The diamond-shape quadrilateral has parallel sides of all equal length, telling us that no matter what length, position, or form, it's opposite side will always mimic the same. Our takeaway from this is the concept that everything you project out in the world will be the exact same energy that you receive back. What you give, you take... Reminding us to always choose kindness, love, and understanding, if that is so what we wish to receive.
As a symbol, dice represent luck and a chance for something more. We kiss the dice or blow on them to get them to fall the way we need. We’ll hold them to our chest and close our eyes to influence the way they will land. Whether you believe these superstitions will have an effect doesn’t matter. What matters is that we believe in that moment that we have some say in what is fundamentally a probabilistic universe. The observer effect as stated in quantum physics roughly states that nothing is decided or formed until the object is observed by a perceiving consciousness, so it sounds to me that we do have some say in creating a bit of our own luck.
Dice have at least 5,000 years of history as an equalizing tool of recreation. They were found carved from the knucklebones of cloven-hoofed animals such as sheep, goats or cattle, or made from rectangular sticks carved for ancient games of chance. In 1333 BCE Tutankhamen’s tomb was found to contain many board games and knucklebone dice.
~Shamrock & Clover~
St. Patrick used the shamrock to explain the holy trinity an aspect of Christianity that holds the number three as divine referring to it as the holy trinity or, the father the son and the holy spirit with each leaf of the 3 leaved clover represented one of the three. In time the shamrock became a more universal symbol of faith, hope, and love. When there is a rare 4th leaf on a clover then the addition of luck is added to the symbol.
