This mythical creature is said to appear every full moon near homes that will receive the good news of increased wealth or monetary gain. Often portrayed sitting on a bed of wealth bearing a coin in its mouth, it is a wonderful symbol for wealth and career luck and for the patriarch of the family. The Money Frog is used for attracting wealth and abundance and can often be seen near cash registers, receptions, managers’ desks, and offices in Oriental countries.
Here are some ways you can use the Money Toad to Feng Shui your way to a better life.
1. Placing a Money Toad in the North part of your home or office adds impetus to your career and eliminates obstacles to your work. According to the energy map of the 8 Trigrams Chart, the North governs your Career luck. This will help garner support from your boss or co-workers and protect you from the negative intentions of your competitors.
2. Display the Money Toad in the southeast corner of your living room or home to attract lots of money luck, this being the Wealth Sector as spelled out in Pakua Life Aspiration Theory.
3. Put a Money Toad near the cash register of your business premises to attract sales and increase profits.
4. In Flying Star Feng Shui, Money Frogs made from metal (brass, bronze, pewter, etc.) can be used to ward off the evil influences of #2 Black Star and #5 Wu Wang. The #2 Sickness Star causes illnesses and ailments whilst the deadly 5 Yellow brings a host of misfortunes to occupants. Placing the metal Tortoise in the affected sectors will disperse these hostile energies.
Note: NEVER keep money frogs in the bedroom, toilets, or kitchen.
