Chinese New Year (CNY) season is here again, and in traditional Chinese culture, Li Chun refers to the start of Springtime in the solar calendar. When you deposit cash during the auspicious date and time, you are said to be blessed with an abundant flow of income during the year.
For those looking to have a huat Year of the Rabbit, look no further than here to know when to cash in for Li Chun and beat the snaking queues at ATMs on that day.
Furthermore, there are no more extended restrictions on bank queues; hoards of aunties and uncles will be trying to cash in for a good new year ahead. Choose your time to head to the ATMs wisely.
When to Deposit Money for Li Chun?
Although Li Chun takes place over a few weeks, from 4 to 19 February 2023, there is still an auspicious date and time for your Zodiac sign to deposit money.
No, we are not talking about the horoscope zodiac signs like Scorpio or Pisces. We are referring to the 12 Chinese Zodiac signs. For example, this year will be the year of the Rabbit, while last year was the year of the Tiger.
According to Way Fengshui Group, these are the auspicious timings for the 12 Zodiac signs on 4 February 2023 (Saturday):
Generally, 9 am to 1 pm will be the most auspicious time for most Zodiac signs to deposit money, except for the Tiger, Rabbit, Goat and Pig.
There are other good times throughout the day to deposit your cash in case you cannot make it from 9 am to 1 pm, or you’ve queued for over four hours and missed the auspicious timings:
1 pm to 3 pm – Rabbit, Horse, Goat, Pig
3 pm to 5 pm – Rat, Dragon, Snake
7 pm to 9 pm – Tiger, Rabbit, Horse
If you forgot to cash in on 4 February, don’t worry too much, as there is still time to do so on 5 February 2023 early morning:
1 am to 3 am – Rat, Snake, Rooster
3 am to 5 am – Horse, Dog, Pig
5 am to 7 am – Goat, Dog, Pig
If you want to beat the crowds, depositing your money on 5 February 2023 would be the better choice. No need to make small talk with the auntie in front of you about your CNY plans since everyone will practically be asleep.
There are also inauspicious timings that we should take note of for this year’s Li Chun.
According to Seedly, the timings are as follows for all Zodiac signs:
4 February 2023: From 5 pm to 7 pm and 9 pm to 11 pm
5 February 2023: From the previous day, 11 pm to 1 am, and 7 am to 9 am
For our non-Chinese friends (or bananas—yellow on the outside, white on the inside), you can find your Chinese Zodiac sign here.
Simply put, avoid banks on 4 and 5 February if you’re not into Li Chun.
Where to Deposit Money for Li Chun
Usually, in Singaporean Chinese customs, we typically deposit cash in our nearby ATMs during the stipulated auspicious timings.
However, if you are pressed for time or hate the idea of queueing, you can always do it digitally.
You can deposit your money from your bank account to DBS Paylah! or OCBC Pay Anyone. So long as you are depositing your money, you welcome Li Chun and shall receive the blessings of prosperity.
As to whether it works as well, we’ve already emailed Cai Shen Ye and will update this article should he reply.
May everyone’s year of the Rabbit be as huat as ever when we deposit money during Li Chun.
But of course, remember: how your year goes depends solely on what you do every day, not when you deposit money during Li Chun. Let this blue cat educate you about this:
