Using Chinese numerology to choose a condo unit

by Cristina


Can Chinese numerology help us? We are buying a new condo and can't decide which unit to take. We're considering the unit number...the only units available are 213,313,314 and 414.

At first we wanted the 314. It has 2 bedrooms and its just fine for our family.

Then we changed our mind to take the 414 because it has a big den and a loft.

But after reading all the articles regarding the fourth floor (being bad luck/death) we might as well just take the 314.

We are still not sure about it because it still has a number 4. But after adding all the numbers, they sum up to 8 which in Chinese is really a good number.

The real address of the condominium is 1315. The unit is facing the west side and its just 4 blocks away from the naval base.

What do you think of it??? Hope you could help me and my husband decide which unit to take.

Thank you so much,

Cristina









Victoria's Answer:

Hi Cristina,

Thanks for your question. And congratulations on your upcoming move! Hope that your new home is perfect for you and your family.

To best help you decide, I consulted with our friend Ding. Ding is an expert in I-Ching, Chinese Astrology and Chinese names. He studied Chinese characters, names, Feng Shui, Bazi and other Chinese metaphysics for about 10 years now.

Not to mention that Ding is also the great mind behind Great-Chinese-Names.com.

Here is what Ding says about your condo unit:


Hi Cristina,

The numerology system that I use is a very ancient one. It is quite a complicated system. It is called the yijing plum blossom calculation method.

Firstly, yijing numerology is a calculation system. It is not related to how the number sounds. For example, how the number '4' sounds like 'dead' in some languages is not a concern to yijing numerology. So, from yijing's perspective, the number 4 is not necessarily bad luck.


Now, let us look at each unit from yijing's numerology analysis.

Unit 213: This unit is more suitable for a male buyer. Still, the fengshui in this unit is not really good. The owner of the house will face difficulties in their career.

Unit 313: This unit is slightly better than unit 213. But watch out for any hidden bugs, termites or rodents in the unit. Or perhaps in the future, there is a possibility of this problem. Be careful also about sickness that is related to head, throat, insomnia. The fengshui is not quite good.

Unit 314: Not a harmonious unit for the occupants. May have regular quarrels. Could also attract a lawsuit. Might get broken into or the owners may be robbed.

Unit 414: Among all the units, this one is the best. Good luck, wealth and good career opportunities come to the owners. However, you have to be determined in completing your tasks to see good results. Just be cautioned though: Do not be carried away with one's success. Perform more charity and donation, and hope nothing in return for the good deeds. Stay humble even when success is at hand.

If you go with unit 414, it is best to move in only in the winter months. The southwest sector of the unit is a good area for living area. Maximize the use of this sector. It can be your dining area or a study or a home office.

Good luck to you.

Which Condo Unit Number is the most fortunate?

What will be the best unit number?

What will be the best unit number?

I'm looking at units in 2 possible condominiums. The first one is built already. The following unit numbers are available:

  • 1202
  • 1106
  • 701
The second one is a condo that will be built by 2014.

I can choose any floor from 2-29, but I'm limited to the unit type. So the unit number must end in either 06 or 07.

Unit numbers 507, 707, 1106, 1206, 1506, 1707, 1706, 1807 and 1806 are all taken.

What will be the best unit number?

Thanks.





Victoria's Answer:

Ni hao,

Much appreciation for your interest in Chinese culture and our website.

For your questions, I consulted with our friend Ding. Ding is an expert in I-Ching, Chinese Astrology and Chinese names. Plus, he studied Chinese characters, names, Feng Shui, Bazi and other Chinese metaphysics for about 10 years now.

Here is what Ding says about the two possible condo units:


Hi,


For the first part of your question on those completed units:

Overall, unit 1202 is the best based on the energy in 2011. Will bring good fortune to the owner. But look after your liver and manage your work stress.

For the second part of your question, about the condo built for 2014, the seventh floor is good. Unfortunately, though, unit 706 is not a favorable one according to my calculations.

Therefore, the unit 1202 in the first building is your best choice.

Good luck.

Lucky condo numbers

by Maricel
(Q.C., Philippines)

Hoping for your help in choosing the best condo unit # for us. Our choices are 418, 408 that are both facing sunrise & 618 that faces sunset.

We're about to choose 408.

However upon reading that 4 is an unlucky number, we hesitated. I must mention however we currently have a condo already unit numbered 4B8 that is contrarily very lucky on us.

Looking for a positive reply.

Thank you!


Ding's Answer:

418 is a good unit.

It will be even better if you sign the deal in the months of September and October.

408 is not a good unit for now.

The owners will not have smooth sailing in the next three years (2013-2015).

Good luck.

Lucky Condo Apartment Number

I am planning to buy a condo in building # 168 and the apartment # is 705. Are these good numbers?



Ding's Answer:

#168 is a good one.

Not because of how it sounds in Cantonese or any language.
Based on Yijing numerology, I have calculated that this unit is a good one.

Good luck.

Lucky condo unit numbers

by Cristina Velasco

A favorable condo unit?

