Prime time for property

It’s a good year to buy, from an astrological perspective.

Good news for potential house buyers!

Astrologically, 2015 is an auspicious year to buy or invest in a residential or commercial property owing to the favourable planetary position.

Based on the Indian almanac, the conjunction of Jupiter and Mars this year will provide growth and comfort, and will encourage people to place their savings in real estate.

Astrological analysis reveals that the influence of the two planets’ combination would be felt from May onwards.

This means investing in a house or land will have better returns rather than gold and stocks in the coming months.

Buying a property should not be based on gut feelings but it should be done during a favourable period so that the choice you make will be perfect and the transaction will be seamless.

To provide people with greater insights into choosing a favourable property, I have been invited to present talks on Vasthu Sastra application at two major property fairs organised by The Star – in Puchong on March 8 and in Seberang Jaya, Penang, on March 14.

This is the first time the fair in Penang will be held on the mainland and also in Puchong to reach out to house buyers and new property markets.

Participating developers are expected to introduce creative designs, some incorporating Indian and Chinese geomancy values, to woo customers at both events.

Considerations when purchasing a property go beyond its location, beauty and price.

It becomes effortless if a buyer is aware of the shape of the physical structure and understands the orientation of amenities in the enclosure.

The first choice would be to go for a landed property because staying connected with earth energy is vital in Vasthu Sastra to enjoy health, happiness, prosperity and peace.

Avoid properties located in a valley or on hilltops because buildings on such ground often face challenges of uneven land, which will distort the flow of chi (energy).

The land should be square or rectangular; do not choose houses located on a plot that is irregular in shape.

Also, take roads into consideration and stay away from properties that have a road “spearing” into the house like a T-junction.

Roads on two or more sides of the plot are fine.

When viewing the property models at the fairs, ask for the compass direction of the unit that you are interested in buying because this would determine whether it is favourable or unfavourable for you based on your zodiac sign.

In Indian astrology, which is based on moon signs, each zodiac sign has its auspicious and inauspicious directions.

Only the property owner’s zodiac symbol is taken into consideration and not others in the family when selecting the direction of the house (see graphic).

The general guideline is that out of the eight compass directions – north, south, east, west, north-east, south-east, north-west and south-west – avoid having the main door located in the south-west, which will invite misery and challenges for the occupants.

Look for more openings like windows and the balcony in the northern and eastern sectors of the house to allow natural light and ventilation.

Avoid designs that have huge openings in the southern and western sectors, which will allow the escape of energy that should be retained.

Generally, you will find south-facing houses more Vasthu-friendly – having the master bedroom, kitchen, toilets and staircase in the appropriate places.

Toilets and bathrooms must not be located in the south-west and north-east quadrants of the house. Having those facilities in any other quadrant is fine.

As for the kitchen, it should be placed in the north-west for a south-facing house and south-east in a north-facing house.

For those who are going for corner lots, note that the extra piece of land must not have “cuts” or gaps because such defects are considered bad.

Finally, after you have chosen the house that best matches your zodiac sign and Vasthu alignment, perform the appropriate housewarming ceremony for your respective faith before moving in.

This is to cleanse the house of unseen entities and welcome fresh energies into your dwelling space for harmonious living.
