Red Paper Lanterns Rising into Night Sky

One of the easiest ways to integrate positive universal energies into your life is to select an auspicious date for conducting important events. Auspicious dates are times when the planets are aligned in your favor for good fortune and prosperity. They are calculated using your personal Life Map and the Chinese Almanac.

When you do this, you are making sure the planets are aligned in your favor. Auspicious dates should be calculated for the following events:

  • Birthing
  • Blessing Ceremony
  • Wedding
  • Burial
  • Grand opening
  • Contract signing
  • Travel
  • Ground breaking
  • Moving into a new home


Whether by airplane, boat, car or train, there are certain risks that come with travel from sickness and injury to death. Your exposure to danger increases with farther distances, faster modes of transport and greater unfamiliarity of locales and languages.

For some people, their Life Map stars indicate negative energies in their Travel Sector. This can represent accidents or getting lost and delayed. It can also represent theft or sad news from home while you are abroad.

During your own zodiac year, which is known as "tai shui", you should minimize travel, especially to extreme, dangerous or dark places such as famous burial grounds, past war zones, concentration camps, jungles, deserts, third-world or politically unstable areas. Tai shui is a year of transition that occurs every three years starting with your zodiac year. During Tai Shui years, you are more likely to face crises, challenges, and potential dangers in your life.

Besides Tai shui, the annual Ghost Festival (7th lunar month) is a metaphysically unstable time when travel should also be avoided.

Before you embark on an exotic vacation with the whole family or a solo business trip, it is wise to select an auspicious date. Our method of selecting auspicious dates for travel is calculated according to the personal promoting elements of the travelers. The dates with the most favorable planetary alignments are best for both departure and return dates.

If you are unable to travel on an auspicious date, then it is advisable to protect yourself with Mantra Charms.


For wedding ceremonies, we calculate auspicious dates that match both the bride and groom. Both their Life Maps are consulted to narrow down the best year and month for each person. From there, the best date(s) are calculated.

Sometimes, an auspicious date falls on a weekday, which is not necessarily suitable for a wedding ceremony. In these situations, you can arrange to sign the marriage license on the auspicious date and schedule the actual ceremony on another day.

It is a good idea to get your auspicious dates 6 - 12 months in advance of your wedding to ensure that the people and arrangements necessary for your ceremony are available on the auspicious wedding date.


An auspicious birthing date means that a child is delivered on a day, month, year, and hour that result in a beneficial Life Map. This is possible only when one desires or anticipates a C-section delivery. To determine an auspicious birth date, the Life Maps of the parents are calculated, revealing the child energy that is compatible to them, and dates that support this energy. An auspicious birth date will support the child in his/her life and make them a “lucky” child to his/her parents. The auspicious time and date range for birthing can be coordinated with the anticipated due date and the doctor's schedule.
