Personal Life Kua

Personal Kua number can be derived from one’s birth details. This number helps one to find the auspicious and inauspicious personal directions. One is to use the auspicious directions for personal success and important matters and avoid the inauspicious.

There are two types of Kua, one is personal life Kua and another is the house Kua. Both also have the East and West group, and 4 auspicious and 4 inauspicious sectors.

Do note that it is more important to be located in a favorable location (based on house Kua), than being in a bad location but facing one’s favorable direction (based on personal life Kua). If you can achieve both by being in a good location and facing your best direction then it would be ideal.

The Difference

Personal life Kua is only unique to you. But house Kua is for a household. This is used over personal life Kua simply because one’s auspicious direction would be inauspicious for another in the same house. Thus using house Kua would benefit the entire family.

Identify Your Personal Life Kua

The important details required are the year of birth as per the Chinese Calendar Year, and the gender.

As the Chinese New Year’s date is not fixed, thus those born in January and February may have a different year of birth compared to those born after.

Formula to Calculate

Below are the examples of how Kua number is calculated.

For Female

Example 1

  1. add the last two numbers of the year of birth, and bring it to a single digit.
    • year of birth 1986
    • 8 + 6 = 14 >> 1 + 4 = 5
  2. add the single-digit to the number 5 (for those born after the year 2000, add 6 instead of 5), and bring it to a single digit.
    • 5 + 5 = 10 >> 1 + 0 = 1
  3. the single digit is your Kua number.
    • 1 is your kua number

Example 2

  1. add the last two numbers of the year of birth, and bring it to a single digit.
    • year of birth 2011
    • 1 + 1 = 2
  2. add the single-digit to the number 6 (for those born before or the year 2000, add 5 instead of 6), and bring it to a single digit.
    • 2 + 6 = 8
  3. the single digit is your Kua number.
    • 8 is your kua number

For Male

Example 1

  1. add the last two numbers of the year of birth, and bring it to a single digit.
    • year of birth 1986
    • 8 + 6 = 14 >> 1 + 4 = 5
  2. subtract the single-digit number result from number 10 (for those born after the year 2000, deduct 9 instead of 10).
    • 10 – 5 = 5
  3. the single digit is your Kua number.
    • 5 is your kua number

Example 2

  1. add the last two numbers of the year of birth, and bring it to a single digit.
    • year of birth 2011
    • 1 + 1 = 2
  2. subtract the single-digit number result from number 9 (for those born before or the year 2000, deduct 10 instead of 9).
    • 9 – 2 = 7
  3. the single digit is your Kua number.
    • 7 is your kua number

East & West Group

This is also one of the reason why house Kua is used over personal life Kua. Each family member may belong to a different group, thus using house Kua will be beneficial for all. However, personal life Kua can be used for personal facing or sleeping directions.

Facing means doing something or when you are in action. You may face your Sheng Qi or Yan Nian direction, whichever is more important. Perhaps arrange your study desk or computer to face one of these directions.

However, if you are sleeping, then your head needs to point in your favorable direction. For example, either Tian Yi or Fu Wei direction, these two are more suitable for inactive activities.
