What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Gambling Personality
A few weeks ago, I went to the casino with my friend, Susan.
We were playing a game of poker, and I got frustrated because she kept calling my bluff. I asked her how she always knew when I was bluffing because the rest of the players could not see through my poker face.
Her answer surprised me.
“You are a Pisces, so you are emotional. These guys don’t know you as well as I do, but I know how to recognize the little flickers of emotion that cross your face throughout each hand. I can read your first reaction to the cards before you force yourself to hide your expressions.”
Susan could tell that I was frustrated, so we finished our game, and she suggested that we play on the slot machines for a little while.
It gave me an opportunity to think through what Susan had said.
Once I calmed down, I realized that she was probably right about being able to recognize my “tells” better than strangers, but I was skeptical about her astrological explanation.
I have a hard time believing that the month and day that I was born has an effect on my gambling habits, so I asked Susan some more questions on the drive home that night.
She predicted that I would be skeptical, but she also explained my thought process throughout the whole night so well.
I was shocked that she knew that the slot machines would help me get my emotions under control, and she also knew that I wouldn’t be content to leave until I had at least won back the money that I had lost in poker.
After my conversation with Susan, I did some research to figure out some more about how astrology affects gambling trends.
I cannot say that I wholeheartedly believe everything about astrology that Susan does, but now I know more about how it works.
At the very least, I know enough never to play poker with Susan again!
Before I explain everything that I learned about each of the Zodiac signs, let me first give you a little bit of background information about astrology in general.
A Little Background on Astrology
First of all, I have to admit that I do not claim to be an expert in astrology. I have done some research and read enough to have a basic understanding of the signs, but I do not know enough to write an actual horoscope.
Instead, this will give you some information about the personality traits that affect each sign. You can take it with a grain of salt and decide how much these details matter to you personally.
There is so much more to astrology than I initially thought! Most people know that they have a star sign that is based on where the sun was in its planetary cycle when they were born. That star sign is used to describe multiple personality traits.
One of the things that I didn’t know is that there are fire, water, air, and earth signs. For example, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are fire signs, so they will have some personality traits in common.
Astrologers do not focus solely on where the sun was when you were born. You also have a moon sign that explains some of your underlying characteristics, like how you process emotions.
Your rising sign, which is the zodiac that was on the Eastern horizon when you were born, explains how other people see and describe you.
Furthermore, astrologers track the current movement of the sun, moon, and planets to make predictions about the present and future.
For example, a lot of people talk about Mercury or Saturn being in retrograde. Retrograde occurs when a planet appears to be moving backward in the sky because the Earth’s orbit is moving faster than theirs is.
Retrograde is supposed to be a sign of negative experiences and confusion. This concept stems from ancient astrology, but the ease of the internet means that people are turning to a retrograde as a scapegoat more often now than they used to.
You might choose to learn more about astrology and even pay attention to retrogrades and your rising sign. It might be a good way to predict which casino nights will be less fortunate than others.
However, I admit that I am an amateur astrologer at best, and the position of the planets is constantly changing.
Also, this page is a gambling blog, not an astrologically correct horoscope. So, this blog is going to focus on your sun sign in particular. What you choose to do with this information is up to you!
Here is some information about how your sun sign might affect your gambling trends and habits.
Casino Games That Appeal to Aries Passionate Nature (March 21st-April 19th)
People who are born during this time frame tend to be aggressive and competitive, so they are drawn to fast-paced games that allow them to compete against other players.
They are also adventurous, so they are not afraid to take their chances on side bets that include more risk.
Sports betting, daily fantasy sports betting, and poker are the games that most Aries players will be drawn to. They appreciate that they can use strategy, research the odds, and take advantage of their competitive nature to increase their chances.
If you are an Aries, you are intuitive, so you can use that to your advantage.
But you can also be impulsive when you get caught up in the excitement, which can lead to losing far more money than you anticipated.
Everyone should follow bankroll management habits, but it is especially important for the passionate fire signs, like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
Best Casino Games for Taurus Gamblers (April 20th – May 20th)
The symbol for Taurus is a bull, and people in this sign are often considered stubborn and “bull-headed.” But the reality is that they are cautious and like to be in control.
