People who spend too much money unwisely are called spendthrifts, which is an odd word choice since the word thrift is the second part of the word. Photo: KnowInsiders

Are you ever out for dinner with a friend, listening to her list off all of her recent purchases and thinking, “But how can she afford that?” You don’t ask her directly, but you’re also doing the math in your head: what you assume is her salary, minus what you assume is her rent, minus those plane tickets to France and that Sephora shopping spree? Something doesn’t add up. It wasn’t even the annual sale! You’re much more frugal than she is. Your paycheck gets divided between your IRA and your savings account, and you wouldn’t dream of splurging on that trendy vegan ice cream—unless you had a coupon. Why do some of us spend like it’s our last day on earth and some of us are thrifty as hell? As usual, astrology might have some answers.

Here’s our definitive list on the signs that spend the most money:

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are impulsive about everything and that includes spending. If they want something new, they'll get it. They tend not to think things through as thoroughly as they might.

Aries, like every other sign on this list, has their needs and wants to be mixed up. They really do not know whether they need a new bag or want it. They have everything they always wanted so, when you keep buying things that you absolutely do not need, you tend to go over a budget month after month. This is the main reason why they are always stressed at the end of the year when they have to pay for all that they’ve splurged on.

If they think about buying something for too long, it will lose its appeal, so they dare not chance it. Things like budgets, financial plans, and self-imposed allowances are a drag. It's YOLO for them and that includes unlimited spending.

Aries are usually the ones out of all the zodiac signs to save up a large amount of cash, but then they end up spending it freely. However, even with this impulse to spend freely, they are very good at putting a limit on themselves and never allowing their bank accounts to fall below a certain point.

Leos love shopping and they love buying people presents. It doesn't matter if it's nowhere near someone's birthday or holiday; if Leo sees the perfect gift, they're not going to wait and will buy it immediately.

Sometimes that gift-giving spirit extends to their own selves. They don't like to deny themselves, so they live a lavish and luxurious lifestyle. It's a good thing that they're very good at acquiring wealth because their spending habits are often out of control.

Leo tries hard to be careful with their spending, but they often go off the rails with gifts. They love giving great presents to their friends and family, even themselves. Leos don't buy things that are cheap, they always go for something that's on top of the line.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You will always find Pisces going over budget because they are too kind and giving. When somebody asks them for help, they’ll open their hearts and wallets for them. Now, it doesn’t matter if they are saving that money for something important. If they find someone that needs it more, they’ll give all that they have.

Pisces are the type of people who might willingly give their last few earnings to a homeless person, even if it means they'll have to do without money for a few days. Pisces are selfless and they always put others first, even if it makes no sense financially. They always donate to charity and give money to the needy. Their favorite thing about money is what it can do to help people.

If someone asks Pisces to invest in a pyramid scheme or their company, they will feel guilted into investing. They're just too kind and naive.

Pisces know that life is difficult, and sometimes the easiest fix for a bad day is some retail therapy. Like Libra, Pisces’s finance sector is also ruled by fiery Mars. Pisces are enthusiastic about both their values and their belongings, and if they aren’t careful, they can literally burn through their entire savings account without notice. Because Pisces are also mutable people who like to switch things up often, the investments they make one week may not make sense the next. That expensive rowing machine? Well, it seemed like a good idea...

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Money isn't on the top of Sagittarius' list of concerns. They use it until it runs out and then they'll get some more. They spend lavishly on things like airplane tickets, hotels, and fancy meals.

The problem is that they don't keep track of their spending and sometimes need to find ways to replenish their funds fast or suffer the consequences. Sagittarius isn't into possessions as much as they're into experiences, and much of the time their travel expenses aren't on the cheap side.

You can always expect a Sagi to be optimistic but when it comes to being a realist, they almost never fit the bill. They are sometimes too hard on themselves and just because everyone is budgeting, they do it too. However, their budget and expenses never go hand in hand so, with the tight budget and their unrealistic expectations from life, Sagis always end up in going overboard.

Sagittarians are very hard-working, and so, getting money isn't very difficult for them. It's hanging on to it that's the main issue. They won't think twice before doing something fun and adventurous if they feel like it. They are the kind of people who'd rather have experience than huge bank accounts.

5. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Unless Gemini has a very important reason to save, they're going to spend way too much money. They also fall prey to impulse buys, are very generous in giving to charities, and they like to have beautiful things and have fun.

Geminis like to enjoy all the finer trappings of life, and if they cost money, Gemini's happiness is worth it. However, after a spending spree, Gemini's more responsible side will probably have regrets and will want to return some items.

Gemini’s dual personality moods take away everything including their budget. They are super moody, so even if they have a budget in their head, they tend to go over it when they get busy. Geminis also tend to forget that they even have something called a budget. But, what they need to be reminded of their budget instead on all the ways to be financially responsible.

Gemini is two-sided when it comes to money. They will be responsible, have a great job, put money away for the future, while also gamble when they're in the mood. They'll want to gamble to make some more money, take chances that a long-shot will pay off big and ultimately lose their money in the process.
