As an astrology website, we often get enquiries from people who want to know which lucky charm, sign or symbol can help them win the lottery, or win at gambling and other games of chance. It is possible to make such a recommendation and the details of how this can be done are explained on link give above. But do good luck charms actually work? In a word - yes. However, the question one should really ask is:
The answer to this question is not quite so simple, as one must have a clearer understanding of the nature of the charm in question and how one wants that charm to work.
- Some lucky objects, such as ‘Vedic Talismans’ are able to bring good luck as a result of a combination of this positive spiritual energy, produced from their physical form, the spiritual energy imparted in them during their consecration and through the faith that is placed in them by those who possess them. The workings and beliefs behind Vedic Talismans have been described in detail on our 'About Yantras' webpage.
- Other forms of good luck charms are generally symbolical in nature and rely more on the power of suggestion. A study conducted by a British University showed that more than 30% of those who carried good luck charms felt their luck had genuinely improved! Any object could fall into this category, it could be a lucky cap, a lucky handkerchief, your favourite pair of socks, to each his own. Although there is no definitive explanation, this perhaps best explains the manner in which good luck charms work, as the common denominator, which powers both types of charms is, the faith placed in them by their users.

Placing an upright, used horse shoe at the top right corner of your front door-frame is considered to be an invitation to good luck to enter your home.

The nut of the Rudraksh tree that can be found in parts of the Himalayas, Indonesia and Malaysia. There are 38 different types. Rudraksh beads represent Lord Shiva, part of the divine Hindu trinity. This very powerful and auspicious charm bestows spiritual powers, good health, fame and material happiness. Rudraksh beads are used for making 108 bead rosaries for chanting Mantras, so as to increase the effect and power of the Mantra. Although these rosaries are a product of the ancient Vedic period, through modern science, we now know that the figure '108' is of particular relevance, as the distance between the Earth and the Sun is approximately 108 times the Sun's diameter. The Sun's diameter is about 108 times that of the Earth's. The distance between the Earth and the Moon is approximately 108 times the Moon's diameter. It is perhaps possible that the ancient sages determined that there 108 steps between our ordinary human awareness and our inner divinity. As to how they determined the distances between these celestial bodies, with such accuracy, remains a mystery.
