5. Tell us more about lucky horse shoe?
The horse shoe is considered very lucky and used to be fixed in many homes/ shops/ offices to protect and attract good fortune for the family residing inside or for the prosperity in business. As with many superstitions, there are contradictions to be found with the beliefs associated with the horse shoe. For instance, many believe that to fix it with the ends pointing upwards is good luck as it acts as a storage container for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down, is bad luck as all the good luck will fall out.
Horse shoes were also considered lucky because they were made by blacksmiths, which is also considered a very lucky trade. Because they worked with elemental fire and magical iron, they were thought to have special powers. It was believed that a blacksmith could heal the sick and if a couple was married by a blacksmith, their marriage would be a happy one. Their work with horses also brought them much power and prestige, not just because they made the lucky horse shoe but also because they were the keepers of the Horseman's Word (the basis for the movie, The Horse Whisperer.)
Horse shoes were originally made from iron, which may also account for the superstitions that are associated with this object. Iron was considered magical because it was able to withstand fire and was much stronger than other metals. The superstitions for iron are thought to originate in prehistoric times. It was used as a charm to ward off evil spirits & also to protect wealth from evil-eyes and bad times.
Another aspect of the horse shoe that added to it's good luck was traditionally found lucky if it is 7cm x 7cm in size. Since ancient times, the number seven was considered very important. Life was divided into seven ages; a rainbow has seven colors; astrology once held that seven planets made up the universe; there are seven deadly sins; a seventh child was thought to have special powers; there are seven days in a week; the moon changes from one phase to another every seven days; and a long-held belief states that the body goes through a radical change every seven years (saath janam). So, poorva janma karma also gets purified and corrected for goodness, through lucky horse shoe.
