Four-Leaf Clover is Lucky
First all of all, the Four-Leaf Clover is rare. It is thought that 1 in 10,000 clovers have four leaves. Each leaf has its own quality. All are good! The clover brings faith, hope, love and luck. Others believe in comes with the foursome of fame, wealth, love and health. Take your pick! The four-leaf clover is thought of in this fortunate manner all over the world as well as historically. In the Medieval Ages, children thought they could see fairies if they held the clover. Christian legends actually called it a piece of Paradise. In the Torah, Genesis 2: 10-14 states: And a river went out of Eden to water the garden: and from thence it was parted and bcame four heads. It’s easy to see how we can associated the four-leaf clover with Paradise.
A FOUR-LEAF CLOVER IN NUMBERS
What is the source of this positive association? Can we use the source in our own lives to make them better? The answer: The source is the 4 x 4 number square; and yes. I’ve already blogged about Elohim’s use of it in the 1st chapter of Genesis. Quick review: Any opposite numbers equal 17. God use the word “good” to describe his Creation on each day. In Hebrew, “good” has a gematria of 17. Any two opposite number on the 4 x 4 square equal 17. It is literally a good luck amulet. The Penguin Dictionary of Symbols says Jupiter: “embodies the principles of balance, authority, order, steady progression, plenty and the preservation of the established structure of society.” The number square of Jupiter is a symphony of fours:
- It is the 1st evenly numbered of the seven number squares of antiquity.
- It not only has four squares at its center, but
- It consists of a box with 4 squares on the length of each side. Simply stated, the four leaf clover animates this number square. I believe that it is behind the clover that gives the Irish the power of the “green”
The Four-Leaf Clover and 17 from the above number square are both used on St. Patrick’s Day. The connections are only “good”.
