I just got a house and I've noticed there are mirrors EVERYWHERE. In every single room including the kitchen, and basement, plus the garage. I have also noticed there is a horse shoe in the garage. Mirrors creep me out in general, but this really bothers me. Do you think there maybe something wrong with the house?
I doubt it. Mirrors reflect light, and using mirrors all over the house is a common design trick to make rooms look bigger and more full of light, especially placed opposite of windows.
Horseshoes are for luck. Where is it? Is it just laying around, or is it hung above the doorway in the garage? A lot of people and cultures still believe in those superstitions. Horseshoes are like, preventative measures in that way. Not like, 'Oh no there's something bad here, better hang up a horseshoe to protect us'.
But I mean like... what are you worried about exactly? Why would that mean there's something wrong with the house? The mirror thing, I kind of understand. I was horrified of mirrors for months when I was a kid because of some movie I saw. But if they bother you that much, why can't you take some of them down? Take down the horseshoe too if it weirds you out.
Nope. It means the last family who lived there was very vain.
As cun7n1nja correctly stated the most common reason for many mirrors in a home is to reflect light. Mirrors are also added to 'open up' an area - the illusion of depth makes the room seem bigger.
I have many mirrors in my home for this exact reason.
Regarding magic. Mirrors are used to do various things in the paranormal realm.
But the mirror itself isn't spooky or magic, its simply a tool. No different to a candle or a spoon used in a ritual are just candles and spoons.
My best guess is that you are feeling "spooked" because we are not usually accustomed to seeing our own reelections so often. Take time to get to know yourself better by looking in your mirror and taking charge with positive self talk.
