Feng Shui Lucky Animals

Feng Shui Lucky Animals

The ancient Chinese system of feng shui often uses small statues or images of certain lucky animals as a quick fix for energies that are out of balance in a home or office. One animal, for example, is often placed next to a cash register to increase the cash flowing in!

Find out which animals are the traditional powerful helpers to make our personal and career lives more fulfilling and successful, here:

First, find out which places in your home correspond to each of the major “guas”–like career, relationships, or wealth, for example–so you know where the lucky animal should go. See Mapping With Feng Shui.

Dragon: Dragons confer power and good fortune in any gua, particularly Family/Health, unless you were born in a Dog year (since Dogs are opposite Dragons in Chinese astrology).

Three-Legged Frog: An odd-looking but charming creature, this frog is usually shown sitting on a pile of gold coins. It is especially helpful in a Wealth gua, or placed next to a cash register!

Fu Dogs: These dogs resemble stylized lions and they symbolize prestige and power. They usually come in pairs, one stationed on either side of doorways for protection.

Bat: The Chinese consider bats to be harbingers of happiness and good fortune. A pair of bats bring double happiness. (Imagine giving a pair of bats as a wedding gift!)

Crane: Cranes are symbolic of long life and wisdom.

Fish: Carp swim upstream, so they represent success and perseverance, but all fish are considered lucky for abundance and money.

Phoenix: This magical, mythical creature who rises from the ashes symbolizes peace and blessings. If you were born in a Phoenix year, it is especially lucky.
