Mystic Meg (born Margaret Anne Lake on 27 July 1942)[1] is one of Britain's most popular astrologers and psychics, who had regular astrology columns in The Sun[2] until 2 January 2015, and, until its demise, in the News of the World.[3] She now hosts Mystic Meg’s Wheel of Destiny for Sun Bingo.[4] She came to greater public notice when she hosted what became a regular item on the first broadcast of the National Lottery draw in 1994. Her image also appears on various astrology-related books and merchandise. She studied English at the University of Leeds.

She was born in Accrington, Lancashire.[5] She once lived in a terraced house in Russia Street, in the town.[6]

From 1994 to 2000, Mystic Meg appeared weekly on The National Lottery Live in ‘Mystic Meg Predicts’ – a 45-second reading during which Meg predicted facts about the future winner.[7]

In the first edition of the News of the World for each year, Mystic Meg traditionally made predictions for the coming twelve months. These predictions were a popular feature of the paper and garnered Meg many loyal fans.

In April 2015, Mystic Meg partnered with bookmaker Gala Coral Group and was the face of their Grand National ‘You’re Guaranteed a Fortune’ marketing campaign. Images of Meg and her crystal ball featured in all of Coral’s 1,850 shops via window posters and Coral TV[8]

She also owns a number of racehorses[9] under the company name Mystic Meg Limited, which is based in Bedford.[10] The horses include Astrodonna,[11] Astronangel,[12] and Astronova[12] and other horses with celestial names.

In 2015, Meg has launched her first ever website, featuring horoscopes, personalised readings and a hotline hosted by a selection of her favourite professional psychics.[13]
