Last night Gregory and I did another version of the "Welcoming the Wealth God" ceremony. THis one involves an altar set up outside the front door with offerings in sets of 5 (wine, tea, sweets, fruits, joss ingots and money, incense)--this was taken before I brought our Wealth God to sit on the altar. There are a series of prostrations, toasts, throwing the Taoist indicators to see if he's "arrived" and bringing him into the house with more prostrations and throwing the indicators again to see if he's "seated" on the altar. All of the joss paper is burned as part of the ceremony.
Afterwards, we did the the "Rolling in the Wealth" ceremony and our floor covered with oranges, kumquats, gold coins, Feng Shui coins and gold ingots. It's soooo fun and beautful and offers an incredibly prosperous mindset!
