Today is the 6th day of Chinese New Year and the first day of work for me. I also realised after talking to quite a few people, that today is also the first day they are opening their offices for business.
The reason, as many told me was because “The 6th day is a good day for starting business”.
And I believe it! :D Do you?
Yep! I do believe in good or not so good days for significant events, like the commencement of business but not to the extent of going out of my way to do anything silly or to plan my life around these dates.
The Chinese Almanac is usually calculated according to one’s Chinese year of birth which determines your Chinese zodiac. It is supposed to be even more accurate if time of birth was taken into consideration, but I usually stop at the year.
I also believe in Feng Shui, but only in the general sense. I don’t delve in it and I don’t allow my life to be dictated by it. Which is why I don’t go for the style of feng shui that dictates you place this or that items in this or that sector of the home or the office. I find that to enrich only one person – the one selling it to you :P
So yes. In this modern day and age, when most would scoff at such backward thinking methods, I will confess to believing and sometimes putting into practice feng shui elements and following the good and not so good days for major events, as foretold by the Chinese Almanac.
I figure, if it doesn’t hurt me, why not? ;)
Your say: Do you believe in feng shui or the Chinese Almanac?
If you don’t, feel free to say so – but remember to be polite about it ;)
