When Sun or the lord of the ninth house is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope and it is afflicted by a malefic planet which is also placed in the ninth house, Pitra Dosh is formed in the ninth house of such horoscope. Pitra Dosh in the ninth house can cause many types of problems for the native under its impact, depending on its strength and on the overall horoscope of the native. Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope is undoubtedly the worst type of Pitra Dosh as this is the only house of the horoscope where the Sun itself can form Pitra Dosh by afflicting a house. Ninth house is the only house of a horoscope which can lead to the formation of double Pitra Dosh in the horoscope, if malefic planets are placed in this house.

As we already know that the affliction of any malefic planet to the ninth house of a horoscope can form Pitra Dosh in the horoscope, if the ninth house of a horoscope is afflicted by virtue of the placement of one or more than one malefic planets in this house along with Sun, double Pitra Dosh may be formed in the horoscope. For example, if a combination of malefic Rahu and Sun is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer, such result may be experienced. Malefic Rahu may afflict Sun as well as the ninth house of this horoscope and hence double Pitra Dosh may be formed in the horoscope. Similarly, the presence of any other malefic planet in the ninth house of a horoscope can lead to the formation of double Pitra Dosh in such horoscope.

Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope can trouble the native almost on every front of his life and it can cause serious problems in one or two spheres of native’s life, which are generally permanent in nature. Ninth house is the house of luck in a horoscope and the formation of Pitra Dosh in this house of a horoscope can reduce or destroy the luck of the native; and no one can achieve much without luck. Hence this type of Pitra Dosh can trouble the natives under its impact with a wide variety of problems or so to say, it can hit them almost in every sphere of their lives.

Some natives may feel the heat of such Pitra Dosh in the sphere of their profession due to which they may have to face many types of problems in their professions, depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Some of these natives may not find well paying jobs and they may have to engage in low paying as well as low standard jobs. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may suffer from extremely tight financial equation throughout his life, primarily due to his inability to earn well from his profession.

When touching its extremes, this type of Pitra Dosh can produce beggars who may have to feed on the money donated by other people, people who may spend most of their lives in charitable organizations, people who may run away from their families and live in asylums for very long periods of time, people serving long sentences in prisons which may be far away from their homes and many other such people who may suffer from continuous and almost permanent types of troubles and miseries. Most people under the strong influence of this type of Pitra Dosh hold no respect in the society and on the contrary; they may have to keep facing social disgrace and disrespect, time and again in their lives.

This type of Pitra Dosh can trouble the natives under its impact with some of the strangest and most troublesome types of problems where the quantum of such problems depends on the overall horoscopes of these natives. For example, the natives randomly and suddenly chosen for kidnappings, the natives held captives or hostages for long periods of time, the natives having to spend long periods of time on deserted islands on account of shipwrecks, the natives taking wrong medicines by someone else’s mistake and getting ill for long periods of time, the natives getting injured or even killed in some kind of fight or crossfire in which they may not be involved at all; and all other types of natives who may not intentionally get themselves into troubles but who may get into such troubles on account of bad luck, may be under the strong malefic influence of Pitra Dosh present in the ninth house of their horoscopes.

The most troublesome aspect of this type of Pitra Dosh is that the natives under the strong influence of this defect may not suffer because of their own mistakes in many cases, and they may suffer on account of pure bad luck which may land them into troubles every now and then; even when they may have done nothing wrong to deserve such troubles. This is what makes it the most difficult to handle type of Pitra Dosh as there is virtually no wisdom or word of advice which can save people suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh.

Even the wisest of the people suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may suffer from many types of problems, not only due to their mistakes, but because of their wisdom. It means that the natives suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to face many problems due to their wisdom, their skills, their knowledge or some other qualities that they may possess; as some influential or powerful people may be jealous or fearful of their qualities. Hence such influential or powerful people may try to destroy these natives as they may see these natives as potential threats to them, in the future. You see, how Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope can make even the best of your virtues; your greatest enemies.

Pitra Dosh in the ninth house of a horoscope can trouble the natives under its impact with many types of problems before and after their marriages, depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes. Some natives under its impact may not get married on time and their marriages may get delayed till late or very late in their lives. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face many types of problems after their marriages and such problems may intensify with the addition of other negative planets to their horoscopes. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it receives support from other marriage breaking planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may have to go through more than one broken marriage.

Considering an example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic retrograde Saturn and Jupiter in the ninth house of a horoscope in the sign of Pisces, malefic Ketu is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Cancer and malefic Rahu is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn, the native may face problems. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may start facing problems soon after his marriage and such problems may intensify with the passage of time. These problems may ultimately break the marriage of the native after a making him suffer for a significant period of time and he may settle in his second marriage only.

At the same time, if malefic retrograde Venus is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn along with malefic Rahu; and malefic Mercury also joins this combination in the seventh house of this horoscope when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the equation may become much more negative. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planet have to face more than one broken marriage and he may settle in his third or fourth marriage only, or such native may not get married after his second or third failed marriage and he may remain single for the rest of his life.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the ninth house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many other types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Some natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may face serious injuries on account of accidents or in acts of sudden or planned violence against them. Here again, the quantum of such injuries depends on the strength of this defect as well as on the overall horoscopes of these natives. If such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may lose a limb in an accident or he may sustain a serious injury in such accident. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native under its impact may die at a young age, in an accident or in an act of violence.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic exalted Sun, the native may die in an accident. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may die in an accident or in an act of violence; anytime after his age of 55. At the same time, if malefic retrograde debilitated Mercury is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces, malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Taurus when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate.

The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may die anytime during his age of 42 and 50, in an accident or in an act of violence. If malefic retrograde Saturn is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Rahu; and malefic debilitated Moon also joins this combination in the third house, the native may suffer more. The combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may kill this native in an accident or in an act of violence, anytime after his age of 27.

Some other natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from various types of health problems and diseases, where the quantum of such problems depends on the overall horoscopes of these natives. If such Pitra Dosh is strong in a horoscope, it can afflict the native with a serious disease which may trouble him till the end of his life and which may significantly reduce his lifespan. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may get afflicted with a fatal disease which may kill him at a young or very young age.

The formation of Pitra Dosh in the eighth house can also cause problems in the marriage of the native due to which some natives under its impact may witness many types of problems before and after their marriages, as indicated by their overall horoscope. Such Pitra Dosh can delay the marriages of some natives due to which these native may not get married till late or very late, depending on their overall horoscopes. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may not get married till his age of 41 or he may not get married at all.

Considering an example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic exalted Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with Sun, the native may witness delay in his marriage. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may not get married till his age of 35 as his marriage may get delayed due to various reasons depending on the rest of his horoscope. At the same time, if malefic Saturn is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo, malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra when all other malefic planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the equation may become much more negative.

As a result, the native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 41 and he may also have to suffer from a broken engagement. If in the same horoscope, debilitated Venus is placed in the eighth house in the sign of Virgo along with malefic exalted Mercury and Sun when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses, the problem may intensify. This is due to the fact that the affliction of malefic exalted Mercury to Sun and debilitated Venus may form double Pitra Dosh in this horoscope, as Venus is the lord of the ninth house in this example. As a result, the native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 48 or he may not get married at all.

Some other natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may not witness much delay in their marriages but they may face problems after their marriages. The type of problems as well as the quantum of problems experienced by different natives of this type depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh, as well as on the overall horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may have to face more than one broken marriage on account of serious problems in such marriages.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mars in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with Moon, malefic Rahu is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries and malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra, the native may face this problem. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may face serious differences of opinion with his wife and such differences may eventually break his marriage. At the same time, if malefic Venus is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic Rahu when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may witness more than one broken marriage due to serious problems in such marriages, unless there is a strong marriage saving planet in his horoscope.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the eighth house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many other types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

When Sun or the lord of the ninth house is placed in the seventh house of a horoscope and it is afflicted by a malefic planet which is also placed in the seventh house, Pitra Dosh is formed in the seventh house of such horoscope. Pitra Dosh in the seventh house can cause many types of problems for the native under its impact, depending on its strength and on the overall horoscope of the native.

