YOUR KUA NUMBER
Ming Gua or Life Trigram

Your personal directions based on date of birth.
The best way to begin Feng Shui is to determine the four most favorable corners of your home, office or an area of a room. These corners will be your luckiest; thus creating better chi (energy) in your environment. To determine which 4 corners/directions are your luckiest you need to know your Kua Number (also called Gua Number). A Kua Number is calculated by the year of your birth and gender. It used to determine your four 'lucky corners' (your "Auspicious" [successful/favorable] directions) or 'unlucky corners' (your "Inauspicious" [unsuccessful/unfavorable] directions). Your Kua Number will also determine whether you are in the East Group or West Group.

The group is used to determine your best element, best season, best color, your character, and which direction to most avoid.
Kua numbers 1, 3, 4, or 9 are people in the East Group.
Kua number is 2, 6, 7, 8 or a 5 female or male are people in the West Group.
NOTE: Some schools of Feng Shui do not use the Kua Number 5. Females replace it with Kua 8 and the men replace it with Kau 2

To calculate your Kua number use the calculator below or this simple formula. Take the last two numbers of the year you were born and add them together. Reduce them down to a single digit. For example if you were born in 1957 then you take the 57; 5+7=12; 1+2=3.

MALE - take the single digit and subtract it from 10. Example: 1957 single number of 3; 10-3=7. The Kua number is 7.

FEMALE - take the single digit and add 5. Using the 1957 single number of 3; 3+5=8. The Kua number is 8.


Calculate YOUR Kua Numbers

October 27, 2013 update:
To those born in January or February before the new Chinese year began
I want to apologize for the incorrect instructions that were given before.
I hired an college intern to work on my site, for pay and college credit.
Apparently he changed my info from 'subtract a year' to 'add a year".
Thanks to a concerned visitor, thank you Laura, it has been corrected.



NOTE: To those of you born in January or February, there is a little confusion with the calculator.
When using the calculator remember Feng Shui is based on the Lunar Calendar; not the Solar Calendar.
The year changes in January or February. This script doesn't calculate for people born before the year.
Check the Lunar Calendar to see if you were born before or after the new year began.
If you were born before the new year began then subtract a year.

Here are two examples: my daughter & my niece - both born before the new year began.
My daughter was born Feb. 6, 1972.
The new year began Feb. 16, 1972
1972 was the year of the "Rat".
To calculate correctly subtract a year
Hence 1971; the year of the "Boar"
Using 1972, the calculator says her kua # is 5
For accuracy she enters 1971 and her kua # is 4,
which is the correct number.
My niece was born Jan. 13, 1971.
The new year began Jan. 26, 1971
1971 was the year of the "Boar".
To calculate correctly subtract a year
Hence 1970; the year of the "Dog"
Using 1971, the calculator says her kua # is 3
For accuracy she enters 1970 and her kua # is 2,
which is the correct number.
