The nine magic Mewa square numbers represent the nine categories of astrological spirits. Each number has an interpretation that includes karmic relations from past life to future lives.

The Yearly Mewa, Bame, changes every year.

The Birth Mewa for the birth year, Keme, stays throughout one's life


In a primary state of nine magic square numbers, whether one adds horizontally, vertically or diagonally, the sum of any line is 15.

Each Mewa has its own element and its own colour:

Number Element Colour
4 Wood Green
7, 9 Fire Red
5 Earth Yellow
1, 6, 8 Iron White
2, 3 Water Blue


The Chinese used the colour black for water in the old text and blue for wood.
