Ze Ri, the Ancient Chinese Art of Date Selection: Doing the right thing in the right place at the right time

Your advice as to when the downturn would occur and when it would pick up was bang on.” Naomie Harris star of Pirates of the Caribbean, Spectre, Moonlight & The Long Song,

This Dragon Year is already proving explosive – which makes timing things well all the more important. Whether you’re planning a conference, a wedding, a trip or an incursion into another nation’s sovereign territory, you need to time it right and tailor it to your purpose and to the people involved.

Doing the right thing in the right place at the right time,” is one definition of feng shui. When we fail it’s generally because we’ve got one of three things wrong: we’ve acted too early, acted too slow or put our attention in the wrong place.

Feng shui can help us with placing; Ze Ri allows us to time things right. Over time we may even combine these skills to make forecasts. In this workshop we will look at how we can time things just so and in the process look at the timing of some world events that seem clearly to have used these methods. Why January 6th 2021 for instance?

Basic Ze Ri consists of four components:

  1. Daily Stem and Branch – the Chinese Animals (or “Pillars”) have established relationships. Knowing these allows us to tell the difference between a helpful and an unhelpful moment. Stay off the roads on a Tiger Day in the Monkey Month!
  2. Daily Officer – there are twelve – tells what kind of activity is appropriate. Bet on an outsider on a Balance Day; space clear on a Remove one.
  3. With a bit of drilling down the Lunar Mansions suggest probable outcomes. Horn suggests plenty; Orion means competition..
  4.  Xuan Kong Da Gua allows us to tailor dates to a particular person, action & place.

Mix these indications up and we begin to have an idea of the events of the day. My additional comments come if you like from dreaming with them. I can teach you that too..

You’ll need to brush up your Stems and Branches but beyond that no prior
knowledge of feng shui is required.
