Does depositing money in your bank account on Li Chun 立春 arrival of new spring day really bring good fortune for the whole year? The Chinese calendar system is base 5 elements energy of time from year, month, day and hour. Li Chun or arrival of spring is a new beginning in Chinese solar calendar.
There are many rituals performed to receive the new spring or new year and the most famous would be to deposit money into your bank account or open new bank account.
In the previous year I have seen long queues at the ATM on the so call auspicious hour.
I have receive a poster stating about date and time to deposit money during li chun
There are 2 aspects which I would look at to check if depositing money in to bank consider as auspicious during Li Chun
- Li Chun day energy
Li Chun like any other days, has its own 5 elements energy pattern in the year, month, day and hour pillar. This year li Chun 4 Feb is an open day and consider as auspicious. There are only one wealth star present which is earthly storage. Not a strong wealth day.
Out of all the hour given, there are only 2 really auspicious hour of the day, 3-4:59 pm and 5 to 6:59 pm.
5 Feb does not even have any present so not suitable for wealth related activities unless your personal wealth star is present.
- Wealth related activities
I will not consider depositing money into a bank will bring good fortune. It is just recycle of the same money. Money you deposit into your bank account could be from one pocket to another pocket and the growth will be quite limited.
Money related activities would be converting your effort in wealth. This include investment which grow over time, marketing, closing a sale.
It is not through one action depositing money to bank account on a certain day.
