People born with the Aquarius star sign are more likely to become rich and famous, according to a new study.

The study, published in the Journal of Social Sciences, found that there were a large number of Hollywood A-listers who were born between January 20 and February 18.

The researchers selected a group of 100 famous faces – from a variety of different fields, including  singers, actors, athletes, politicians, humanitarians, scientists and visual artists.

The authors said 60 per cent of the celebrities chosen were alive at the time of the study, while 70 per cent of the sample size were male.

The researchers looked at when the celebrities were born, finding that there were more Aquarius celebrities than any other star sign.

This did not change, according to the researchers, when the sample size was increased to 200 or when it was increased to 300.

The positive correlation between the celeb’s date of brith and fame actually ended up increasing when the sample size went up to 300.

The study also found that while no other zodiac sign had the same kind of consistent pattern, there were a high number of celebrities who were Leos – with birthdays between July 31 and August 21 – or Scorpios – with birthdays from October 24 to November 22.

The star signs with the lowest number of celebrities were Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 22) and Taurus (April 21 to May 21).
