February 11, 2021

Skye Sturgeon, DAOM, L.Ac., Quality Assurance Manager, Mayway

Spring I Ching

The Chinese New Year begins on midnight on the day of the second (or third) new moon following the winter solstice. This year it is February 12th. The hexagram associated with the first month and the approach of Spring is 泰 Tài. As with the case with many Chinese words, tài is polysemous.
