Bronze Wu Lou with Five Dragons

Hulu (葫芦) is the Chinese term for the bottle gourd or calabash. Also known as Wu Lou or Wu Lu, the gourd has been an icon of good health, longevity, prosperity and abundance of blessings for many centuries.

As the gourd is rich in symbolism, it has become an important tool in the enhancement and cure of feng shui related problems.

For health and longevity enhancement, the metal gourds often have images of the Dragons, Eight Immortals, bagua, longevity symbol, Eight Immortals’ spiritual tools, cranes, deers and Chinese herbs (such as Ling Zhi) on them. These representations help to strengthen the gourd’s potency as a health and longevity enhancer.

As for prosperity enhancement, the metal or wood gourds are usually decorated with motifs of good fortune and good-luck symbols such as dragon images.

In Flying Star Feng Shui, the 5-Yellow Star(Star #5) and Black Illness Star(Star #2) are sickness-related stars. Besides causing illnesses, these stars can also cause injuries and misfortunes. The position of the stars changes every year. If they happened to be at your main door or the centre of the house, then the health of the household will be affected.

According to the Five Elements theory, Metal Element can weaken Earth Element. As the sickness stars are of Earth Element, metal gourds would be the cure for the health problem. Furthermore, the gourds themselves have the potency to absorb and confine the negative energies in their endless bottom, thus shielding you from the sickness qi.

For prevention purposes, you can display a brass/copper gourd each at the location of these two stars.

(Note: For 2019, the 5-Yellow Star and Black Illness Star are at SOUTHWEST and NORTHEAST sector, respectively.)

In Feng Shui, the East sector is the general health luck corner. Put a brass/copper gourd in the east of the living room to enhance the health luck of the family.

Displaying a brass/copper gourd near the front door can bring peace and safety to the household too.

Things to note:

- Many gourds sold in feng shui stores have a red ribbon or red thread tied around them, said to be for enhancement or activation purposes. However, if the gourds are to be displayed in the locations of the 5-Yellow Star and Black Illness Star, then the red thread or red ribbon should best be avoided because the red colour (Fire Element) will enhance the sickness-related stars (Earth Element).

- As with all feng shui items, once the gourd is damaged or tarnished, it has to be replaced.
