What Is Feng Shui Almanac and When To Use It?

The Chinese Feng Shui Almanac, also known as “Tong Sheng(通胜)” in Chinese, originated from the yellow calendar (黄厉). Since ancient times, it has been a vital tool to the Chinese, and many believed that this book knows everything.

Even in this modern society, many people, especially Feng Shui practitioners, depend on this traditional tool as a helpful guide to select auspicious dates for their clients. Some hardcore fans might even consult this traditional almanac daily, similar to reading daily horoscopes.

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 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.
