It’s often said that you should take the work of astrologers and tarot readers with a pinch of salt, but sometimes, they can get it eerily right.
The famous astrologer – whose real name was Margaret Lake – sadly passed away (9 March) today following a short illness.
The prediction made by the late astrologer, who died at the age of 80, claimed that anyone born between 23 July and 23 August would ‘take a journey towards her soulmate’ today.
But what makes this particularly crazy is that Meg’s real-life soulmate actually died 46 years ago in a car accident.
Meg never married after the ‘love of her life’, Nigel Moores, died in a 1977 crash in the south of France, aged just 39.
It also appeared that she had also predicted his existence in her life when she was just seven years old, having claimed that she would become engaged to a wealthy man.
At the time of his death, Moores was worth £9 million.
The final reading read: “It can be the most routine of routine journeys that takes you towards your soulmate – and you may not realise this straight away.”
Needless to say, Meg, who was born on 27 July 1942, was a Leo.
The final horoscope added: “The emotional warmth of your chart is a wonderful thing to savour, so don’t rush. If you’re in love, partners can learn from each other, this shouldn’t be a one-sided process.”
Meg’s mum, Millicent Howard, said that she never got over his death because no one else came close.
“They were always holding hands and kissing,” she revealed.
“She thought he was the man her horoscope had predicted when she was a child.
“She was very upset when he died. I believe he is the reason she never married. She is still looking for another Nigel.”
The astrologer, who found fame thanks to her uncanny National Lottery predictions, was admitted to hospital last month to receive treatment for the flu.
But she passed away at 3.45 am today in St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London.
Her agent, Dave Shapland, told the Sun: “Without any question, she was Britain’s most famous astrologer by a million miles.
“Nobody came close to Meg in that respect. She was followed by millions in this country and also around the world.
“She even became part of the English language – if a politician, somebody from showbiz or ordinary people in the street are asked a tricky question they will say ”Who do you think I am, Mystic Meg?’
“It shows what an impact she made.”
