Kua number nine people are born under the year of the LI trigram with the element of fire. You are warm-hearted, full of energy and a very affectionate person. Compared with the rest of the kuas, you are known to be the most enlightened, and you are full of passion and a true spiritually-minded person. Kua number nine people are filled with the desire to seek the truth and share it with others. You are able to enlighten others to see the truth in everything you seek to show. You have the intelligence to uncover mysteries or resolve tough problems or situations. Kua number nine people tend to have little patience for anyone that does not match your standard. You like to seek fame and respect, thus making you a little vain. You need to control your temper as you can easily burst into flames and get out of control and end of earning a reputation for being hot-tempered.

LI is associated with the sun, brightness, lightning, heat and dryness. It represents firmness and an unyielding exterior but is weak and hollow on the inside. Its best direction is south.

Kua number nine people rush to conclusions. The quality of fire does, however, bring light to a given problem. These fire people are seen as direct and challenging, but also add sparkle to any occasion!

Your Four Personal BEST Directions and Areas in a Room or House

The Meaning of Your 8 Lifetime Directions

Based on the time of your birth, your Kua Number (also called your Gau number or the Pau Kau number) reveals the four best energy areas in your environment that support your continued growth in success and happiness.

The Kua number also warns you of the four energies in your space that sap your strength and cause problems. It’s best to stay out of these four most disturbing energy areas, which can increase your stress and keep you feeling down. These best and worst energy areas are specific to your birth date and stay with you for life.

As you are learning how to use your personal feng shui energies (by simply spending more time in the four good ones and avoiding the four stressful ones), consider putting a sticky note on your walls to show where all eight directions are.

For more attractive feng shui, order the feng shui posters (a sample is shown below) which are already labeled with your compass direction and your purpose for that area and the physical element needed in that area. These posters are very helpful when you hang them in spaces where you spend a lot of time (like an office, classroom, or conference room).

Once you have them up, you are able to choose one of your four best seats in the room, with just a quick glance at the walls. These posters will keep you in your best directions and help you avoid the four dangerous ones.

Your goal is to always sit and sleep in your best areas because you are then tapping into supportive energy which gives you great benefits, such as an edge in your creativity, more influence over other people and a boost to your health.

Note: It’s most important to FIRST create a strong feng shui organized home, bedroom or work environment (clutter-reduced and color-coded with appropriate objects) BEFORE you use the secrets revealed here. So, check that each of your nine bagua areas is color coded and has at least one appropriate element object


Your #1 Best Direction (which the Chinese call: Sheng Chi; or English translation: Life Chi Energy) is the East.

If you spend lots of time in the East it will bring you: personal wealth, great prosperity, success and respectability.

Your "Sheng Chi" is known as the Wealth and Success Area and Direction. This is the strongest, most supportive energy direction and location to spend time in. Try to enter your home through a door that is located in this area of your home.

Although you could certainly sleep with the top of your head pointing in this direction, it may be too much good energy and not calm enough to offer the most peaceful sleep. Use your health direction (below) instead.

You should face this direction when you are doing business with clients, customers or patients. Teachers and presenters should face this direction when lecturing, as well as, when conferencing with parents, students or clients.

When you work alone and need to concentrate, it’s very good to have your BACK toward this direction, because it props you up like a strong, comfy chair.

How To Decorate Your Wealth & Success Area and Direction: East

This fortunate area for you is in the east, which is energized by the color green; and tall, thin, upright, rectangular, wood objects and plants. The power number in this area is the number three.

Green wicker, wood and bamboo prosperity objects in groups of three would be a good way to make this energy stronger.

Since the water element nourishes wood, you can also use water objects (aquariums and water fountains), as well as water colors (dark blue and black) and glass prosperity objects that are curvy or wavy to build up the good energy here. Group objects into a set of three.

The metal element chops up wood and destroys this good energy, so please avoid the color white and keep shiny, metal things out of this area.

The color green matches the family energy of the east and so it is a strong east energizer. The poster below shows an image of an adult and a child (family) walking hand-in-hand outside in the green grass (wood element). Placing this image in the east will strengthen your personal feng shui direction for wealth and success. Then remember to spend lots of time near this poster.

