25 – 30: Extremely lucky

Lucky you! Most of the time, things go your way. That’s because your open mind and easy going nature help attract luck. It’s not that you expect to be lucky – but you don’t expect to be unlucky either! You also know that luck isn’t just about winning. It’s about appreciating what you have, including your good health and the love in your life. And you do.  

20 – 24: Frequently lucky

You have a casual attitude to luck or the lack of it and just take things as they come. Others probably see you as more lucky than you see yourself. You may not win every competition but you may well be lucky in love and have good health. You also certainly also win your fair share of competitions.

14-19: Occasionally Lucky 

You may not be as lucky as you’d like but you are never ungrateful for any windfall that comes your way. The occasional win is enough to keep you going. You might want to try some more positive thinking or some affirmations to attract more luck and build on what you already have.

10-13: Rarely Lucky 

You don’t win often but then again, you don’t gamble much either. Practical and straightforward, you prefer to hold on to what you have. You tend to see the world in a black and white way and can be dismissive of frivolity. Don’t be afraid to take a chance every now and then – on love as well as luck!
