2/21「龍抬頭」 做事旺財,出人頭地

2月21日是農曆二月初二,除了是土地公生日,也是「龍抬頭」的日子,可把握時間前往住家附近的土地公廟求財;另傳統習俗認為在這天剪頭髮,會使人鴻運當頭,象徵能出人頭地,所以俗諺說「二月二剃龍頭,一年都有精神頭」。


農曆2月初二又稱「龍抬頭」,是傳統節日之一,傳說天上掌管降雨之神龍王抬頭,代表今後雨水增多,有利於春天耕作;另一種說法是,龍王因為想念自己失去的女兒,因此總是在這天從海底抬頭,望著失去女兒的方向,以寄思念。


這天是引龍錢招財、補財庫的好日子,只要在早上7時到中午12時之間,在家裡大廳或辦公室的財位上擺放圓形的小容器當作聚寶盆,並在盆內放入12枚不限定國家的硬幣,代表錢財從四面八方而來;接著再取自來水,並在心中觀想土地公,說明取水目的是要引龍錢入宅,默念完畢後,將水倒入聚寶盆內,擺放到發財水自然蒸發,即擁有招財富貴的好運能量。


除此之外,這天可吃春餅、麵條、米飯、餛飩、餃子進行開運,其中吃春餅代表「吃龍鱗」,圓形的餅皮排起來就像龍的鱗片一樣;吃麵條則是取其外型像鬍鬚,代表「扶龍鬚」;吃米飯為「吃龍子」;吃餛飩即為「吃龍眼」;而吃餃子稱為「吃龍耳」,都是取外型相似而成名。


人們相信這天吃龍食整年都會「龍威大發」,而這些習俗都是為了喚醒龍王,祈求龍王保佑風調雨順,農民能獲得好收成、大豐收。另外,還可吃些爆米花,由於黃金一般的玉米,遇熱會爆開,人稱「金豆開花」,也是好兆頭。


而傳統習俗上也認為,在這天剃頭,會使人鴻運當頭、福星高照,也象徵能出人頭地,所以有句俗諺說「二月二剃龍頭,一年都有精神頭」;正因為如此,過去每逢二月二這天,理髮店總是生意興隆。
