If you’re like millions of Americans, you probably got that sweet, sweet stimulus check in the last few weeks. If you haven’t gotten one yet, don’t stress – it’s coming soon. Some of our zodiac friends are pretty bad at spending money, though, so if you’re one of these 5 signs, you may have already blown your check.
Plus, keep reading for what we think you should be spending it on instead.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Notoriously terrible with money, if you’re a Sagittarius, you probably spent the stimulus check even before you actually got it deposited. What’s a little bit of credit card debt between friends, anyway?
It’s not that you’re not hard-working, but you’ve got no problem spending it as soon as you get it. Hopefully, you got a good deal on whatever you blew it on.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you’re the type of person to give your last dollar to someone who needed it more than you. That’s a great trait, and people admire you for it. It’s also probably the reason you don’t have anything left of your stimulus check, let’s be honest.
I can see you donating your check to Direct Relief, your local food bank, or sending a pallet of pet food to your local shelter. If you’ve got anything left over, consider treating yourself, Pisces. You deserve it.
Aquarius (January 2o – February 18)
I know your weakness, Aquarius… it’s new tech. And you’re going stir crazy indoors, to begin with, so what’s better than to soften that blow a little with a new phone, a brand new laptop, or a piece of hardware for your PC?
You can justify it all you want, but we know your stimulus money went directly to upgrades.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’re not so much about treating yourself, Leo, though you do like nice things. You’re all about treating others. There’s a good chance you spent your stimulus check on gifts for Mom for Mother’s Day, or special surprises for close friends and family struggling with the lockdown and social distancing orders.
It’s great you’re so kind, but you don’t need to go overboard here… people just want to know you’re thinking of them.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You also tend to overspend on others, Libra, just like our previous Leo. But this isn’t because you’re kind and caring (which you are, don’t get me wrong). It’s because you have a deep, driving need to be liked. You think that the best way to do that is to spend all your cash on others… but they like you for you, Libra.
What Should I Be Spending My Stimulus Check On?
If you’re not one of our signs above and you haven’t blown all your cash, we’ve got some suggestions on how to spend your money.
This is the perfect time to invest in a deeper understanding of astrology, and strengthen your connection to the universe. I recommend looking into healing crystals for any anxiety you might be feeling right now with all the changes in the world – amazonite, black jasper, and lepidolite are all great choices.
If you don’t have a trusty pack of tarot cards at your disposal, this is a good time to invest in a set that you feel close to. Look for ones that have artwork that speaks to you, or a good starter set with a comprehensive guide.
Ultimately, the US government sent this money out to be spent in businesses and stimulate the economy. I recommend checking out local shops and stores that could use your support – find a local bookstore that has curbside pickup or delivery, and order some astrological books from there. Or get a gift card to a locally owned restaurant or coffee shop, for when the lockdown is lifted.
Stay safe out there, star lovers, and spend smart!
