Mystic Meg

Margaret Lake, popularly known as Mystic Meg, died at the age of 80. She appeared on the National Lottery in the 1990s and has written horoscopes for the Sun for over two decades.

According to the publication, Lake passed away in the early hours of Thursday morning after being hospitalized for influenza last month.

Her agent, Dave Shapland, stated, “By a million miles, she was the most recognized astrologer in Britain.

“No one could compete with Meg in that regard. She was followed by millions of people in this country and around the globe.

“She even became part of the English language; whether a politician, someone from show business, or an average citizen is asked a difficult question, they will respond, ‘Who do you think I am, Mystic Meg?’

This demonstrates the impact she had. Uri Geller, an Israeli-British television celebrity, led the social media tributes to Mystic Meg, remarking that she was “so recognizable by name and image.”

“The prototypical seer who offered intrigue and mystery to millions of worshippers. As did her supporters, she resisted the dismal skeptics,” he said. “Much love and positive energy for your journey forward, Meg.”

Victoria Newton, an editor of The Sun, stated, “This is dreadful news. We have lost an important figure.

Mystic Meg has been a must-read column for over two decades, establishing her as Britain’s most recognized astrologer.

She was a true expert whose advice helped our readers every day, as seen by the mail she received.

Born in Lancashire in 1942, Lake is arguably best known for hosting Mystic Meg Predicts on the National Lottery on BBC One from 1994 to 2000.

Before the numbers were selected, Mystic Meg gave a 45-second reading in which she attempted to predict details about the upcoming lottery winner.

Her regular place was eliminated from the BBC’s programming in 1997, although she returned the following year for a sketch with host Bradley Walsh.

She also served as an astrologer for the News of the World until its closure in 2011, and her forecasts appeared in Australian and American media.

She utilized runes, crystal balls, the I Ching, tarot, and numerology in her practice. According to astrological charts, Mystic Meg was born under the Leo star sign.

She has also published other books over the years, including Mystic Meg’s Astrolife and Mystic Meg’s Lucky Numbers For Love Life And The Lotto.

A former Lotto rollover winner praised Mystic Meg for reminding her to check her ticket after she hid it in a cookie box next to her bed.

Mary Jones, a mother of four from Gwynedd, North Wales, who won £9.3 million in 2004, stated,

“I read Mystic Meg in The Sun, which advised me to check my lottery ticket. As I realized my wish had come true, I couldn’t believe it.”
