The Phoenix, the queen of all the winged creatures and the ultimate symbol of feminine power which has risen out of the ash symbolizes resurrection, infinity, and rebirth. It represents opportunities and the power of hope, one of the greatest driving forces of humanity. The Phoenix brings material comfort and good fortune to those who have a run of bad luck gives them the strength to continue, to survive difficult times even though there seems to be no hope. It brings opportunity luck in your work and career and lets you see there’s light at the end of the tunnel when you are at your lowest low.
The Phoenix is one of the four celestial animals that is an important and powerful symbol of landscape Feng Shui with South as its direction. The South is also known as the Fame and Recognition luck sector based on the Pakua Life Aspirations Theory. It is important to note that on its own, without the Dragon, the Phoenix takes on strong ‘yang’ energy. Hence placing a fiery Phoenix to activate the South sector which happens to be off the Fire element is extremely auspicious.
When placed together with a Dragon, the Phoenix embodies the feminine principle or the ‘yin’ energy, making it the pair of lovers that are connected for all of eternity, the perfect symbol of yin and yang!
The Phoenix makes an excellent gift to the matriarch of a family or to someone who is struggling with his career. Here is how you can use the wonderful Phoenix to Feng Shui your way to a better life:
1. Activate the Trigram Kun by placing the Phoenix Figurine alone in the Southwest sector of the house or the living room. This ensures the matriarch of the family will be blessed with good luck and health.
2. Display the Phoenix Figurine in the South sector of your house. Make sure it is a place on a high place e.g. shelf or cupboard where it can stand in splendor. As the South sector is the Fame and Recognition luck sector, promotion and recognition will be forthcoming to those who seize them. Efforts put into your work and career will be appreciated and acknowledged.
