When Ketu 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 Ketu. Similarly, if malefic and fully active Ketu 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 Ketu can trouble the native with many types of problems which may differ from person to person depending on the overall tone of their horoscopes.

Ketu is a fierce planet like Mars and it behaves very much like Mars. Accordingly, it shares many of its significances with Mars. For example, Ketu also signifies people engaging in army, police force and other such professional spheres which come under the significance of Mars. Apart from the significances shared with Mars, Ketu signifies spiritual progress and spiritual people, people dealing in paranormal and occult fields, people dealing in diets and nutrition, chemists, pharmacists, people doing researches and people dealing in the history of the mankind and civilizations, people serving for orphanages and people doing services for organizations which work for the benefit of old and needy persons, people working for organizations which work for development of religion and spirituality, priests, investigators, detectives, historians, archaeologists, geologists and many other things and people.

Ketu also represents male children after they are born whereas the ability to produce healthy male children in a male native is represented by the Sun. It also signifies disciples, orphans, dogs, court cases, litigations, travels, mentally retarded people, old people, people suffering from fears and phobias; and many other things places and people. Accordingly the natives who as their ancestors have committed bad karmas or crimes towards the significances of Ketu in their previous lives or who have misused the abilities given by Ketu to engage in bad karmas may suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh which is formed by malefic Ketu in their horoscopes of present lives.

Ketu signifies bravery, courage and the ability to engage in fights and battles; and accordingly the natives who have misused these abilities given by Ketu in their previous lives are likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. For example, the presence of this type of Pitra Dosh in a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors misused their courage, physical strength and bravery to scare and rob people in their previous lives. The sufferings of the people hurt by this native formed karmic debt of Ketu and as a result, malefic Ketu may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which may trouble him a lot on many fronts of his life.

Some natives under the malefic influence of this type of Pitra Dosh may be born with some physical or mental disabilities whereas some other natives under the impact of this type of Pitra Dosh may get afflicted by some serious diseases during their youth or middle ages. Such diseases can make these natives lose one or more than one limb due to which these natives may have to depend on other people; even in order to do their day to day work. The quantum of sufferings imposed by such Pitra Dosh on a native under its impact depends on the quantum of bad karmas done by the native in his past lives. If such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength, the native under its impact may be born with some irregularity in the function of one of his limbs, and he may have to suffer due to such irregularity, like he may have one of his hands or legs defective in a way that may not let it function properly, though it may still function.

On the other hand, if 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 be born with a major physical disability or he may lose one or more than one of his limb in an accident, during his young age. Such native may have to spend the rest of his life without a hand, an arm, a leg or without more than one limb due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh, and he may have to suffer a lot due to such disabilities.

Some other natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to undergo many surgeries during their life time and they may have to lose one or more than one body organ during such surgeries. For instance, a native suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may get his gall bladder removed due to malfunctioning of this organ, when such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength. Another native may get his kidney removed or uterus removed if such native happens to be a female, when this defect is strong and supported by other malefic planets of a specific type.

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 under its impact may lose his life during a major surgery or during a fatal accident. For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Ketu in the fourth house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with malefic debilitated Venus and Sun; and malefic Rahu is placed in the tenth house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces, the native may face such problems. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may suffer from the loss of an organ like gall bladder or even a kidney as these organs may start malfunctioning and they may disturb the overall working of the system of his body.

At the same time, if malefic Saturn is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo along with malefic Mercury; and malefic Mars is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio when all other malefic planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may intensify. The native under the collective influence of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may suffer from a serious health condition and he may die during the surgery performed in order to treat this native for such health condition.

Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may be aggressive in nature and such aggressive nature can make them engage in some type of fights; many times in their lives. Such fights can make these natives suffer on account of physical injuries and on account of police cases due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh.  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 get seriously injured or killed in a bloody fight; or he may kill a person in such fight and he may have to spend many years of his life in prison by virtue of being convicted for a murder.

Ketu also signifies male children, orphans and particularly male orphans and accordingly; the natives who have engaged in bad karmas or crimes towards male children or orphans in their previous lives are 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 fifth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors intentionally hurt, molested, harmed or killed young children during their previous lives. The sufferings of such children formed karmic debt on the native and as a result, malefic Ketu may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which can trouble him with problems related to children or with problems coming through children. Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may have to face many problems in order to produce children and they may not witness the birth of their first child till late or very late in their lives.

