Vastu Commandments for 2009

The year 2008 has been bad.  Inflation has risen, stock market has collapsed, financial institutions, many of them of long standing have gone bust.   This recession has hit the global market with real estate prices touching a new low never seen before.  Businesses, particularly the IT industries, have either deferred promotions of employees or laid them off. 

2009 sees transit Jupiter moving into Capricorn and getting debilitated.  Crime and recession not only continue but also the physical (and mental) health of the nation and its people will suffer.

Let us understand important Vastu guidelines that can contribute to protecting us, make us healthier and enable us to live in harmony with others.  These guidelines can remove the imbalances of the primary elements and strengthen our finances too.

The year 2009 is ruled by the primary element Prithvi or Earth.  This is the central sector of the Peeta Mandala and is associated with the navel of the Vastu Purusha.  Imbalance of this element contributes to disharmony,  sudden losses,  failure in foreign assignments,  breaks in education, discord with elders and  higher ups, etc.

The primary direction of the year is North ruled by Kubera, the lord of wealth.  Imbalance in this direction can cause wisdom and intelligence to take a back set.  The imbalance can also see account frauds, contribute to improper and irrelevant talk , procrastinate and cancel almost certain journeys abroad,  see failures in higher studies,  make complexions go bad with pimples and freckles, bring in legal problems, etc.

The primary color of the year is Green.