A favorable condo unit?

The only condo units left that we can choose are either 314 or 313 and another one - 107 (but this one is still 50/50 chance that we will get it). Ding's readings for 313 and 314 are not quite good. Is there any way to counter the not so good fengshui in case we take any of them?

Thanks for Ding's reply on my earlier question.

Cristina



Victoria's Answer:

Hi Cristina,

Thanks for your follow up question and your interest in Chinese numerology.

I passed your note onto Ding, the founder of Great-Chinese-Names.com.

Here is what Ding says about unit 107:


Cristina,

Unit 107 should also be avoided. The occupants in this unit will have many obstacles in their lives. Many undertakings will not be smooth. Sort of moving backwards instead of progressing. Not a favorable unit for females too.

Unless the female living in this unit is a retiree. Or within the retirement age. This unit will then be ok for her.

Hope you can look for other units.

Is my New Condo #405 Auspicious?

by Sheryl
(Ontario)

My new condo is facing the northeast direction. It has lots of windows. The kitchen has a window and its aligned to the main door. My pakua is 2. Am I living in an auspicious condo unit?

Any suggestions that you may have for further improvements are appreciated.




Ding's Answer:

Sheryl, thanks for your question.

If one can see the kitchen's window from the main door, then it will be inauspicious. The energy will flow in through the main door and straight out the kitchen's window.

Depending on where the kitchen faces, it will affect certain areas of your life.

You can put some big leafed plants near the kitchen's entrance (between the kitchen's window and main door).

You can set up a standing partition. Or install a kitchen door.

This will block of seeing the kitchen's window from the main door.

Good luck.

Which condominium unit number and floor will I choose?

by Lucita Bautista Mendoza
(Makati City, Philippines)


Please help me in choosing the best and lucky number for a condominium unit. I want a unit with a view wherein you could see your outside environment. The condominium is facing the small creek and you could see the moving cars going to north and south. The building is also facing the railroad wherein you could hear the sound of a train which is okay with me and for my kids, they love to watch the train.

I want a place that is happy outside, compared to others who want a very quiet place. I am a bit scared if I do not see people outside.

I am also concerned about the number which I will choose. Please help me in choosing the floor and number of unit.

By the way the building is a twin tower, I am choosing the tower 1 and turn over on July 2013 it is L-shaped and the small line of the letter L at the bottom is fronting the road, rail-road the the small creek. the tower 1 is the reversed of L-shaped, when the 2 towers finished it will become a letter U-shaped. The available units are 16th floor with unit number 34, you could read it 1634, the next are 2034 (20th flr.), 2134, 1032, 1633, 833, 1126, 1626.

I am a married person with 3 children, me and my husband are working in Makati Metro Manila, this will be a second home for us, because we normally go back to our province during weekends.

I hope you could help us choose the best and lucky number for us.

Thank you so much.



Ding's Answer:

Hi Lucita,

Thanks for your question.

What I picked up from your message is you want a happy place.

The number best suited for this is 1626.
This is a good number that will bring you much happiness.

Good luck.

House number meaning

by Robert
(Philippines)

What does our house number mean in Chinese numerology? Our house number is one hundred and eighty three (183). - Question from Robert in the Philippines


Ding's Answer:

Robert,

That's a good number for a house.
The people living in that house have a good sense of camaraderie.
You have close family ties. People look out for each other.
There is a sense of belonging.

It's a good number.
Living in this house, sometimes you will have some revolutionary ideas popping into your mind.
If you study and research more on those ideas, you might come up with something great.
Make a plan, implement the ideas, and you will see favourable results.

Good luck.

Chinese lucky number for a condo unit

by Ms. Tan

I hope that unit 0818 will help me find my true love.

I hope that unit 0818 will help me find my true love.

I'm very particular with feng shui and lucky numbers. I've just transferred recently from condo unit GRT3-0527 to GRT3-0818. Do you think I made the right decision? What can you say about the numbers.

Also, if you could suggest something to place as lucky charm for my condo unit.

This is my first time to ask a question. Thanks in advance.

Ms. Tan





Victoria's Answer:

Ni hao Ms. Tan,

Much appreciation for your question and your interest in our website!

Congratulations on your new condo unit! Hope that your new home exceeds your highest expectation.

When I looked at your new unit number, my first impression is that it is very lucky. The pronunciation for 8 is close to "发"(fa), which means good fortune. 8 is the luckiest of the Chinese lucky numbers.

But to be sure, I consulted with our friend Ding. Ding is an expert in I-Ching, Chinese Astrology and Chinese names. He studied Chinese characters, names, Feng Shui, Bazi and other Chinese metaphysics for about 10 years now.

Here is what Ding says about your new condo unit:


Ms. Tan,

Congratulations on moving to a new unit.

Without much information provided, I can only use the Plum Blossom Yijing Calculation method. This method allows me to 'see' a little.

And from what I 'see', your growing family is the main reason for your move. Perhaps you have some new addition in your family members. Or someone returning from some place to live with you.

