FROGS IN FENG SHUI
When I was a young girl, my siblings and and I used to sing a little limerick that my Grandma taught us to invoke on rainy days. It went like this: 'Rain, rain, go away! Come again another day,' which might be an appropriate invocation to utter on today's 'Rain Day.' Unless, of course, you're hoping to see some rain pouring down on your umbrella. In that case, you might want to explore some of the history, legend and lore that connects the frog with an ability to bring rain. In fact, the frog has long been associated with magic and mysterious occult-like abilities. In ancient times frogs were actually kept as pets, especially if there were any need to increase fertility. It's also believed that keeping a frog either inside or outside the home will likely attract new friends, new connections, and even new job opportunities. A frog hopping into your home is a sign of coming good luck, but killing a frog will send bad juju your way. But what about the frog and rain? Ancient legend holds that if you need to see some serious soaking rain you should take a garden frog inside the house and place it in a dark space for a few minutes. This petitions the rain gods to send showers that will rain right down on you!
