It is acceptable to face the San Sha, but it is not advisable to sit with your back to San Sha. Place the 3 Celestial Guardians of Fu Dog, Chi Lin & Pi Yao in this direction or carry amulets of their images.
Sui Po is also known as the Year Clash and always diametrically opposes the Tai Sui. This year it is in the North West 3.
