This figurine depicts the symbol of Double Carps determined to cross the Dragon Gate against the strong current of the Yellow River. Legend has it that carps will turn into dragons upon crossing the gate. They will have to swim upstream and jump rapids in order to achieve their goal. The carps have therefore become an emblem of perseverance and a symbol of pursuit for high ambitions and excellence, a powerful symbol that brings literary and scholastic luck, perfect for students or anyone pursuing a new skill. The carp is also a Feng Shui symbol suggestive of harmony and marital bliss, especially when two of them are seen swimming together.
Here is how the Carps can be used to Feng Shui your way to a better life:
1. Display this auspicious carp anywhere in your home to enjoy abundant good fortune.
2. If you need to achieve good grades in examinations, display an image of the carp on your study desk to energize for education and knowledge luck or in the Northeast corner of your study room. The Northeast governs education luck according to the Pakua 8 Life Aspirations Theory.
3. For a happy marriage and to ensure joyous unions, display the double carp symbol in the southwest of your home or in your personal Nien Yen or Romance direction based on your Kua number (Eight Mansion Theory).
4. Place it on your work desk in your office and if possible, in the North corner of the desk. It will help you to climb the career ladder.
