Is the Feng Shui of Houses Facing T-Junction Really That Bad?

If you’re into feng shui, you’ve probably heard that houses at the end of a T-junction have horrible feng shui. It is said that people who live there will experience severe loss.

Quite scary, isn’t it?

However, I’m telling you that the feng shui of those houses may NOT be as bad as you think or as people say. In some cases, they actually help the occupants to gather wealth. So if you happen to live in one, there’s no need to freak out.

I am not refuting this feng shui concept. Instead, I am providing you with an approach so you don’t fall into the fallacy of generalization. After all, there are about tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of homes in the U.S. that’s located the end of T-junctions. Not all of them who are living there are experiencing “severe loss”, are they?

To understand why, we need to first understand why houses at the end of T-junctions have bad feng shui.

Why Feng Shui Dislikes Houses at the End of T-junctions

One of the main reasons is that the Qi, or “energy”, coming directly from the road is coming straight towards the house. This type of Qi is detrimental to the occupants of the house because it’s too fast and strong. Just think of wind or water currents that are flowing at very high speeds. Physical objects within its path will definitely sustain some type of damage.

Some experts call this type of bad feng shui as “poison arrow”. For those of you unfamiliar with this term, it is usually used to describe a long, narrow, and straight pathway. This can apply to long corridors, alleys, and T-junction streets.

Long narrow alleys are also a form of feng shui’s “poison arrow”.
Long narrow alleys are also a form of feng shui’s “poison arrow”. It has no effect when it is NOT facing a window or the front door.

Origins and Historical Context

Where this concept came from is highly debated. However, there is one explanation which made sense to me.

In ancient times, streets were used mostly by foot-traffic and horses. When horses come sprinting in one direction, the horsemen can lose control and fail to stop before they run into the home or structure at the end of the junction. It’s also harder for horses to make a sharp turn when they’re traveling at a high speed, and this is especially true if the street is too narrow. The scientific term behind this is called inertia and is commonly understood as Newton’s First Law of Motion, where an object will remain at motion unless another force is applied to it.

It is difficult to make a horse
When horses are traveling at a high speed, it can be quite difficult to make a sharp turn.

Perhaps that is why houses at the end of T-junctions have bad feng shui. After all, horses can weigh up to 1,000 lbs (about 450 kg) and can do quite some damage if they come crashing into your home. This helps explain why one of the ancient remedies to this solution is to erect a boulder at the end of the junction, because a well-placed boulder can sustain heavy impacts without needing maintenance and repairs.

So what are the consequences of living at the end of a T-junction? At the end of a “poison arrow”? Here’s what’s commonly said around the web.

What Might Happen to Its Occupants

Severe Loss: The bad feng shui caused by living at the end of a T-junction can create severe loss, such as loss of job, money, or health. Most of the time, you will not be living happily in this house.

Experiencing “severe loss” makes complete sense for those that have horses (or cars) that come crashing into the house. Just the repair cost alone would be enough to bankrupt someone, and we’re not even talking about the frequency of these accidents. These monetary losses can lead to severe mental stress that’ll ultimately affect the person’s health.

Indecision: Symbolically, people living here are usually “at a crossroads”. They will have trouble making decisions and progress and movements may seem to be blocked.

Spiritual Encounters: There are also sayings where this type of house has more visitations from “spiritual beings”. It is said that spirits traveling along the road does not know how to make a turn at the T-junction, thus ending up entering the house at the end of the T-junction. Some experts use the feng shui bagua mirror as a remedy for this problem.

Whatever the consequence or reason, we know that feng shui highly advise against living at the end of a T-junction.

But that’s just what feng shui says. What about hearing from those who actually lived there?

Top Reasons Why T-junctions are Disliked

Many people have lived at the end of a T-junction to tell their tale. Though some people have credited their losses (divorce, loss of job) to the T-junction feng shui, not all have experienced “severe loss” as mentioned above.

Here are some reasons why people disliked living at the end of T-junctions, as mentioned in the forums on Trulia and Zillow:


This is the most common complaint I’ve heard from people living at the end of T-junctions.

I’m sure most of us DON’T like to be under the spotlight. That is what the police does to you when they pull you over at night. That is what the light towers are for at prison. It is used to single you out. It is to make you feel like you’re “targeted”.

You feel
Most people feel uncomfortable when a car is moving straight at them.

At night, the headlights of the incoming cars will shine directly into your house. These headlights can be quite a nuisance, especially if the T-intersection is a busy one. You are likely to be distracted because your attention will heedlessly go to the movement of those headlights or the shadows casted by those lights. At times, you may even feel like you’re the “target” of the incoming car.

Although this was the most commonly cited nuisance when living at the end of a T-junction, it can be remedied by closing the blinds or pulling the curtains together. Though some light may still shine through, these effects can be greatly minimized.


People like to live in quiet neighborhoods, and most are willing to pay a premium for it. When you live at the end of a T-junction, however, you won’t be enjoying too much tranquility.

First, it’s because there’s more traffic. Instead of one street, you are living at an intersection of two streets. This usually means more cars driving around where you live.

Second, there’s at least one stop-sign at these junctions. This means more stop and go traffic where you’ll be hearing cars braking and accelerating. Hopefully your neighbors don’t drive one of those noisy Harley Davidson motorcycle or other types of muscle cars.


Automobile speed changes bring more than just noise. It also brings an increased level of pollution.

Whenever a car starts accelerating, it pumps gasoline into the engine, resulting in an increased level of exhaust fumes.

So if you like to keep your windows open, you are likely to smell those nasty fumes. Of course, this depends on the wind direction and whether that automobile has passed a smog check.

In the long run, exposing yourself to this pollution can definitely cause a “loss in health”.


Accidents are the second most common complaint.

From a story that I’ve read on Zillow, a person used to pass by a home at a T-intersection of two major roads every day when he was attending high school. It seemed to him as if a car would hit the house every six months.

Cars crashing into the house is the one of the reasons why people don't like living at a house facing a T-junction. Springfield- Staff Photo by Mark M.Murray.
Houses facing a T-junction are more likely to be damaged by negligent drivers. Springfield- Staff Photo by Mark M.Murray.

Another person provided a story where a sleepy driver, at 3 am, didn’t notice the T-intersection with a stop sign and just kept driving. His car ran into the house at the end of the T-junction, into the living room all the way to the kitchen.

With that said, every car driving towards the house has a potential to crash into it. They can range from human negligence such as drunk driving, sleepiness, and poor eye-sight, to mechanical failures such as faulty brakes and blown tires.

Why T-junctions may NOT be as bad as most people say

If you look closely, you’ll notice that feng shui dislikes speedy Qi that rushes to the house. As for humans, they dislike the nuisances brought by automobiles and incoming traffic.

But what if we take the automobiles out of the picture? And what if we can slow down the incoming Qi?

I believe that if we can slow down the speed of the incoming Qi and traffic, living at the end of the T-junction won’t be as bad as most people say. Here’s what I mean.

Shorter Streets

A shorter street that faces the house means that the “poison arrow” is also shorter. This means that its negative effect is greatly reduced. By shorter streets, I mean that the length of the street is only about 100-200 feet (30-60 meters).

But the shorter street should not be a one-way street or a narrow street. The street should allow at least two cars that are traveling in opposite directions to easily pass by each other.

As for human concerns, shorter streets mean cars have less distance to accelerate. So even if a car is experiencing faulty brakes at that moment, the accident would not be as damaging.

Speed Allowed

By speed allowed I mean two things – the legal speed limit and the curvature of the street. The legal speed limit can deter drivers from speeding and should reduce the number of accidents as described in some of the stories above.

