What Chung Kwei symbolizes and its Application in Symbolism Feng Shui:
According to legend, Chung Kwei was a bright scholar from Tung-nan Shan of Shensi Province. He was as famous for his outstanding scholastic abilities as he was for his repulsive and fierce countenance. Chung Kwei who was a great exorcist was given the title “Great Spiritual Chaser of Demons for the Whole Empire” and is also known as ‘Star God of Literature’ for his literary skill. It is frequently used as a protective charm to ward off evil spirits and people with bad intentions, especially for those involved in businesses with high-value goods. Chung Kwei is also used to enhance one’s educational luck.
Chung Kwei is best displayed near the entrance of your home or office facing out so that he can keep an eye on everyone entering your living space. It will provide potent protection from enemies, robberies, and theft. For those in high profile professions, Chung Kwei will help to prevent backstabbing and ill will competitions.
The presence of Chung Kwei in your home will effectively dissolve any bad luck caused by the malignant Flying Star ‘5 Yellow’ which brings accidents, death, and mayhem, regardless of which year it is and which compass sector it flies to.
