Antariksh means The Space and practice of Vastu is all about Space, converting the sapce in a leavable builtspace. The Tanmatra of Antariksha or Akash (as popularly known) is Shabd, the sound. This pada actually represents the miniature representation of whole built space. Like a space enclosed by four walls and a roof represents the whole cosmos in a miniature form, Antariksha pada represents the whole house on a micro level.
Samaranganasutradhara identifies Antariksh as the demigod 'Nabhodeva' or, The Sky-God. The ancient Sky-God of Vedic pantheon is Dyaus Pita or literally the 'Sky Father'. He impregnated Prithvi, the earth and mother, in the form of rains. He is the father of Indra (future king of the Gods and the lord of rain), Agni (fire) and Usha (the dawn). The name Dyaus Pita is closely related to Latin Jupiter. Jupiter is considered the planet of vast expanse of sky in Indian Vedic Astrology. Later, Indra replaced Dyaus as the chief god while Prthivi still survives as a Hindu goddess.

Sandhyā Mantra; योऽन्तरेणाकाश आसीत्तदन्त- रिक्षमभवदीक्षं हैतन्नाम ततः पुरान्तरा वा इदमीक्षमभूदिति तस्मादन्तरिक्षं |

This is the most important Pada as it represents the Universe and the whole Vastu on Micro level. If we have worked on other zones and left Antariksh unattended, the expected results may allude us.
