Lucky and Unlucky Numbers in Chinese Culture

Lucky and Unlucky Numbers in Chinese Culture

The study of Chinese culture is very interesting because they have so much superstitions and beliefs like numerology, using the laws of heaven and earth (astronomy and geography) -- "feng shui", choice of color etc. One of their main Chinese belief is that numbers contribute a lot to their good luck and their happiness in life. Their belief pertaining to a particular number and the luck it may bring affect their behavior and choices in life . Chinese beliefs and culture revolves around getting good vibes or good luck and the pursuit of happiness and long life. In this article, we are going to look at lucky and unlucky numbers in Chinese culture, and the certain meaning of a particular number.

Have you ever wondered why they chose and fought hard to be the host of the Olympic 2008? they started the opeing ceremont on August 8, 2008? It is because the number 8 is a lucky number for them and they believe it will bring good luck to their players if they start the Olympics on that date. Are you interested yet, come on now we will take a look at lucky and unlucky numbers in Chinese culture.

First we are going to look at their definitions of numbers

  • Zero (0) -- simply means All or NOTHING as it is an absolute number
  • One (1) -- Individual. Aggressor -- "The Yang which is the other balance of Yin"
  • Two (2) -- Stability or Balance means Union or Receptive. "The Yin which is the other balance of Yang
  • Three (3) - means talking and understanding --Communication plus interaction plus Neutrality.
  • Four (4) -- Creation, Death
  • Five (5) -- Action or Restlessness.
  • Six (6) -- Fluidity, Responsibility, Reaction
  • seven (7) -- Mind, Consciousness and thoughts
  • Eight (8) -- Sacrifice, Work Hard and Power, Infinite -- no beginning no ending, continuous.
  • Nine (9) -- Highest level of change
  • Ten (10) -- Being born again or Rebirth

Concept of Numerology

  • Numerology is system of traditions, culture and belief's in mystic relationship between numerals and living things. Numerology is popular among the ancient mathematicians like Pythagoras. The relationship of numbers and living things is like relationship of astrology and astronomy, alchemy and chemistry.

General Rules on Numbers

  • To consider if the number is lucky means to consider the pronunciation of the number and they sound pronunciation of another word and it should carry a positive connotation or vibes.
  • Even numbers are preferred but not the number four
  • Four is the most dreaded number - it means death
  • Eight is a lucky number and is always good for business
  • For odd numbers, seven implies anger and abandon, it is both an unlucky and lucky number
  • Nine means longevity and eternity. It is the luckiest number
  • Fourteen as well as 4 are the most feared number in Chinese superstition.
  • Thirteen is also an unlucky number to Chinese people so they don't usually have thirteenth floor or fourteenth floor in any buildings
  • They usually begin a new business on the 8th day. Number 8 is lucky for business as it brings unending money and good luck due to the shape of number -- infinite shape
  • Certain numbers are auspicisos meaning lucky and inauspicios meaning unlucky. This goes for single digits and or any combinations of numbers

Valentine's Day is nearing so when you give flowers to your loved one consider these:

  • One means you are my love
  • Two means we are together, we are best as pairs
  • Three means "I love you"

Lucky and Unlucky Numbers in Chinese Culture

  • Odd Numbers generally mean the Yang energy -- celestial, space, heaven -- above earth and masculine
  • Even Numbers generally mean Yin energy and it means terrestrial, earthly , earth and is feminine

Lucky or Unlucky Chinese Numbers

  • Zero means the pre inception, nothingness, but cannot be identified, it is deprivation of the senses
  • One means loneliness, beginning, masculine. One has a thrusting energy that surges forth new growth and potential. One corresponds with the Chinese Zodiac symbol of the Rat. The energy of one rules over the Northern direction in Feng Shui practices.
  • Two is considered a good number in Chinese culture because pairs are always good for them. They always use double things to emphasize things as well, like double happiness, double coins etc.It also means a female. "Two corresponds with the Chinese zodiac symbol of the Ox plus it governs North plus Northeast directions in Feng Shui".
  • Three is also a lucky number for them as this is similar to the character of birth. The "Chinese Tiger" is the Chinese zodiac symbol for number three-- and East plusNortheast is the designated direction in Feng Shui-
  • Four is an unlucky number and it means death. That is why there is no 4th floor usually in Chinese buildings -- the Chinese zodiac symbol for number four is the Rabbit -- and east is its direction in Feng Shui --
  • Five -- this is a lucky number and is usually link to the five elements which are wood, earth eater fire earth and metal. This number is usually linked to the Emperor of China as well and the Tienanmen gate. "A great practice to familiarize ourselves with the Chinese number five is to adopt the founding five Chinese blessings like Wealth-- Happiness-- Longevity -- Luck and Prosperity. "The Chinese zodiac symbol for number five is the Chinese Dragon plus its corresponding direction in "Feng Shui" is East and Souththeast-
  • Six -- The number six usually means fluidity -- blessings and it is good for business, unlike in the Western world where we don’t like the number six, in Chinese culture it is a lucky number. "When we contemplate the meaning of number six in our lives we are contemplating the perennial mysteries of life contained in celestial power-- cosmic focus and the cyclical nature of time. "The Snake" -- is the Chinese zodiac symbol for number six plus South and Southeast is its direction in "Feng Shui" practices--
  • Seven -- This is an unlucky number in Chinese. I dont know why Tony Parker and his wife Eva Longoria married in France on July 7, 2007. It sio the month of ghost July. The number six, eight and nine are lucky dates as well. And the Chinese zodiac symbol for seven is the horse plus South is the "Feng Shui" coordinate--

