Who Could Use a Little Luck?

We could all use a little luck, right? Good luck, that is. So why not create your own?


I got these little dragons for Christmas. I had been wanting to get some ever since I began learning about Feng Shui.  Dragons are powerful and magical symbols that represent success, wealth, prosperity, power, good luck in love, and spiritual growth.

Dragon feng shui symbolizes masculine or “yang” energy that promotes personal power and creativity. And as a writer, I am all about creativity! Placing a dragon figure or picture in a room will activate the Chi (universal energy) of the room. The goal of feng shui is to attract, direct and nourish the Chi flow inside your home in a way that supports a good flow of Chi inside your body.

A dragon in any area of your house or workplace will bring good luck, but you can maximize it’s effectiveness by placing it in a specific location. An ideal spot would be in the Career Area of your home’s Bagua. The “bagua” is simply a grid that divides your home into different areas, like this:


This year, the Northeast bagua area of your home is hosting a very auspicious feng shui star. There is the potential of excellent feng shui energy here that can attract luck and prosperity.
Another good place to put a dragon is facing your best/lucky directions. You can find out your lucky directions by first calculating your Kua number.

However, be careful not to place dragons in zones with low energy levels like closets, bathrooms, storage areas or the garage.

It is best to place your feng shui dragon:

  • in an open space
  • at eye level
  • facing towards the house to bring in the energy of wealth
  • in your living room or dining room but not in your bedroom, since that very same yang energy will not allow you to rest peacefully.

Since dragons are such powerful symbols, you don’t need a lot of them. It’s best to only have  a few in your house or place of business (five or less).

Here’s where I put my dragons:

Good Luck Dragons

Anyone else have any  tips for bringing good luck?
