During the year of the Dog 2018 the best places to be are the Southeast, the Southwest and the Northwest. To find those places in your house, superimpose a 3x3 grid on your floor plan and determine its orientation with a compass as follows: Go to the center of the house, hold a compass in your hands pointing towards any direction and stay still until the compass stops moving. Mark that direction on the corresponding box and then label the other boxes accordingly.