  • Eight -- This is their favorite number aside from nine and simply means prosperity. It is interesting to note that words and the number are similar - number eight and fortune "Baat and faat".The value of eight is also linked with Buddhism -- the Lotus flower with eight petals. "The Sheep" is the Chinese zodiac symbol for this number and South--Southwest is the "Feng Shui" direction--
  • Nine-- is the biggest of single numbers and it connotes the "Emperor of China" -- his robes are with nine dragons on it. Nine is a lucky number for Chinese because it connotes longevity, happiness and good luck. Since the number nine is the highest number it means it is reaching the highest cosmic satisfaction and its Chinese zodiac symbol is Monkey and its "Feng Shui" direction is West/Southwest --

Some interesting facts about the number 8

  • The Olympics in Beijing kicked off in August 8, 2008 at 8 pm, 8 minutes and 8 seconds after 8 pm.
  • A Chinese man offered to sell his license plate number -- A88888 for USD164,000
  • A number of a telephone with all eight digits on it was sold for 270, 723 in Chengdu, China.
  • The number eight can also be linked to the lotus flower with eight petals
  • The Bank of Commerce in New York when they have grand opening raffled off safety deposit box number 888.
  • it was in 1994 when a Chinese businessman paid 1.7 million USD for a car license plate with -9- --- a number that was particularly lucky that year because the Chinese word for --nine-- sounds like the Chinese word for "dog," and 1994 was the year of that animal.
  • A Chinese man paid 215,000 USD for the lucky number for a cellphone "133-3333-3333".

  • Another phone number 8888-8888 has also been purchased in China..

Wonderful information and so thorough! I am a big fan of numbers and math and feng-shui - there is so much science and logic there and I have benefited from being in tune with numerology and feng-shui.

When I lived in S. Korea it was the same with number 4 - when I was on an elevator there would be no numeral for the 4th floor, instead it was written out in English - so it would be pronounced differently.

I'll bookmark this so I can refer back.

Love your new photo by the way! And wait a minute...you've been on hub pages for only 4 months? But, it seems like I have known you for years!

Nicely compiled hub Maita. Though I do not believe in lucky or unlucky numbers, only Jesus Christ, learning the role numbers play in other cultures is still interesting.

Maita, excellent hub, my kaibigan!

Fortunately numbers have the power we accept to bestow upon them. In my numerology chart, number 8 is my number of mission! I will take that! However, number 4, which has always been my favorite does not relate to me as death, as I am not even afraid of dying. Not out of spite, mind you, but because I believe in afterlife and I am a happy individual!

Salamat for sharing!

Two thumbs up!

warm regards and blessings,

your kaibigan,

Al

I am 48 so half good year half bad, and accurate too. I know numerology would marry the numbers to 12 then 3, but indulge me, I will be 49 in October and that would make next year a 4. I love all this stuff. And Feng Shui really works, problem is I must clean my house and I am being lazy and reading great hubs. :) I better go clean now, just in case my next year is a 4, I must feng shui away the bad luck. LOL

Thanks for the interesting hub. Numbers definitely play a huge part in the Chinese way of life. Even wedding days are fixed based on lucky month and lucky days. 7 is generally considered a symbol of bad luck and is the month of the ghost festival. Of course, no sane Chinese person will consider any day in the 7th month for a wedding date.

Thanks for the interesting read again.

Wow Maita. This was a fun and fascinating hub to read. I am familiar with much of Chinese numerology as I studied Asian literature in college. One of my professors were also Korean-American. The number four is very unlucky in most Asian cultures, not just Chinese, such as Korean.

Did you know that Hades' symbol (the god of the Greek Underworld) is also the number 4?

Great hub Maita! Superstitions and beliefs abound in all cultures, and numerology is one of the most common in many cultures. Egyptions, Mayans and Aztecs followed numerology. Perhaps there is some truth? Lovely summary of the numbers and their meanings! Thank you Maita!


ateenyi profile image

ateenyi 6 years ago from Chicago

Good Hub!!!!!

The numerology and feng sui are the main area of focus into the hub. The present scientific society may consider it superstitions, but these numbers are very much deeply rooted in scientific culture. The number eight is luckiest because it is close to infinity. The whole hub provides tremendous joy and information. Thanks for sharing such nice information.

Hi Tatto, I think that the number 22 is a lucky number, because it a balance, usually Chinese like the idea of balance, like the balance of nature, yin and yang, so it is a lucky number, Maita

Another note, for Chinese who has been exposed to Christianity, they don't think 666 is a lucky number any more.

I came across a house with number 666 here in a town called Malacca. It was deserted with wild grass growing everywhere in the house. It's definitely not doing so well.

Well i have to confess that i don't even know some of these informations about the numbers..:))) and actually you can just find out so many interesting culture for every country if you decide to dig out some there..and yes we like the number 6 and 8 and 9 ...and red paper for wedding and white paper for death...

Anyway for most of chinese people , especially for youngers, they don't care much about the numbers...as for some people who pay so much for just a few numbers, well what can they do when have so much money but don't want to give it to poor?

Well anyway even for me as a chinese, i just feel so tired when i see these informations about the numbers, so actually we don't care much about them in real life!

But yes, for some special conditions , we think about it:))