Since the seventh house of a horoscope primarily signifies the affairs related to the marriage of the native, the presence of Pitra Dosh in this house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many types of problems which may come before or after his marriage, depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Such Pitra Dosh can delay the marriages of some natives under its impact due to which these natives may not get married till late in their lives and such delay may prolong with the addition of other negative planets to the horoscopes of these natives. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may not get married till very late or he may not get married at all.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn and Sun in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Pisces, the native may witness this problem. The native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may not get married till his age of 35 and his marriage may get delayed on account of various reasons, depending on his overall horoscope. For instance, if Venus is placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn, malefic Ketu is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces along with malefic Saturn and Sun; and malefic Rahu is placed in the first house of this horoscope, the native may face this delay due to a love affair.

The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may fall in love with a woman and this relationship may continue for as long as a period of seven years or even more. However, such love relationship may not convert into a marriage till this native’s age of 36 or even more due to various reasons; and hence the marriage of the native may get delayed. At the same time, if malefic Jupiter is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo and malefic exalted Mars is placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn along with Venus when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may intensify.

This is due to the fact that malefic exalted Mars may afflict Venus in the fifth house and this combination may form one more Pitra Dosh in the horoscope as Venus is the lord of the ninth house in this horoscope. As a result, the native under the combined effect of such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may have a love relationship which may continue for more than seven years but which may not convert into marriage, as the lover of this native may ultimately walk out of this love relationship. As a result, the marriage of this native may first get delayed due to the continuance of such love affair and once this relationship is broken, the native may not prepare himself for marriage, for many years to follow. Hence this native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 41 or he may not get married throughout his life.

Some other natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may not witness much delay in their marriages but they may have to face many types of problems after their marriages. It should be noted that the problems caused due to the formation of Pitra Dosh in the seventh house generally start soon after the marriages of the natives, when this defect is formed due to the presence of Sun and one or more than one malefic planet in the seventh house. However, if such Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of lord of the ninth house and one or more than one malefic planet in the seventh house, these problems may appear early or late in the marriages of these natives, depending on the planet which is the lord of the ninth house in a particular example.

This is due to the fact that Sun is a fiery and quick planet; and whatever positive or negative results it may indicate in any house of a horoscope, it doesn’t waste much time in most cases; and it starts showing those results at the earliest. Hence Pitra Dosh formed due to the presence of Sun in the seventh house may start giving its malefic effects soon after the marriage. Expanding the same concept, Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house of a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars and Sun can prove to be one of the quickest, when it comes to cause problems in the marriage of the native under its impact. This is because, just like Sun, Mars is also a fiery and quick planet which believes in delivering its good or bad results at a fast pace.

Hence Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house due to the malefic combination of Mars and Sun can prove a very fast type of Pitra Dosh in delivering bad result related to the marriage of the native, as both the planets involved in the formation of such Pitra Dosh are the quickest among navagraha. As a result, the native may witness problems in his marriage soon after it happens; and he may face a broken marriage within a period of one year or even within a period of six months of such marriage. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other marriage breaking planets, the native under its malefic impact may suffer from two or three broken marriages and all such marriages may fail within a year or two after they happen.

On the other hand, if Pitra Dosh is formed in the seventh house due to the presence of the lord of the ninth house along with one or more than one malefic planet, the pace of the malefic results delivered by such Pitra Dosh depends on the planets which form such Pitra Dosh. For example, if such Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Rahu or Ketu along with Mars when Mars is the lord of the ninth house, the problems may once again appear soon after the marriage, as all these planets are fast. However, if such Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn along with another planet which is the lord of the ninth house, the problems may start rising comparatively late after the marriage; and they may also start getting stronger at a slow pace.

The slowest type of Pitra Dosh may be formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn and Jupiter or due to presence of malefic Jupiter and Saturn in the seventh house of a horoscope where Jupiter is the lord of the ninth house in the first case and Saturn is the lord of the ninth house in the second case. Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house of a horoscope due to a malefic combination of Saturn and Jupiter may start causing problems in the marriage of the native at a slow or very slow pace. Such native may start feeling uneasy after a period of couple of years or even more, this uneasiness may start building at a slow pace and by the time it leads to a broken marriage, the native may have spent five years or more in such marriage.

In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may witness a troubled marriage at such slow pace that the divorce may happen after fourteen years of such troubled marriage or the native may not get divorced, even after this period. Such native may either separate from his wife and the two of them may live alone without officially being divorced for the rest of their lives; or such divorce may come; many years after the native and his wife separate. This is due to the fact that Saturn and Jupiter are slow in giving their results whether such results are good or bad.

Hence the formation of any type of defect by a combination of these two planets may deliver its bad results at a slow pace; and over a long period of time. This is why I put so much emphasis on analyzing the overall tone of a horoscope in question, as much may change with even a small change in such horoscope.  For instance, a native suffering from Pitra Dosh in the seventh house formed by a malefic combination of Mars, Rahu and Sun may witness two or three broken marriages till his age of 40. On the other hand, a native suffering from Pitra Dosh in the seventh house formed by a malefic combination of Saturn and Jupiter may not even get out of his first marriage till his age of 40, though the quantum of problems faced by him in such marriage may be more than the quantum of problems faced by the native of the first type, in his two or three broken marriages.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the seventh house of a horoscope can trouble the native with many other types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope. Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Saturn signifies the people engaged in labor industry, workers doing low paying jobs to earn their livelihood like construction workers and other types of labor workers, people dealing and working in real estate business and many other types of people, professions and things. Saturn also signifies beggars, crippled persons, blind persons, carpenters and other people dealing and working in wooden goods; common public or common people dealing in ordinary jobs to earn their livelihood, scientists, analysts and researchers; IT professionals, engineers, judges and some administrators requiring the ability to judge and decide, people possessing paranormal powers or people dealing in the science of the occult and many other things, professions and people.

Saturn also signifies qualities like discipline, meditation, perseverance, spiritualism, sincerity, the ability to analyze facts in great details, the qualities like detachment and dutifulness among many other qualities. The natives who as their ancestors have committed bad karmas or crimes related to the significances of Saturn or the natives who have misused the abilities given by Saturn in their previous lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of this life. Such bad karmas form karmic debt of Saturn due to which Saturn becomes malefic for these native as it needs to punish these natives for the bad things done by them, related to his domain.

When Saturn is malefic in a horoscope and it afflicts Sun by virtue of its placement in some house of the horoscope along with Sun, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope due to malefic Saturn. Similarly, if malefic and fully active Saturn is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope or it is placed with the lord of the ninth house in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope. Pitra Dosh formed by Saturn can trouble the native with many types of problems which may differ from person to person depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

Common or ordinary people, servants and people engaging in other such types of jobs are some of the strongest significances of Saturn and accordingly the natives who have troubled, bothered or hurt such people in their past lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the fourth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors willingly and continuously troubled labor workers or construction workers. This formed karmic debt of Saturn and as a result, malefic Saturn forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native which can make him suffer from many types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

Some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh have to spend extra money towards the construction of their residential houses due to the problems caused by construction labor which may delay the house building process and which can increase the expenses considerably. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native under its impact may engage in construction business like he may become a building contractor; and he may have to face serious issues due to his construction labor. The labor working for this native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may have serious disagreements with this native and they may go on a strike in the middle of a very important and big project undertaken by this native. Hence the native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to face big financial losses as the project may get delayed a lot, and he may even have to lose such project, which may cause even bigger problems.

The presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope can also indicate that the native or his ancestors had troubled and tortured their servants in their past lives and they had not duly paid their servants for the jobs done by them. This formed karmic debt of Saturn and as a result, malefic Saturn forms Pitra Dosh in the present life horoscope of the native, which can trouble him on account of problems coming through servants and other people belonging to his category. For instance, some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer from problems like their servants running away with their belongings or their servants causing physical injuries to them and then running away with their valuables.

The types of problems as well as the quantum of such problems faced by a native suffering from such Pitra Dosh depend on type and quantum of bad karmas committed by this native in his past life, towards the people belonging to this category. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the native under its malefic impact may suffer from very serious types of problems. A servant of this native may plan a robbery in the house of this native with the help of other people and during the process of robbery, the native may get seriously injured as he may become aware of such robbery and he may try to stop it. If the running time is very bad and there is no grace saving planet in the horoscope of such native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh, he may get killed by his servant during a robbery, as he may try to stop him from robbing his house; or such servant may intentionally murder him in order to settle some type of score with him.

Common public is another strong significance of Saturn and the natives who have committed bad karmas or crimes towards common public in their past lives are also likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes. For example, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the tenth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors held a position of power and authority with the government and they were supposed to serve the public by virtue of that position. However, instead of serving the public, they misused their power and authority; and they troubled the public or extracted money from them in forceful manners during their previous lives. This formed karmic debt of Saturn and accordingly malefic Saturn forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which can make him suffer from many types of problems depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed in the tenth house of a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Saturn in the tenth house of a horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius along with malefic Sun; the native may not find a permanent profession. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may only find temporary jobs and he may also have to remain jobless between such job changes. If such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native under its malefic impact may have to remain jobless for periods of more than one year, many times in his life. Such native may have to suffer from poor financial equation due to not earning regularly from his profession.

Considering one more possibility, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn in the tenth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with Sun; malefic Rahu is also placed in the tenth house of this horoscope and malefic Ketu is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius; the native may face different type of problems. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may get involved in a scandal related to his profession, he may have to face a lot of public disgrace due to his involvement in such scandal, he may have to face a court case and he may even have to spend significant amount of time in prison by virtue of such scandal.

Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may become beggars and they may have to depend on common public in order to earn their bread and butter. This is once again a balancing act of the nature, which shows that the people who make other people beg for the things that they duly deserve as their rights, may suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their next lives; and they may have to actually beg from the same type of people, in order to meet their day to day requirements. Similarly, some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face the rage of the common public due to many reasons; and they may suffer the amount of damage through such rage, as indicated by their overall horoscopes.

In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may get seriously injured or he may even die in an act of public violence against him. This native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may get exposed in such a shameful act that the common public may get enraged, they may attack this native and he may get killed during such act of violence. Such native may not only die during such violence, he may also leave great amount of shame and disgrace attached to his name, after his death, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.

Moving on to some other possibilities, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the third house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors may have made their brothers or friends work like servants for them by misusing the power and authority possessed by them. Some of these natives may even have snatched wealth belonging to their brothers, either by force or by means of deception. The brother of such a native may have suffered a lot due to his bad conducts and this formed karmic debt of Saturn on the native.

As a result, malefic Saturn forms Pitra Dosh in the third house of the present life horoscope of this native, which can trouble him on account of many types of problems coming from his brothers and friends. For instance, some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer from betrayals or deceptions from their brothers and friends; whereas some other natives of this type may have to lose their wealth and properties to their brothers. The brothers or friends of these natives may deceive them in order to grab their wealth and property; and these natives may have to suffer a lot due to such deceptions.

In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the native under its malefic impact may get killed by his brother, as his brother may want to grab this native’s share of ancestral property or he may kill him for some other type of benefit related to property. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn in the third house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with malefic Jupiter which is the lord of ninth house in this case; and another Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic retrograde Mercury and Sun in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius; the native may suffer from such extreme results.

The native under the malefic impact of such double Pitra Dosh may get killed by his own brother, as his brother may want to grab his share of ancestral property. It should be noted that the native suffering from such double Pitra Dosh is likely to be killed by means of a planned murder; and not in an act of heat. The brother of this native may kill him, he may escape the punishment for such murder and he may also grab his share of ancestral property. As always, this is a karmic settlement from the past life; and the native is only paying back for what he had done in his past life, as one of his ancestors.

Real estate and immovable properties are other significances of Saturn and the natives who have committed bad karmas or crimes related to these things in their previous lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the twelfth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had forcibly grabbed the lands of many weak people and such people had suffered a lot. This formed karmic debt of Saturn on the native and as a result, malefic Saturn forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can make him suffer from similar type of problems.

Some natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may remain poor throughout their lives and hence they may never become capable of purchasing their own houses. These natives may also have to face many types of problems related to rented houses; like some of them may be forcibly moved out of their houses rented by them, even when their contracts are valid; as their landlords may need such houses. Hence these natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from many problems at once, due to such forced vacations imposed on them. However, this is only a mild type of damage that such Pitra Dosh may cause; and a lot more can happen to such natives.

The quantum of punishment imposed by such Pitra Dosh on the native under its impact depends on the quantum of bad karmas committed by the native in his past life, as one of his ancestors. In cases where such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the natives under its malefic impact may witness forced possessions and seizers of their properties due to which they may have to lose such properties. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Saturn with Sun and Mercury in the twelfth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aquarius; malefic Ketu is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini and malefic Rahu is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius, the native may face such problem. Invaders or land mafia may forcibly possess and seize the property of this native and he may have to suffer a lot due to the loss of such property.

However, even this is not the maximum amount of punishment that this type of Pitra Dosh can impose on a native under its impact. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is very strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may get killed in an act of violence, while trying to stop the people who may want to forcibly seize a property owned by him. In another extreme case of this type of Pitra Dosh, the native under its malefic impact may have to live a big part of his life in refugee camps or asylums, completely on the mercy of other people, due to various reasons.  This is once again a karmic settlement from past life, which gives the message that if you grab the lands of other people by force, you may remain homeless in your next life.

Judges and other people having authorities of the same kind who have misused their positions of power and authority in their previous lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh. It should be noted that a judge is considered as a direct representative of the god as his job is to bring justice to people. Therefore, when a judge intentionally delivers injustice due to any type of reason like money or favor; it becomes a crime of a very high degree. For the people who find this fact difficult to understand, let me explain it with help of an example.

If a person is charged with the offence of a murder and the judge intentionally acquits him of such murder on account of any reason, such judge is guilty of committing a crime equal to or even worse than a murder. This is due to the fact that by acquitting such criminal, the judge has become an accomplice in his crime, as he has joined such criminal. Hence he is guilty of the committing the crime of a murder. Moving on, if such criminal acquitted by this judge commits yet another murder or more than one murder, the judge is guilty of those murders also.

This is due to the fact that if the judge had put this criminal behind bars by convicting him for the first murder, he may not have killed other innocent people. Hence the judge in this case becomes a share holder of all the crimes committed by such criminal, after being acquitted by him. For this reason, the job of a judge of any type is a very sensitive job as it can earn him highest degree of karmic rewards and it can also bring him the worst types of punishments, depending on the way he discharges his duties.

Coming back to the example, the natives who have intentionally delivered injustice as judges in their previous lives are likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the sixth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native as one of his ancestors held the post of some type of judge in his previous life and he intentionally denied justice to a number of people. The sufferings of such people formed karmic debt of Saturn and as a result, Saturn may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native in his present life. Such Pitra Dosh can trouble the native on account of serious and life threatening diseases which may keep causing severe physical pains to the native and which may claim his life in the end. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may get convicted in a false case and they may have to serve a prison sentence of many years.

