Li Chun, the dawn of spring in the Chinese lunar calendar, carries profound cultural significance. It once marked the start of the farming season, symbolising renewal and hope.


In this day and age, however, we deposit money on Li Chun to ensure a prosperous start for the year ahead. Eager to know the auspicious timing for your Chinese zodiac?  


Check the timetable below and set your calendar!  

Best Time for Your Chinese Zodiac Sign to Deposit Money


Based on the Chinese lunar calendar, this year's Li Chun falls on the 4 and 5 February.


The optimal time for money deposits is predicted to be from 11am to 1pm on 5 February 2024 for all zodiac signs, except for those born in the year of the Ox, Snake, Monkey, and Rooster.


Most zodiac signs have two additional favourable time slots for money deposits. The Ox, Dragon, Monkey, and the Pig, however, get an extra opportunity. On the other hand, the Snake, Rat, and the Rooster have only one favourable time.
