A frequently asked Feng Shui question has to do with Feng Shui numbers, especially lucky numbers.
Lucky Feng Shui numbers
I just had a realtor client ask me about lucky numbers for writing a contract. She knew about the number 8 being lucky and wanted to know what other numbers would be lucky since the 8th of the month fell on a Saturday, which isn't a possibility for closing escrow. This is my response to her:
A number that really is a no-no in Feng Shui for the Asian community is the number 4. Some Asian cultures don't like 5. The number 9 has to do with completions and power, so most Asians like it. Since she is looking for a non-weekend date - and the number 9 would fall on a Sunday in September - the numbers 1 and 3 might be considered since they are considered to be good.
Any multiples that total 9 are considered good if a person really understands the symbology and power of numbers. Henceforth, the numbers 18, 27, 36, 45, etc. are powerful. The date of September 18 would be good.
When I'm doing things for myself or have observed the powerful things that "just seem to happen" in my life, their dates often total 9. The complete date is calculated and reduced to a common single digit.
For instance, I was on the Front Page of the San Jose Mercury New (above the fold) on April 3, 2000. Adding these together this is what we get. April, being the 4th month, would give us this equation (4 + 3 + 2 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 9).
If you are looking for a date in September, we'd start figuring it this way (September, 2012) 9 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 2 = 14 which reduces to 5. You would need to add 4 to make it 9. Since the number 4 isn't good, we'd have to go to the 13th (1 + 3 = 4) of the month or the 22nd (2 + 2 + 4). The number 22 is a very powerful number from many traditions, not just Asian. It is a "Master" number since it has double 2s. In this case, you may not want to wait that long for the closing date for the contract. That will need to be weighed into the mental equation, not the numeric equation.
I hope this helps both clarify and stimulate your curiosity. Numerology is a fascinating system.
