The horseshoe is used as an ancient religious symbol in Assyrian and Egyptian cultures, it is often seen depicted in historic sculptures and hieroglyphs meant to signify the enigmatic “door of life”. Any symbol that has an open end such as a horseshoe is considered female because it symbolizes how life enters the world.
Horseshoes are creations of blacksmiths, and blacksmithing was once considered a lucrative and prosperous trade. They also derive the symbolism of good luck from their composition of iron, considered a powerful metal for its ability to withstand heat and flames.
