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.
