Auspicious Wedding Dates in September 2012

After achieving 30 consecutive post over 30 days, and partly inspired by the 7×7 Promotion, I’m setting the next post target to the 49th post mark! That would mean a total of 49 post over 49 days! Let’s see if I can hit the mark!

Back to the topic, these are the good and auspicious wedding dates (結婚吉日) for the month of September 2012.

Bundles of Love!

You can use these auspicious dates 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 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“.

  1. hey there and thank you for your information – I’ve definitely picked up anything new from right here. I did however expertise several technical issues using this web site, as I experienced to reload the web site a lot of times previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords. Well I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look out for a lot more of your respective intriguing content. Ensure that you update this again soon..

  2. jleefoofighter says:

    Hey, I’ve looked at other sites. Is September 22nd not an auspicious wedding date? Also, do the exceptions apply only to the bride and groom or also the parents?

  3. 7des7iny says:

    Hey there, 2012 September 22nd is a day that is in conflict with the year itself. Thus, it is considered unstable and usually avoided. There are sometimes loopholes though depending on who is using it and what it is being used for. Meaning, if you have no choice but to use this date, there might be certain hours that are still able to support wedding activities like oath taking.

    Exceptions part applies mainly to bride and groom first. The consideration of parents’ horoscopes is more of a good-to-have and it’s OK not to include it.

    • Misty says:

      Hey, my partner and I were thinking of having our wedding on September 22nd as well.
      Because both our parents were telling us that it is not an auspicious date, and we don’t want to change it, we were wondering if it’s ok to sign papers on a good date, and have the ceremony on September 22nd (so it’s just a celebration and not our official wedding date). Both myself and the groom are born in the year of the Dog.

      • 7des7iny says:

        Hi Misty, yes, you are on the right track.

        Since you already have plans for the ceremony on 22nd Sep which is not a good date:
        1. Conduct the oath taking earlier than 22nd Sep,
        2. Talk to your parents to assure them that you understand 22nd isn’t a good date but no choice as it’s the only conducive time to have the ceremony etc, and that’s why you will have an earlier oath taking. So the ceremony on 22nd Sep is just like a follow-up celebration,
        3. The following next year celebrate your one year one day earlier (aka 21st Sep 2013) only IF you are taking 22nd Sep as the official date to commemorate. Else ignore this part.

        Hope that helps.

      • Misty says:

        Thanks for the information. I also want to ask is there a reason why almost all online sites I’ve looked at says Sept 22nd is an auspicious date, but the official chinese calendar is reflecting otherwise?

        Are Sept 16th or Sept 18th 2012 good dates?

      • 7des7iny says:

        Hi Misty, well, good question. Here’s my wild guess. The calendars copy each other, so the mistake gets duplicated. Or, the websites copy from the same source…so, the mistake gets circulated around.

        Anyway, most of these online sites are just wedding sites selling wedding dresses, photography, compilation of wedding info thrown together from somewhere else, etc. They are not practitioners of date selection and most of them rely heavily on what one or two popular calendar says.

        Personally, I scrutinize all the dates in the month before posting them. Then again, being human, I bet I will make a typo eventually. Maybe one of them made a typo too. So, I can only say “use with caution”. Of course, I would be happy to help verify some of the dates again if any users out there just wants to be sure.

        Sep 16th is just ok (meaning…mediocre). It’s pro is that it falls on a weekend.
        Sep 18th is a good date as indicated above 🙂

  4. EJ says:

    Hi! I’m having problems with our preferred wedding date. We picked Sept. 8, 2012 at 4 pm as our wedding date, but then I was born Feb. 12, 1986 (Tiger) and my fiance was born Oct. 27, 1977 (Snake) is there any way we can still go with this date? 😦

  5. 7des7iny says:

    Hi EJ, for your case there is no issue using the date even though the day is incompatible with your horoscope. However, you will want to avoid important vows or ceremonies during the snake and horse hour. Depending on what country you live in, it could range somewhere between 9am to 2+pm. If the type of ceremonies cannot be avoided, just maintain a relaxed attitude for the activities conducted during those timing.

    The Goat and Dog hour are helpful towards your case. So, if applicable, try to position the main vow exchange within one of these helpful hours to help override the effects of the day incompatibility.

