Good Luck Symbol Meanings

A bit eccentric, but dear friend of mine is obsessed with good luck symbols. He’s got troves of various good luck charms, trinkets and objects. Tabletops are dotted with lucky doo-dads, curio cabinets stuffed with auspicious knick-knacks from around the world…you name it, he’s got some kind of object to convey luck and fortune.

You could say he’s devoted a large portion of his life to amassing this treasure of good luck symbols. We talk a lot, and much of the data I write about pertaining to good luck emblems comes from our discussions.

Sometimes our discussions get into rabid debates. Bucky (that’s his name, a nick name actually because he’s always “bucking” bad luck – so everybody calls him Bucky or Lucky Bucky) thinks his luck comes from the object. The stones he carries around in his pockets, the lucky charms he has crammed in his car, his office and home….to him, these objects are the source of his good luck.

I believe we make our own luck. So, you can imagine Bucky and I have some humdinger arguments over how luck is brought about (or, sometimes I really chap his hide by debating the existence of luck at all! Poor Bucky).

End the end, we’re friends, so we always manage to make nice and play in the sandbox together amicably. And, as a result of our play, I’m inspired to write some awesome pages about good luck symbols on this site.

“Above all, he liked it that everything was one’s own fault. There was only oneself to praise or blame.

Luck was a servant and not a master.

Luck had to be accepted with a shrug or taken advantage of up to the hilt.

But it had to be understood and recognized for what it was and not confused with a faulty appreciation of the odds.

Luck in all its moods had to be loved and not feared.”
