Your Charm for Tuesday, February 18 is The Axe Head

Your Charm for Today

The Axe Head

Today’s Meaning:

As an axe comes to a complete stop when it hits the tree so you have grown motionless. You now must draw back, step away from this quadrant of your life and begin again. Set a new path into motion.

General Description:   

This Chinese incised jade Axe head was suspended round the neck, and worn as an amulet to protect the wearer from illness, accidents, and injuries, also as a charm against witchcraft. The Chinese had great faith in the supposed medicinal powers of jade, which was recommended and prescribed by their physicians. The Axe head was always considered to be an emblem of strength and power among primitive races; even today small axe heads are still regarded as effective talismans against disease in many countries, and great faith is placed in their supposed supernatural powers of healing.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for October 1 is 49: Revolutionary Change

49: Revolutionary Change

Hexagram 49

General Meaning:  According to Chinese symbolism, the juxtaposed elements of this hexagram are fire under water. Fire evaporates water, and water puts out fire. Change can cause conflict; conflict brings about change. This hexagram refers to that time in the cycle of human affairs when things need stirring up, and when the hint of dramatic change is in the air.

In order to succeed, revolutionary change must be in alignment with certain unchanging laws. The process must begin at the right moment, gather support from a broad base of people, be guided by sincere and capable leadership and — most important of all — must address a real need. The strength of the forces of change will always be in proportion to the urgency of the need being championed. This is true whether the revolution is in government, in business, in education or in one’s personal affairs.

Revolutionary change points to a time when chaos arises from order. It is important to realize that not all order is good, not all chaos bad. Chaos, in fact, is an integral part of the way of things — as any parent (and modern science) will confirm. Have the courage to radically change and renew the way you present yourself. In this way, you can summon chaos to your cause, and you will unleash a new power on your behalf. If engaging in a negotiation, change the rules; if composing a piece of music, add the unexpected; if courting a lover, dare to be unconventional.

In periods of drought, even wild storms are preferable to yet another sunny day.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for August 21 – ‘Senior Citizen Day’

There’s no better time than ‘Senior Citizen Day’ to share some Feng Shui symbols that promote longevity and health. The Chinese believe that there is no good luck without long life, and almost every Chinese prayer and greeting includes the wish for longevity! One way to enjoy a smooth slide through life is to display an image or statue of a crane. Considered the bird of immortality, the crane is also strongly associated with long life and happiness. His symbolic presence in your home is also thought to bring harmony and happiness into that space. As well, the pine tree could be considered the strongest of the symbols of inner strength, vitality and permanence. This tree is steadfast and strong and represents the fortitude associated with long-lasting achievement. So display an image of a pine tree (or grow the real deal) anywhere around your house to activate energies of longevity and long life. Bamboo has also long been regarded an excellent symbol of longevity for its durability and ability to bend but not break. This symbolizes the way all difficulties of life should be handled, as the bamboo can adapt and go with the flow and it always survives. It is considered a great idea to hang images or paintings of bamboo in the office in order to ensure both career longevity and good fortune.
