This Star Sign Means You’re More Likely to be a Top Celebrity

Combined, the world’s top celebrities netted a staggering $6.3 billion over the last year - an amount that is more than the GDP of Fiji - and that left us thinking, what could be behind that sweet celebrity success? Maybe it’s written in the stars...

Who’d have thought being a goat would help you become the G.O.A.T? New research into the world’s top celebrities has revealed that the star sign most likely to make it as a high-flying, top paid celebrity is none other than Capricorn. Using data taken from the Forbes 2018 World’s Highest Paid Celebrity List, money-saving app vouchercloud has discovered which of the 12 zodiac signs boasts the most stars by delving into the birthdays of the world’s highest-paid celebs.

If your star sign is Capricorn you could be in luck, often considered stubborn, overachieving and unforgiving Capricorns are also known to be hardworking, ambitious and highly dedicated to their goals and those with birthdays between December 22nd and January 19th might just find fame and fortune coming their way! The top spot is closely followed by Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18), Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22) and Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22) star signs.

These are the top star signs ranked in order of the world’s most successful celebrities:

1.Capricorn
2.Aquarius 
=3.Virgo
=3.Leo
=5.Cancer
=5.Aries
=5.Taurus
8.Scorpio
9.Libra
10.Pisces
11.Gemini
12.Sagittarius

Interestingly, the research also reveals that the upper echelons of stardom in 2018 were dominated by males with nearly 88% of the list being men. Top of the list this year was Floyd Mayweather, who made a colossal $285 million over the year. However, making the top three - and the youngest of this year’s celebrities - 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is doing it for the girls and takes the third spot with $166.5 million.

Notable Capricorn celebrities include American golfer Tiger Woods, Scottish DJ and Producer Calvin Harris, Canadian singer-songwriter The Weeknd and Indian actor Salman Khan.

Close the hitting that top spot, if you’re an Aquarius you’re almost as likely to make it to the big time according to the list. Celebrities whose birthdays sit in the Aquarius sign include English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, American rapper Dr.Dre and two of Football’s biggest players Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar.

Sorry to say those with birthdays between November 22nd and December 21st, the Sagittarius of you, could be less likely to hit the big time coming in at the bottom of the list. 
Still, with Jay Z and Scarlett Johansson as fellow Sagittarians, you’re in good company.

When it comes to professions, it’s athletes that take home the gold with 12.12% of the celebrities listed being sportspeople. Musicians (10.61%) follow closely behind, followed by Personalities (9.85%) and Actors (9.85%).

Capricorns may dominate when it comes to making it as a celebrity, however, if it’s the green you’re after it is, in fact, those with a Taurus star sign that could be making the big bucks. Combined, from the celebrity list, they take home nearly 13% of the $6.3 billion pot.
