How to Determine West Facing House Accurately?

Before understanding everything else, it is crucial to be absolutely certain as to what is implied by having a West Facing House Vastu.

It is extremely crucial to be certain that a property is marked West Facing House Vastu accurately. Many people often assume that if the house faces towards the setting sun, then they have an west facing home.

However, vastu experts suggest against it. The setting sun is not pointing towards the actual west, as it goes around the sun throughout the year. In fact you get the actual west direction only 2 days a year.  Thus, you need to use a magnetic compass for the most accurate answer.

A magnetic compass always points towards exact north without any error. Thus, it can be used to determine the other 3 directions without any error as well.

So, mark the direction towards which you face, while going out of the house through the main door. If it happens to be the west direction for you, then you have a West Facing House Vastu.

Beside the west facing homes gets plenty of sunlight as well, during the second half of the day, which is from later afternoon to sunset. When the home receives sunlight, it gets enriched with the goodness of it.
