Horse Significance of Feng Shui and Use
Feng Shui Horse is one of the good luck symbols widely known to bring fame, recognition, and success in career, together with the Dragon Turtle.
In classical Feng shui applications, the image of the horse brings the energy of success, fame, freedom, and speed. Other characteristics horses represent are prosperity, forward motion, growth, loyalty, and stamina. Moreover, all horses are associated with the feng shui element of fire, as well as strong yang (male) energy.
- A horse or horse in motion can help you regain focus and direct you toward a path to success.
- Red horses, especially when they're galloping, are symbols of strength and aggression. These depictions are commonly used in offices to promote success.
- White horses in motion help to ensure a steady or smooth inflow of money for businesses and households.
- Horses positioned near each other can strengthen business and personal relationships. Horses depicted in larger groups are strong symbols of power and victory. Grouped horses should be moving together to symbolize partnership, family, and combined strength.
Horse Depictions and Placement to Avoid
As with all feng shui symbols, improper placement or conflicting symbolism can have a negative effect. Here's what to steer clear of when using horses for feng shui:
- Avoid placing horses in wood or metal feng shui element areas, so you don't conflict with the symbol's fire association. The wood element is connected to the east and southeast areas of your space, and metal is associated with the west and northwest areas.
- Do not place horse images or figures in the bedroom. Their power and vigor—particularly when the horses are in motion—can bring too much active energy to the room, which should be a place of serenity and relaxation.
- Avoid horses that are sad, angry, or fighting one another. These depictions can generate conflict among household members or business associates. Horses should appear happy and have a sense of purpose for the most positive effect.
- Stay away from images with horses that are incomplete, abstract, or segmented. These depictions can promote a sense of confusion or lack of control.
- Do not face galloping horses outside a building or toward a doorway. Their energy should be directed into the space, not away from it.
