    Love the site and info! So useful and simple to use.

    I’ve been searching the net trying to find an auspicious day to pay respect for the blessing during the past year. Now i know next saturday is a good day 🙂

    by the way, do you have any info on how to pray/thank for the blessing? ie. which fruit to bring etc…

    • avatar Myadmin

      Hi Fiona,

      Usually it depends on what deity you pray to. Certain Deities required meat offerings while certains’s are vegetarian and some deity prohibit certain offerings. Usually 5 apples, 5 pears, a pineapple, bunch of bananas are good for offerings.

    In your dates of hanging the red cloth for chinese new year 2011, you only mention the crash dates. May i know what is the auspicious date for dragon?

    • avatar Myadmin


      Crash/Oppose means a person with the sign listed should avoid choosing that date. As for a dragon person, you should AVOID 31 Jan 2011 Mon / 十二月廿八. Any other date LISTED is good.

      Hi Kim,
      If you really got to start/resume work on 7 Feb, the ideal time would be between 0900am-1045am. Again, Feb 7 is not an auspicious day.

  • avatar elizabeth,ck


    • avatar Myadmin

      Since you’ve got the option of timing, anywhere between 0700am – 1045am / 辰-已時 will be just fine.

      An auspicious timing for that day is between 1300pm – 1445pm / 未時.The star Tian Yi GUI Ren / 天乙貴人 / Nobleman Star be shining at this time.

      BUT if you are born 1948 / 戊子, 1972 / 壬子, or 2008 / 壬子 this timing is INAUSPICIOUS and NOT suitable.

    hi, i am not so sure about the tai sui for horse and rat auspicious date to pray. as my self is rabbit. so the auspicious date for rabbit is 11th feb 2011 on friday. can i also help my family to pray for behalf of them. i have 2 daughters. one is goat and pig. I wonder the goat and pig is also need to pray for the white tiger?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    • avatar Myadmin

      Hi Mary,

      These are the answers to your question.

      1) There is no specific date to pray to tai Sui. It really depends on which temple you visits that provide this Tai Sui prayers. And Yes, the rabbit sign should pray to Tai Sui.

      2) Feb 11th 2011 is Inauspicious / Bad day for a rabbit person.

      3) Usually, the person who offends the white tiger should be presence at the ceremony (it would be much better). There are also certain temples around that provide these prayers on behalf of devotees. Yes, I think you should be able to pray on behalf your family member.

      4) Yes, those born under the astrological sign of PIG and LAMB should pray to the white tiger.

      Gong Xi Fa Chai – 恭喜發財.

    Hi, if I’m a dragon and need to start work on 12/2/11 (1pm), is there someway I can reduce the effects of clash? I’m in the entertainment/modelling industry and am doing the events as part-time on top of studying, so does it still matter? Thank you! Appreciate your help!:)

    • avatar Myadmin

      As you know, 12 Feb 2011 is not an auspicious day for a person born in a dragon year. But fortunately 1300pm that specific day is auspicious. There isn’t much you could do beside selecting an auspicious time to start. If you could start at 1200pm the more better. There is much formulation to do if you want an auspicious day that is based on your business/career and your personal 8 character.

      All the best.

  • avatar B

    Thank you for your advice! Will report for work at 12pm (noon) as you mentioned.

    Thanks again for your help! Your reply is very helpful. Have a good year ahead too!

  • avatar B

    Oh yeah I’m 1988 dragon. Hope the timing is alright (12noon) on 12/2/11.