On the other hand, a curved road is a natural way to prevent speeding. In feng shui, the curvature would not make the Qi come rushing like a “poison arrow”. In other words, the Qi would not gain enough momentum and strength to bring “severe loss.”

“Dead” Neighborhood

What if you live at the end of a T-junction where there’s absolutely no traffic of any sort, even though the road that leads to your house is long, straight, and narrow?

Little traffic goes to this house, and the negative effects.
Little traffic goes to this house, which is unlikely to create any serious problems.

In this instance, you’ll definitely avoid the headlights, pollution, noise, and accidents. Although you may feel that the neighborhood is “dead” quiet, the tranquility and peace that you’re able to enjoy is unmatched.

Living in a “dead” neighborhood is also likely to solve the “poison arrow” issue. With less traffic, there will also be less energy pointed towards the house, which is unlikely to create any serious problems.

Some T-Junctions Actually Bring Auspicious Feng Shui

Not all T-junctions will bring the detrimental T-junction Feng Shui. First, to fit the definition of T-junction, the size of the road, size of the house, the surrounding of the road, and the surrounding buildings all need to be considered.

Also, there’s the direction of the incoming T-junction, which could bring auspicious Qi. This depends on which direction it’s coming from and time. I offer a service that can help you identify whether the T-junction will bring fortune or not.


Living at the end of T-junctions can be quite stressful for some. Most people are bothered by the noise, headlights, pollution, and the potential for accidents from incoming cars. Plus, feng shui says that it brings “severe loss” to the occupants of that house.

However, not all T-junctions are the same, and not all of them bring nuisance and bad feng shui.

If the street leading to the house is short, curved, or has minimal traffic, there will be less energy pointed towards the house, which and unlikely to bring any negative effects.

Hey Victor Chueng,

What about a T-intersection where the road is a one way road? Basically moving away from the house?

Hey Chu, nice diagram!

It looks like two one-way streets. Though some would say that the “poison arrow” is still there, I wouldn’t worry too much about it if I were you. Plus, you won’t have potential accidents because traffic is moving away from you!

To be accurate, it is best to consult a professional so curvatures, size of street, size of front yard, etc. are all taken into consideration. Cheers!

Hi Victor, could you help me look into the house. The address is 42 Cleveland square W2 London. It has a 100m plus length road leading to the house, if you look at it on the map, it actually shows that the road is slightly slanted. Traffic in the area is low as most cars only come here to get into their homes as This is mainly a residential area only. What can I do to reduce the Shaqi if any? Also, I only use this home as a vacation home, will that have any impact on me and my family?

Hi Michelle,
Planting some bushes/trees can help reduce the Shaqi. Some masters say this will help, but the shaqi wouldn’t be completely blocked.
Good thing you only use it as a vacation home. You won’t be impacted if you don’t stay in the house for long!


Planning to buy a house near mom with altzheimer to help her out. A house near is avaliable but it is last near dead end street. The house is big and sunny but it is last on the street. The entrance is not straingt to tje steet. Should we look for sth else?

Hi Anna,
It is not possible to give you advice without a full audit of the house. Being last on the street and entrance is not straight to the street are both good factors so far.

Hi Victor
Is it bad to have a T junction view from the apt balcony?

Hi Archana,
This depends on several factors, and sometimes facing T junction can be a good thing. Let me know if you need my help:

Hi Victor, I live at the end of a t junction and since I have been here I had been terribly depressed at the beginning of our rental lease we have been here for approximately 18 months and first I was hit by depression and dark moods for the first half of the 18 months but in the last 9 months I have lost a sister a brother in december died by drowning in his pool at home 12 days after that my partner had a major truck accident and ended up having major surgery on his skull as he had caved it in , the February another brother passed away ,my partner’s pay is atleast $400 less a week and my dad just passed away on the 15th of this month and I am currently going through bone marrow biopsies to check for blood cancers , I quite literally can’t wait to move as enough is enough and a new beginning is needed . That is my experience in a t junction home definitely one of the worst times of my life so much loss

Thanks for sharing your experience, Peggy, and I’m sorry for all that’s happening to you. Were all your family members living in the same house?
It sounds like all these accidents are related to the “spilling of blood” (血光), which is one result the Feng Shui of T-junction house can manifest. Wishing you the best!

Hi Victor
I hope all is well.
I am about to acquire a house thats on the end of a T-Junction thats also facing another house on the other end, is this a good vibe? The simple diagram shows hows it like…

Hi Ehl,
More factors need to be considered than this. Let me know if you need my service:

Hi Victor Chueng,

What if there is roundabout at the T junction, it will make cars reduce the speed.
The house is also slightly missing out the point of direction of the road.


Hi Insu,

You’re on the right track! If there is a roundabout that reduces the speed, the energy won’t come “rushing” in. And if the house is missing out the point of direction of the road, then you have nothing to worry.


What if the T junction house has landscape plot maintained by builder.Does it still affect.Is shared driveway also considered as T junction.
Am referring to plot 65 here.
We will be using shared driveway of plot 64.

Hey lakshmi, from the layout, there’s nothing to worry if you’re in plot 65. Shared driveway is still a T-junction, but its effects are nothing compared to a busy street. Also, the landscape will help soften the effects of a T junction. Hope this helps!

Hi victor. Is there an email address I can use to send you some details. Pls let me know

Subscribe to blog and I will email you.

Hi Victor,
We are looking to buy a home which is on T junction. It is slightly off T junction. Half of the home looks at the t junction road.
Please see below, the depiction of it the t junction and the home (X1) we are interested in. Other Xs are neighboring homes.
The front door is also facing the T. Both the roads are two way street with the dead-on road being only around 250 ft long. Please note that this is inside a community with very low speed limits. The front door is facing approximately NE. The road runs NE as well. Right side of the road is a kids park and left side are other homes within the community.

Please advice on how this t junction would affect us or not.

Hi Victor,

The text diagram did not show up properly in my last posting. Please see the picture of the lot (177) and the t road. As I mentioned before, it is only 250 ft long, probably a very low speed limit 2 way street and these roads are within the community.


Hey Bangari, it looks like the incoming traffic just missed the main entrance of your house, so you will be fine. Plus, it looks like there’s a small walk-way and trees at the end of that T-junction, which will help shield and protect you from the incoming Qi or drivers that don’t follow the speed limit. Hope this helps!


What about this house? The street slop up and is share drive way between two houses.


Hey Jien, the house looks fine because the drive way doesn’t lead straight to the front door. House looks great!


Hi Victor, I have just bought a house right in a cross roads, it has a mini roundabout out front so the traffic has to slow and a beautiful view out front of a common and is lined with trees. It’s south west facing and I want to put a low wall and some plants to shield the house. Will this work?

Hi Katy,
I wouldn’t say that it’ll work without fully seeing the place, as there may be other issues present. But yes, the idea is right!

Hey Victor, my house is located in a t junction road inside a subdivision. I have built wood fence and metal fence for my garage facing the roads. Is that good enough to protect my house from negative elements ?

Hi Victoria,
Fences will help with incoming Qi. Sometimes incoming Qi could be a good thing depending on its direction:


Thank you for your information. It is really helpful.

Could you help me having a look at the house in this link. in fact, 2/3 of the house ( main part) is facing the road ( low traffic, inside the community). May be the picture is not clear but in real life, the house is NE at T junction.

Thank you so much.
Minh Nhat

Hi Minh,

Low traffic is good. One thing to look for – does the road lead straight to the front door? If not, you’re all good! If so, try creating some barriers – like a wall of bushes.



