Insects Known To Bring Luck

Lucky Bugs?

1. Crickets

A Cricket on the hearth has been a sign of household luck for thousands of years.

This belief could stem from prehistoric times, when a Cricket's chirping provided a kind of companionship.

In China and other Asian countries, the cricket served as a watchdog: at any sign of danger, the chirping will stop. In the Far East as well as across Europe, it is considered very bad luck to kill a cricket, even by accident.

Almost every Native American tribe believed the Cricket, a bringer of luck, and they thought that imitating it's chirp was disrespectful.

Images of Crickets appear on charms and amulets, particularly those intended to ward off the evil eye, in ancient cultures of the Middle East and Europe.

2. Ladybugs

The Ladybug is considered a harbinger of good luck and prosperity. It shall free you from day to day problems. Wearing a Ladybug amulet or having a live one land on you will brighten your day, give you patience with those around you, and most importantly, lessen your burdens.

Killing a Ladybug is considered bad luck.

If one lands on you when you are ill, it takes any illness away.

If a Ladybug lands on your hand and then flies away, it said to be good weather on the following Sunday.

Spots: If a Ladybug lands on the hand of a recently married woman, the number of dots on its back, is the number of children she will have. The number of spots on a Ladybug can also indicate the number of happy months that are ahead. And, folklore also suggests, if you catch a Ladybug in your home, count the number of spots, that's how many dollars you'll soon find.

3. Dragonflies

Dragonflies are another lucky insect.

As a creature of the wind, the dragonfly represents change. As a creature of the water, they represent the subconscious, or "dream" state.

Other symbolic meanings associated with dragonflies, are prosperity, strength, courage, peace, harmony and purity.

4. Scarabs

Scarabs date back to Ancient Egypt, when Scarabs were considered good luck beetles.

As a symbol of the rising sun and a protector from evil; the Scarab, is also a symbol of rebirth, regeneration and transformation.

Nature's Good Luck Signs

Ancient Folklore

5. Acorns

In Norse folklore, both the Acorn and its bearer, the oak tree, bring good fortune.

The Vikings associated oak trees with Thor, the god who created thunder and lightning with his great anvil and hammer. Because the tree attracted lightning, it was sacred to Thor. Thus they believed that the Acorn, the fruit of the oak tree, was always spared the god's wrath, and so they began putting a lone Acorn on their windowsills to protect their houses from lightning's wrath.

6. Rainbows

Rainbows are considered lucky, because we all know, if we find the end of the Rainbow, there will be a pot of gold.

7. Eggs

In traditional folk religion, the Egg is a powerful symbol of fertility, purity and rebirth.

It is used in magical rituals to promote fertility and restore virility; to look into the future, to bring good weather, encourage the growth of crops and protect both cattle and children against misfortune, and ward off the evil eye.

In England, a gift of a white Egg is considered lucky, but a brown Egg, not only brings luck, but happiness as well. -(The Encyclopedia of Religion, 1987, p.37,"Egg")

Icons Symbolizing Luck

Superstitions and Legends

18. Chimney Sweeps

A Chimney Sweep is a sign of good luck, wealth and happiness.

The Chimney Sweep is said to be "the ultimate bringer of good luck".

One legend from old England says that one day King George was riding his horse in a royal procession, when a dog suddenly ran from the crowd, barking and nipping at the King's horse. The horse reared, and to the horror of the crowd, almost threw the King! A lone figure, dressed in rags and filthy, stepped into the road, caught the horse's halter and calmed the animal; a chimney sweep had saved the King!

Lucky Objects

Tokens of Luck

22. Dream Catchers

Dreamcatchers, from Native American culture, are considered good luck, because they catch the negative images from dreams. See The Legend of Nokomis (above)

23. Red Chinese Lanterns

These Lanterns are a symbol of luck in the Chinese culture.

24. Horseshoe

A Horseshoe symbolizes good luck, power of evil, good fortune and fertility.

