The tarot cards hold special meanings, warnings, characteristics and actions that may need to be taken in order to change your course in life.

With the Wheel of Fortune as the tarot card for the week of 9-13-15, this is the week to maintain a positive and optimistic outlook, even if things have not been going your way. This may be a time when good luck will overtake the bad. You have the power to change your circumstances for the better. But remember, some things are not under your control. Everything happens for a reason, even though you may not understand why right away. Stay positive and focused on your goals and desires.

MAJOR ARCANA NUMBER 10

ASTROLOGICAL SIGN or PLANET: LEO, URANUS

UPRIGHT:
The Wheel of Fortune represents the aspect of life that is directed by forces and events you may not understand or even be aware of. In short, the card deals with chance — those occurrences that manage to alter even the most structured of lives and usurp man’s best-laid plans. While the effects of the Wheel are unpredictable, the outcome is always some form of change — for better or worse. Depending upon where it falls in certain spreads, it is usually a positive card. Trust that the Wheel will land in your favor, but do not get complacent. What goes around comes around. Keep a positive attitude and do right by other people. This could be a karmic time. The path through life is never a smooth ride down a perfectly straight highway. Sometimes you may experience hairpin turns or complete reversals of direction. The Wheel of Fortune is a strong reminder that despite your plans, the Universe has its own agenda from which you cannot escape. You really do not have control over people, places and events, but you do have control over your own actions. Adversity is a natural part of life and this card asks you not to run from it — face it head on. Always think positively and maintain an optimistic attitude.

REVERSED:
In the reversed position, the Wheel of Fortune card signifies unexpected bad luck, unforeseen events, being out of control and failure. A possible major setback or being blind-sided by something out of your control. Keep your vices in check. Challenges may be ahead. You may have to tap in to extra energy in order to solve a specific problem or affair. This is a time for patience. Things may not be going as you have planned in your life; however, as the Wheel turns your good fortune will return. Do not feel sorry for yourself. This may be a time for new positive opportunities. What may seem like a set-back may be the start of something good. Strategic planning is advised and it is not a time for taking risks. Also, this card can be a warning of impending doom, particularly in the form of a natural disaster — earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.

Four-Leaf Clover Superstition

The four-leaf clover, or shamrock, is thought of as a good luck charm in part because of its rarity in nature. It is estimated that the chances of finding a four-leaf clover are one in 10,000. The origin of the superstition dates back as far as the biblical story of Adam and Eve. It is believed that when Eve was cast out of the Garden of Eden, she took a four-leaf clover with her to remind her of the lushness of paradise. Since then, it has become a symbol of good luck and good fortune.
 
According to Irish beliefs, the superstition stems from Druid priests who used the shamrock for healing the sick, in worship rituals and to ward off evil. Prior to this, St. Patrick had found the three-leaf clover to be an extraordinary plant. In ancient Egypt, when a couple got married it was traditional to give them a four-leaf clover which was a blessing of their union and a representation of their undying love for one another.
 
Some of the beliefs surrounding the power of the four-leaf clover include the following:
 
1. Each of the four leaves on this lucky charm has a specific meaning — faith, hope, love and luck.
2. Both children and adults would hang the four-leaf clover at home to ward off evil, witchcraft and bad omens.
3. A person who finds a four-leaf clover will meet a future lover on that same day. Some people even go so far as to put the four-leaf clover in their shoe.
4. Anyone who possesses a four-leaf clover will have good fortune in any ventures they attempt.
5. The four-leaf clover is a charm that protects against evil.
6. Anyone wearing a four-leaf clover will be able to see fairies.
7. One belief states that you will only have good luck if the four-leaf clover is kept out of sight and never passed to someone else. Another one states that if your give the four-leaf clover to someone else, your luck will double.

 

So, always be on the lookout for a four-leaf clover because you can never have enough good luck!

The Ups and Downs of Horseshoes

The superstition about horseshoes is one of good luck and good fortune. It is believed that the good luck powers of the horseshoe date back to the story of a blacksmith named Dunstan and a man he believed was the devil. It is said that a man came to Dunstan and requested that he put horseshoes on his feet (hoofs). Dunstan recognized this man as the devil and nailed a horseshoe to the devil’s hoof. Seeing that the devil was in great pain, it is said that he chained him while he was in agony and only released him after the devil promised never to enter a place that had a horseshoe hung over the door. Dunstan eventually became the Archbishop of Canterbury in 959 AD and is known as Saint Dunstan.
The way the horseshoe is hung and displayed varies. Some regions of the world believe that hanging the horseshoe in an upward position (“U”) holds in all the good luck and the powers it brings. For them, hanging the horseshoe upside down meant that its powers would fall away and dissipate. However, there are others who believe that hanging it in a downward position allows all of the good luck, protective powers and good fortune to shower upon you and surround the home. If you are doubly superstitious, you might want to hang one in each position. The choice is yours.
Another belief exists that the horseshoe, because of its crescent shape, has the ability to ward off the evil eye. In ancient Europe and prior to the Chaldeans, this crescent shape represented the various moon goddesses, which were signs of protection, good luck, fertility and could protect against a curse from the evil eye.
From early times to today people still wear horseshoe charms and amulets to bring good luck. Horseshoes were originally held in place on the horse using seven iron nails, as seven was considered a very lucky number. That is why some horseshoes and/or charms are made with seven nail holes in them. It was also believed that hanging a horseshoe over one’s bed could prevent nightmares. It became a common practice to hang a horseshoe outside of the home, barn or store to ward off evil and bring good luck. The horseshoe was also used by sailors who nailed them to the foremasts of their ships to ward off evil spirits and entities from harming their ships, crew or preventing them from arriving at their destination safely.
During the middle ages, for some reason it was believed that witches had a fear of horses, especially of their shoes, which were made from iron. Because iron could withstand fire, it was also believed that it could ward off all evil spirits. It was believed that a witch would never enter a home with a horseshoe nailed to or over the door. Suspected witches who were tried and not burned at the stake, but buried upon their deaths, had horseshoes nailed to their coffins to prevent them from returning to life or resurrecting again as witches.

Last of the Three Friday the 13ths for 2012

Another Friday the 13th is almost here! Did you know that in 2012, there are THREE Friday the 13ths? The first one was in January, one was in April and the last one strikes in July. In fact, each of those dates are 13 weeks apart.

 

The following information is taken from the Psychic Library Superstition Room.

 

There is a term for a fear of the number 13 — triskaidekaphobia, of Greek origin. The term for a fear of Friday the 13th is paraskevidekatriaphobia. Across many cultures, the belief that the number 13 is evil and brings bad luck is so strong that many hotels, office and apartment buildings do not have or recognize a 13th floor, airports usually do not have a 13th gate and many people stay home on Friday the 13th.

 

The Chinese and ancient Egyptians believed the number 13 brings good fortune. The Egyptians believed in 12 stages in life toward spiritual enlightenment. The 13th stage was the eternal afterlife. In this sense, death was not a place of fear, but a place of high regard for the afterlife.

 

One theory about why this negative belief about the number 13 exists is that Judas, who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th person to be seated at the Last Supper.

 

In 1881, a group of New Yorkers set out to debunk this and all other superstitions and formed a group called the Thirteen Club. Its first meeting took place on Friday the 13th at 8:13 pm and 13 people sat down to dinner in room number 13. To get into the room each guest walked under a ladder and sat down around piles of spilled salt. Needless to say, all of the guests survived. For the next 40 years, Thirteen Clubs cropped all over the U.S., but then faded from popularity.

 

It is believed that because some people do not fly, invest or even leave the house on Friday the 13th, there is a notable loss in business transactions.
