North West Vastu Dosh & Remedies

North West is the direction of creativity, prosperity, luck and social circle and the ruler of this direction is Moon. Hence any vastu defect or dosh in North West direction leads to tension and clashes with neighbors, legal matters, court cases (even imprisonment in some cases).

Furthermore, if someone lives in a home that has vastu dosh in North West direction then he/she is certain to have more enemies than friends and that will keep him/her busy in some or other sort of trouble.

Having understood – some of the implications – of North West vastu defects, the next question coming in your mind would be what are those vastu defects that can lead to these troubles? Well the list, that we’ve complied just for you, answers the very same question.

North West Vastu DoshasNorth West Vastu Doshas (Defects) List

  1. Cut in North West
  2. Water Tank in North West
  3. Kitchen in North West
  4. Dead end in North side of North West corner

These are – the most common – vastu doshas that occur at the North West corner of a home or apartment. Allow us to elaborate more on the issues and problems that the residents of a home may face if they choose to live in a home with such vastu defect.

Problems Cause by North West Vastu Doshas (Defects)

  1. Legal Matters: Police cases, legal matters and court cases arising from clashes within family and with neighbors. It may also lead to imprisonment.
  2. Financial Problems: Defects in North West makes a person over confident and he starts to take wrong decisions (thinking that he is taking the right ones) and this in-turn leads to tremendous financial losses and clashes with others.
  3. Health Related Issues: Lung problems are most commonly reported in houses with North West vastu defects. Ranging from difficulty in breathing, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer and other lethal lung related diseases.

Having understood the problems that North West vastu dosh can bring to people residing in such “defected” homes, it’s time now that you move your concentration from problems to solution and learn vastu remedies that you can apply to reduce ill effects of these North West vastu doshas.

Vastu Remedies for North West Doshas:

  1. Place 3 vastu pyramids one each on left and right side of main door and one on top at center.
  2. Place OM, Swatik and Trishul on both sides of home entrance.
  3. Fasting on Mondays will surely help; hence keep fast on Mondays.
  4. Installing a Chandra Yantra (Moon Yantra) is one of the best remedies for North West vastu doshas.
  5. If there’s a cut in North West corner then place 4 vastu pyramids, one each in North, East, West and South part of home.

    Hi Rakesh Nahata,

    All seems well but the only concern that we have is the staircase that you’ve mentioned in your query.

    Can you please draw a rough sketch of your home (locating entrance, stairs, kitchen, rooms etc.) and attach it with your next comment for better analysis?

    Thanks,

    My home is north west facing. i have north / north east portion of home extended out with outdoor varanda (not covered – open on three sides only top roof). This makes a cut in north west corner of home as its my driveway to garage. is this considered vastu dosh? If yes then according to your remedies where should I place vastu pyramid inside the main door or outside door?

    • VastuShastraAdmin

        I have send sketch of my home 2 days ago. did you receive it?

        • VastuShastraAdmin

          Hi Green Vision,

          For office we’d suggest sitting in the SW corner of the room facing North. This will attract money as North is the direction of Lord Kubera.
          Also keep the cash locker towards the South wall so that the locker opens in North direction.

  • roshel

    my home is facing south. i have a extra room which we made as a guest room in north west corner of the home. the entrance door for that room is from the outside of the house. it is faced west. we placed a bed and almariah and extra cubord in that room. we are not using that room daily. most of the times it is closed. i am confused as you said we got lots of problems with neighbors which we don’t know the reasons for the enmity. some neighbors look away without any reasons. so i want to know is that because of that room vastu dosh.. ??????

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Roshel,

    Please send a plan or sketch of your home. Also mark North direction in it.

    Thanks,

    • roshel

      this is a sketch of my home

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Roshel,
    There’s a kitchen in the NE corner of your home and that’s a vastu defect; remedies to NE kitchen is provided @ http://www.vastushastraguru.com/vastu-remedies-north-east-kitchen/
    Also, as per the design that you’ve sent I can see that the SW corner of your home is cut and that’s a huge vastu shastra defect. There’s a remedy that you can find http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/
    Also, the main door of your home is in South direction and that again a huge vastu shastra defect if it’s not in the 4th part of South side of your home. Here’s how you can determine if the door is in 4th part.
    Measure the length of South side of your home (only the South wall of your home) and then divide it by 9. Then from the SE corner, start marking from number 1 to 9 towards SW corner; if the main door falls in 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th part the that’s a huge vastu defect.
    Apart from all this I can see a lot of other vastu defects in this home. By the way, how long have you have been living in this home?

