Often assuming the form of an old man, Yue Lao (月老) is the god of matchmaking and marriage in the Chinese pantheon, overseeing relationship matters between people and binding destined couples together.
According to legend, Yue Lao appears under the moonlight, holding the Book of Marriage (姻缘簿) and lengths of red thread. Reading from the Book of Marriage, he unites all destined couples together with the thread — forming the basis for beliefs surrounding the red thread of fate.
The red thread of fate is symbolic of the Chinese idiom, 千里姻缘一线牵, loosely translating to “a fated match across a thousand miles drawn by a thread” — indicating that those destined to be together will find each other even if they are miles apart.
With a long, varied history spanning several millennia-long, the Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important holidays in Chinese culture; its popularity rivalled only by the Lunar New Year festivities. During the Qing Dynasty, the Empress Dowager Cixi was known to have greatly enjoyed the Mid-Autumn Festival, spending the days between the 13th and 17th days of the 8th lunar month staging elaborate rituals in celebration of the occasion.
Marking the end of the autumn harvest, the Mid-Autumn Festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month — coinciding with the birthday of Yue Lao. Not only does the festival celebrate the end of the autumn harvest, but it is also a celebration of the moon. Therefore, it is also a celebration of Yue Lao.
With Yue Lao’s birthday coinciding with the Mid-Autumn Festival, it marks a traditionally auspicious occasion to pray for fruitful relationships, budding romance and harmonious marriages. During this opportune time, many devotees seek out the god of marriage’s guidance and influence, aiding them in their marriage or relationship concerns, in finding their fated partner or in maintaining relationship harmony with their significant other.
