The best shapes for plots of land are square or rectangular, facing squarely on the four cardinal directions.
It is good if the plot is narrower at the entrance and wider at its rear, but the opposite is not good.
Round, oval, and triangular plots should be avoided. The house should not be built in the shape of a diamond, with the corner facing north. L-shaped plots are also inauspicious and should not be purchased.
If the land is cut in the corner this is not good. If possible the land to fill in the missing corner should be purchased. If the land is cut short on the northeast side it is very bad and is not auspicious; do not purchase it. It is like a headless body.
