Studies indicate that people born in the first two months of the year often go on to pursue desirable careers
Having your birthday in January or February isn’t necessarily the ideal time as the weather tends to be a bit cold and miserable.
But according to one study, people with the star sign Aquarius are most likely to become rich and famous.
The Journal of Social Sciences found that a large proportion of Hollywood stars were born between January 20 and February 18.
Researchers randomly selected from people of different walks of life, including politicians, scientists, authors, sports icons, singers, actors, and celebrities from history and from the current time.
Starting with a sample size of 100 and increasing to 200 and then 300, researchers found Aquarius to be the zodiac when most of the celebrities are born.
The study concludes: “The highest number of celebrities is born in the zodiac sign Aquarius.”
Typical traits of an Aquarius include being energetic, imaginative and independent according to horoscope.com, so it makes sense some might go on to high-flying creative careers – if you’re someone who believes in astrology that is.
Famous celebrities with that star sign include Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey and Cristiano Ronaldo.
This isn’t the only study that indicates that January and February babies often end up in highly-desirable careers.
Other studies have suggested that people born in winter months are more likely to perform better in tests at school.
Meanwhile researchers within the UK Office of National Statistics analysed 19 different professions from a census to find out how career and birth months correlate.
They determined that people born in January most often went on to be doctors which is pretty amazing, although becoming a debt collector was also an increased likelihoood.
The same ONS study found that people born in February were more likely than any other month to be artists.
Babies born in January were also found to be more likely to grow up to be CEOs.
A study of S&P 500 companies from 1992 to 2009, found that 10 percent of CEOs were born in January, ranking them among the top five CEO-producing months.
It’s worth noting that although these studies show a correlation between birth month and future career, it doesn’t mean people born at other times of year aren’t set for a fabulous future.
