How to Get Rid of Bad Luck

1. Be aware of things that can cause bad luck.

  • Breaking Mirrors
  • Seeing a crow
  • Walking under Ladders
  • Putting shoes on any table
  • “Jinxing” yourself (saying out loud something bad that you think will happen to you) aka. tempting fate
  • Wearing opals unless you are born in October
  • Stepping on a crack in the pavement/sidewalk. (“Step on a crack and fate will break your mother’s back!”)
  • Crossing the path of a black cat. this superstition relates from the christian hatred of paganism. In Paganism/Wicca black cats are considered signs of good luck and are a sign of a goddess’ favour.
  • When Christianity became more centralised throughout the world, the tradition of cats being good luck became bad luck as Christianity vilifies Paganism.
  • Opening an umbrella indoors.

2. Be aware of more vague superstitions;

  • Picking a penny up if it is tails up
  • Getting dressed with your left arm/left leg first
  • Seeing an owl during the day
  • Don’t knit a pair of socks for your boyfriend or he’ll walk away from you.
  • Killing ladybugs or spiders (especially money spiders
  • It is bad luck to close a pocket knife unless you were the one who opened it.
  • “Sleeping with feet towards a door will lose you your soul forevermore”
  • If an owl hoots three times in your garden.
  • Sleeping on or under a dinner table.
  • Making your bed starting with the foot will cause you to never marry.
  • Starting a venture on a Friday.
  • Killing a bee within your home.
  • Turning a loaf of bread upside down once it has been sliced will bring you terrible luck.
  • Saying the word “Pig” at sea.
  • If you ever drop a knife, picking it up yourself will bring you bad luck in money and love. You should ask someone else to pick it up for you. Supposedly comes from old-time etiquette where dropping a utensil was considered extremely rude and bending to pick it up would be the same as flipping your dinner guests a “V”.
  • To start a new venture, meet someone new, or start a relationship on Friday 13th.
  • Ivy growing on a house protects the inhabitants from witchcraft and evil.
