Here’s What the ‘Luckiest Day of the Year’ Could Mean For You, According to Your Zodiac Sign

Must read

Did you know there’s a “luckiest day of the year” — and it’s not St. Patrick’s Day?

While the Irish holiday is synonymous with good fortune, there’s an actual calendar date in which luck will arrive for almost everyone. According to PEOPLE’s resident astrologer Kyle Thomas, May 18 is considered the “luckiest day of the year” in western astrology.

This is because “the stars are aligned more beautifully than any other time in 2024,” he explains. “Luck, miracles, blessings, breakthroughs and happy news could all be yours now.”

In addition to the stars’ alignment, the Sun and Jupiter will conjunct in the sky. This is what makes this day “extremely rare,” says Thomas, noting that this phenomenal conjunction typically happens once a year.

In ancient times, Thomas says astrologers often referred to this planetary link up as “a day of miracles.” The best part about it? “All zodiac signs can use this energy,” he says.

To capitalize on the potential greatness that this day is expected to bring, Thomas says to “be strategic” rather than “waiting for what the universe plans to bring to you.”

“Take chances, start new initiatives, ask someone out, tell a loved one how you feel,” he suggests. “The big breakthrough you’ve been waiting for could be here.”

While this lucky day can benefit all zodiac signs, Thomas notes that this conjunction will take place in the fields of Taurus. Therefore, “everything” that Taurus rules — including money, possessions, wealth, the Earth, abundance and sensuality — “will have luck on its side,” he says.

Read on for what the luckiest day of the year could mean for you and your zodiac sign, according to Kyle Thomas’ predictions.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)
