Solid land possess greater force of gravity, while land with loose soil or sand or hillocks possesses lesser force of gravity. Hence house constructed on solid ground will be more permanent and stable than the house constructed on loose ground or on sandy or hilly ground.

Magnetic Force

Our entire universe is interconnected by the magnetic force. All the planets, constellations and the other stars are connected to each other by the same magnetic force. This force maintains a certain balance and distance between these heavenly bodies and they keep on moving continuously. The magnet has two poles. North pole and South pole. Similarly our earth also has a North and a South pole. The entire universe remains in constant motion because of the magnetic attraction and repulsion of the heavenly bodies. Even our body is affected by these magnetic waves. Our head is the North pole while our feet are the South pole. The basic principle of magnetism is that North pole attracts the South pole and repels the North pole of another body. This is the scientific reason for sleeping with one's head towards the South direction. In this manner the earth's magnetic waves flow freely through our body and we sleep well.

Solar Energy

Sun is the main source of energy for the earth. Sun gives us heat, light and energy. It makes our life active and energetic. The Sunlight reaches some part or the other of the earth all the time. The types of rays reaching the earth throughout the day depend on the angle from where they reach the earth. Depending on the angle they are divided into three types. The rays arriving in the morning are called 'Parabaingani', the ones arriving in the afternoon are called 'Varnakram prakash and the ones arriving in the evening are called' Raktabh rays'. The early morning rays are not very hot. They give us vitamin D and are capable of destroying germs. As the rays turn redder, they become intolerable. Because of this scientific reasoning it is advisable to keep the East direction more open and the West direction less open. The morning Sun should be able to enter freely and give beneficial energy and at the same time destroy harmful germs and bacteria. To avoid the Raktabh rays of the evening, lesser windows should be provided in the West direction and large trees can also be planted in the West.

Connection between Vastu and Jyotish 5

Vastu is an excellent behavioural science based upon Jyotish and Muhurta. Vastu appears incomplete without the planets and the Nakshatras. A man's life is equally controlled by his destiny and his Vastu. If his destiny is good but his vastu is bad, then he will not get complete happiness and prosperity despite all efforts. If his destiny is bad but vastu is good then his troubles will be reduced, though they may not end completely. If both destiny and Vastu are bad then his life will be miserable. On the other hand if both are good then he leads a very happy life in every sense. Man cannot change his destiny but atleast he can improve his life through Vastu and through his own self efforts.

Where vastu is concerned, the directions are very important and each direction is controlled by some planet or the other. Auspiciousness or inauspiciousness in any direction of the house also affects the respective planet beneficially or adversely. For this reason it is said that keeping the directions in proper order also keeps the respective planet in good condition. Another saying goes that - fn'kk cnyks n'kk cnyksA

If you wish to change your condition then you should bring a change in your directions. Vedic astrology is based on nine planets, twelve rashis and twenty seven nakshatras. Each of the twelve rashis has predominance of some tatva or the other and they also represent some direction or the other.