Hi, I live in a house where 2/3 is on a T. The street leading to the T is curved and short. House is facing east and the front door is facing northeast of the house. The front of the house is also a casita and the front entrance is behind the casita next to the courtyard. Hopefully my explanation made sense. Just want to know if this is okay. I also placed a feng shui mirror (octagon shape) on top of the front door. Thank you.

I forgot to share that the 2/3 of the house facing the T is the 3 car garage and the garage door is facing directly to the street.

Hey Vicky, you don’t really need to worry about it. The street is curved and short, so incoming Qi won’t come rushing at you. This alone is enough.

Plus, it faces your garage door and doesn’t really disrupt your living. Also, it sounds like the casita gives you another layer of protection.

You’re in good shape!


Thank you for your prompt response. Now I feel much better about my home. I also read that since the garage door is facing the intersection and there is a room above the garage, it gives negative energy to the home. Is that true? If that’s the case, can a bagua mirror help?

Hey Vicky, you shouldn’t worry too much about the intersection. As for the room above the garage, I’ve written a post about it:

Hope this answers your question!


Do you have any article about west group people living in a east group house?


Hey Jien,
I don’t have any articles about that besides my ebook. But here’s what I can tell you according to my experience: your situation should be OK for a short period of time, assuming that everyone in your family belongs to west group living in a east group house (also assuming that our “east group house” definition is the same).

If the breadwinner belongs to east group but everyone else belongs to west group, and you’re living in a east group house, then you’re OK.

Hope this helps.


Hi Victor,

I am hesitating to purchase a property which is in a new community being constructed. As you enter the house, its an open area which leads to the backyard door. The kitchen and living room windows all face the backyard and a T-section road with a stop sign. However, there will be a wall between the backyard and T-section road.

This is a two story house with bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom is on the side that T-section road is facing.

Could you please advise if this property is worth investment or it is no good, in terms of energy, health and prosperity.

Thank you,

Hi Mary,

Without an expert looking at the house, it’s really hard to answer your question. But here’s what I can tell you from what you described:

The front door shouldn’t lead straight to the backyard door (although it can easily be cured by putting a divider/tall shelf in between). The T-section road has a wall divider and does not lead to the front door, so you’re OK with that.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need a consultation. I can refer someone to you.


Does the location of the stair matter? A single story home that have a stair to go down to the basement and not up. The stair well entrance is not directly facing the entrance but is very visible like a hole.

The floor plan is very open.

Is that bad?


Hey Jien,
The location of the stair does matter, and it’s good that the entrance is not directly facing the entrance. It’s hard for me to tell without seeing it.

I suggest that you hire a Feng Shui professional to take a look. That way, you can have all your questions answered. Let me know if you need a referral.



I think I asked about west group vs. east group house. How critical is the grouping? Is there way to alter the color or front to accomodatr when the house facing does not match?


Hi Jien,
I think I replied to your earlier question about east vs. west group. The grouping is critical in terms of eight mansions, but it’s not everything because many other considerations are needed.
When the house’s face direction doesn’t match, use the feng shui five element of the front door to match it with your five element (by birth year). If the five element is not a match, along with the east vs. west group analysis, then there is a problem. Colors, in my opinion, does minimal influence.

Hi Victor,
I am planning to buy a house and recently view a house at the end of a dead end road (refer diagram below). The house is a double storey semi-D (Lot 1556) with its front door facing east (facing Lot 1557). Is there a problem with the dead end road?
Also, the fencing at the back and right side (bordering 1859) is very high, consisting of 7′ concrete wall and another 2′ iron rod fencing on top, making it 9′ in total height. The fencing in front of the house bordering Lot 1557 is also concrete wall but of normal height of 5′. Is there a problem with the high fencing at the back and side of the house?
My ‘kua’ number is 1. Is it advisable to buy this house?

Hi Paul,

First, I do not think I can give solid advice just by commenting (I can’t even read the diagram), so don’t use this information on whether to buy this house. But as for your question, being at a dead end road should be OK if there is not much traffic, and the road is not too long and narrow. Tall fences at the back and on the side are OK.

If you really want feng shui to help you decide on your purchase, I suggest you find a consultant to help. Do you need a referral?

Hope this helps.


Thanks Victor.

Hi victor, your article is very helpful. Thanks! I am considering buying a house (A ) right next to a T-junction house (B). The front doors of A and B are facing north-east, and the drive way of B is facing the two-way community road (about 100 meters long) in a quiet neighborhood. A is not in the T-juntion but I am afraid that A will suffer more or less from the the same problems: noise, light and air pollution, hazard, etc. What is your opinion? P.S. I have two small kids.

Hi Yang,

You’re right about suffering from the same kind of problems with (B), but the degree of problem will be less. If the street is not too busy, then you’ll be fine.

Buying a house is a big decision, so don’t use my comment as the only consideration!


hi Victor.

How about for apartments on the 8th floor? The main door of the apartment is directly facing the T junction, does a higher floor negate the impact?

Hi Stan,
In my opinion, higher floor does negate the impact. Although some experts say that all occupants of the building will get affected, its influence is not as strong compared to houses in the same situation.

Hi Victor,

My husband and I saw a house in 87 Blydenburg Ave Smithtown, NY 11787 but it is directly in the tzone, The street of the tzone seems to curve and its short. Its busy street in the day but quiet at night. The door might be facing the street slightly. I posted the link below. However, everything else about the house is perfect, its nearby a great school district etc. Whats your opinion about this? Would this have negative feng shui?,-73.1899035,3a,75y,322.65h,72.46t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sgZPbTAZPCf5wA9rqqQPu5Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!6m1!1e1

Hi Nimfa,
It looks like the house is OK because incoming traffic coming straight would miss the house. Here’s a test you can use – try standing right in front of your front door. When incoming cars come, do you feel threatened/uncomfortable? If you feel fine, then you’re good!

Thank you so much Victor!!!

Hi Victor!
so as long as the road doesn’t go directly into the front door, I should be good right? The house I’m interested in is at the end of a T intersection but the road goes into like half the drive way

Thanks a bunch

Hi Tony,
Yes, you’re right. As long as you don’t mind the lights and other nuisances that I mentioned in this post, you will be ok.

Hi Victor,

Thanks for the info. Road is more of L-Shape and If the home has 30% facing road, would that be okay?

Hi Sri,
Assuming the L-shaped road is more curved, the energy would not be “rushing” as fast – just think of automobile traffic. And as long as the road doesn’t face your front door, you should be ok, besides the other nuisances mentioned in this post.

Hi Pagiym,
It does seem that the road leads straight to the garage and front door, which is what you should be avoiding. Plus, the road is pretty straight.
Try standing in front of the garage/front door facing towards the road, do you feel comfortable? Also, you might want to ask about previous occupants and how they fared. Good luck!

Hi Victor,

Can you take a look at our house? It’s located right on T junction and our drive way and 2 rooms above the drive way directly faces the road.
Our house faces the road but at the end of the road (3 blocks down) there’s a house that’s facing ours. See on this image (our house is starred):
Is there any advice that you can give us to make our house better feng shui?
Also it’s a quiet street and not many traffic coming from front of our house and most cars slow down significantly or completely stop before turning to our street

Thank you!

Hi Sue,
Good to hear that your street is quiet. And it looks like your front door is not facing the street, so don’t be too worried about it! Further, assuming that you drive on the right side of the street, the incoming traffic would just avoid your house!
As for the house on the other end, don’t worry too much about it. It’s quite far away from you!

Hi Fernie,
Looks like the street has a little curve, which helped soften up the poison arrow. Also, there’s a front yard with two trees in front, which can also help block some of the incoming Qi.

Hi victor,
Your article is very helpful. Thank you.

