Feng Shui: Charms for Money & Wealth

Updated on July 13, 2007

Written by: Jaclyn Popola

In the basic principles of Feng Shui decorating, it is taught that every home (as well as every room within the home) is divided into eight sections as determined by the Bagua diagram. Each section, or gua, controls one of eight life aspirations such as health, career, love, wealth, travel or children. The right balance of elements and color will energize each area and allow the homeowner to prosper. It is also believed that certain objects, particularly ancient Chinese heroes, mythological animals and coins, can further enhance one's luck.

TO IMPROVE WEALTH AND PROSPERITY items are to be placed at the workplace or in the home office, on the North end of the desk or near the cash register.


Lucky Rat with Coin in Mouth: Although Western civilization sees rats as filthy creatures, they are an integral part of the Chinese zodiac, and considered to be a collector of bright and shiny objects, such as coins and gems. The rat will attract wealth into your home or business.

Arowana Fish on Coins: All objects intended for the wealth and prosperity gua will feature coins, the ultimate symbol of wealth. The Arowana Fish is associated with abundance because the live arowana has the ability to focus, a faithful demeanor and a no-nonsense attitude that gives it a superior place in the animal kingdom. The Arowana is considered the rich man's fish, and can be found in the homes of many tycoons in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Some people say that periodically stroking the fish's back energizes the good luck vibes.

Eight Galloping Horses: This object is for people who wish to improve their status or social standing. If you want to climb up the corporate ladder of success, these brilliant steeds will speed you towards your goal. Eight is a lucky number itself, and is thought to bring fame that generates an extravagant income. Their muscular bodies are also indicative of good health.

Phoenix: The rising phoenix is a popular symbol of luck and success in all endeavors. She is the goddess of the winged creatures, and will easily turn bad luck into good fortune. She will open doors you never knew existed, and seamlessly carve out the career path you are meant to take. This item tends to work best for women.

Money Frog Wealth Pot: The money frog sits atop a pile of coins and gold ingots (ancient gold medium used for exchanging goods). This item is for those who have already attained material success and wish to attain even more. The two lion heads on either side of the potbelly will protect one's wealth from being lost or squandered. Works best for retailers and trades people because the beautiful gold jewels and coins attract prosperity--a basic tenet of Feng Shui is that like attracts like.


Chinese coins are powerful symbols of wealth, especially when bound with red thread. Round with a square hole in the center, the circle represents heaven and the square represents earth. The Yang side of the coin has four Chinese characters on it, while the Yin side only has two characters. The Yang side should always be facing up. They are replicas of coins used in the 1700s during the Ching Dynasty, which was a very powerful and prosperous era.

Nine Emperor Coins: Nine bronze coins representing the nine emperors from the Ching Dynasty and a piece of red thread are a powerful combination that brings good luck in wealth. The endless mystic knot at the top will ensure ongoing everlasting fortune.

Three Chi Lin Coin: The three Chi Lin coin is a cure that works against the Three Killings energy, and will save you from violence, robbery and legal issues. If you are currently in the midst of a legal battle, are facing a lawsuit, or wish to avoid any potential legal problems in the future, carry this coin with you.

Laughing Buddha: Because he is carrying a gold ingot and several coins, the red-robed laughing Buddha signifies a great inflow of cash and riches. The calabash he carries keeps away sickness and ill health, and the "Fook" character on the amulet around his neck brings luck and prosperity. The laughing Buddha is a symbol that reminds us to remain happy and light-hearted even under the tensest of situations. Obstacles can always be overcome and challenges are meant to be conquered; we can do so by keeping a positive, optimistic frame of mind.

      I am fortunate to have found your hub. Using Feng Shui certainly sounds more humane than sacrificing the Kitchen God for the Chinese New Year.

      Nice Hub. I don't know anything about Feng Shui.

      If you are too poor to pay things, how do you buy the nice objects? Just wondering.

      Ganesh Kumar: First of all, I am a woman :) Secondly, to use the art of Feng Shui to solve your money woes, there are two statues that would be best. One is the laughing Buddha I described above, he signifies a great inflow of cash and riches. The calabash he carries keeps away sickness and ill health, and the "Fook" character on the amulet around his neck brings luck and prosperity. The laughing Buddha is a symbol that reminds us to remain happy and light-hearted even under the tensest of situations. Obstacles can always be overcome and challenges are meant to be conquered; we can do so by keeping a positive, optimistic frame of mind.

      Another good statue would be Chinese coins, particularly the Nine Emperor Coins. These coins bring good luck in wealth and should be kept either on you at all times or located in the area of your home or business where you do your bills.

      Good luck to you and I hope things start looking up soon. I know how difficult it can be when money is in short supply and you don't have enough to give. Good luck, sir.
