The origin of Chinese numerology dates back to 4000 years near the banks of yellow river (Huang Ho).

The story goes that the first of the five mythical emperors of China, Wu of Hsai was working on the Yellow River to find a way to prevent the flooding that regularly devastated the communities along the river. During the course of this work Wu discovered a tortoise shell which had a fascinating 3x3 magic square on its back. This magic square on the tortoiseís back was called the Lo Shu Grid.

What makes the Lo Shu Grid so special is that every row, column and diagonal in the grid adds up to the number 15. Wu solved the flooding problem and gained fame for evolving the magic system of Lo shu Grid.

The Lo Shu Grid Chinese Numerology reading is given by placing the numbers in Date of Birth inside the Lo Shu Grid. All 1ís are placed inside the bottom left square of the Grid. 2ís in to the top right box, 3ís in to the middle left box etc. If a personís date of birth has 0ís it should be ignored.

Example: Consider a person named Roshan Kumar born on 25 oct 1984.

Lo Shu Grid for date of Birth 25-10-1984 will be as below 

4 9 2
  5  
8 111  

In the above chart 0 is omitted as it has no place in the grid. Three 1ís are placed in to the bottom middle box. Other numbers have taken their box one each.

A good personality reading can also be given by converting the letters of our names in to numbers and placing these numbers in to the Lo shu Grid.

Example: R O S H A N K U M A R 9 6 1 8 1 5 2 3 4 1 9

Number seven alone is missing in his name number. Numbers in his name chart can be drawn as shown below.

Impact of missing Numbers:

Numbers that are completely missing from the chart indicate lessons that the person has to learn in this life time. The above person has missing 7 in his name and date of birth. This indicates that he lacks interest in spiritual matters. They find it hard to be self-sufficient and dislike being left on their own.
