Chinese Numerology

In a similar way that Western cultures view the number 13 as being lucky or unlucky depending on circumstance, in Chinese culture, different numbers are viewed as being luckier than others. And how is it decided that a number is luckier than another? By the meaning of a word that its pronunciation is close to. For example, as you'll see below, the number two in Cantonese sounds like the word for 'easy', and so 2 is a lucky number in one's life.


Odd, Even, Yin, Yang and Luck

Additionally, odd and even number vary in the luck associated with them in accordance with yin and yang. Briefly, these properties are opposing ideas that explain balance in the world


  • Yin's meaning includes overcast, cloudy weather.
  • Yang meaning includes sunlight - better than yin's cloudy quality.
  • Odd numbers are believed to possess the positive yang associations, while even numbers are left with yin's less desirable qualities, making numbers 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 supposedly luckier than even numbers.
