What the taoist bagua horoscope coin symbolizes?
This Taoist version of Bagua Horoscope Coin is inscribed with Taoist deities Chang Tao Ling (the founder of Taoism) and Lu Dong Pin (8-Immortals) to provide heavenly blessings and special powers. Chang Tao-Ling, the scion of a clan of Taoists and alchemists, developed religious Taoism partly in reaction to the rampant spread of non-indigenous Buddhism from India. He created a complex hierarchy of gods and goddesses, ritual libations and feast days which appealed to many rural villagers and farmers as a homegrown alternative to Buddhism. Chang Dao-Ling’s sect was called “The Way of the Celestial Masters”. Meanwhile, Lu Dong-Pin is one of the popular Eight Immortals, who uses a sword to overcome evil spirits and slice through bad energies caused by bad “chi”. He also holds the fly whisk which he uses to cure illnesses. He also blesses scholastic luck to the family.
The ancient feng shui texts noted that the crane is another most important bird symbol in feng shui next to the mythical phoenix. The beautiful crane can fly to the heaven and is endowed with many mythical attributes and the symbol of immortality, happiness and longevity. Cranes are birds of immortality and are believed to live as long as 1000 years old. Cranes also bring wisdom, solve all kinds of problems, dissolves hindrances/obstacles allowing upward progression and attainment of great heights with honor. For those who frequently travel, the crane blesses them with smoothness of flight. Emperors of China use the crane symbol to signify high position of power, staying in power, resilience and a life filled with honors. A pair of cranes in our living hall denotes the patriarch and matriarch living through till the ripe age, and the continuation of an intact and harmonious family.
Meanwhile, the tortoise is one of the four celestial animals (Dragon, Phoenix, Tiger and Tortoise) in Feng Shui practice. Tortoises are as essential as dragons. It is the greatest sign of longevity, stability, steadiness, good fortune, support and protection. According to feng shui masters, tortoises are best placed in the north or at the back portion of the premise or home. Unlike limitations for the number of dragons you can own, you may own as many tortoises as you like. Tortoise produces wonderful results to enhance career luck, longevity and health, wealth luck, family luck and education luck.
The serpent which is a symbol commonly used in taoist ritual is believed to come from the sky, possesses supernatural power and able to change into human, animal or any other form on earth to counter evil forces.
The secret of the protective bagua potency lies in the arrangement of the Eight Trigrams. Eight Trigrams (derived from I-Ching or known as Book of Changes) is the pattern of change in our universe and its energy were formulated, with their transformation, events and evolution of mother nature recorded diagramically in the form of solid (yang) and (yin) lines called trigrams. These natural events affect our health, livelihood, and relationships.
The 12 Earthly Branches with animal zodiac on the other side of the coin represent mankind. Combined with the bagua trigrams, all the 12 zodiacs would be protected against all odds, mishaps, misfortune, accidents, sickness, devastation from unlucky stars and annual afflictions.
