HOW TO WORK OUT YOUR MAGIC YEAR NUMBER

Take the year of your birth and add the last two digits together; if the results is 10 or more, add the two digits to reduce them to a single number then deduct the result from 10.

  • 1954-5+4=9 10-9=1 The Magic number is 1
  • 1950-5+0= 5 10–5=5 The Magic number is 5
  • 1949-4+9=13 1+3=4 10-4=6 The Magic number is 6
  • 1969–6+9=15 1+5=6 10–6= 4 The Magic number is 4

Unlike the Western Calendar the Nine Ki Year uses the Lunar Calendar and the new year starts on the 3,4,5, of February (To get the exact date of new year you will have to get a copy of a Chinese Calendar as new year days are changeable each year).  So if you were born after the 31 Dec and before 3,4,5, of February your year number will be the same as that for the preceding year. For example someone born on the 10 January 1956 will take 1955 as his/her year.

  • For people born after Feb 2001 you add the last two digits together and subtract from 9 instead of 10 so someone born on the 4 July 2003 will have a6year.(0+3=3 9-3=6)
