Spring Equinox in Imperial Feng Shui

Estimated Reading Time: 3 mins

The Spring Equinox, also known as Chun Fen (春分), marks the midpoint of the spring season. Spring brings much relief from its preceding winter season, with daylight hours gradually lengthening and temperatures becoming increasingly warmer. In many parts of the northern hemisphere, the Spring Equinox begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 0° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 15°.

It forms the 4th of 24 solar terms of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, beginning on 20 March this year.

Imperial Feng Shui Significance

In Imperial Feng Shui, spring is closely associated with the minor yang. One of the four phenomena that form Tai Ji, the collective essence of Heaven and Earth, the minor yang’s significance in Imperial Feng Shui lies in its governance of an individual’s innate intuition. Referring to the ability to discern and identify key information in the absence of clarity, intuition is a critical factor in making sound decisions. Good intuition prevails in the face of ambiguity, empowering individuals to act decisively, seize opportunities and enjoy first-mover advantages.

The inherent link between intuition and the minor yang entails that increasing one’s intuitive qualities would be paramount in ensuring an optimal balance of this important phenomenon.

Imperial Rites during the Spring Equinox

The Spring Equinox marks a day when the sun is situated directly above the earth’s equator, with both day and night being of equal length. In Chinese culture, this equilibrium becomes a significant characteristic of the Spring Equinox.

In dynastic China, the arrival of the Spring Equinox gave rise to a traditional festival, with the esteemed Chinese emperors leading in time-honoured imperial rites in the worship of the sun. Such imperial rites to the sun during the Spring Equinox originated during the Zhou dynasty (1046–771 BC), with the imperial family offering various specially-prepared tributes to the Sun God. These rites took place at the Temple of the Sun (日坛), an altar commissioned to be built in 1530 during the late Ming dynasty by Emperor Jia Jing. Since then, it has stood as the foremost site for tributary worship to the sun, to which they prayed for the ideal weather conditions for the nourishment of crops.

Although the Temple of the Sun fell into disrepair by 1911, plans were drawn in 1955 to restore the temple and its surrounding compound. By 1969, it was fully restored and reopened to the public, where it has since received and welcomed visitors and tourists alike.

Tributes of various offerings were thought to soothe the Sun God’s temperament, in turn ushering in another year of successful and bountiful harvests. As a primarily agrarian society, the success of a harvest season was largely dependent on suitable weather conditions, leading to the continuance of this tradition in some parts of China today.

During the Tang dynasty, it was customary to present gifts of farming equipment to foster agricultural practices. Partaking in traditional delicacies and wines was also prevalent during the Spring Equinox.

An auspicious occasion

With the Spring Equinox marking the midpoint of the season, the season’s auspicious energies are heightened further during the occasion. During this period, the birthdays of three of the most important deities in Chinese culture are commemorated and celebrated by devotees worldwide:

  • Career Wealth God Tua Pek Gong’s birthday: 2nd day of the 2nd lunar month (4 March)
  • Goddess of Mercy Guan Yin’s birthday: 19th day of the 2nd lunar month (21 March)
  • Supreme Wealth God Xuan Tian Shang Di’s birthday: 3rd day of the 3rd lunar month (3 April)
