Chinese numerology: the Lo Shu Grid


The exact origins of modern Numerology are unknown. However numerologists believe the the old China has played a major role in the history of Numerology. Today Numerology still plays an important role in the Chinese culture. For many Chinese people believe in the system of ‘lucky numbers’ (e.g.: 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 13) and ‘unlucky numbers’ (4, 5, 6, and 7). The meaning of numbers in Chinese numerology is founded on the ‘number name sound’ – which can be related to auspicious and inauspicious words.

The so-called ‘Lo Shu Grid’ (see above) provides an important foundation in Chinese numerology. The ‘Lo Shu Grid’ is often combined with the 5 elements of Chinese astrology (wood – fire – earth – metal – water), and some basic principles provided by Taoisme and Feng Shui – an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics which utilizes the Laws of heaven (provided by astronomy) and the laws of earth (provided by geography).
