Thousands of years ago, Chinese astrology and numerology were also begun along with Chinese vastu shastra ‘Feng shui’. In the imprinted miraculous division (square) on the back of the giant (huge) tortoise appeared (come out/ come forth/ dawn) from the yellow river of china, numbers from 1 to 9 were printed. So, there is no any dissimilarity in between Chinese vastu shastra ‘Feng shui’ and numerology. Here, the importance of numbers are describing on the basis of numerology. One can find positive (auspicious) and negative (inauspicious) results through single digit obtained by adding his house numbers like- house no- 642= 6+4+2=12- 1+2=3.
In foreign (western) countries, auspicious and inauspicious results are estimated on the basis of single digit obtained by adding different numbers, but in eastern countries, these results are obtained through separate digit of any number. Yin and Yang are present in numbers. Even numbers are called Yin and odd numbers are known as Yang. Odd numbers are more affective than even one. However, it is very important to establish balance in both types of numbers. Thus, it does not matter that which type of house is, but odd and even numerals must be equal in house number, then only the house would be called as balanced.
Asian people believe numeral ‘8’ as beneficial (auspicious) and they believe that the pronunciation sound of this numeral is similar to the Chinese words used for prosperity. They believe numeral ‘2’ as beneficial, because it is pronounced easily. But, they believe numeral ‘4’ as harmful (inauspicious) and say that its sound is like that of death. Chinese people use homophone for getting the meaning of numbers.

This is the reason why numeral ‘8’ is considered as positive while numeral ‘4’ is considered as negative. In fact, numeral ‘4’ is related to positive subjects like- education, sex, romance, love, etc.

Homophone is used when house number has more than one digit (numerals). The people believing numeral ‘4’ as inauspicious can make changing in their luck by adding few words in it like ‘E’ or ‘B’.
