Pitra Dosh Formed by Sun

Before starting the main topic for this article, let’s refresh some things about Pitra Dosh first, so that this article is understood in a better way. If in a horoscope, the Sun, the ninth house or the lord of the ninth house is afflicted by one or more than one malefic planets, Pitra Dosh is formed in the horoscope. Each one of the nine planets among Navagraha can form Pitra Dosh and this defect can trouble the native in many spheres of his life; depending on the type of Pitra Dosh, its strength, its field of impact, grace saving factors or aggravating factors in the horoscope, the overall theme of the horoscope and on the timing of impact of this defect. All these topics have been discussed, in the main article for Pitra Dosh. Moving on, Pitra Dosh is an inheritance of karmic debt from the ancestors. It means the ancestors of the native suffering from this defect had done specific type of bad karmas which formed karmic debt on them and a part of this debt has been forwarded to the native through inheritance. For details on this topic, kindly check the main article for Pitra Dosh. We will now move on to the main topic for this article.

Sun in the king among planets and it signifies the self, father, forefathers, the ability to produce children, confidence, leadership, certain affairs related to the house of government, immunity, creativity and many other things, people and personality traits. If Sun is afflicted by a malefic planet in a horoscope, Pitra Dosh is formed in such horoscope. However in some cases, Sun itself can be malefic, it can afflict the ninth house or the lord of the ninth house and form Pitra Dosh. When that happens, the type of defect formed in the horoscope is called Pitra Dosh formed by Sun. This defect can trouble the native in various possible ways; depending on its strength and on the overall horoscope of the native.

The most common types of problems caused by Pitra Dosh formed by Sun are related to the father. It means that due to such Pitra Dosh, native’s father may face health problems, he may witness professional as well as financial problems, he may be separated from the native on account of various reasons and in extreme cases; the native may lose his father to death; due to the malefic impact of this type of Pitra Dosh. The type of problems caused by Pitra Dosh formed by Sun, the quantum of these problems and the timing of impact of these problems depends on the overall horoscope of the native. Let’s take an example to understand this concept in a better way.

Suppose, Pisces is the ascendant rising in a horoscope, malefic Sun is placed in ninth house in Scorpio along with benefic Mercury, forming Pitra Dosh; benefic Jupiter is placed in sixth house in Leo along with malefic Rahu, thereby forming Guru Chandal Yoga, malefic Ketu is placed in twelfth house in Aquarius and the rest of the horoscope varies. According to the basic setup of this horoscope, Pitra Dosh may cause differences of opinion between the native and his father and these differences may be so strong that the two of them may not have a healthy father son relationship, throughout their lives. Apart from this, such Pitra Dosh may separate the native from his father on account of divorce between his parents where the custody of the native may be given to his mother. Moving on, the native may have to face bad name, financial losses, broken marriage and many other types of problems depending on the rest of his horoscope. In extreme cases of this type when such Pitra Dosh is supported by other malefic planets or yogas; the native may lose his father to death at an early age.

Considering a possibility, if benefic Mars is placed in second house of this horoscope in Aries and malefic Venus is placed in tenth house in Sagittarius; the native may have serious differences of opinion with his father. Due to the combined effect of Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets in the horoscope; the native as well as his father may both be assertive, aggressive, impulsive and dominating in nature. As a result, they may not do well with each other and instead, both of them may continuously try to dominate each other. This type of horoscope setup suggests that some visible or invisible territories are to be won between the native and his father, which even they may not know on conscious level; and they may keep fighting with each other in order to dominate or win each other. However, none of them may be able to do so and this equation may result in a permanently spoiled relationship between the two of them; with none of them being able to stand the other, almost through their lives; unless there is some grace saving factor in the horoscope.

The horoscope with this type of Pitra Dosh and other planets indicates a karmic settlement of past life between the native and his father. It means that the two of them might have been enemies in past life, in one way or another and they might have tried to win each other; without any resolution during that life. The equation is carried forward and the battle starts once again in this life too. For instance, if benefic Moon is placed in second house of this horoscope in Aries along with benefic Mars, forming Chandra Mangal Yog; this battle between the native and his father may be due to his mother though none of them may know it on conscious level. During the past life, the native’s mother might have been his elder sister and his father might have been the one who married her. The married life of his sister might not have been good since her husband might have kept troubling her on account of his dominating nature. The native might have loved his sister a lot; he might have tried to fix the problems and unable to fix them; he might have developed enmity with her husband. This enmity might have become a mutual thing over a period of time as the native might have tried to make his sister happy by overpowering her husband or by continuously convincing her to leave him. Her husband might have retaliated and direct enmity between the two of them might have started; where the sister might neither have been willing to leave the husband, nor the brother.