  6. emmu says:

    Hi, I was planning on having a wedding on September 28, 2012 (friday PST), but was told that this is a bad day for us. Is that true? what hours should i avoid if i do pick that date?

    Me: october 17, 1984
    him: march 29, 1978

    My other option was september 21, 2012 instead…

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi emmu,

      Bride: Born in Rat Year
      Groom: Born in Horse Year

      28 Sep is a good day as stated above. It is usually deemed as not suitable for marriage because “the Tong Shu says so”. Why? It is because this is a “Danger (危) Day”. This terminology sounds deadly. But, it merely hints on its *general* usage and the sequential order from the commanding day in the month.

      Fortunately, there is much more to date selection. When you use more advanced methods to screen the day, 28th Sep 2012 is actually good day. If you think of it as a mango, the outside looks dusty, but the inside is actually fresh and succulent!

      28th Sep not compatible with Dog pple. So, you can use it. For your case, there are no no extra hours to avoid other than stated Monkey hour. You might find the events in the evening (like after 6+pm) more to your expectations though.

      21 Sep 2012 on the surface looks palatable. But, it is not. It is far worse than 28th Sep 2012. By right, it is an auspicious day. However, there are other factors tainting it in the end… so I wouldn’t recommend it for an event as solemn and sacred as marriage. I will tell u the loophole for that day only if you really have no choice but to use it.

      So, stick to 28th Sep 2012.

      • emmu says:

        Wow…Thanks for the quick response. A friend of a family member also suggest that I pick September 17, 2012 (Monday). I was wondering if you had any thoughts on those two dates or if one should have preference over the other. September 17, 2012 vs. September 28, 2012. Thank you again for all of your help!

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi emmu,

      17th Sep 2012 seems like an auspicious day on the surface. Not compatible with pple born in Pig year. But the energy structure is only mundane. I would call it a culturally-preferred day…as in, this is a day where people who have their faith vested in the certain calendars will feel more comfortable using.

      17th Sep 2012 is also better than 21 Sep 2012. So, I rank:
      A) 28th sep 2012 (friday)
      B) 17th sep 2012 (monday), avoid Rooster hour.
      Far below) 21 sep 2012

      You can go ahead with 17th sep 2012 if you:
      1) feel that so far your relation with your other half has been relatively stable so far, and/or,
      2) would like to give the senior generation a peace of mind because “Success” days (成日) are generally perceived as good and it would facilitate their positive input before and after the ceremonies. You know some of us like harping about an issue for a while right? Those verbal effects will some impact..
      3) don’t mind it being a monday compared to friday.

      Anyway, if I were in your shoes, I would definitely stick to 28th sep 2012.

  7. emmu says:

    Thank you so much! You have no idea how much we appreciate your input! All of the information that you have on your blog is just so helpful!

  8. Ann says:

    My fiancee and I are both born in the year of the tiger which means double trouble to some people. Can you let me know which of these 2012 dates would be best for us? May 26, July 21, or Sept 1, 8, 15, 22? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi Ann,

      There is also the loose saying that if you are born in a Tiger, you are not compatible with a person born in a Monkey or Snake year. But since those are all market fluffs, we don’t really need to care about it.

      Both of you are Tiger,
      2012 May 26: out
      2012 July 21: Can use…avoid important vows during Goat hour.
      2012 Sep 1: Can use…avoid important vows during Snake hour.
      2012 Sep 8: Good day but not compatible with both of you…so skip this.
      2012 Sep 15: out
      2012 Sep 22: out

      Hope that helps.

      • Ann says:

        Many thanks for your advice! Your blog entries are very informative for those of us who are unfamiliar with the Chinese zodiac dates/meanings.

  9. 7des7iny says:

    You are welcome, Ann.

  10. Misty says:

    Thanks so much for being so informative.

  11. Meilany says:

    Hi, I was planning to have a wedding on September 23, 2012, but my uncle told my mom that it is not a good day for a wedding when we already booked all vendors (venue, cake, photographer, videographer, etc.). He already looked at the Chinese book Tong Shu if I’m not mistaken. Our first date that we found before September 23 was September 16, 2012 but the venue that we wanted is already booked by another couple and that’s why we have September 23. After my uncle said that, my mom thinks to split the wedding into 2 days (September 16 is for the ceremony and signing the wedding license and September 23 is for the reception). I’m really confused and I want to have a wedding on 1 day if it’s possible. Any information would be helpful and appreciated.