My husband and I have recently looked at the house situated at 1/8 Packard st, Keilor downs, VIC 3023, the very first house facing the road. The house is beautiful but hesitating to buy this due to curved T junction (street coming towards the house is Hispano drive) . An old house is refurbished and made up like a brand new house. Please visit this link to see the house. The entrance door of the house is exactly facing the T junction, however the door is approximately 8 meters away from the T junction. The gap covered with front lawn and drive way. House is facing West direction. We are in dilemma whether to buy or not. Please give us some suggestions.

I will look forward for your reply.


Hi Anitha,
I went to Google street view, and it looks like there were trees in between the T-junction and your front door. This MAY solve this issue.
Buying a house is a big decision. You should definitely consider hiring a trusted consultant to identify other Feng Shui issues if there are any! A good one can tell what was happening with the occupants just by looking at the house.

Thank you very much Victor. This will definitely help us solve our problem.


Hi Victor!
Where planing to do a house construction early next year ,our lot is dirrectly facing the street, the road is quite long but not too bc because some lot were still not occupied yet.. according to our house plan the road was dirrectly facing the garage and there is a door on the second floor facing the road which is our family area.. what do you think about it? Any advice? Thanks in advance..

Hi Seth,
Cures for T-junction facing your home can be tricky. Having the road leading to garage is a better than having it lead to your front door.
There are ways to cure it, such as having trees or something to be placed in between. I suggest you find an expert to take a look at your home before you commit to construction!

Hi Brian,
From the maps, it looks like the house just missed the T-junction. Stand in front of the house and look towards the street and see how you feel.

Hi Victor,
We live in an 1800s house that is on top of a hill but at a T junction. We face a mountain on the west so the sun sets there.
My house is higher than the street level so you have to go up like 10 steps. But it is centered to face the street so: main door, living room, dining room, master bedroom, bathroom And my baby’s room face the junction.
Also I have a huge tree in my front yard. It is double the height of the house.
What do you suggest besides the bagua mirrors to protect it?

Hi Daniela,
The huge tree in the front yard will protect you. Some people like adding waist-high bushes or other “natural” wall to protect your space and make you feel safe.

I had a question regarding house that we are trying to buy it is located at T junction so there is a main road facing front door of house. here is link of the property,+Frisco,+TX+75035/@33.1756705,-96.7439277,870m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x864c15fa5be7a4a9:0x366e63ee8566915a!8m2!3d33.175666!4d-96.741739
question – is it good for buying or will it have negative effects on health and wealth
Please advice thanks


Hi NS,
It seems that the T-junction just missed the front door. Also, there seems to be trees to help block the incoming Qi from the T-junction, making this property OK, but ONLY in terms of T-junction. If you want answers about negative effects on health and wealth, the internal Feng Shui should be considered as well. Let me know if you need an expert to take a look.

Hi Victor,

I am interested in the property 16 / 17 in the below link: (Development Layout)

House 16 and 17 seems to be partially having T-junction. Please could you advise which property has no impact of T-junction effects?


Hi Ramananda,
Both houses are about the same.
Here’s the test you can use: stand in the front door of both houses and face the street. Whichever one feels less of an impact would be your choice.

Hi Victor,

Can you help me out? The community is townhomes. The home layouts are with 2 car garage and a soild front door to the side. Walking straight through the home would bring onto the deck over looking a pond. On the second level is the master bedroom with one window center over the garage.
We need help picking between lots 0245 and 0243. 0245 brings and open view from the master window however is this to much for the incoming?


Thank you!

Hi Tom,
The pond wouldn’t be a problem. Just make sure there’s no mirror facing it.
On the other hand, looks like there’s a small T-junction on 0245 from the streets within the community. That’s what you should be more concerned about. Considering that the street is quite long, the impact could be bigger. Hopefully it doesn’t face the front door.
Also, you should consider other aspects of Feng Shui rather than just these. The interior of the two could be quite different!

Hi Victor,

Please see this picture:

We are considering lot #41. The house would face the T junction for the most part. To the left (dark grey line) will be a walking path. Is this all okay for feng shui? What if we put the garage/driveway by where the T junction is and the front door more towards the right so it is further away from the T junction? Or would the driveway at the T junction make it look too much like a continuation of the road? I’m hoping the walking path would help alleviate some of the negative energy from the T junction, but it is kind of off to the side.

Thank you!

Hi Tara,
You got a good point. A driveway may seem like a continuation of the road. Using a different color may be able to do the job.
And just like you said, placing the front door further away from the T junction is also a good idea.
From the image, the road seems a little curvy, so the incoming energy is not as strong.

hi im planning to buy house which is facing North east and T junction, the T junction is facing my entrance and its death end which is back lane of 2 row houses. is this okay to buy?

Hi Thila,
In terms of the info you provided, you definitely have a T-junction Feng Shui problem. It can be solved in various ways, such as using trees, bushes, stones, or some sort of obstruction.
However, buying a house is a big decision. There are many other factors to consider other than the T-junction. My advice is to consult with an expert to see whether the house is a good fit for you or not.

Good morning Victor.
I plan to purchase a house on a quiet neighborhood, but suddenly got scared when I remembered you talking about the poison arrow. I would like to ask you opinion on the location.
Thank you very much.
I’m also looking at another house on the same street. It missed the “arrow” narrowly hitting the fencing of the house.
Thank you for your advice. More power to you!

Hi Chris,
I can’t really tell much from the images. But if poison arrow is your concern, just make sure it doesn’t lead towards your front door.
When buying a house, the surrounding Feng Shui (like poison arrow) is just one thing to consider. I suggest you find an expert to take a look before you make the big decision!

Hi Daniela,
It looks like the street leading to the house is a bit curved, so the energy of the poison arrow is lessened (it’s still there). Also, it looks like it doesn’t lead directly to the front door, so you should be ok.
However, the road is just one factor. You should also take a look at the interior Feng Shui and see whether the house is suitable for you and your family. Good luck!

I am really concern about moving in and have bad luck!!

Thank you very much Victor!

Hi Victor, I am interested in the house in the link below. I dont know what to make of the roads here ?

I am seeing it in person tomorrow. The Front door is on the side .
thank you

8 Rabaul Street Lithgow NSW 2790 – House for Sale #124572598 …

Hi Stessy,
I tried looking at Google Earth, but the image wasn’t clear.
Try standing on the front door facing outside. Does the road lead to you? Do you feel threatened? If not, then the T-junction should be ok.

My boyfriends family is most likely buying a house with two back apartments (both side by side and a floor higher than the house in front) that are on a t-junction. From what I can tell on google maps, the road flows towards the living room window that is to the right of the front door. In regards to the two back apartments, it seems to be flowing more directly towards the apartment on the right.
I told them that t-junctions are not feng shui and they intend to put Bagua mirrors above the doors. They also intend to put up a fence around the property and plant life. There is a large tree in the front yard and two in the strip in front of the sidewalk.
Will that help?

Going to try my hand at a diagram:

Hi Alexandra,
I can’t picture your situation in my mind (apartments and houses together?). But yes, plant life and fences will help. And if the T-junction doesn’t hit the front door, I suggest NOT to use a Bagua mirror.

Well the diagram failed as it was chopped in half. Sorry 🙁

Hello there! Our house is right infront of a two way short street and the front door is right infront of the opposite way. I’m thinking about putting up a short fence! Would this help maybe!

Hi Joanne,
Yep, a short fence would definitely help!

Hi Victor…… I live in a flat where the corridor is forming a T in front of the door……teh straight corridoor emerging from the main door is around 3 mtr long and there is perpendicular cooridoor to it……. Should i be worried?

Hi Nidhi,
I don’t really understand your drawing, but your corridors are fine. 3 meters isn’t that long. Just make sure there isn’t a door at the end of the corridor.

