During the Christmas holidays get some Holly to decorate your home and let it sit there for, at least into the new year. Then before you throw it away, take a leaf, dry it if it hasn't yet dried, then keep it in your wallet until the year after, if possible. 

Holly which is associated to the two astrological signs, Aries and Scorpio, has the virtue of attracting fortune and is thus indispensable for business men. It has been used as such for millennia. It is probably due to its beautiful perennial colour and slick red berries.

Bergamot orange

A few leaves of the Bergamot orange in your pockets attracts chance in money affairs. In Sicilie, tradespeople put them in their cash drawer for the same reasons. It is said that if your rub your banknotes with some Bergamot juice they will soon be back.

The Bergamot orange is considered a symbol of wealth.

Humulus Lupulus

Humulus seeds brings good luck.  Put a few of them in an alcohol (90°) filled glass jar. Then every Friday take out and hold the jar while concentrating on a subject which needs luck.

The plant as such is also a symbol of joy and happiness, another reason, just as valid, to accord it the virtue of; good luck charm.

You should keep with you, in your wallet for example, at least in a protected place, three laurel leaves, picked and blessed on Palm Sunday, i.e. Sunday 23 of March. 

Laurel, Apollo's favourite plant, is known to have protective, medicinal and divinatory properties but it is also an efficient antiseptic, very much utilised in ancient times. It has also the virtue of bringing chance.

The four leaf clover

Of course the four leaf clover is the most common of all good luck charms!
It is just as efficient dried in your wallet as it is represented as a jewel around your neck. Nevertheless the most efficient is the real one you find yourself. It is recommended in particular for prosperity and getting rid of bad luck.

The virtues of the four leaf clover comes probably from the fact that it is rather rare and also that it has the form of a cross. But it had already, before the spreading of Christianity, some 200 years before Christ, very high value, as the druids picked them at the same time they went fetching their so cherished, Mistletoe.
