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.
