Symlinks are ways of creating a shortcut. They tell the Operating System that contents of file x are the contents of file y. If you edit something in the file x and save it, the change will be visible in file y, vice versa.
ln -s /real/file/location /shortcut/location
If you wanted to move a folder username.git from /var to /mnt/new/drive/location and create a symlink, you can do the following:
mv /var/username.git /mnt/new/drive/location ln -s /mnt/new/drive/location/username.git /var/username.git
Now, you could access the contents of that directory through either /mnt/new/drive/location/username.git or through /var/username.git.
