With St. Patrick’s Day also comes the expression “luck of the Irish.” For many people the 17th of March is a reminder of lucky charms such as the four-leaf clover, rabbit’s foot and other objects that are held dear because they hold some form of good luck.
Let this Irish luck be of inspiration to you this St. Patrick’s Day however you are celebrating. Best Mediums brings you a guide to the top good luck charms to put into action this St Patrick’s Day!
1-Four Leaf Clover
A four-leaf clover is something of a genetic rarity; the odds of finding one have been calculated at 10,000 to 1! Early Christian’s viewed the four-leaf clover as lucky because of its resemblance to the cross; however, their importance as Celtic charms has carried forward to the modern day.
This belief has existed since 600BC when Young Celtic hunters were taught first to hunt rabbits. If they were successful in tracking and killing one, its foot was given to the hunter as an amulet of good luck. It is still believed to this day that carrying a rabbit’s foot will bring good luck to the bearer, and superstition even suggests that rubbing a rabbit’s foot on the skin of a new-born baby will assure the child good luck throughout its life.
3-The Celtic Knot
The ancient Celtic knot is a traditional and effective way to bring you closer to your soul mate. Celtic sailors would give the knot to their loved ones when they returned home from the sea as a promise of eternal love. The night before St. Patrick’s Day, take two pieces of rope. Light a candle, envision your love interest as belonging to the piece in your left hand; the one in your right hand is your symbol. Tie them together envisioning the love relationship between the two of you.
The name shamrock comes from the Irish name ‘seamrog’ meaning ‘little clover’! St. Patrick used the 3-leafed shamrock in his teachings as a representation of the Holy Trinity. Those taught would carry the shamrock around with them believing it to give good luck for its representation. The custom of wearing shamrock on the day is still observed and depictions of shamrocks are habitually seen during the celebrations.
The horseshoe has always been associated with good luck because of the importance the Celts placed on their horses. In Irish weddings, a horseshoe, worn upright to catch all luck, was tucked into the bridal bouquet or sown in to the wedding gown. This tradition of wearing a good-luck horseshoe is still practiced today by brides wearing a simple charm on a necklace or bracelet but always in the up-right position so no luck falls out!
6- Blarney Stone
Tradition says that if you pay a visit to Blarney Castle in County Cork and kiss the Blarney Stone, you’ll receive the gift of eloquence and powers of persuasion, a true master of the “gift of gab.”
Whatever your plans are, as the Guinness flows and the celebrations begin, let the true magic of St. Patrick’s Day be an inspiration to you whenever you encounter troubled times.
Let the day bring both love and the luck of the Irish to one and all!
I had a reading with Teya today. I was blown away by her understanding of my current situation. She made some very positive predictions and advice. I look forward to the outcome. Teya has a lovely warm personality and it radiates in her voice. Towards the end of the reading at my request she brought through some family members who passed over. I found her descriptions and messages spot on! I would love to connect with her again. Many thanks.
