Chinese Numerology has been around for at least 4,000 years and is based on the Lo Shu Square as seen on the back of the tortoise as legend goes. It is not based on the Lunar years and is easy to understand at a basic level.
There is no value or space for “zero” in Chinese astrology. For example if your birthdate has 0 in it then you can disregard it, as it has no significance. Only numbers from 1 till 9 are used while assigning the numbers in the Lo Shu grid and no person has a date of birth which shall fill all the nine squares of the Lo Shu grid. You just need your birth date, month and year for calculations. Every number is symbolic of certain human traits. Therefore, a person will possess the characteristics of the numbers that are present in their birth date and the repetition of the numbers in one square will add a different meaning to their characteristic.
The Lo Shu grid is as given below and the placement of the numbers in your birth date has to be done accordingly. All you have to do is to allocate the numerical digits in your birthdate to the respective squares. For example if the birth date of a person is 15-09-1987, you have to put it in the respective squares as below.
The person will possess qualities related to numbers 1 (twice), number 5, number 7, number 9 (twice). You can check the qualities from the table below.
The person can be identified as communicative yet reserved, as they will choose when they want to talk about an issue or whether they rather be left alone. Caring so as not to hurt anyone intentionally. Will prefer to learn through their own experiences and not just take everything for granted. They shall possess a critical view point so as to assess any situation from all angles
