is moon cactus good for home

I am from an orthodox family where many traditional beliefs are being practiced. That’s why many hot debates occur over potting moon cactus in my home. Finally, I decided to research this issue and tried to bring out the truth about the indoor planting of the moon cactus.

Moon refers to female energy, Yin energy, life energy i.e. healing energy. Moon cactus undoubtedly refers to good vibration for a home. Moon cactus absorb life energy from the moon and emanate that energy to the house. So moon cactus is a blessed plant for home dwellers.

There are many debates on whether the moon cactus should be kept at home or not. It is up to your belief system. Besides, it is also mentionable that where you place moon cactus in your home is a factor.

Many experiments are being done on the advantages and disadvantages of indoor plants by many reputed universities, which I am going to share here with you.

Does Moon  Cactus Bring Good Luck?

It is true that the moon cactus can bring good luck or bad luck, depending on where it is placed in your home. According to Feng Shui’s belief, the moon cactus can attract bad energy and can transmit to the home. 

Why does it bring negative energy? Its prickly thorns are the symbol of negativity. It is a common belief for millennia that leaves for good and thorns for bad.

Fear of pain, financial loss, misfortune, distress, sleeplessness,  and diseases demotivated many people to place moon cactus at home. But that is not the full truth; this belief is from partial truth. Let’s explore the full story…

Placing the moon cactus at homes can bring either bad energy or good energy. If you place it at your doorstep, living room, or bedroom,   it will be a bad sign for you. However, placing it in your window or terrace will bring more vibrating energy for you and will be a good protector. It’s the same thorns will now repel negative energy.
