Astrology is based on the belief that the position of the planets and stars can determine the events of our life. We may laugh derisively at such a concept, but we cannot deny that the tidal forces of the moon strongly influence life around the seashore.
The sun, our closest star, provides the radiant energy to make our crops wither or prosper. The strength of our bones depends on the Vitamin D that is produced when our skin is exposed to the sun's rays. The destructive hurricanes that spawn from the warm currents of the sea are fed by the sun's energy. It is not surprising that many ancient civilizations, such as the Egyptians and the Mayas, revered the sun and the moon. Taken with a grain of salt, horoscopes may amuse us or provide astute insights.
The Lucky Numbers are chosen with a random number generator and are commonly used when playing lotteries and scratch-off games. The first five numbers are obtained without replacement from a set of numbers, and a sixth number is chosen from a new set of numbers. The process is similar for the Mega Millions, Powerball lottery, or Chinese fortune cookies. Your chances of matching all six numbers are approximately one in 175,711,536.
Traditionally, the Chinese used a repeating cycle of twelve animal signs for naming the years. The year in which you were born determines your sign. 1976 was the Year of the Dragon, and 1977 was the year of the Snake.
