Most witches don’t call on a love goddess for gambling luck. But I’ve had some real luck calling upon the Turanna, the Italian equivalent of Venus. Naturally, she’s considered lucky in matters of love, but she also favors gamblers and fortune tellers.
My little bit of luck involved three lottery wins that paid for some steep utility bills and a few small home improvements – thank you, Turanna!
Anyway, Turanna’s lucky number is six, which is throwing sixes with dice is often referred to as “The Venus Throw”.
This is what you do to get Turanna to smile upon you for gambling luck…
First, make an altar to Turanna. It can be on a cupboard, a piece of wood, or simply on the floor.
Once you’ve decided on your altar location, take a pack of cards and remove the Queen of Hearts. This will represent Turanna.
Place the card somewhere where it won’t be disturbed, maybe on a gold altar cloth, and then place three dice, all showing the number six in front of the card.
Make offerings to Turanna – things like sweet liqueurs, perfume and flowers are favorites of Thuranna.
Make sure that if she brings you Luck, you give her further gifts to keep drawing her blessings to you. Any other items can be added to your altar that you feel are lucky to you. Lucky charms for example, would be a really good addition.
May Turanna and gambling Luck be with you!
