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.
To determine whether someone will win the lottery, it must be first indicated in the natal chart.
The ruler the 2nd house in hard aspect to Pluto – THIS ONE IS VERY IMPORTANT!
It is very common to see Pluto in conjunction or hard aspect to the ruler of the 2nd house in lottery winner charts. Pluto is the planet of extremes and deep transformation, so when it is in aspect to the ruler of your 2nd house, it can indicate a huge financial change at some point in your life.
To figure out when, look at progressions. Often, when the aspect narrows to less than a 0.1 degree orb, the native may see a huge financial change in their life. Of course, Pluto can also bring financial ruin, which is why it is important to look at the whole chart when determining lottery potential.
Aspects to look out for:
- Natal Pluto in hard aspect (conjunction, opposition, square) to your 2nd house ruler
- If no Pluto in hard aspect to 2nd house ruler, Pluto in the 2nd house can also work (as long as it is well aspected)
Look at the rulers of your money houses
Having the rulers of the financial houses in other financial houses is very important indicator of wealth
I commonly see the rulers of the 2nd, 5th, 8th and 11th houses in the financial houses. Depending on how they are aspected, wealth can be indicated. I can usually see many interaspects between the these planets in the charts of lottery winners.
For example, the ruler of your 8th house in your 2nd house can indicate great wealth if it is well aspected.
It’s even more powerful if the ruler of your 8th house is located in a money house, AND aspects another money house ruler in another money house.
Aspects to look out for:
- Ruler of the 2nd house in the 5th, 8th, or 11th house
- Ruler of the 5th house in the 2nd, 8th, or 11th house
- Ruler of the 8th house in the 2nd, 5th, or 11th house
- Ruler of the 11th house in the 2nd, 5th, or 8th house
- Ruler of the 2nd, 5th, 8th, or 11th house in aspect to the ruler of the 2nd, 5th, 8th, or 11th house
Planets in the 2nd house
It is not uncommon to see one or several planets in the second house of a lottery winner’s natal chart. If the planets are the rulers of the 5th, 8th, or 11th houses, this is a good indication that you will receive money through speculative activities or through a windfall.
How these planets are aspected is extremely important, as well. As said before, a hard aspect from Pluto to a 2nd house planet can indicate a big financial transformation. I also see Jupiter in hard aspect to 2nd house planets, as well.
Aspects to look out for:
- Planets in the 2nd house, especially Pluto, Jupiter, North Node, 8th house ruler, 5th house ruler, 11th house ruler
Jupiter in the money houses
I commonly see Jupiter in the 8th and 11th houses in the charts of lottery winners.
The 8th house represents windfalls and gifts, and Jupiter is the planet of expansion and luck, so this placement is frequently seen in the charts of lottery winners. It is also very common to see in the charts of people who marry wealthy spouses. This placement is even more powerful if Jupiter rules the 2nd, 5th, 8th, or 11th house.
The 11th house represents wealth and big gains, so its placement in the 11th house is very powerful. I generally consider Jupiter in the 11th house to be very lucky when it comes to money in general (as long as the rest of the birth chart agrees).
Jupiter in the 2nd and 5th houses are also good indications of wealth, especially if Jupiter is the ruler of one of the financial houses.
Sagittarius on the cusp of the “money” houses (2nd, 5th, 8th, 11th) can suggest good fortune when it comes to money.
Aspects to look out for:
- Jupiter in the 2nd house
- Jupiter in the 5th house
- Jupiter in the 8th house (very strong indicator of wealth if well-aspected)
- Jupiter in the 11th house (very strong indicator of wealth if well-aspected)
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).
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 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.
Part of Fortune
Lottery Winners often have a well-aspected Part of Fortune, a calculated point which indicates wealth and prosperity. However, I find that the Part of Fortune is even more relevant in a progressed chart.
A lottery winner from Massachusetts won in October 1996.
What is the ruler of her 2nd house? MERCURY.
What aspects does her Mercury make? A square from Pluto! So, we see that Pluto squaring the ruler of the 2nd house is present in this chart. This means she was meant to undergo a major financial transformation in her life.
She also has JUPITER in her 11th house, which is, in itself, a wealth indicator. Jupiter rules her 8th house, so its placement in her 11th house makes it even more powerful. It is also square her 2nd house ruler, Mercury.
Speaking of Jupiter, guess what transits she had going on when she won the lottery? Transiting Pluto had just entered her 8th house, and make a square to her natal Jupiter. If that isn’t an indication of a lottery win, I don’t know what is!
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.
In this winner’s chart, we see a 2nd house full of planets: Moon conjunct Part of Fortune, Mars conjunct Mercury(the ruler of the 11th house), and Pluto conjunct Sun. Given the packed nature of this house, along with Pluto, gives us an indication that this person will undergo a huge financial change in their life.
Pluto in the 2nd house is also square the Vertex, the point of fate.
When this person won the lottery, transiting Jupiter was in their 8th house, opposing their 2nd house planets. In addition, transiting Pluto was square their natal Sun in the 2nd house.
In addition, there was a Saturn-Uranus opposition at that time, which fell in their 2nd/8th house axis. It is no surprise such a sudden, transformative event took place that day!
This winner had many natal aspects and placements that indicated financial success.
First, they have the North Node conjunct Sun and Mercury (the ruler of the 8th house) in the 2nd house, which indicates the a huge focus on financial progress. The 8th house has to do with unearned wealth and gifts, so its conjunction to the 2nd house North Node indicates a fated pull towards wealth.
Like the other two charts we looked at, Pluto is conjunct Jupiter, the ruler of the 2nd house. Again, this is a very important indication of a huge financial change at some point in this person’s life.
Transit-wise, Pluto was transiting their 2nd house when they won the lottery. Also, the transiting North Node was conjunct their natal Mercury!
This winner’s chart is another great example of a ‘lucky’ natal chart.
The ruler of their 2nd house, the Moon, is opposite Pluto, which indicates a huge financial change at some point in this person’s life.
In addition, Jupiter is also located in their 8th house, which indicates abundance and luck in the house of unearned wealth and gifts.
Also, the ruler of their 11th house, Neptune, is in the 5th house, and is conjunct the South Node. This is another indication that this person’s fate has much to do with finances and wealth.
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.
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.
