Some people believe that both live and online casino games are based on pure luck and chance, while others think it’s possible to beat the odds with a good strategy and some research. Then, there are the folk who pay close attention to gambling horoscopes to guide their decisions and what their star signs could mean for their gameplay and chances of winning.

If you play poker online, you may be aware that each star sign is said to have a particular poker personality and gaming strategy. This can be useful if you’re learning how to play poker and want to see how this wisdom can impact your playing style. Similarly, if you’re an experienced player, you could use this knowledge to gain an advantage over your opponents based on their different playing styles. Here’s a closer look at the gambling horoscope and how it relates to types of poker players. 

What Does Your Star Sign Say About Your Poker Game?

So, does your star sign affect your luck? Some will say that there are lucky zodiac signs, but it’s more about how star signs impact the personality of poker players rather than sheer luck. Given that there are 12 star signs and associated personalities, it’s widely believed that this extends to poker gameplay. Astrology can guide those who believe in it and help them understand how their personality traits influence their responses to situations. In short, your personality can impact your approach to poker games and your overall playing style.

Of course, there are both advantages and disadvantages to some of the attributes linked to each star sign’s poker personality and gameplay. Still, some believe awareness of them could give you the upper hand. 

Aquarius the Maniac (January 20–February 18)

Some people find poker players with this star sign intimidating. Known to be aggressive and independent, the Aquarius don’t follow the crowd and like to think for themselves. Whether playing live or online poker, being born under this star sign can give you an advantage because your opponents won’t always know what to expect from you. That said, the tendency to overplay a hand could be a disadvantage.

Pisces the Loose Aggressive I (February 19–March 20)

Creativity, emotion, and aggression are characteristics associated with Pisces poker players. Some might say they’ve mastered the poker face since opponents have difficulty guessing their next move or strategy from their opening hands. This star sign’s downfall is the tendency to dismiss defeat and continue playing, often leading to their financial downfall. 

Aries the Tight Aggressive I (March 21–April 19)

Aries poker players are typically very analytical, strategic, and calculated in their gameplay. However, because of their tight playing style, they can be easy to read and predict. During live or online poker tournaments, attentive opponents can quickly work out their approach to the game.

Taurus the Calling Station (April 20–May 20)

Taurus players tend to take a relatively passive approach to poker and do not prioritize putting on a poker face. They can be identified as the calm and collected ones at a poker table with aggressive and tight players.

Gemini the Loose Aggressive II (May 21–June 20)

With this group, you get the best of both worlds. Gemini players pay attention to strategy, tactics, and instincts. They can adapt to different situations and often are difficult to read. So they could be the luckiest zodiac sign out there in this respect. Practicing self-control and restraint is something Gemini players do pretty well, potentially giving them an advantage over more impulsive players, whether playing poker games online or in person.

Cancer the Tight Aggressive II (June 21–July 22)

Sometimes, simplicity and following your intuition can give you the upper hand in a game of poker — that’s the approach Cancerians take. Once you understand the fundamentals of poker, you will see there’s no point in trying to change the core principles of the game. Cancerians typically play a tight and aggressive game, which can sometimes be quite easy to predict.

Leo the Maniac II (July 23–August 22)

Some say this is the star sign that thinks very highly of itself, and it’s evident in their game style. Leos are often the life of the party and the center of attention. Although their tendency to overplay some hands puts them at a disadvantage, they can be difficult to beat because of their aggressive play.

Virgo the Tight Aggressive III (August 23–September 22)

A keen eye for detail and an analytical mind put Virgos a step ahead of their opponents in games. If playing against very present opponents, it can become quite easy to predict a Virgo’s next move and strategy because of the expected tight and aggressive playing style they lean towards.

Libra the Loose Aggressive III (September 23–October 22)

Libras can be carefree and lose focus during a poker game, but this doesn’t mean they don’t go all in when they give their full attention. Libras are artistic and often play poker for the social aspect, making reading them a bit problematic. Opponents may assume a bluff, even when that’s not the case, which they can use as an advantage. Knowing when to fold in poker is something that Libras could improve on to avoid financial ruin.

Scorpio the Loose Aggressive IV (October 23–November 21)

As typical loose-aggressive players, Scorpios can be difficult to read because of their unexpected and various starting hands. Decisiveness and commitment are the two main reasons why Scorpios stick by their decisions and strategy once they’ve started playing. Although analytical and aggressive in their gameplay, they should accept defeat when faced with it and avoid financial ruin. 

Sagittarius the Tight Aggressive IV (November 22–December 21)

Players can easily spot a Sagittarius player and their strategy because of the predictiveness of their tight and aggressive play. However, they tend to have restrictions on good starting hands, which can be advantageous. A Sagittarius player is known to be fun yet serious, adventurous, and focused.

Capricorn the Loose Aggressive V (December 22–January 19)

Like the other loose-aggressive players, the Capricorn is disciplined, analytical, and calculated in their gameplay, making them ones to watch out for. Not known to be easily adaptable or flexible, this could be both advantageous and disadvantageous. They may have the upper hand where decisiveness is vital but at a disadvantage in cases where adaptability is needed.

Star Signs and Game Compatibility

While not everyone believes in lucky charms, that there are lucky days to gamble, or that your star sign can influence your luck in poker, many people do. For those who trust in the gambling horoscope above, here are some of the games that are most compatible with the different star signs:
