Dear Uncle Dixer: My house is facing Southwest. Is this bad in Feng Shui?
Answer: No direction is bad in Feng Shui. It depends on many factors apart from the sitting and facing of a house.
The Northeast and Southwest are on a diagonal direction. In theory, it is a direction of change from one season to another. Some people are worried that the change may affect the people living in it, so they called this direction the Ghost and Human Gate direction.
But that only sounds scary. There’s nothing more to it than its name. Don’t worry too much and don’t read Feng Shui books partially. Get a good teacher to learn Feng Shui instead.
