Pixiu is fierce and powerful by nature. It is also believed to be an animal capable of driving away evil spirits and bringing happiness and good luck to its owner. It is considered a house-guarding animal with the ability to ward off unplesant things and exhibit loyalty in protecting its master. That is the reason why many Chinese people like to wear jade Pixiu as a form of ornament to be carried around wherever they go.
Pixiu has a mouth but no anus, so it just swallows up things without passing anything out. Hence, it is regarded as a divine accumulator of wealth from everywhere without letting anything out. Pixiu is used in feng shui not only to ward off evil spirits but also bring in wealth for its owner. As such, businessmen like to keep Pixiu in the corner of their home or offices to bring good luck to their businesses and finance. As for gamblers, they like to take Pixiu with them whenever they visit the casino.
