Feng Shui Personal Qua Numbers

Find your personal number

Your feng shui personal qua number is useful in both your home and work settings. It indicates which directions are best for you, which colors you're most successful in, and more.

Find Your Feng Shui Personal Qua Number

Like a feng Shui kau number, your qua number comes from your date of birth based on the Chinese calendar and your gender. You find your number by taking the last two digits of your birth year and adding them together, then reducing the number to a single digit. If you are male, you subtract your number from ten. If you're female, you'll add five to your number and reduce again to a single digit.

If Your Number Is…

Now that you've determined your feng shui personal qua number, you can begin to decipher its meaning. Discover which directions you are most successful (in work, love, and more) while facing, which directions to avoid at all costs when possible, and even the best colors to place in your environment.

Interpretation of Energy Types

You can use your best directions in specific areas of your life. For example, if your qua number is nine 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.

  • Sheng Chi: This is for overall success.
  • Tian Yi: This is for the health of the mind and body.
  • Nien Yan: This is for success in relationships, especially of the romantic variety.
  • Fu Wei: This energy promotes personal growth and intelligence.
  • Jueh Ming: Energy that brings tragic hardships-it influences jobs, relationships, health, and more.
  • Wu Gui: This one tends to bring on quarrels and false hope.
  • Liu Shar: This wreaks havoc on relationships of all kinds.
  • Huo Hai: This energy is one of complete failure across the board.

Using Qua Numbers

Remember that you don't have to adjust everything in your life at once simply because you know what your qua number is now and what that means. You have to take into account others' numbers who live and work in your space and achieve balance. There are also ways around tricky floor plans that point you in the wrong direction.
