General vs Personalised, Which Date is Better?

In the previous posting, you’ve talk about the 12 Day Officers and the Year and Month Breaker. So far, these things apply to everyone in general.

That means a Success day is not only good for you, but it’s also good for everyone including your competitors. A Year and Month Breaker is not only bad for you, but it’s also bad for everyone else. There are times when you need that competitive edge, for that you’ll have to use the personalized aspect of Date Selection.


The art of Date Selection is deeply entwined with other disciplines of Chinese Metaphysics including BaZi. Also known as the Four Pillars of Destiny, BaZi is a form of Chinese Astrology that studies a person’s energy and maps out their life journey. Knowing what’s inside your BaZi chart allows you to use a personalized version of Date Selection that can benefit you specifically.

To get your BaZi chart, just click here to plot your chart.

Once you’ve generated your BaZi chart, pay attention to the table on the top left corner:

This table highlighted above in Blue contains different animal signs and it is unique to every individual. For this example, take note of what animal signs are there that is your Noble People, Intelligence and Peach Blossom. Besides the 12 Day Officers, each day also has its own element and animal sign. Knowing what day it is in terms of these animals can be used to your advantage.


For example, if what’s written there is Goat and Ox, that means help is more readily available on Goat and Ox days. This effect is amplified if it were to fall on a Receive day as well.


Is there something that you wish to learn? Studying or engaging in creative pursuit on a day that has your Intelligence animal sign can help. For example, if what’s written there is Monkey, that means you are more receptive to learning on Monkey days.


Do you have a romantic date coming up or anyone you want to impress? That’s what the Peach Blossom star is for. For example, if your Peach Blossom is the Rabbit animal sign, arrange to meet the person on a Rabbit day for that extra likability.

I’m sure you can’t wait to put all of these into practice and I hear you. For the next and posting, I have something special. How does a free calendar that has all the 12 Day Officers, Breaker Days and animal signs sound to you?

I am SH, a Chinese Metaphysics enthusiast, practitioner, consultant, life transformation coach and also the Founder of SH Astrology Consulting. Chinese Metaphysics such as Bazi and QiMen as always fascinated me. I am always amazed by how Bazi and QiMen could forecast the outcomes and relate encounters that a person can experience with great accuracy when it is being applied correctly. When it come to Feng Shui, the studying of the flow of Qi (Chi) energy can influences the environment around us.These energies can directly or indirectly affect how we operate and affect what we want to achieve. With proper practice, we can create opportunities that help us achieve our goals. SH Astrology was created to share my knowledge in BaZi and also some other Chinese Metaphysics systems like QiMen, Feng Shui, Yi Jing. I would also like to debunk some myths, and irrelevant concepts or beliefs in Chinese Metaphysic which cause confusion and fear in people’s life.
