The Unlucky Number of Each Zodiac Sign: Find Yours!

By Eugenia May 07, 2021
Everyone knows that there are some unlucky numbers: in the west, people believe that number 13 can bring unluckiness (chances are that you’ve visited a building without a thirteenth floor or boarded a plane without a row 13). In some cultures of Asia, people are scared of numbers 4 (like in Japan), 9, or 17. Superstitions exist all around the globe, but the numbers associated with bad luck tend to vary from one place to another. This information is usually known to natives but foreigners may be surprised by local superstitions. “What?! What’s so unlucky about the number 359?!”

What is your unlucky number?


March 21 - April 19

Aries native, be very afraid because your sign’s unlucky number is 7 – if you have been thinking this was your lucky number your entire life, it’s time to reconsider. In fact, seven is the lucky number of Cancers, so if you have any friends who are natives of this sign, go tell them. And remember: avoid number 7 at all costs! If it means avoiding Cancer natives, so be it. Sometimes sacrifices are just necessary. If you want to know your lucky number, too, read about it here.

April 20 - May 20

Taurean, you’re an earthy, serious creature – your no-rubbish attitude is remarkable. Everything you do seems monumental and significant, even if you’re just making a cup of coffee or baking a cake. Your successes are as monumental as your failures – that’s why your unlucky number just has to be monumental as well. 359. Yes, that’s right. You probably don’t see this number too often, Taurean, so there’s no need to worry about it. So, what’s your lucky number then? Read about it here!


May 21 - June 20

Gemini native, your unlucky number is 8 – its shape suggests themes of repetition and infinity, and these things are probably too boring for your dynamic and passionate sign. That’s why the number is not really fond of you. If you are planning to visit China, you probably should think of a different destination because the number 8 is considered to be a bringer of luck and prosperity in this country. Think about visiting India instead, because the number 8 is believed to be a relationship and peace breaker by Indians – low chances to run into it there. To find your sign’s lucky number, read this.


June 21 - July 22

Cancer native, your unlucky number is 4, which also happens to be the most hated number in Japan. The Japanese see the number as unlucky because it’s very similar in pronunciation to the word ‘death’ (shi) – in fact, it’s true for several Asian languages and cultures. 4 is considered so bad by some that it is left out in things such as seat numbers, floors, and sports teams. As a Cancer native, you will probably find common ground with the Japanese because your sign is advised to avoid the number at all costs: its energy that is associated with routine is extremely harmful to your intense and emotional sign.

July 23 - August 22

Majestic Leo, as the king of the Zodiac, you must have an unlucky number that is as royal as you are – that’s why your bad number is 13, the king of bad numbers. It is the most common unlucky number across different countries, and fearing Friday the 13th is something universal at this point. Why is that? There are several theories to this, most of them relating to religion. The last supper had 13 people and it is said that Judas was the 13th to sit at the table. If you have been afraid of this number your entire life, well, you should be.


August 23 - September 22

Virgo native, your bad number is 9, which is associated with feeling the sufferings of others. It is considered unlucky in Japan and the reason for this is very similar to the number 4 (shi) except instead of sounding similar to death it sounds similar to torture or suffering. Your sign is probably just too empathetic and sensitive to deal with such a brutal number, that’s why it’s better for you to avoid it at all costs!

September 23 - October 23

The number 0 is not a fan of yours, Libra, because it is often associated with nothingness and emptiness, and you can’t stand it. Your life and everything about it needs to be full of meanings, emotions, harmony, and balance. That’s why zero is the unlucky number of your sign. This number is too cold and indifferent for such a charming and kind-hearted Zodiac sign, so make sure to avoid it!

October 24 - November 22

The number 14 is usually associated with curiosity and wit but looks like the number is not intense enough for your sign, which is, because of its incredible passion and power, often mistaken for a fire sign (in fact, Scorpio is a water sign – but it’s extremely emotional and passionate). If you don’t want the number’s ‘weak’ energy to affect you, make sure to avoid it at all costs! And another thing: you have a lucky number, too! Read about it here.


November 23 - December 21

Admit it, Sagittarian, sometimes you can be careless – and the number 1 can’t stand this trait of yours. That’s why 1 is your unlucky number. It urges you to make dramatic changes in life and doesn’t let you be yourself. Sagittarius natives need freedom and the ability to spread their wings in order to be truly happy and satisfied. If you don’t want the strict and somewhat abusive energy of the number 1 to affect your life, make sure to avoid it.


December 22 - January 19

Capricorn native, your unlucky number is 3 – it’s just too dreamy for you. You’re one of the most hardworking signs of the Zodiac and you’re focused on achieving your goals. Daydreaming is a foreign concept for you. If you don’t want the number’s dreamy energy to affect your life and make you lose your focus and determination, make sure to avoid the number! One more thing: your sign has a lucky number, too! You can read about it here.

If you’ve been afraid of the number 13 your entire life, you are right, because 13 is your Zodiac sign’s unlucky number. While your lucky number 31 (you can read about it here) symbolizes order in finances, intelligence, loyalty, and peace, the number 13 is associated with everything that affects your sign negatively. It can bring disorder and upset the balance, so you will do well to try to avoid the number!

Piscean, your ‘bad’ number is 44. 4 is considered unlucky in some Asian countries (in Japanese it is pronounced as ‘shi’, and the word for death is very similar in pronunciation to it). The number 44 is associated with routine and affects your sign’s dreamy essence in a negative way. You will do well to avoid 44 and focus on your lucky number instead: read about its meanings and symbolism here.
