In many ancient cultures, the natural world and the four directions of north, south, east, and west were very important. In the same way, the directions on a magnetic compass have meaning in feng shui and can be used in many different ways.
For example, the directions point to different parts of the bagua. One more way we use the directions is to use them in a way that helps and supports your personal feng shui kua number. In the traditional and classical schools of feng shui, practitioners often use your birth information and the directions of the compass to tell you how to change and place things in your home.
Your personal feng shui kua number can tell you which magnetic direction is best for you to face when you sleep, work at your desk, and even with whom you get along best. It can also tell you the best directions to face to bring in more money and success, to feel healthier, to find love, and to grow as a person.
You can first determine your personal feng shui kua number. This number is derived from your birthdate to assign you a number associated with a direction. Once you have determined your own feng shui kua number, you can consult the table below to determine your auspicious directions.
How Each Direction Impacts You
生氣 (Sheng Chi) Life Generating
Your Prosperity direction gives you strong growth and advancement in life. It is also called “growth Chi” or “energy that moves upward.” It can help you move up in your job, start your own business, or even increase your chances of getting pregnant.
If you use this direction correctly, you will be more active in many parts of your life, such as making more money, having higher goals, and being more motivated at work. Young people who want to get ahead in life and work should go in this direction because it will help them do both.
天醫 (Tien Yi) Heavenly Doctor
Your Health direction, whose name means “heavenly doctor,” has a direct effect on your health and vitality and an indirect effect on your wealth. This direction is very helpful for older people and people who are sick.
Using this direction correctly will keep your mind and body healthy. You may also have less trouble, especially if something unexpected happens that costs you money.
延年 (Yan Nien) Longevity
Your love, relationships, and marriage are all connected to your Harmony direction, which means “harmony” and “longevity” in English. This should be the most important thing for people looking for a partner to do.
If you follow this direction, your marriage and love life will be stable. Your relationships with friends and family will get better, and you might meet new people who can help you in your personal and professional life.
伏位 (Fu Wei) Stability
Your Stability direction helps you grow as a person and gives you a calm life. If you use this direction correctly, it will get rid of the ripples that keep you from focusing on your daily life. This will give you more time and energy to look for ways to make things better.
禍害 (Huo Hai) Mishaps
Your Obstacles direction, which means “mishaps” and “troubles” in English, is linked to a loss of energy and motivation. Worse, it makes you tired and very lazy, which makes you useless at work and at home. The person may be afraid to take on responsibilities and may always feel weak and sick.
五鬼 (Wu Guay) Five Ghosts
Your Five Ghosts direction is linked to chaos and violence. This direction can sometimes do more damage than the Total Loss direction. It can make you too competitive, aggressive, and fierce, which can lead to problems with your family, work, and other people. Worse, it could put you in situations where you have to deal with lawsuits and bloody events (surgeries, accidents, and other situations that draw blood).
六煞 (Liu Xa) Six Killings
A negative mind is linked to your Six Killings direction. This path can hurt your marriage, your career, and the way you get along with other people. At the same time, it can keep you from sleeping and make you feel angry or uninterested. Worse, it could cause you to drink too much and gamble too much.
絕命 (Jue Min) LifeThreatening
Your Total Loss of direction, which literally means “ending life,” is about you killing yourself. It can cause depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses that can hurt your health in a big way. People also say that this direction is bad for a person’s ability to have children.
Usage & Application
Your Ideal Sleeping Position
Your bed and bedroom symbolize you, making it one of the most important feng shui spaces to take care of.
After determining your own feng shui kua number, you can refer to the chart to determine the optimal bed direction for you. This indicates the direction in which the top of your head is pointed. According to your kua number, all four listed directions will be advantageous. Favorable directions would be those that promote your well-being and personal development. Even if the money and success direction may be overly stimulating, the others are also acceptable.
Your Ideal Desk Position
According to feng shui, your workstation represents and influences your career, money, and life path. Using the information provided by your unique kua number, you can select a favorable and supporting direction to face when working at your workstation. The direction associated with wealth and prosperity is definitely a fortunate one for desks to face. In addition, enhancing your health will bring you good fortune and success. Personal development may lead to excessive relaxation and procrastination if you have difficulty concentrating, making it the least desired option at the desk.
If you can move your office workstation to a more favorable position, this indicates that luck is already on your side. If you’re a home entrepreneur, you should think about turning it to your advantage and putting yourself in one of your lucky positions.
And keep in mind that relocating to one of your lucky positions does not guarantee that you will become wealthy or win the jackpot right away. It simply means that everything you are doing will go more smoothly and with less impediments to achieving your goals in life.
