As 2008 comes to a close, most of us would start consulting Feng Shui experts and clairvoyants about their predictions for 2009. Common questions would be “Will this be a prosperous or difficult year?”, “What are the lucky dates to do business this year?” and others. For couples who are starting to prepare for their wedding, your concern would be “What are the auspicious dates and lucky colors for weddings in 2009?”

Lucky Colors

Whether it’s an extravagant celebration or an intimate occasion, you see to it that every detail of your special day is well taken care of. You may want to pay attention to the theme and color motif of your wedding. Based on Feng Shui, colors should produce harmony between the bride (Yin) and the groom (Yang). Furthermore, black, the color of Yin in the Tai-Chi symbol, represents a woman while white, the color of Yang, represents a man. Their respected energies should harmonize with their partner’s energy. To do so, one has to bear his or her opposite color. This is why a man usually wears a black suit and a woman wears a white dress during their wedding.

Aside from personal colors, the color of your environment may affect your relationship in the future. Creating a color palette that conveys a positive energy may contribute to marital happiness. Here are some color combinations and their meanings.

Represents Yin and Yang:

  • Red and Pink
  • Dark Blue and Light Blue
  • Purple and Lavender
  • Dark Green and Light Green
  • Purple and White

Other Combinations:

  • Black and white – male and female, harmony
  • Red and green – happiness, luck and success (Great for Christmas weddings)
  • Yellow (ochre) and red – perfect feng shui pairing for harmony, good social standing, and wealth
  • Metallic colors (white, silver, gray, gold) with yellow – creativity/children
  • Green and blue – prosperity, growth, good health and wealth
  • Blue with metal colors – peace and prosperity
  • Black and green – wealth, growth and longevity

Especially auspicious color combinations:

  • Gold and Purple – great wealth
  • Silver and Purple – great wealth
  • Green and Purple (can be lavenders or light purple) – great abundance, growth, longevity and wealth
  • Purple and Black/White – career and financial success

Save the Date

As for dates, the auspicious dates for weddings depend on several factors. One is your Chinese birth signs, represented by the 12 animals (Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig); the other is the 5 elements (wood, fire, earth, metal and water). 2009 is the Year of the Earth Ox. This year may be advantageous or may be challenging depending on yours and your partner’s birth signs. But generally, here are the fair and lucky dates to get married in 2009.
