Welcome back!  In our second lesson of Ba Gua Feng Shui, we shall learn how to find out your true personal Gua and the lucky directions of yours accordingly.  After this lesson you would be able to tell which direction is good for you so as to maximize the use of these directions in daily life.

Actually according to authentic Chinese Ba Gua Feng Shui, people born in different years could be categorized into 8 types, each with a matching Ming Gua (命卦).  In the image below you can see eight Guas surrounding the Tai Chi (太極) logo.  These are the Ming Guas I have been talking about.

Feng Shui Ba Gua

If you have read other Ba Gua Feng Shui books before, you may have came across a term “Gua Number” or “Kua Number”.  What does it mean?  The 1 to 9 Gua Number that you are used to see in other Feng Shui books are a modified version that originated from the Chinese Ba Gua Feng Shui theories.  I would not say the 1 to 9 Gua Number system is incorrect but it is certainly not the authentic Ba Gua Feng Shui practised by Chinese Feng Shui masters.  If you have chance to ask any Feng Shui master in China, Taiwan or Hong Kong, he/she would tell you that there are only 8 Ming Guas.

At the end of this article, I shall also tell you how to choose the luckiest couch for you.  Do you know the color and shape of a couch affects the Feng Shui of your flat?  Read on to know more!

If you map out the eight directions of the eight Ming Guas and superimpose one another , you would find out an interesting fact.  There are four Ming Guas that always have Northeast, Southwest, West and Northwest as lucky directions, while the remaining four Ming Guas always have these directions as unlucky ones.  Why so?

We call the former four Ming Guas as the four “Western Ming Guas” (東四命) and the latter four Ming Guas as the four “Eastern Ming Guas” (西四命).  For Western Ming Guas, Northeast, Southwest, West and Northwest are always good directions.  For Eastern Ming Guas, Northeast, Southwest, West and Northwest are always bad directions.  In other words, Qian, Gen, Kun and Dui are Western Ming Guas while Kan, Zhen, Xun and Li are Eastern Ming Guas.

Western Group Ming Guas:

  • Qian
  • Gen
  • Kun
  • Dui

Eastern Group Ming Guas:

  • Kan
  • Zhen
  • Xun
  • Li

By utilizing the similarity of the lucky and unlucky directions in the same group (Eastern or Western), we could plan the interior Feng Shui and maximize the good effects.  You will learn this useful strategy below.
