We all have that one generous friend who would do anything for the ones they love. Or maybe we are that friend. Have you ever wondered which zodiac signs are more generous and which ones are the most stingy? Well, today we are ranking the signs from most to least generous. Or least to most stingy depending on how you view the world. Which signs are more likely to have the most open hearts and the most open wallets?
And yes, for those wondering, this was an incredibly hard list to write.
The moon-child gets the honor of being the most generous sign in the zodiac. Cancerians may get a reputation for being crabby, but they are also the quintessential mom friends. They are compassionate, empathetic, and will do anything to make sure their friends feel emotionally and financially secure. They just want their loved ones to feel safe.
Libras are known for their dedication to peace and justice, but they are also known for their sociable and generous spirit. Sometimes they are even over-generous. The only reason they are second on the list is that they tend to play devil’s advocate a bit too much. It can be hard to be magnanimous when you waffle on who you should extend your generosity to.
Aquarians are revolutionaries who are dedicated to justice and equality. They are the ones who will volunteer and donate to worthy causes. But they come in third on the list because they tend to be a bit standoffish when it comes to interacting with their fellow man. Plus, Aquarius is a fixed sign and most fixed signs like to fix things for their loved ones.
Pisces are just as empathetic as Cancer. And they are always ready to give money when they can. They are the quintessential people-pleasers. However, they are a bit lower on the list because they tend to people-please to make themselves feel better rather than the ones they are helping.
Sagittarius and Pisces share a ruling planet, so they are going to be close to each other on this list. As a whole, Sagittarians are high-minded and well-read individuals. And because of that they are known to be quite altruistic. They are always happy to donate to charities. However, because of their self-aggrandizing nature, I had to put them a bit lower on the list.
Like Cancerians, Taureans have garnered a reputation for being wonderful “mom friends.” Like most fixed signs, they want their loved ones to feel safe and secure. However, they know that they have to take care of themselves before bending over backward for others. They can’t pour from an empty cup.
It may be hard to believe, but bombastic Leos are actually quite warm-hearted and generous. They may naturally steal the spotlight, but they are always happy to share it as well. That being said, the fixed fire sign will almost always put themselves first and their loved ones second. Though sometimes it’s a close second.
We all know that Virgos are more than happy to help anyone in need. However, due to their loyalty, they are more likely to help those whom they are close to. They also tend to be a bit too critical of their loved ones, which undercuts any generosity they may show.
There are many positive words to describe Aries. But “generous” may not be one of them. It’s not that they aren’t generous, they just tend to be more generous and loyal to their loved ones rather than strangers. Honestly, Virgo and Aries are probably tied on this list. Because even though Aries is not as helpful as Virgo, they are way less critical of their friends than Virgo is.
Scorpios aren’t incredibly stingy. They are fixed signs, so they want to help people. And they are water signs, so they tend to be soft touches. But sadly, they are the least generous water sign. They can be just as dedicated as Virgo and Aries. However, their envy and need for instant gratification tend to make them a bit more selfish.
No one can deny that Geminis are sweet-natured and sympathetic. But that doesn’t necessarily mean they are generous. It’s not that they want to be stingy, it’s just that they aren’t always reliable. You can’t really count on their generosity.
Ok, I’m not saying that Capricorns are like Ebenezer Scrooge, (though I have definitely made that comparison before) but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve. Capricorns can be quite loving and protective over their loved ones. And yes, part of their need to protect means that they can be generous with their time and money. But because of their ambition and success, it can be hard for them to empathize with people whom they believe are not working as hard as they do.
How can Ophiuchus be generous when they are not even a real zodiac sign? But I’m including them on the list so that Capricorn won’t feel like they are the most stingy.
Don’t worry Capricorn. I’m going to be way nicer to you in the next two articles. It is your season after all!