Horseshoes have associations with the strength and dependability of the horse, and, in an upright position, it is also symbolic of the moon. Pointing downwards, it is symbolic of the womb. To the Greeks, it symbolized the crescent moon which was regarded as a symbol of fertility.

The Horseshoe protects one's house and land, to keep strangers away, when hung up on the wall of a home or above a doorway. The "U" shape will hold good luck inside forever. This tradition may stem from the 10th century Saint Dunstan. He trapped the devil using a Horseshoe and from that point on the devil would never enter a Christian home adorned with a Horseshoe over the door.

Some legends say, that a Horseshoe "'Pointing Up" will gather your Luck, whereas "Pointing Down" it will shower you with Luck.

25. Coins

"See a penny pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck. Leave it there and you'll despair."

Some even take the idea of luck to the other side of the coin, and believe that if the coin is face down that it's best to leave it on the ground. Luckiest of all, are Coins that are bent or have holes in them, especially if they turn up as change after making a purchase. The luck of such Coins is enhanced if they are carried in a left-hand pocket or worn around the neck.

Coins can bring luck in many ways.

- You will have good luck if you keep a jar of pennies in the kitchen.

- The first Coin you receive each day should be placed in an otherwise empty pocket and it will attract more.

- A Coin in a new jacket, handbag, or wallet will bring good luck.

- If you get pennies as change on a Monday, you will have good luck all week long.

- Many people consider it lucky to carry a Coin with their birth date.

- Some say that a Coin minted in a leap year will bring good fortune.

Coins also have a place in Feng Shui, as luck bringers.

26. A Pot of Gold

A Pot of Gold is what you will find at the end of a Rainbow, making it doubly lucky.

Lucky Symbols and Numbers

Ancient Lore

27. Nautical Star

The Nautical Star, or North Star, is seen as providing guidance, and it is a good luck symbol for sailors.

The Star of Bethlehem guided the three wise men; in the Old Testament, the starry sky symbolized the numerous children of Abraham, and gave direction to the promised land.

28. The Evil Eye

Unlike other sources of good-luck, where good fortune resides in the possession of the object itself, the power of the Evil Eye Amulet resides in its capacity to ward off the misfortune cast by the Evil Eye.

29. The Number Seven

The number Seven is considered lucky by many different cultures and religions.

In Christianity-

Seven represents self-sacrifice and higher virtue. It appears repeatedly in Scripture in such things as the seven lamps of the temple, seven wise and seven foolish virgins, and Christ's feeding of the multitude with five loaves and two fishes. The early church taught that belief in God brings seven gifts: wisdom, understanding, honor, glory, blessings, strength, and godliness.

It is believed that the seventh son of a seventh son has the power of healing and that the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter has the gift of interpreting dreams.

In the mythology of Japan, there are also Seven Gods of Fortune.

Plants Representing Luck

30. Four Leaf Clover

The Four Leaf Clover is a popular Western symbol of luck, probably due to its association with St. Patrick's Day.

Four-leaf clovers do exist, they just are not as common as the three-leaf variety. (Flora Brittanica). If you find one, it's considered good luck. Legend goes that when Eve had to leave paradise she took a four-leafed Clover along for Good Luck.

31. Bamboo

A gift of bamboo is considered good luck, specifically the Dracaena (botanical name) Lucky Bamboo; a member of the lily family that grows in the tropical Rainforests of Southeast Asia and Africa, it needs little care which makes it a perfect house or office plant.

Wish Makers

Make A Wish

32. A Wishing Well

A wishing well is a place where you toss a coin (another symbol of good luck) and make a wish.

The ancients believed that a token gift to the gods would keep the wells from running dry. They and others also believed that the gods of the sea could be kept happy if a few coins were occasionally thrown their way as a tribute.

A custom observed all over the world, says that if you look for your reflection in the water and then make a wish after throwing a coin into it, the wish will be granted. But when in Rome, remember that their sea gods will accept no less than three coins.

