The Astrology of Lottery Winners



Lottery wins are usually attributed to the 2nd, 5th, 8th, and 11th houses, the planets in these houses, and their rulers. The 2nd house represents wealth and material possessions; the fifth house represents the lottery and gambling; the 8th house represents unearned money and other people’s money; the 11th house rules accumulated wealth and fluctuating money gains. Jupiter in any of these houses can indicate someone who is lucky when it comes to money. 

Lottery Winners often have a Venus-Jupiter aspect in their natal chart. Venus is the natural ruler of the 2nd house, which represents material possessions. Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion. As such, Venus-Jupiter aspects can indicate luck in accumulating money. Alternatively, the ruler of the 2nd in aspect to Jupiter can also indicate someone who may win the lottery.

Jupiter-Uranus connections are also common in the charts of lottery winners. Jupiter represents wealth and abundance, and Uranus represents the unexpected. Taken together, Jupiter-Uranus aspects often indicate unexpected gains (and losses).

Sagittarius on the cusp of the “money” houses (2nd, 5th, 8th, 11th) can suggest good fortune when it comes to money. Indeed, luck plays a large role in winning the lottery. The same can be said for individuals with Jupiter in these houses.

Jupiter on the South Node is another indicator of individuals with considerable luck. This aspect indicates that the individual’s good fortune is “ingrained”; thus, they tend to attract significant luck. Daredevil Felix Baumgartner (the man who did a free-fall from the stratosphere and gracefully landed on Earth on his feet) also has this aspect.

Lottery Winners often have well-aspected Parts of Fortune, a calculated point which indicates wealth and prosperity.



Example 1: 

A lottery winner from Massachusetts won in October 1996. This person has Mercury, the ruler of her second house, square Jupiter in the 11th house. Pluto is located in her 5th house of “gambling”, opposite her Part of Fortune in the 10th house of public recognition and notoriety. Perhaps this was an indication that she would achieve fame (10th house) for her wealth (Part of Fortune). Her Venus and Jupiter are located in the same sign of Pisces.

The day of her win, transiting Pluto, the planet of transformation, had just entered her 8th house of “unearned” money and shared resources. Pluto was exactly square her natal Jupiter, the ruler of her 8th house is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter made an exact semi-sextile to her natal Part of Fortune. Transiting Saturn was exactly square her natal Uranus, indicating sudden surprises.

Her Progressed MC (fame, public recognition) was exactly conjunct her natal Jupiter (ruler of her 8th house). Her progressed Moon was exactly square her MC that day. Indeed, her social status improved due to her win, and she achieved fame in the public eye.


Example 2: 

Another lucky winner has Moon in the 2nd house conjunct her Uranus and Jupiter in her 1st house. The Moon rules her 11th house of accumulated wealth and money fluctuations. In addition, Jupiter-Uranus aspects in the natal chart can indicate a lottery winner; Jupiter represents wealth and abundance, while Uranus represents sudden, unexpected events.

Her natal Jupiter and Uranus are conjunct her South Node. This means that luck and surprise are ingrained in her life. Individuals with Jupiter on the South Node, in my opinion, are incredibly lucky. Because surprise and luck are so “normal” for them, their luck tends to be more significant than the luck of others.

The day of her win, transiting Jupiter, the planet of luck and abundance, was conjunct her natal Saturn, the ruler of her 5th house of risk-taking and gambling. In addition, transiting Neptune was square her natal Saturn; Setting off this transit was transiting Sun was opposite her natal Jupiter/Uranus/Moon conjunction. Transiting Mars was exactly conjunct her natal Mars- ruler of her 8th house of “unearned wealth”. Transiting Venus, the planet of material wealth, was square her MC, thrusting her into the spotlight. Transiting North Node was trine her Mars, signifying a nudge towards her destiny, as they relate to fifth house activities. Transiting Uranus was exactly on her Vertex, indicating a sudden, fated event.

Transiting NN was conjunct her progressed Mercury in the 11th house. This, in addition to her other North Node transits and strong Nodal connections in her birth chart, indicates she was being pulled forward towards her 11th house goals.


Example 3: 

Another lucky winner has her natal Jupiter in her 11th house of accumulated wealth and money fluctuations. The ruler of her 11th house, the Sun, is square the ruler of her 5th house, Uranus. Indeed, Uranus on the cusp of the 5th can indicate unexpected gains through risk-taking activities such as gambling. Her natal Uranus is also trine her 11th house Jupiter, the planet of wealth and abundance. Her natal chart also features a Sun-POF opposition.

The day of her win, transiting Sun was conjunct her natal MC and opposite her Part of Fortune. Transiting Saturn was conjunct her natal Jupiter in the 11th house of accumulated wealth.  Transiting Saturn was also trine her natal Uranus, the ruler of her 5th house. Uranus was trine her natal Sun, ruler of her 11th house, indicating sudden surprises and unexpected events related to accumulated wealth.  In addition, transiting Uranus was also conjunct her natal North Node, indicating sudden, unexpected events.