Your Health Area and Direction: Southeast

Your 2nd best direction is Southeast and it brings good health and safety. Kua number nine people should activate this sector in order to cure illness and sickness. The source of Tien Yi brings good health and cures those who are suffering from illnesses. It would be good if it's located in the bedroom or dining hall. For your stove, where the source of this energy is coming from, pointing it to this direction will enhance the good cure effect.

Eat or work in this location when getting over an illness or to boost health. Use small plants and water in this location. Try to eat facing this direction to derive added healthful benefits from your food. Sleeping with your head pointing in this direction will also help you if you are trying to become healthier or recover from an injury.

Your Love Area and Direction: North

Your 3rd best direction is North and it is for relationships. Activating this sector will create harmonious and goodwill family relationships. Where there are quarrels or bickering, it would be best to activate this location resulting a more harmonious relationship.

A front door facing this direction will increase your prosperity! Kua number nine people should face north to improve their love life. Arguing with your loved ones? Try facing north while dining to improve the relationships in your home. Boost the north with double fish symbols and/or an aquarium to give your love life an extra shot in the arm! Bubbling fountains are perfect romance energizers for singles looking for love.

Your Growth Area and Direction: South

Your 4th best direction is South and it is represented by stability, clear thinking and a good life. It would be best for children to study and it creates kindness, respect and obedience.

In personal feng shui, the south is the growth and wisdom location and direction for kua number nine people. Work in this location to improve your standing, study in this direction, and do beneficial activities here, such as dining, to improve all areas of life. Are you trying to start over from any kind of setback? If so, this is the direction to face, or be in. Add plants in this location to help you get "growing" again! Plants will also help boost your writing prowess if you are an author.

How to Tap Into These Best Energy Areas

• Try to sleep, eat, work, or be in these areas of your home or room.

• Do as many activities as possible in these areas.

• Face these directions when working, eating, or sitting in your living room or at a meeting.

• Sleep with the top of your head pointed in these directions.

• Enter your home or office from a door that faces these directions.

Your Unfortunate Directions: Northeast, West, Southwest, Northwest


Your 4th Worst direction is the Northeast and this sector brings mishaps and accidents that lead to disaster. It will create arrogance, arguments, losses and losing money.

Try to avoid the northeast sector and/or direction. To not do so can cause arguments and legal problems or some kind of accident. You will receive blame for problems if you occupy this sector too much or if your front door faces this direction.


Your 3rd Worst direction is West and it is called the 5 Ghosts. This direction will bring fire, accidents, backstabbing and result in many quarrels within the household. It will lead to losses, confusion, sex scandals and burglary. To suppress the ill effect, it is best to locate your toilet or kitchen in this Wu Kuei sector.

The west and southwest can cause accidents, misfortune, and difficulties, such as lawsuits, burglary or fire. If your front door faces this direction, your family may leave you. If you have a business with a front door facing this direction, employees may leave. This is a good location for a kitchen or toilet.


Your 2nd Worst direction is Southwest and it causes legal problems, conflict or grievous harm to your family. Family members will constantly get ill and could lead to death. This location is best for a toilet or kitchen area to suppress its negative energy.


Your Worst direction is Northwest and it is called Total Loss. This direction will bring a demotion or job loss and if your main door faces this direction then you will lose your descendants or close family members. This sector can cause misfortune, bankruptcy, broken marriages, illness or death.

Kua number nine people must strenuously avoid the northwest because it is the VERY worst direction for you. A front door facing this direction can lead to a loss of children. Infertility can also arise, causing the family name to die out. Wealth will also be lost. This is a good location for a kitchen or a toilet.

Your Kua #9 Dress for Success Tip

As you are a Fire element, you may be best wearing your success direction palette of Fire colors, including red, strong pinks and bright purples, as well as bright orange. You like clothes that attract attention and even sexy outfits. Women feel good wearing tight tops and jeans to show off their curves. Fire people should choose outfits that draw attention to their chest and eyes.

Since Wood supports Fire, you may also benefit from wearing Wood colors including brown (tree bark or chocolate color, not pale or very light brown) and various shades of green (but not pastels), either as an accent or as the main color near your face. Wearing colors from these two families will also make you more appealing to others.

Following these special Kua number guidelines for dressing can make you feel more confident and help you be more successful out in the business world.
