The four celestial
guardians are the basis of landscape feng shui. They are the
green dragon, white tiger, black tortoise and red phoenix.
It is said that every site or home is surrounded by four symbolic
animal spirits. Ideally these four directions should be harmonious
with each other. Their presence in harmony would encourage
the dragon's breathe (lung chi) to settle and creating the
most auspicious energy. An important consideration is that
all sites or home should be sloping and well drained. Unfortunately,
in modern homes, the surrounding landscape in cities usually
cannot attain such great criteria, therefore you could invite
these four celestial guardian set to bring great feng shui
into your homes and premises. They should be spread around
the house according to their cardinal directions. When balance
within the home is created, the four celestial guardians with
each associated to one cardinal direction will bring you career,
wealth, good health, power/authority and fame. They are also
known as the protectors of four directions, thus providing
safety and preventing dangers for the family.
What the Four Celestial Guardians
symbolize and how to place the objects?
Ideally, for excellent feng shui, the landscape
of the surrounding is the most important factor to be considered
before looking into the flying star system of a building. If the
landscape is bad, the feng shui can never be good no matter how
good the flying stars are. To cure such problems, this set of
four celestial guardians are the best replacement of perfect landscape
for city dwellings today.
The chinese astrology studies have shown that the location of dragon
is at the east, the phoenix in the south, the tiger in the west,
while the tortoise is in the north as shown below.
In olden days, all houses in China were built to sit north and face
south. This is to avoid cold winds coming from the north to enter
the main door. The back of the house should be protected by mountains
or using trees as shields behind the house. They would also carefully
analyze the landscape for the presence of Dragon's Breath for shapes
that reveal the Yang Dragon and the Yin Tiger. They would examine
the landscape where the dragon and the tiger meet. This is where
sharply rising Yang Dragon merges softly with the undulating Yin
tiger ground.The Dragon brings upon the essence of life, in the
form of its celestial breath, known to many as sheng chi. Then the
front of the house should have a wide open space and a low land
to represent the phoenix.
Anyone learning feng shui is advised to
understand the roles of these four creatures play in achieving
good feng shui.
Of the four, the green dragon is most prominent and significant.
The dragon epitomizes the emperor, signifies heaven, and is the
most celestial of all creatures. Having his image attracts good
yang energy to our homes. Having his image in our homes would
benefit us hugely for success in every area of our lives. He would
bring us wealth, business luck and many filial children. He should
be positioned in the east of the living room.
The white tiger on the other hand would
protect the household from any harm. His presence would especially
benefit politicians and high ranking officials. He should be positioned
in the west of the living room.
The black tortoise is as important as the dragon, and his presence
would benefit us in career, promotions, having a good job and
smooth business undertakings. His position is in the north.
The red phoenix on the other hand would bring us fame, recognition
and public success. His position is in the south.
Another alternative in arranging these
celestial protectors is having them in the armchair formation:
1. Phoenix in front portion of the house
2. Black turtle at the back portion of the house
3. Green dragon on the left portion of the house (inside looking out)
4. White tiger on the right portion of the house (inside looking out)
