Feng Shui Golden Carp
Fish in Chinese 'Yu' can mean 'surplus', hence it is also a symbol of abundance.
Stories tell of one brave carp who swam upstream against the powerful force of the Yellow river. He fought his way over waterfalls and rocks all the way to the source, to pass through the Dragon Gate. He was rewarded by being transformed into a dragon god. In Feng Shui dragons are the ultimate emblem of good luck, their breath in our life is what we are trying to attract and encourage. Thus carp’s is conducive to inviting the breath of the dragon.
Carp are believed to stimulate the ability to overcome insurmountable challenges and reach immense heights of power and wealth. They are said to bring many kinds of luck: educational luck, career luck, prosperity luck and luck in literary pursuits. If you are looking to improve your career and need extra courage, the carp is the symbol to help boost your spirits.
Carp are also a symbol of harmony and marital bliss when portrayed in a pair. Carp are great for students and those looking to improve their scholastic luck. They’re symbols of ambition, perseverance and bounty. Particularly because the Chinese word for fish, Yu sounds very much like surplus and abundance.
Here are some specific Feng Shui uses of the carp:
- Enhance its power by placing it near any water features you already have in your home, like aquariums, ponds or waterfalls
- Display it prominently in entranceways, halls, family or living rooms to invite wealth luck and money luck for your family
- For strength in the workplace, this carp serves employees, bosses and managers alike. It signifies personal growth and good money-making opportunities. It's believe to draw out your most capable character attributes to give you the competitive edge.
- If you know your personal romance or “Nien Yien” direction, place a pair of carps in this area. Their energy encourages long-lasting harmony and happiness in union.
- To purify the journey of your career path and open up clearer channels to success, place this advantageous symbol on the North corner of your office desk.
- For help in studies and educational luck, carp in the NorthEast corner of the desk will inspire you with their energy of overcoming and enduring great challenges to achieve your goals.
The history of the carp’s symbolic power can be traced to its agricultural usage. Carp have been domesticated alongside human beings for over 2,400 years. They fertilized the rice paddies and served as an emergency food source in times of famine.
Thus, they were treasured as great symbols of bounty and abundance. Their presence meant the ability of the Chinese people to live in wealth from their rice harvest or overcome the great difficulty of food shortage.
Water is another internationally recognized symbol of abundance. It secures our very survival and the more of it is around the more life that grows. Because carp spend their lives surrounded in water (except when they are leaping over rocks and waterfalls to forge the way on!) they are linked to this aquatic symbolism of prosperity and good luck. Carp are a most welcome symbol in any home.
