Li Chun 2024: When is the most auspicious time to deposit money?

Li Chun signifies the beginning of spring, which usually happens on the first week of February or during the Chinese New Year period. For this year, it falls on February 4 and 5.

In an interview with GMA News Online, Feng Shui expert and Geomancer Patrick Lim Fernandez said Li Chun is an important date in Ancient China because it signifies “being able to plant when winter ends.”

Every year during Li Chun, each Chinese Zodiac sign has specific hours that are said to be the most auspicious time to deposit money in your savings account as a symbol for a steady flow of funds for the entire year.

For 2024, the most auspicious time for all Chinese Zodiac Signs is on February 5, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Here are the other specific hours for each Chinese Zodiac Signs:

  • Rat: February 5, 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
  • Ox: February 4, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.; February 5, 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.
  • Tiger: February 4, 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

  • Pig: February 5, 3 a.m. to 7 a.m.; February 5, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Aside from depositing money during Li Chun, Fernandez said the Chinese culture also has a calendar with dates that are good for different purposes like contract signing, groundbreaking, haircuts, and even days to avoid when doing important things.

“People use it as a guide, especially if they have a choice to open a business on certain days, move to a new home, or get married,” he said.

“Kasi if you do something important on a date that is not good for you, then baka sa simula pa lang, baka mahirapan ka na,” he added.
