What is the Chinese Almanac?
The ancient chinese almanac (better known
as Thoong Sing or Tung Shu) has more than a thousand years of
history and research, and it is the Chinese system of measuring
and recording the passage of time. The system of timekeeping in
feng shui is a combination of the lunar and solar calendars, or
more appropriately, a lunisolar calendar. It actually records
the months that mirror the movements of the moon and the years
reflect with the seasons of the sun.
The almanac is used to indicate traditional
festivals and to select dates for important occasions such as
renovation, wedding and moving house. For the farmers, it is used
to time agricultural activities in the countryside. Ordinarily,
the Chinese live their daily lives on a monthly basis according
to the lunar cycle, which mark the new moon and full moon days.
On the other hand, the farming community, feng shui masters and
fortune-tellers subscribe to Solar Hsia calendar which follows
the time of the sun.
For centuries such ancient almanac has
been consulted for suitable dates on everything to assist us in
Feng Shui practice and forecast individual's luck for the day.
Today, it is widely used by many giant corporates to advice on
selection of appropriate days for almost every important activity,
from groundbreaking ceremonies to signing new agreements, launching
of a new products, opening a new office, wedding ceremonies to
be held, renovations and moving houses.
2013 Spring Ox Diagram
2013 Spring Ox and God of Spring
The spring ox diagram appears on the first
page of the chinese almanac every year. It foretells the weather
for the upcoming year, which is a very important aspect in a farmer's
life. The diagram will show the spring ox and the god of spring.
They will come in different and unique characteristics in different
years. These characteristics (color, size, posture, outfit etc) will determine everything spelt for the year.
1. The year of water snake is a yin year because the tail of the
ox bends to the right. Also the mouth of the ox shuts instead of
opening, therefore confirming that it is a yin year.
2. The God of Spring is an old man because it is the year of the
snake. In other years, he could appear as a young man or a boy.
Whether the God of Spring has the face of a child, a young man or
an old man depends on the earthly branch of the year. He appears
as a child in rat, rabbit, horse and rooster years. He appears as
a young man in ox, dragon, sheep and dog years. He appears as an
old man in tiger, snake, monkey and pig years.
3. The God of Spring is not wearing any shoes indicating floods
and heavy rain throughout the year.
4. The God of Spring stands in front of the Ox implicates that the
Lunar New Year is more than 5 days after the Lap Chun. If it is
less than five days ahead of/behind the Lap Chun, he will stand
side by side with the Ox.
***Important Day Taboo for Extremely Important
It is vital to know that there are a few days
in every month which are prohibited for important celebrations even
though the feng shui almanac indicates the days to be good or excellent.
Important celebrations are such as wedding celebration, signing
an important contract, starting a new business and starting a new
career. These dates are known as the "San Niang" Killing
days (San Niang Shar). No matter how good the almanac describe these
days, please avoid them by all means.
The "San Niang" Killing days are 3rd, 7th, 13th, 18th, 22nd and
27th day of every LUNAR month. Please take note that the days refer
to "lunar days" and does not refer to western calendar
Most inexperienced masters or younger generation who refers to modernized
almanac may not be aware of this important rule of thumb. We would
like to share this secret tip that has never been revealed over
the internet before because we have seen so many cases of bad spell
happening to those who have chosen these days, such as divorce,
collapse of business, unsuccessful career etc.
Some grand masters will deliberately pick these days, which is termed
as "Dou Shan" Killing (Dou Shan Shar).Unless the eight characters
("phat chee" or "ba zi") of the person concerned
is in great favour of that day. To pick this day, if one is lucky
enough, the luck will turn 180 degrees for the better. On the contrary,
it will bring disastrous results. Therefore, it is recommended to
avoid these days by all means to prevent regrets.
How to Read the Almanac?
1. One will have to find out their planned
agenda for the day. Eg. moving house, carrying out a renovation
2. Then find a day that does not conflict ones zodiac and age.
This is very important. If the day is in conflict with ones zodiac,
then avoid carrying out the important agenda by all means.
3. Check also to make sure that the day falls on a San Niang Afflicted
Day. If yes, avoid it by all means.
4. Weigh if the day is only good for that specific task or if
it is generally a good day. One can guess if the day is a lucky
day, fairly lucky day, neutral day or unlucky day by checking
if the day is suitable to manage the number of task. The more
tasks one can carry out, the better is day's luck. For example,
if a day is good for opening business but not good for renovation
or moving house, then it is considered as a neutral day. But if
a day is good for everything, then it can be considered as a lucky
