Um, Can Your Zodiac Sign Predict How Much Money You Make?

Okay, not really. But, we came across a fun study recently that basically attempts to map zodiac signs against net worth. The suggested takeaway: If you were born between May 22 and June 21, you can toss out that class calculator — you're about to join the classes of the super rich.

As with any study published in a tabloid (in this case, The Sun), we approach these findings with the highest degree of scrutiny curiosity.
The study focused on the 1,000 richest people in Britain and was based on a sneak preview of the 25th Sunday Times Rich List. In that group, 9.9% were Geminis. Of course, confusing correlation with causation, the paper jumps to the conclusion that Geminis are better at making money. Like we said, we're skeptical, but it's still pretty interesting. Famed Geminis in the study included Sir Paul McCartney, Jamie Oliver, and Tom Jones. No word yet on any female representatives of the sign.
And what of the super rich who belong to other signs, you ask? Gazillionaire Roman Abramovich is a Scorpio, for one. For the full results, check out The Sun's groundbreaking investigation. Oh, and by the way, Geminis, we told you your week would be good, didn't we? (The Sun)