When it comes to money, they are conservative and careful, so most people would assume that they don’t want to gamble at all. However, if the odds are right, they will see it as an opportunity to grow their money, so they can enjoy gambling as long as they feel like they are in control.
Baccarat, craps, and roulette are games that can interest a Taurus because they offer even-money bets or bets with a minimal house edge.
Any game with fixed odds is going to allow the Taurus gambler to maintain their sense of influence and constraint while also giving them an opportunity to enjoy frequent payouts.
If you are a Taurus, you are patient and persistent. You can use that to your advantage when you play card games because you are willing to wait for the odds to change long after the other players give up.
Sometimes, you might find the casino atmosphere to be far too noisy and chaotic. Online gambling offers you an opportunity to play your hands without the hectic environment and gives you a greater sense of control.
Fast-Paced Casino Games for Geminis (May 21st – June 20th)
People born as Geminis tend to be lively, intelligent, spontaneous, and in the center of the action. They are fun-loving, curious, and agile. Sometimes, Geminis struggle with the fear of missing out, so they can have a hard time knowing when it is time to stop gambling.
As a gambler, Geminis are drawn to fast-paced games like craps and baccarat. Craps games tend to be the liveliest spot in a casino, so Geminis are naturally drawn to these games, especially when it is their turn to be the shooter.
However, they also get bored quickly, so they like games that they can stop and leave at any time. Most Geminis will hop from one casino game to the next in their constant search for the next party.
Most Fitting Gambling Options for Cancers (June 21st – July 22nd)
If you are a person born under the sign Cancer, you are likely to seek comfort and enjoy the simple life. You are a domestic homebody who prefers to stay at home and live life on his own terms over going out to party with the Geminis.
In addition, you are intuitive and emotional, which means that your predictions are usually correct.
All of the lights, sounds, and actions of a casino might be overwhelming or draining for a Cancer. As a result, online gambling is the perfect choice for a Cancer because you can stay at home while you enjoy casino games or sports betting.
Cancers do not prefer one type of game over another as much as they are sensitive to their environment.
Thanks to technology, you can experience every casino game through an online platform. You might want to try sports betting or esports betting because you are so good at making predictions.
Another good option for people born under the sign of Cancer is live dealer gambling. This format allows you to interact with a real person, in real time, while still enjoying your home-based atmosphere.

Exciting Gambling Options for Leos (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Leos love to be the center of attention, but only when they are showing off something that they are good at! They are often described as flamboyant, adventurous, and unafraid of taking risks.
It is in their nature to be competitive, and they especially want to experience the limelight when they win.
Casinos with flashy lights, delightful noises, and constant competition were made for Leos! You will most likely enjoy any type of gambling, especially if you are good at it.
Tournaments and bingo offer exciting opportunities to show off your skills, earn a grand prize, and get the attention of everyone around you when you win.
My friend Susan that I mentioned at the beginning of this post is a Leo. She loves winning and used what she knew about me through our friendship to help her win.
How Virgos Can Find the Best Casino Games to Suit Them (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Most Virgos are rational and responsible, so gambling is not their favorite hobby. However, they are also analytical, strategic, and enjoy systematic problem-solving.
If Virgos can find a game that allows them to use their skill sets without relying so much on luck, they can be very successful gamblers.
Blackjack is the best game for most beginner gamblers, but especially for those that are Virgos, because it has easy to learn straightforward strategies that can actually help you win.
Virgos are not willing to take a lot of risks, so they have to know that they can increase their odds of winning.
If you’re a Virgo, once you are ready for a new challenge, other skill-based games like poker and sports betting are good alternatives.
Top Gambling Choices for Libras (September 23rd – October 22nd)
There are two main sides to Libras that often seem contradictory, which makes them complicated people. They are both highly logical and intellectual while also having a creative and artistic quality. Their rational trait motivates them to think through all of their options to make sure that they make the best choice.
On the other hand, their creative characteristics can make them attracted to finery and flair more than function. Sometimes these two mentalities work together, but often times, it makes it difficult for Libras to make decisions.
As a result, some Libras tend to wander around the casino aimlessly trying to figure out which game to play. Their artistic side will be captivated by the graphic design elements of modern slot machines, but their intellectual personality might get bored quickly.
For Libras, I recommend starting with some skill-based games, like blackjack or poker, to put your keen logic to the test.
Once you get tired of continually assessing your own strategies, head to a well-designed slot machine for a break.
