Balance Day (平), in traditional text is classified as a negative day. This is because since the day only produces a balanced outcome (as opposed to a superior or advantageous outcome), it is seen as not a useful day to choose since the point of Date Selection is to tilt the balance in the user favour. This is a short-sighted view, as date selection is about using the energies of the day for the right activity rather than simply fixated on gaining the superiority of the day. A win-win outcome in modern context enables the building of long term relationship.
