I just moved in September and this has perfect energy for my new place. It is also pretty perfect to give to someone who may need a little good fortune.
Originally, the story of the horseshoe superstition begins with the story of a blacksmith named Dunstan. The devil came to Dunstan and had him fit his new horseshoes. Dunstan recognized the devil and nailed a horseshoe onto his hoof. The pain allowed Dunstan to chain him and made him swear he would never enter a place that had a horseshoe hung over the door. Some believe that if guests come to a house where a horseshoe is above the door, they must leave by the same door through which they entered or they will take the luck from the horseshoe with them.
- For luck in the New Year, sleep with a horseshoe under your pillow on New Year’s Eve.

- There is luck in finding a horseshoe where the open space is facing toward you.
- Dreaming of a horseshoe will bring good luck.
- Some believe a horseshoe hung in the bedroom will keep nightmares away.
