Sun travels from the east to the centre and tilts towards the south which produces high ultra red rays and gamma rays which are overall producing negativity which affects health and wealth. The sun from the centre then travels towards the sunset which is between west and south west which also produces negative energies affecting the cosmic energy system therefore some inauspiciousness is linked with this direction which certainly makes it unfavorable direction.