Please tell me whether the location 7.009009, 79.969642 is good to buy which is facing T junction ASAP. Thank u.

Hey Gan,
I can’t really tell from the map. If it doesn’t face your front door, you’ll be ok.

Hello, i am planning to buy a property but its in T- intersection. Iam worried about bad fortune. What do you think please let me know.thanks

Hi Jen,
T-junction has the potential to bring bad fortune. However, its effects are greatly reduced if it doesn’t face your front door. So try standing in front of the front door and look out to check.

Hi Victor! My husband and I are thinking about buying a gorgeous house that is on a low traffic T intersection. It has the garage door, the formal dinning and a 2 rooms upstairs facing the T intersection and a good size garden with a tree on it at front. The kitchen and the living room area are facing the back garden. The back yard is big but face a luxury apartments… We are thinking that we can plant some trees to interrupt their sights to the house…
We really love the planning and all the features of this houses but trying to figure out what was keeping buyers to offer in this house we learn about feng shui…What do you think? It’s a bad investment?

Hi Florence,
I can’t really give good advice without really looking at the property. But just a couple of pointers:
1) If the T-intersection doesn’t face the front door, and with the tree, you’re in good shape.
2) Planting trees to block the sight from apartments is a good idea.
3) Ideally, the living room area should be at the front of the house.
That’s all I can give you without looking at the property. Let me know if you need a consultation.

Hi Victor! Thank you so much! We felt like home the moment we enter, we felt light and happy so, I’m going to do as much as I need to block the bad energy that could enter from the front and back door but…The feeling we felt from the neighborhood , street and the house was warm and friendly.
Today we went again and I did the test of looking at the street from the door and I just felt happy. So I’m gonna plant trees, put a small fountain at the entrance and learn more stuff from your blog.
I do not bealive that just for living on a T intersection your life it’s going to be bad
I do bealive you have to learn about it and make a difference:)

The adress is —– I would love to have your opinion Vic.

Hi Florencia,
In terms of the T-intersection, the tree helps. Whether the house will be a good fit for you will require more work.

Hello Victor,
I am interested in a lot that faces a T intersection. I am not entirely sure if this lot has the bad effects of a T. It is lot 55 facing Espina in this link below:

It’s a short street facing into the house with just 3 homes in each side. The street hits part of the garage and there will be room right behind and above the garage.

Appreciate your thoughts on this lot.


Hi Rajesh,
It looks like the street just barely missed the house. But just to be sure, stand in the front door and see if you feel any incoming traffic coming your way. If so, having plantations in front to block the view would do.

Hi Victor,
We are planning to buy a lot in an exclusive subdivision. It’s not a T junction lot but more of an L junction. Also, only about half of it faces the road. The lot looks like this:
Is this lot not advisable to buy?

Hi Francis,
You’d have to look at whether the T junction faces the front door. Also, it looks as if the road is curved and not straight, so the incoming Qi is a less potent than other junctions.
This is all I can tell you. Whether it’s a good buy in terms of Feng Shui depends on many other factors.

hello Sir, my house is in the T junction exactly on the center of the road but the location is inside the subdivision where not busy traffic and not much car passing though our street. Please let me know about your opinion regarding my house. Thanks

Hi Darwin,
In this case, it is much better. Just watch to see if it’s facing your front door or your windows. If it is, plant trees or find a way to cover the junction and you’ll be fine.

Sophia Ignacio-Prevatte

Hi Victor,

My brother is very interested in buying a nice house in a cul-de-sac. However the road happens to dead end into the house. Please see the link below. I’ve had a bad experience similar but my road was coming downhill to me, so a much faster Qi and nothing was slowing the poison arrow that lead straight to our door. Although, a Bengua mirror gift that was placed in the huge front window I believed worked until my (now) ex-husband removed it because he said it was all BS.

This house my brother’s looking at is on a flat road and wondering if bushes or even a tree planted on front would repel the poison arrow. And even perhaps a Bengua mirror on top of the front door or garage…?? Thoughts….? Or should he just pass on it?

Thanks a bunch!

Hi Sophia,
You got that right. Bushes or even a tree planted in front can block the incoming Qi. Here’s the same concept as mentioned by Uncle Dixer:
You shouldn’t decide whether to buy a house just based on this. There are many other factors that you should consider, such as when its built, the sitting and facing direction, and it’s relationship with the date of birth of the occupants.

Sophia Ignacio-Prevatte

Sorry… meant Bagua mirror… ugh… 😛

Hi Victor,
This house we are looking to buy, the drive way is at the T section. its a private drive way. is this still a problem or can we create landscape around the front door?

thank you


Hi Caryn,
It’s better if the T junction doesn’t lead towards the front door. Creating landscape is a great way to mitigate this.

Hi victor
So I don’t think I explained it well. So a private driveway that leads straight to the front door is still considered a road? Or is a driveway not the same as a public road?
It goes straight up to the house. Is it best not to buy or can be changed with landscaping?

Hi Caryn,
I’m not sure how long the driveway is. Ideally, a private driveway (inside a gate) is curved, with landscaping like a water fountain in the middle. It is not the same as a public road, and the incoming Qi will definitely be less.
Curved roads leading to the door is favored. It represents more of nature and is preferred by most people.

Hi Victor,

We are looking at this house – The house is well maintained and we like the layout and over all flow. But is located in a T-intersection in a relatively quiet residential area. Not very busy but there is a stop sign right there.
Do you see a problem here

Hi Ganesh,
Speaking only in terms of the T-junction, it does seem that the incoming traffic would go straight into the front door. If you really like this house, how about planting a tree in the front yard?

Hi Victor,

Thanks for the advice that you have been offering.
This house faces a T-junction with not much traffic, but lights from vehicles could be an issue.
Do you see any problems?:

If lights are an issue, try adding blinds/covers on your windows. Another way is to plant trees at the end of the T-junciton.

Hi Victor,

I left several times comment, but no posted..

Hi Victor

I would like to know bad Qi is coming into my house.
My house is facing a T-junction, actually two garage doors face the T-junction, not a front door.
My address is — Canada.
My neighborhood is very quiet, small, and low traffic.
Could you please give me your advice.

Thank you


Hey Jeremy,
I saw your question. I’ve replied to you via email. I’ve also removed your address in the above comment.

Hi! Thanks for you’re info! If a T-Junction is going straight to front door, I see that one remedy may be too plant a tree or bushes in front. However, isn’t a tree blocking the front door also bad feng shui?

Hi Leenie,
In the case of T-junction, the tree is meant to reduce the negative impact of the incoming Qi. If there’s no strong incoming Qi like a T-junction, then the tree would blocking the “good” that should be coming in. Hope this answers your question!

I had never heard of this before until we recently put our house up for sale, Asians and India buyers say they won’t buy the house due to the T in the road, anything a homeowner can do to attract these buyers even with the T in the road directly in front of our house? We live in Redmond, WA in Microsoft’s backyard so quite a few buyers are Asian and or India

Hi Liz,
It won’t be an easy task. Try planting bushes and/or a tree (not too big) at the end of the T-junction as it can help alleviate some of this Feng Shui concern. More nature also makes your property look more appealing!


Victor, I stood on my front porch and took a photo the T forms in front of our living room windows not directly to our front door and there is a tree at end of driveway does this help at all? Or should we plant some more bushes or trees. I read if the T forms directly to your front door thats a problem but its not dorectly in front of our front door! Liz

Hi there,
The effects are less when it is not facing your front door, and even lesser when there’s a tree at the end of the driveway (so yes, it helps). If you still get bothered by it, then feel free to plant some more bushes/trees to your liking.

