Winning the Lottery

This article was written by Stephanie Clement on May 31, 2002
posted under Astrology

Jane (not her real name) purchased a lottery ticket on Feb. 5, 1998, got into a legal battle with the store owner where she purchased it, and settled the case on Aug. 7, 1998, with herself declared as the winner.

Can astrology predict a lottery winner?
Could Jane have predicted that she would win? Probably not, but a good astrologer could have recognized the enhanced patterns and suggested that Jane focus on her intuition and psychic abilities, that she listen to her heart or pay attention to the messages from her inner guides. Because of the nature of the aspects in the patterns, astrology would also have been able to forecast some adjustments in Jane’s life, specifically where money and material matters are concerned.

It’s a bit like driving a car. When you see a curve in the road you adjust your steering. When you are on an uphill stretch, you engage the accelerator, and when you are on a downhill section you apply the brakes. When the road is wide and straight you sail ahead. Astrology shows you the metaphorical curves and bumps in the road of life so that you can plan around them.
