What the Five Celestial Guardians symbolize and how to display?
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. Remember that feng shui is first and foremost a tradition tied to the land. The relationship of the feng shui practitioner with the land is the expression of bond, of understanding the flow of energy in the earth and cooperating with it. By listening to the earth, you become attuned to the energy of the universe. To cure such problems, this set of five celestial guardians are the best symbolic replacement of perfect landscape for city dwellings today.

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”.
