CHUANG MU

Chinese Love Goddess

Also known as Chuangmu, Ch'uang-Mu

Goddess of the Bedchamber

She is the Goddess of Beds and everything that happens in them. She looks after sleep, sex, love, and childbirth.

For a good night’s rest, you should leave offerings of tea, wine or After Eight Mints. If you are looking for something other than sleep, she can help with that too, but you should probably leave much larger offerings.

Her husband is Chuang Gong, with whom she shares bedroom duties, and her festival is at the time of the Lantern Festival. This is probably a propitious time for success in the bedroom.

Sleep well!
