Simply so, what does it mean when a horseshoe is upside down?
Hanging a horseshoe facing upwards in a "U" shape is said to keep evil out and bring good luck into your home. Conversely, hanging it upside down will have luck flowing out of your home.
Subsequently, question is, why are horseshoes lucky? A Saint Patrick's Day staple, horse shoes have long been associated with good luck although there's an ongoing debate over the proper way to use them when attempting to attract good fortune. To ward off goblins and evil spirits from their homes, the people hung iron horseshoes over their front doors.
Beside this, is a horseshoe a sign of good luck?
Horseshoes have seven holes to hold them in place on the horse's foot. Hanging a horseshoe heels up means it keeps all the good luck from running out of the shoe. But hanging a horseshoe heels down means it flows good luck down on everyone who walks underneath it.
Where should a horseshoe be placed in a house?
Horseshoe Feng Shui Placement The horseshoe is usually placed outside the front door (and above it) as a protection symbol, but there is no restriction against placing it inside the front door. So, you can use your own judgment and aesthetic criteria for what looks best with your specific home style and decor.
