The Exuberant, Fiery Horse - Your Ticket to Fame
Does your profession require you to be well known and easily
recognized? Are you or do you aspire to be a politician, model, singer,
actor, writer, sportsman, or any other public figure? Well, here are
some pointers that may help you along the way to achieving the fame you
According to the Pa Kua of the Later Heaven Arrangement, the trigram
that represents fame, recognition and reputation is Li, placed in the
South. This means that the southern wall or corner of any home or room
is the fame corner. The ruling element of the south is fire.
To energize the fame corner and activate opportunities for becoming
famous and widely respected, place something that symbolizes fire in
the south: bright lights, sun motifs, red-coloured objects and anything
else that suggests this element.
You may also use objects that symbolize the wood element, as in the
productive cycle, fire is produced by wood, so wood is said to be good
for it. Avoid the water element as water destroys fire.
An excellent and most appropriate symbol to place in the South is an image of the horse. In Feng Shui, the horse
whose natural element is fire, is the seventh creature of the Chinese
zodiac. It is favorably regarded as one of the animals that exude Yang
energy and its representative direction on the zodiac is the South.
The horse is also one of the precious animals included in the
mandala offering to Buddha. It's emblematic of nobility, class and a
comfortable lifestyle, and stands for speed and perseverance.
When the horse is depicted laden with valuables such as gold ingots
, pearls, precious stones, gold coins
etc, it is particularly precious and represents the aspiration of a
comfortable life and the attainment of high rank, which brings
recognition and a life of ease and luxury.
Another type of horse that is good for display is the tribute horse,
which the Chinese always associate with gifts given to emperors and
other powerful court officials - the tribute horse has been associated
with gifts brought by the vanquished to the victors. Thus, if you're
involved in a competitive situation, use a painting or sculpture with
the tribute horse as the subject to bring you victory luck.
If you cannot find such an image, look for something that shows a precious horse
(preferably white) that is being led and not ridden by an official.
This symbolizes upward mobility and promotion, and is very auspicious
The horse is best placed in the living and family areas, but never
in the bedrooms. Also, do not display a horse that is rearing up,
particularly if it's directly behind you or directly confronting you,
as this may cause you accidents and physical problems related to the
limbs. Instead, get a statuette or painting of a horse or horses that
are in non-threatening postures.
Some wonderful images of auspicious horses are the Tang tribute horse
sculptures and paintings that are ideal for the south part of your living room, obtainable right here in the FS Megamall
