There are three associations to luck and protection in this symbol: In the middle ages, iron was considered to be a metal that could ward off evil spirits such as Faeries. Traditionally, a horseshoe would be fixed onto the hoof of the horse using 7 nails. 7 was believed to be a lucky number. Blacksmiths made horseshoes and blacksmiths were considered lucky as they worked with fire and iron, two powerful elements that were highly respected. According to the legend, Dunstan, a blacksmith, was approached by the Devil who walked into his blacksmith’s shop and asked him to shoe his horse. Quick-witted Dunstan agreed to do the job for the Devil, and instead of nailing the shoe to the horse’s hoof, he nailed it onto the Devil’s foot. The Devil begged for Dunstan to remove the shoe and promised that he would never enter a house that had a horseshoe nailed onto the door. Dunstan removed the shoe and the Devil left. Dunstan then went on to have a long and illustrious career as the Archbishop of Cantebury. Since then, the horseshoe has been viewed as a way to ward of evil and bring in good luck.
