What the carps symbolizes and how
to place this object?
The carp is probably the most popular fish reared in ancient china till today, where it can be found in imperial palaces, homes of the rich and powerful, casinos and hotels as a traditional feng shui fish. The carp is very closely associated to the dragon. The old tale of the carp jumping and crossing over "Dragon Gate" to transform into a Dragon had become very popular. The carp is a tough fish that could resist big currents in China's ancient Yellow River and this portray perseverance and determination of it. It is able to persistently resist hardship, swim upstream and rapidly jumping above the water to reach heaven to symbolize great achievements in ones pursuit or high ambitions of a lifetime. Although the carp is often being associated to scholastic success and literary luck, but it is also a potent emblem of happy outcome, joyful marriage, sufficient fortune and prosperity.
Fish can increase the momentum of wealth generation, gather accumulation of wealth and neutralize negative forces. The chinese always associate the fish with abundance and prosperity with the saying "nien nien yew yu" which means "seeing abundance harvest every year". Because of its strong symbolic meaning, chinese homes are normally decorated with fish ponds, aquariums and art pieces. They believe this is will make the family income "float". There are quite a number of fishes which are popular among feng shui enthusiasts, but mostly are red, orange, gold or silverish white in color. And all of them are fresh water fish, where so far we had not seen salt water fish being used to activate feng shui luck.
We normally recommend the carp to increase
one's educational growth and a charm that leads to passing examinations
with flying colors. But some of our customers see an increase in
their business after displaying the carp, while those in sales and
marketing view it as bringing plenty of success by putting them
in a competitive advantage over their competitors. For housewives,
the carps are considered as a powerful symbol of harmony and joy
which carries peaceful meanings to their household.
This powerful fortune symbol can be displayed
in several places to raise the bar for your pursuits:
1. Place the ornament to decorate the important areas of your
living rooms, family rooms, reception, dining, cashier's counter
or even bedrooms to ensure a trouble free year.
2. Place it in your sheng chi location
to tap maximum wealth luck for material success and power, and
in enhancing your career, windfall luck and more sources of income
coming your way.
3. For those who know the placement of water in feng shui, you
may place the carps nearby or inside those water features (such
as waterfall, ponds, aquariums):
a. North - for career luck
b. East - for enhancement of family well-being
c. Southeast - for wealth luck
d. Water star #8 position according to Flying Star feng shui -
for wealth luck
4. For bosses, managers and employees, if you are looking for
more personal growth and money opportunities, it is recommended
that you place the carp at the north location of your work desk
in 2010. The carp will create the difference between you and your
peers to enable yourself to stay more competitive.
