There’s a really interesting and fun start-up called PiggyMojo. The idea is that you and a buddy team up to save. And so you and your spouse, you and your best friend, you and your sister, sign up together. You set up a savings goal. And then essentially, the idea is to try and turn impulse spending into impulse saving.

Mars in the solar money sector can affect our Leo in one of two ways. The less evolved Lion King/Queen gets made over into a monster of must-have madness, up all night e-shopping to supplement dysfunctional daytime Thing Lust. But the Neo Leo stems Qi leakage via true taste, substance and quality. This astro-passage is powerful fiscal medicine. Use it or lose it. There are just ten more impulse saving/shopping/investing days to go!
