What's Your (Kua) Number?

Every one of us has a Kua number derived from our date of birth that determines if we are a East or West Group person.

But what does it mean to be a East Group person? Why does it matter if I'm a West Group person?

There are many schools of thought in Feng Shui and the Eight Mansion Feng Shui is one of the most popular.

According to Eight Mansions Feng Shui, there are four directions that are good for you (Auspicious Directions) and four directions that are bad for you (Inauspicious Directions).

Your auspicious and inauspicious directions are determined by your Kua number. When you know how to use your auspicious directions to your advantage, you'll be able to attract positive energies into your life.

In this lesson, you'll learn to calculate your Kua number based on your birth date so that you're able to determine your auspicious and inauspicious directions.

Calculating Your Kua Number

There are two things to take note of when calculating your Kua number.

1. The method of calculating the Kua number for a male is different from that for a female.

2. Your birth year determines your Kua number.

However your birth year is determined with reference to the beginning of Spring based on the Chinese calendar. The beginning of Spring falls on the 3rd, 4th or 5th of February of the Gregorian calendar.

If your birthday is before February 3rd of the Gregorian calendar, you'll need to subtract one year from your "Gregorian birth year".

If your birthday is on 3rd, 4th or 5th of February, it'll be better for you to refer to this Kua Number Quick Reference to ascertain your Kua number.

If your birthday is after 3rd, 4th or 5th of February, you'll simply use your "Gregorian birth year" in the computation.

For Male

Step 1
Add the last two digits of your birth year.

Step 2
If you get a double-digit in Step 1, add up the two digits to get a single digit.

Step 3
Subtract the number derived from Step 2 from 10.

For Female

Step 1
Add the last two digits of your birth year.

Step 2
If you get a double-digit in Step 1, add up the two digits to get a single digit.

Step 3
Add 5 to the number derived from Step 2.

Let's use an example.

If you're born on January, 3rd 1976 based on the Gregorian calendar, you'll subtract a year from your birth year since you're born before February 3rd. So your birth year based on the beginning of Spring of the Chinese calendar is 1975.

Step 1 is to add "7" and "5" to get "12".

Step 2 is to add "1" and "2" to get "3"

If you're a male, you'll subtract "3" from "10" to get "7". So your Kua numbr is 7.

If you're a female, you'll add "5" to "3" to get "8". So your Kua number is 8.



So do you know what's your Kua number now? Check what you've computed with the Kua Number Quick Reference below to see if you got it right.