Some other natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may have to suffer on account of abortions of their children or from the birth of dead children and they may only witness live children after many abortions and miscarriages. 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 remain childless throughout his life. If such native happens to be a female native, she may not only remain childless due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh, she may also have to suffer from serious health problems related to her reproductive organs and she may even die due to such health problems.

For example, if in case of a female native, Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Ketu in the fifth house of her horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with Jupiter, she may face problems related to conceiving and delivering children. It should be noted that when a combination of malefic Ketu and Jupiter is placed in the fifth house of a horoscope in the sign of Scorpio, the sign Pisces ruled by Jupiter falls in the ninth house of such horoscope, which makes Jupiter the lord of the ninth house. Hence the affliction of malefic Ketu to Jupiter in this case forms Pitra Dosh and the female native having this defect may suffer from problems related to her reproductive system, and she may not be able to conceive and deliver children due to such problems, till late in her life.

This female native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may also have to face abortions and miscarriages before she may witness the birth of her first live child. At the same time, if Sun is also placed in the fifth house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Ketu and Jupiter; and a malefic combination of Saturn and Mars is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Sagittarius; the problem may intensify. The native under the collective influence of such double Pitra Dosh may face great difficulties in conceiving and delivering children. Though such female native may still deliver a child after many failed attempts to do so, she may have to pay a heavy price. The combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may trouble this female native with very serious health conditions during her period of conception and she may have to suffer of lot. If such Pitra Dosh is very strong and the running time is also very bad, this female native may die while delivering a child.

Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may give birth to children who are born to settle some old account with these natives. It means that such children are some enemies or victims of these natives from past lives, who suffered much pain on the hands of these natives and their ancestors; and who are now born to inflict the same kind of pain on these natives in their present lives. As a result, such children may trouble these natives by engaging in bad company, wasting and spoiling their hard earned money, reputation and name; and by making these natives suffer continuously on account of one thing or the other.

In case where such Pitra Dosh is strong in a horoscope, the children and especially the male children of the native may turn completely against him; and such children may trouble the native a lot. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may face a court case filed against him by his own son, where such court case may belong to some ancestral property or some other such thing.  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, a son of the native may plan an attack on the life of this native in order to grab his property and wealth. If there is no strong life saving planet in the horoscope of this native, the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may get him killed in such attack, planned by his own son.

Ketu also signifies black magic, psychics and other such types of practices which are done through dark and hidden forces of the nature. Accordingly, the natives who as their ancestors have used this type of knowledge to harm other people in their previous lives are 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 eighth house of a horoscope can indicate that the native or his ancestors troubled, harassed, harmed or even killed people with the help of dark forces of nature like black magic. This formed karmic debt of Ketu and as a result, malefic Ketu may form this type of Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native, which can trouble him with many types of problems depending on his overall horoscope.

Some natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from many types of health problems and diseases which may trouble them a lot and which may also reduce their lifespan. The quantum of such health problems and the amount of reduction in the lifespan of such natives depend on the strength of such Pitra Dosh as well as on the overall tone of the horoscopes of these natives. 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 under its impact may get afflicted with a fatal disease like some type of cancer, which may cause him great pain for a long period of time and which may ultimately claim his life at a relatively young age. The same type of extreme case of such Pitra Dosh may also make the native lose either his legs or hands in an accident and he may have to spend the rest of his life on the mercy of other people.

Some natives suffering from this type of Pitra Dosh may be troubled and possessed by spirits and other such paranormal forces; and they may have to spend long periods of time under the spell of such dark forces. Here again, the quantum of problems suffered by such natives depends on the quantum of troubles caused by these natives to other people in their past lives, as their 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 under its impact may even die due to a fatal attack by such spirits and dark forces.

Ketu also signifies disciples and students and accordingly the natives; who as teachers have misguided, mislead or misused their disciples or the teachers who have harmed or hurt their students in their past lives are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh. The people who have engaged in bad karmas or crimes towards dogs or other significances of Ketu in their previous lives as their ancestors are also likely to suffer from this type of Pitra Dosh in their present lives. As always, the type and quantum of problems faced by a native suffering from Pitra Dosh formed by Ketu depends on the type and quantum of bad karmas committed by him in his past life, towards the significances of Ketu.

Similarly, the formation of this type of Pitra Dosh due to malefic Ketu can indicate many other types of bad karmas related to the significances of Ketu which were done by the native or his ancestors in their past lives. Such karmas formed karmic debt related to Ketu due to which Ketu 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.
