Chinese Astrology – Personal Date Selection Part 2

In Chinese Astrology, selecting an auspicious date in which to commence an important activity is the first step
towards making sure that a venture or endeavor get off the ground in the most positive and favorable way
possible. Ideally, a good date should also be complimented with a good hour when commencing an important
activity in order to enhance the positive effect of the day. It is about doing the right thing at the right time
when the energy of the day is in synchronicity with the energy of the hour.

This article is only concern with selecting a good day based on a method known as the 12 Day Officers System.
The methodology of this system is that each day of the month is controlled by a governing officer and there
are a total of 12 officers. These officers refer to the twelve specific types of energy that govern a particular
day. The month always start with the first officer day which is known as the Establish Day. The first officer day
always share the same earthly branch of the reference month. For example, Establish Day for the month of
February starts on the first day of the month. The Chinese Solar Calendar has 12 months and therefore 12
earthly branches or animal signs. The month of February has the Tiger as the earthly branch. Since Establish
Day share the same earthly branch with the reference month, all Tiger days in the month of February are
Establish Days. The rest of the 11 officers will then follow in sequence and thereafter, the cycle repeat itself.
