Success Day (成) is the most auspicious and positive day of this system. On Success Days, the energies are positive (of course, the practitioner need to take note other date selection aspects such as year clash and month breaker etc).

Success Day (成) are suitable for all activities that require positive starts and positive outcomes. Accordingly, it is good to use a Success Day to get married (as well as marriage proposal), submit a business proposal, seek medical treatment, begin construction of a property, move into a new house and for burial (i.e. to activate the positive Feng Shui aspects for the descendants). FYI, in Burial there are 2 aspects: 凶藏 vs 吉藏).