33. Wishbone

A wishbone is a symbol of good luck. It also is a wish maker.

Two people tug on the wishbone, each making a wish. After the wishbone breaks, the person with the bigger piece will have their wish granted.

34. Stray Eyelash

A stray eyelash is seen as a wish maker, much like the wishbone.

If a stray eyelash falls upon your cheek, place it on your finger, make a wish, then blow the eyelash away.

35. Falling Star

A falling star or a "shooting" star as it is sometimes called, grants the person lucky enough to see it, a secret wish.

Good Luck Gemstones

Do You Believe in Magic?

36. Amber

Amber is thought to be a bit of the sun with the power to bring good fortune.

The Greeks called this Amber "elektron", which gave us our word of electricity, and its power to give off sparks when rubbed may be why many people have considered it a lucky charm. Both the Chinese and the Muslims burn amber as incense as a protection against evil spirits.

37. Sapphire

The sapphire has been a symbol of good luck since the most ancient of times.

The Greeks believed that to wear the sapphire was to invite the favor of the gods.

In the ancient Middle East, this blue stone was believed to have supernatural powers. It was said to have been the centerpiece of King Solomon's ring.

In India, it has the power to bring health and wealth.

Among its other powers in other parts of the world are the ability to repel spiders, to protect virgins and to turn away envy.

38. Cat's Eye

The Cat's Eye clears all obstacles and helps one to move ahead in life. It also wards off the Evil Eye, Ghosts, Spirits and negative planetary influences.

In India, it is common wisdom that if one carries a cat's-eye stone, fortune will never diminish. Among gamblers, it is a charm of choice to bring luck in games of chance.

It protects one from unforeseen losses in business or profession, and ensures financial stability, by guarding the owner's wealth.

Luck Comes in All Different Shapes and Objects

Ancient Superstitions

39. Ankh

A symbol of eternal life, a cross topped with a loop comes to us from ancient Egypt where it was an indispensable lucky charm for the Pharaohs. The gods are often seen holding an ankh to someone's lips, this is considered to be an offering of "The Breath of Life". The breath you will need in the afterlife.

40. Axe

Axes are lucky charms that can bring success. Archaeologists have unearthed talismans in the shape of an Axe head in all parts of the world. They usually have holes in them, indicating that they were worn around the neck.

Ancient art from the Far East, pre-Columbian America, the Mediterranean, and Africa frequently depicts a double-bladed Axe to indicate power.

41.Circle

The circle is one of mankind's oldest symbols of good fortune. It stands for eternity because it is without beginning or end. It is a sign of completeness, perfection, and wholeness.

The concept gave us many kinds of lucky symbols, including rings of every description and the circular designs of Amish hex signs, not to mention the wreaths we hang on our doors at Christmas-time.

42.Crescent

Among the most powerful of all lucky symbols, the crescent is especially lucky for young children and their mothers.

In ancient Egypt, the crescent moon was the symbol of Isis, the Mother of the Gods. As its symbolism spread throughout the world, it eventually became a symbol of paradise, when represented with a star. It is particularly significant in Islam.

43. Cross

Although the cross has come to be a symbol of Christianity, it was both a religious and lucky sign for centuries before the Christian era. It has been found in parts of the world where the message of Christianity never reached. In most pagan religions, the cross represents the tree of life.

In some ancient cultures, the crosspiece intersecting the upright piece, represented a ladder that helped a worshiper to reach God. In other cultures, the upright pointed the way to heaven and the crosspiece represented earthly influences.

44. Hand

In just about every Mediterranean country, charms in the shape of human hands have been powerful symbols of good luck.

In Muslim countries, the hand is made with the thumb and fingers outstretched in honor of Fatima, the favorite daughter of the prophet Mohammad. Fatima was one of only three women worthy of entering heaven. The thumb represents the prophet himself, the first finger represents Fatima, the middle finger her husband, and the others her two sons.

