Astrology Vaastu Shastra – The two luminaries viz. the Sun and the Moon are important constituents of Vedic astrology. This article highlights their important link with the principles of Vaastu.
In Vedic astrology the Sun is considered a planet and it signifies the soul or the core personality of the native. Sun also signifies father, heart, government, authority, royal magnificence, individuality etc.
As per the principles of the ancient science and art of Vaastu the Sun governs the east direction. It is because of the strength and auspiciousness of the Sun that the east facing buildings are considered favourable for the owner as well as the occupants of that building.
If there is a Vaastu defect (Dosha) in the east part of the premises, then the owner as well as the occupants may suffer from poor health, lack of recognition and bad relations with authorities and superiors.
In a birth chart the 1st house or the ascendant represents the East direction. If the ascendant in a birth chart is under affliction then the native may face health or personality related problems and bad relations with spouse. Such problems may further magnify if there exists a Vaastu defect in the east part of the house occupied by that native. In all such cases strengthening the natal Sun through remedial measures and rectifying the Vaastu defect may help a lot.
In Vedic astrology the Moon is considered a planet and it signifies the mind of the native. The Moon also signifies mother, prosperity, peace of mind, and blood circulation and menstruation cycle in a female.
The Moon sign or the sign which Moon occupies in a birth chart is known as the Moon ascendant or rashi of the native. The constellation in which the natal Moon is at the time of birth is known as the birth constellation or nakshatra of the native.
In the birth chart the 5th and 6th houses correspond to the northwest direction. If there is a vaastu defect in the northwest part of the premise then the owner and occupants may face relationship problems with progeny and suffering from frequent diseases.
