Fu star, or Fuk, is said to be the personification of the planet Jupiter, which in traditional Chinese astrology was believed to be very auspicious (lucky) and represents good fortune. He is commonly depicted in scholar's dress and holding either a scroll representing knowledge and learning, or a child, which represents the transmission of good luck to future generations.
Lu star, or Luk, is said to be the personification of Ursa Major, the sixth star in the Wenchang cluster in traditional Chinese astronomy. The Chinese character Lu refers to the salary of a government official and he represents prosperity, authority and influence. He is usually depicted in Mandarin dress and holding either a ru yi (sceptre), a symbol of power and authority, or a golden ingot, a popular wealth symbol.
Shou star, or Sau, is said to be the personification of Carinae, or Corina, the star of the South Pole in Chinese astronomy and it is said that he controls the life spans of all the mortals here on earth. Shou Star is customarily depicted with a high, domed forehead and carrying a peach which is the symbol of immortality, or a gourd filled with Elixir of Life.
According to Feng Shui guidelines, Fu Star, Lu Star and Shou Star should always be placed together in a row in a specific order - Fu Star on the left, Lu Star in the center and Shou Star on the right. They should always be placed on a HIGH table or shelf over looking your dining or living room as a mark of honor and to attract happiness, good fortune and long life into your home. They must never be placed low, or on the floor as it is very disrespectful to them, as well as to all deities.
Additionally, they should never be placed in a bedroom or the kitchen, share the same wall as a toilet or bathroom, be placed low facing the dining table as we do not want to eat while the gods drool looking at the food, or facing the main entrance door because we do not want to employ them to guard our door. For protection and support in business, place them high on a shelf behind you in your office to provide protection, support and good fortune.
