your zodiac sign's lucky number

I think I can reasonably say that I am one of the unluckiest people I know. I seem to always get handed the short end of the stick for whatever reason, which definitely makes it hard to believe that luck is real or at least real enough for everyone to get a chance at it. Even my horoscope can't convince me otherwise sometimes.

But one thing I do believe is that everyone has an opportunity to make their own luck. Take it from me: sitting around waiting for something to happen isn’t going to make you lucky. But putting in the work to make things happen for yourself will.

Watch the video below to learn more about calculating your life path number, according to numerology:

Think of it this way: If you really wanted a job, one that would pay you twice as much and is a total upgrade from your current job, would you cross your fingers and hope it falls into your lap? Of course not! You would go out and network, apply with a kick-ass resumé, and make yourself seem like the company’s only option for this awesome job.

That’s the difference between being lucky and making your own luck.

This approach doesn’t always work, no matter how much effort you put in, but when you believe in making your own luck, you are more receptive to welcoming new opportunities into your life. And while it may seem like a total surprise to you to get this amazing job, you know in the back of your mind that all that time spent beefing up your social profiles and getting to know the company is what helped pave the road to this good fortune.

For some of us, myself included, I know that luck is mostly on you, but it can also be a gift from astrology, the Universe, or whatever you believe in.

I know this sounds weird, but just hear me out. Luck is luck for a reason; it’s meant to be a little bit of a surprise and a little bit of a blessing.

So even if you’re the type of person to go out there and make your own luck, there might still be a part of you that knows some sliver of your success was because of something bigger than you. And whether you believe that luck is all in the stars or not, this “something bigger” is what keeps us hopeful for the next time we have the opportunity for luck.

But before you believe in any crazy nonsense you may have heard, take some advice from these four zodiac signs and learn how to make your own luck, instead of waiting for things to go your way. Plus, discover your zodiac sign's lucky number.

1. ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Aries knows that nothing happens unless you make it happen, which is why she is a firm believer in making her own luck. That said, things do tend to come easily to her anyway, but that’s probably only because she’s already open to new opportunities. Because she is so aware of her surroundings and always meeting new people, Aries has a lot of chances to find these opportunities.

One thing Aries hates is the phrase “all good things come to those who wait.” If you ask her, she’ll tell you that all good things come to those who go out and grab them. When you learn how to do that, you start to find good fortune everywhere you go.

2. LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo seems like the type of person to get everything handed to her on a silver platter, but in reality, she knows that hard work and dedication is what makes her lucky. She might also seem very focused on herself (to a detrimental degree), but it’s only because she wants to prove that being positive and receptive to luck actually pays off.

Don’t let her “me, me, me” attitude fool you, though. Leo is no stranger to kicking butt when it comes to getting what she wants in life. That said, she knows the difference between making your own luck and letting the Universe take care of you every once in a while.

3. VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Virgo has a solid head on her shoulders, so she knows that people don’t usually get lucky unless they take matters into their own hands. It may look like Virgo has been given a lot of lucky breaks in life — especially when she tells you how fortunate she is that she’s been able to do a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — but that is only because she knows that with her smarts and drive, she can achieve anything.

Of course, Virgo is no stranger to getting knocked down over and over, but she doesn’t usually let people see this side of her. She likes being someone people can admire and be inspired by when she makes her own luck, and if that means keeping her struggles to herself, then that’s what she does.

4. AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarius makes her own luck based on what the Universe tells her. She tries to be the “go get 'em” type of girl, but if that doesn’t always work, she tries to make decisions from within. She can often be equal parts “make your own luck” and “let the Universe bring you luck” so when she does succeed, it can be a mystery to everyone how she did it.

Aquarius believes that luck comes from yourself, so you won’t see her trying to ride someone else’s coattails just because they caught a lucky break and she didn’t. Aquarius wants to be known as someone who made her own luck just by being herself.
