South west corner Vastu: Remedies for a cut in south-west direction

[] Here are some remedies and tips, according to Vastu Shastra, if your home or plot has a cut in the south-west direction

According to Vastu Shastra, the south-west direction, also known as the Nairutya corner, denotes the earth elements and is governed by Rahu, one of the fiercest planets, as per Vedic astrology. The south-west corner also represents stability of your household and, therefore, it is important for you to balance all the elements in this region, to ensure happiness and prosperity at home. However, if there is a cut in this corner or any other major Vastu defect, it can create disturbance in your home. It can also invite unexpected expenses and cause mental stress. Therefore, it is important for you to keep this section heavier than any other part of your home and place things which can bring the benefits of the earth elements.
