Life Gua: 

An individual, by virtue of his or her birth date, has a governing personal trigram, which is known as Life Gua or Kua number.

Calculation of Kua number for Male :

Add up all the 4 digits of your birth year and reduce to a single number and then subtract reduced single number from 11.

For eg: Male 19th August 1951

1 + 9 + 5 + 1 =16

1 + 6 = 7

11 – 7 = 4 will be the kua number

eg : Male 11th march 2010

2 + 0 + 1 + 0 = 3

11 – 3 = 8 will be the kua number


Calculation of Kua number for female:

Add up all the 4 digits of your birth year and reduce to a single number and then add 4 to reduce to single number.

For eg: Female 20th november 1966

2 + 2 = 4

4 + 4 = 8 will be the kua number

eg: Female 11th june 2012

2 + 0 + 1 + 2 = 5

4 + 5 = 9 will be the kua number
