The chinese Tung Shu (Tung Sing) or almanac is normally present in every feng shui practitioner’s home to make sure smooth sailing of endeavours and crucial enterprises. When it comes to advising people on how to start a new business or venture, no feng shui master or practitioner can do without the almanac.
It also translates the Chinese lunar calendar’s new and full moon days into the Roman calendar. You can also use the auspicious times and dates in this schedule to attend an interview, sign a contract, meet somebody important, throw a big celebration, have a one-on-one conversation with your boss, clear your home space, perform feng shui rituals, move furniture, make wealth vases, invite wealth gods into your home, and place feng shui symbols. It’s also crucial that you don’t participate in any of the major activities if the zodiac sign you were born under is having a terrible day.
What really is the Chinese Almanac, and how does it work?
The ancient Chinese almanac (also known as Thoong Sing or Tung Shu) is the Chinese system of measuring and documenting the passage of time, with over a thousand years of history and research. In feng shui, timekeeping is done using a lunisolar calendar, which is a blend of lunar and solar calendars. It truly keeps track of the months, which correspond to the moon’s motions, and the years, which correspond to the sun’s seasons.
Traditional holidays are listed in the almanac, as well as dates for key events such as renovations, weddings, and relocations. It is used by farmers to schedule their agricultural chores in the countryside.The Chinese, for the most part, spend their lives on a monthly basis, with the full moon and full moon days marking the beginning and end of the month. The agricultural community, feng shui gurus, and fortune-tellers, on the other hand, use the Solar Hsia calendar, which is based on the sun’s time.
For centuries, such an ancient almanac has been used to determine appropriate dates for everything in order to aid us in Feng Shui practise and predict person’s luck for the day. Many large corporations now utilise it to advise on the best days for practically any key activity, from groundbreaking rituals to accepting new agreements, introducing new products, establishing a new office, holding wedding ceremonies, restorations, and moving residences.
Essential Day Taboo for Extra-Special Occasions
Even though the feng shui almanack says that the days are good or great, it is critical to understand that there are a few days in each month that are forbidden for major festivities. Weddings, signing important contracts, starting a new business, and beginning a new career are all important occasions to commemorate. The “San Niang” Killing Days occur on these dates (San Niang Shar). Please, no matter how successful the almanack describes these days, stay away from them.
Every LUNAR month, the 3rd, 7th, 13th, 18th, 22nd, and 27th days are designated as “San Niang” Killing Days. Please keep in mind that the days are “lunar days” and not “western calendar days.”
This important rule of thumb may go unnoticed by most unpracticed masters or the younger generation who consult a modernised almanack. We’d want to offer this never-before-seen secret advice since we’ve witnessed so many incidents of terrible luck befalling people who have selected certain days, such as divorce, company failure, and job failure, among other things.
Some grand masters may choose certain days on purpose, a practise known as “Dou Shan” killing (Dou Shan Shar).
Unless the person’s eight characteristics (“phat chee” or “ba zi”) are very favourable to that day. If one is lucky enough to choose this day, one’s luck will change 180 degrees for the better. It will, on the contrary, have devastating consequences. As a result, it is strongly wise to stop these days at all costs in order to avoid regrets.
What Is the Best Way to Read the Almanac?
1. Find out what is on one’s daily schedule. For example, relocating, renovating, and so on.
2. Next, choose a date that does not contradict with one’s zodiac sign or age. This is a critical point. If one’s zodiac is in opposition with the day, avoid carrying out crucial tasks at all costs.
3. Double-check that the date occurs on a San Niang Afflicted Day. If this is the case, stay away from it at all costs.
4. Consider whether the day is simply suitable for that specific work or if it is a wonderful day in general. Verifying if the day is appropriate to handle the number of tasks can help determine whether it is a lucky day, a fairly lucky day, a neutral day, or an unlucky day. The more things one can complete, the better one’s day will be. For example, if a day is suitable for starting a business but not for refurbishment or relocation, it is referred to as a neutral day. However, if a day is beneficial in every way, it might be termed a lucky day.
Dates for the Big Cleaning in 2022
This is a Chinese tradition to end the year with a large spring cleaning and enter the new year with a fresh new vitality (sweeping). It is a day to either keep good luck, get rid of bad luck, or welcome fresh luck for the next year. Everyone in that specific household will feel sluggish and psychologically cluttered in the new year if a large-scale cleaning is not done.
The dates listed below are ideal for Big Cleaning:
1. Rabbit conflict on January 8, 2022
2. Pig dispute begins on January 16, 2022.
3. On the 27th of January 2022, there will be a dog conflict
To avoid injury, those whose zodiac signs are in opposition with that day should avoid cleaning tasks.
1. No “fortune telling” is ever done with a Chinese almanac. It shouldn’t be used to verify prior occurrences. It is stated that checking the almanack to see if the date of a “past occurrence” is good or bad may bring great catastrophe. A Chinese almanack is a calendar that helps you plan activities for the future.
2. Date choice should be done alone by you and applied exclusively to yourself. If you are not from the energy world and have not received a “ang pow” (red packet) from the person you are picking the date for, you must never do it for “other people.” Otherwise, the person for whom you are selecting dates will take away your good fortune.
Resumption of Business and Work in 2022
This is the most significant day to remember when starting a new job or business in the new year to see if the year ahead will be easy, peaceful, and lucky. When work is restarted on a lucky day, one will feel a surge of good energy and have greater luck for the rest of the year. Resuming business on the wrong date can result in a financial disaster, lawsuits, chaos in the workplace, corporate slowdown, and year-long problems.
The dates listed below are ideal for commencing work or restarting a business:
1. Conflict Dragon, on 2 February 2022
2. Conflict Horse, on 4 February 2022
3. Conflict occurs on February 7 2022, for Rooster

Recommendations for picking a good day include:

2. Days, when one’s zodiac is in conflict (especially when one is a certain age), are bad for that zodiac but good for the others.
3. It is advisable to avoid the 3rd, 6th, and 7th lunar months for major events such as weddings, property/car purchases, relocations, and grand openings.
4. If one chooses each day carefully to do the right things, every day will be a good day
