Chinese astrology and magic numbers
Numbers give us a lot of information about who we really are, about our personality, our deepest wishes and the cause of our choices. Numbers can be observed in countless ways. For example they can be used as a great tool for oracles because they are simple but at the same time complex.

There's an Eastern philosophy quote, saying "One brings two..". In this small phrase hides the secret understanding of the importance of numbers and the role they play. It is obvious that without number One the sequence of numbers (2,3,4..infinite) cannot exist. In Chinese astrology, number One symbolizes the beginning of the masculine (Yang) energy as the first odd number.. This number greatly affects the Chinese signs of the Rat, the Rooster and the Pig by adding its magic to their lives. In Feng Shui it is associated with North directions. It is also a number for business matters.

Number two affects separately and in different ways, all Chinese signs. It is also associated with the concept of infinity. If we consider number One as the father of numbers, then number two is the Mother. In eastern philosophy, number two is the symbol of balance between Heaven and Earth. It also symbolizes the two Gods who created Chinese astrology. This great number affects directly the Chinese signs of the Ox, the Rabbit and the Pig (for these people number Two is a very lucky and important number). In Feng Shui practices, Two is associated with North-East directions. It is also a number of expansion.

This wonderful number gives a new meaning to the idea of numbers. We've all heard of the sixth sense which opens the gates to the spiritual and metaphysical world. In Chinese philosophy, number Six symbolizes longevity and the power from the stars. The six cosmic points are also worth mentioning. Chinese divide the day and the night into six parts each. Number Six is highly associated with the Chinese signs of the Snake and the Sheep. These people consider number Six as the beginning of all things and base their dreams and visions upon it. If we study some of the primary Feng Shui scriptures, we will easily conclude that number Six comes from South-West directions. It is also a number of sexual encounters.

This is the number of the perfect circle. Each moon phase lasts approximately seven days (and the four moon phases form a perfect circle). Number Seven is the number of abundance and fullfiled life. It is also associated with the feminine side. It is a product of both heaven and earth. Chinese celebrate their feasts and festivals for seven days or only on the seventh day because they believe that this way, the festival's success is assured. Number seven is associated with West directions in Feng Shui philosophy. It affects all Chinese signs but mostly the Horse and the Snake. These people are blessed with many talents and strong minds.

Number eight is simply an amazing number. If you rotate it 90 degrees it takes the shape of infinity. This is not a coinsidence. Number eight includes all the other numbers and is highly associated with the Yin Yang symbol. In Chinese philosophy we meet the -Eight Xian- who are enlightened and immortal human beings from the ancient times. Number eight is also a sign that -Everything Is Possible-! In Feng Shui practices, number Eight is associated with North-West directions. It generally affects the Chinese signs of the Rat and the Sheep allowing them to transform and be flexible.

Nine is the last number in the series of primary numbers (0-9). If we consider the rest of the numbers as a path to the Supreme Knowledge, then number Nine is the actual knowledge. In China, number Nine symbolizes the Heavenly Powers. Chinese farmers use to divide their land in nine segments. In order for people to understand the true meaning onf number Nine, they must have complete self control and self knowledge. Number is associated with all directions in Feng Shui philosophy but, in my opinion, mostly with western directions. I believe it derives from there and belongs there. Number Nine affects Monkey and Dog people above all giving them the opportunity to be powerful.
