Feng Shui Symbols You Should Display During the Chinese Year of the Snake

Feng Shui Symbols You Should Display During the Chinese Year of the Snake
February 9, 2013 - January 30, 2014

 
 
 
 
If you read our predictions for the Year of the Snake, you are probably wondering what Feng Shui symbols should I display for maximum Heath, Prosperity and Luck during 2013.  We are going to give you a few suggestions that will help enhance this year for you.  Remember, you do not have to always display Feng Shui symbols for others to see.  You just have to place them in an area you know where they are and affirm to yourself why you are placing that item there.  It is also important for you to recognize they are there when you walk by and affirm the reason/s you placed the symbol there.  Most of the time I do this silently in my thoughts.  Other times, I say it out loud just because I need extra help or guidance during that particular time. 
 
Let's review what this year means to us:  "....This is a year of water Snake, and all things will be possible. Saving money and being thrifty should be your top priorities. Delusion and deception are common in the year of the water Snake. Stay alert! To gain the greatest benefits from this year, you must control spending and use your talents wisely. If you are planning to get married or to begin a business partnership, be sure to thoroughly investigate the other person's finances and background before you legalize the alliance..."   www.thecrabbynookgarden.com/yearofsnake.html

Each of the 12 animals are governed by an element plus a Yin Yang Direction. Divided into 4 groups.  This year is a Water year:

Water
• The North 
• Skeletal/Excretory System 
• Kidneys 
• Communication 
• Intuition 
• Sensitivity 
• Fear


'Governs'
Snake, Horse, Rooster

First, if you are the Chinese Zodiac Sign of the Snake, you should definitely be displaying your Chinese Zodiac Symbol all the time.  It is also recommended that you display the zodiac symbol of the current year.  Chinese Zodiac symbols come in many forms.:  a Keychain, Lanyard, Statue, Jewelry, Stickers and even plush Animals.  They do not have to be an expensive item.  Just recognized why you are displaying it!  I will repeat this several times throughout this blog so you will remember to do this every time your walk by your placed symbol.

The Snake possesses a keen air of calmness in situations of conflict. The Snake's ability to renew itself typifies the strength for rebirth and recovery. A resilient and strong willpower enables the Snake to achieve objectives never faltering away from its true focus. The Chinese consider it lucky to have a symbol of the Snake for those born under the respective year. Many say that it enhances the personality and strong characteristics of the Snake to have a symbolic Snake around.

WHAT HEALTH OR LONG LIFE SYMBOLS SHOULD I DISPLAY?

TURTLES -   Represents Health and Long Life. The symbolic meanings of the animals are tortoise (long life) and baby tortoise (new beginnings).

CRANES  - Cranes represent Long Life. Place cranes in your health, area or anywhere that is prominent so that you will 'get' strong health 'chi' every time you cast your eyes upon them. You will actually feel nourished by them.






The Crabby Nook
JASPER GEMSTONE  - Said to control excessive bleeding. Believed to be helpful in blood disorders and to detoxify the liver. Helps one to get along others of the same sex.

ELEPHANTS - Will bring luck and good fortune to any home or office.

WHAT WEALTH OR PROSPERITY SYMBOLS SHOULD I DISPLAY?

 MONEY FROG - Named Chachu will attract plenty of wealth into your home using three-legged Frogs with a coin in its mouth! This auspicious creature attracts good fortune into your home.

Place the frog in any of the corners diagonally opposite you front door for best effect. At the very least, you should have one frog facing out to collect the money and one facing in to bring the money back into the house. You can also place him in view of your front door. Every morning turn him towards the exterior. Turn him towards the interior in the evening to prevent him from becoming exhausted, or, letting your money escape.

Keep you frogs below the table, behind the couch or in other discreet areas of your home. I keep mine on top of my computer at night facing into the room and facing toward the window beside my computer during the day.

LOTUS - A powerful attractor of business and prosperity luck.

 Display a lotus in the center of your store or in the heart of your home and you will find your wealth increasing through extra income, i.e. pay raise, bigger deals, more customers, etc.

 Place it in your office in the same manner and you will find yourself closing more deals as it can help you to clear obstacles so that you get the upper hand in business negotiations.

Place a crystal lotus near a window that receives sunshine so that your room will be filled with cascades of rainbows that will bring positive energies and a feeling of tranquility to your home.

If you are seeking a perfect partner, place a Lotus in your romance area to symbolize a perfect union.

WHAT SYMBOLS FOR LUCK SHOULD I DISPLAY?



_______________________________________________________
 


PAGODA - It brings not only protection against bad energy and pernicious forces in your surrounding but career and scholastic luck to its owner. Auspicious Chi gathering around the pagoda will energize the person who work nearby making one feeling fresh and alert during his work or study. The Pagoda is also a powerful symbol of protection against illnesses.

The Pagoda makes an excellent gift for those pursuing higher education, people who are constantly sick or those vying for a promotion at work.

The Pagoda is a temple of knowledge, peace and silence. It symbolizes the path of wisdom. It is said that a person who knows more or is knowledgeable stands firm like a mountain or a Pagoda and cannot be shaken by anything.

The Pagoda is believed to possess the power to tame unruly minds and behaviors. As you may read in many Chinese tales, the Pagoda is used for taming of cheeky spirits by ‘imprisoning’ them in it. Hence the Pagoda can be used to ward of evils and bad chi.

The Pagoda is a very useful Feng Shui enhancer and cure that brings literary luck, fame luck, protection and advancement in career. It is also potent to ward off bad energy and killing forces (sar chi’) in your abode.

TERRACOTTA WARRIORS of CHINA - A great guardian for your garden, office and home.

TerraCotta is a natural earth element and will absorb negative energies.

One of the most famous archaeological sites in the world is the buried army of China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang. The Qin Dynasty came to an end in 206 B.C. In 1974, farmers made this extraordinary discovery while drilling wells in search of water near the Chinese city of Xi'an. Since that time, millions of visitors have marveled at the ongoing excavation. Each of the over 8,000 life-sized terra-cotta figures, organized in ranks of infantry, cavalry and charioteers, are modeled with distinctive features and are thought to be portraits of actual, living soldiers from that time.

Millions of visitors to Xi'an, China have marveled at the excavation of the 2,000-year-old terracotta armies of China's first emperor Qin Shi Huang. More than 8,000 life-size figures of soldiers and horses were buried to protect the emperor's tomb. Even more remarkable is that this multitude of statues are each modeled with unique, distinctive features and are thought to be portraits of living figures. The emperor Qin Shi Huang would not have liked to hear it, but reduced down to a more modest size, some of his loyal soldiers turn out to make evocative table and desktop decorations, guarding personal documents particularly effectively.