Looking at some other possibilities, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the sixth, eighth, tenth, eleventh or twelfth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors were criminals in their past lives and they troubled, hurt or killed many people. This formed karmic debt of Saturn on the native and as a result, malefic Saturn may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which may trouble him in many ways, depending on his overall horoscope. The natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may suffer from serious diseases, they may become physically handicapped or they may have to face many other types of problems, depending on their overall horoscope. In an extreme case of this type, the native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may get killed due to a fatal disease, by means of a capital punishment, by virtue of a planned attack on his life or in a horrible accident. Some natives killed because of the impact of very strong Pitra Dosh of this type may not even receive their after death rituals; as even their bodies may not be found.

Similarly, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Saturn can indicate many other types of bad karmas related to the significances of Saturn which were done by the native or his ancestors in their past lives. Such karmas formed karmic debt related to Saturn due to which Saturn becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native. Like always, the type of problems witnessed by a native suffering from such Pitra Dosh and the quantum of such problems depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by such native in his past lives.

Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Mars signifies brothers, friends, supporters, colleagues, people working in police force, army and other such forces, arms, ammunition, weapons, physical strength and power, bravery, the ability to fight, blood and many other important people, things and professions. When Mars is malefic in a horoscope and it afflicts Sun by virtue of its placement in some house of the horoscope along with Sun, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope due to malefic Mars. Similarly, if malefic and fully active Mars is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope or it is placed with the lord of the ninth house in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope. Pitra Dosh formed by Mars can trouble the native with many types of problems which may differ from person to person depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

The formation of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope due to malefic Mars indicates that the native as one of his ancestors had done bad karmas related to the significances of Mars in his past lives or he had misused the abilities given by Mars in his past lives. This formed a karmic debt of Mars on such native and accordingly, Mars becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in his horoscope of this life by afflicting Sun or by afflicting the ninth house of his horoscope. Such Pitra Dosh can trouble the native in many spheres of his life where the types of problems faced by a native and the quantum of such problems is dependent on the strength of such Pitra Dosh as well as on the overall horoscope of the native; which is further dependent on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by the native in his past life, related to the significances of Mars.

Brothers and especially younger brothers are among the main significances of Mars and the natives who had troubled, harmed or betrayed their brothers in their past lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes. It should be noted that only the natives who had committed such bad karmas towards their brothers as their ancestors are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh. It means that if a native had troubled his brother a lot while he was his own great grandfather and he is now born again in the same family line, he is likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh.

On the other hand, if a native had troubled his brother in his past life but he is not born in the same family line in this life due to some reason, he is not likely to suffer from such Pitra Dosh. This native is likely to have malefic Mars but such Mars may not form Pitra Dosh. The formation of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope is always attached to something wrong done by the ancestors of the native; and the native is one of those ancestors in most such cases. Hence whenever the concept of Pitra Dosh is introduced in a horoscope, it relates to the bad karmas done by ancestors of the native.

Coming back to the topic, the natives who had troubled their brothers in their past lives may suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh and they may suffer many types of problems depending on the type and quantum of such Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes, as well as on the overall tone of their horoscopes. For example, the formation of such Pitra Dosh in the sixth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors troubled or betrayed their brothers in their past lives. This formed a karmic debt of Mars due to which Mars becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in the sixth house of the horoscope of the native in his present life. Such Pitra Dosh can make the native suffer on account of problems and troubles created by his brothers and especially by his younger brothers.

Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may suffer from serious disagreements with their brothers and some of these natives may have to face long lasting enmity, court cases and legal litigations against their own brothers; and their brothers may prove very troublesome or the most troublesome people in their entire lives. For instance, if malefic Mars forms Pitra Dosh in a horoscope by afflicting Sun in the sixth house of a horoscope in the sign of Scorpio, the native may suffer from serious problems through his brother. The brother of this native may have serious disagreements with him right from their young age, and he may trouble him a lot through many ways, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.

Such brother may become an enemy of the native and he may pose many types of problems for this native, at many stages of his life, depending on the strength of such Pitra Dosh and on the overall horoscope of the native. For instance, if malefic Saturn is also present in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Mars and Sun; malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius, the native may face serious problems through this brother.

The native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may have his brother as one of his worst enemies in his life; and such brother may plan many conspiracies against this native, from time to time. The brother of this native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may take his father in confidence and he may get most of his wealth and property assigned to him through will, even when a considerable part of such wealth may have been transferred to the father through his father; and the native may be entitled to an equal part of such wealth.

It should be noted that if some type of wealth is transferred to a person through his father or grandfather, all his children are entitled to an equal share in such wealth and such person is legally not entitled to distribute such wealth in disproportional shares. However, if a native has accumulated wealth and properties through his own money and efforts, he is free to give it to any one of his children or even to someone else.

Moving on with the example, the native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get much or anything from his ancestral property as his brother may grab everything by fraudulent means; and the native may have to file a court case against his brother in order to get his share of wealth. Though such court case may ultimately be decided in favor of the native; the amount of time taken by such court case to decide depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh as well as on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong, the native suffering from it may have to wait for 10 years or even longer in order to get his share of wealth through court.

The formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the eleventh house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had cheated their brothers for money and wealth in their past lives due to which such brothers had suffered a lot. This formed karmic debt of Mars and as a result, Mars becomes malefic and it forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can make him suffer on account of financial losses caused by his brother or brothers. The reason of such financial losses and the quantum of such financial losses depend on the strength of such Pitra Dosh and on the overall horoscope of the native, which further depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by the native towards his brother; in his past life.

Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to lend money to their brothers many times in their lives and in most cases, the money lent by these natives may not be returned by their brothers. On the contrary, such brothers may keep asking for more and more money from time to time; and the circumstances may be such; that these natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to give such money to their brothers, even if they don’t want to. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong, the native under its impact may have to provide financial aid to his brother throughout his life, on account of one reason or the other.

Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to care for their brothers for a long period of time and they may have to provide food, shelter and other necessary resources to their brothers; even though they may not want to do so or they may themselves not be in a position to do so. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mars in the fourth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aquarius along with Moon, the native may have to face such issues. It should be noted that when Mars is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aquarius, the sign Cancer ruled by Moon falls in the ninth house of such horoscope. Hence the affliction caused by Mars to Moon in the fourth house of this horoscope forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope.

The native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to take care of his younger brother for a long period of time or for a very long period of time due to various reasons, depending on his overall horoscope. For instance, if malefic Saturn is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with malefic Sun; the native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may lose his father at a young age. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may be the eldest brother and he may have to raise his siblings by working hard, as their mother may not engage in a profession.

At the same time, if malefic Rahu is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo and malefic Ketu is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius along with malefic Mars and Moon when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses, the problem may intensify. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may lose his father as well as his mother at a young age; and the siblings of this native may become the sole responsibility of this native. Hence the native may have to take care of them and he may have to do a lot for them, due to the impact of such Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

It should be noted that the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh is not likely to receive much credit for all his efforts; as his siblings may not approve of him much, and they may even be jealous of the native. This is once again a karmic settlement from the past life. Since the native had troubled his siblings in his past life, he has such Pitra Dosh in his horoscope due to which he may have to do a lot for his siblings and he may still not receive much credit for his efforts; as he had already received the benefits in advance, in his past life.

Looking at more possibilities, some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may remain jobless and without any money; and they may have to depend on their brothers for their bread and butter. Though their brothers may provide such bread and butter, they may treat these natives very badly and they may make them feel small every now and then, in front of many people. For example, if malefic Mars forms Pitra Dosh in the twelfth house of a horoscope by virtue of its presence along with debilitated Sun in the sign of Libra, the native may face such problems. The native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may remain jobless from time to time and he may have to depend on his brother for help.

Though his brother may help him, he may treat him very bad and he may make him feel small whenever he asks for such help, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh. The native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may not receive proper help from his brother in time of need, even when his brother may be well capable of helping him out; and he may have to do a lot in return. For instance, if the native having such Pitra Dosh needs USD 500 in order to meet his expenses and he asks his brother for this amount of money, he may not get it. Though the brother of this native may be capable of giving him even an amount of USD 1000, he may give something like USD 300, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.

