The South-west direction is owned by a demon called Niriti while the ruling planet is Rahu. The magnetic energies flowing in from the North-east are stored in this direction and hence it is considered to be the strongest point of a plot. This direction, if used favorably, can ensure health, wealth, confidence, name and fame for its residents. Contrastingly, it can bring about major losses, cause depression, anxiety and suicidal feelings and even invite problems at the workplace, if used against the Vaastu principles.

Some important points about South-west plots

  • South-west plots are very stable and people residing in them get attributed with strong leadership qualities, hence marriageable girls should not be given a room in this section of the plot.
  • Being of dominating overtones, this direction is ideal for a master bedroom and hence should be occupied by the head of the family. Contrarily, it should never be given to the son of the family or else it would lead to major clashes among the family members. 

What to avoid in the South-west direction:

  •  The entrance of a house should never fall in the South-west as it would lead to major mishaps in the life of its inmates.
  • An underground water tank in the south-west would mean causing delays in the life of its owners, right from personal matters to decisions relating to business and financial deals.
  • A basement in the south-west should be avoided at all costs as it would create depression and anxiety for the occupants.
  • The south-west portion of the house should be more elevated. It should also be heavier from the rest of the structure.
  • The reputations and fame of the family members of the house are put at stake of a kitchen is built in this direction.
  • It should be noted that there are no cracks on the south-western walls of the house as it would cause major health problems for its residents and incurring of added expenditures for the treatment of the same.

South-west plots, if not Vasu-abiding, can cause the following problems in life:

  • inmates become prone to chronic diseases like TB, cancer and HIV
  • regular quarrels and disturbances among family members become very common
  • the name and fame of the head of the family gets jeopardised
  • south-west facing plots inmates tend to make more enemies and are susceptible to adultery.

In my 24 years of experience as a Vastu professional what I have always seen is that when we talk about the South-west plots it should be utilised with great efficiency in order to attain wealth, prosperity and good health and there should be no kitchen or cracks in this direction at any cost. If you are careful about these basic Vastu rules relating to the South-west nothing can ever go wrong and you would only attain success and prosperity in life.
