Making it to the rich list involves hard work. And if you believe in a higher power, your astrological sign may have a role in your success as well. So, which horoscope rules supreme? And is your sign at the top?

Rich lists are all about the zeroes against the names of a select few. But what contributes to those zeroes? Legacy, family name, hard work, luck? Or perhaps something simpler: the stars that these billionaires were born under.
