Horseshoes are a well-known good luck symbol dating back to the time of the ancient Celts. However, it was the magical influence of the white horse charm over and above that of the horseshoe that the Celts associated with good fortune. The Celts associated the magical power of the white horse charm with the auspicious solar spirit of Jupiter (the luck planet), and they wore it to attract Jupiter’s benign influence. It was said that its wearer would become lucky in life and in all matters of the heart.
In Irish tradition, the otherworldly beauty Niamh of the Golden Hair fell in love with the Irish hero Oisin of the Fianna. Niamh travelled to Ireland on a magical white horse to declare her love for Oisin. Setting eyes on her beauty, Oisin fell madly in love and the two rode off together to Tir na nÓg. There they were married and had two sons and a daughter. In Irish tradition, Tir na nÓg is a paradise of everlasting youth, beauty, health, abundance and joy. Beauty, health, abundance and joy are said to follow the owners of the magical Wishmaker white horse charm. This is a great gift idea for anyone who has a desire for adventure and who is open to new and unique life experiences.
What are Lucky Celtic Irish Wishmaker Charms?
The ancient Celts of Ireland and Scotland venerated and honoured certain animals they regarded as ‘power animals’ and messengers of Mother Earth. They held that certain animals such as the Boar, Salmon, Horse and Hare were power animals possessing the distinctive spiritual essence of the mother of life known as Gaia. This spiritual power enables them to easily bridge the gap between this world and the otherworld.
Like other Nature Spirits, power animals contain the magical spiritual essence of the Gaia herself. The Celts held that power animals exist in spirit form in the otherworld, and sometimes visit us in this world to allow us to utilise their special powers. Power animals are how Gaia interacts with us, to teach us, guide us, provide inspiration, and provide us with her spiritual energy when necessary. The wearing of a power animal charm such as our Celtic Wishmakers can help you connect and interact on a spiritual level with our living planet and the mother of life herself (Gaia). The Celts believed that when anyone connects with the living essence of our Mother Earth they will have their dreams and wishes fulfilled.
Charms gain their ability to attract luck and good fortune by the creative belief of people over hundreds and even thousands of years. When a certain group of people such as the Celts come to associate a particular animal or totem symbol with the firm belief that it is lucky in some way, that belief is transmitted by the minds of thousands and even millions of people to the living creative universe. The universe acts on the message and over time begins to imbue the charm with the luck and benefits that the Celts believed to be associated with it. The longer the charm has been in use the more powerful and beneficial it will become. Celtic power animal charms have been in use for over 3000 years.
The Celts wrote of a time when the boundaries between humans and animals were few or non-existent. Our exclusive Celtic Wishmaker Charms seek to reconnect the wearer with that magical time.
