The chrysanthemum is an excellent model of tranquility and an alleviation of grief or anxiety. If one is addicted to gambling and speculation; and is unable to kick off the bad habits, one can consider placing a painting of chrysanthemum in the bedroom. A word of advice, it should on no account be placed at the wealth position. Since the life span of chrysanthemum is rather brief, it is inauspicious in terms of attracting wealth.
I have a lotus pond in my backyard, right now the buds are forming and soon they will start to bloom. I shall post a picture here when they are in full bloom.
Lotus represents summer and symbolizes attainment, nature and purity. Lotus grows in mud and rises untainted several centimeters to flower. Hence a famous statement in the Chinese culture: Lotus, while growing from mud, is unstained. It serves as praise for a dignified woman who is high in her morals. In many Asian cultures, lotus represents elegance, beauty, perfection and grace. It is also a divine symbol and spiritual pursuit of purity of body, speech, and mind.
One can hang a painting of lotus in one’s bedroom if a wife or husband is involved in an undesired affair of the heart. It is also known that people who are engaged in unpleasant livelihood can bathe and purify themselves with lotus flowers.
Peony is also known as the flower of prosperity and it is considered the “queen of flowers”. It represents good fortune, success and honor. Since it blooms in the spring time, it is a symbol of spring when all nature awakes and starts yet another cycle of life. Thus peony symbolizes growth, hope and wealth. It is a personification of female beauty, at the same time it denotes courage for a man.
In the Chinese communities, if you noticed one, six, or eight stalks of violet or red peonies decorating their homes or shops (usually they are placed at the Sheng Qi or wealth direction), it is a sign that their wealth will be enhanced.
