Can You Predict Winning Lottery With Your Horoscope & Astrology?

Can you win the lottery based on your horoscope alone? Are the lucky numbers in your daily horoscope actually lucky? Let's see how winning the lottery works with astrology.

Pop Culture

Let me preface this by saying: I’m really into astrology. Not in the way that I’ll avoid wearing the color green if my horoscope says so, but I think the planets give us more information about ourselves than we’re willing to give them credit for.

Personally, I don’t subscribe to the idea that horoscopes are always accurate. Sure, there have been a few times where I’ve checked my horoscope and it’s been weirdly accurate, but for the most part, I think these instances are purely coincidental.

There is no scientific evidence that backs up astrology, but many believe that people dive into their daily horoscopes so deeply because it makes them feel better due to a placebo effect. If your horoscope says you’re about to have an awesome day, you’ll probably view the rest of your day through a cheerful lens — Simple as that.

Can Astrology Predict Winning the Lottery?

Do I believe that astrology can actually predict the future? No, nobody can predict the future. Any small action could change the course of an entire event. The same goes for lottery numbers – they aren’t predetermined, so there’s no way for anyone to be able to predict what they will be.

There are many different ways people decide how to pick their lottery numbers, and if looking at your horoscope is your method, go for it! Just know that it isn’t a surefire way to win. 

What are Your Chances of Winning the Lottery Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

This will come as a shock to absolutely no one, but not many countries seem to see the importance of compiling the birthdays of past lottery winners; except for the land down under, Australia. (Not that this is information the world actually needs, but it’s the information I want.)

Aussie lotto officials compared data from past winners and found that Pisces is the luckiest zodiac sign. In 2019, 11.6% of top lottery prizes went to Pisces, and that number rose to 14.3% in 2020. Gemini also came close to nabbing the top spot, taking home 9.9% in 2019 and 9.5% in 2020.

Here’s how much of the total prize pool the rest of the signs took home in 2020 (and their dates, in case you were wondering how lucky your sign is):

  1. Pisces – 14.3% (February 19 – March 20)
  2. Gemini – 9.5% (May 21 – June 20)
  3. Taurus – 9.2% (April 20 – May 20)
  4. Libra – 9.2% (September 23 – October 22)
  5. Aries – 8.2% (March 21 – April 19)
  6. Sagittarius – 7.8% (November 22 – December 21)
  7. Capricorn – 7.8% (December 22 – January 19)
  8. Aquarius – 7.5% (January 20 – February 18)
  9. Leo – 7.2% (July 23 – August 22)
  10. Scorpio – 6.9% (October 23 – November 21)
  11. Virgo – 6.9% (August 23 – September 22)
  12. Cancer – 5.3% (June 21 – July 22)

Statistics are one thing, but how about personality-wise? Let’s break it down into the four elements and their signs to see which element comes out on top as, potentially, the luckiest, as written by the stars.

Fire Signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Fire signs, naturally, have fiery personalities. They are known for being passionate, spontaneous, and competitive. That spontaneity bodes well for fire signs, who take more chances and bigger risks than the rest of the signs. It makes sense that they would win the lottery more often, just because they’ll take the risk where others wouldn’t.

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Earth signs tend to be more practical, grounded, and logical. They are known to attract money, but this could be because of their logical and driven approach to money-related matters.

These signs are less likely to make a fortune from the lottery simply because they won’t buy into it. Earth signs prefer to play it safe and put their money where they know it’ll be better off, like toward investment funds or paying off debt.

Taurus Lucky Numbers

Taurus’ lucky numbers are: 2, 12, 35

Virgo Lucky Numbers

Virgo’s lucky numbers are: 72, 89, 9

Capricorn Lucky Numbers

Capricorn’s lucky numbers are: 5, 18, 45

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Air signs have a “go with the flow” attitude, but also analyze and think before doing. They’ll go where life takes them, but once they get there, they may have a tough time settling down.

Air signs are the type of people who’ll buy a lottery ticket on a whim and wind up winning the jackpot, but won’t make buying tickets a regular thing because they don’t want to test their luck.

Gemini Lucky Numbers

Gemini’s lucky numbers are: 14, 66, 88

Aquarius Lucky Numbers

Aquarius’ lucky numbers are: 1, 11, 17

Libra Lucky Numbers

Libra’s lucky numbers are: 147, 11, 77

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Water signs are the most intuitive of all the zodiac signs. Most of their decisions are driven by a need for emotional fulfillment. Nothing about them makes them particularly luckier than the other signs, except that they may be more likely to play by “lucky numbers”, like birthdays or anniversary dates.

Pisces especially are known to be very compassionate, giving people. Perhaps Pisces being the sign to win the most lottery money is the universe’s way of making sure that money goes to good people who are more likely to put it toward good use, like charity. Or, maybe it’s all just a big coincidence.

Cancer Lucky Numbers

Cancer’s lucky numbers are: 7, 9, 63

Scorpio Lucky Numbers

Scorpio’s lucky numbers are: 10, 13, 100

Pisces Lucky Numbers

Pisces’ lucky numbers are: 16, 20, 36

Can a Psychic Predict Lottery Numbers?

Although there’s a correlation between psychics and astrology, you don’t necessarily need a ‘sixth sense’ to study and be knowledgeable about what the stars hold.

While many psychics have claimed to predict lottery winners, it’s unclear how many psychics have actually foreseen and selected winning lottery numbers.

This topic has sparked debate on forums like Quora, where some people claim that psychics can predict luck and advise people to purchase lottery tickets, while others believe that psychics are a scam or don’t work.

No matter where you fall on the Zodiac, if you like playing the lottery — you’ll love keno.