    Thanks,

    When installing pyramid make sure to align one of its side with any one of the directions -N, S, E, and W.

    To install pyramid on wall, stick it with the help of double adhesive foam tape.

    To install pyramid in land, dig a pit of 1.5 feet, place the pyramid there and then cover the soil.

  • my main door of the house is in the northwest . females in the house having been facing many health problems.kindly suggest some simple remedies as main door direction cannot be changed.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Akhila,

    I can see that there are stairs in your home; are those going clockwise or anticlockwise while going up.

    Also, do you have (or want to have) a pooja room or pooja place in your home? As I can’t see one on the ground floor.

    Dear Sir, i have a big issue in my House. I have a cut in South West of my house. So i don’t understand completely. Do i have to put copper pyramids at all the angels of my house, even if one angle will be longer then the other. The wall from North West to North East is longer then the wall from South West to South East. I have one of those unsuitable plots and i cant do anything about this. I will really appreciate your reply. Sincerely Jelena

    Hi,here is my house sketch. I hope it is fine, if it’s not clear tell me and i will try to explain.
    As I am not moving anywhere soon i am trying to get house remedies and if you can give me some advice on it. For the next year i’ll try to move my aquarium from Brahmastan to north east. I am not using my toilet in the north east (well there is few more in my household who still does it). And i don’t know what i can do about my cut in south west.
    Thank you

    • VastuShastraAdmin

      Hi Jelena,

      There’s a staircase in the NE corner of the home and that’s not good.

      Also, make sure that you face West while cooking, if West is not possible the face East.

      For the cut in South West please refer http://www.vastushastraguru.com/south-west-vastu-dosh-remedies/

      Thanks,
      Admin

      • Jelena

        Thank you very much for your reply..for the remedy on the cut on South West i’ll get (or at least try to get) 4 copper pyramids and place them on North South West and East..And what can i get for that staircase? Thank you again. Jelena.

      • Jelena

        I am reading loads of literature on Vastu Shastra..and with the time it becomes clearer..but maybe there is some book that you could recommend for me..But i can’t find to much of literature on Flowers for home..All i know is no dried flowers, no thorny flowers, or with milky liquid. .what about the rest..like Aloe (is that thorny)..i am not sure.Or dracena palm i keep it in South East as it represents fire..i don’t know what can i place in my bedroom..So if you have any book that you could advice to me.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Jelena,

    For the staircase, you can put 2 copper tortoise under the lowest step of the staircase. This symbolizes that he weight of the staircase is borne by the shell of turtle and not by vastu purusha.

    You can get copper turtles from http://amzn.to/1CQUAfJ

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Jelena,

    As per vastu shastra, any sort of living form, plant or animal isn’t allowed in bedroom. Yes, you can keep flowers but not plants.

    Here’s the only book that you need to know the ins and outs of vastu shastra. It’s awesome.

    • Jelena

      Thank you for your reply and advice. The book is expensive.

            Hi Jelena,

            You can ask as many questions as you have, I won’t mind that. In fact, I am grateful to God that He has given me the opportunity to help people.

    As a remedy, you can place 1 pyramid each in East, West, North and South of your home. This may reduce the ill effect.

            Hi Kaushal Sharma,

            Place the pyramids on a solid base; you must place them in the North, East, South and West of your home.

            Yes, fish aquariums are very good vastu tools to attract positive energy. Place the aquarium in NE part of home.

  • Rahul

    hello sir, my query is if there is stairs in North-West zone of a flat which is going from inside towards terrace making the ceiling larger in height than NE and SW. Is that a defect? because on terrace NE comes out to be higher than NE and SW. Hence please provide if there are any problems due to this and what are the remedies suggested.

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Have replied.

    Thanks,
    Admin

  • VastuShastraAdmin

    Hi Rahul,

    You mean to say that due to staircase, NE is higher than SW. Also, as you said that the staircase is in NW part of a home, this means that while going up one faces North or East.

    Is my assumption correct?

    Thanks,
    Admin

    • Rahul

      Sorry i would like to correct my query above. its NW which is higher and not NE. In the above picture, stairs is in NW direction which has a gate towards North. so stairs is connected from inside home to terrace. On terrace there is a elevation (approx 12 foot) on NW due to stairs height which is higher than the terrace boundary wall. On terrace, NE wall is approx 9 foot and SW wall is approx 7 foot. Kindly provide if there are any problems due to this and what are the remedies suggested.