Skill Games and Jackpots for Scorpios (October 23rd – November 21st)
If you are a Scorpio, you are smart, mysterious, and confident in your own abilities. Unlike the wandering Libra, you can make a quick decision without ever second-guessing yourself.
You are also probably skeptical of the people around you, and your ruthlessness toward a competitor can be unnerving.
In both life and gambling, you play your cards close to your chest, refusing to let people know the real you until you discern that they can be trusted.
Scorpios are gamblers at heart because they love the thrill of the game itself, no matter whether they win or lose. Their secretive demeanor and distrust of other people lend itself to an incredible poker face because they don’t want to give anything away.
Scorpios can enjoy any casino game, but they are drawn to higher risks with bigger possible prizes like slot machines and lotteries.
Because a Scorpio never questions their own decisions, they can have a hard time knowing when to stop gambling, so they should plan ahead to give themselves particular limits.
Thrilling Casino Games for Sagittarius Gamblers (November 22nd – December 21st)
Those of you who are born under the sign Sagittarius are adventurous, and you seek variety and experimentation. You prefer to always be on the go, and you get bored quickly.
Sustained concentration is the enemy of your version of fun because you prefer to be people of action!
When it comes to gambling, you will never pick one game and stick with it, so a land-based casino with dozens of options is the place for you. Las Vegas or Atlantic City is even more exciting because you can try out different versions of the same games at a number of casinos, and you will enjoy the thrill of experiencing as many environments as possible.
You will usually prefer simple games that don’t require learning complicated strategies. More importantly, you gravitate toward games with a lot of options, like roulette.
Intellectual Gambling for Capricorns (December 22nd – January 19th)
As the last of the Earth signs, along with Taurus and Virgo, Capricorns are people who are stable and predictable. They are ambitious because they want the best things in life but are practical enough to know that they will have to work to get it.
Capricorns do not believe in luck, they do not take risks without calculating the outcomes, and they appreciate simplicity.
Because of their responsible and pragmatic personality, Capricorns are not especially drawn to gambling. However, when they do gamble, they prefer simple games where they can use their intellect to sway the odds.
The only reason that a Capricorn would choose to gamble is that they believe that the potential outcome is worth the risk. Their disciplined and persistent nature will pay off with strategy games.
Baccarat is a favorite casino game for Capricorns, but they also enjoy blackjack, poker, and sports betting.
Logical Casino Games for Aquarius (January 19th – February 18th)
All of the air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are complex, but none more than Aquarius. They are both unpredictable and logical, often switching between eccentric and calculated from one moment to the next.
Most people born under Aquarius are open to all possibilities, but they also think through every decision carefully.
When they are gambling, people who were born under Aquarius enjoy all varieties of games, and they especially enjoy interacting with others. They thrive on games like poker and blackjack because those games allow them to apply strategies while also giving them a chance to relate to other players.
If an Aquarius does choose to play slot machines alone, they should seek progressive jackpots that provide them with an opportunity to win big at a moment’s notice.
How Pisces Can Find Their Best Casino Games (February 19th – March 20th)
The final sign in the zodiac is Pisces, and they are often misunderstood. Pisces are intelligent and intellectual, but they are also in tune with their emotions. They often lack confidence in themselves, feed off of others’ reactions, and make decisions based on how they feel in the moment.
Their intellectual and responsible side makes Pisces worry about the long-term consequences of gambling. They cannot be flippant with their finances, so they stay away from games of chance.
On the other hand, they struggle with skill-based games because they make emotional decisions that can poorly affect their odds of winning.
Baccarat, craps, and roulette are the best games for Pisces because they can enjoy the simplicity of the game while also playing conservatively.
If you are a Pisces, you are probably already aware of your tendency to wear your heart on your sleeve, so poker games are challenging for you.
Be mindful of your own emotional state when you choose to gamble. Poker is for those times when you are feeling ready for a challenge, while slot machines are better for days when you are questioning yourself.
You probably already have your own opinions about astrology in general. Most people are either wholly skeptical or fully convinced when it comes to the power of horoscopes.
No matter where your opinion lies, learning about the personality traits that you exhibit can only help you to become a better gambler.
The information in this post might not make you luckier, but it can certainly help you become more knowledgeable and self-aware.
