Lucky Charms: Celtic Secrets for Good Fortune!

Lucky Charms: Celtic Secrets for Good Fortune!

There’s an old phrase “to have the luck o’ the Irish”. which is often used to describe someone that is particularly fortunate.

The Irish peoples' upbeat attitude and sense of optimism certainly seems to encourage a positive attitude in every aspect of living. Similarly, the Welsh culture also has a strong tradition of using charms to bring good luck, and in Scotland there are ancient practices that are still part of daily life today, which are meant to bring happy fortunes. Throughout Celtic heritage, there is the belief that we can all attract luck — it isn’t just a case of leaving it to fate. If you want to bring good fortune to your life as well, try carrying a Celtic charm. You might just be pleasantly surprised by the results. 

The Welsh charm to bring luck in love 

The Welsh lovespoon has a long history — the earliest example dates back to 1667 and is now displayed in a museum in Cardiff. A lovespoon is a carved wooden spoon with different symbols on the handle. They were traditionally given by a man to the girl that he wanted to be with, though it was also meant to show the girl’s father that he was capable, committed, and good at woodworking. The symbols on a lovespoon have different meanings: a cross represents a strong faith, a horseshoe is for good fortune, bells for marriage, a wheel for support and a lock for security. To get love, you first need to give it away. If you want to build a relationship with somebody new, you may consider giving them a lovespoon as a token of your affection. This charm is about showing that you are there for the long term and your intentions are pure. 

The Scottish heather for second chances 

The Scottish poet James McPherson published a cycle of beautiful and epic poems in 1760. These poems were derived from ancient Gaelic stories, passed down through the generations. One of these tales was about Oscar and Malvina. Before Oscar tragically died in battle, he sent a messenger to Malvina with a gift — a sprig of purple heather to show his true love and affection. On hearing of the death of her love, Malvina weeps tragic tears which instantly turned the blossoms of the heather white. She said, “May the white heather, symbol of my sorrow, bring good fortune to all who find it”. If you are trying to turn over a new leaf and looking for a second chance in life, it may be worthwhile to carry white heather as a powerful charm. 

The Irish four-leaf clover for luck

The shamrock (translated from Gaelic as “little clover”) is the national symbol of Ireland. The three leaves represent hope, faith and love. The four-leaf clover, a rarity in nature, is different though. That fourth leaf represents pure luck. If you want to attract the luck o’ the Irish, then try wearing a four-leaf clover charm. These are particularly beautiful if they are made out of green crystal and can be a real statement-piece to whatever outfit you are sporting.

If you need a little boost in your life, then a Celtic charm from the Irish, Welsh, or Scottish traditions can help. After all, a little good luck can go a long way!
