For example: 1977 (7+7=14, and 1+4=5. For a woman, add that to 5 (5+5=10). Your Kua Number is 1. For a man (10-5=5, Your Kua Number is 2 (Kua Number 5 becomes 2 for Men and 8 for Women.

Note: For personalized Feng Shui, use the element associated with your Kua number not your astrology element to begin adding your personal element to your surroundings along with the element that nourishes or "creates" it. For example, if you are a 3 or 4 Kua Number your personal element is Wood therefore you need Wood element colors and items in your home as well as Water element since Water nourishes Wood. (see Five Elements Creation Cycle) Also be sure to represent each of the other Five Elements to balance your space. An overabundance of an element is just as detrimental to a space as a deficiency.
