The procedure involves embedding a small Saint Joseph statue, upside down, in the garden or lawn of the home while concurrently asking for divine intervention. Once the house has been sold, the icon must be dug up and taken with the owner to their new dwelling where it will be kept in a place of honor within the home. Well-known for his work as a carpenter, Saint Joseph also known as ‘San Jose’ by Spanish-speakers and by Italians as ‘San Giuseppe’ is believed to bring good luck to anyone who wants to sell their home fast and at a reasonable price.

The precise location to bury the St. Joseph statue is still unclear– some say that it is essential to place the statue overturned, about 12 inches below the earth between the real estate ‘for sale’ sign and the path, as this will encourage potential buyers to come into the property. Others claim that the Saint Joseph statue should be covered up in the garden close to the building’s foundation, as this will lure buyers to the site and attract money. Condo occupants are recommended to bury their Saint Joseph statue in a flower pot on their verandah or inside the condo rather than hiding the statue on the garden of the building, as this might attract a buyer for an adjacent unit instead of their own.

The Five-pointed metal barn stars are simple decorations among the Amish people and German agricultural communities. The farmers place these large, attention-grabbing ornaments on the side of their barns to draw good luck to themselves and the entire family. The metal barn stars also known as the ‘architectural stars’, or as ‘Pennsylvania stars’ or rustic tin stars were locally made from scraps of leftover roofing tile tin. There are symbols of good luck and have been garnishing the sides of American farm structures for more than three centuries. After the Civil War, barn stars were usually hanged on large industrial constructions in a quest to attract fortune to the owner of the factory and protect the workers against any injuries. A high number of non-Amish homeowners have also taken up the custom of adorning their houses, garages, shed and barns with these rustic, simple metal stars, which can now be found across the country in both urban and rural surroundings.

The barn stars are becoming a favorite design element. More and more people are hanging them on doorways, mantels, living rooms and porches. Barn stars are reasonably priced and easy to get. Some are handmade and sold at cool, niche craft shops while others are mass manufactured and sold by large dealers and online retail stores.

Barn stars come in a wide assortment of colors, with each color believed to offer different types of protection, luck and fortune for the property owners where it is displayed. While all Amish tin stars are said to attract success and good luck, copper is the color that is most often linked with abundance in investments, career and wealth. Green means growth and development, while black barn stars are the choice of homeowners who want protection from misfortune. Often property owners will hang numerous different barn stars on their buildings to improve their fortune and attract prospective home buyers.

How Can I Design and Decorate My Home for Luck?

For many centuries people have been decorating and designing their homes to attract good luck. This tradition is known as “Feng Shui”, the Chinese art of arranging furniture, doors, windows, and decorative pieces in a particular way that is destined to improve luck. Feng Shui practice binds the invisible forces of the universe, the earth, and humanity together. Feng Shui techniques are closely associated to Daoism and are meant to preserve harmony between the environment and its inhabitants.

According to the guidelines of Feng Shui, placing fresh flowers in your office or home is a simple way to attract positive energies good fortune and wealth. Make sure to avoid flowers with thorny stems such as roses, since the stems can interfere with ‘chi’ which is the flow of positive energy. The color of your door can also affect your luck. Feng Shui commands that south-facing outside doors should be painted orange or bright red and north-facing doors be blue or black to maximize the fortune of the home’s occupants. If the exterior door faces west, it should be painted white or gray, while east-facing outside doors should be colored either brown or green.

Feng Shui philosophies also apply to both the placement of the stairway and the number of steps the staircase should have – ideally; a staircase would have one, two, five, ten, thirteen, fourteen, seventeen or twenty-two steps. The stairs should not be positioned opposite the front door of a home, as this provides positive energy fortune and good luck with an easy escape. Feng Shui believers also advise against placing a staircase across from the bedroom, or bathroom doorways and spiral staircases are to be avoided on the basis that positive energy can become trapped within the spiral stairway, preventing luck from reaching the dwellers of the house.

Homeowners whose front door opens onto a staircase can increase the luck in their home. The remedy for poor staircase positioning is to just place a small crystal, wind chime or other energy-diffusing medal between the bottom step of the staircase and the front door. This will spread out and disperse the positive energy as it travels down the stairway, obstructing it from escaping through the front door.

Other simple Fung Shui, luck-drawing home decorations include hanging purple curtains or using purple bedding since purple is the color of royalty. While green is the color of money, always add live, green plants in your home to increase the flow of money, and to enhance the unhindered flow of wealth into your life and family. Always keep your home clean and clutter-free as possible since obstacles like excess furniture can block lucky energy. Turning on a light in each empty room for three hours a day, hanging mirrors in the east, southeast, and northern areas of your home, keeping stove burners clean adding lights and pretty plants to the path to the front door are also some more Feng Shui techniques to improve luck and fortune when selling a house.
