Your KUA Number
Knowing the KUA formula of 8 Mansions feng shui is almost mandatory to practicing personalized feng shui that brings the fullest benefit to every resident in the home. This is because the KUA formula is probably the fastest working and most user-friendly of all the formulas of feng shui. To use it, all you need to do is to work out your personal KUA number and from there determine your lucky and unlucky directions, as well as your lucky trigram, lucky number and lucky element. After that it is a question of using this information to create the best feng shui possible from your interior space. So start by learning this formula and determining your directions, and then follow through with the tips in our website, which show you different ways to use your directions. With practice you should be able to incorporate this formula with other methods and formulas of feng shui to create powerfully balanced and harmonious chi energy for all your interiors.
 
THE FORMULA differs for men and women.
  1. Take your year of birth. Convert it to the lunar year. This affects only those born in January and early February (before 7th Feb). Deduct a year from your year of birth if you need to convert. If you were born in the other months, the lunar calendar year is the same as the western calendar. 

  2. Take the last two digits of your year of birth and add them. Keep adding until the sum of the addition is a single digit (e.g.. If you were born April 4th 1978, add 7+8 = 15 and then 1 + 5 = 6) The next step depends on whether you are male or female.

  3. If you are male deduct from 10 so 10 - 6 = 4 and your KUA is 4. If you are calculating for a child born in or after the year 2000 deduct from 9 instead of 10.

  4. If you are female then you add 5 so 5 + 6 =11 and then 1 + 1 =2 and your KUA is 2. If you are calculating for a child born in or after the year 2000, add 6 instead of 5.
