4. Italy: full moon
To attract more money into their lives, the Italians do not turn to the young month, as in Russia, but to the full moon for help. Seeing her in the sky, they take a coin in each hand and say: “Hello, Moon, bring me good luck!”.
Another herald of wealth in Italy is a spider encountered at night.
But spilling olive or sunflower oil in Italy is in no case possible: everything acquired by overwork flows with it.
5. China: conversations with money
The Chinese know a lot about financial well-being: they have many signs to attract money – keep a dish of fruit in the kitchen, carry a bag of salt in your pocket, keep a pineapple in the southeastern part of the house , often eat marmalade and peanuts, make a charm of three yuan tied with a red thread.
Even a chance meeting with a cow in China promises quick profits.
But heartfelt conversations with banknotes increase wealth best of all: the Chinese greet money, express all respect to them, thank them, say kind words. In the process, in no case should you giggle and be ironic: money is serious!
6. Japan: money cat, which in translation means “beckoning cat” or “inviting cat”. A figurine of a cat waving its paw is often displayed in the windows of trade shops, shops, and restaurants. If his right paw is raised, he attracts profit, the left – visitors. The maneki-neko has been used as a talisman since the 19th century. According to one of the legends, the cat, beckoning the prince to the temple with his paw, saved him from a thunderstorm, and he gave money to restore the monastery. According to another, the poor old woman could not feed the cat and drove her away. But the cat, having dreamed of the hostess, advised her to mold her clay copy and put it by the road. Passers-by began to buy figurines and the old woman got rich.
And in Japan they believe in the magic of the number 8, symbolizing good luck, wealth and prosperity. To bring all this into the house, you need to decorate the rooms with exactly 8 paintings or other works of art.
