Outliers. Trail-blazers. Risk takers. Billionaires are well-known for their drive, competitive spirit, and desire to shatter the status quo. Is ingenuity all to blame? Intelligence? Bravery? And does luck come into play? There isn't one unique quality that distinguishes billionaires from regular people.
However, one trait that is rarely investigated is a person's astrological sign. Could your zodiac sign come into play when it comes to business and finance?
Which Sign Conquers The Billionaire List?
With 32 billionaires, Libra is the most-represented astrological sign. Following Libras are Pisces with 29, Tauruses with 27, Leos with 24, and Aries with 22.
Known for their compassion and empathetic nature, Libras are among the most charming and well-balanced zodiac signs. That puts them in a prime position to succeed as entrepreneurs and dynamic thinkers.
Ranked top of the list of Libra billionaires is Alice Walton — heir to the Walmart fortune — with an estimated net worth of $65.3 billion. Although she ranks 18th overall, she is the second richest woman in the world. Libra's balanced sensibility makes them likable leaders because they possess fair-minded people skills, evidenced in Walton's success.
Other top-earning Libras include Dieter Schwarz ($47.1 billion), Beate Heister ($36.8), Jacqueline Mars ($31.7), He Xiangjian ($28.3), and Miriam Adelson ($27.5).
What About Pisces?
Pisces are known for their creative and passionate qualities. They often find success and satisfaction in working closely with others, which is one of the reasons why 29 Pisces land on this list of billionaires.
In fact, the third richest man is a Pisces. French entrepreneur Bernard Arnault — the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive of the world's largest luxury goods company LVMH, which includes Louis Vuitton and Sephora — has an estimated net worth of $158 billion.
Michael Dell — the founder, chairman, and CEO of Dell — is also a high-ranking Pisces billionaire with a net worth totaling $55.1 billion. Other successful Pisces include Phil Knight ($47.3 billion), Robin Zeng ($44.8), Rodolphe Saadé ($41.4), Lee Shau Kee ($32.6), and Sam Bankman-Fried ($24 billion).
Don't Count Out Tauruses and Leos
Tauruses and Leos claim the third and fourth place spots for most-represented zodiac signs on the Forbes billionaires list.
The symbol of the bull, a Taurus, is known to be intelligent, dependable, hardworking, and dedicated. Twenty-seven billionaires on this list are Tauruses, including Mark Zuckerberg. The founder of social media gamechanger, Facebook and Meta, is the 15th wealthiest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $67.3 billion, an impressive feat for anyone, but even more amazing since Zuckerberg is only 38 years old.
Jim Simons ($28.6 billion), Dietrich Mateschitz ($27.4), Susanne Klatten ($24.3), Cyrus Poonawalla ($24.3), and R. Budi Hartono ($23.2 billion) are the other high-earning Taurus billionaires.
Leos are the natural leaders of the zodiac, being ambitious and confident. It's no surprise that Leos, including Google's co-founder Sergey Brin, represent 24 of the names on this list. Claiming the seventh position as the richest billionaire, Brin has a net worth of $107 billion.
Also on the Leos list are Larry Ellison ($106 billion), François Pinault ($40.4), Li Ka-Shing ($34.8), Qin Yinglin ($24.1), and Guillaume Pousaz ($23 billion). Ellison is notable for co-founding Oracle while also maintaining a 98% stake in the Hawaiian island Lanai.
Pinault made his fortune a different way: founding both Artemis, an investment holding company, and Kering, a luxury group that owns such high-profile brands as Balenciaga, Gucci, and Yves Saint Laurent.
Who Are The Richest People?
Despite the majority of the billionaires being Libra, Pisces, Taurus, and Leo, the top two spots on the Forbes list are occupied by a Cancer and a Capricorn.
It's a rare day in the media when Elon Musk isn't making headlines. He is the founder, CEO, and chief engineer of SpaceX, as well as the CEO of Tesla. A few months ago, he even bought Twitter. He is the richest man in the world. He's also a Cancer. Cancers are known for their sensitivity and compassion as much as their fun and fanciful sense of humor. This wealthy Cancer has an estimated $219 billion fortune.
Although Capricorn might be the least successful star sign, with only 15 billionaires on the list, that hasn't stopped Jeff Bezos from becoming the second richest man in the world, boasting a net worth of $171 billion.
While not everyone may know who Jeff Bezos is, they definitely use his service – probably daily. As the founder and executive chairman of Amazon, Bezos rewrote the script for getting goods delivered. While Amazon may have started with books, it now provides everything, including a successful streaming platform.
Ultimately, the Forbes list of billionaires shows us that all zodiac signs are represented. Any entrepreneur with dedication and a vision might have what it takes to be the next great billionaire.
