一年之始在於春Spring Beckons the Start of the New Year
A lot of people think that 19th February 2015 (First day of the Lunar New Year) is the first day of the Chinese New Year (Wooden Goat Year). This could not be more wrong.
The beginning of a new year is marked by the dawn of “Li Chun” (Beginning of Spring), the first of the 24 solar terms used in the traditional Chinese Farmer Calendar. The first day of “Li Chun” is thus the first day of the Year of the Wooden Goat. To be exact, it is 4th February 2015, 11:59 am! It is definitely not the first day of the Lunar New Year on 19th February 2015.
Please be very clear on this, and not be led ‘astray’ by others. Some of my clients are not familiar with “Li Chun”, and only when they had their birth chart analysis or selection of wedding date done by me, did they realize they got their own Chinese zodiac sign wrong all along.
As we usher in the Year of Goat, there are a few things we could do diligently. One of which is you can make a deposit into your bank account. Not only does this ensure you have enough wealth for the upcoming year, it also guarantees a surplus. But do note that this requires a highly-skilled Master to pick an auspicious date and time and the ideal amount to be deposited, for this wealth activation formula to be effective.
However, Master Dai Hu feels that it is best to perform a meritorious deed before doing the bank deposit. When a good seed (cause) is planted, naturally you will yield a virtuous outcome (effect). This is the unchanging law of the Universe. This is also pure logic. Master Dai Hu is a scientific person, and never like to believe in superstitions and hearsay. If you do not have seeds of goodness planted, how would you bear fruits of virtues? Thus, please perform a good deed before making the bank deposit. This is how you best bring out the most optimal results!
