The Lunar Chinese New Year Day 2015 is very different from the Solar (Hsia) New Year Day as the new moon changes from year to year; Chinese New Year can begin any time between late January and mid February and in 2015 the Lunar New Year starts on 19th February 2015.

In Feng Shui we use the solar calendar to place Feng Shui cures and enhancers and in 2015 brings us the Yin Wood Goat/Sheep and will arrive on 4th February 2015 in China Standard Time. The first day of Chinese astrology year is the first day of the Tiger month. This is the day of the start of spring in the Chinese astrology calendar.

The start of spring is when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac.

This date is frequently confused with the day you would celebrate. Chinese New Year day is on 19th February 2015 in China Standard Time. Chinese New Year Day is the new moon day of the first lunar month.
