f you look at the Kua Number carefully, you
will notice that there are meanings attached
to each of the favourable and unfavourable
direction. For a Kua Number 7 person, NW
is his prosperity direction, SW is health and
so on. If you are aspiring for more money,
for a promotion or better business, then
you should try to face the Sheng Chi (Living
Chi) or Prosperity direction. If your health is
not so great, then try the Tian Yi (Heavenly
Doctor) or Health direction. If your social
life is in a doldrum or you lack good people
interaction skills, you should try to face your
Nian Yen or Relationship direction. Finally
if you have everything that you need and
just want a peaceful, uneventful life, then try
the Fu Wei or Stability direction. In the Eight
Mansions system, the house also has a Kua
Number which is determined by the sitting
direction of the house. There are favourable
and unfavourable sectors. For maximum effect
with the Eight Mansions system, you should
not just face your favourable directions but
also locate yourself in a favourable sector.
In Flying Star Feng Shui, energy groups split into
two main directions, East and West. Your Kua
Number determines which directions are the
most auspicious for you. Once you determine

in which to face

that arises in your life.
Methods to Calculate Kua Number
Depending on the method of calculation you
use, your number may vary a bit. Here are two
methods on how to calculate a Kua Number:
1. Add the last two digits of your birth year
together - For example, if you were born in
1974, you would add 7+4=11.
2. If the above number has two digits, add
those together - Using the above example:
7+4=11 then, 1+1=2.
3. If you are female, add five to the number in
4. If you are male, subtract the number in step
two from 10.
· For females, using the above example,
the math looks like this:
- The Number 7 is the Kua Number.
· For males, using the above example, the
math looks like this:
- 7+4 =11
- 1+1 =2
- 10-2 =8
- Number 8 is the Kua Number because
you don’t have to deal with negatives.
Alternative Method :
1. Add the numbers of your birth year together
- So if you were born in 1974 then you would
2. Add the two digits from step one together -
If it’s just one digit, skip this step.
3. For females, divide the number in step one by
9 - So, the math would be 21/9=2 remainder 3.
4. Add four to the remainder - So, 3+4=7.
Number 7 is the Kua Number.
5. For males, divide by 9, then take the remainder
and subtract it from the number 11 - Using
the example above: 21/9=2 remainder 3. 11-
3=8. Number 8 is the Kua Number.
You can use your best directions in specific areas
of your life. For example, if your Kua Number is
9 and you’re studying for an exam, look for the
direction that coincides with your Fu Wei. In this
case, you will need to try to face South.

Picking lucky numbers isn’t something you do at
random when using Feng Shui principles.
There are certain numbers in Feng Shui that are
considered to be auspicious or bringers of good
luck and fortune. By the same token there are
inauspicious numbers that are avoided whenever
possible or at the least the influence and power
they have is minimized or circumvented.
It’s one thing to know your Kua Number but quite
another to know how to use it. This number will
attract certain energies to you. You can optimize
these energies or forces by enhancing your Kua
Number. To do this, you need to understand the
powerful force of your Kua Number.
If your Kua Number is 7, then you should use this
number whenever possible. For example, if you’re
in the market for a new home, consider
only those homes that have seven
in the address. An address of 700
or 707 is good, but a 777 would
be ideal. If you’re purchasing a
lottery ticket, instead of buying
just one ticket purchase seven
at one time. When selecting
a phone number, go with
one that has several sevens. If
you’re purchasing a computer,
look at the serial number and
select the one that has the most
sevens. These are just a few of the
ways you can use your Kua Number to your
Lucky Auspicious Numbers
There are certain numbers that are considered
auspicious. Two of the most auspicious numbers
are eight and nine. Two is also considered very
You can use these numbers to your benefit
especially if you use them with your Kua Number.
For example, you may decide to purchase a home
with the numbers 787 or 987 in the address.
In Feng Shui, two is very lucky, especially when
it comes to personal relationships and wealth.
Whenever the Chinese give gifts, they do so in
multiples. Two is the least multiple used. Always
double whatever gift you give. If you normally
give a child three gifts for a birthday, then give
her six to increase luck.
How to Maximize Auspicious Numbers
There are other ways you can maximize
auspicious numbers. You can combine numbers
with other lucky symbols.
The double happiness symbol can be combined
with an infinity symbol, known as the mystic knot.
This knot is always created by using a series of six
infinity knots tied together. If you use these two
symbols together along with your Kua Number,
then you create a very powerful symbol that is
embodied by lucky numbers.
Inauspicious Numbers: The
You’ve gone house hunting
and found your dream
home, but the house
number is 444. Don’t
panic. It may seem that
you are doomed to miss
out on the perfect home for
you and your family. There
is an easyFeng Shui cure for
this malady. All you need to do is
change out your house number sign.
It sounds too simple, but it should be with all
things Feng Shui. All you need to do in order to
neutralize the negative effects of the dreaded
number four is to encircle the number. That’s all.
Once the 444 has a nice circle around it,
enclosing all of the numbers, you can move
into your home confident that the negative
energies usually drawn and associated with
the number four is stopped dead in their
tracks, to add a pun.
