With yet another New Year all set to arrive, houses and offices will be receiving fresh calendars. Most people hang the new calendar at the same spot where the previous year’s calendar was displayed. However, Vasthu Sastra specifies certain spots to fix the calendar.
A calendar represents a certain time period and a calendar hung from different geographic directions is said to produce varied effects.
A calendar fixed on the Eastern side produces beneficial effects. East represents growth and success. In case the calendar has an image of the rising sun, the gain is expected to multiply.
North is the direction which the God of wealth Kubera presides over. A calendar hung on this side along with a picture having green colour, a waterfall or a wedding photo earns good fortune.
A natural source of energy is believed to exist in the West. Fixing the calendar in this direction is expected to boost business. This makes West the ideal spot to display the calendar in business establishments.
Generally it is thought that attaching the calendar on the South direction is inauspicious. Obstacles in making money and ailments of householder are expected.
In short, a calendar can be hung in any direction, except the South. When the calendar is displayed in other areas, the effect will vary.
Avoid calendars having the images of carnivorous animals or that which evoke sadness as they produce negative energy.
Another spot where a calendar should not be fixed is the area which is clearly visible from the main door. This is considered to block positive energy.
The most suitable place to fix the calendar is the wall. It should not be attached behind a door or on the ledge near the window.
