Feng Shui Li-Chun (立春)
The rain tree near my home is blooming once again. Many flowering plants will start flowering and blooming in the time of spring. In Feng Shui, we are particular about 4 February, as it marks the beginning of Spring. We call it Li-Chun (立春). Every year, to the Chinese, the beginning of spring is called the Li-Chun (立春).
Under the Chinese solar calendar, there are 24 solar terms, known as Jie-Qi (節氣). Li-Chun is the first term of the 24 solar term. It is an important day to the ancient Chinese farmers. Li-Chun (立春) usually begins around February 4 and ends around February 18 under the Gregorian or also called the Western calendar.
A more astrological explanation would be the the starting of Li-Chun (立春) begins when the Sun reaches the celestial longitude of 315° and ends when it reaches the longitude of 330°. It more often refers in particular to the day when the Sun is exactly at the celestial longitude of 315°.
Under the Chinese farmers tradition, a clear day on Li-Chun (立春) would means good harvest throughout the whole year.But if its a raining day, the Chinese farmers would take extra precaution on their crops for that year.
