Question: About house numbers--- out of all #'s I have the '4' !! What can be done to help my house, entrance, I can't move.

I am pleased to inform you that contrary to what many people think under the Chinese numerology, No. 4 is an auspicous number.

Let me explain:-

Although the Cantonese (one of the Chinese dialects) say that no. 4 stands for " say " or die, Chinese Numerology and even the Jews Numerology all indicate that No. Four is auspicious.

For example, the " powerful " Flying Star theory analyses number 1 to 9 either on it's own or a combination of these numbers and no. 4 by itself is always considered an auspcious number or even in combination with other good numbers like 1, 8 or 6.

The number that are not auspicious are instead no. 3, 5 or 2 and if it is not the period 7, then no. 7.

Therefore, it is indeed a blessing in disguise that your number 4 or 4444 are not what it seems.

I hope now that you do not regret having 4 or 44 or 444's etc.!

More!

There is a house number theory which is used by some Hong Kong Master (especially those who had mastered the Flying Star or Xuan Kong plus the Shapes and Forms) regarding the use of the Flying Star (9 lu shu number) to give a general explanation of the house based on the house number. This is specially true for flats because not every unit with a certain flying star chart will have the same feng shui.

As such the house number was used to give this additional interpretation of the feng shui of the the various units in the same estate etc. Especially if for the unit number, a 81 interpretation of the various 9 x 9 luo shu numbers can be used to give a general description of auspicious or inauspicious aspect of the house.

Under this simple calculation, every number can be related to the luo shu square by apply the period of the house. Eg. if the house is in period 7 (1984-2003), you can do a quick calculation which for the number 4 will relate to 1. This goes the same even for a large number. This will give the luo shu square. However, as year of the house was not given, there is no way I can tell if it is auspicious or not.

However, this is an additional Feng Shui calculation method of viewing and relating to a house number. However, as it only able to tell generally if the house number is generally auspicious or not. There are only a few Chinese Books documented by several Feng Shui masters in Hong Kong (esp. those relating to Xuan Kong Ji Shu).
