However, you must know that this book does not provide specific advice or recommendations. Instead, it offers general guidelines on preparing yourself mentally and physically to make the most out of your year.
How Does This Feng Shui Almanac Work?
This Feng Shui almanac is calculated based on the principles of heavenly branches and earthly stems. It will show if the specified day has auspicious, average and inauspicious energy so that you can plan for the optimal yield of any events/activities.
Besides checking if the date is suitable for a specific task, you should also consider if that day is favourable or whether it clashes with your Chinese animal zodiac sign.
