Hi, my name is Adrian, I'm an ex-programmer. This astrology thing came from out of the blue about 20 years ago. (Or so it seemed: looking back at that weekend, it was under a load of planetary aspects to my natal Mercury). I have been trying to "crack" gambling for 3 decades, testing many different types of gambling theories and systems.
I started out as a small-town teenager trying to beat a corner-store ball-rolling game by using simple double and triple-up variations. After school, during my military service, I spun a small roulette wheel after hours for a solid two years to test different systems. I later used a program to test dozens of methods over millions of spins and hands of blackjack. After thousands of painstaking hours I also came to accept that one cannot consistently beat the cold odds that casinos offer. I started card-counting but couldn't really work with the small advantage it gives.
From there I moved to horse-racing. By studying form, breeding, jockeys, betting factors, who the trying stables are, who the punting stables are, who the crooked ones are, etc., I found that one can consistently be in the area where the money is. Furthermore, by playing in a manner contrary to that of the average punter (against the favourites where possible), receiving larger payouts when they come your way. During that time I was studying horse-form for between 1 and 5 hours a day and gambling between 4 and 6 days a week.
However, the reality of gambling only came to me in 1993, purely by "coincidence" (bad word!). I had never really followed or believed in Astrology. I mean, really, how can a planet millions of miles away influence our lives in any way? But, it so happened that the race results in those days were on the same page as the "Your Stars" column. Yes, that hazy column that's supposed to describe what kind of a day a twelfth of the population will have at a time. Thank goodness this was written by astrologer William Smith and not one of those phoney random columns that some newspapers print.
It was only after 10 years of consistently checking what "the stars" had to say whenever I won money that the truth started to dawn on me. Invariably, whenever I won any substantial amount of money, the stars said that I would have a good day. Let's say, it felt like it was about 80% of the time. It was consistently more accurate than not, and I started keeping a mental note of it. Eventually, I could stand it no more and phoned a professional astrologer, who informed me immediately that I had made a perfectly accurate observation and that this was indeed the case.
From that date I started drawing my transits by hand, following the planet movements as they formed aspects to my birthchart. It was incredible, experiencing events again and again that were somehow linked to or synchronous with the planet movements.
The rest is history. I was fortunate enough to receive a few hundred books on Astrology which I have read over the ensuing years. I say fortunate because, not only have I found a wonderfully enriching and true aspect to life that many do not even know about, but it has given me a far deeper understanding on the nature of the Universe, of myself and others.
For this reason alone I tell almost everybody I deal with about the subject. It is singularly the most helpful and enlightening gift I have received in my lifetime, and it can be yours, too.
Move past the newspaper-columns, start by following your transits, learn how to do your progressions. There is some amazing stuff going on behind the scenes.
Luckydays.tv is registered on the island of Tuvalu, a short sail north from Samoa. It has approximately 12000 inhabitants. In 1998 the prime minister of Tuvalu was quoted as saying, "We are a very, very, very, very poor country." Shortly thereafter it had some luck when it came to primary domain assignments for the various countries, receiving the .tv extension. Since then, Tuvaluans have become generally rather wealthy. For example, just to own the domain a.tv will cost you about $100 000 per annum, just to use. Last time we checked, even the domain aaaaaa.tv was taken, so you can imagine how much money has poured into the country. Unfortunately, the island is sinking due to the rising sea levels, and it is estimated that in 40 years time the island of Tuvalu will no longer exist in a natural state.
