Our preferences for the kind of house we want to stay in, is largely dependent on what rashi or yoni we are born in. For example, people born in Sarp Yonis, prefer less crowded houses and in general, they always feel that others' houses are better built than their own. People born in 'billi yoni' like to stay in closed spaces. Those born in Mesha Yoni, like spacious houses, and so on and forth.
South/South East facing entrance of the house isn't bad always and similarly, North East entrance is not always good. If the head of the family's Mars, Rahu and Saturn are strong, then for him, the house with an entrance facing South or South east is in fact, better than the other directions. This is also good for those families, in which most of the people have bad Mars in their horoscopes.
Specific Problem Remedies:
If most of the people have Bad Mars in a family, then there is a lack of peace in that house, and people have an angry nature. In these houses, there are chances of fire breaking out and almost all members face problems in marriage or getting married.
Remedy: For those with Bad Mars, amongst many other remedies for Mars, they can also try this simple one. Use earthen utensils (mitti ke bartan) as much as possible. Each and every member should try to use earthen utensils. You may drink water in a mitti glass or have milk in that etc.
If Rahu of the family is not good, there are chances of thefts in that house, or things get lost, also, "seelan" problem in walls or troubles related to electric/electronic items.
Remedy: Have atleast one meal sitting inside the kitchen facing east direction, and sitting on a jute mat (gunny bag or smthg). Every member must do this. You can choose different days for different members to sit and have food inside the kitchen.
If Door opens in the West or South direction: Hang a considerably big Name Plate, which should be yellow in color. If you don't do this, your guests might get disappointed for some reason or the other. Also, in the NW direction, light guggal. For students facing problems in study/concentration due to bad Rahu of their house, must light a lamp on the SE corner of their study table.
If right after shifting to a new house, you suffer losses after losss or get diseased often, then keep the Name of the House that is in concurrence with either your Rashi, Lagna or 4th house Rashi of your horoscope (you may take the help of a good astrologer for this).
Three Pillars of Vaastu and the significance of Vaastu according to Sh. Pawan Sinha ji:
- Purusharth Chaturshtey: Dharma, Artha, Kaama, and Moksha: The balance of these 4 elements of human life is what Vaastu shastra aims at achieving. In a house, where there's an imbalance of any of these elements, those houses are believed to be not prospering well or its family members suffer in some area of life for sure. If Dharma is disturbed- not much progress in the house; Artha- Monetary problems; Kaama-Progeny issues; Moksha-Spiritual hurdles.
- The directions/konas:1) Aagne Kona - South East 2) Ishaan Kona- North East 3) Vyaavya Kona - North West 4) Nirriti Kona- South West.These directions specifiy the kind of energy that will flow in the house. In the Aagne Kona, for example, fiery energy needs to be there, while in the Ishaana, the divine energy.
- The Planets of the houses. If Sun of the house is not good, for example, then, there will be fights and arguments in the house, pitra dosha will trouble more; Mars- Fire may break out, problems in marriage; Venus- Health and prosperity won't be there; Jupiter-Mercury-Problem in children's concentration in their studies; Rahu- theft, misunderstandings, losses etc.
General Vaastu Remedies:
- Try not to keep Box Beds at home. If you have them, then atleast don't put any iron products in it. Also, don't stuff them with useless things (kabaad). Newly-wed couples should especially, adhere to this advice.
