Your Lucky and Unlucky Directions According to Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the science of directions and energy. It can help you figure out your personal lucky and unlucky direction for different areas of your life.

To determine this, Feng Shui uses Kua number, which is a system of numerology based on your year of birth and sex. This number can be easily calculated and lucky directions can be identified to get beneficial results in all fields of life.

The system divides numbers into two groups indicating the East and West group.

Numbers 1, 3, 4 and 9 belong to East group and their favourable directions are North, South, East and South-East. Numbers 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 belong to West group and their favourable directions West, North-West, South-West and North-East. Kua number calculation is different for males and females.


Your Lucky and Unlucky Directions According to Feng ShuiKua Number Calculation for Males

Suppose a male is born on 12th Oct 1972. Add the last two digits of the year i.e. 7+2= 9, now subtract this from 10 i.e 10-9=1. The Kua number in this case is 1 and the favourable direction will be North, East, South and South-East as it belongs to the East group.

Kua Number Calculation for Females

Suppose a female is born on 12th Oct 1967 then add the last two digits of the year and add 5 to it. 6+7=13=4+5=9. The Kua number in this case is 9. This number also belongs to East group and lucky directions are as above.

However, 4 February is taken as the cut-off date according to the traditional Solar calendar. If a child is born on 2nd Feb 1988, his birth year is taken as 1987 as his date of birth is before 4th Feb. and if a child is born on 7th Feb 1988 his birth year will be taken as 1988 only as his date of birth falls after 4th Feb.

  1. Thanks for your post. Another element is that to be a photographer entails not only problems in capturing award-winning photographs but also hardships in acquiring the best camera suited to your requirements and most especially issues in maintaining the standard of your camera. It is very genuine and clear for those photographers that are in to capturing the particular nature’s fascinating scenes : the mountains, the actual forests, the wild or maybe the seas. Visiting these exciting places unquestionably requires a digicam that can live up to the wild’s unpleasant surroundings.
