Why do we want to select a good date to do something important? Why is it in a Feng Shui solution works better with a good date compared to average or bad date? Does it make a difference?
The answer is obviously yes, if not I wouldn’t even bother to post this article. Again, the only way to know if it is true is when you have repeatedly experienced good results.
There are many methods of Date Selection and intended for various applications. The most common method is the Tong Shu or the Chinese lunar calendar. It uses the zodiac sign of the person and matching it with the date. This is very common in most traditional chinese home where the chinese calendar is a must.
Then there is the 12 Day Officer method and the Dong Gong method which primarily uses the 28 constellation method as it’s founding basis. These methods are more advance and also uses the person’s zodiac animal sign.
They are mostly meant for personal events like starting an important activity such as marriage, starting up a business, signing contracts, successful operation and many more….
Finally, there is the Xuan Kong Da Gua method which is for Feng Shui application. This method, you will need to know the basics of Bazi. XKDG uses the Solar Calendar and the person’s Bazi or 4 Pillars to match the Person to the Date and House.
XKDG Date Selection can be used for applications such as erecting the door, setting the stove, moving into the house, starting renovation, erecting the headstone for grave and etc..
Chinese metaphysics is very much entrenched in the Trinity Concept of Heaven, Earth and Man. They believe that 3 types of Qi exists and so the highest level of feng shui is to gather maximum effect is when all the 3 Qi are present and integrated. This is one layer of Feng Shui Application.
When Date Selection is employed the results are usually more visible, durable and faster. Next I will touch about San Sha ie the 3 Killings.
