Choosing the best location for each room

Feng Shui attribution of the areas of the house

The Kua year's magic square can be used to determine the ideal positions of each room of a house according to the Kua of the year of construction of the place, but also to determine, in relation with it, the adjustments to to do with the Kua of birth of the head of the family. Indeed, the Kua number of the house takes precedence over the Kua of birth of the head of the family.

For example, if your building was built in 1967, the Kua of your apartment is number 6. You are a man born in 1972, so your birth Kua number is 1. Your wish is to prepare your home for the Feng Shui year 2020, that is to say the year Kua number 7.

When you move in, start by taking into consideration the specifics of the Kua magic square number 6 (year 1967) to determine the allocation of rooms in your apartment. Then, see what adjustments to make in each room so that any oppositions with your birth Kua are neutralized. Finally, adjust the objects, furniture and decoration of your home according to the positions of the flying stars of the Kua year 2020.

So, if we were to apply a prioritization graduation to the establishment of a good Feng Shui of a house:

  • Kua of the house: allocation of the rooms,
  • Kua of the head of the family: main outlines of the decoration (colors, type of furniture),
  • Kua of the current year: repositioning of the furniture, insulation of certain zones, reinforcement, activation or energy neutralization thanks to Feng Shui objects.

Below you will find a representation of the 9 magic squares of the flying stars each representing one of the Kua years, the central number of the star occupying the center of each square being always the same as the Kua year.

Then, thanks to the following table, you will be able to see which attribution to choose for the rooms of your house (if you move in) or how to adapt them.

In order to take advantage of this information, don't forget to check the Kua number of the year of construction of your home and that of your year of birth to see which squares to refer to:
