Now that you know how the elements, Bagua, and yin and yang all work together to balance and harmonize the energy of your home, you also need to discover your own most auspicious direction; this is done by determining your kua number. This number is your lucky number in Chinese astrology. It tells you which of the eight Bagua compass points is right for you. This is the direction you should face when doing certain things, like sleeping, studying, and even eating.

Dates of the Chinese New Year

For Those Born Around the Chinese New Year: If you were born between January 1 and February 20, check the Chinese Lunar Calendar to see what date the Chinese New Year fell on in the year of your birth. If you were born before the Chinese New Year, you must subtract one from the year of your birth. For example, if you were born on January 23, 1971 (the Chinese New Year in 1971 fell on January 27), you would count your birth year as 1970.

How to calculate your Kua number?

1. Take the last two digits of your birth year and add them together. For example, if you were born in 1970, then you’d add 7 and 0, to equal 7. If the result is greater than 9, add the two digits together to get a final result of a single digit.

2. If you’re female, add 5 to the number that you have pro- duced. For example,

5 + 7 = 12.

3. If you’re male, subtract your answer from 10. For example, 10 – 7 = 3.

4. If the number you end up with is greater than 9 (as in the female example, above) add the two digits together and reduce them to one digit. For example,

1 + 2 = 3.

5. If the answer is 5 and you are male, your most auspicious direction is the same as it is for number 2.

6. If the answer is 5 and you are female, your most auspicious direction is the same as for number 8.

Example 1

1. Warren was born on January 17, 1984.

2. The Chinese New Year was February 2 in that year, so he has to move his year of birth back to 1983.

3. He adds the last two digits of his year together: 8 + 3 = 11.

4. He must now reduce this to one number: 1 + 1 = 2.

5. He now takes 2 away from 10: 10 – 2 = 8.

6. Warren’s kua number is 8.

Example 2

1. Darcy was born on September 28, 1987.

2. She must add the last two digits of her year together: 8 + 7 = 15.

3. She must now reduce this to one number: 1 + 5 = 6.

4. She must now add 5 to the number: 5 + 6 = 11.

5. She must now reduce this to one number: 1 + 1 = 2.

6. Darcy’s kua number is 2.

Best direction according to your Kua number

Although the Bagua locations of your home are fixed, it is use- ful to know the best direction for you to face when working, sit- ting for long periods of time, eating, and sleeping. So if your best direction is east, try to have the headboard of your bed facing east. 

When relaxing in your living space, eating in a restaurant, or signing an important document, try to sit facing east. Your best direction reinforces your personal energy and is highly auspicious for balancing the other energies in the environment.

  • 1: Southeast
  • 2: Northeast
  • 3: South
  • 4: North
  • 5: (Male) Northeast (Female) Southwest
  • 6: West
  • 7: Northwest
  • 8: Southwest
  • 9: East
