There are many ways and versions to calculate and arrive at your Kua number. Your Kua number allows you to
identify your auspicious and inauspicious sitting and/or facing directions and sectors and also helps in
your selection of colours as far as your dressing, accessories, jewelleries and assets (like cars) are concerned.
To calculate the Kua number, you will first have to determine the year you were born under the Lunar calendar.
(See chart on Dates of Lunar new year from 1924 to 2005). Take the last 2 digits of the year and add them
together until you arrive at a single digit. Then for men subtract this single digit from 10.
For example, if you are born in the year 1954, take the last 2 digit i.e. 54 and add them. You now have 9.
Subtract this from 10 and you have a balance of 1. This balance number is your KUA number.
For the ladies, add the last 2 digits to arrive at a single digit and add it again to 5. Add until you
arrive at a single digit and you have your KUA number. As such the KUA number for the above year of birth
for a lady is 9+5 = 14 = 5 . Therefore the KUA number for he lady is 5.
Essentially, if your Kua number falls under the group of 1,3 , 4 and 9 you are deemed to be an East group
person with your auspicious directions and sectors in the East, Southeast, South and North while that of 2, 5, 6,
7, 8 are deemed West group people and their auspicious directions are that of Southwest, West, Northwest
