Wardrobes  are personal and may define one’s character and express their personality.  Wearing the right designs for you that brings you joy can improve your personal happiness, well-being and personal success.

A fun and easy way for designing a wardrobe aligns with nature’s elements of; fire, earth, metal, water and wood.  Nature can support your personal growth and help you reach your potential.

What 5 element are you? Fire, Earth, Metal, Water or Wood

Ones primary element can be determined through gender and birth date called the Kua Number.  Kua means life area and this number differs from one’s Chinese astrological number.  The concept comes from Chinese cosmology, the branch of astronomy that deals with the general structure and evolution of the universe. Chinese Astrology attempts to interpret the influence of the heavenly bodies on human affairs.

Potential and life experiences can be influenced by ones Kua number, therefore personal Kua number enhancements can be applied to improve  ones lifestyle, health and well-being. Once knowing it one will know what primary element they are, what colors are best for them, what symbols and directions support them and which ones aren’t.

I consider Kua Numbers for personal enhancements in fashion and decor that is intimate to my needs.

Two Steps to Calculate your Kua Number:

Step 1:

Add the last two digits of your birth year.  Keeping adding until you reach a single digit.  For example:  if your year of birth is 1978, add the last two digits, ie., 7 + 8 =’s 15, which is a double-digit number. Therefore add the two digits, 1 + 5 =’s 6.

Step 2 for Females:

Add 5 to the single digit obtained in previous step. If the result is a double-digit, add the digits to get a single digit number.  For example:  6 +5 =’s 11, which is a double-digit number.  Therefore add the two digits, 1 +1 =’s 2.

Step 2 for Males:

Subtract the single digit obtained in the first step from 10. The resulting single digit number will be the Kua Number for males.  For example:  10 – 6  =’s 4.
