DIY feng shui – your house’s auspicious locations (BaZhai)

Feng shui is the study of how you as an individual, can get the maximum return from your home; office; land or property. In this post, you will know how to find the four auspicious locations (rooms) in your home and office. Have a pen, notebook, transparent printing sheet, compass and your floor plan ready.

In one of my earlier post’s, I had written about how to take your house facing measurement. Today we will use your house facing direction to find the four auspicious locations of your home or office.

How to find the auspicious rooms on your floor plan?

  • Find the center of your house on your floor plan. Take the full length and breadth of your house. Let me give you an example from one of my consultation files; in the floor plan given below the length of the house is 77 feet and breadth 37 feet. From its dimensions, it’s clear that it is a rectangular shaped house. You have to divide the length and the breadth by 2. From the example, half of the full length will be 38.5 feet similarly half of breadth will be 18.5 feet.

Floor plan

  • Stand in the center of your house. From the center face straight towards your house facing direction and take the compass measurement. For e.g. in the diagram given below the house faces 2 degrees north.


  • Now you will have to divide your floor plan. To make it easy I am providing the 24 directions with the 8 divisions below. Just take a print out of the 8 divisions on a transparent sheet and adjust the degrees with your main door. If you prefer doing it on your own then the eight directions will be divided as given below.

North (352.5 – 37.5 degrees)
Northeast (37.5 – 82.5 degrees)
East (82.5 – 127.5 degrees)
Southeast (127.5 – 172.5 degrees)
South (172.5 – 217.5 degrees)
Southwest (217.5 – 262.5 degrees)
West (262.5 – 307.5 degrees)
Northwest (307.5 – 352.5 degrees)
