New house key collection and entering day


I will be collecting the keys to my new house anytime within the next 2 weeks. As we are entering the Chinese 7th month, should I collect the keys and not enter the new house until the 7th month is over or are there dates that are auspicious during 7th month which I can enter the house to check for defects?

Hi Ken,

Yes, there is a custom in China that people had better not move into the new house in the Chinese lunar month of July (Starting from August 3 to August 31 in Gregorian calendar in 2016).

But as long as you choose an auspicious dates, the bad effects could be eliminated. You could choose one of the following auspicious dates:

6th (Clash Tiger), 8th (Clash Dragon), 10th (Clash Horse), 13th (Clash Rooster), 14th (Clash Dog), 15th (Clash Pig), 18th (Clash Tiger), 22nd (Clash Horse), 26th (Clash Dog) of August.
