Winning the Lottery


Recently, I was contacted by Sue W, who wanted to know if I could rectify her natal chart. – i.e., find her correct time of birth. This process is complicated in that the astrologer has to work backward through a person’s life and erect charts for the major events. Marriage/divorce, birth of a child, a move, death of a parent, car accidents, surgeries… You get the idea.

Sue, who is knowledgeable about astrology, sent me an extensive list of pivotal life events, which included a lottery win of $150,000, back on March 19, 2016. This certainly caught my attention as did the rest of her email about this win:

“If you remember, there was a grand fire trine on March 19 that started at 9:08 a.m. and ended at 2:43 p.m., MST. I work with these types of flowing energies to buy lottery tickets. I wanted to buy a lottery ticket at exactly at 2:43 p.m., but the person ahead of me in line took a bit longer, so the Power Ball ticket was purchased at 2:44 p.m. I won 150K that night at 9 p.m. Power Ball numbers in Florida are drawn every Wednesday and Sunday at 11 p.m. your time and the process lasts about 35 seconds. If I had purchased the ticket during the fire trine (when it was exact), would I have been the jackpot winner?”

The grand jackpot for that night was $80 million.

A grand fire trine in astrology is when three planets in fire signs – Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius – form angles of 120 degrees to each other. Trines look like triangles and are considered to be fortunate aspects. On March 19 of this year, the grand fire trine involved the moon in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries.

Oddly, I’ve never used astrology to buy lottery tickets. I buy one when I’m feeling particularly upbeat and positive and have always figured your emotions, beliefs, and intentions are important at the moment you purchase. The most I’ve ever won was 20 bucks from a scratch off. So I asked Sue how she was feeling when she bought that ticket. What was her mood like? And did she pick the numbers or were the number generated by a machine?

“I felt great because I knew that I’m a fire sign Leo and that I was buying the ticket under the influence of a grand fire trine.” Her numbers were generated by a machine, she said, “which makes you wonder…”

Sue also has a grand fire trine in her birth chart.

According to the lottery site, only 4 people won $150,000 from the lottery on March 19. I’ve highlighted it in red in the chart. FOUR people. What are the odds on that?

So, now I’m really curious if there’s something to all this. Transits, the daily motion of the planets, are really about timing. When is the best time to get married? To start a garden? Get divorced? Move? Win the lottery?

I’m now going to pay closer attention to transits that portend this kind of financial good luck. Stay tuned!

And thank you, Sue!

PS I figured I would win something in Powerball’s drawing on October 16 because of what I’d learned from Sue. Sure enough, I won 3 out of 5 numbers. If I’d played a Powerball number and gotten it right, my take would have been $100. I won…drum roll!- 7 bucks, which is what Powerball pays if you win 3 out of 5 numbers and don’t have the power number.  But hey, I’m learning!