    My fiance was born on March 28, 1986 (Tiger). His birth time was around 2 or 3 pm
    I was born on May 1, 1987 (Rabbit). My birth time was around 3 or 4 am

    Thanks a lot!

  12. 7des7iny says:

    Hi Meilany,

    Fiance: Fire Tiger, yin Metal person
    Yourself: Fire Rabbit, yang Metal person

    23rd Sep is a day not compatible with snakes people. So, it is absolutely a good choice for you and your fiance.
    16th Sep is considered an above average day actually. Not compatible with Dog pple. Not a suitable day to support marriage activities too. Generally, just not good enough to be called Auspicious from my standards.

    It still sounds good if u are having the oath or license done on 23rd. Then, the activites on 15th Sep becomes more of a showplay to pacify the concerns of the elders.

    Otherwise, if you really prefer to stick to just one date, you can consider one or all the below interactions with your uncle and let your mother be aware of your research:
    1. Request your uncle to review the 16th Sep again.
    2. Tell him it looks good because it is only a six combination (六和日) day with the month. Tell him its a Danger Day (危日). Ask him innocently why must use a danger day for wedding? (not that it cannot be used…just that not that that specific day is not gd enough for such activities anyway)
    3. IF uncle says day actually not suitable for fiance, tell him you know but the energy structure of the day is very good and overrides that little penalty.

    See if that helps.

    • M says:

      Thank you for the reply! I’ll talk to my mom about it. I saw on your original post above that 23 Sep…Sunday…Not for Snake people…Avoid Tiger hour. Does it mean that September 23, 2012 is not good for Tiger people? Thank you!

      • 7des7iny says:

        Hi Meilany, that day is mainly not compatible with people born in the year of the Snake.

        “Avoid Tiger hour” means avoid oath taking or important ceremonies in the hour that may fall between 3am to 6am depending on where you live because even though the day is good, there are certain hour range that can break the good structure of the day. The reverse reasoning is applicable… meaning, lousy day might be made slightly more acceptable by choosing a good hour depending on availability.

        Anyway, 3am to 6am doesn’t affect most normal wedding procedures so it makes the day highly flexible.

  13. adaell says:


    We are planning on having our wedding in the Fall 2012. Would you be able to advise us on which date will work better for us:

    Bride: Oct 28, 1980
    Groom: Feb 9, 1980

    We are looking at the following dates:

    Sat Sept 8th
    Sun Sept 9th
    Sat Sept 22
    Sun Sept 23
    Sat Sept 29th
    Sun Sept 30th
    Sat Oct 13th
    Sun Oct 14th
    Sat Nov 17th

    Thank you for your help!

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi adaell,

      Bride: Metal Monkey, yang Wood person.
      Groom: Metal Monkey, yang Water person.

      Good to see you have shortlisted a number of dates.

      9 Sep is out, looks good but unstable type of date.
      22 Sep out, 29 Sep out, 30 Sep out, 13 Oct out.

      So you have these four dates that you can consider depending on what seasonal or festive theme you want to align it with:
      Sat Sept 8 (I would vote for this)
      Sun Sept 23
      Sun Oct 14
      Sat Nov 17 (and also this)

  14. Rhea says:

    Hi, my fiancee and I are planning to get married on September 9, 2012 since churches and hotels are already fully booked for September 8, 2012 so we opted for September 9 instead. But I’m afraid that September 9, 2012 is not included in the list of auspicious wedding dates. Should we proceed with September 9? By the way, we are both born on the year of the pig.

    Bride’s birth date: April 23, 1983
    Groom’s birth date: May 13, 1983

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi Rhea,

      Bride: Water Pig, yin Metal person.
      Groom: Water Pig, yin Metal person.

      Wow, nice union. Not only are your Horoscopes the same, your Day Masters are the same too. Can count on the Bride for much of the planning.

      8 Sep 2012 would have been perfect if the arrangements were feasible… But no point blaming anyone or anything. Surpass the trials together and become better than the you of yesterday.

