Calculating Your Kua Number

The first thing to do is to check your birth date against the Chinese calendar to make sure that you are using the correct Chinese year of birth. If you were born before the first week of February, you might have to use the previous year as your point of reference. Accuracy is of utmost importance when employing the rules of this formula, so make sure that you get your Chinese year of birth right before you begin the actual calculations. One single year makes a whole lot of difference in the calculation, and in turn, your personalized Feng Shui guidelines.
