How Lucky You Are In Life, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Zodiac, Self

Are you feeling lucky?

Are you the kind of person who gets lucky or is just lucky? Do you ever ask yourself, "how lucky am I?" when thinking about where you are in life?

Luck comes in many different forms. You may have the kind of luck where you get to your parked car just before you get a ticket, or maybe you always know the winning lottery numbers. Do you amaze your friends and family with your ability to win things such as trivia contests, giveaways, and money? Is Las Vegas or Atlantic City your home away from home?

Some of us are just lucky and we like to ensure our good luck by searching for 4-leaf clovers, carrying items that we consider bring us good luck, or throwing salt over our shoulder.

I consider myself a lucky person. I’ve won radio contests, I won a bike when I was a kid and I’ve won money in Las Vegas. I think part of my luck is the fact that I believe that I have it, so I go into any situation already feeling lucky. If you think of yourself as someone who never wins, you probably won’t.

While I do like to gamble, I don’t trust my luck to bet big. I don’t want to have to mortgage my house or sell a trusted family heirloom, though if someone is selling raffle tickets I may buy a few to help out. And besides, you never know.

Luck isn't something that you should depend on. If you do something wrong, don’t think your luck is going to prevent you from getting into trouble or paying the price. Luck can't protect you or save you.

You need to forget about your luck, do the work, and when something good happens, know that you were lucky enough to have done what you needed to do. If you were born under a lucky star, who better to know it than astrology?

Here’s how lucky you are, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're lucky in the way that you make opportunities for yourself; in essence, you make your own luck. You don't depend on some mystical magical force to make good things happen for you; you do what needs to be done and you profit from it. You wouldn't mind a lucky break but you're not counting on one. You believe that saying, "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You don't put much faith in luck because you have more bad luck than good. But you're a survivor and no matter how bad a break you may have had, you've been able to turn it around to work in your favor. It's your incredible strength of will that makes you persevere no matter the unlucky things that have happened to you. You've got everything you need to make a good life for yourself and that doesn't include a lucky rabbit's foot or a lucky coin.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You learned a long time ago not to depend on your luck but to depend on your wits. Geminis are considered one of the luckier signs but that's okay because you're intelligent, driven, and cunning enough to handle any challenge or obstacle that comes your way. It's probably a good thing that you're not that lucky because you'd never have any of your great hard luck stories that win you so many admirers.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You were born under a lucky star and even though you can't always see it, you're truly lucky. You get all kinds of serendipitous breaks and opportunities that most people don't get. No, most people don't find money in the street nor do they win a jackpot just because they found a quarter on the floor and put it in a slot machine for a giggle. Try seeing and being grateful for all your good fortune.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You're not especially lucky but it seems as if everything you touch turns to gold. You're lucky in the way that you have an innate sense of who you are and what you can accomplish. You don't need a lucky star because you are the star. You're the one who is running the show and if you have some bad luck, you'll just find a way to turn it into a positive and something that will help you succeed in an even more glorious way.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You've never been someone to depend on luck because you've never had much. Everything you have is from your gifts of learning and focus. You've never done anything the easy way and that's made you the incredible person you are. It's funny but while you might not be that lucky, people feel lucky to know you because you enrich their lives so much.

You're extremely lucky and you don't take it for granted. Your luckiness has helped to give you a positive outlook on the world and your life. You try to see the good in every situation and that attitude plays out in wonderful ways in your life. You know that you're luckier than most and you try to pay it forward and give to others as much as you've been given.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

It's easy to assume because of your sometimes-pessimistic attitude that you haven't been that lucky in life, but that's not true. You're quite lucky, especially in terms of manifesting what you want. If you put your mind to it, there's not much you can't get. If you want some money, to go on a trip, or even get a new pair of boots, you just focus on what you want and somehow you get it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You're definitely one of the luckiest of the zodiac signs. It doesn't matter if you're traveling in a foreign country or at home, you seem to attract good fortune. Who else gets bumped up to first class for seemingly no reason, or who finds themselves in a scary part of town in an unknown city but remains unscathed? You seem to attract good luck like bees to honey, which is a good thing for you to have as you do seem to like to push your luck sometimes.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You're lucky with money. You're one of those people who get money from completely unexpected sources — a rich aunt who passes away and leaves you an inheritance, or you get a large sum to leave your house. You're also lucky in that you know what to do with an unexpected dividend. You don't blow it in two seconds; you save it and earn interest. You don't depend on luck but you're happy when you have some good fortune every now and again.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Okay, so you're not the luckiest person in the world and you've had many challenges thrown at you. It's okay, you're a fighter and you won't let anything get you down. You might not get any breaks but you take what you get and you use it. You're creative enough to turn around that bad luck and make it into something resembling good fortune. Not having continuous good luck just makes you more innovative and determined.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You're extremely lucky but you're so used to it that you don't always appreciate it. You get things that you want, whether it's because you just have an innate sense of how to get them or because you're guided by unseen forces. You need to believe that you deserve your good fortune and that the luckiest thing of all is the inspiration you get all the time.
