Did You Know?
The method used to calculate the Kua number for females is slightly different from that used for males!
Before we begin with the method of calculating your Kua number, let us understand how the knowledge of your Kua number helps, and how you can use it to enhance your life, and invite health, wealth, happiness, and love. Feng Shui is an ancient science that was developed more than 3,000 years ago in China, and it is based on the principle that everything in this universe has some form of energy associated with it, and the energy of our surroundings can affect us in positive or negative ways. It teaches us ways to balance the energy of a space, in order to make it harmonious for the inhabitants.

Interestingly, what might be lucky for you might prove to be inauspicious for someone else. It all depends on what your lucky colors, numbers, or directions are, and all this is determined by your date of birth as per the Chinese calendar. Your Kua number can guide you to design a home or office space, and you can use it to find out which direction(s) to face while working or sleeping.
Determining Your Kua Number
It's important to note that the method for calculating the Kua number for a male is slightly different from the method for calculating the same for a female.

For a Male
  • Add the last two digits of your year of birth to a single digit number.
  • Now, subtract this single-digit number from 10.
  • The result you get is your Kua number.
For a Female
  • Add the last two digits of your year of birth to a single digit number.
  • Now, add this single-digit number to 5.
  • The result you get is your Kua number. If you get a two-digit number, add the digits again to get your single-digit Kua number.
Now, to make things a little easier for you, let us look at two examples.
Example 1: To calculate the Kua number for a man born in 1968
Following the steps discussed above, we shall first add the last two digits of his birth year, till we get a single digit.

Thus, 6 + 8 = 14 (which is a double digit number so we add the digits again)

Thus, 1 + 4 = 5

So, we get the number 5, which we should now subtract from 10.

Thus, 10 - 5 = 5, which is the Kua number.
Example 2: To calculate the Kua number for a woman born in 1981
Following the steps given above, we shall first add the last two digits of the birth year, till we get a single digit.

Thus, 8 + 1 = 9 (which is a single-digit number)

So, we get the number 9, which we should now add to 5.

Thus, 5 + 9 = 14 (which is a double digit number)

Thus, adding the digits we get, 1+4 = 5, which is the Kua Number.