Hi Victor, could you help me look into the house. The address is 42 Cleveland square W2 London. It has a 100m plus length road leading to the house, if you look at it on the map, it actually shows that the road is slightly slanted. Traffic in the area is low as most cars only come here to get into their homes as This is mainly a residential area only. What can I do to reduce the Shaqi if any? Also, I only use this home as a vacation home, will that have any impact on me and my family?

Hi, my house is on slight t junction, the road is not facing a front door however it is facing a huge window, is this still bad?

Hi Jemae,
It’s still bad but not as bad. You can try planting some trees/bushes to obstruct the window’s view to the T-junction. That should lessen its effect.

Hi Victor,

We are looking to buy a house at the end of T-Section. Its a inner street in the HOA community and there is not much traffic. Parking on the street is restricted so there are less guests roaming around. The street faces the garage door and there is a walk-path on the side that leads to the main door. Above garage, we have 2 bedrooms.

This is the house –

What are you thoughts on this house?

Hi Arun,
There is one master who told me that if the T-junction road is bigger than the actual house, you won’t really get a problem, like what I see in the image. (Not sure if other masters would say the same)
My suggestion is that you ask how the previous owners fared when living there. Ask if their life improve or went downhill? It’s hard to get a straight answer, though.

Hi Victor, thanks for responding! As you said, its hard to get a straight answer from the previous owner when they are trying to sell the house. They have lived there for 10+ years and are very elderly. Do you think its ok given that the door does not face the T junction (Its on the side of the house via a walk way)? Also, there is a small Tree which hides the walk way to the door (Visible in the street view of the map). Also the master bedroom is not at the top of garage (the guest bedrooms are).


Hi Arun,
With the front door not facing the T-junction, the effects are definitely lessened. The only thing you need to watch out for is time. In some years, the effect of the T-junction can be quite potent. Definitely get a trusted master to take a look if you can!

Hi Victor,
I plan to buy a house in a gated village. It is facing a street that is parallel to the village perimeter wall. On the other side of the wall is a t junction and it can be seen from the window on the second floor of the house. Can that be considered as a house facing t junction and therefore, inauspicious? Appreciate your advice.

Hi Marco,
I’ll need more information to answer your question properly. Let me know if you need my service:

Hi Victor,

We are interested in buying house but its in a t Junction, the Living room’s Window is on the path of the incoming traffic..
But the Main Door appears to be sightly away on the path of incoming traffic but if we consider the outgoing direction then the door frame is in its path.

I have sent the property details in the email.. Can you please advice..

Thank you…

Wow. I refer to my 30s as my tragic years. I never knew that living in house at a T junction was bringing me the bad luck. Severe loss is an understatement for what I experienced in that house. Financial ruin and death of children. Everything improved after we moved out of that house. Don’t ever buy a house at a T junction.

Hi RM,
Great to hear that everything’s going great! The strength of the T-junction also strengthens and weakens, depending on what year it is relative to its incoming direction.

Question :

[| |]

In this ‘0’ is the plot I have option for, Do you think it would be bad idea to get this plot for house ?

Hi Mp3mahes,
Based on your drawing, it looks like the road just missed the 0. I cannot comment whether it’s a good idea to buy this house because I know nothing about you or the house.

Hi Victor,

I’m looking at buying this home but unsure due to the T in the road. The road that leads up to it is not long [only one block]. If you have any feedback, I would really appreciate it. Here is the address:

409 Brighton Loop, Los Alamos, NM 87547

Thank you so much in advance,


Hi Miguel,
It does look like the property is on the T junction. Although it seems it barely missed the front door, having the road point straight towards the windows isn’t ideal either.

Hi Venice,
Just in terms of T-junction, this house does not pass. I cannot comment on other Feng Shui issues.

Hello Victor,
I just found your webpage and I am terrified! I just put a deposit down for lot 80 (link for image below). I can still back out, thought. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE advise!

Hi Cobugi,
Looks like the road is short, but it’s still in front of a road. Without knowing more, I cannot advise you on whether you should back out.

Hi Victor,
Thanks for the reply. We ended up backing out of lot 80, and going with lot 98 instead, which is also T-junction-ish.
I would really appreciate your opinion on this lot.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Cobugi,
The same concept applies. Check if the road goes straight to your front door. If not, the effects of T-junction are lessened, but still there.

Hi Victor,

I am thinking of purchasing a home but it lies at a T junction intersection. The T junction hits at the garage. Also, the driveway is U-shaped. Any tips on if the driveway helps the situation any ?

Hi Holly,
If you’re talking about a cul-de-sac, the key here is that there’s enough space for the car to turn around. You can refer to this answer:

I am interested in buying a home that is at the end of a T intersection. Would it help the good energy if our neighborhood has a park at one end at the beginning of the T & our house at the other? The street is about 280 ft. Also it is in a gated community, not much daily or crazy traffic.
Thank you

Hi Jessica,
If there’s not that many daily traffic, then the effects are lessened. Having a park is always more comfortable than just houses. Also, 280 feet doesn’t seem to long and wouldn’t be too big of an issue, assuming that the road isn’t too narrow as well.

Hi Victor,

The house facing the T intersection in the following linke:,+San+Jose,+CA+95124/@37.2392201,-121.9351404,60m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x808e343ab17b6dc5:0xad6e34a7e85fc385!8m2!3d37.2394211!4d-121.9350006. There is a large elevated landscaped garden in front of the house that leads to the main door. But, I think the main door faces south direction and also is on the T intersection. Is it safe to own this house?

Hi Ash,
Ideally not. But if the landscape is elevated enough, the effects of the T intersection will be lessened, but not eliminated.

Hi Victor,

I really liked one house which is in T-intersection. Here is the link,+Milpitas,+CA+95035
There is a garden and tree in the front of the house. Garage, kitchen windows & living room windows are facing the T-intersection, not the main door.

Garage is in south-east direction.

Is it safe to own this house?

+ Moreover there is a freeway after one street from backyard. (There isn’t any traffic noise inside the house)

Hi Simarn,
Although the effects of the T-junction is lessened because it doesn’t face the front door, I personally wouldn’t move into that house. But don’t take my word for it.

Hi Victor,

My Bad on the above direction. Here’s the correction.

Garage is in South-west direction
Main Entrance is in North-west direction

Please let me know is it safe to own this house?

Hi Simram,
My answer is the same, and I cannot give you a good recommendation without a full Feng Shui audit.

Hello Victor,
We are planning to buy a home that is situated on a curved road. I am adding the Google maps link for better details.
The house is located on a quiet street and there is not much traffic even during the day time. Kindly suggest if it is ok from Feng-shui point of view,

Hi Vivek,
Looks like your house is ok, it just avoided the incoming traffic.

Hello Victor,
We are considering to buy this property. We love the area, it is close to school and shopping. However, the house that we like is located at a T intersection.

Below is the link to the property:

Is it good for buying or will it have negative effects on health and wealth?
Please advice. Thank you.


Hi Ruthie,
I personally would avoid houses that are on the T-intersection. The negative effects are not limited to health and wealth. The effects are worse if the road leads straight to your front door.
But if you really like the house, please don’t get a professional Feng Shui review before making your decision.

Hi Victor!!
This post & comments were so helpful! Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom!!
We just put an offer for a house & was wondering if you could take a quick look at the location to see if this T-junction would be too bad. That would be amazing!!
Here’s the link:

Hi Bianca,
It’s a little hard to tell from the view. Just know that the effects are worst if the road comes straight to the front door.

Got it!
Thank you so much!!!

