Which Chinese calendar?

The Hsia Li (solar calendar) or the Yhue Li (lunar calendar)

Written by Sallie Tsui Sien

The Chinese Lunar calendar formulates the days of the month according to the cycle of the moon. This calendar is very much used by the farmers who grow their crops according to the cycle of the moon. The calendar consists of a table advising when the best time is or when not to plough, plant, sow, harvest and prune.

The first New Moon Day of the year is the day of the Chinese Lunar New Year. Next year will be the year 4701 of the Chinese calendar - a Yang Wood Monkey year and Chinese New Year starts on 21st January 2004.

In 2004, spring does not start till 4th February, which marks the beginning of the Hsia Li (solar calendar). Many Feng Shui formulae are based on this calendar. For instance, the calculations of your personal Gua number and the determination of the Lo Shu number for the annual flying stars.

The day that marks the beginning of spring is called the Spring Festival (Li Chun in Chinese).

The Chinese believe that, in any year, if Chinese New year falls before the start of spring, good fortune is forecast for that year. If Chinese New Year falls after spring, the forecast for that year is less desirable. Lastly, should spring coincide with Chinese New Year, this indicates that the year will be truly auspicious.

So 2004 will be an auspicious year.

In 2004, the yearly unfavourable direction is the South where the Three Killings will reside for the year. So, if you plan to dig, renovate or prune trees or work with a chainsaw in this direction, please do this before February 2004.
