Is South Facing House Good or Bad?: How to remedy a South facing house? is one of the most often Googled Vastu questions. I frequently get asked this question, and it is always followed by a fearful expression.
According to conventional thinking, living in a home with a south exposure will only bring bad luck. This idea has its origins in mythology since Lord Yama, the God of Death, is said to have sprung from the dakshin, or Southern domain, of the earth. And given its mythological roots, the unfavourable reputation of homes with southern exposure is just that—a myth.
South-Facing Homes and Vastu Shastra
A direction is not labelled as good or negative in Vastu Shastra. Many people have misconceptions about homes with southern exposures, yet it only takes a quick glance at the wealthiest and most developed areas of any city to see that these misconceptions are untrue. Whether in South Delhi, South Mumbai, or South Melbourne, these regions are economically thriving and humming with creative and cultural endeavours. A home facing south does not necessarily portend bad fortune because the South is not an unlucky direction.
Second, Vastu Shastra is a highly specialised discipline; it does not make generalisations. As a result, in order to build a harmonious place for you in accordance with Vastu Shastra, other factors such as your planetary positions (horoscope) must also be taken into account. The name of the occupant or the head of the family who occupies the area are other elements that influence this alignment.
Who Rejuvenates in a South-Facing Residence?
Many folks may choose their ideal home to be one that faces south. The sun provides much of the energy for the southern direction, which is regarded as a high-energy region. The energy in a South-facing home will be helpful to people who work in industries like public relations, media, and film—those who value fame, popularity, and public recognition—in their pursuit.
It is a positive energy that will motivate you to work hard and accomplish your objectives.
Second, a south-facing residence is the ideal alignment for your energy if Mars is strongly represented in your horoscope. Those of you who have a favourable Mars location will prosper and be happy in a residence that faces south.
