Important Vaastu Tips

Importance of Vaastu according to Direction
The Astrological aspects of house construction are covered under 'Hora Shastra', which recognizes eight directions instead of four. 

The study and practice of these important tips ensures peace, prosperity and Divine Blessings on the Dweller.

he East

Sun, the head of the solar galaxy has been allotted governance of the eastern direction. It is imperative that the rays of this soul-signifying planet should fall inside the house. If sunís rays do not properly illuminate the house, there will impediments both to the progress of the family as well as its progeny. That is why the ancestors have given the prime of place to the eastern door.

Sun has as his enemies Venus and Dragonís Head. As Saturn is Sunís son, the relationship is medium. Accordingly if (Sun + Venus) the kitchen is located to the east of the house, the housewife will suffer from bilious complaints and nervous debility and uterine disorders. There will be influx of money to the family to a large extent. But, the housewife will have least happiness though she commands all comforts.

Sun + Dragonís Head : If there is lumber room in the eastern direction in which discarded materials are stacked, the owner of the house will meet with unnatural death failing which he will suffer from some malign disease. Even if the eastern walls including window panes are dilapidated the same bad effects are indicated.

If there is the coupleís bedroom to the east, the wife will be of an angry mood. If there is dining room to the east the owner of the house will have to face difficulties in achieving progress. There will be medium good effects. If there is the granary to the east it is indicated that the head of the family will have to travel a lot. If there is family cash box in the east it will ensure auspicious effects.

If there is a prayer room to the east, it ensures auspicious effects. The owner will be given to Divine contemplation and will attain name and fame. Like this we have to predict taking into consideration the planetary mutual friendship and enmities and the directions governed by them.

South East

The God of fire is the presiding deity for this direction and Venus rules over this direction. As Venus is both governing planet for wife and husband, there will be complete independence for the wife in kitchen having the fire (Fire is the significator of Energy and power ruled by planet Mars) and this is highly significant astrologically.

But in the direction of South East, being ruled by Venus, if there is large accumulation of food articles being ruled by planet Moon or if there is too much storage of water there in the form of the installation of an overhead water tank, the housewife as also her daughter will suffer from ill health and will get bad name unnecessarily or the household expenditure will far exceed the family income and invariably the owner will have to incur debts.

The God of Death is the presiding Deity for this direction and Mars is the governing Planet. It is therefore proper that bedroom should be located here. Husband governing planet Mars and Wife governing Venus are both friendly to each other. It is as though the kitchen is the house of exaltation for Mars and the intensity of fire will be maximum. By this even Venus can join in the bedroom. But the husband and wife sleeping together in the kitchen where Venus (wife governing planet) is the governing planet is not conducive. In such of the houses where Kitchen and bedroom are one and the same, the couple will experience lot of mental unrest (fire). The husband will be given to fits of anger and the wife will have to face the brunt of his attack, failing which the husband will suffer from loss of strength and weakness.

If the cash or cosmetic articles are kept in the South direction, there will not be efflux of income. If the inmates of the house take their meals in the bedroom located in the South direction of the house, they will have to face ill health and suffer from laziness. If they take their meals actually sitting on the beds it is said that they will have to face poverty and ill health. If there is a storage room in which food articles are stored in the South, there will be misunderstandings, disputes and quarrels amongst brothers.

If old and discarded materials, big tubs, copper vessels, iron bars, wooden articles etc. are stored in the bed room, it is indicated that one of the house ownerís brother will have to face and overcome difficulties and dangers. Though the house owner talks with haughtiness, he will be powerless and there will be an atmosphere of unrest (Mars + Dragonís Head), in the family. Further the house owner will have to face difficulties again and again.

Even if in the bedroom there is collection of food grains, food products and attached bathroom, there will be ill health to daughters as also for the husband and wife. The house-wife will have to face ill health, mental unrest etc. and the husband will also suffer from lack of mental peace. He will be always fickle in nature (Mars + Moon).

If money is kept in the bed room of the couple, there will be medium good effect (Mars + Venus + Mercury). It will also apply to the storage of ornaments, money, silver and gold. But the North direction is highly auspicious for storing wealth.  

Either having Godís idol in the bedroom or sleeping in the prayer room indicates stubbornness, anger and emotional upsets to the house owner. Even if the bedroom is to East of the house, effects such as loss of progeny ill health to spouse are indicated.