The brother of this native may engage in such practice in order to make him suffer. Hence he may help him meet his ends with difficulty and he may not give anything more. At the same time, the brother of this native may ask him to do many of his jobs in return; and such jobs may not be very good in nature. For example, the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to drop and pick the children of his brother from school, even when his brother may afford a school bus easily. Similarly, his brother may ask this native to get his car serviced, get some of his bills paid at different offices and many other such jobs, which may be given to the native with the intention that he is worth nothing more than doing such jobs.

Hence the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to do much more for his brother, in return of financial help received from him, and he may also have to face insult at times; as his brother may say bad or very bad words to him from time to time. This is once again the settlement of karmic debt from past life, due to which the native gets afflicted by such Pitra Dosh which can make him serve his brother as a servant or even as a slave; and he may not receive much in return. This is why you should always be watchful while engaging in bad karmas as you may have to pay very high prices for them in the long run.

The formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in third house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors betrayed or harmed their closest friends or their real brothers for the sake of something; and some of them may have either killed their own brothers or their betrayals may have resulted in the deaths of their brothers in past lives. The sufferings of such brothers formed karmic debt of Mars on the native and as a result, malefic Mars forms Pitra Dosh in the third house of his horoscope, which can make the native suffer death like pain on the hands of his own brothers or his closest friends. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and supported by other malefic planets; the brother of the native may kill him in order to gain some profits from his death.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Venus when malefic Sun is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Virgo, malefic Mercury is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo and malefic retrograde Jupiter is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries, the native may face serious problems. The brother of this native may form a physical relationship with the wife of this native and provoked by his wife, he may kill this native suffering from such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets.

Mars also signifies physical strength and masculine power. Hence the natives who have misused their strength and power to trouble and harm people in their past lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes. For example, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the seventh house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors misused their physical strength by physically hurting or beating their wives or by keeping their wives like prisoners in their past lives. The wife of such a native may have suffered a lot, which formed karmic debt of Venus as well as Mars and as a result, malefic Mars and Venus may form Pitra Dosh in the seventh house of the horoscope of the native.

For instance, if malefic Mars is placed in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Taurus along with malefic Venus and Sun, such Pitra Dosh may be formed. Both Mars and Venus being malefic in nature may form Pitra Dosh in this horoscope, which can make the native suffer on account of various types of problems in his married life. The wife of this native may file a police case against him and he may have to spend some time in prison, along with facing many other types of problems due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.

At the same time, if malefic Mercury is placed in eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with Moon, double Pitra Dosh may be formed in this horoscope, as Moon being the lord of the ninth house may get afflicted by malefic Mercury. The native under the impact of such double Pitra Dosh may have to face serious problems due to his wife and if there is no strong grace saving planet in his horoscope, the wife of this native may get him killed through a planned murder, primarily in order to grab his wealth or in order to benefit from his life insurance policy. Since it is a karmic settlement from the past life, the wife of this native is likely to escape the punishment for such murder, as she had already suffered such punishment in advance, during her past life.

Mars also signifies arms and weapons, as well as the people dealing in professional spheres which require the use of weapons. Accordingly, the natives who have misused their weapons in past lives to gain undue advantages or to hurt innocent people are likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh. For example, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the first, third, sixth or eighth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had misused their positions of authority and they had wrongfully hurt, injured or killed innocent people with the weapons possessed by them in their previous lives.

This formed karmic debt of Mars and as a result, this type of Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope of the native due to which the native may have to suffer from injuries inflicted by sharp weapons or other weapons, many times in his life. Here again, the quantum of such injuries sustained by such native depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh as well as on the overall tone of his horoscope, which further depends on the quantum of crimes committed by him in his past life, related to the domain of Mars. In an extreme case of its type, the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may get killed in an act of violence, by sustaining fatal injuries through weapons.

The natives who have misused their physical strength in their previous lives by beating or torturing other people are also likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh formed in their horoscope of this life. For example, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the first, fourth, sixth or ninth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had misused their physical strength to harm other people in their previous lives. This formed karmic debt of Mars and as a result, malefic Mars forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of such native and the native may be born physically crippled or he may lose his limb or limbs in an accident. As a result, the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to look to other people, even in order to complete his daily routines, which again gives the message that misuse of power can leave you handicapped and dependent on others.

Similarly, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Mars can indicate many other types of bad karmas related to the significances of Mars which were done by the native or his ancestors in their past lives. Such karmas formed karmic debt related to Mars due to which Mars becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native. Like always, the type of problems witnessed by a native suffering from such Pitra Dosh and the quantum of such problems depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by such native in his past lives.

Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Mercury signifies sisters, daughters, sisters in law, wisdom, intelligence, speech, communication skills, analytical ability, sense of business and trade; parrots, young girls below the age of 12 years and many other types of people and things. When Mercury is malefic in a horoscope and it afflicts Sun by virtue of its placement in some house of the horoscope along with Sun, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope due to malefic Mercury. Similarly, if malefic and fully active Mercury is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope or it is placed with the lord of the ninth house in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope. Pitra Dosh formed by Mercury can trouble the native with many types of problems which may differ from person to person depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

The formation of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Mercury in a horoscope indicates that the native or his ancestors have either committed bad karmas or crimes related to the significances of Mercury in their past lives or they have misused the abilities given by Mercury. Such acts lead to the formation of karmic debt of Mercury and as a result, mercury becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in the present life horoscope of the native. The field of impact of such Pitra Dosh and the quantum of damage done by it depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas done by the native in his past life, as one of his ancestors.

Mercury signifies sisters and accordingly the natives who have troubled or hurt their sisters in their past lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of present life. For example, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the seventh house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors may have troubled or hurt their sisters in order to please their wives or such native may have remained silent when the wife of such native troubled his sister in many different ways. The sufferings of such sister formed karmic debt of Mercury and as a result, malefic Mercury forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can make the native suffer from many types of problems in his marriage, depending on his overall horoscope.

In an extreme case of its type, the native under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer from a broken marriage; and the sister of this native may play a key role in breaking such marriage as she may be the one who causes misunderstandings between the native and his wife. The native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may keep troubling his wife according to the guidance of his sister who may be doing so in order to settle her karmic account with the native and his wife. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mercury in the seventh house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra along with debilitated Sun, the sister of this native may create misunderstandings between him and his wife.

Such native may have to face many problems in his marriage and he may not witness a good marriage. At the same time, if malefic debilitated Venus is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with malefic retrograde Mars when malefic Mercury and debilitated Sun form Pitra Dosh in the seventh house of this horoscope, the problem may intensify. The native troubled by the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other planets mentioned in this example may have to face a broken marriage on account of serious problems with his wife, and the sister of this native may create and intensify those problems.

The formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the twelfth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors may have troubled, bothered, cheated or forsaken their sisters in their past lives. The sufferings of such sisters formed karmic debt of Mercury and as a result, this type of Pitra Dosh is forms in the horoscope of the native, which can trouble the native on account of many types of problems related to or caused by his sister. For example, some natives suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to face social disgrace due to the bad conducts done by their sisters, like the sisters of these natives may engage in excessive drinking, bad company and in many other types of vices. The types of problems faced by the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh as well as the quantum of such problems depend on the strength of such Pitra Dosh and on the overall tone of his horoscope.

In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the sister of such native may run away with someone or she may get involved in a sex scandal; exposing the native to much social disgrace and shame. For instance, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mercury in the twelfth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic exalted Sun and Rahu, malefic Ketu is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra and malefic retrograde Mars is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aquarius, the native may face such problem. The sister of this native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may get involved in a sex scandal or in an immoral physical relation and the native may have to face a lot of disgrace due to such act of his sister, apart from facing many other types of problems due to such act.

