Where to point your money toad for financial good fortune

In Eastern cultures, especially Chinese folklore, the three-legged money toad (aka Chan Chu or Jin Chan) is a symbol of financial good fortune.

With deep symbolic roots, the money toad is generally portrayed sitting on top of a pile of ancient Chinese coins. It holds a gold coin between its lips while a tasselled string tethering yet more coins emerges from the side of its mouth.

Small statues of the money toad can be found in many Chinese homes and businesses in the hope that it will bring them wealth and prosperity.

Where to place a money toad

Positioning the money toad for maximum influence is of great concern to Chinese people.

It’s crucial the placement complies with the ancient philosophy of feng shui – a manner of arranging objects so that energy, or “chi”, flows gently and smoothly throughout the premises.

Specific feng shui principles for the Money Toad decree it should be located inside a home or business on a diagonal from the entrance way. It should never face the door, but rather look towards the heart of the building so as to draw money inside while at the same time fending off bad financial influences.

In a mark of respect, the money toad should be placed on a raised surface – never on the floor.
