  • In ancient China, the dried, hollowed out gourd was used as a container to carry water, rice wine, medicines, or Taoist elixirs and herbal potions of great spiritual power.
  • This symbol is believed to bring longevity, vitality, and good health while warding off sickness and ill fortune.
  • The two halves of the gourd in Taoist belief represents the harmony between Heaven and Earth.
  • The two halves also form the number “8” which is a good luck number of wealth and prosperity.

This Metal Hulu is perfect for weakening the influence of the Earth element Illness Flying Star #2. 

On the bottom of the Hulu Gourd: 
The Ba-Gua 八卦 (meaning 8-trigram symbols) is pictured.  These patterns of 3 broken and unbroken lines represents the 8 fundamental elements of Taoist cosmology arranged in a way that embodies harmony and balance.  In the very center of this is the Yin-Yang symbol or:
太极图     tàijítú 
also representing balance and harmony.
