Compass Directions – Southwest

The Southwest sector of your home represents marriage and other partnerships. It’s connected to the mother of the family and the element of earth. The emblem of the Southwest is mother earth and the number associated with the Southwest is 2. Yellow, brown, beige and orange are favourable colours for this part of your home, and it’s represented by square shapes. The season of late summer (also called Indian summer) is connected to the Southwest and in your body it corresponds to your digestion as well as your belly and womb.

This kind of information is useful if you are experiencing any issues in any of the areas mentioned above, or you want to create extra support in your life for these areas. If that’s the case it can pay off to take a closer look at the Southwest sector of your home.

For example, a bathroom in this sector will have a draining effect on the mother of the family as well as your marriage and other partnerships (business relationships for example). A stove or fireplace here can mean that these areas of your life are over-active and you can tend to feel burnt out by them, or you are working very hard to keep up certain relationships. To rectify these situations ideally you should move the bathroom or fireplace, which of course most often you cannot do. Instead you can create extra support for the mother by helping her to de-stress and managing her relationships, making sure she is not giving too much without receiving anything back. It’s also important for everyone in the home to counteract these situations with taking extra care of your relationships and spending some time and effort on making then work.

Clutter in the Southwest sector of your home will create a barrier around your marriage and other relationships. Clutter is attracted to the areas of your life you feel burdened by or don’t want to look at. If you find clutter in this sector of your home, subconsciously you are working against your ability to create great, functional and supportive relationships. Perhaps your experience is that relationships are hard work and difficult to manage. If this bothers you and you want to change it, start clearing the clutter in this part of your home, and you will soon find that you start feeling more at ease in your relationships and that you start acting differently and as a result others act differently towards you too.

If this part of your home is missing, or partially missing, you may experience that you lack in supportive relationships, or that you tend to end up on the “giving end” rather than having well balanced and mutually functional relationships. You may be longing to be in a relationship with a significant other, and still find yourself single. You could also be experiencing health issues related to your digestion, belly or womb. To counteract this you can place a barbecue or open fireplace, or large terracotta pots in the Southwest sector of your garden.

Look at the Southwest sector of your home and see if you can understand what it is telling you…
