Feng Shui Birds List of Symbolism

1. Phoenix 

Phoenix is a celestial bird, and many people associated it closely with the Empress. It is also one of the guardians of 4 directions (Azure Dragon of the East, the Phoenix of the South, the White Tiger of the West, and the Black Turtle of the North.)

It is usually illustrated by pairing with a dragon that symbolises a blissful marriage and makes a perfect wedding gift for friends who are getting married.

2. Mandarin Ducks

This pair of love ducks, also known as “Yuan Yang” in Chinese, is one of the most commonly seen Feng Shui enhancers to improve romance luck. It is best to place it in the South-West sector of the house or room / at the bedside table.

3. Crane

The crane has always been one of the most popular auspicious birds since the olden times.

We usually find the crane featured in Chinese Feng Shui paintings because it gives a positive symbolism of longevity and long life.

4. Eagle

The eagle represents courage, advancement, and confidence that is most suitable to be placed in the office space. It symbolises bringing the business to a greater height and breakthrough amidst all obstacles and challenges.


5. Bat

You might not have guessed this right. The bat is considered an auspicious feng shui that symbolizes wealth and prosperity for the Chinese people.

However, it is rarely used in any Feng Shui applications on its own and is more used to add as a decor to any existing Feng Shui product. For example, the bar symbol can be craved together in the wealth bowl with the Fu Chinese character since the Chinese word bat( 蝙蝠) also sounds like the word Fu “福”.

6. Rooster

Displaying a Rooster in your workspace is believed to “peck away” backstabbers or betrayal, bring harmony, and help in your career advancement.

The rooster also brings excellent relationship luck for one born in the year of the Snake, Ox or Dragon. If you belong to one of these animal zodiac signs, you can display a rooster on your desk to bring you the support you need.

7. Peacock

Peacock is an earthly substitute for the celestial phoenix, and it is a representation of beauty, eternal love, purity and peace.

Many people use their feathers for personal and home decorations because they believe they can bring good luck and fortune.
