Vastu and Astrology are interdependent and interrelated. From Astrology we get the information on colours, metals, five great elements related to planets and directions which is of immense value for creating Vastu- related remedial measures.
Human dwellings are an extension of human bodies just as the universe is an extension of a home. Thus our home links us to the universe.

Vithi Shoola

(Poison Arrow)

In Sanskrit Vithi denotes road and Shoola denotes arrow.

VithiShoola is the name given to roads or lanes that run into the face of the plot from different directions.

These roads thrust concentrated energy of enormous potency into the site. This energy can be positive or negative depending on the direction from which they come.

Scholars are divided in their opinions about VithiShoola. Some believe that a VithiShoola from source zones ie North, North-East and East creates a positive result.
However others believe that an arrow from any direction is bound to create wounds.

Most modern scholars agree that a VithiShoola from North-North-East and East-North-East lead to good results for the residents of the house.

Given below is a drawing showing VithiShoolas and their effects at one glance.

Extensions And Reductions

A perfect plot is either square or rectangular. Such plots have a perfect balance of all directions.

However in actual practice there are plots with extensions and reductions in any of the corners, resulting in irregular shapes which disturb the balance of the plot and creates an imbalance of the five elements of nature within the plot.

These extensions and reductions have either a positive or negative impact on the residents of the plot depending on the direction of the extension or reduction.
