The Tiger in Feng Shui and the Chinese Animal Zodiac

The Tiger is considered the king of the wild animals. It is seen as the natural symbol for royalty, power and fearlessness. An image of the Tiger is believed to terrify and drive away evil demons.  i.e. Symbol of Protection enhancement.

In Feng Shui the Tiger is very important as its stripes denote an auspicious mixture of Yin and Yang. 

 TIGER: Courageous, active, and self-assured, a natural leader, passionate and independent. Possibly restless especially if born at night. Rebellious and dynamic. A warrior and center of attention. Quick tempered but considerate. Affectionate but careless. A roaring success awaits the Tiger.

In the East, the Tiger symbolizes power, passion and daring. A rebellious, colorful and unpredictable character, he commands awe and respect from all quarters. This fearless and fiery fighter is revered as the sign that wards off the three main disasters of a household: fire, thieves and ghosts. 

The Tiger is a fortunate person to have around provided you are prepared for all the activity that comes along with his dynamic personality. The impulsiveness and vivacity of the Tiger person are contagious. His vigor and love of life are stimulating. He will arouse every sort of emotion in people except indifference. In short, the captivating tiger loves being the center of attention. 

You are sensitive, emotional, and capable of great love. However, you have a tendency to get carried away and be stubborn about what you think is right; often seen as a "Hothead" or rebel. Your sign shows you would be excellent as a boss, explorer, race car driver, or matador.

Fine Asian Porcelain - Antique Ding

A Ding is an ancient Chinese vessel with legs, a lid and two handles opposite each other. They were made in two shapes with round vessels having three legs and rectangular ones four.

Dings were originally made of ceramic materials then later, at the time of the Shang Dynasty (1600-1046 BCE), cast in bronze. This is the period to which the oldest examples of dings date back. Inscriptions found on dings and zhongs are used to study bronzeware script. They were used for cooking, storage and the preparation of ritual offerings to ancestors.

In Chinese history and culture, possession of one or more ancient dings is often associated with power and dominion over the land. Therefore, the ding is often used as an implicit symbolism for power. The term "inquiring of the ding" is often used interchangeably with the quest for power.

What does the Turtle Symbolize in Africa?

What does the Turtle Symbolize in Africa?

Because of its slow movements, the Turtle is regarded as intelligent and prudent.  Because it can reach old age, it is assured great respect that is paid to the elders of the tribe.  This association is also strengthened by the wrinkly skin of these animals.  

In legends, the wise turtle comes away victorious.  Since it is protected by its shell, no animal is able to kill it.  The ability to carry its protective house is also interpreted as intelligence.  Because Turtles can live in water as well as on land, they are considered to be intimate friends of the God of Rain and Water Spirits.
