You may be interested to know that there are over a few hundred
methods of selecting dates during the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the
Qin dynasty. He ordered a committee to evaluate the various methods to
weed out those which are considered inaccurate. Later his grandson
Chen Loong formed another committee to further reduce the number and
they came our the XieJi which is a reference book of date selection

Despite this, other methods continue to be practiced and many survive
to this day. The Chinese Almanac is good source of auspicious dates
but there are differences even between publisher. The main reason is
the weight given to the various methods.

For example the year breaker which happens when the earth branch of
the day clash with the earth branch of the year is observed by all
publisher as an inauspicious day. However not all publisher would
agree that the 'monthly taboo days' are bad enough to be listed as an
inauspicious day. Similarly not all auspicious days are considered
auspicious by all publishers. So while the 'yearly wealth day' would
be observed as auspicious by most published, the 'will of heaven day'
may not be viewed in the same light.

The same confusion applies to the selection of auspicious hour.

I have a resource that you may find useful. It is on online ten
thousand year calendar that facilitate the conversion between western
dates and the Chinese Lunar and Solar Calender dates. You can view it
