If you're anything like us, you probably follow astrology religiously (is that blasphemous?) From what's in store for your horoscope this month to how your star sign will affect your future relationships: if there's something the stars can impact, we want to know about it.

Which is why we were so interested in this latest bit of research from MailOnline and Lott. Apparently, your star sign can have an affect on your chance of winning the lottery - and it's good new for those born in February or March.

The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery prizes in 2019, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces - meaning, on average, they seem to have a higher chance of nabbing the big money prizes.

Geminis, Virgos and Aquarius came next on the list, with 9.9%, 8.9% and 8.5% of winners having those star signs respectively. The full list was as followed:

  • Pisces - 11.6% of winners
  • Gemini - 9.9% of winners
  • Virgo - 8.9% of winners
  • Aquarius - 8.5% of winners
  • Scorpio - 8.5% of winners
  • Taurus - 8.5% of winners
  • Cancer - 8.2% of winners

Admittedly, there isn't much in it between the top spots, with mere percentage increases between those star signs most likely to win the lottery and those less likely to. But still, when there's big money up for grabs, you want everything in your favour. Right?
