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.
