You should probably know by now that we love astrology. Whether it’s about who’s the most likely to win the lottery to what the future has in store, if there’s something our star sign can tell us? We want to know about it.
New research from TheMoneyPig.com aims to identify which star sign is the most likely to be successful in the workplace, and go on to become a CEO. They analysed the global top 100 companies of 2019 (defined by market capitalisation ) as detailed in Pwc’s report, and looked at the birthdays of each chief executive officer, to reveal the most frequent star sign.
The research revealed that the star sign with the largest number of CEOs was Taurus (born between April 21 and May 21), while Aries (born between March 21 and April 20) had the least.
The full research was as follows. The number of CEOs from the top 100 companies in each star sign:
- Taurus – 13 CEOs
- Gemini – 11 CEOs
- Capricorn – 100 CEOs
- Libra – 9 CEOs
- Leo – 8 CEOs
- Pisces – 6 CEOs
- Scorpio – 5 CEOs
- Cancer – 4 CEOs
- Virgo – 4 CEOs
- Aquarius – 3 CEOs
- Aries – 2 CEOs
Of course, it’s worth noting that success is totally defined by you – being a CEO might not mean gaining career triumph to some people, while to others it might be the be all and end all.
It’s also worth noting this is based on one study, and it’s not a one size fits all rule – Satya Nadella, the number one company on the list’s CEO (Microsoft), is a Leo – fifth on the list. And Apple’s Tim Cook falls into Scorpio in position 8.
So if you’re an Aries who wants to be a top CEO? You got this!
