Their practical approach, with a healthy dose of intuitive guidance, leads to balanced decision-making and a win-win in business.

As evidenced by the many successful moguls under this sign, Virgos are business-savvy individuals who often stay two steps ahead.

3. Scorpio

Scorpios have a strong sense of intuition that borders on psychic abilities for some.

Their adaptability lends itself to being resourceful in life and business, while their determination keeps them laser-focused on their target. With an unwavering spirit and a knack for leading teams, a Scorpio that chooses business ownership is a force to be reckoned with.

4. Aries

The energy of Aries is made for the ebb and flow of building a business. Their ambitious and outgoing personality fuels many of their passionate pursuits, which can be unstoppable when the individual is committed. Ariens’ major motivations are competition, tackling challenges, and striving toward goals. As a sign that is naturally willing to take risks and get things done, Aries makes ideal business leaders who bring adventure and energy to the scene.

In fact, the founder of Her Agenda, Rhonesha Byng, is an Aries.

Famous Aries: Keegan Michael Key (Mar. 22), Ayesha Curry (Mar. 23), Pharrell (Apr. 5), Billy Dee Williams (Apr. 6), Lil Nas X (Apr. 9), Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds (Apr. 10), Claudia Jordan (Apr. 12)

While these four zodiac signs are likely to start a business, plenty of successful business owners across the astrology scope exist. Whether your sign makes the superlative list of “most likely” or not, each sign has unique traits that can help nearly any business pursuit. 

While some find the entrepreneurial journey more challenging than others, Virgos, Leos, Scorpios, and Aries have quite the leg up based on the characteristics. Each of these signs offers a strength to the business world that puts ideas into action, leading to timeless brands and billion-dollar industries.
