Before answering this question and its answer, Vastu consultant in Kolkata discusses why taking the reference of sun for directions is not accurate.
But before that you should know what is implied by facing direction of any vastu. Every building has a face, where its main door lies.
In fact, the facing of any building is the primary attribute that any Vastu consultant in Kolkata seeks (for instance, an east facing vastu or south vastu etc). This is the direction towards which you face while stepping out of the main gate in any vastu.
Mostly people do this evaluation based on the sun’s rising orientation. It has been a primitive way of determining primitive direction, but calculating padas in this way is not accurate.
Of course the sun rises in the east and we all know that, but you should also know that the earth is tiled in 23.5 degree with respect to its axis.
Because of which the accurate direction of the rising sun changes over the period of the year. In fact you can tell that the average duration of daylight changes over the seasons as well.
This is all due to the fact that the angle of sunrise gradually shifts throughout the year. In fact, out of 365 days, only during 2 days in the year, the sun rises in the exact east. This happens during equinox, namely on 20th or 21st March and 22nd or 23rd September.
Only on these 2 days you can determine accurately determine an east facing vastu. Doing so in any other day might end up creating discrepancy in the result.
This is what makes using magnetic compass so effective. We all know that a magnetic compass has a needle which always points to the geographic north of the Earth.
Based on it, the remaining directions can be traced accurately as well. Vastu consultant in Kolkata holds the compass parallel to the ground around their chest level and be static for a few moments. That yields an accurate result for it.
You need to bear in mind that electricity and magnetic field can also minutely influence the motion of the compass needles. Thus, before carrying out the evaluation, you should see if there is any electric pole around you or not.