The ancient Etruscans and the Greeks wore lucky amulets representing a fist with the thumb tucked beneath the fingers. Similar charms with the index finger extended were believed to have power to ward off the evil eye. Sometimes a simple hand gesture encourages good luck or helps ward off bad luck.

In many countries, but especially in Italy, the evil eye is thwarted with the so-called "devil's horn," the fist clenched with the index and little fingers outstretched

45. Heart

Charms in the shape of hearts are obviously intended to bring luck in love.

In Christianity, the heart is seen as a representation of love and wisdom. In Egypt, the heart is seen as the center of our psychic energy and were thought to have power over the influences of black magic. Islam sees the heart as the basis of thought.

46. Horn

The horn, signifies strength power and abundance. In ancient Greek and Roman mythology the horn represented the phallus.

Because of the horn's form, it is equally effective for both male and female as a sexual symbol.

Sometimes called the horn of plenty, this charm signifies future wealth and prosperity.

Like crescents, which they resemble, charms in the form of animal horns are believed to have great power over the evil eye.

47. Key

As a symbol of luck, a single key is among the most important, not to mention one of the oldest, of charms.

A key given as a gift between lovers is considered a symbol of unlocking the door to the heart. It is believed that the giver will be lucky in love.

The Greeks and Romans believed it represented the "Key of Life" and had the power to unlock the door through which prayers reached the gods. It was also used to promote remembrance of things past and foresight for things to come.

The ancients attached special significance to keys made of silver, the metal sacred to the goddess Diana. She was the protector of doorways and thresholds as well as the special guardian of mothers-to-be.

Among the Japanese, three keys tied together are considered a powerful lucky charm. They enable the wearer to unlock the doors that lead to love, health, and wealth.

According to the Gypsies of Eastern Europe, a door key with a metal ring attached will ensure a good night's sleep, if it is hung upside down over the bed. It will also prevent nightmares.

48.Ladder

Ladders have been considered lucky symbols for centuries. The Egyptians usually placed them in their tombs to help the souls of the dead climb heavenward. They also carried charms in the form of ladders, to help avoid earthly temptation and to climb to greater heights.

Ladders enter the realm of the unlucky when they are leaned against a wall to form a triangle with the ground. The same triangle is formed by an open stepladder. The three sides are believed to represent the basic family unit -father, mother, and child- and passing through it can violate the unity of the family. Others say the triangle represents the Trinity -Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- the unity of which must also never be interrupted.

There is an antidote, of course. If you should unwittingly wander under a ladder, you can save yourself by crossing your fingers and spitting three times through the ladder's rungs.

49. Triangle

In engineering, the triangle is considered the strongest and most indestructible form for structures of every description. Even before mankind began to realize this, practitioners of ancient religions found mystical significance in the shape of a triangle and frequently fashioned charms and amulets in that shape.

It was perceived as representing the cycle of life -birth, maturity and death- and as such it stood for the harmony of humans with their gods. It was considered a sacrilege to break its perfect shape.

The ancient Egyptians used this holy shape when they created the great pyramids, which many today regard all by themselves as symbols of good luck, even though they are in reality monuments of dead. The architects who designed them combined four triangles as a symbol of the coming together of the forces of earth and of heaven.

50. Wheel

The flag of modern India has Buddha's Wheel of Life as its centerpiece. It was said that Buddha himself drew such a wheel in a rice field to teach his followers that all creation is a series of causes and effects following each other like the turning of a wheel.

As a circle representing eternity, the wheel appears frequently as a lucky charm in many cultures. It symbolizes that bad luck passes and good luck rises, just as a wheel is turned.

