The Dragon is one of the most powerful Chinese celestial creatures, and a real lucky charm. taken up later in Japanese culture
It traditionally brings luck, authority, protection and strength.
In feng shui, the dragon is also a protector for relationships and the occupants of the house.
Being mythological, the lucky dragon has a long and rich history.
Wonderful Chinese dragons are seen in paintings, posters and on the streets during Chinese festivals.
A Chinese legend says that the dragon was born during the time of the mythical Yellow Emperor, Huang Di.
Dragons are the symbol of the emperor and are associated with the number 9, and its multiples, which is considered to bring good luck.
In the tradition, reference is made to nine different varieties of dragons: the Celestial Dragon, the Spirit Dragon, the Subterranean Dragon, the Dragon of Hidden Treasures, the Winged Dragon, the Meandering Dragon which dwells in water, the horns, the Yellow Dragon who came from the Luo River to teach another creature how to write, and finally there is the Dragon King.
In traditional Chinese culture, the dragon is believed to have the power to control the weather, the movements of the sun, wind, rain, and clouds.
Today, feng shui holds that having a dragon in the home, or at work, is conducive to good luck, success, business, wealth, and prosperity.
The dragon which is a yang symbol, is considered a strong masculine energy in Feng Shui philosophy.
In modern Feng Shui, the lucky dragon also symbolizes fertility, protection and immortality.
The Feng Shui dragon is also used to bring stability in the area of love and marriage.
The placement of a dragon (symbol of the emperor) with a Phoenix (symbol of the empress) is said to guarantee marital happiness and bliss.
According to the guidelines given by Feng Shui, the Chinese dragon should be placed, preferably, in the Southeast region of the house, or the workplace.
On the other hand, we will avoid placing a lucky dragon in places such as: the bedroom, the bathroom, the garage, or the toilet.
Generally speaking the best place to place a Feng Shui dragon would be the living room, office, or rooms where there is some activity.
The ideal number of dragons that should be kept in a house is five, according to Feng Shui tradition.
Last point, it will preferably be necessary to place your Feng Shui dragon at eye level, moreover, if the dragon has a pearl, or a crystal, in its claws, make sure that the dragon is not facing the window, or at the door.