Anyway, to answer your question on which unit is better:

Unit 0527 looks like a favorable home. But it's unable to cater to your need for space. So, don't feel regretful.

Unit 0818 will bring about some positive changes in your life:
  • You may see changes in the the improvement of family relationship.
  • You may see improvement in your business or career.
  • For younger people, they may see good school results.

Looks like you have made a good choice picking unit 0818.

For the Chinese lunar year of Tiger (4 Feb 2010 to 3 Feb 2011), this is what you can place in your home:

(This is for enhancing the luck further mentioned above.)
For both the Western and Northern parts of your home, place plants that grow in water.

Put them in a clear glass vase filled with water. The Epipremnum aureum is one such good plant that grows well in water.

Best of luck.

Ding
Author of Great Chinese Names




For your information, Epipremnum aureum is also known as Golden Pothos, Devil's Ivy, Silver Vine, Money Plant, or Solomon Islands' Ivy:

PothosQuinn Dombrowski



Best of all, this is one of the easiest houseplants to care for...even if you don't have a “green thumb.”

Bamboo (Dracena Sanderiana) is also lucky and can grow in a vase of water:

Any more questions, just feel free to contact me.

Best regards,

Victoria



More from Ms. Tan:

Thanks so much for the input. I am so happy to hear from you. Also, send my regards and “thank you” to Sir Ding.

Yes, I transferred to unit 0818 from unit 0527 to add some space for visitors and the breath of fresh air.

I bought the condo unit for me and my mom only. But it might serve as rest house for my family in the future if we transfer to a bigger house.

I hope that unit 0818 will help me find my true love.

Any Feng shui tips for my East facing condo unit?

by Allie
(San Diego, CA)

...Any tips for me in the temporary unit as it is facing East?

...Any tips for me in the temporary unit as it is facing East?

I am in the process of moving and it will be again temporary until my unit is vacant. So I am getting ready to move into unit 1513 and then will be moving into unit 2418. I have read two ways, one states that I should include the building address and the other states more focus on the unit number?

I think that the unit number would be more relevant. Although I'm not sure.

I am waiting on unit 2418 as it faces west and my Kua number is 7. Plus it is on a higher level, better view, bigger, etc. Just wanted to know if I do in fact go by the unit number? And if so, any tips for me in the temporary unit as it is facing East (which is not the best for me being Kua number 7)?

Thank you in advance for your time.

Best Regards,
Allie





Victoria's Answer:

Hi Allie,

Much appreciation for your interest in Chinese culture and our website.

For your questions, I consulted with our friend Ding. Ding is an expert in I-Ching, Chinese Astrology and Chinese names. Plus, he studied Chinese characters, names, Feng Shui, Bazi and other Chinese metaphysics for about 10 years now.

Here is what Ding says about your new condo unit:


Hi Allie,

The unit number is not really important in the study of Feng Shui. However, those who study numerology may tell you otherwise. It depends on which ideology you wish to follow.

Here, I am looking from the Feng Shui perspective.

Even though your temporary unit 1513 is facing East, there are still good areas in the house that you can make full use of.

The good areas are located in these sectors:

  1. North West - your Sheng Qi or Life Generating sector.
    You can have your home office desk in this sector. This will help improving your career advancement and financial endeavors.


  2. South West - your Tian Yi or Heavenly Doctor sector.
    If possible, have your bedroom located in a room in this sector. Have your bed (headboard) point to south west too. This means the headboard or your head in sleeping position pointing to this direction. This sector helps to improve health and therefore very suitable as a bedroom.

  3.  
  4. North East - your Yan Nian or Longevity sector.
    Yan Nian sector helps in building good relationship with the people around you. As explained in #1 and #2, you can have either your work desk or bed in this sector.

  5.  
  6. West - your Fu Wei or Stability sector.
    The energy in this sector helps to calm and relax you. Thus, it provides mental clarity for making decisions. Or to unwind after a stressful day. It is good to have the family, living room or dining place in this sector. If you do meditation, this is also a good sector for your practice.




  7. There you have it. Out of the eight major directions, you really do have half of the unit that is good for you. Don't let the other half that is bad worry you too much. For your knowledge, the other four sectors to avoid are:
     
  8. Huo Hai or Mishaps in the North

  9.  
  10. Wu Gui or Five Ghosts in the South

  11.  
  12. Liu Sha or Six Killings in the South East

  13.  
  14. Jue Ming or Life Endangering in the East

  15.  

Avoid having bedrooms, workspace or living areas in the above sectors. They are more suitable as low traffic areas such as kitchens, storerooms and bathrooms. Having said that, since they made up of half the unit, sometimes it is unavoidable to use them as a bedroom. Just make sure your headboard points to the favorable directions.
 
Feng Shui is a complicated system much like an onion. There are many layers. What I have shown you is just the most basic but very practical method called the Eight Mansions. Though simple, it works wonders. Most Feng Shui practitioners set these eight sectors in order first before they look at other things in more details. By getting the rooms, tables and beds in the right sectors, you have won half the battle already.
