The owner of the north-west direction is Vayudev, Lord of wind. The planet of this direction is Chand (moon). As it is powered by the element of Wind, the north-west is highly unstable. This powerful direction is known for creating opportunities in life, and if used in accordance to Vastu Shastra principles, it can take your career to immense heights. Conversely, as a Vastu expert myself, I believe the incorrect usage of the north-west results in instability, indecision and diseases. It can also create a sense of restlessness among the residents of the building.
Vastu shastra tips for the northwest are as follows:
1 The north-west is a great corner for a guest room or a drawing room. It is also a good location for finished goods store, as it helps in the quick movement of material and fewer delays in payment. Underground water tanks in this direction are also not good. It may result in unwanted tensions and clashes with family members, relatives and friends. It can cause legal and administrative problems as well.
2 Water slopes heading towards the south-east also bring in problems, as do swimming pools. This can lead to fire-related accidents and other tensions.
3 Placing a mandir, puja room or a study room in this area is also not advisable, as due to its heated environment, it is not considered to be a peaceful location. The same stands true for safes storing cash and important files.
4 Avoid positioning a building’s main entries in the south-east as this is very risky and brings in unforeseen problems for the occupants. It may create legal problems as well.
5 Do not place a mirror in the south-east. This may result in losses for business organizations.
Every direction, according to Vastu Shastra, can be used to the best possible benefit provided Vastu principles and rules for it are properly adhered to. Every direction is sensitive but the using it sensibly can reap positive results for us.
