(Planet Today) Many people – both women and men – wear jewelry the way they want or the way fashion dictates. But the same rings, depending on the way they are worn, can become strong amulets. Or, on the contrary, work against their owner.
A bit of history
In Ancient Rome, rings on the big finger were mostly worn by military leaders. It was believed that it gave the patronage of Mars, the god of war, and brought good luck in battles. In the Middle Ages a thumb ring was the property of the rich, noble and influential. Weaving a ring around a thumb was an symbol of power. The wearing of rings made of specific materials, such as silver or copper, was also a distinctive mark of members of secret societies. Members of some Masonic lodges recognized their brethren by such an attribute. Nowadays, a ring on the thumb does not conceal such a deep subtext, but it can still tell something interesting about its owner.
In terms of chiromancy.
It matters which hand, right or left, the person wears the ring on.
If it is on the left hand, then it demonstrates a passionate, enthusiastic person, who believes more in the heart than in the head. Inherent to her is an adventurous spirit, a desire for the unknown and unexplored, for new horizons and discoveries. Hippies, “children of flowers,” preferred to wear a ring on the left thumb as a sign of freedom and contempt for traditional values, including material ones.
Women wear a ring on the left thumb when they want to reveal their sensual side. This is not always done consciously, influenced by hidden emotions and experiences. A ring on the right thumb shows a desire to succeed in career and financially. This is how brave and determined people adorn themselves, who are not afraid of difficulties and obstacles.
Keep me, my talisman
A ring, according to magicians and psychics, is one of the most powerful amulets. It is not in vain that Christians wear rings with words from Holy Scriptures together with or instead of a body cross. Some people put on their thumbs rings with runes or unusual engraving without thinking what they mean. To do so, to put it mildly, inconsiderate. First, even the one who put a picture or writing, could not guess about their true meaning. For example, a five-pointed star in a circle is a demonic symbol. The same goes for the eye of Horus and the all-seeing eye. It is not a good image, and it does not bode well. Secondly, the thumb itself serves as a conductor from the world of spirits to the inner world of man. That’s why it’s so important to “ring” it correctly.
Not for the sake of beauty
Here are a few examples of wearing a ring on the thumb and the corresponding symbolism.
After a divorce, some people prefer to keep the memory of the marriage and wear a wedding ring. Only not on the right ring finger, but on the left one. If the ring has become large, put it on the thumb of the left hand. By doing so, you diet to understand that you are not yet ready for a new relationship. And when you’re ready, of course, the wedding ring should be removed and put somewhere far away.
Widows put the wedding ring of the departed spouse on the thumb, because it is large for others. According to most magicians, you should not do this, especially if the woman plans to remarry.
A couple wearing the same ring on their thumbs seems to defy centuries-old traditions. For them, it is a symbol of rebelliousness and the desire to live by their own rules, without looking back at someone else’s opinion. There is nothing wrong here, in terms of esotericism. The main thing is that the desire to express yourself in this way should be mutual.
An interesting fact: the ring on the left thumb is interpreted by representatives of nontraditional orientation as a desire to find a new partner. On the right thumb it signifies the presence of a partner.
Trying it on ourselves
Those who decided to make a ring on the thumb as their talisman, it is useful to know a few rules. Choose a ring of silver, platinum or white gold, preferably without large stones. If it has an engraving, find out what it means; otherwise you can cause a lot of trouble. If you want to find love, marry and create a family, wear a ring on the left thumb. It will reveal femininity and attractiveness, so that the object of your affection will see you from an unexpected side. Those striving for career advancement wear a ring on the right thumb. It will allow you to demonstrate your business qualities in full.
“Cursed charity shop painting ruined my life”, says British woman
A British woman purchased a portrait of a young girl from a charity shop and now asserts that the picture is cursed, reports mirror.co.uk.
Elliot-Brown, aged 36, spotted an artwork by an unfamiliar artist at
the Hastings Advice Representation Center in St Leonards-on-Sea, East
Sussex, a month ago.
Simultaneously, the seller cautioned Zoe
about the painting possibly being cursed, revealing that a prior
purchaser of the same artwork had returned it to the store with the
statement “it ruined my life.”
Out of curiosity, Zoe captured an
image of the painting on her smartphone and shared the photo with her
68-year-old mother, Jane Elliot-Brown. Her mother seemed to be entranced
by the painting.
she began urging Zoe to acquire the painting. Yielding to her mother’s
persuasion, Zoe paid £20 for the artwork. However, as soon as she
introduced it into her home, strange occurrences commenced taking place.
Zoe entered her home and positioned the painting in the living room,
their dog named Cilla leaped up and started growling at the artwork.
Cilla deliberately kept her distance, refraining from approaching the
picture. Subsequently, Zoe’s mother’s health took a sharp decline. She
began experiencing alternating spells of fever and chills, requiring her
to wear four sweaters to keep warm.
Concurrently, Zoe’s mother
seemed to be captivated by the painting. She continuously gazed at it
and even caressed the painted girl’s cheek. During the night, she heard
peculiar knocks emanating from the room where the picture hung, despite
the room being unoccupied.
Zoe managed to persuade her mother that
the painting held negative energy and was cursed. However, Jane
staunchly defended the painting, reluctant to part with it.

anything from what happened last night. My mom is still very weird and
distracted and doesn’t want to discuss it.”
And then something
even more frightening happened. Zoe and her friend Ben went for a walk
on a hill during a thunderstorm and suddenly saw a “creepy black figure”
that suddenly appeared in front of them.
They do not know if this
is related to the painting, but they immediately ran back in fear.
Deciding to get rid of the cursed painting, Zoey eventually took it and
took it to the same shop where she bought it.
And when she drove

Wild man with a spear in his hand was spotted in the forests of Germany

one of the caves and held in his hand a long wooden stick that looked
like a spear.
“He didn’t take his eyes off us, but he didn’t say
anything. He looked dirty and looked like a prehistoric man from the
Stone Age, like pictures in a history book,” Gina Weiss, 31, told Bild

minutes. The naked man appeared to be in his forties and reportedly
these tourists were not the first to have seen him in the area.
It is assumed that he has been living in the forests near Blankenburg for about five years.
Authorities say they have received numerous reports of a person wearing a wolf’s skin or wolf costume over the past five years.

other cases, people have seen how a savage is trying to make a fire or
building a hut out of branches for himself.
