2024 Rituals & Money Deposit Times for Li Chun Day

Depositing money into your account on Li Chun Day can boost your prosperity luck for the year.

Li Chun (立春) marks the first day of the Chinese New Year according to the Chinese solar calendar and is considered the beginning of Spring. Unlike the varying date of the Chinese lunar new year, the solar new year consistently falls on around February 3rd or 4th each year.

In 2024, Li Chun falls on Sunday, 4th February 2024, 4.28 PM (China Standard Time).

Hence, this significant day is celebrated with some fanfare in China. During the Spring Festival, farmers and householders offer elaborate prayers and offerings to the deities of agriculture and the four elements, seeking blessings for abundant harvests and protection from crop diseases and disasters. Historically, great emperors also conducted important ceremonies on this day to request protection from famine and other calamities.

Li Chun is also a significant day in Chinese metaphysics. It marks the date and time the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of of 315°. So this is the actual day that the annual Flying Star Feng Shui Chart and Paht Chee chart of the year comes into effect. Therefore, it’s a crucial date to consider when preparing your home for the new energies of the year.

Traditional rituals are performed on Li Chun to symbolize a fresh and auspicious start. Here are some important activities to undertake before and during Li Chun Day:

1. Settle all debts before Li Chun begins

To start the new year without any “unfinished business”, it’s essential to clear all your financial obligations and mini debts before Li Chun. It is believed that if one begins the year with unpaid debt (even small ones), you are likely to suffer financial setbacks for the rest of the year. This includes settling credit card dues, loan installments, and other contractual debts to business suppliers. Pay back any small debts owed to friends or relatives, and fulfill wage payments to household helpers like gardeners, housekeepers, and babysitters. Avoid making significant purchases or taking out new loans just before Li Chun or Chinese New Year. If necessary, postpone such transactions until after Chinese New Year. 

2. Stock-up your Pantry & Fridge

Stock up your pantry and fridge so that you start off the year with abundance. If rice is your staple, fill up one or more rice urns; having more than one rice urn signifies spare rations. Stock up your pantry with grains, sweets, yoghurt, fruits and veges.

3. Deposit money or create a fixed deposit investment

In Asian tradition, it’s deemed auspicious for money to “arrive” to you on the first day of Spring. To attract prosperity, we deposit money into our bank accounts during favorable astrological times on Li Chun Day. Traditionally, wealthy families added jewels and gold into their treasury, and filled up their grain stores. Similarly, you can deposit cash or ask a relative or spouse to transfer money into your account during the auspicious hour.

Note: Li Chun Day begins at 4:28 pm on February 4th, so all the hours before that time are not relevant for this ritual. The timings provided below are based on China Standard Time (same as Beijing, Malaysia and Singapore Time). If you are in a different time zone, kindly convert the timings to your time zones.

4. Install all your Feng Shui Cures before Li Chun

Since Li Chun is the official day that feng shui and astrological charts take effect, do try to install your cures and enhancers a few days before this date. This ensures that they are already ready to cope with the feng shui energies of the coming year. Of course if you are a few days late for any reason, please don’t fret. Just install them as soon as you have them ready.

5. Prayers for Li Chun Day
