You cannot mention Chinese symbolism and Feng Shui without immediately bringing to mind the image of the Dragon. In Feng Shui, the Dragon is one of the most important symbols of power, luck and prosperity. The “Dragon’s Breath” is what all Feng Shui practitioners are trying to attract into their homes and businesses as it is believed to be the source for all good fortune and success. This guardian of the sky symbolizes powerful Yang energy that represents male vigor and strength and is a highly auspicious symbol to have around. The dragon has given rise to a source of inspiration for people to help them overcome adversity, gain better wisdom and foresight, and rise to the nature of all challenges, making it especially well sought-after by businessmen. With the Feng Shui dragon on your side, it is thought, nothing can stand in your way.
