Lou Shu Grid

It is also known as Lo Shu Square, which is a unique arrangement of numbers from 1 to 9 in a 3x3 grid. It is an ancient Chinese tool and is closely associated with Chinese numerology and Feng Shui. Its history is 4000 years old. According to the legend, a mythical turtle emerged from the Luo River, carrying a curious pattern on its shell. This pattern was the Lou Shu Grid, and its numbers were believed to have magical and divinatory significance. It is similar to our Indian Surya Yantra. The only difference is If our Sura Yantra is turned upside down then it becomes Lou-shu-grid.

Each row, column, and diagonal of the grid add up to the 15. This magical square became the foundation for various Chinese metaphysical and divination practices.

In Feng Shui, the Lou Shu Grid is used to determine the auspicious or inauspicious locations of different energies within a space. The numbers in each sector of the grid are associated with specific elements, directions, and aspects of life. Feng Shui practitioners use the Lou Shu Grid to enhance positive energy and balance within a space. In Chinese numerology, the numbers in the Lou Shu Grid are also associated with the Chinese Five Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) and the Eight Trigrams of the I Ching.