Some other natives suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to bear the responsibility of their sisters for long periods of time or for their entire lives due to various reasons. For instance, a native under the impact of this type of Pitra Dosh may have to bear the responsibility of his sister as she may either not get married or her husband may not be able to provide her properly with sufficient resources. Hence the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to bear a big part of her responsibilities or he may have to bear all the responsibilities related to her, depending on his overall horoscope.

Looking at one more possibility created by such Pitra Dosh, the sister of such native may suffer from some disease or disorder and the native may have to spend big amount of money and time towards the treatment of such disease. The amount of time and money spent by this native towards the treatment of such disease depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh and on the overall tone of his horoscope, which further depend on the quantum of karmic debt owed by the native to his sister. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the native may have to take care of his divorced, widowed or diseased sister throughout his life. This is once again a settlement of the karmic debt owed by the native to his sister, which appears in the form of Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury.

Moving on with more possibilities, Pitra Dosh formed by Mercury in the fifth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors may have troubled, hurt or even killed their daughters or sisters in their previous lives and they escaped the punishments for such crimes. This formed karmic debt of Mercury and as a result, malefic Mercury may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can trouble the native on account of many types of problems which may be imposed on him through his daughter or daughters. The natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh generally do not have sons and they only have daughters who keep troubling these natives on account of one thing or the other.

For instance, some natives under the strong influence of this type of Pitra Dosh may give birth to physically disabled or mentally disturbed daughters; and they may have to spend the rest of their lives taking care of their disabled daughters. These natives may have to go through much pain and agony due to the poor or very poor health conditions of their daughters; as well as due to the amount of time and money they may have to spend in order to get their daughters treated. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face social disgrace due to their daughters and they may also have to suffer from many other types of problems coming to them through their daughters.

The daughters of some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may be characterless, they may engage in many types of vices as well as in immoral physical relations with many people, which may trouble these natives a lot. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may kill someone who may have an illicit love affair with his daughter. As a result, the native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to serve a long sentence in prison by virtue of being convicted for such murder. This in reality is the settlement of karmic debt owed by the native to his daughter from his past life, who was troubled a lot or who was killed by the native in one of his past lives, as one of his ancestors. It should be noted that the lover of the daughter of this native, who gets killed in this example, is likely to be an accomplice of the native in his past life, and he may have helped him kill his daughter.

Considering one more case, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in the eighth house of a horoscope under some specific conditions can make the native suffer from the death of his daughter or sister at a young age. It should be noted that in many such cases, the daughter or the sister of such native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may leave a child behind her, who may become the sole responsibility of the native, as there may not be any other option due to the circumstances. This is once again a karmic settlement of the debt from past life which the native may have to pay by suffering due to Pitra Dosh formed by Mercury in this life.

The presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in some specific houses of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors may have killed their daughters in embryo state or they may have killed them right after their births due to not wanting daughters. This formed karmic debt of Mercury and as a result, this type of Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope of the native due malefic Mercury. Such Pitra Dosh can make the native wait till late or very late in his life in order to witness his first child. The intensity of this problem once again depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh and on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native in question. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may not have any children throughout his life, despite his best efforts, and he may have to suffer from a lot of mental pain due to being childless.

This is once again a karmic settlement from the past life of the native, which executes itself through such Pitra Dosh and which says if you kill your children before birth, you shall remain childless. Considering a practical example of this type, if Pitra Dosh is formed by malefic Mercury in a horoscope due to its presence in the fifth house of such horoscope in the sign of Leo along with malefic Jupiter; and one more Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Ketu with Sun in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Virgo, the native may face problems related to children. The native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh may not have his first child till the age of 41 or he may not have any children at all, throughout his life.

The natives who have committed bad karmas or crimes related to young girls of less than 12 years of age in their past lives are also likely to be afflicted by this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. For example, the presence of Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury in the third, sixth, eighth or eleventh house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors physically molested, raped or tortured young girl in their previous lives and they escaped the punishments. This formed karmic debt of Mercury and as a result, malefic Mercury forms this type of Pitra Dosh in the present life horoscope of the native, which can make the native suffer from some of the most serious types of problems.

For instance, some natives suffering from such Pitra Dosh may be born with permanent disabilities which may keep troubling them throughout their lives. Some other natives having such Pitra Dosh may suffer from serious and fatal diseases like cancers, tumors, AIDS and other such types of diseases which can trouble these natives and which can inflict so much pain on these natives for long periods of time, before killing them finally. Some other natives suffering from such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer from continuous physical molestation for many years of their lives due to the strong malefic influence of this defect.

This is once again a karmic settlement from the past life which brings such problems to these natives through Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury, so that they may feel the kind of pain they inflicted upon the others. Similarly, all other natives who as their ancestors may have committed bad karmas or crimes related to girls less than 12 years of age in their previous lives are likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. The amount of punishment rendered by such Pitra Dosh to a native under its impact depends on the quantum of bad karmas committed by the native in his past life. Considering a practical example, if a combination of malefic Mercury, malefic Venus, malefic Rahu and Sun is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini, strong Pitra Dosh may be formed in the horoscope.

This is due to the fact that Sun is being afflicted by three malefic planets in this case; and hence the Pitra Dosh so formed may be very strong. As a result, the native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may get afflicted with a fatal disease like AIDS and he may die at a young age. Similarly, if a combination of malefic Mercury, malefic Moon, malefic Ketu and Venus forms Pitra Dosh in the sixth house of a horoscope in the sign of Cancer, the native may have to suffer from sexual abuse for many years during his childhood. It should be noted that when this combination is present in the sixth house in the sign of Cancer, Venus becomes the lord of the ninth house where the sign Libra ruled by Venus falls. Hence the affliction of these three malefic planets to Venus may result in this type of Pitra Dosh which may trouble the native with this type of problem during his childhood.

Moving on with other possibilities, the natives who have misused their wisdom, cleverness, speech abilities, communications skills and other good things coming under the significance of Mercury in their past lives, are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh which is formed by malefic Mercury. In fact, this is the most common type of Pitra Dosh which can be found in a horoscope and the native suffering from it generally suffers on account of bad luck in some particular sphere of his life. For example, the presence of Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury in the first, second, third, fifth, ninth, tenth or eleventh house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had continuously misused their wisdom and cleverness to cheat and deceive people in order to gain materialistic benefits from them. The misuse of the abilities given by Mercury formed karmic debt on the native and as a result, malefic Mercury may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the present life horoscope of the native, which may trouble him with overall bad luck in his professional sphere, apart from causing many other types of problems.

The native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to struggle a lot in his professional sphere, despite having good academic qualification, despite being clever; and despite being well capable of succeeding in many professions. The native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may suffer from such bad luck that he may not be able to witness significant professional success till late or very late in his life, despite having everything but luck for such success. If such native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh engages in a job, no matter how hard and smart he may work; his boss may never be happy with him and he may keep looking for ways to trouble him. Similarly, if this native engages in a business, the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may trouble him with financial losses and setbacks again and again, though he may not make many wrong decisions. For instance, a native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may face big financial losses due to sudden fire at his business place, robbery at his work place, betrayal of his business partner, sudden devaluation of the goods or services he offers; and other such problems.

Like always, this is once again nature’s way of telling this native that if you misuse your wisdom and cleverness, this gift will become your curse and you will become a failure despite all your cleverness. Many natives having big academic, technical and professional qualifications; and still sitting idle or engaging in low paying jobs are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes. Since the number of this type of natives is much higher than the natives suffering from any other type of Pitra Dosh, this type of Pitra Dosh proves to be the most common type of Pitra Dosh. This fact indicates that a large number of people have a tendency to misuse their wisdom and cleverness for financial or other types of gains, which makes them have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of next lives.