      Well, I highly recommend another date over 9 Sep.
      See if these dates are feasible for your considerations:
      2 Oct 2012
      14 Oct 2012
      1 Dec 2012

      • Rhea says:

        Thank you for the information but due to some constraints September 8 is not anymore available so we will go for September 9 instead and our vacation (overseas) is already scheduled for the month of September. The start of the wedding ceremony is at 2:00PM is it okay?

        Thank you so much 🙂

      • 7des7iny says:

        Hi Rhea,

        I have to admit your case is more challenging then.
        If it rains in the morning or late evening at where you live or where the wedding was conducted then it is quite an auspicious sign for you.
        Other than that, I would like to emphasize to both of you to have in your hearts the patron of your respective religion (e.g., mentally give a sincere thanks to God for your union) when you are taking the oath together. If it’s appropriate, a verbal thanks and praise is strongly recommended too.

  15. says:


    We are planning on having our wedding in Fall 2012. Would you be able to advise which date will work for us:

    Bride: Aug 17, 1982
    Groom: Sept 23, 1974

    We are looking at 23 September 2012.

    Appreciate your help!

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi kernis,

      Bride: Water Dog, yang Water person.
      Groom: Wood Tiger, yin Fire person.

      23 Sep 2012 is a good day as mentioned here.
      You can use it since non of you are born in the year of Snake.
      Just watch for the hour range to avoid conducting important ceremonies!

  16. Anne says:

    Hi! My fiancee and I are considering the following dates for our wedding:

    Bride’s birth date: 10/02/1984
    Groom’s birth date: 03/07/1977

    We were initially thinking 08/25 as we read that was an auspicious date but then I saw this is not a good date for a Rat (me). What would be the best date/s from the above? I’m inclined to pick 09/08/12; which you said to avoid monkey hour. Sorry I’m not very familiar with this, when would monkey hour be for us (US Pacific time)? Thanks!

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi Anne,

      Bride: Wood Rat, yang Wood person.
      Groom: Fire Snake, yin Metal person.

      Are dates you should totally avoid.

      Can consider if you cannot use the two good dates below.

      The best are the remaining:
      08/25/12, avoiding Tiger hour translates to your time 4am to 6am. Since normally people don’t use this hour range, this means the whole day is pretty flexible for use.
      09/08/12, avoiding Monkey hour translates to your time 4pm to 6pm.

      Hope that helps.

      • Anne says:

        Thanks for the quick response! We’ll likely use 9/8/12 then. Would any of these dates be better than 9/8/12: 9/15, 10/6, 10/13, 10/20, 11/3, 11/10, 11/17, 12/1, 12/8? Thank you!

      • 7des7iny says:

        Hi Anne,

        all rejected.

        The rest are good consideration if they do not stated as incompatible with your horoscopes of Rat and Snake.

  17. Pang CF says:

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi Pang CF,

      Bride: Metal Monkey, yang Fire person.
      Groom: Water Dog, yang Metal person.

      Among the dates provided, I would tend to strongly recommend Nov 18, or Dec 30 2012.

      Hope that helps.

      • Pang CF says:


        Thanks a lot for your reply. Can I know wat is the disadvantage on the first two date as we are highly recommend to carried out our wedding on this two days.

        Pang CF

      • 7des7iny says:

        Hi Pang CF,

        Those two days are probably geared towards your birth charts from the Feng Shui master’s perspective.
        However, my approach is to identify the really good dates first then match with the birth charts or other requirements.

        Perhaps in short, you can just treat it as a difference of preference between practitioners.

  18. kernis says:


    Thanks for the prompt reply! We have decided to go with 24th Jan 2013 for the solemnization,
    and 27th Jan 2013 for the actual wedding. I have taken note of the hours to avoid. Is there anything else we should be paying attention to?

    Bride: Water Dog, yang Water person.
    Groom: Wood Tiger, yin Fire person.

    Thanks a lot!

    • 7des7iny says:

      Hi Kernis,

      Well, as far as auspicious weddings are concerned, if the day, hour part are noted, the rest are up to your good arrangements. With the background work done (auspicious date planning), you can continue working on the presentation aspect of the wedding. Perhaps, add in the good cultural symbology to further enhance the atmosphere of the wedding.

  19. kernis says:

    OK! Noted. Thank you so much. You have been real helpful. Cheers
