If luck isn't random each day, what affects my character's different types of luck? Can I turn a type of luck around in a given day?

Luck is largely affected by Feng Shui and Lucky items. Thonky has a detailed article on the matter.

Taking Katrina's suggestion is also believed to improve luck but I don't have any firsthand knowledge of how well that works.

Every so often Katrina will visit your town. She might say that bad luck is in the future and a specific item will help. If you have it (like if it is clothing) then wear it, you never know, something nice might happen. However sometimes you can get those random bad luck days; don't worry, all that happens from what I've experienced is when you run your character will trip, look up the river glitch in youtube to find the advantage to this. Also in the accessories section in Able Sisters, there may be a King-Tut mask on sale. Be aware this does also give you the "bad luck". But if you want to glitch into your river, this item works too. Unless a fortune from Katrina, I'm not sure you can change your luck around. Hope I helped :)

Katrina told me wearing a shamrock will enhance good luck if worn in your hair. She also sold me a tingle hat that she said will make good luck better. It was 10,000 bells, but you can order one from your catalog for about 1,500 after you have the first one.
