The Chinese love the symbol of a Cicada. In ancient China, when someone died, jade Cicada figurines were placed in their graves with them. This practise was believed to make the dead happy, and allow them to live a beautiful afterlife.
Because it has such a long life span, the Cicada is an icon of prolonged life and even immortality. In addition to this, it is said that it revitalizes youth, and increases the fertility of young couples. Also, the Cicada can protect you from those with bad intentions, repressing the effects of backstabbing colleagues or betrayal from friends.
For couples who have been trying unsuccessfully to conceive, a Cicada symbol is said to help assist in their endeavours. It also increases the chance of having a child. For those who are involved in business and competitive careers, the Feng Shui symbol is believed to stand by your side and ward of both jealous colleagues and underhanded managers. This lucky charm will protect you against bad luck in your business or at work.
You may place this good luck charm in the east or in the living room for good health luck, or in the northwest or north for protection against office politics and enemies.
