A Sunshine Bath For Yang Energy

When you take a sunshine bath to replenish your yang essence, do choose a day when the weather is clear and bright. It is not good to do it on a day when it is raining or drizzling, snowing or dreary.


In general, it is good to do this ritual during the time of the Dragon, when you can tap into sunrise energy between 7am and 9am. However, you can also choose a time that harmonizes with your own Chinese Zodiac sign.

Time Animal Signs Sun Light
Time: 7am to 9am Animal Signs: Dragon, Monkey, & Rat Sun Light: Sun rising
Time: 9am to 11am Animal Signs: Snake, Rooster & Ox Sun Light: Sun shines a little brighter
Time: 11am to 1pm Animal Signs: Horse, Dog & Tiger Sun Light: Sun has traveled higher up the horizon
Time: 1pm to 3pm Animal Signs: Sheep, Boar & Rabbit Sun Light: Sun has traveled even higher up in the sky

How to take a Sunbath:

  1. Stand for about 3 minutes in your garden or on your balcony, simply soaking up the sunlight.
  2. Keep your facial expressions relaxed but be alert to your surroundings. This is an excellent time to tune in to signals from nature. Keep your eyes open.
  3. Read the signs. For example, if you see a bird singing, it is an excellent indication that some new opportunity or good news is winging its way to you.
