However, there is one school of Feng Shui- the Eight Mansions School, which makes use of the house chart and individuals’ birth year – to determine which directions are lucky and which are unlucky for that individual. The eight directions are divided into a set of auspicious and inauspicious, according to the eight mansion school. In this blog post, we will learn how to calculate the Gua number which can give you insight into your lucky and unlucky directions.

## How to calculate Gua Number

Knowing your Gua number is simple calculations, you just need to know the year of your birth- the calculation is different if you are male (or associate yourself more with the male gender) and if you are a female.

Let us first calculate Gua number for a female:

• Add all the digits of the birth year – continue the addition, till you get a single-digit number. So if you are born in 1974, this will give 1+9+7+4 = 21 => 2+1 => 3.
• Add 4 to it, this will give us 3+ 4 = 7, so for the female born in the year 1974, the Gua number is 7.

Consider another female born in 2001,

``````Year of birth = 2008
Sum of all digits: 2 + 0 + 0 + 8 = 10 => 1+0 = 1
Add 4 to it: 1 + 4 = 5``````

So this female Gua number is 5.

Gua number for male:

• Add all the digits of the birth year- continue the process, until you get a single-digit number. So consider a male born in 1971, we will get 1+9+7+1 = 18 => 1+8 = 9.
• Next subtract it from 11, so we get 11-9 = 2. The man has Gua number 2.

Consider another male born in 2009,

``````Year of birth = 2009
Sum of all digits: 2 + 0 + 0 + 9 = 11 => 1 + 1 => 2
Subtract it from 11: 11 - 2 = 9 ``````

The male Gua number is 9.
