How to discover your Kua Number

If you want to attract good fortune in to your life. one of the simplest and most effective actions you can take is to place a Feng Shui enhancement or cure in one of your personal auspicious areas in your home. Your home’s auspicious areas are derived from your own Kua number, a number between 1 and 9 that controls your own personal energy and that is very easy for you to work out. Working out your Kua number, and from this identifying the auspicious areas in your home, enables you to link your own personal energies with the energies that flow through your home. Any enhancements placed in these areas can therefore be very powerful and bring almost immediate good luck.

Auspicious areas can be found both by identifying favourable directions on the whole floorplan or footprint of your home, or if you want to enhance fortune in a specific part of your life, by identifying the favourable directions in certain rooms in your home. Identifying your Kua number, and from here the auspicious areas of your home, is a very simple and easy process and can be used to make a very quick enhancement to bring balance and harmony to the energy in your home. These enhancements although effective are what I call shortcuts and should not be used to replace any other harmonization that you may want to do in your home. They may bring some “quick wins” to your life but please don’t assume that you can then sit back and do nothing, energy needs to be constantly nurtured and cherished if you are to have everlasting balance and abundance in your life.

To identify auspicious areas in your home you first of all need to work out your personal Kua number. You can do this by following the formula below. Before you do this there are two things to bear in mind. Firstly the formula is different for a woman than a man so ensure that you are following the correct formula for your gender. Secondly your birth is based on the Chinese year, not the western year, so if your birthday falls between January 1st and early February your Kua number will be derived from the year before.

Formula for working out your Kua number

For a woman

Add the final two numbers of your year of birth together. If this makes a double digit number add these two numbers together. Your aim is to have a single digit number. Once you have a single digit number add this number to the number 5. If this addition makes a double digit number add these two numbers together until you have a single digit number. This is your Kua number.

Examples

Caroline was born in August 1974. Adding 7 and 4 together makes 11 so Caroline would have to add these two numbers together (1 + 1) which makes a 2. Adding 2 to 5 means Caroline’s Kua number is 7.

Bridget was born in May 1954. Adding 5 and 4 together makes 9 which means no further addition needs to be done at this stage. Bridget then adds 9 to 5 which makes 14. To find her Kua number Bridget would need to add 1 and 4 together meaning her Kua number is the number 5

For a man

Add the final two numbers of your year of birth together and if you get a double digit number add these together until you get to a single digit number. This single digit number should be subtracted from the number 10.

Examples

John was born in September 1964. Adding 6 and 4 together gives 10, so John would need to add 1 and 0 together giving the number 1. Subtracting 1 from 10 means John’s Kua number is 9

Richard was born in January 1991. This is before the Chinese New Year so Richard according to the Chinese zodiac was born in the year before and so would need to add the final two numbers together of the year 1990. Adding 9 and 0 together gives 9, subtracting 9 from 10 means Richard’s Kua number is the number 1.

For a child

To work out the Kua number of a child then for a boy the Kua number is obtained by subtracting the two final numbers of their year of birth from 9 (unless he was born in 2009 in which case his Kua number is 9) and for a girl adding the single digit number obtained from the final numbers of her birth year to the number 4.

Once you have your Kua number you can identify the auspicious areas in your home. There are many auspicious areas in your home and they govern certain aspects of your life. When placing enhancements or cures in auspicious areas you should first identify which area of your life you want to attract good fortune and abundance to.

Below I have provided information on the most auspicious areas of your home dependant on each individual Kua number. Auspicious areas can be beneficial for attracting wealth and success, love and romance, health and longevity and personal fulfillment and wellbeing. If you want to attract good fortune in all of these aspects then enhancements can be placed in each of the auspicious areas. If you want to enhance your fortunes in one of the areas then the enhancement should be placed in the auspicious area that corresponds with that area of your life. For example if you want to attract more wealth to your home and your Kua number is 1 then an enhancement should be placed in the South East area of your house or garden.

One final point to remember when placing any enhancement or cure is to do so with intention, so for each enhancement you make you should perform the three secrets reinforcement.
