How To Find Your Lucky Number Using Chinese Numerology

LIC

Chinese numerology is significantly different from Western numerology. Certain numbers are considered auspicious and lucky while others are avoided and believed to bring bad luck.

Nevertheless, there’s a technique that you can use to find out your personal lucky number using Chinese numerology. It only requires the knowledge of one’s birth year and gender.

How to find your lucky number using Chinese numerology

Start by writing down your year of birth on a piece of paper. Now add the last two digits. If you get a double digit, add those numbers again until you get a single digit. For example, if you were born in 1997, add 9 + 7 = 16. And then 1 + 6 = 5.

Next, if you are a male, subtract this number from 10. And if you are a female, add the number 5 to this. In the latter case, if you get a double-digit number, reduce it to a single digit as shown above. For example, if you are male and born in 1997, your lucky number is 10 – 5 = 5. But if you are female, your lucky number will be 5 + 5 = 10, further reduced to 1 + 0 = 1.

The number three (三 Sān) represents “many” and “stability” in Chinese numerology. And because it sounds similar to the word for “birth,” number 3 is considered lucky for new beginnings. Using this number will bring you growth and abundance. It’s also associated with the energy of regeneration. Just avoid using it for partnerships and gifts as it can cause a “parting of ways.”

Chinese lucky number 4

The number four (四 Sì) is considered an unlucky and bad number in Chinese culture because it sounds similar to the word for “death.” It’s believed to bring destruction and doom to an individual. This is why, if your personal number according to Chinese numerology is a 4, it’s best to avoid it as much as possible. Although, in Western numerology, 4 is actually a pretty good number to have and represents stability and structure.

The number nine (九 Jiǔ) also represents “everlasting” and “longevity” in Chinese numerology. It’s one of the recognized lucky numbers since ancient times and is the reason why the imperial robes had nine dragons on them and the official system was divided into nine ranks. In the modern day, couples like to send each other 9 or 99 roses on Valentine’s Day to make their bond everlasting. Using 9 or repeating 9’s will bring you lasting good luck and prosperity according to Chinese numerology.
