Ways to Find Your Nine Star Ki Numbers

Like other astrology systems, 9 Star Ki Number astrology uses your birthdate. You can calculate your first Star Ki number with a mathematical formula, or you can use a convenient chart.

Chinese Calendar Year Determines Your Birth Year

You want to keep in mind that each year the Chinese Lunar New Year calendar begins on a different day. Since this date fluctuates, feng shui astrology sets the New Year day as February 4th for every year in the 9 Star Ki astrology system.

Using the Chinese New Year to Find Your First Ki Number

When you use the feng shui astrology, you use the Chinese New Year calendar. You will mark the passing of a year starting on February 4 until February 4 the following year, instead of the Western calendar of January 1 to January 1. Any birthdate that falls between January 1 and February 4 must be calculated as the previous year.

Example of Using Feng Shui Astrology Calendar

An example of how to use the feng shui astrology calendar for a birthdate between January 1 and February 4 illustrates is helpful. If your birthdate is January 30, 1990, you will use January 30, 1989, since the Feng Shui astrology calendar New Year of 1990 doesn't start until February 4. It is important that you remember this, so you use the correct Feng Shui 9 Star Ki number.

9 Star Ki Number Calculator

There are a few online 9 Star Ki number calculators you can use. However, a simple mathematical formula makes it easy to calculate your first Star Ki number.

  1. Add the last two digits of your birth year together.
  2. If the sum is 10 or more, add these two digits together to get a single digit number between 1 and 9.
  3. Subtract this single digit from 10.
  4. The difference between the single number and 10 is your first number.
  5. For example, if you were born in 1989 the formula would look like this:
  • 8+9=17
  • 1+7=8
  • 10-8=2
  • Your first number is 2.
