When we talk about Vaastu, the design and layout of the house comes into our mind. Basically, it is the energy of the place which has effects on us. The vibes can be changed or it can get altered by having different energisers or because of certain changes done to the structure or appearance. Extensive studies have been made to boost the energy of a place. It is easy to make a house Vaastu compliant when it is constructed newly. But for existing houses and moving into rented premises, one does not have the liberty of proper Vaastu or to make structural changes. In such cases, different energisers have to be used to augment the energy levels.

When your career needs a boost, the statue or picture of a horse can do wonders. The statue or photo of a running horse represents vitality which can give thrust to one’s career. It is best to keep the picture or statue of the horse at the North for growth and development of career as the prosperity and energy comes from the North. Those who are looking for popularity or fame should keep the hose at the South. Politicians, actors, singers, models, etc. can go for the South.

The running horse gets several benefits but it should not be saddled or on a leash which will restrict the flow of energy.It should be exhibited in a pair. The face of the horse should not look towards the window.

This door should be the biggest among all other doors of the house.

Recently, a prominent political leader had a public meeting at Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. Ujjain is famous for its temples and astrology. Another leader of the same party held a meeting at the same place during the last Lok Sabha elections facing the public at the South i.e. from the podium at the North. It was not successful and the party lost the elections by a huge margin. This time the Vaastu experts of Ujjain have pointed out the mistake and the new leader had addressed the public from the opposite side facing the North.
