Why is it that some people seem to have all the luck? They happen to meet someone who can help their career while out and about, then they find a $20 bill on the ground, and then they leave their phone at the bar and it is still there the next day!
Then there is the person who lost that $20, lost their phone, and didn’t get that job that they wanted because they missed the message about the change of interview time and venue.
Luck can feel like it is written in the stars, and your Zodiac sign might be able to reveal just how lucky you are.
Virgo, Leo, and Gemini tend to be the luckiest signs as they have good instincts and are willing to follow them, even if it means taking risks.
Aries, Taurus, and Capricorn tend to be the least lucky signs because they aren’t tuned in to the signs that point to the path of luck. They also tend to believe in hard work over chance.
Let’s look at all the Zodiac signs, starting with the luckiest, and how they manage to make their own luck.
Virgo tends to be the luckiest of all the signs, with things just falling into place for them at exactly the right moment. But there is a lot more going on.
People born under Virgo are highly perceptive and tend to have a good read on what is happening around them. That means that they can spot a good opportunity, and so perfectly position themselves to benefit from it.
Virgos are also talented, hardworking, ethical, reliable, and modest, which means that other people very often want to help them out and give them a leg up. This is a good thing, as Virgo doesn’t know how to ask for help.
Leo is another sign that always seems to not only land on their feet, but fail forward into fantastic opportunities.
This stems largely from their combination of courage, charisma, and warmth. They aren’t afraid to take risks that might pay off, and people are drawn to them and want to know what they are about.
Leos are also innately positive people who, while being very self-involved, actually enjoy helping other people. As a result, they put a lot of good vibes out in the world, which then comes back to them.
Gemini are intelligent, likable, and have incredible instincts. They are another sign who can read the room and spot the right place to be at the right time.
People born under this sign are also highly adaptable and very good at thinking on the feet. So, if an opportunity comes knocking, they know how to fit into the opening offered.
Gemini doesn’t tend to have the same kind of “long-term luck” as Virgo and Leo as they often drop potentially big opportunities as they get distracted and move on to something else.
Scorpio doesn’t have to wait for luck to come knocking, because they know how to make it. No one is better at seeing through people to what they actually want.
People born under Scorpio tend to be talented and intelligent, so they know exactly how to turn a crack into a wide-open door.
But once Scorpio gets what they want, they can be a little over-protective and isolationist. This can stunt their growth and their luck.
Sagittarius is another charismatic risk-taker, which allows them to grab opportunities that others might be too scared to take. This makes them seem very lucky.
But Sagittarius doesn’t have a good gauge for determining the difference between good opportunities and bad opportunities, so they often find themselves in trouble.
Fortunately, Sagittarius has a growth mentality. So, even when things don’t go their way, they learn important lessons. This helps them do better, and be luckier, next time.
Pisces have such positive energy that they attract luck. People want to help them out and see them happy and succeed.
But Pisces can be very timid and will often shy away from challenges, especially if they have to face them on their own. They will only jump in if they have someone that they trust alongside them.
But when they do jump, Pisces does well thanks to their natural creativity. They are able to spot gaps and possibilities better than many.
Cancer is another sign with good instincts that can smell out an opportunity. But they don’t tend to be lucky because they tend to make too many sacrifices.
People born under Cancer are all about community first, and they put the needs of others ahead of their own. So, they might actively ignore an opportunity for themselves for the sake of someone else, even when they haven’t been asked to.
But Cancer tends to be so loved by the people close to them that they rarely have terrible luck, as they have people willing to help them through thick and thin.
Aquarius is so confident in themselves that they think that they can do everything on their own. They aren’t looking for help or support.
While they often are intelligent and talented enough to make it on their own, they often miss out on the inexplicable luck that comes with the perfect collaboration.
Their aloof attitude can also mean that when someone has an opportunity in hand, they might rather give it to someone else. This leaves Aquarius to take the harder path to success, alone.
Libras are likable and they are good at meeting new people and expanding their network. But they don’t tend to be lucky because they are indecisive.
Often grasping onto luck means making a split decision in the moment, but this can be impossible for Libra, who doesn’t always trust their own instincts.
As a result, Libra is that person who often almost got many things. They need to move a little bit faster to become the person who actually wins.
Aries tends to get ahead in life because they work very hard and they are consistent, but they aren’t lucky.
This is largely because Aries doesn’t pay that much attention to what is happening outside of themselves. So, they don’t see the little signals that can direct them towards a lucky break.
People born under Aries also tend to bulldoze over other people to get what they want. That doesn’t always create good connections that can result in lucky breaks.
Taurus works hard and builds opportunities, but they aren’t lucky because they don’t tend to trust anything that comes easy.
People born under Taurus tend to think that a gift always comes at a cost, so they enter most potentially lucky situations with a level of suspicion.
They also appreciate stability and routine, so they aren’t naturally inclined to try something “out of the box” that could bring very big results.
Capricorn doesn’t believe in luck. They think that the only way to get anything in life is through discipline and hard work. So, you will never hear a Capricorn call themselves lucky.
Like Aries, Capricorn tends to be very focused on themselves and not overly perceptive about what is happening around them. So, they miss signals that could lead them down the lucky path.
But that is all fine as far as Capricorn is concerned. They would rather be admired for being tenacious then lucky.
Are You Lucky?
While you Zodiac sign can tell you how inclined you are to be lucky, luck isn’t written in the stars.
They say that luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. So people who work hard, and are both observant and willing to take risks, tend to be the luckiest.
