In Forms Feng Shui, a home that is surrounded by positive 'Qi' should have the Four Celestial Animals at each of the four main compass directions (north, east, south, west) outside of the home, embracing the home. They aid the household in all aspects.
Who are the 4 animals?
- Black Tortoise (North)
The Black Tortoise acts as a pillar of support and shield of protection to give the residents of the house a strong backing in life and an armor for shelter against setbacks.
- Red Phoenix (South)
The Red Phoenix is the first point of contact of the house, therefore it guards the house from negative energy and positive energy will pass.
- Green Dragon (East)
The Green Dragon represents male energy 'Yang'. It helps to generate/attract wealth. Therefore, it is excellent for households with men as the main breadwinners and decision makers.
- White Tiger (West)
