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.

In your work, don’t try to get ahead of schedule; patience will pay off. Erect an impenetrable barrier between your career life and your private life. Closely control the studies of your children; give them advice and support their efforts. If you must manipulate inflammable or corrosive liquids, be doubly cautious; an accident is likely to occur this day. You’ll lay down plans with your friends,

Feng Shui Lucky Animals

Feng Shui Lucky Animals

  • Annie B. Bond

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.

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.

What Does The Number 8 Mean?

  • Eight (八; accounting 捌; pinyin ) is considered a lucky number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word meaning to generate wealth (發(T) 发(S); Pinyin: ). Property with the number 8 may be valued greatly by Chinese. For example, a Hong Kong number plate with the number 8 was sold for $640,000. The opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Beijing started at 8 seconds and 8 minutes past 8 pm (local time) on 8 August 2008.
  • Eight (八, hachi, ya) is also considered a lucky number in Japanese culture, but the reason is different from that in Chinese culture. Eight gives an idea of growing prosperous, because the letter (八) broadens gradually.
  • The Japanese thought eight (や, ya) as a holy number in the ancient times. The reason is less well understood, but it is thought that it is related to the fact they used eight to express large numbers vaguely such as manyfold (やえはたえ, Yae Hatae) (literally, eightfold and twentyfold), many clouds (やくも, Yakumo) (literally, eight clouds), millions and millions of Gods (やおよろずのかみ, Yaoyorozu no Kami) (literally, eight millions of Gods), etc. It is also guessed that the ancient Japanese gave importance to pairs, so some researchers guess twice as four (よ, yo), which is also guessed to be a holy number in those times because it indicates the world (north, south, east, and west) might be considered a very holy number.
  • In numerology, 8 is the number of building, and in some theories, also the number of destruction.

Feng Shui Tip of the Day for October 28

It’s ‘Lung Health Day’ so I immediately thought of the Feng Shui gold standard as far as intentional breathing and expanding lung capacity is concerned. The Chinese have long used meditation in partnership with Feng Shui to enhance their Chi, improve their lung health and to garner opportunities for a fortunate future. The Great Sunshine Buddha meditation promises to do all that and more. Standing with your feet shoulder width apart with palms and arms lifted in the air, turn your head upwards to face the sun. Imagine the sun emitting a ‘hum’ sound, one of the most sacred sounds known to man. Now imagine that same humming sun coming closer and getting hotter before it enters your body through the third eye or forehead area. The sun now rushes quickly through your body, filling and bathing it with heat and sound until it exits out of the bottom of your feet. Relax and then raise your arms and palms again. This time the sun and sound enter through both the third eye and the palms of each hand. It rushes to the feet where it quickly rebounds and returns to the head where it then exits. Relax your arms again. With arms and palms up, the sun and sound reenter the body through the three points and rushes down to the feet. Then it slowly rises, circling and heating and humming around all the vital organs as well as any problematic spots. Use the sound and the bright sunlight to cure health problems, push bad or negative Chi up and out and increase health and happiness. Repeat nine times each day for 27 days for maximum effect and opportunity.
