(CBS DETROIT) – If your financial portfolio is losing value, you’re not alone.

Inflation and a volatile market can create the perfect storm that unleashes pain, but Nichole Baaki of JP Morgan Chase offers this advice.

“We have an entire six months to sort of look back and see what does our spending look like,” Baaki said.

“What do our savings, how are we investing? And so, we think its a great time for our families to take a step back and look at that. Not just things individually, but the full financial plan.”

Wealth management experts say it’s not wise to make emotional investment decisions, even in times of financial uncertainty.

“The Google searches for just the word recession are higher today, than they were even during the Covid-19 lockdowns of April of 2020,” Baaki explained.

“So, it’s really important in these types of situations, what we would tell our clients and community members is that having a plan, understanding your goals, and really trying to avoid making decisions based out of fear is most important during times like these.”

It’s also important to have a backup plan.

Create an emergency savings fund, with three to six months of expenses put away.

Also avoid selling out of your longer-term investments.

“If we have individuals or families that want to save or invest more, its like the old mom adage of paying yourself first or setting it up on an automatic basis so money is moving on a weekly basis or a monthly basis into that designated savings account or investment account that’s tied to a specific goal you have,” Baaki said.

There’s multiple threads in Reddit dedicated to the trend.

“Has anyone tried planning their future children’s zodiac based on you and your s/o zodiac?” the Reddit question begins.

“I think it’s a great idea! My parents and I had an incredible relationship.”

Another added: “I like the idea of adding a Libra. I have had three best friends that have been Libras so I thought maybe that could work!”

According to Vice, belief in zodiac signs is prevalent among multiple aspiring parents in America who plan when they want to conceive their child.

However, it doesn’t always go to plan.

The US outlet spoke to several parents who had their babies slightly too early or too late to fulfil their wishes of having the perfect zodiac sign.

Mackenzie Warren, from the US state of North Carolina, was hoping for a Scorpio child but her daughter ended up being Libra.

The couple tried again but deliberately delayed it hoping to avoid a Pisces. The second time it worked, as they ended up in Aquarius.

Parents are timing their pregnancies to coincide with desirable zodiac sign birth months – and it’s a phenomenon that stretches back years.

Then there’s Kimberly Miller, from LA, who told the publication that she really didn’t want a Virgo child because that had been her mother’s zodiac, who was quite uptight.

Accordingly, when her due date approached, she tried all kinds of things to kick the process along as the Virgo months neared.
