The 9 Stars and my Kua number. I am a little bit confused as to whether these Stars relate to what is sometimes known as Kua or a Gua.

The term Kua or Gua literally means Trigram.  In Feng Shui this, rather like the I Ching Astrology that I use, is identified by your year of birth based on the new year beginning on 4th February annually.  The difference between this Kua and Gua approach and mine is that in I Ching Astrology no differentiation is made according to gender.  Using the Kua and the Gua then the Trigrams are opposite according to the gender.  

However, in the 9 Stars we take a deeper look at a) the horoscope and b) which House you occupy in any given year.

In some forms of astrology based around Feng Shui, the Kua or Gua is purely used for deciding a) the best entrance for your property b) which directions to sleep, work, cook or face that are more appropriate for your particular Kua.  It is actually quite a rigid system.
