How your zodiac sign affects your luck in life and your career

February 23rd, 2021

Most of us believe in luck, but far fewer believe in astrology. And yet, your sign might have quite a bit to tell you about your personality, tendencies, and even your work style.

So what makes each sign lucky, what should we watch out for, and what days, numbers, and even gemstones can we use to manifest more luck?

Even if you think it’s all hocus pocus, it’s always fun to see if you fit the form.

Aries

Being the first sign in the zodiac, Aries are the leaders of the pack. They’re characterized by their energy and desire for adventure, making them great creators and competitors. They pour so much quick thinking and fearlessness into the things they try that they’re often lucky in business and make great entrepreneurs.

But with that enthusiasm and desire to be the first and best can come selfish and impulsive behavior, sometimes alienating people on their quest for success or blowing their wealth on shopping or gambling or risky stock market maneuvers.

With all this in mind, it’s no surprise that Aries are likely to find financial success by starting a business. Any trade that requires leadership, persuasiveness, and high-pressure is a good match since this sign thrives and succeeds when the challenges are great.

Their lucky day is Tuesdays and their lucky number is 9. The stone that brings them the most luck is the diamond.

Taurus

While a Taurus is likely to be patient and loving, they are also motivated by reward. This means they tend to create their own luck through lots of hard work.

And where an Aries loves playing the game, a Taurus is all about reaping the benefits – and they’re willing to wait stubbornly to get them.

A love of excess (think anything from fine wine to a fat bank account) can make a Taurus greedy and self-indulgent but also means they are likely to use their luck to create a life full of beautiful things.

Their patience makes them able to focus better than most, so unlike Aries, a Taurus will have the most luck in a career that allows them to succeed by being slow and methodical, like investment banking, or one that deals with things like luxury goods or art.

Fridays are their lucky days and their lucky number is 6. Their stone is the emerald.

Gemini

A Gemini’s luck lies in their ability to be adaptable, communicative, and charming. They love talking and forming meaningful relationships with people who appreciate their eloquence and intellect.

Careers in which they can be the life of the party will bring them good fortune and they’re often excellent change-makers and communicators. But this also means that their luck can run out during tough times if they’re not caring properly for themselves.

Because they thrive on new ideas and people, they can become restless when alone or tire people out with their quick wit. Careers in which they can assimilate large amounts of information and communicate it well – such as PR or journalism – suit them well as long as it’s not a solitary pursuit.

Wednesday is their lucky day and 5 their lucky number. Their stone is agate.

Cancer

Cancers have a keen eye for what lies beneath and are good community-builders, so careers in which intuition or team-building are central will bring them the most success. Their creativity and love of nurturing also make them good chefs or caregivers.

Cancers thrive on imagination and creativity, but can also be very emotional (some might even say moody). And while they can be cautious by nature, potential mood swings don’t necessarily lead to lucky moments, so they need to keep emotions in check without suppressing their feelings.

Monday is their lucky day and 7 their lucky number. Their stone is pearl.

Leo

Generous and open-minded, Leos like to dream big. They’re also natural performers, so they are likely to have luck in careers like show business or leadership positions.

While their naturally ambitious and their enthusiasm makes the fun to be around, they can also be patronizing, which can sometimes get in the way of their good fortunes. But by tempering their confidence to be less self-aggrandizing, they can make it big.

Sunday is their lucky day and 9 is their lucky number. Their stone is ruby – wear it for good luck!

Virgo

Virgos are meticulous and practical and their luck often comes as a result of diligent research. And since they are natural worriers and a bit overcritical, they tend to think through every scenario.

But they can get in their own way is their perfectionism keeps them from accomplishing things. A Virgo’s best bet is to open themselves up to luck once in a while and remain confident that they’ve already done the hard work. They make good lawyers, consultants, and financial planners.

Wednesday is their lucky day and 5 is their lucky number. Their stone is sapphire.

Libra

Libras are romantic and charming and enjoy the luxurious things in life. They often make successful careers for themselves in fashion, sales, and real estate.

Libras are the luckiest when they work in pairs and since they have a tendency to be diplomating and sociable, this often works out well for them. Teamwork makes their dream work.

But their easygoing nature can mean the end of their luck, however, if it causes them to be gullible or easily duped.

Friday is their lucky day and 9 is their lucky number. Their stone is the opal.

Scorpio

Scorpios are known for being intuitive and their luck often comes from being able to see a situation or a person for what they really are beneath the surface.

They’re also determined and forceful and they like to get to the bottom of things. This can give them a competitive advantage over those who get bogged down in the details or wait to make decisions.

But their luck can run out when they let strong emotions like jealousy or resentment take over.

Tuesday is their lucky day and 2 is their lucky number. Their stone is topaz.

Sagittarius

You can count on a Sagittarius to be honest and optimistic, but their freedom-loving nature can sometimes make them irresponsible. Their luck can go either way thanks to their “ride or die” nature and sometimes brutal honesty.

Their strengths lie in their willingness to take risks and desire for inner knowledge and they make excellent marketers. Their keen understanding of people allows them to be great influencers.

Thursday is their lucky day and 5 is their lucky number. Their stone is turquoise.

Capricorn

Ambition and patience are the keys to a Capricorn’s luck and success. They’re also ambitious, so they’re happy to work long and hard for their success.

Naturals at business, they’re accustomed to good fortune and are practical thinkers.

Their main downfall is their tendency to be pessimistic and underappreciate their own success while they simultaneously crave it, so that’s something to watch out for.

Saturday is their lucky day and 8 is their lucky number. Their stone is garnet.

Aquarius

Friendly and honest, an Aquarius thrives when they’re engaged in global causes that mean something to them or the planet. Their luck comes from their ability to create new and inventive solutions.

They can have a one-track mind and seem detached, but they’re natural inventors who direct their intellect towards thinking outside the box. They make great communicators and campaigners for good causes.

Their lucky day is Wednesday and their lucky number is 7. For an extra boost of luck, wear amethyst.

Pisces

Pisces are sensitive and compassionate and their luck comes from their creative intuition – their gut instincts are usually spot-on. They make great artists, writers, and healing arts practitioners (like yoga and meditation instructors).

While they may wander down the wrong path due to their tendencies for escapism and they can be impressionable, but their helping nature creates good karma.

Their lucky day is Friday, and their lucky number is 6. Their stone is aquamarine.