It should be noted that there is a fine line between the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope and the formation of Budhaditya Yog in a horoscope; as both of these concepts are formed due to the presence of Mercury with Sun. Hence Pitra Dosh formed due to a combination of malefic Mercury and Sun is commonly misunderstood as Budhaditya Yog by many astrologers; whereas there is a big difference between these two. Budhaditya Yog is formed due to the combination of benefic Sun and benefic Mercury in a horoscope; and the presence of Budhaditya Yog in a horoscope can bless the native with great professional success, fame, financial prosperity and a position of power and authority among many other benefic things. On karmic level, the formation of Budhaditya Yog in a horoscope indicates that the native had used his wisdom and knowledge for good purposes in his past life; and as a result, he is blessed by this yoga, which can make him prosper a lot through his knowledge and wisdom in this life.

On the other hand, Pitra Dosh of this type is formed in a horoscope due to the combination of malefic Mercury with benefic or malefic Sun, which can devoid the native of professional success despite his knowledge and intelligence. The presence of such Pitra Dosh in a horoscope indicates that the native may get no value or little value for his knowledge, intelligence and other good qualities rendered by Mercury; since he had misused these qualities in his previous lives. Hence these qualities may become useless for him in this life due to the presence of such Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

Therefore, Budhaditya Yog should not be confused with Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury; as both of them give almost opposite results to the native in many spheres of his life. It is interesting to note that though both Budhaditya Yog and Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury can bless the native with wisdom and intelligence; these qualities may not prove beneficial for the natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh. On the contrary, some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may make many enemies due to their cleverness which may be used in wrong situations, due to the malefic impact of this defect.

For example, on being caught by a policeman while breaking a traffic rule, the native benefitting from Budhaditya Yog may politely apologize and promise to be careful in the future. Hence this native may get away with minimum punishment or the policeman may let him go without any punishment, as he may be impressed with his politeness and his use of very good words, while speaking to him. On the other hand the native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may intensify his problem in the same situation, by using his cleverness and intelligence in a wrong way. Instead of being polite or instead of apologizing, the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may start arguing with the policeman on various contexts.

Such native may find faults with the uniform of the policeman, he may blame him that he has only stopped him while he is letting other people go, who have made the same offence; or he may say something else like this, which may be true but which should not be said in this situation. As a result, the policeman may get angry and he may make this native suffer from the maximum amount of penalty or punishment possible for the offence committed by him. You see, how two people having the same combination of Sun and Mercury in the same house of their horoscopes may behave differently in the same situation; and accordingly they may witness different results. Hence Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Mercury should not be confused with Budhaditya Yog as they have the opposite effects, though they may both be formed due to a combination of Sun and Mercury in a horoscope.

Similarly, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Mercury can indicate many other types of bad karmas related to the significances of Mercury which were done by the native or his ancestors in their past lives. Such karmas formed karmic debt related to Mercury due to which Mercury becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native. Like always, the type of problems witnessed by a native suffering from such Pitra Dosh and the quantum of such problems depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by such native in his past lives.

Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.

When Rahu is malefic in a horoscope and it afflicts Sun by virtue of its placement in some house of the horoscope along with Sun, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope due to malefic Rahu. Similarly, if malefic and fully active Rahu is placed in the ninth house of a horoscope or it is placed with the lord of the ninth house in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope. Pitra Dosh formed by Rahu can trouble the native with many types of problems which may differ from person to person depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

Rahu signifies quick wit, tricks, the ability to take risks and manipulative abilities among many other things. The natives who have used these abilities to cheat or con other people, to engage in professions like being thieves, smugglers or other such type of criminals in their past lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscope of this life. The engagement of a native in such activities during his past life as one of his ancestors forms karmic debt of Rahu due to which the native may suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh formed by malefic Rahu in this life. Such Pitra Dosh can trouble the native with many types of problems depending on the type of bad karmas committed by the native, as well as the quantum of such bad karmas.

For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the sixth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors continuously engaged in practices like thefts, criminal activities, smuggling or cheating other people during their past lives and they managed to escape the punishments for such offences. The sufferings of the people troubled by such native as well as the misuse of the abilities given by Rahu formed karmic debt on the native due to which malefic Rahu forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which can make the native suffer in many possible ways, depending on the overall horoscope of the native.

Some natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from health problems and diseases of various types. If such Pitra Dosh is mild in strength, the native may suffer from a disease which may be permanent in nature but which may be kept under control with proper treatment. However, if such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, it can afflict the native with a serious disease which may cause much pain to him and which may also reduce his lifespan.

In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native under its impact may suffer from a fatal disease which may kill him at a young or very young age. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Rahu in the sixth house of a horoscope in the sign of Taurus along with Sun; malefic Venus is also placed in the sixth house of this horoscope and malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Moon, the native may suffer a lot. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may get afflicted by a life threatening disease which may trouble him till the end of his life and which may also reduce his lifespan.

At the same time, if a malefic combination of debilitated Jupiter and exalted Mars is placed in the second house of this horoscope in the sign of Capricorn when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may intensify. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may suffer from a fatal disease which may kill him at a young or very young age. Such native may die during his age of 28 to 33, unless there is a strong life saving planet in his horoscope.

Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may engage in criminal activities and they may have to spend long periods of time in prisons on account of punishments which are generally much harsh compared to the quantum of offences committed by these natives. The amount of punishment received by a native of this type depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh and on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native, which further depend on the quantum of bad karmas committed by the native in his past life, as one of his ancestors. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets, the native under its malefic impact may have to spend more than seven years in prison, by virtue of being convicted for a crime, which he may not have duly committed.

For instance, a native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may become a part of a criminal gang and he may commit some violent type of offences, which may not be very big in quantum. When the running time is bad, the native under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may accompany some of his gang members in order to beat or injure someone due to various reasons. However in the heat of the moment, other gang members of this native may kill that person and though the native may neither had any such intentions, nor he may be an active part of this offence as he may only be standing at the scene of crime and doing nothing much, he may become an accomplice in such crime.

As a result, the native may get convicted by a court of law for being an accomplice in this crime as he was a part of the killer gang, and he may receive a prison sentence of more than ten years. It should be noted that the native suffering from such Pitra Dosh may not have even touched the person who died during such violence and he may only have been a viewer. However, he may still receive a big punishment for this crime due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh. This is once again a balancing act of nature and the native is paying the karmic debt of Rahu formed on him during his past lives when he committed serious crimes and escaped punishments for such crimes.

The natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh are also vulnerable to financial losses and tensions coming from the law of the land or through court cases and they may face problems from this side from time to time; whether they are involved in some criminal activities or not.  Some of these natives may be constantly disturbed through litigations or court cases on account of one thing or the other, even when they may not have done much to deserve such things, due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.  Such problems and troubles are the settlements of karmic debt formed on these natives from their past lives, it may appear in the form of this type of punishment and it may trouble them a lot. The natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh are generally unlucky regarding legal litigations and some of these natives may have to face many types of problems through court decisions going against them.

Rahu also signifies many types of drugs and narcotic substances. Hence the natives who as their ancestors have dealt in illegal trade of narcotics in their previous lives are likely to have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of present life. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the second house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors engaged in smuggling and illegal distribution of harmful substances during their past lives and many innocent people suffered due to the illegal drugs distributed by them. The sufferings of such people formed karmic debt of Rahu and as a result, malefic Rahu may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which may trouble him through various types of health problems and diseases, among other problems. The natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may get addicted to drugs like heroin, cocaine, brown sugar or other such potentially harmful drugs and they may have to face health related problems due to regular consumption of such drugs.

