Each zodiac has designated a deity who will offer special attention and help to the particular zodiac to provide great power in clearing obstacles and inviting wealth from endless resources. The Rat’s guardian deity is the Thousand Armed Avalokiteshvara whose miraculous energy helps eliminate disasters, lighten problems, attract good fortune and bring good health. No effort will be spared to look after the well-being of the Rat who falls under her special protection and guardianship.
This is a lovely emblem of the Thousand Armed Avalokiteshvara or more commonly known as Kuan Yin – the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. It is carved from pristine white coral which is considered magical in the realm of crystals and gemstones, associated with emotional healing and protection. The Goddess is shown seated with her many pairs of arms in various gestures of blessings. A thousand arms serve to scatter blessings and comfort in all directions simultaneously, alleviating the sufferings of mankind with infinite expressions of her mercy and compassion. As befitting the protector/charge relationship, the Rat is shown in complete repose at the foot of Kuan Yin, calm and relaxed, knowing that he is being watched over by heavenly eyes.
If you are a Rat (what is my Chinese zodiac?), make sure you enjoy the protection of your guardian deity by wearing or having the Thousand Armed Avalokiteshvara Pendant near you at all times. You may also display the amulet in the North, hang it in the bedroom or keep it together with personal belongings.
