The thirteenth Chinese Solar Term is called ‘Li Qiu’, ‘The beginning of Autumn’. The leaves of trees starts to fall. The Yang energy in Nature descents. It comes on 07/08/2016.
The Yin Qi, also known as Yin Energy, in nature gets stronger slowly and steadily. And the Yang Qi, also known as Yang Energy, descents gradually in the mean time.