What a truly remarkable lens! My personal charms are a little elephant (for Ganesha, who I swear saved me from drowning in the Lombok Straits) and a 4 leaf clover. Each evening I watch the bats fly over my house and cross my fingers for good fortune. One thing though, I regard the ladder, when it forms a triangle against a wall, as being of immense good luck as it's a female symbol of great power just as number 13 is the female number. Thanks for this wonderful 5* lens and I look forward to all of your work. Thanks for adding this to the All Legends and Lore group.

It is my understanding that Ganesh is also considered to bring good fortune. ChrisKelly has an interesting point about lucky socks - people consider clothing they wore or objects they had with them during a good event in life can carry a special power to bring about another good event. I find it fascinating to consider why one thing is considered to conjure up good fortune when another doesn't have the same power or - heaven forbid - an object brings misfortune. Thanks for the list: I didn't know there were so many was to bring good luck!

Excellent job! I noticed something about what you listed as well. The symbols you listed often coincide with the personalities of people I know who collect them.

My youngest loves ladybugs - You said: will brighten your day, give you patience with those around you, and most importantly, lessen your burdens. Which describes youngest to a T.

My oldest collects frogs - You said: friendship and abundance (Her teacher once described her as a quiet leader, she was able to lead people just by being a friend. She isn't quite 16, so I'll let you know on the fertility in about 10 yrs. Yikes!

I heard that it is rooted in an African belief that carrying the foot of any animal helps you to be able to flee with the speed of that animal. Rabbits are fast, and so once the notion came across the Atlantic (on slave ships) it was directly mostly upon the rabbit. I don't remember where I read that, though, or how accurate it is.

Luck is real, but naturally your luck depends on your mood. People in bad moods tends to have a worst day than people who start thier day off in a good mood. Even going to sleep on negative thoughts will result in you hurting yourself in the morning or even something worst than that!

I heard interesting anecdote about Niels Bohr (Nobel Prize winner in in Physics). It has several versions, but the main point is allways the same. Here it goes:

One day a visitor to Niels Bohr's country cottage noticed a horseshoe hanging on a wall and teased the eminent physicist about his apparent fuckingstition. "Can it be," he asked, "that you, of all people, believe it will bring you luck?" "Of course not," Bohr replied, "but I understand it brings you luck whether you believe it or not."

Neat lens! My oldest daughter loves Ladybugs so I've always been partial to them so to speak.

With that said, I didn't fully realize that Ladybugs were considered good luck. I've always been intrigued when they land on you randomly as it does seem like someone or something is reaching out to you in a good way. In fact, I was on a job yesterday and accidentally swatted away at what I thought was a bug only to realize it was a Ladybug. And, my first inclination was, "oh know, that was a Ladybug!".

Again, very nice lens and great information regarding the various good luck signs / symbols!

I had no idea ladybugs, crickets, or dragonflies were symbols of good luck. I always saw them as a nuisance! The shamrock is the one I like the most, probably the one that's most recognizable too.

The hand, that you refer to in item 44, is prevalent across the entire Middle East, including ancient Jewish culture, and not just Islamic culture and is believed to ward off the evil eye.

It is my absolute favorite symbol.

The name for this symbol is "Hamsah" from the Semitic root for the word 5, of course referring to the 5 fingers of the hand.

Many Hamsahs are shades of turquoise blue, which is a color prevalent across the Middle East, the color believed to ward off the evil eye.

Great Lens.

Great lens, lot of good work and very interesting information as to how the mind works to relate events or happenings to reminders or indicators. Which I just realized that I do the same thing. My greatest yearning it to be as close to God as I possibly can and I want to remain present in my awareness of him and his love. With an active life my mind has often wondered and that displeases me to I decided to make a small wooden cross, as I love woodworking, and that I would have this cross blessed, as I did this Easter Sunday, and then I would hang it in a place within my home where I passed most frequently and all this has been done. Still, I felt it wasn't enough and I needed a more direct reminder so what I have done is hang it low enough so that as I am passing by it lightly taps me on my head as a reminder. Every time that happens I love it and can only just smile.

Maybe I am just weird. LOL
