In feng shui, a traditional Chinese practice, the Kua number is used to determine an individual's auspicious directions for various activities. One of the most popular uses of the Kua number is for finding an ideal sleeping position that can promote better health, well-being, and peaceful sleep. In this article, we will explain how to calculate the Kua number and use it to find the ideal sleeping position.
Find your Feng Shui bed position
Step 1: What's your gender?
The first step in calculating your Kua number is to determine your gender. Feng shui uses a different formula for males and females.
Step 2: Add up the digits of your birth year
Next, add up the digits of your birth year. For example, if you were born in 1990, add 1+9+9+0, which equals 19. If the sum is a two-digit number, add the digits together to get a single-digit number. In this case, 1+9 equals 10, and then 1+0 equals 1. If you were born before the 4th February, you are the year prior. The kua number system is based on the Chinese calendar, which has a different first day of the year than Western calendars. The year starts at the first day of spring around the 4th of February (depending on the year, to make it a little more confusing, this is not the same day as Lunar New Year).
Step 3: Determine your Kua number
For females, subtract the result from Step 2 from 10. For males, add 5 to the result from Step 2. For example, if you were born in 1990 and are female, you would subtract 1 from 10, which equals 9. If you are male, you would add 5 to 1, which equals 6.
Step 4: Find your auspicious directions
Once you have determined your Kua number, you can use it to find your auspicious directions. There are four auspicious directions and four inauspicious directions for each Kua number. The auspicious directions are the ones that promote good health, success, and well-being. The inauspicious directions are the ones that should be avoided.
