Everyone likes auspicious timing, and today we are going to explore what is a Month Breaker and a Year Breaker. As the “breaker” word implies that something is broken. You’re absolutely correct. Breaker is something not really good. But we see what good this can bring about in the article here.
Year Breaker (歲破)
A “governing” force known as the Grand Duke or “Tai Sui” exists each year. In common parlance, the Grand Duke title is bestowed upon one of the twelve Chinese zodiac animals. For instance, 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, hence the Grand Duke resides at the Rabbit’s place.
The Year Breaker, commonly known as “Sui Po,” is the Grand Duke’s opposing star. The Year Breaker is analogous to a “opposition” that goes against the year’s established pattern. As a result, it is not a favorable day for crucial personal or professional endeavors, as the day’s energy is not very consistent.
The year 2023 is the Rabbit year 卯(Mao). Rabbit clashes with Rooster 酉(You), and Rabbit’s Year Breaker day is a Rooster day. Therefore, avoid the day of the rooster if you’re planning anything significant.
Month Breaker (月破)
Month breaker days are those that go against the energy of the month. When compared to the Year Breaker Day, the Month Breaker Day is more significant because the current month’s energy is more active and it is considerably closer to the day of any activity chosen. As a result, the impact is stronger, and the changes experienced are more profound.
Each month is symbolized by a different zodiac in Chinese Metaphysics. The Month Breaker Day is a day when the energy clashes with the month’s main energy.
For example, in the month of February 寅(Yin). Look for the opposite energy would be 申(Shen). Every (Shen) day in the month of (Yin) is Month Breaker Day. It’s that simple.
What to do during these days?
Well, for many classical theory people, they would even avoid going out from the house, and try to avoid any possible mishaps or misfortune. This is not necessarily wrong but I think we can make good use of this day, since it’s unavoidable.
Some of the most top tier Chinese Metaphysic Consultant will tell you this. The word Po (破) in Chinese means broken, or in daily terminology it means lose (as in losing money).
Avoid making decisions
- buying a car or a house (or assets)
- any signing of contracts of any kind
- any legal matters and confrontations
- any investments
- timed surgery of any kind (unless it’s of critical situation)
Well, generally when we make decisions, we will look at the long term impact of any kind. When buying any assets or signing of any contracts, these days should be avoided. As a result, today is another day to avoid engaging in any auspicious activities.
Good to do during these days
If you are a Chinese Metaphysics Consultant, you might be wondering if there’s any good in these days. Well, if you look closely, there are many things we can do during these days.
- pay bills
- grocery shopping
- buying gifts
- treating someone or a group of people with good meals
Why we do these?
There’s an ancient saying in Chinese that is still relevant to that is still relevant to this day. 破财挡灾, this literally means “Losing money to prevent disaster“. But you might want to tell me, I don’t want to lose money. Living in today’s modern society, we need money for our daily life. Be it, rental, paying bills, grocery shopping or etc. All this is money going out from our pockets, isn’t it? So, losing money but in the correct manner, that wouldn’t hurt us directly, because bills are to be paid anyways.
And if you understand the connections in the above, losing money to prevent disaster. Well then, these money are meant to be lost anyway. They can be your rental, and utilities bills. Why not use this day to make sure you live a debt free life? And these will even make our life more balance.
Most people believe that Chinese Metaphysic is an ancient subject that only relates to ancient times. However, most good Feng Shui practitioners have already advanced to a higher level, which simply means that they can apply Feng Shui knowledge to make it helpful and relevant to today’s reality.
