I guess I should have done this years ago. But it didn’t occur to me until recently, when I realized how much (efforts) my friends and associates are spending in their wedding. Well, we all just want a happy memory of the celebration.
Since I’m in this line, I will just make it convenient for everyone trying to find the good dates for their vows or solemnization. That way, you can save yourself the research headaches and put more of your energy and resources into the wedding preparations.
Over the next few days, I shall release the good and auspicious weddings dates for the next few months to make give a better overview to those planning early. But just in case you see nothing in the future, the good dates for the following month should be posted LATEST by the first week of the month before it.
You can use these auspicious dates (結婚吉日) for the following activities:
1. ROM date
2. Solemnization / Vows
3. Delivery of Betrothal Gifts (过大礼)
4. Delivery of Dowry (嫁妝)
5. Setting up the bed for the couple (安床)
6. Tea Ceremony
7. Wedding dinner / party
8. Wedding events (informal)
9. Wedding ceremony
The following dates are all very auspicious and lucky days for the month. You can use it regardless of your race or religion. By filtering out the inauspicious hour to avoid conducting important activities indicated above, you now have a lot of flexibilities in planning the details of your wedding event.
As the following dates are not derived solely using the 12 Officers date selection system usually used in the Tong Shu, some of the days labelled as “No Good” in the Tong Shu are actually much more usable than it seems.
If you insist on the technical info, I derived the following dates by subjecting them to the standards of very stringent and well-known advanced date appraisal techniques:
1. Dong Gong (董公)
2. Qi Men Dun Jia (奇門遁甲)
3. Xuan Kong Da Gua (玄空大卦)
The technique “28 Constellations (二十八宿)” is not used because these stars are constantly moving and the old texts with the old algorithm sequence is no longer accurate.
If you need further refinement (YES, it is still possible to further rank these good dates so please spare me the story that you paid a master 188 and all they did was flip some standard Tong Shu…), you can contact your Master for further assistance. But, if you would like me to tailor-rank the best dates within a month specifically for you and your partner’s wedding, I will further refine the dates for you using the below techniques:
4. 12 Officers Advance (十二值神密)
5. Xuan Kong Purple White Nine Stars (玄空紫白九星)
6. Xuan Kong Da Gua Advance (玄空大卦密)
7. Ba Zi / Liu Zi Date Selection (八字 / 六字)
8. I Ching / Yi Jing (易經)
9. Dates that are helpful to fertility (only if you need to prioritize this)
10. Dates that are helpful to money opportunities (only if you need to prioritize this)
11. Dates that are helpful to recognition and support (only if you need to prioritize this)
12. Dates that are helpful to harmony (by default, I will rank based on this)
As much as I would like to provide number 4-12 for free, they actually require very specific detail like your birthday info. Having the birth time will be helpful but not necessary. It also takes me a fair bit of time and effort to do this next level of refinement. Thus, I apologize for not being able to provide this next level for free. Just email me at love@7-Destiny.com for an exact quote. Yes, I will also help you adjust the Animal Hour to your local timing.
If you need help in deciphering the Animal Hours, just read the post “Animal Hour in Chinese Metaphysics I – Background“.
