Since real-life crystal balls don’t exist, zodiac signs are the next-best option. Believers say the stars can predict everything from your most attractive trait to how your zodiac sign could impact your health. And now, new data suggests they might even be able to predict our chance of becoming a billionaire. In fact, harnessing one of these 10 personality traits could help you become a millionaire.

If you’re a Libra, consider yourself in luck. Researchers at the UK Domain, an educational resource that provides digital and business expertise to individuals and small businesses, found that out of the top 250 billionaires on the recently released Forbes Billionaire list, there were more Libras (September 23 to October 22) than any other sign. Overall, there were 27 billionaire Libras on the list. Pisces came in second, with 22 billionaires, followed by Cancer, Taurus, Leo, all of which tied with 20. Capricorn and Sagittarius came in last, with just 8 billionaires for each zodiac sign. Here’s the full list:

Libra: 27

Pisces: 22

Cancer: 20

Taurus: 20

Leo: 20

Scorpio: 16

Gemini: 15

Aries: 15

Aquarius: 12

Virgo: 11

Sagittarius: 8

Capricorn: 8

Some of the notable Libras to make the list were Alice Walton, the 17th richest billionaire and richest woman in the world. She is the daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton. Another chain store heiress who made the cut was Beate Heister, daughter of Karl Albrecht who founded the discount supermarket chain Aldi. Yet again, Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos, ranks as the world’s richest billionaire. But he’s not a Libra, he’s a Capricorn. Here is the underrated skill these billionaires say you need to succeed.

Analysts have been tracking the relationship between birth month and success rates for years. In a 2017 study, researchers at the University of Toronto, the University of Florida, and Northwestern University in Illinois found that babies born in September have the highest chance of feeling confident in themselves and going to college. September babies also had the lowest chance of being incarcerated to a juvenile detention facility.

That’s surprisingly similar to what the billionaire study revealed. September babies are either Libra or Virgo; the latter ranked tenth on this list of billionaires. We admit that it’s not always an exact science. Successful billionaire Bill Gates is actually a Scorpio–here’s how different the world would be without him.