Hello Victor. This is so interesting to me. To be honest i never heard of this til today. We’re in the process of buying a new home. I showed a picture of it to my Vietnamese friend and his reaction was not what i wanted. He mentioned that the Entrance to my front door should not be a direct one. I’m reading the article above and it’s amazing me. Where can I upload a picture so you can tell me your interpretation?

Hi Claudia,
From what I see, the house is ok because (1) there’s quite a distance from the road to the house and (2) the road does not go straight to this house, but the house next to it.

Hi Victor,

We are considering renting a home that has a T intersection but 1. its curved, 2 it is towards the garage. picture
the last picture shows the t-intersection.
Do you have any insight for this?

Thank you so much! Really appreciate it.

I forgot to mention that the front door faces East and there is another street that goes straight into that shared driveway hitting the T intersection into the garage. thanks!

Hi qk,
If it’s curved and towards garage, its effects are minimal. You should be good!

I want to ask that my house is west facing and entrance is in the corner of the west facing plot towards south , also there is a colony road which is not busy faces towards gate .
Is there any defect ?
If yes ,what can be the solution for that .

Thanks in advance

Hi Sumit,
From the little information that you provided, I don’t see any defect.

Hi Victor, thanks for the very practical solutions and the article.
How about this house three Five seven two, Gibson ave , santa clara?

-This is a the T junction and a eichler house (meaning the front is full of glass walls )
-House is north facing
-Entrance is also north facing, towards the T- street.

Any remedies for this house?

Hi Pavi,
T-junction can hardly be remedied. The best you can do is to put some trees or bushes that acts as a fence. You’d also have to consider the direction of where the T-junction is coming at you. It’s best to get a consultant to help you with this.

Hi Victor,
This property that i am interested looks like is on a T. Can you confirm. The owner of the home is a chinese gentleman and he has painted the front door red. Here it is on redfin:

It does seem like the main door and garage have missed the direct “T” ing, but i am not sure. Can you look at the google map and give me some pointers 461 Breckenridge Dr, Aurora, IL 60504

Hi Rochella,
From Google Maps, it does seem that the house has missed the T. You’re good!

Hi Victor!!! I am currently looking to build a house but the lots are on the T junction like the lot 18 and lot 100 they are both slightly to the right if you look from the street. Is it going to be a problem? Thank you!

Ooopss! there’s no option to download the map.. Please email me back so I can respond with the map. Thank you!

Hi Victor,

Our property is located inside the subdivision but the lot is in T junction, the lot no. is Block 1 Lot 17, we choose this lot following my husband (01) and mine (17) birthday. The maindoor and small fence are both facing the T junction. My family is suffering financial and health problem for two years after we transfer in this house, we are thinking to give up this property. Hoping for your advise. Do you think that putting bagua mirror outside my house can help?

Thank you.

Hi Analyn,
Without further details, I cannot suggest you anything. You need to speak to a professional for this. A bagua mirror can do little to help with the strong incoming Qi.

Hi Victor,

We’ve recently purchased a townhouse, with the 2 windows on the east side facing a t-junction inside a small subdivision. The main door is facing south.

We would like to hear your thoughts on what you think the impact of Qi to our home? And what can we possibly do to minimise the strong incoming Qi if it does.

If required to make an amendment, one of the option we thought about was to add shutter to the windows to cover them completely. Happy to hear your thoughts.

Please refer to the link below to access the plan. Thanks.

P.S. if the link doesn’t work, appreciate it if you can respond to my email add, and I’ll send you the photos.


Hi Victor,

We’re condiering buying this house, at the end of a 2 block T intersection.

Do you have recommendations on how to help mitigate the issues with its placement?

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful reply.


Hi Janice,
First, don’t use my response as the basis of your decision. A t-junction is not always bad. In fact, some can be good, if the direction is good and the Form doesn’t bring harm.
Using what’s in this article, and based on what I see, there aren’t much you can do to mitigate because of lack of land. But again, the T-junction could be a good thing so no mitigation is needed.
Let me know if you need a deeper dive into this. It’ll be $195 to review just the T-junction, but I’ll need an EXACT compass measurement.

Hi Victor,

Really appreciate all your expertise on the subject!
Would you mind taking a look at this home? I noticed there’s a curve in the T intersection and wanted to be sure it’s not too bad. What worries me is the wandering spirits you mentioned too.

16031 Quartz St, Westminster, CA 92683

Would love to hear your thoughts! Thank you!

Hi Carolyn,
From a brief look, it looks like the house just narrowly escaped the intersection. Not sure if the T-junction is a real one, though. Let me know if you need me to take a deeper look:

Dear Victor,
Thank you very much for this article. How do I find a Feng shui master in my area? I am moving to a T- junction where the road points to the bedroom, main entrance and living room window. I bought a convex Bagua mirror, which will arrive tomorrow. My USA zip code is 12487.
Thank you for your help. Sheila

Hi victor,
Could you please take a look at this house and tell me what do you think? Thanks

Hi Thao,
Yes, the house sits on a T-junction road. I’ll need a closer look to tell you if it’s good or bad:

Hi – I’m looking to purchasing a house on a t-junction which hits the front door. The house faces south west.
The T junction doesn’t have high traffic and most cars will turn left or right before reaching the T…
Upon entering the house, my entire family said this feels like home but my parents says it’s bad Feng Shui.. any insights is appreciated

Hi Ame,
Not all T-junctions are bad Feng Shui by default. Let me know if you want me to take a look:

I am looking at purchasing lot 58, faces northeast. Concerned about the T Junction
most traffic will head right from woodgate way and the path from the front door will lead from the left.
Also, is there any issue with the pond behind the property? This picture does not show it, but there will be a pond at the back, southwest of property…

Hi Jennifer,
The general rule of thumb is to avoid house at end of T-junction. However, it can bring wealth in some cases. Let me know if you want me to take a deeper look:

Hi Victor, we bought a house located at this link :

Can you please share your thoughts and advice on the house please? I’m quite worried about the feng shui….

Thank you we will contact you shortly. Can you please remove the link of the address from the previous comment please? Thanks

Alright, it’s done.

How about the condo property that its main entrance is facing the opposite incoming road?
The unit is not directly facing the road, entrance of the house is facing back. The view from the house balcony is not viewing the opposite road though.

Hi Christy,
It really depends on the road and the surroundings of the road. Let me know if you need help:

Hi Victor,

My property is on a curved L zone, where the street is facing the garage, and not the front door. The street is mainly residential, and low speed through out the day . is that considered bad?

Also, how can I email you ?

Hi Eden,
This really depends on what Forms are present and which direction the road is coming.

Hi Victor,
I’m looking to do a long term at 331 S Archer in Anaheim, it’s right on the TZone but the street is short and curved. Can you please help me take a look?? Thank you very much in advance for your help!!! ??????.

Hi Betty,
The curved road makes the incoming Qi a little less “rushing”. As for whether it’s good or bad, I need to do a deeper analysis. Let me know if you need my service.

Hi Victor,

Could you please advise whether you feel that the house at the end of the T-Junction (marked with the blue line) is likely to have bad feng shui?

Please note that it’s also on the corner of a curve.



Hi Victor,

Could you please advise whether you feel the house at the end of the t-junction marked in blue in the photo linked below would have bad feng shui? Please also note the curved road.



OK, I’ve signed up and will await an email address to send the information.


Hi Victor,
Are there any negatives to a home located at one of the four corners of a four-way stop sign?
Thank you,

Hi Brad,
There’s a rule where this might bring peach blossom, which can be good/bad depending on the situation. However, in Feng Shui, there’s no “blanket rule”. Meaning, the road, where the house is, and other factors should also be considered for an accurate assessment.

