In Feng Shui, the 8-Mansion Theory determines
our 4 favourable and 4 unfavourable directions. They are
our personalized good directions which could be used to
tap auspicious energy into our lives. Generally, there are
two groups of people: East Group People have kua numbers
1,3,4,9; while West Group People have kua numbers 2,6,7,8.
The calculation of kua number is based on the year you were
born in, according to Chinese Solar Calendar. The table
below is a consolidation of kua number based on solar year
system. The Chinese Solar Calendar is based on the revolution
of earth around the sun. And the start of the year is determined
by the transition of Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox,
in which the hour, minute and second is taken into consideration.
Spring could start either on 3rd, 4th or 5th of Feb depending
on the year. It is worth taking note that automated kua
calculators available in the market usually do not consider
this important point.
For example, if you are a female born on
5 Feb 1972 at time 00:35, your kua number according to the
table yields 4. Similarly if you are a male born, say on
4 Feb 1978 at time14:00, your kua number is 4.
With your kua number, you
can choose to benefit yourself by tapping your personal energy
following those auspicious directions in your homes (big tai chi),
smaller rooms (small tai chi), offices or business premises (work
place). Check the tables below for your four good directions.

There are a few essential elements
that are important in our house or any premises to follow
this formula. Those considered essential include:
1. Maindoor - the maindoor must be opened to face ones best
direction, especially the breadwinners. This direction can
be any of the four best directions according to ones kua
number, but the best is if the maindoor is facing the sheng
chi direction. The maindoor is the mouth of the house and
should be related to riches and wealth and overall luck.
If it is a company maindoor, it must face the boss' auspicious
2. The bedroom location - Everyone should select a room
that is located in an auspicious sector in a house. For
example if one is an east person, he should choose an east
room. A good location for a bedroom is the nien yen location
because bedroom is related to love and relationship.
3. The bed direction - One should have his headboard pointing
to his good directions. This means that when he is sleeping,
his top of the head is pointing towards his good direction,
and not his feet. A good direction to face is the nien yen
direction related to love and relationship.
4. The stove facing direction - The stove facing direction
(when one is cooking his back is known as the facing direction)
is important because fire mouth determines ones wealth generation.
This fire mouth must always face a good direction, especially
the sheng chi.
5. The workdesk or study table - The workdesk should face
ones good directions to obtain good energy at work and succeed.
If one faces his bad directions, it is hard for him to succeed.
The best being his sheng chi direction. For those who are
studying, the best is to have one facing his fu wei direction
for education luck.
6. The facing direction when dining - Always ensure one
is always facing his tien yi direction when eating his meals.
This is to ensure he is always in good health and tip top
7. The facing direction of cashier for business - The cashier
must always be located in good flying star combination sector
and facing ones best direction.
Not everyone can have all the important positions and directions
that are desirable to them. If they are not, the ultimate cure
to prevent bad luck due to wrong orientations is the Magic
Loshu. The dragon tortoise with bagua luoshu is best to be
placed in vicinities where:
1. The maindoor, stove, headboard of bed, cashiers, workdesk
and important areas are not facing a favorable direction
according to ones kua number. For example if a person's
best direction is east, but his maindoor is facing west,
then place this noble tortoise in the vicinity of the door.
2. The important areas which you desire to use often such
as living room, dining room or bedroom are location in location
directions where they are not desirable to one's kua number.
For example, if a person's best direction is east, but he
desires to use the living room often which is located in
the west, he can continue to do so without bad luck by placing
this noble tortoise in that living room.
Please take note that if ones good locations
are located with either the kitchen (suppresses good luck) and the
toilet (drain away good luck), you should hang the 5
Rods Pagoda Windchime in the kitchen or toilet.
