Everyone can use a little luck now and again, and witches are no exception. Fortunately, one of our greatest abilities is being able to create a little bit of luck for ourselves, by way of spells, rituals or even the favored lucky charm.
There are certain seemingly ordinary objects that throughout history have become known for being “lucky.” Some of these you may already be familiar with, such as the four-leaf clover or the rabbit’s foot. Others you may find as a real surprise. Today I’m going to share with you some of these common, and uncommon, lucky charms and discuss how you can use them to your advantage in spells and in creating amulets.
The Rabbit Foot
Long held in high regard as a lucky charm, the rabbit food works well for providing the owner with a quick escape from danger they face. In spell work, a rabbits foot can be used to aid in protection spells to help keep a person from danger. As an amulet, the foot can be carried on the person or included in an amulet bag.
I will be honest and state however, using a rabbit’s foot as a lucky charm means that harm must have come to the animal for the foot to have been taken. As such, I personally would recommend using a different object as your lucky charm that will provide you with the same protection.
The Four-Leaf Clover
Who among us hasn’t spent years as a child seeking out this sought after lucky charm? This rare, hard to find little leaf is known for attracting luck to the owner. For spell work, use it in attraction spells or basic luck spells. As an amulet, you can carry the leaf in a locket, or even have it made into jewelry to carry luck with you always.
Another popular lucky charm is the horseshoe. Nailing a horseshoe over your door is said to bring prosperity and good fortune to those that pass beneath and reside within the home. In spell work, place the horseshoe upon the alter when performing prosperity or money spells. As an amulet for protection, nail the horseshoe over your main doorway to your home, or one over each entryway if you prefer.
A simple key can be a powerful lucky charm. Wearing a key is known to help promote knowledge and understanding. The best way to use a key as a lucky charm is to perform a spell seeking knowledge, and anoint and the consecrate the key as a magickal tool. Wear the key on your body, such as a necklace, to experience the full benefits that it has to offer.
Heather is a plant that is known for being very lucky at making your money “grow.” It works very well in money spells to help attract money to you. As an amulet, place a piece of heather into your purse or wallet and leave it there to help make your money grow.
Snakes, Spiders and Ladybugs
It may not be hard for you to believe that a Ladybug is considered a lucky animal, but snakes and spiders! Believe it or not, snakes and spiders are very lucky creatures. As eight is signified as the number of abundance in magick, the eight-legged spider is known for being lucky in assisting with abundance of what you desire. The spider, due to it’s ability to shed and renew it’s skin is seen as a lucky charm that is beneficial for transformation and healing.
I would never recommend capturing one of these beautiful creatures to use in your spell work or charm, but you can still capture the essence of the creature by depiction. Drawing the symbol onto a stone that can be carried with you is an exceptional way to make an amulet or to use in a spell. However, in spells and rituals for healing or for transformation, you can find a piece of shed snake skin to use in your spells that will be very powerful, and cause no harm to the animal.
These are just a few of the objects that are considered to be lucky that work well when used in magick. As each charm works to provide the owner with different kinds of luck, using multiple charms in spell works or amulets can be quite beneficial. Most of these objects are very easy to find, so you should have no problem creating a lucky charm for yourself, or as a gift for a loved one. Just make sure that any item that you take and use, you provide adequate thanks for and cherish as you should.
