Pi Xiu (Pi Yao) Symbol and Meaning
Pi Xiu is an imaginary creature in Chinese tale. It looks like a mix of dragon and lion. It is a symbol of wealth and fortune and is one of the most popular Feng Shui celestial animal for bringing good luck.
The Pi Yao (or Pi Xiu) is the only feng shui cure used in the flying stars school of feng shui to protect against a specific type of negative energy, called the Grand Duke (Tai Sui).
Pi Xiu can be used either alone or in pairs.
As with most traditional Chinese feng shui cures, the roots of the Pi Xiu (Pi Yao) symbol lie deep in Chinese mythology. With the fierce look of a winged lion, the mythical Pi Xiu can ward off evil spirits and protect anyone from harm.
Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) has a voracious appetite that seems to have no end; this makes him a symbol of good fortune and prosperity. The display of a Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) statue in business is considered a good luck feng shui cure to attract a never-ending flow of money.
A popular use of Pi Yao (Pi Xiu) is as a personal amulet, such as a bracelet or a keychain, because it allows you to always have your loyal personal protector nearby!
The Pi Xiu bracelet is best worn with the left hand, instead of the right hand, because it is believed that if you wear it on the left, it symbolizes attracting good wealth luck and if you wear it on the right, it is giving away your wealth to other people.
