2. Spilling Salt
There is a long-standing belief that spilling salt is a sign of bad luck.
This omen originated in ancient societies, where salt was a valuable commodity. Therefore, spilling and wasting it was a sign of bad luck.
Throwing salt over your left shoulder keeps the bad luck away.
3. A Butterfly Flying Into Your Home
A butterfly flying into your home brings good news or an important guest. According to “World of Feng Shui,” a butterfly in the home is always a good omen.
Bright-colored butterflies relate to romance, and dark-colored butterflies relate to career or business. In Louisiana, white butterflies mean good luck for the homeowner; however, in Maryland, they symbolize death.
In the Philippines, a spotted brown butterfly that flies into the house symbolizes good luck, perhaps bringing money to the homeowner or relatives. A lingering black butterfly in that culture indicates the death of a loved one.
