There was a Chinese ruler name as Wu-of-Hsia, who was trying to find solutions to the flood caused due to Hwang-Ho river, his country’s people were regularly devastated by the flood.

Types of horizontal planes

In The Lo Shu Grid, There Are Three Types Of Horizontal Planes Present-

Mind plane

The first horizontal line of numbers 4, 9, and 2 in the Lo Shu Grid is the intellectual plane or mental plane. This line represents the person’s intellect, and ability to think and analyze things. If a person has all three numbers (4, 9, 2) in the Lo Shu Grid, then the person will have a rational and logical approach to life. But if any number from 4, 9, or 2 is missing, the plane will be incomplete and the person can be deficient in memory or impulsivity.

Emotional plane

The second line of numbers 3, 5, and 7 make the spiritual or emotional plane. It represents the person’s feelings, intuition, and instinct. The presence of numbers in this line can significant heavy emotions.  The repetition of Number 5 has a negative effect whereas too many 3’s. However, an excess of 7 is considered auspicious and spiritual. Too many 3, 5, and 7 in the emotional plane means analytical thinking is missing. If the numbers of the spiritual plane are not balanced by the numbers of the intellectual plane, then it indicates the person’s thoughts are from his heart.

Numbers 8, 1, and 6 are arranged in the last line and make the practical plane. Numbers 8, 1, and 6 (together or single) are prosperity numbers. These numbers are indicative of success, abundance, fortune, and prosperity. They also mean a luxury lifestyle, perhaps causing feelings of arrogance and egotism.
