At some point in life and perhaps more during difficult times, we all wonder if there is an object that we can just pick up, which will change our luck for the better, right all wrongs and make all our problems disappear.
Well, there are and we aren't talking fairy tales. PowerFortunes.com is a leading astrology website, run by experts in the areas of astrology, tarot and Vedic disciplines. This is our page about good luck charms and we are here to answer just such questions.
It may not be possible to effectively explain the complex relationship between luck, fate and human life, on a single web page, but PowerFortunes.com is a website devoted to information about the many different factors that do. We encourage you to follow the links and delve deeper, you will discover a wealth of little known, but valuable information on such matters.
What are the rules of engagement in this particular instance? Exactly how would you identify a good luck charm?
"Any object or symbol that shows empirical evidence of being able to positively influence a person's fortunes, on a consistent basis, would be described as being an object that brings good luck."
Once you know what to expect from such an object, the next question would be, "Do good luck charms actually work?" and if so,
How can I find My Good Luck Charm?
The answer is not quite as simple as the question, as one must gain 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 'Talisman Secrets' webpage.
Other forms of good luck charms can be of a more symbolical nature, rely on the power of suggestion and can often be steeped in superstitious belief. Research 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.

Once a user recognises the latent positive spiritual energy of a lucky object, they allow that object to realise it's potential to do good. A good luck charm, based on positive energy may not necessarily completely alter your destiny, but this will diminish the negative effects of bad periods and help you to better exploit the benefit of good times.
Of course, in order to take full advantage of a good period, a proactive approach is required, as even in the ancient Hindu scriptures it is said that everything, including fate, is subservient to one's actions. But then again, acquiring an object that will bring you good luck, is also an action!

What are Popular Charms for Good Fortune in 2022?
As an astrology website, we often get enquiries from people who want to know which lucky charm can help them to win the lottery. It is possible to make such a recommendation and the details of how this can be done are explained in link given above. But, let's cut straight to a list of some of the time tested, luck drawing objects that people from around the world use as effective sources of good luck. Described below are some well known and not-so-common good luck charms that can be procured at little, or no cost. These examples do not have any connection with black magic or sorcery and hence, can have no adverse effects:
Perhaps the most well known and universally recognised symbol of good fortune. A common question about horseshoes is, "Should a horseshoe be placed up or down?" There are conflicting views, but for the best results, placing an upright, used horseshoe at the top right corner of your front door-frame is considered to be an invitation to good luck to enter your home. That is, the open end of the horseshoe should be placed upwards. Similarly, placing a used horseshoe in a North facing, upright position inside a building brings good fortune and increases the ambient positive spiritual energy in the building. According to Vedic Astrology, a horseshoe worn by a black horse protects against the malefic effects of Saturn or 'Shani Dev'.
The word 'Swastik' is the combination of two Sanskrit terms, 'Su' meaning good and 'Asti' meaning to happen. Hence the actual meaning of the word 'Swastik' is, 'Let auspiciousness prevail'. This sign is associated with the Hindu Goddess of wealth, 'Mahalakshmi'. There is a deep spiritual meaning to this symbol and its name, as described in ancient Vedic texts. Suffice to say, the four legs of this symbol are believed to be an invitation to positivity to approach from all four directions. A 'Swastik' bestows good fortune and prosperity, but should be placed in a clock-wise direction for the best results.
The Hindu 'Swastik' should not be confused with the 'Nazi Swastika', referred to in German as the 'Hakenkreuz', or crooked cross, which was a misguided attempted to hijack this divine symbol. This is placed at an angle and does not produce any positive energy.
Surpisingly, as this short YouTube video explains, the 'Swastik' finds a place in many cultures, both modern and ancient and is also considered to be a sacred symbol in religions other than Hinduism. You can find FREE Swastik Lockets on PowerFortunes.com!
The Vashikaran talisman, shown here increases one's powers of influence (attraction) and is a powerful love talisman, but this is not limited attracting of members of the opposite gender and is used to improve other types of relationships by giving the wearer greater powers of influence.
Very much in vogue nowadays, these are fashion accessories that serve a useful purpose. Lucky charm bracelets are very similar to lucky charm lockets, but offer greater physical contact. This can be of advantage if the material of the bracelet has therapeutic benefits, such as the rudraksh bracelet show in the figure, which also helps to regulate blood pressure.
Most of us probably spend more time travelling in our cars than we spend in our homes. Now there probably isn't a good luck charm that can help you cruise through traffic jams or turn all the traffic lights green as you approach, but there are charms that can bring you protection from accidents and mishaps. The 'Maruti Yantra' is a one such amulet, this represents lord 'Hanuman', the monkey God and son of 'Vayu', the deity who rules the atmosphere. According to Hindu mythology, 'Hanuman' possesses great physical strength, enough to move mountains. In the 'Mahabharat', a legend about an epic battle between good and evil, 'Hanuman' adorned a flag placed on the chariot of the heroic, 'Arjun'. As a result, Arjun's chariot remained unscathed at the end of the battle. We can today benefit from Hanuman protective power by carrying a keyring to which a 'Maruti' amulet is attached.
Any appropriate good luck charm can be placed in your house and this will bring about a positive influence, but there are certain fixed amulets, such as the 'Vastu Dosh Nivaran' amulet that specifically aim to increase the ambient positive energy levels, of a given location. Essentially, positive and negative energies enter a space from eight different directions and through different forms of conventional energy, you can find out more about this on our page about 'Vastu Shastra'. Ideally, we would want our living and work spaces to allow unrestricted access to positive influences and block the negative ones. However in practice, this is not always possible, or even feasible. Hence, installing amulets such as the 'Vastu Dosh Nivaran' or 'Sukh Samriddhi' will overcome unwanted influences and restore the balance of energy in favour of the favourable influences. In fact, amulets of this nature are often presented as house warming gifts.
Many people have found, through personal experience that butterflies are omens of good luck. It is thought that the gentle fluttering of a butterfly is a manifestation of evasive good fortune. A butterfly is a symbol of freedom and perfection in nature. Just as a butterfly is not born, but is metamorphosised into a perfectly symmetrical creature, ones ill fate can be transformed into good fortune. Butterflies have been associated with wandering, free souls in many different cultures. The ancient Greek word for butterfly is, Psyche which means soul, while some ancient Naga tribes of North East India believe that they are descendants of butterflies.

