Some people are quite materialistic, where they base their worth and lives on how much money they have and how many luxurious items they have. Yet, others are only concerned about having enough money to live comfortably and don’t care about flashy things as long as they function.
For instance, some people want wealth, a large home, luxurious cars, and dine out at expensive restaurants. They also want to travel to exotic places. Some people like to enjoy some indulgences but are happy with living comfortably. Then others are happy to live the minimalist and frugal lifestyle. What influences you on whether or not you are a materialistic person? Your zodiac sign, of course. Let’s rank the zodiac signs from the most materialistic to the least materialistic.
Taurus – Money and Luxury Are Everything
What is a Taurus’ favorite thing to do? They love to shop and spend plenty of money on flashy and luxurious items. They want new expensive shoes and clothes, jewelry, and perfume, or cologne. A Taurus wants to live in a large home and wants to own a Rolls Royce or a BMW, or a Mercedes Benz.
Money is significant to the Taurus because they are naturally materialistic, and this is an earth sign that revolves around having prized and expensive possessions. The same goes for the quality of food. Taurus’ only wants gourmet dishes and desserts.
Leo – Simply Wants the Best Things in Life
Leo wants the best things around and wants to live their lives to the fullest. You may not think of Leo as a materialistic sign. However, they definitely can want those prized luxurious possessions, but for different reasons than Taurus.
Taurus is an earth sign, takes comfort in having those luxurious items. Leo wants to have these expensive and extravagant items to show off. They want others to see them wearing expensive clothes, jewelry, shoes, and so on. Leo wants to go on extravagant vacations because they do not want to miss out on what life can offer.
Aries – Wants to Be the First in Line to Buy New Releases
Aries is the first fire sign which means those with the zodiac sign want to be the first ones to do everything. That also means Aries wants to be the first in line to buy new gadgets and devices, which are very expensive initially. However, Aries does not care and wants to spend the money on that brand new iPhone release, or the new Mac, or the brand-new pair of Nikes. Aries does not concern themselves showing their new luxurious and expensive items off the way Leo does. However, they just want to be the first to buy them because Aries has to come first no matter what.
Pisces – Loves Their Guilty Pleasures
Pisces tend to live in a world of fantasy and dreams, and those with the sign want to indulge in anything that helps them escape from the harsh realities of the world. That is why Pisces is the type to spend their money on manicures, gourmet food, massages, and an expensive getaway so that they can relax.
The issue with Pisces is that they can quickly lose track of the money they spend. That can get them into trouble if they are not careful.
Sagittarius – Spend Money on Travel and Adventures
Sagittarius is adventurous and needs exploration. Therefore, those with the sign do not concern themselves with showing off pricy items. However, Sagittarians can be materialistic when it comes to their travel excursions. They are ready to pay top dollar to go on luxurious cruises and stay at expensive hotels.
Even when it comes to finding adventurous things to do locally, Sagittarians will spend their hard-earned cash to have the experience too.
Gemini – Impulsive Spending at Times
Gemini can be quite unpredictable. They do not have a reputation for living in the most expensive home, having the most expensive clothing, or driving a luxurious car. However, if Gemini sees an item they want to buy, they won’t hesitate to spend the money for it even if they don’t need it.
That is why Gemini, like Pisces, can get into trouble if they spend more than they have. The next thing they will know is that they will need to live on credit if they keep spending impulsively on items, they think they need. Then not long after the purchase, Gemini will forget about it.
Capricorn – Loves Finer Items but Will Keep Their Spending in Check
Capricorn is a stable earth sign, and like Taurus, Capricorn enjoys the finer things in life. Capricorn likes to have a large home, fancy tchotchkes, and statues, and cars. However, there is one significant difference between Taurus and Capricorn. Taurus will shop until they drop – with an overdrawn bank account or credit cards exceeding the credit limit. Capricorn will not.
Saturn is Capricorn’s ruler, which means they know how to remain stable and responsible. If Capricorn does not have the money to buy the expensive or luxurious item they want, they will work very hard and save up for it instead. Then they will treat themselves to it when they have the funds.
Cancer – Home Decorating Shows the Materialistic Side
Cancer, like the opposing sign, Capricorn, is good when it comes to managing money. That is why Cancer won’t spend a crazy amount of money on dining out or traveling. Cancer loves their home, and that is the one place where their materialistic side will arise.
Cancers won’t spend money they don’t have to decorate their homes. However, when they do have the funds, home decoration and renovation is where it will go. They will even spend the money on their kids, buying them high-quality clothing and extracurricular activities.
Aquarius – Humanitarian but Indulges in Unique Items Sometimes
Aquarius is one of the least materialistic signs since it ranks towards the bottom. The well-being of others around them is more important than money. However, once in a while, Aquarius will have the urge to indulge now and then. Most of the time, when Aquarius indulges, they usually buy clothing that creates fashion statements or gadgets.
Aquarius is so unique that they can become bold trendsetters based on their unusual fashion statements. The next thing you know, others follow the footsteps of Aquarius, and they will spend their money on the same kind of clothing as Aquarius.
Scorpio – Occasional Spending
Scorpio, unlike the opposing sign, Taurus, does not care about having luxurious items for the sake of it. You can say that Scorpio lives more of a minimalist lifestyle and saves more than they spend. However, like anyone else, Scorpio once in a while likes to indulge. Scorpio usually spends more money on something they need than something they want.
No one should hesitate when it comes to buying items that they need. However, once in a while, Scorpio likes to enjoy an upgraded version of a necessity. What is the reason for that? No one knows because Scorpios won’t tell you since they are naturally mysterious.
Libra – Dreams About Luxury but Doesn’t Usually Indulge
It may come to you as a surprise that Libra is pretty much at the bottom of this list because beautiful and luxurious Venus rules the sign. However, Venus plays a different role in Libra than it does in Taurus. Taurus is an earth sign which means it has more of a materialistic side, and Venus emphasizes the materialistic side of Taurus.
Libra is an air sign, and Venus expresses itself differently, so Libra is all about socializing and relationships. Venus rules socializing and relationships too. However, Libra does daydream about having a luxurious lifestyle but will rarely live it unless they marry rich.
However, Libra is about balance and will manage their budget even though they will give into self-indulgence once in a while.
Virgo – Minimalistic and The Least Materialistic
Virgo is an earth sign, but it is the least materialistic of all. That is because this is a practical and analytical sign. Therefore, Virgo lives a frugal life and does not see the need to indulge in unnecessary luxurious items. Virgo may prefer to take the bus because owning a car is too expensive.
However, if Virgo needs a car, they will opt for a used but good quality car and only use it when needed. Virgos will clip coupons and look for bargains. Taurus and Virgo are earth signs, so they trine each other. However, there is still a mismatch between them because one ranks at the top of materialism and the other ranks at the bottom.
However, what if you are a Virgo or a Scorpio and live a high lifestyle? What if you are a Taurus, a frugal lifestyle? You know that your sun sign only makes up a fraction of your horoscope. Therefore, if you are a Virgo with a moon in Leo or Taurus, you may prefer living the high life. If you are a Taurus, but your moon is in Scorpio, you will likely watch your dollars more carefully. Your rising sign plays a role too.
Therefore, no matter your sign, it is perfectly fine to indulge sometimes but making a habit can get you into trouble if you don’t have the money. Balance is necessary!
