Pitra dosh is undoubtedly one of the most feared doshas which can form in a horoscope according to Vedic Jyotish and the presence of Pitra dosh in a horoscope can trouble the native with various kinds of problems and misfortunes in all spheres of his life which can vary from horoscope to horoscope depending upon the placement of Pitra dosh in the horoscope and depending upon some other important factors present in the horoscope. Sun is considered as the king among navagraha and it represents our soul, the life giving and life continuing energy or source, father, forefathers and ancestors among many other important things which makes it the most important planet in every horoscope and accordingly any afflictions to Sun from one or more than one malefic planets in a horoscope can cause serious problems to the native. 9th house of the horoscope represents our father, forefathers, ancestors, our share of luck that we have brought in this life based on good or bad karmas done in past lives and many other important things and this house of horoscope is also considered as one of the most important houses of horoscope since there is virtually nothing that a man can do without good luck. If Sun or 9th house of the horoscope is afflicted by one or more than one negative planets in a horoscope, Pitra dosh is formed in that horoscope which can cause various kinds of troubles, problems and misfortunes for the native depending upon the house of placement of such Pitra dosh, the planets forming such Pitra dosh, the strength and nature of Sun, the strength of malefic planets afflicting the Sun and many other important factors present in a horoscope. We have already discussed in previous articles as to what kind of possible problems can come to the native when Pitra dosh is formed in various houses of the horoscope and in this article we will discuss about the type of Pitra dosh which is formed by the Sun itself.
Sun as we know is the king among navagraha and it stands for our soul, the life giving energy, the ability to produce children, especially male children, father, forefathers and ancestors, house of government and many other important things. When Sun is working negatively in a horoscope which means that Sun is a malefic planet in a horoscope and it is afflicting the 9th house of the horoscope primarily due to its placement in 9th house of the horoscope, Pitra dosh is formed in that horoscope which has been formed by the Sun itself. The reason for the formation of this kind of Pitra dosh lies in bad karmas done by the native in his past lives which affected the significances of Sun in a negative way. The Sun as we know, stands for our father, forefathers and ancestors and therefore the formation of Pitra dosh due to the presence of malefic Sun itself in 9th house of horoscope which is also called the house of ancestors, means that the native has done some bad karmas in his past lives which have affected his ancestors in a negative way and hence the ancestors of the native are cursing him and this curse has appeared as Pitra dosh formed by malefic Sun, in 9th house of his horoscope. The natives who have not obeyed their father and grandfather and who have given troubles, problems and disgrace to their father and grandfather most of the times in their past lives, are likely to have this kind of Pitra dosh in their horoscopes. The natives who have not done the after death rituals of their father, grandfather and their relevant forefathers in their past lives are very likely to have this type of Pitra dosh in their horoscopes.
It should be noted here that Pitra dosh is defined as The Curse of Ancestors by many vedic astrologers and pandits which is not true in most cases of Pitra dosh but which can be true in this particular case of Pitra dosh as the natives suffering from this type of Pitra dosh may not have performed the after death rituals for their father or forefathers in their past lives, due to which their father or forefathers were not able to receive the benefits of these rituals and they had to suffer during their afterlife journey and hence they cursed the native and that curse has appeared as Pitra dosh formed by the Sun in 9th house of their horoscopes. The natives having this type of Pitra dosh in 9th house of their horoscopes either do not have children or they have to suffer great deal and throughout their lives on account of problems given by or related to their children. For example, some natives suffering from this type of Pitra dosh may give birth to physically or mentally incapable children and such natives may have to attend to these children, throughout their lives and they may have to spend significant amount of money, resources and time in order to take care of their troubled children whereas some other natives may give birth to children who prove to be their enemies in disguise and who start troubling these natives right from their early childhood on account of their bad behavior, trouble causing attitude, engagement in bad company and other such habits and these children generally cause the downfall of native’s family line when such children grow young. Some of these children may fall into bad company and they may waste most of these natives’ earned money in bad habits like gambling, drinking, drugs, excessive indulgence in sexual activities and other such vices and in some extreme cases such children may commit some serious criminal offence due to which they may have to spend many years of their life in jail or prison which can bring great social disgrace and long lasting troubles for their parents who are suffering from Pitra dosh formed by malefic Sun in 9th house of their horoscope.
The Sun also represents the house of government and hence this type of Pitra dosh can also appear in the horoscopes of the natives who intentionally committed crimes and frauds during their past lives which incurred problems and losses to the government of the country or state they were living in and such natives were either not caught by the law enforcing agencies or they managed to escape the punishment by getting acquitted in the trials even when they were guilty. Hence their punishment for the crimes done towards the government in their past lives was not delivered to them and it was pending and as a result such natives tend to have this type of Pitra dosh in their horoscopes for this life. The natives suffering from this type of Pitra dosh which has been formed in their horoscopes due to unpunished crimes done towards the governments in their past lives are likely to suffer penalties and losses through the house of government and law of the land during this lifetime. For example some natives under the strong malefic influence of this type of Pitra dosh may have to pay the financial penalties imposed by some government office on their children due to some misconduct or criminal activity of their children who are not able to pay these penalties and hence the native may have to pay them whereas some other natives may themselves engage in some tax stealing or such kind of crime on small level and they may get penalized by some government office and such penalty can be very big compared to the scale of their offence. In some extreme cases of this type of Pitra dosh, the native may have to go to prison or jail for a long period of time for an offence which he did not commit willingly or which he committed accidently. For example, some friends of the native may commit a serious offence like murder in the presence of native which happens suddenly and the native does not have anything to do with it but he may get caught by local law enforcing agencies and he may get convicted for this crime and he may have to spend many years in jail for this crime. Considering another example, a native may get intercepted by local police and he may be charged with the smuggling of narcotics when all he did was give lift to some stranger or help some friend moving from one place to another not knowing that such stranger or friend was in possession of illegal drugs and such native may have to spend many years in jail for this crime even if he is finally acquitted from the case. To summarize, the natives suffering from this type of Pitra dosh formed by malefic Sun in 9th house of the horoscope may have to suffer penalties or punishment for the crimes they have not done at all or they may have to suffer much bigger punishments and penalties compared to the scale of crime committed by them which is primarily due to the reason that such natives had escaped punishments and penalties in their past lives and they are paying them now.
Similarly, Pitra dosh formed by malefic Sun in 9th house of a horoscope can be present due to various other reasons which are due to bad karmas or crimes done by native in his past lives and which are related to the significances of the Sun and accordingly Sun forms a Pitra dosh in their horoscopes in order to settle its account with the native in this lifetime. The kind of bad karmas or crimes done by a native related to some specific significance of the Sun can be judged from the kind of troubles, problems and misfortunes that the native is going to suffer in this life due to malefic influence of this type of Pitra dosh. This fact can be clearly seen from the above mentioned two examples of Pitra dosh formed by the Sun where natives engaged in different kinds of bad karmas related to the significances of the Sun and accordingly they suffer from different kinds of problems in their present lives.
