Have you ever noticed a blue sapphire ring on Big B’s right hand, Om-shaped diamond ring in Kajol’s finger and turquoise bracelet in Salman’s hand? Why these bollywood bigwigs always wear these talismans? Are these amulets a secret of their good fortune?

Although, we better know that future can’t be predicted precisely, we still remain eager to know about our fate. Subconsciously, we tend to associate everyday life events with a good or bad omen. Well, it’s actually a superstition or good/bad luck omen- it completely depends on your psyche!

1.   When a Cat Comes to Stay in Your House


It’s a sign of bad omen. White cats indicate death, while black cat denotes disloyalty and sedition.  Therefore, chase this inauspicious omen away from your house.

2.   Meeting Up with a Cow


Cow is a sign of prosperity. However, you can easily meet up a cow on roads or highways. But, one day, if you do take a drive to the countryside, and confront with a cow, it means good fate is coming your way.

3.   When a Butterfly Flies into Your Home


Butterfly signifies good omen. If a butterfly flies to your home, you are going to receive good news from the important guest. Dark (almost black) colour butterfly indicates that the guest will bring you good news associated with your business or career. Bright colour butterfly implies that you will get good news related to your love life, from the visitor. Don’t try to catch it because unintentional killing of a butterfly can change your good luck into bad luck.

4.   When Bird Droppings Land on Your Head


It’s really yucky and annoying, when something like this occurs to you. But, it signifies prosperity coming from paradise. Birds spell good fortune. So, always welcome them with open arms. Allow birds to make nest in your home.

5.   When Someone Gives You Money on a Lucky Day


If you receive an unanticipated tip for an act of kindness, you performed or someone repay owned debt to you on a lucky day, it means you will enjoy significant raise in money. 15 days of the New Year’s first moon are regarded as “Days of Miracles”. Money received on these days is considered as lucky money.

6.   When Your Hands Shiver


It’s both a good and bad omen. If your left hand shivers, you’ll win a lottery or money will come to you, some other way. When it happens to right hand, money is going to leave you soon. The similar interpretation is also associated with your itching palms. If your left palm suddenly begins to itch, rejoice, as money is coming your way.

7.   Simultaneous Appearance of the Rain and the Sun


The day, when there is a shower of rain and also the sun is shining, is supposed to be good for your career. Getting married or birth of a child on such a day is considered as auspicious.

8.   Putting On Your Clothes the Wrong Way Round


It indicates that extreme good fortune is waiting for you, particularly if you are confronting a spate of bad luck. If you unintentionally put on your clothes the wrong way round, it means, you are going to receive some favourable news, very soon.

9.   A Shooting Star


As you see a shooting star, close your eyes and make a wish immediately! Your wish will get fulfilled within the next 30 days. You will get well soon, if you are sick; you will make up, if you have just had a quarrel or you will regain the lost thing soon.

10.        When Your Ear Begins to Itch


It specifies that someone is talking about you. If your right ear itches, someone is saying nasty things about you. If your left ear itches, somebody is saying nice things about you.  Guess aloud the name of the friend, acquaintance or person, who is likely to be talking about you. The itchiness will come to an end, if you make a correct guess!
