Sarah Winchester’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.

Although Winchester's biographer disputes the claim, legend holds it that, due to Winchester's obsession with the number thirteen, many architectural features of the Winchester Mystery House (such as bathrooms, windows, etc.) were constructed in numbers or clusters of thirteen.