Hi Victor,

We are looking to buy a house which is in a residential road. The door of the house is not facing the t-junction road, only some of the windows are. The t-junction road facing is a dead end but has another road leading out to another street. The windows are also only facing the lane where cars turn in (not come out). Is this ok?


Hi Rameet,
I can’t really picture it, but it could be either good or bad because directions and other Forms need to be considered. I offer a service just to see if you have a good/bad T-junction or not:

Hi Victor,

Me and my sister is looking at a house that is directly on a T intersection, right across the house is a dead end block but it does have a slope coming to the house. She a police officer and after reading the feng sui we’re not sure if we should purchase this house.–2008766216

Thank you,

Hi Elaine,
T-junctions could be either good or bad. I offer a service that can take a deeper look at your situation:


I have a question. Iam German and I don’t believe a lot in the concept of Feng Shui. I see some things that make sense, while others are too much based on believe or not believe.
Anyway that is not the point, my wife is Chinese , we live in Indonesia. She is not totally into Feng Shui but ya a lot of chinese people seem to consider these kind of things when buying a house.

That being said we just bought a house that is placed at a t-junction. Anyway the house is in a closed living complex and the roads are not very long, it is quiet and the traffic is at a very small minimum. Children can walk freely around this area, it has no passing traffic. Usually only people who live there will pass by when going to work or when come home from work. And like I said this housing complex is pretty small.
So from my personal point of view and common sense it is not much of a problem at all. Anyway iam not able and also don’t want to judge all the Feng Shui rules.

My question finally, does it not also depend on the Kua of the people who live in that house? Or is that irrelevant?

Thank you very much, even as a someone who doubts I enjoy your articles.

Greetings from Indonesia,


Hi again,

I don’t want to sound arrogant or ignorant so I want to add something to my comment.

I see a lot of things about Feng Shui that makes a lot of sense and can be explain with logic. It only goes too far for me if people directly connect certain situations with luck/bad luck and gain/loss.

Your article is actually a good example and i am thankful for it. For me saying avoid a t-junction house at all costs is bit too much.
I understand things like
Color, air circulation, pollution, direction of a house, how and where to place something and so on and they make perfect sense to me. Just if all this things are ok and the “problems” can be kept at a minimum , it is just too much for me to say a t-junction house automatically means bad luck and should be avoided. This is more like a religious or superstitious thing in my opinion.
Or when people pretend there is no 4th floor and naming it 5th floor ( I don’t even know if that is still Feng Shui) . I don’t support this kind of believe.

Just wanted to clarify this.


Ps: Here is the map of that complex. Our house is at the second t-junction on the left side.

Hi Marius,
I read all of your comments and I like the way you think. From my experience, I can tell you that not all T-junctions are bad. Some can actually bring wealth.
Let me know if you need my service:

Is the above T junction bad? Is this a T-junction at all?

Hi Tim,
I can’t tell unless I take a closer look and take measurements. Let me know if you need my service:

Hi Victor,

I have three questions for you if you don’t mind me asking too much.

1) We are suggested a house by our real estate agent on a cul-de-sac with a round about in the middle (please see #3 on the plot plan from the link ). Do you think we should stay away from this property or it is okay to consider it as one of our considerations?

2) Is a house on a dead end street but not the last house bad feng shui?

3) Is the octogonal ceiling master bedroom good or bad feng shui?

Thank you in advance for your help.


Hi Victor,
So glad to read your article and get to know about Feng Shui.
We are interested in one house but concerned about the negative Qi. Please can you have a look at the map and share your advice?
It is a T-junction within residential area so there are only cars from the neighbors or guests coming to the house. Also, the road is straightly facing the neighbor but this house and the neighbor are all at the end of the street.


Hi Angelina,
T-junctions can sometimes be a good thing, depending on it’s direction relative to your house. It’s just one of the many things to consider. I suggest you find a local expert to learn more about the good and negative Qi because a more detailed analysis and compass reading is required.

Hi Victor, the house is located on 95 shore Rd. Manhasset NY, the road is L shape. There is dead end at the end of road. Is not on a busy road, only people live on the street, and visitor, very quite neighborhood. Behind this house there is a pool, and bay view from the master’s room’s window. Is this house a good house or bad location? Thank You

Hi Victor
I really need your help urgently as I have to make a decision tomorrow. Basically I am considering renting an apartment
It is 4 old house in a row and renovated and modernised. The house number is 9 and my flat is number 1, unfortunately it is at T junction.
The road facing is quite short, approx 12 larger houses on each side and there are cars parked on both sides it is 2 way road and I think cars will not be driving much faster than 20 mph as it is residential.

I am really worried as I have had spirits visiting me in the past and it really scares me.
I really need to sign the contract tomorrow but I don’t know if I should. Is a T junction worse than living in a house number 4 ?

Hope you can help, thanking you in advance

Hi Victor

I forgot to mention… at the other end of the road, opposite the apartment… is also another row of houses.

Hi Victor.
Our home is at a T junction . You can see back if stop sign out the front door. The stop sign is at the end of a short curved road so it slows traffic.
First off the 55 year old married woman that lived here died suddenly in hospital and husband listed home and we bought it . 5 months later when we were not home we were victims of a home invasion, took all valuables. I find myself depressed Or unable to make decisions clearly and often in this home. I was forced out of my job this year replaced with another I did not ask for which may be OK in the end. Past 10 years when family comes over for holidays or gatherings there are huge fights and misunderstandings that ensue. My address adds up to 19 which I understand is also unfavorable. I am deciding whether or not to construct a 6 foot rod iron decorative gate at my entry . Please forward your thoughts in gate and overall how we can clean up some of this energy.

Hi Vicki,
I’m sorry for the unfortunate events. I can’t help much without fully understanding the situation, but if the incoming Qi is strong and negative, you should find ways to minimize its impact. One way is to put trees and bushes to block its incoming energy. It’ll help minimize the impact but can’t fully be used as a cure.

Dear Victor Cheung,

I live at the 2nd floor of a hostel, and my side of the building (as well as my room’s single window) faces an intersection. Meanwhile my room door faces away from it. Directly in front of me is the hostel carpark, where cars often come in and go out. Leading out of the carpark is a slightly curved two-way road and before reaching the main exit of this road there are smaller junctions that cars also turn into

(main exit)
________ _____
| |
| |
| two-way |
| curved |
___ | |____
___ ____ (left and right junctions to smaller areas, also two-way roads)
| |
| straighter |
| |
___ | | ____________________
all of this is car park |
_________________________________ |
{ |xxx| }
Hostel building is here, xxx indicates
where my window and my room is facing.
I stay on the 2nd floor. Curly brackets is an estimate of the width of my room.

I hope the diagram is clear enough and I’d like to ask Mr Cheung if I am affected by alot of negative-flow this way, despite not living on the ground floor. This hostel and the roads mention are ALL within school grounds, so accidents rarely ever happen despite the often movement of cars in and out. My window has opaque blinds that I assume can block the incoming flow, however I would prefer being able to receive natural light and air sometimes.
I would also like to ask if it is bad for me to position the bed in my room facing the mentioned window, since I would be consequently sleeping facing out towards the intersection. Of course when I sleep, the blinds will always be down. If I placed a portable clothes rack between the window and bed, will it be able to help block negative flow of energy?
I am considering installing additional blinds in front of the window itself so that during daytime, I can still receive some natural light WHILE having a long cloth (although not opaque), cover and block me from incoming flow. I would like to know if installing not-fully-opaque curtain can help block incoming flow.

Hi Victor,So glad to read your article.i have some concern about my house coz the gate and drive way straight through to the front door and window…Please please let know what to do…I’m so worried… thank you!!!Anne
