We associate terms like "luck of the draw," "lucky loser," and "lady luck" with gambling, which naturally leads to the assumption that gambling and luck - or lack of it - go hand in hand. But is there more to it than that? Does your birth chart hold the key to really raking it in next time you're in a casino or playing a friendly game of poker? Keep reading to find out if your Sun Sign can help you when it comes to gambling.
Aries: You're competitive and aggressive, so you like games that are fast moving and involve more than one player - which is why sports betting is a big draw to you. Take the time to study the odds, calculate your chances, and put your money down on your well-researched choice. And, if you're feeling adventurous, lay down a side bet to make things just a little more interesting.
Taurus: Most gambling goes against your conservative and cautious nature, but you can definitely get into fixed odds gambling. You feel in control when you have the odds sheet right in front of you, and by doing additional research you can make fairly accurate predictions as to the outcome. A Taurus doesn't like to part with his or her money - and this is the safest way you can hold onto it or, better yet, add to your stash.
Gemini: You like games that are lively and keep you on your toes, so craps is your game of choice. Your natural agility helps you in your quest to expertly shoot the dice down the table to get the roll you want, and the fast pace of this game definitely appeals to your restless side. Plus, there are lots of different betting options, so Geminis don't have to risk it all to have a good time.
Cancer: With the bright lights and loud noises, casinos aren't exactly your scene. You are the quintessential homebody, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy gambling. Online gaming, anyone?! Thanks to their growing popularity, there are a number of Internet gambling options for you, Cancer, which means you never even have to leave the comfort of your own home to win big.
Leo: You love the drama that gambling provides, and your sign enjoys the flamboyant nature of casinos - the flashing lights and glitzy decor appeal to your outrageous side! And your game of choice? Bingo! The only thing better than being in a stimulating environment like a casino is being the center of attention - and when you get the winning numbers and call out BINGO in your loudest voice, all eyes are definitely on you. What better way to feel like a winner?
Virgo: As a practical and responsible Virgo, you are among the least likely of the signs to risk your money on gambling, but as long as you can find a game that lets you use your analytical skills, you might be game - especially for blackjack. This widely played banking game lets you use your advanced analytical skills to deduce if you should take a "hit" or not - and, best of all, you know when to walk away once you're ahead.
Libra: Your indecision could have you wandering around aimlessly in a large casino, but when trying to find a game that suits your sense of style, you're likely to be drawn to the elaborate pinball-esque Pachinko machines. Their artistic themes, colors, and lights appeal to your visual side, and this game really pays off for those Librans with patience - the longer you stay at one machine, the better your odds of winning.
Scorpio: Poker is your game, without a doubt. Whether it's Hold'em, Stud, or Dealer's Choice - or any other versions of this card game - as a mysterious Scorpio, you hold your cards close and trust no one else at the table. And you have the best poker face of all the signs - good luck to any of your fellow players who try to read anything from your impenetrable gaze.
Sagittarius: Travel-loving Sagittarius loves to watch the roulette wheel go round and round - and where it stops there is no way of predicting, so it's always exciting! The variety of this game with its myriad of choices - you pick your numbers, colors, or a combination of both - really appeals to your adventurous side, and the payoff can be big if you get on a roll.
Capricorn: You're ambitious but you like simplicity, which is why you love Baccarat! A simple game with only three possible results of "Player," "Banker," and "Tie," this is still a game of low probability. However, high rollers love to play this game and you do, too - persistence pays off here, and the wealthy players it attracts offers you insight into the high class world you want to belong to.
Aquarius: With your scientific, logical side you're drawn to things you can figure out. On the other hand, you also like the eccentric and unconventional, but you learn so quickly that most all gambling games appeal to you on a certain level. If you have to make a choice, you do best in games at a large table playing poker or blackjack, where you can interact with - and distract - your fellow players.
Pisces: If you find a Pisces in a casino, you'll probably find them parked in front of a colorful sea-themed slot machine! Slot machines are popular with almost everyone, but you like to find a little unassuming corner of the room, far from the excitement and glitz that the rest of the casino games have to offer, then put your bucket of coins down and see what happens. It's safe to say that, when gambling, you tend to dream big but play conservatively.
