A Multi Disciplinary Approach To Vaastu Energy

# NUMEROLOGY

### Feng Shui and Numerology

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice considering the environment to be a metaphor for everything that occurs in your life. Chinese numerology is based on homophonic principles. If a number sounds like a similar word that means something good, it is considered to be a good number. Numbers are either yin (even) or yang (odd). Yang numbers are considered more fortunate. A favourable address combines yin and yang; otherwise they seem to coincide with lifestyles that are heavily weighted toward one function e.g. possibly all work and no play. Zero represents nothing, perfection, completion and harmony.

### How to find the energy of your home

Adding the numbers (e.g. 28 = 2+8=10, then breaking multiple digit numbers down to one digit using the same method, i.e. 1+0=1 ... hence a 'ONE' energy

 ONE: In Chinese it sounds like the word for "honour" and is considered lucky. TWO: Sounds similar to "sure". Two stands for "doubling up" (as in"double your happiness") and for symmetry. It is considered a good number. THREE: Sounds like "growth" or "alive" and is therefore lucky. FOUR: Sounds like "death", very unlucky unless combined with a favourable number. FIVE: Popular because it signifies balance and when combined with 2, 4, 6, or 8 it’s extremely auspicious because each pair of numbers is balanced. SIX: Similar to "wealth”, extremely popular. SEVEN: Sounds like Cantonese for "sure" - a very fortunate or lucky number. EIGHT: Sounds like "multiply" and represents good luck - a fertile number too, so if you desire many sons, live in a house with eight in the address. NINE: One of the luckiest as it sounds like the word for "longevity" and "long life". TEN: It implies completeness. It’s not however particularly auspicious because it is a yin number.

### Lo Shu Square

The Lo Shu square is a 3 x 3 grid (nine sectors). What makes it so remarkable is that every vertical, diagonal and horizontal row adds up to 15. Zero is not represented because it is considered perfect and a symbol of completion. Numbers 1 through 9 are used in Chinese numerology. The number five is located in the center of the square.
