These Zodiac Signs Are Most Likely To Have Expensive Taste, But Be Broke AF

Today, we’re talking about the zodiac signs most likely to have expensive taste, but be broke. In Signs Of The Times, Her Campus gets all of the dirty details about the signs directly from astrologers. Today, astrologer Linda Furiate shares which three signs are most likely to have expensive taste, yet be broke AF.

“Now I like dollars, I like diamonds, I like stunting, I like shining.” At least, I would if I could afford any of that. While my tastes are extravagantly high, my budget is so low it’s basically in the negatives. I find ways to make it work, though. After all, what’s life without joy? Why bother paying my rent if I can’t fill my closet with the merch that Taylor Swift drops every other week? 

And I know I’m not alone; we all have to find ways to live, laugh, love under these conditions, but some zodiac signs are just naturally more likely to have expensive taste while being broke. If you’re one of those star signs, it may or may not make you feel better to know that your impulsive taste for high-end shopping trips isn’t something you can exactly control. So if you find yourself mourning your credit card statements at the end of the month or choosing a new cell phone instead of purchasing a copy of the textbook you need for class, you may have a better excuse than others. Money’s no object when it comes to the thing that you desire… until it is.

Read on for the three zodiac signs most likely to have to deal with having expensive taste while being perpetually broke.  


This “material girl” grabs the pleasures of life by the horns and takes off running. “Anything related to touch, sensation, and decadence is a must-have for this stubborn bull,” astrologer Linda Furiate tells Her Campus. Both a Taurus’s desire and ability to earn their wealth is undeniably linked to their feelings of self-worth. “The more worthy a Taurus feels, the more they want to reward themselves with materialism,” she says. Funnily enough, their self-loathing may also lead them to splurge on pricy products to increase their feelings of self-worth. They’re big spenders no matter what’s going on.  


The archer is shooting for the stars. “Known for their desire to reach beyond, to acquire more knowledge, more wisdom, and more stuff is a form of growth for Sagittarius,” Furiate says. Their fire for life burns brighter the more they collect, be it knowledge or material possessions. The more the space surrounding them is filled, the happier they are. “Sag feels an internal need to have a lot of novel toys and cash-consuming activities to occupy the mind,” she says. But it’s easy for them to take their spending spree too far. 


Impulsivity is strong in Aries, and they’re nothing if they don’t have a leg up on those they surround themselves with. “They must have all the latest in fashion and technology first,” Furiate says. “An Aries saying they did it first is a great boost to the ego and soul.” Just call them the OG hipster; they don’t even necessarily want what they’re after, but they’re going to find a way to get it anyway. As long as they can say they beat everyone else to it, that’s what’s important.