The amount of health loss suffered by a native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh depends on the strength of this defect and on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native. A native having such Pitra Dosh of medium strength may get addicted to harmful substances, he may consume them on regular basis and he may face health issues from time to time. However, such native may not witness serious health issues till his age of 41 and the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may only show its worst effects after this age of the native. On the other hand, if such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may start consuming harmful substances on regular basis as well is in heavy quantities from his young age, and he may suffer from serious health conditions. Such native troubled by this type of Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may die young or very young due to drug overdose or due to serious health conditions caused by heavy consumption of drugs.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Rahu, debilitated Sun and Venus in the second house of a horoscope in the sign of Libra when malefic Ketu is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries, the native may face such problems. It should be noted that malefic Rahu afflicts Sun as well as Venus which is the lord of the ninth house in this case. Hence double Pitra Dosh is being formed in this example. The native under the malefic impact of such double Pitra Dosh may get addicted to harmful drugs and he may face health problems which may become serious after his age of 41 and he may have to suffer a lot after this age. The malefic impact of such double Pitra Dosh can reduce the lifespan of this native and he may die during his age of 41 to 50, due to serious health conditions caused by the use of harmful drugs over a long period of time.

At the same time, if malefic Mars is placed in the first house of this horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with malefic retrograde Mercury; and malefic Saturn is placed in the fourth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius when all other malefic planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate. The native under the combined effect of such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may get addicted to harmful drugs from his young age and he may start consuming them in heavy quantities. As a result, this native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may face serious health problems and he may die during his age of 28 to 38, depending on his overall horoscope.

Apart from this, the natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh are also prone to lose big amount of money, respect and social status by virtue of being addicted to harmful drugs. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native may consume harmful drugs on regular basis and he may become worthy of doing nothing due to such drugs. Hence this native may not engage in a permanent profession and he may live on the mercy of other people; like a bagger, asking his nears and dears for money in order to purchase drugs. This is a karmic settlement from the past life and the native is paying the karmic debt of Rahu by suffering from all such problems, through this type of Pitra Dosh.

Rahu also signifies politicians and diplomats; particularly the politicians who have gained power through their abilities to manipulate and manage things. Accordingly, the natives who have misused these abilities given by Rahu in their past lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the fourth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors possessed a post of political power or they were powerful diplomats in their past lives and they misused their abilities and powers to cheat public and make money through wrong means. The sufferings of such people as well as the misuse of the abilities given by Rahu formed karmic debt and as a result, malefic Rahu forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which may trouble him with many types of problems, especially with health related problems.

It should be noted that the natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh are likely to suffer from health problems which may be psychological in nature, instead of suffering from physical type of health problems. Hence a native having such Pitra Dosh in his horoscope may face mental disorders and he may have to suffer a lot due to such health problems. The quantum of such sufferings depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh as well as on the overall tone of the horoscope of the native, which further depends on the quantum of bad karmas committed by the native in his past life, as one of his ancestors.

In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may suffer from a serious mental disorder and may have to spend many years of his life in a mental asylum towards the treatment of such disorder. This is once again a way of nature to show us that if we cheat and rob people by virtue of our great mental abilities, such abilities may be taken away from us and we may have to suffer from serious mental problems, by virtue of this type of Pitra Dosh. In simple words, if you use your enhanced mental abilities as a weapon to hurt other people, the same weapon may backfire and it may trouble you a lot in your next life.

Considering a practical example of this type, if malefic Rahu is placed in the fourth house of a horoscope in the sign of Capricorn along with malefic Jupiter, Sun and Mercury; and malefic Ketu is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Cancer, double Pitra Dosh may be formed in the horoscope. Malefic Rahu and malefic Jupiter may afflict Sun as well as Mercury which is the lord of the ninth house in this example, forming double Pitra Dosh in the horoscope. As a result, the native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh may suffer from a serious mental disorder and he may have to spend many years of his life in a mental asylum in order to get this problem treated. If such Pitra Dosh is very strong and more malefic planets add to the horoscope of this native, he may get admitted to a mental asylum during his young age; and he may never get out of it till the day of his death.

Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face public disgrace by virtue of their involvement in many types of scandals and they may have to face serious reputation losses and professional losses through such scandals even though they may not actually be guilty of what they have been accused of. For instance, a native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may be accused by a woman that he has physically molested her or even raped her, when the native may not have done anything like this and the woman may simply be doing so by means of a planned conspiracy.

However, the native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may have to face a lot of bad reputation and many other types of losses; and the truth of this story may never come out. It means that though the native may ultimately get out of these allegations by virtue of an agreement reached with this woman; such agreement may cost him a lot and the common public may always be of the opinion that the native was guilty of such molestation or rape. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native may get convicted in a false rape case and he may have to spend many years of his life in prison.

The family of in-laws is also ruled by Rahu and accordingly the natives who have troubled their relatives in law during their previous lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the seventh or eighth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors had continuously troubled their relatives in law or the members of the families of their wives on account of one thing or the other. The sufferings of these people formed karmic debt of Rahu and as a result, malefic Rahu may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can trouble him a lot through his relatives in law.

Some natives under the impact of this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face separations from their parental families on account of their wives and in laws; putting so much pressure on these natives for such separations; or on account of some conspiracies plotted by the in laws of such natives. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face long separations from their wives who may go to their parents and refuse to come back due to various reasons. These natives troubled by such Pitra Dosh may have to keep visiting the houses of their in laws and they may have to request them again and again to send their wives back and in the process, they may have to face humiliation through their in laws.

Similarly, some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face legal litigations filed by their in laws, even when they may not be guilty of the charges imposed on them. Such natives under the malefic impact of this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face social disgrace and they may also have to spend some time in prisons, due to such litigations or police cases. Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to keep giving money to their in laws on account of one thing or the other and this state of affairs may continue for very long parts of their lives.

In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the in laws of such native may kill him for the sake of his money and property or for some other reason. All the above mentioned problems happen to the native primarily due to the fact that the native intentionally engaged in bad karmas towards his in laws during his past life which led to the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh in his horoscope of present life. Hence such Pitra Dosh may make the native suffer through his in laws, where the quantum of such sufferings depends on the quantum of bad karmas committed by the native towards his in laws in his past life, as one of his ancestors.

Rahu also signifies strangers, birds, foreign lands, foreigners, electricians, plumbers, psychics and many other types of people, places and things. Accordingly, the natives who have engaged in bad karmas towards these significances of Rahu in their previous lives can also have this type of Pitra Dosh in their horoscopes of present life. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in the twelfth house of a horoscope can indicate that native or his ancestors killed or harmed many birds in their past lives, or they engaged in bad karmas or crimes towards foreigners or foreign lands. This formed karmic debt of Rahu and as a result, malefic Rahu may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native, which can make him suffer from a variety of problems.

A native under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to spend many years of his life in a foreign country, away from his family and without any success. In an extreme case of its type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the native under its impact may not only spend many years of his life in a far away land, he may also die a lonely death in such land, away from his family and relatives.

Some other natives troubled by such Pitra Dosh may have to spend long periods of time in hospitals or prisons of foreign countries due to various reasons, depending on their overall horoscopes. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other malefic planets of a specific type, the natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may die in a prison or hospital of foreign country after suffering from physical or mental pain. Like always, the quantum of problems faced by a native of this type depends on the quantum of bad karmas committed by such native in his past life, towards the significances of Rahu.

Similarly, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Rahu can indicate many other types of bad karmas related to the significances of Rahu which were done by the native or his ancestors in their past lives. Such karmas formed karmic debt related to Rahu due to which Rahu becomes malefic and it forms Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of the native. Like always, the type of problems witnessed by a native suffering from such Pitra Dosh and the quantum of such problems depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by such native in his past lives.

Vedic astrology is equipped with many remedies that can reduce the strength of Pitra Dosh formed in a horoscope. These remedies include the application of gemstones, yantras, poojas and charities. Doing suitable remedies can certainly help reduce the strength of this defect and the native may witness better or much better results in the spheres of his life, which are affected by Pitra Dosh in his horoscope.
