Now, the Lo Shu grid is a 3 X 3 magic square in which the sum of the three numbers add up to 15 - row wise, column wise and diagonally. This is an ancient Chinese number grid that shows man’s interaction with the five elements such as Earth, Water, Fire, Wood and Metal. In Feng Shui Lo Shu all the elements that are needed for a prosperous life are analyzed on the basis of the date of birth.


Lucky directions



The Lo Shu grid is created on the basis of the date of birth of an individual. It helps to give a clear view of what destiny and life have in store for that individual. Lo Shu also gives remedial measures for the missing elements.



By entering the date of birth, the missing element and its effect on the concerned person is ascertained. Each digit in a person’s birth date is associated with the corresponding element and the missing factor is known. Remedial measures to counter the lack of elements for the person are also suggested by a Feng Shui LoShu reading. Each of the squares that make up the Lo Shu is the palace and the three numbers in each palace are the Stars. The positions of the Stars in the Lo Shu indicate those areas of life which may be affected.
