When choosing a lucky totem for your house, it must be one you’re aligned with. If you’re not feeling drawn toward a particular genre, use astrology!
Ok Mystic, community challenge time!
The interwebs have been trawled, your House Witchery has been scoured, my unconscious has been plunged (ok, exaggeration – it was more like a 2 min elevator pitch, whatever), and nothing entirely addresses a need I have. And that need is to fill a blank wall in my home office – but with what???
I want an auspicious subject, almost spell-like. You see I’m right at the super awks part of a career change; shiny new degree in the creative industries but no job. And I am simultaneously yoked by debts to a stale but successful technical career. And I’m doing all of this out of my home office, which I LOVE. It’s got a north-facing window for soft light, a little couch and awesome lighting for every mood and job. Add to this the brand spanking DIY bookshelves to finally give my books a worthy home and a monochrome color palette. I don’t care if it’s not Feng Shui compliant, I love the vibe in this room. So the last element to add in my office is a biiiiig image to fill the blank wall, and given what I stated above that image needs to radiate serious creativity/prosperity energy.
A Lucky Totem That Encapsulates Creativity And Prosperity
However, I can’t find a myth, or symbol, or element, or whatever that embodies creativity and prosperity, so I’m asking for help. Mystic, I know you’ll get the importance – I remember the desk runes and your frequent advice for how to House Witch in modern ways for modern times. Because, as practical and powerful as Feng Shui can be, some of the imagery is very ancient Asian mythology which is cool, but I have no relationship with that. I’m not gonna look at a painting of a frog chewing coins and think, ‘Yeah. Empire building.’ The one idea I kind of like is Mer-Goat. Don’t know why because I have empty space in Cap, maybe it’s the water-earth combo or the cool hybrid creature thing. But then I think of the scary patriarchal Capricorn myths, and it puts me off.
So, audience question time: what image does the community think I should put on my home office wall to encourage creativity and prosperity? And it can be anything, because my mission is to paint it myself. Apart from being a fun little project, it will add more power to the summoning of awesomeness.
Mystic, thanks for building a community/safe-space where we can put questions like this out there. Can’t wait to read the response!
Every Symbol Invokes That Energy – So Know What It Means
Well, you could do a gigantic dollar sign a la Andy Warhol or if you want the full Saturn experience, the Saturn symbol? Pentacles? Although they, just like any image of Capricorn, could look a bit Baphomet/Satanic. You might get sued by that Church, a la the creators of the new Sabrina.
And FYI, the confusion between Capricorn and the Devil is looked at here, in this post from the archives.
With the new Earth Era and the Capricorn Convergence being the incoming energetic themes, anything Earth is supportive. In Five Element Cycle – Fire/Red/Flame – supports Earth. Or you could depict a mountain/gigantic crystals? But every time you do something with intent – whether it is a tattoo or a painting – you are activating that energy. So I would not go around lightly invoking Saturn-Capricorn Vibe without a clearer concept of what it is doing in your birth chart.
So, I would go with the symbol/imagery of whatever is in your Fourth House and – as you want this to be a prosperity totem – the sign on the cusp of your 2nd house, the $$$ sector. See your Astral DNA if you are not sure of the sign. Bonus points for thematically including the Sun, Moon, or anything else in your 2nd House.
For example, if Pisces was your second house, you could do a gigantic wave and some Pisces symbols? If it were the Sun or Leo, giant glitter paint sunflowers and lions?
What does everyone else think?
