What 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.
