The Year of the Metal Ox (辛丑) will be a year filled with opportunities, abundance and prosperity. If you are looking to secure a job promotion, attain massive growth and breakthroughs in your business or achieve consistently high returns from your investment portfolio, this will be an important year.
We will be welcoming the Year of the Metal Ox (辛丑) and bidding farewell to the Year of the Rat on 3 February 2021. The date is significant for a number of reasons, not the least because it marks the Start of Spring or Lichun (立春) – the exact midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox.
For centuries, the emperors of ancient China would faithfully observe these festivals and the time-honoured rites and rituals of the Imperial Court.
As part of his responsibilities, each emperor would conduct three ceremonies every year at the Temple of Heaven to pray for the prosperity of the people.
The first ceremony would commence on the first Xin day stem of the first lunar month (正月上辛日). Here, the emperor would pray for an abundant yield at the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests in the Temple of Heaven.
The second ceremony would take place during the Summer Solstice. This time, the emperor would pray for rain at the Circular Mound Altar.
The final ceremony was the worship of Heaven, held during the Winter Solstice. This was to thank the Heaven for a good harvest that year. It was believed that even the smallest mistake could bring bad luck to the empire, so everything had to be perfect.
Among the three ceremonies that graced the Temple of Heaven every year, the first ceremony was the most important as it sowed the seed of prosperity. It was said that a good start is half the battle won.
In the modern context, this will be the best time of the year to equip and empower yourself with Imperial Harvest treasures in order to achieve results and breakthroughs in your career, business, sales, investment, relationship and wealth.
In this article, Master David personally recommends the most emblematic and iconic Imperial Harvest collections.
The newest generation of Bliss of Harvest rings pays homage to the famous Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests in the Temple of Heaven, commemorating 600 years since its completion.
These lustrous 18K solid rose gold rings are created from a proprietary blend of pure gold, copper and silver, symbolising heaven, earth and human elements respectively. They draw inspiration from the building’s three-tiered roof, which also represents the cosmic trinity of Heaven, Earth and Human luck.
The beautiful hue intensifies with age and evokes the vibrant red found throughout the imperial temple – a colour deeply synonymous with prosperity and auspiciousness.
Each Bliss of Harvest ring is also embellished with a perfectly rounded and glistening jadeite cabochon, which resembles the gilded orb that crowns the Hall of Prayer. It takes hours of finely honed craftsmanship to harvest the cabochon from a jadeite boulder, shaping it to perfection and hand-polishing the gem to bring out its natural depth of colour.
