The Wu Lou is one of the oldest symbols of good health and longevity. Also known as the “Gourd of Immortality” it is often carried by Sau, the God of Longevity, and is said to contain the elixir of immortality, hence its immense popularity as a symbol of long life. Many ancient Chinese paintings feature a Wu Lou.
This year’s Wu Lou has been designed in a vibrant red colour and is decorated with the magical implements of the Eight Immortals, symbolising eight types of good things entering your life. These are: the sword for strength, a lotus flower for virtue, a flute bringing harmony, a flower basket to add beauty to your life, a fan for protection, castanets for power, a long bamboo “fish drum” to bring longevity, and the Wu Lou representing good health.
In 2024, the Illness Star flies into the SE. However, with the start of the new Period 9, the No 2 Illness Star also brings wealth when activated. Therefore, the SE is the best place to display the new Abundance Wu Lou, which brings good health and longevity, but also a life blessed with much happiness and good fortune.
Recommended placement in 2024:
- In the SE of your home.
- If you are already having health issues, you can place it on your bedside table to speed up your recovery
