I wanted to “JAZZ” up my blog post with some fun!
When you are looking at buying a home your zodiac sign might not be the first thing you think about. Funnily enough, however, many astrologers will tell you that there is a huge link between astrological signs and property and with that in mind it pays to pay attention to your Sun sign when you are trying to find the perfect home.
Many people say that they are not believers in astrology, but many of us still read our horoscopes religiously even though we say this is just for fun. If that is the case for you, then why not think about asking the universe for a little cosmic help as you set off on the journey to finding your forever home? After all, buying a house is one of the most stressful things that you can ever do, so anything to help lighten the load is a great bonus.
If you are buying a property and feel like you could use a little celestial guidance, then have a look at this quick and easy guide which will tell you how to pair your stars with the right strategy that will see you moving into your perfect home with ease.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
Aries is one of the most competitive buyers out there and when they find a home they love they won’t let it go. This is also a sign of action and Aries buyers may want to sign papers and move in right away. They are so competitive that they may get into a bidding war with another buyer and are likely to be attracted to open plan spaces that give them a sense of space to move around in. Loft-style spaces work well for Aries buyers and as Aries is ruled by Fire they will also love anywhere with a big fireplace or even a fire pit in the garden- anywhere they can see flames. Aries is also a very physical sign so any place that comes with a gym or is close to a fitness area like a park will be a great choice.
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
Those born under the sign of Taurus love luxury but they also love a good bargain. Taurus is a sign obsessed with finances and as such they will want to feel like they are getting good value as a buyer. Even though they are thrifty they will also look at ways to get the most for their money and they like a feeling of security from a home. Most Bulls will buy property with a view to settling down and this means that the buying process may take a little longer for them than some other signs. Bulls are known for being very patient however and won’t be impulsive when making a purchase. They will not appreciate being rushed into making a decision and can be stubborn if they feel they are being pushed.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
Gemini is a restless Air sign and people born under the sign of the Twins need to feel stimulated in all that they do. Many Gemini people tend to have more than one home and may have a property portfolio that includes several apartments instead of houses. Gemini buyers may also find that they prefer to live in the city instead of out in the country as they want to be in the center of everything where they have access to a busy social scene. One of the issues for Gemini is that they have lots of ideas but they also get distracted easily and may find it difficult to commit to one project at a time. This means that they would do better to avoid buying a fixer-upper and should instead opt for something that is ready to move into straight away. This will save Gemini a lot of time and money in the long run.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Cancer is one of the most nurturing signs so with that in mind they are super focused on family and their home life. They tend to prefer homes with lots of communal space where they can spend time with loved ones and a big kitchen is also perfect for Cancer as they can host family gatherings and cook big meals for those around them. Those born under the sign of the Crab can also be nostalgic and they tend to hang on to possessions and keep them as mementos so a home with lots of closet space is also a big plus. Cancer is a Water sign and like all signs with a water element, they are highly intuitive so they may pick a home based on their feelings rather than practical concerns. Once they find their dream home they will just ‘know’ that it’s the right place for them.
Leo (July 23-August 22):
Leo is the sign of the Lion and these big cats love luxury. They want the biggest mansion and the best that money can buy so their surroundings are often opulent and extremely grand. They also need to feel stimulated at home so it is a good idea for them to look for homes with play areas or spots where they can do activities such as a games room. Leo is one of the signs that are likely to pay over their budget if they find a home that they absolutely love but they need to make sure that they can actually afford it before they get carried away and commit.
Virgo (August 23-September 22):
Virgo is one of the most practical signs and they love efficiency and order. As such, they usually prefer minimalist approaches to styling and they want a clean home where nothing looks out of place. Virgo is an Earth sign and this means that they tend towards ‘earthy’ touches to their home which may mean a house made of natural materials like wood or even some energy-saving devices like solar panels fitted on the roof. One of the biggest issues for Virgo is that they can tend to over think a purchase and can be overly critical meaning that they struggle to find a home that measures up to their exact standards. They need to realize that they might not find the perfect home immediately and that they may need to do some work to make a house look exactly as they envisioned it. If they hesitate too long they may miss out on a great property.
Libra (September 23-October 22):
Libra is ruled by Venus which is the planet of beauty and aesthetics. This means that they love to be surrounded by beautiful things and this includes the perfect home. They are also one of the most sociable signs and are very romantic so they will want a property that has a lot of different spaces for entertaining like a large kitchen or a big dining and living area. As Libra is the sign of the Scales they also like a home that looks harmonious to the eye so a wacky design is unlikely to please them and they are usually attracted to classic homes where everything is in its proper place.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
Scorpio is one of the most secretive signs of the zodiac so they love privacy at all costs. Homes that have a lot of private spaces or that are somehow hidden from view behind large fences or towering trees are great picks for those born under the sign of the Scorpion as it will make them feel more secure. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which is the planet of transformation so they love to work on a fixer-upper and turn a house into their dream home. This sign is also somewhat ruthless when it comes to cutting a good deal when they buy a home so you can expect them to be great negotiators.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21):
Anyone who is born under the sign of the Archer is a natural adventurer and a free spirit. This sign is not afraid to do things a little differently when it comes to real estate and they are happy to try different things or think outside the box. Many Sagittarius people may decide to move to an up-and-coming area rather than go for somewhere that is more established and they tend to enjoy places with a bohemian feel to them. They are also not the best negotiators in the world as they tend to be too open and honest so they will need to try and practice their poker face if they truly want to get the best deal around.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19):
Capricorn is a sign obsessed with prestige so they like to live in a ‘good’ area of town that will elevate their social status. To that end, they may end up choosing a smaller property that costs more than a larger one in a different area simply because they want to keep up appearances. This is also a sign associated with patriarchy so they like typical old fashioned homes that are made of brick and designed in a very traditional style. That said, even though they like luxury they are also very practical and won’t usually spend over their budget. Anyone with a Capricorn Sun sign is usually very responsible and as such, they make excellent tenants if they choose to rent a property.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18):
Aquarius is a quirky sign and can come off at times as a bit of a rebel. They love to do things their way even if this is quite different to everyone else. Anything is possible for them when it comes to real estate! They naturally gravitate toward quirky homes that have interesting design features or they may choose to live in a property that is located far away from many other homes. Aquarius is a sign that also likes inventions and technology so any home that has some cutting-edge design elements linked to technology will attract their inquisitive nature.
Pisces (February 19-March 20):
Pisces is probably the most intuitive and sensitive of all the zodiac signs and they choose a home based on their feelings rather than for practical reasons. The problem with this is that they may overlook design flaws or any potential problems with a home simply because they feel that it is their dream house. One of the best pieces of advice for a Pisces buyer is to get a second or even a third opinion on their potential choice of house. This means that they will get some much-needed clarity if they are looking at a property through rose-tinted glasses.
