According to the latest data, only about 19 percent of Americans are satisfied with their current salary.

Zodiac Signs That Are Best with Money
Okay, do you know your sign? Great! Now, it’s time to figure out how your sign influences your earning potential and financial habits:
When they’re doing work that they find meaningful and enjoyable, people born under the Aquarius sign are hard, dedicated workers. They’re also very generous and charitable.
People born under Pisces aren’t the most practical, and they may have trouble saving money and avoiding unnecessary purchases. They can often be unrealistic about their financial situation, too.
Aries are not motivated by money the way other signs are, so they may choose jobs that pay less, or they may jump from job to job. Aries tend to have a hard time-saving money, too.
Folks born under Taura are naturally hard workers and are usually very high earners. They’re steadfast, reliable, and good at saving money. At the same time, they don’t mind treating themselves, either.
Geminis often have trouble saving money. They’re prone to impulsiveness, and that includes impulsiveness with their spending habits. They tend to worry about money less than other signs, though.
Cancers are hard workers who usually have little trouble saving for the future. They’re one of the best at building a nest egg and establishing financial security for themselves and their families.
Leos have a test for luxury and definitely can have issues with spending impulsively. At the same time, though, they also are highly competitive. This competitive drive can help them to become high earners, which makes it easier to support their spending habits.
Virgos are often driven more by values and principles than by money. They may be more inclined to turn to lower-paying jobs as a result. They have great budgeting skills, though, and can make any salary work.
Libras are all about balance. They do love to treat themselves from time to time, though. They may have a hard time making financial decisions, too.
Scorpios are highly competitive. Like Leos, this can help them to separate themselves from the pack and become high earners in any field. Scorpios also have great instincts and make shrewd investors.
People born under the Sagittarius sign often love to gamble and take risks. While they’re often lucky, these risks don’t always work out in their favor. Sagittarius may have difficulty saving money, too.
Capricorns are ambitious, hard workers who usually don’t have trouble earning money and putting it aside for the future. They’re also quite practical and are unlikely to blow money on frivolous purchases.
Earning and Spending Tips for All Signs
Remember, the traits associated with your sign are not your destiny. Even if you were born under a sign that is “bad with money,” you can still improve and start earning and saving more.
Here are some tips to help you get started:
As an Aquarius, you love disrupting the status quo and challenging the system. Look for jobs that allow you to do this, and invest in other companies that are shaking things up.
Look for careers that allow you to use your creativity. At the same time, make sure you have safeguards in place to protect your earnings and grow your wealth.
Stay away from high-risk, get-rich-quick schemes. Look for a job that satisfies your impulsive nature and requires lots of quick decision-making.
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone from time to time. You may be naturally risk-averse, but sometimes the risk is worth the reward.
It’s best for Geminis to have multiple streams of income. This allows them to change their focus from time to time without totally sacrificing their financial security.
Look into practical investments like real estate. This will allow you to expand your income in a secure way and set aside more for those you love.
Look for careers that allow you to earn money while following creative pursuits — this is where you’ll shine the brightest. Focus on saving up for big purchases instead of buying them impulsively.
Try to find a career that fits with your specific values. Put your keen budgeting skills to the test and use your research skills to choose investments that are most likely to grow your wealth.
Libras are great partners. Look for a financial advisor to work with who will help you get control over your spending habits.
As a Scorpio, you probably have a significant emergency fund stashed away. Keep adding to that fund and keep looking for new, interesting ways to bring in money.
Sagittariuses do well in positions that give them lots of freedom, especially freedom to travel. Use the money you earn from this new position to build up a nest egg for yourself.
Keep working hard and look for a position that allows you to use your natural leadership skills. Do your best to avoid splurging on unnecessary items, no matter how alluring they might be.
