Good & bad days – September 2016 (Ding You)

How was yesterday for you? Good, bad or simply terrible? I bet you didn’t know that the qi (energy) of a particular day is responsible for how your day will turn out. Has it happened to you that everything you planned to do on a particular day has not worked out? The reason could be, you planned your event on an inauspicious day, which simply made things go from good to bad. Not only will this blog post empower you to plan your events by using the auspicious days and avoiding the inauspicious days, you will also be informed about suitable activities for auspicious days.

ZeRi  (date selection) is an ancient Chinese metaphysical science that falls under Chinese astrology. Days are regarded as auspicious or inauspicious according to the qi (energy) they contain. You can achieve success in your endeavors by selecting days whose qi (energy) supports your activity. You can avoid meeting with failure by simply avoiding the dates with inauspicious qi (energy). I have provided two lists for you – the first contains the auspicious days and suitable activities for the day and the second, the inauspicious days and activities you need to avoid on that day.

How to use the dates?

Check the list below and make an entry in your online calendar or diary – you could simply mark auspicious dates with an “A” and inauspicious days with an “X”. Now, you can schedule your activities accordingly. Whenever you have some important work simply use the day with an “A” and avoid the days with “X”.

How to use the auspicious dates in September to your advantage?

Each date has its own qi (energy) which is suitable for certain activities. In the list below, the left column contains the auspicious dates for the month of September 2016; the right column contains the list of activities that is suitable for the day. You could select the date according to your planned event for e.g. you want to open your new business then you can use any day with “business opening” as one of its activities. It is always better to use an auspicious day even if your activity is not listed.

Avoid these dates in September

Below is the list of dates you need to avoid in September for any kind of important work. These are dates when the qi(energy) of the day opposes the qi(energy) of the month or the year. Hence, these particular days are unpredictable and not smooth. Activities planned on these days are bound to undergo last minute changes.
