Dear Master Tong,

Thanks for your advice, If I understand you correctly, the wedding dates must be a general good date in the first place and probably the couple will be to choose these dates that is best fit the groom's parent, bride's parent, bride and groom.

My fengshui master calculated our Bazi by the time and year we born. Would it be possible that a general bad date could be a good date for wedding for couple (like a customised calculation?

Hi champagne

Tong Shu dates are generic dates only and not accurate enough. Bazi dates are personalized to individual birthday and time of birth. So the right way and accurate method is using bazi, not the tong Shu.

Hi Tan Joanne

21/9 is a general good date and dont clash anyone

The next good sat after this date will be 19/10

Hope this helps

** note that these are general tong Shu dates only and a good date in the tong Shu can still be deemed as inauspicious for the couple if the date and e couple's bazi are not compatible**

Hi happy woman

As groom is born pig year, snake yr 2013 (after 4th feb) is a bad yr for wedding. Hence you have to do it in jan 2013

The general good dates are -
- 07/01, 31/01

Only 2 good weekdays that doesn't clash to anyone

Hi David Jones

The tong Shi or almanac for 2014 will only be out in Aug 2013, so if you are only looking at general dates, I can only help you next year after almanac is out. Right now e only way and authentic way to select is using bazi (birthday and time of birth)

** note that these are general tong Shu dates only and a good date in the tong Shu can still be deemed as inauspicious for the couple if the date and e couple's bazi are not compatible**

Hi Flowerbee

For 2013, I need to know which month you looking at.

For 2014 dates, contact me after aug 2013 as the tong Shu will only be out then

Right now for 2014 the only wy is to use bazi to select. By time tong Shu is out next year, most hotels will be full

Hi Audrey

That day doesnt clash anyone. However, 2014 tong shu will only be out Aug next yr, so can only check then. Right now the only way to calculate will be using bazi (which is also the right way as tong shu dates are generic dates only).


Active Member
Hi Jolene

that is not a good date for wedding. Plus one of u is born Pig yr, hence 2013 snake yr clashes to Pig, not a good yr for wedding
