Scorpians are the most likely to become rich while Taurus and Aries are the least likely.
  • When it comes to net worth, Capricorns are the best performing at $2.2 billion dollars while Sagittarians are the least rich at $702 million dollars.
  • Taureans are the oldest with an average age of 70 years while Geminis are the youngest with an average age of 53.
  • The tech industry is the most popular field for the richest women to make their fortune and is dominated by Scorpios.
  • California was shown to be the most popular state among the richest women with Virgos as the most common zodiac.

1. Capricorns and Scorpios are the most likely to be rich.

In our study, one’s astrological sign has some bearing on one’s likelihood of achieving wealth. Capricorns and Scorpios, for example, are more likely to become wealthy than any other zodiac sign. This is likely due in part to their hard-working nature and their natural affinity for business. They include the likes of Dolly Parton who has amassed a fortune of $350 million.

On the other hand, Taurus and Aries appear to be the least likely to achieve financial success. This is likely because they are more inclined to live for the moment and less likely to make long-term financial plans. However, it should be noted that anyone can become wealthy, regardless of their astrological sign. With determination and a bit of luck, anyone has the potential to achieve prosperity.

2. Capricorns are the richest of the rich.

Making money is all about hard work, but we can’t deny that luck does play a role, and looking at the top zodiac signs for the richest women in the US, we found a striking example. Capricorn took the lead with a whopping $2.2 billion, closely followed by Leo at $2.1 billion, with only Libra and Scorpio signs breaking past $1 billion. Interestingly, all four of these signs are known for their determination and ambition, explaining why they’re so successful.

These are the richest self-made women for each zodiac sign:

  • Diane Hendricks ($11B) – Capricorn
  • Judy Faulkner ($6.5B) – Leo
  • Judy Love ($5.2B) – Libra
  • Thai Lee ($4.1B) – Scorpio
  • Doris Fischer ($2.9B) – Virgo
  • Alice Schwartz ($2.9B) – Cancer
  • Oprah Winfrey ($2.7B) – Aquarius
  • Elaine Wynn ($2.2B) – Taurus
  • Rihanna ($1.7B) – Pisces
  • Jayshree Ullal ($1.7B) – Aries
  • Safra Catz ($1.6B) – Sagittarius
  • Tory Burch ($900M) – Gemini

3. Geminis are the youngest moneymakers while Taureans are the oldest.

We measured the average age for each zodiac sign and found that the average ages range between 53 and 70. While the oldest age of 70 belongs to Taurus, and the youngest age of 53 is for Gemini.  Among the most known Taureans is Barbra Streisand at the age of 79.

Geminis are the best at financial planning, and they always have a plan B ready just in case things don’t go as planned. Geminis are also very good at networking, and they always seem to know the right people. They always have their finger on the pulse, being up to date with the latest trends. They are very resourceful and seem to find a way to get what they want.

4. The most popular industry is tech and is dominated by Scorpios.

Now that we know how much each zodiac sign makes, we should know how they make it. Not surprisingly, the tech industry is at the absolute top as the highest-earning field and is where 25% of the richest women made their fortune. Other popular fields were cosmetics, fashion, and finance. 

It’s no surprise then that the most popular industry for Scorpios is tech. This industry is all about innovation, creativity, and forward-thinking. Scorpios are natural problem-solvers and are always looking for ways to improve things. They’re also excellent at quickly adapting to change and embracing new technologies.

So if you’re a Scorpio in tech, you’re in good company! You’re probably ambitious, driven, and always looking for ways to improve things.

5. Most wealthy women live in California and are Virgos.

The stars like to live next to each other, so they chose California, the birthplace of Hollywood, as their most popular state of residence. 45% of the richest women in the USA live in California; the following most popular states are New York, Nevada, and Texas accordingly.

Virgos tend to be health-conscious and are often active in philanthropy. Virgo women are often well-educated and successful in their careers. They typically maintain a healthy lifestyle and take good care of themselves, so seeing them flock to California is no surprise. Among these Virgos in California is tech business executive Sheryl Sandberg with a net worth of $1.9 billion and musician Beyoncé Knowles with $440 million.
