My new 4-room BTO flat will be ready some time during the 7th month (Hungry Ghost Month), but I heard that it’s unwise to move in during this period as this is an invitation for trouble and bad luck. Is this true? What should I do? - Jesslyn
This is a very common misconception among Singaporeans. From a young age, many of us have been taught to believe the various unspoken rules and Chinese customs surrounding the Hungry Ghost Month. Above all, we are told that negative consequences will befall us if we fail to abide by them.
According to Chinese customs, the Hungry Ghost Month is the time when the gates of hell open, allowing the spirits of the dead to roam freely. Moving into a new home or renovating your home will draw the attention of these wandering spirits and result in bad luck. However, this is merely a cultural myth.
(P.S. You should be more concerned about annual afflictions instead)
Therefore, it’s perfectly fine if you want to move in or renovate your home during this period. If you are still apprehensive, you can engage a Feng Shui master to select an auspicious date and time for moving in or your renovation. Selecting an auspicious date and time ensures that your important day will proceed without hiccups.
Contrary to popular belief, there are many auspicious dates in each month. The Imperial date selection methods used in Imperial Feng Shui are independent of cultural nuances. The date selection systems are: Heaven 天 - Movement of Planetary Stars, Earth 地 - San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia and Human 人 - Bazi Auxiliary Star.
Why are weddings a taboo during the Hungry Ghost Month? Will bad things happen to me if I get married during this period? - Xinyi
Couples are usually advised not to get married during this month as many believe the spirits may curse the marriage, causing it to end badly. Some even say that wedding guests may have supernatural encounters!
But like I mentioned above, it’s fine to hold important events during this month - as long as an auspicious date and time is chosen. In fact, you may be pleased to know that wedding banquet packages are generally cheaper during the Hungry Ghost Month!
Can I make any major business decisions during this time of the year? - Adam
It’s a myth that starting a business, signing a big contract or making big decisions on major projects are not advisable as bad luck may befall you, and you’re likely to fail. You shouldn’t let this ‘advice’ jeopardise any money-making opportunity. After all, successful people seize the moment to act on their goals.
If you do have a business opportunity, download our free monthly Qi Men Dun Jia (奇门遁甲) calendar, which you can use to guide your decisions in your business, career, investments and relationships.
Qi Men Dun Jia is an ancient divination technique developed for and used by the Chinese Emperor and his Imperial advisers. It was originally devised to plan military strategies and tactics and ensure supreme victory in every battle. In modern context, it’s often used by millionaire entrepreneurs, CEOs and business directors to ensure that they have the upper hand.
However, if you feel that you haven’t been able to get the right opportunities or achieve your goals despite putting in effort and hard work, you may be going through a bad luck cycle.
