The Importance Of Choosing An Auspicious Date
Sometimse, timing is everything.
Our Chinese ancestors believed that there is a perfect time to perform a particular activity by building on the foundational theory that gave rise to BaZi and FengShui. Through the observation of the laws of nature and astronomy, people in ancient China derived a system where they were able to pin-point certain days of the year where events somehow are able to proceed extremely smoothly in order to kick-off an important life event successfully and in good spirits.
There are several techniques for auspicious date selection. The most common ones are:
- 万年通书: The Tong Shu
- 八门吉凶法: Using Qi Men Dun Jia
- 日时捷法: Assessing individual day and time
- 大黄道择日: Using the ecliptic to select dates
The principles for auspicious date selection (择日) reflect our ancestors belief of ‘unison with the Heavens’:
- 以天时相应: Avoiding bad weather, which directly affects our mood.
- 讲究地理: Geographical conditions, especially with the belief that you shouldn’t do renovations in the sector where the Grand Duke is commonly known as 太岁头上动土。
- 人和为重: Establishing good relations with other people on that important day and ensuring a positive atmosphere.
- 契合五行: To have one’s BaZi chart in tune with the date’s elements
So Many Dates. So Little Time.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many dates will be provided from each service?
Two dates will be provided for each event with leeway to increase to three or four depending on my affinity with the client.
After picking what kind of event you’re picking a date for, please indicate the date range that you ideally want the event to be held on and I will pick the best possible date from there. If not, I can recommend the dates myself too.
Will you let me know why a particular date is chosen?
