Forbes has revealed its latest top 100 Billionarries for 2020, and it is clear that air signs dominate this list! When scrutinizing the statistics, air sign Libra came in the first place, with earth sign Taurus second and air sign Gemini third. Out of the top three zodiac signs on the Forbes list, air signs make up two, and all the air signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius) are in the top six. Earth signs rank second, with water signs coming in third and fire signs taking the last place.
All the signs of the zodiac have their strengths and weaknesses; however, it does appear that one of the strengths air signs possess is becoming wealthy. Air signs billionaires seem to have mastered the formula and recipe for financial success.
Last year, when analyzing the statistics, Capricorn governed the list. Capricorn’s can be so dedicated to working, duty, and climbing the career ladder, it makes sense that they dominated the list for a while. This year, the innovative ideas that air signs can bring to the world, especially the socially graceful sign of Libra that is boasting seventeen billionaires out of 100, replaced the value of hard work and duty that Capricorn bought to the table.
2020 Capricorn, an earth sign, has dived to second last on the list, with only five Billionaires being born to this sign out of the top 100. Capricorns do possess the passion drive and dedication to become rich, but they do lack the ability to think and step out of the box in situations. Remaining stuck in their comfort zone, or sticking to the rules is detrimental to their prospects of expanding their current empires. Air signs do have a stronger ability to step out of the norm and take risks, and not be hesitant to do so. With the fast-paced evolution of technology taking over the world, times are changing, and the value that air signs can bring to the world through their inventive and innovative way of thinking is increasing.
Taurus, also an earth sign, comes second on the list, and it is to no surprise. This consistent, stable, and dedicated earth sign habitually has the drive to be successful along with the creative talent, thanks to their ruling planet, Venus! In astrology, Taurus is the sign that rules over material resources, so they do naturally attract money and abundance to themselves.
Fire and water signs do not rank very high, and there are no fire or water signs in the top three rated signs. Fire signs can be too irrational and impulsive to save their money. They can spend it as soon as they make it, and they do not think things through and make spur of the moment decisions that can cause losses. Sagittarius ranks the lowest out of all, with only three billionaires out of the 100. Sagittarians make too many empty promises that lead to nothing, and they have unrealistic expectations. Water signs can let their emotions get the better of them and this causes them never actually to get the job done.
The industries dominated by the elements
Air signs don’t appear to have the upper hand in any specific sector. They succeed in the finance sector, where they can apply new ideas and methods to achieve better results and turnovers. There are no air sign billionaires in the auto industry as this field does require more practical and structural thought processes, which is a trait that air signs can lack.
Earth signs seem to know their way around the technology sector, as well as finance, food and beverage, and commodities. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, who currently holds the 1st place on the Forbes list, is a Capricorn. Warren Buffet, the founder of Berkshire Hathaway Inc, ranking 4th, is a Virgo, and Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, who ranks 5th, is a Taurus. The fashion sector is where earth signs come short, as earth signs prefer to focus on complex tasks that require concentration, calculation, and procedures as opposed to concentrating on aesthetics. Industries that rely on out of the box thinking and creativity is not an earth signs forte.
Fire signs are absent in the food and beverage sector, understandably as this is a sector governed by earth signs who have a knack for knowing how to work with the resources provided by the earth. Fire signs seem to thrive in the technology sector, as well as finance and commodities. They lead in the fashion sector, as they are immensely creative and passionate about their clothing and appearances, and it is to no surprise as Amancio Ortega, founder of Zara clothing, who ranks 6th on the list, is an Aries.
Water signs do not dominate any list. They have a stable presence in all sectors, with technology and real estate being the highest. Bill gates, the founder of windows, who is a Scorpio, currently ranks second. Water signs also do well in the industry of fashion and beauty.
The technology sector is the most impacted by all the elements. Most billionaires who dominate the Forbes list achieved their riches through the technology and finance sector. With the fast and continual evolution of technology, this is the sector that is booming right now.
Top 10 of the top 100 richest people in the world through the lens of astrology
The top 10 Billionaires all have one thing in common, and this is that they share certain aspects in their astrological chart. The aspects that can influence a person to become successful are known as *super aspects, planetary synchronizations (Stelliums), and bidirectional quincunxes. A “really good at life” person might have a super aspect or two, but not a bidirectional quincunx or planetary synchronization along with it. The “great ones” should have multiple combinations and two- or three-out-of-three of the aspects.
There is an identifiable pattern where each of the billionaires has at least two out of the three markers. Jeff Bezos, who holds the number one spot, and Bernard Arnault, who takes second place, have all three influences of super aspects, bidirectional quincunx, and super aspects in their chart.
These are the connections between planets that enhance an individual’s chances of attaining wealth and fame. All aspects of astrology are essential; however, some carry more weight than others. Super aspects are known to be extraordinarily powerful, and they have a significant effect on the chances of a person attaining wealth or not. The more super aspects a person has, the more power they hold, and the bigger their chances of success.
This is an astrological aspect often found in the charts of the most successful individuals. A bidirectional Quincunx is when there is a quincunx between two planets (150 degrees apart), and one of the two planets is in retrograde. This aspect is known to be a rare aspect.
Planetary Synchronization occurs when three planets are close to the same degree of any of the 12 zodiac signs, showing the possibility of extreme success. This aspect is called a stellium. When this happens, the person has a lot of energy and focus aimed at one area of their life, and this can lead to success.