Crystals signify purity, as the presence of any material or impurity other than the atoms that make up the crystal lattice, show up as inclusions or alter the crystal's colour. The human head has a resonant frequency of 20-30Hz, while the human heart has a frequency of 50-100Hz. Although crystals resonate at much higher frequencies, these frequencies are very precise and crystals are thought to excite favourably at the elevated frequencies of spiritual energy produced through prayer, meditation and chanting. Hence, a lucky charm made out of such a material will increase positive spiritual energy and have greater powers. The practice of healing through crystals is thought to date back several thousand years.
In Hindu mythology, Om, also spelt AUM is believed to be the first sound to pervade through the Universe at the beginning of time. Almost all Mantras are also initiated by reciting the word 'Om'. This symbol is in fact the word 'Om' written in 'Devanagri' (ॐ) script, that is in Sanskrit. Worshippers of this sacred symbol are blessed with luck, inner peace and spiritual powers, as it is believed that to realise 'Om' is to merge with the 'Absolute' and therby attain everything.
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.
These type of talismans are usually very effective as the are prescribed according to the specifics of one's horoscope. That is, a talisman corresponding to a favourably or unfavourably placed planet in the horoscope of the concerned person, can be acquired to either strengthen or reduce that planet's effects. PowerFortunes.com provides free astrological advice for this purpose.

The number '3' has positive and negative connotations, depending on whether it is used in a positive or negative context. In a positive context this represents the divine trinity that is common to many beliefs. Three keys worn together symbolise the unlocking of the doors to health, wealth and love.
The 'Tabeez', sometimes written as 'Taweez' and also referred to as 'Kavach', is commonly used by Vedic astrologers, to remedy specific problems. In Sanskrit, 'Kavach' means shield, as these amulets are often used for protection against evil, but they can be made for any purpose. Such amulets are created by astrologers on astrologically auspicious dates, by inscribing a Vedic talisman on a thin sheet of bark, known as 'Bhojpatra'. The inscribed talisman could be a numerical grid or a geometric Vedic amulet design, or a combination of both. A collection of such grids, representing several different types of Vedic amulet, are often used. The actual design and combination of the talismans used, is only really known to the astrologer who makes the 'Tabeez'. The container may be cylindrical or rectangular in shape and can vary in size, depending on how many sheets of bark are required. These are then placed inside a silver container, usually along with some incense and holy ash or orange coloured powder, (Sindoor). The astrologer will recite the appropriate holy Vedic chants, as the amulet is made. Traditionally the lid of the silver container used to be sealed with wax, but nowadays durable superglues are also used, however care has to be taken so as to not contaminated the inner contents. Such amulets are often worn around the neck, in the form of a locket that is attached to a black thread.
