I know what you’re thinking: It’s 2020! Do people still Bai Tai Sui (拜太岁) ? I know I don’t! That’s so 1920! So what are the Chinese Zodiac signs that need to Bai Tai Sui (拜太岁) in 2020 arh)? Asking for a friend.
Lest you’re not aware, Tai Sui (太岁) are the stars that are directly opposite the planet Jupiter, and they personified as deities in Chinese astrology.
The deities are in charge of people’s fortune. Every year, there would be several Chinese zodiac signs that would be in conflict with Tai Sui, which we’ll refer to as “犯太岁”.
These people would have unstable luck the entire year, so in order to counter the bad luck, they’ll have to worship the Tai Sui deities (拜太岁).

How to Bai Tai Sui in Singapore
You’d have to bai tai sui in the first fifteen days of the Chinese New Year.
To do so, simply go to a temple and ask the staff on what you should do. You do not need to bring anything as you can buy the offerings from the temple. Or just follow the crowd because there’d most likely be many people bai-ing tai sui, too.
However, do bring extra cash in an ang bao as it’s a tradition to give an ang bao to the temple.

If you’d like to, you can help your loved ones to bai tai sui, too.
But of course, do remember this…
Your Fate is Determined by You
It doesn’t matter whether you 破太岁 or 犯太岁 or 吃大便—your fate is always entirely in your own hands.
If you’re an evil man, no amount of praying is going to cleanse the sins within you.
So just take this with a pinch of salt. Or just treat it as a gathering with your friends or family members.