This equation comes to this life and the same battle starts on a different battlefield. The sister becomes native’s mother and her husband becomes his father. This is because the native might have loved and valued his sister like his mother and the sister might have loved him like a son, during the past life. At the same time, she may have wanted to live with her husband; despite his dominating and troublesome nature. As a result, the native gets his sister as his mother in this life and since his mother wanted the same husband; his brother in law from the past life becomes his father. Even in this life; the primary cause of conflict between the native and his father or the primary reward of this battle is native’s mother. Right from his birth; the native may have seen his father dominating and supressing his mother; he may have developed subconscious hatred against his father’s such acts, he may have tried to convince, stop or confront his father against such acts; depending on his age and circumstances; but nothing may have worked. Hence two enemies are bound together in this life; with a common thread, that is native’s mother.

Apart from this, the native may face problems related to his father in many different ways due to such Pitra Dosh, if some planetary arrangements are changed in his horoscope. For example, if malefic Sun forms Pitra Dosh in ninth house of a horoscope in Scorpio, a malefic combination of Mars and Rahu is placed in twelfth house in Aquarius, malefic Ketu is placed in sixth house in Leo and malefic Venus is placed in tenth house in Sagittarius, the father of the native may be a criminal. Due to the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh, the native may have to stay away from his father for many years as his father may be imprisoned for some crime he may have committed, he may run away from law and not live with the native and his mother or he may get killed by law enforcing agencies or by his enemies; depending on the native’s overall horoscope, as well as on his father’s horoscope.

Considering another example, suppose a malefic combination of Sun, debilitated Mars and malefic Saturn is placed in fifth house of a horoscope in Cancer, forming double Pitra Dosh, by Sun as well as by Saturn, malefic Rahu is placed in ninth house in Scorpio forming yet another Pitra Dosh, malefic Ketu is placed in third house in Taurus and the rest of the horoscope varies. In this case, the malefic impact of Pitra Dosh formed by three planets may not mean or cause direct harm to his father’s life; but it indicates that the father of this native may suffer from psychological disorders. Hence the father of this native may have to face various types of psychological problems throughout his life, after the birth of this native; depending on native’s horoscope as well as on his father’s horoscope. In extreme cases when there are no grace saving factors against Pitra Dosh in the horoscope of this native as well as in his father’s horoscope; his father may be admitted to a mental asylum and he may have to stay there for many years or for his entire life. Likewise, Pitra Dosh formed by Sun can trouble the father of this native or the equation of this native with his father, in many other ways; depending on the overall horoscope.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed by Sun can cause problems related to profession, marriage, health, finances, lifespan and almost any other type of problem; depending on the house of placement of such Pitra Dosh and depending on the planet it afflicts. For example, if Sun forms Pitra Dosh in first house by afflicting the lord of the ninth house; the native may face problems related to profession, health and father. If Pitra Dosh is formed by malefic Sun in second house by afflicting ninth house lord, say Venus, the native may primarily face problems related to marriage, profession and finances; since Venus is being afflicted and the formation of Pitra Dosh happens in second house. Similarly, if Pitra Dosh is formed in seventh house due to affliction of Sun to ninth house lord, say Mars, the primary target of such Pitra Dosh is marriage. The formation of Pitra Dosh in eighth house due to the presence of a malefic combination of Sun and Mercury may reduce the lifespan of the native; and the native may die young. Similarly; Pitra Dosh formed in other houses of the horoscope can cause different types of damages; depending on the house of placement and on the planet which has been afflicted as Lord of the ninth house.

Let’s now take an example related to the marriage of a native and see what Pitra Dosh can do in this domain. Suppose, malefic Sun is placed in seventh house of a horoscope in Virgo along with benefic Mars, forming Pitra Dosh. This type of Pitra Dosh can cause various types of problems related to the marriage of this native; depending on the rest of his horoscope. For example, if a malefic combination of Venus and retrograde Mercury is placed in sixth house of this horoscope in Leo; such Pitra Dosh may cause more than one broken marriage of the native, if there are no grace saving factors in his horoscope. Looking at such grace saving factors; if benefic Moon is placed in seventh house of this horoscope in Virgo along with malefic Sun and benefic Mars, forming Chandra Mangal Yog; and benefic Jupiter is placed in ninth house of this horoscope in Scorpio; the results may change. The native may either get settled in his first marriage after troublesome experiences for two to three years in the beginning or he may settle in his second marriage; depending on his wife’s horoscope. It should be noted that Mars will not form Manglik Dosh in this case since Mars is benefic.

Considering another variation, if Pitra Dosh is formed by a combination of malefic Sun and benefic Mars in seventh house in Virgo; and a malefic combination of Venus and Mercury is placed in eighth house in Libra; the native may not get married till late in his life; unless there are some grace saving factors in his horoscope. At the same time; if malefic exalted Saturn is placed in the eighth house of this horoscope in Libra along with Venus and Mercury; the native may not get married throughout his life; unless there are strong grace saving factors in his horoscope. For instance, if benefic Jupiter is placed in ninth house of this horoscope in Scorpio and a benefic combination of Moon and Rahu is placed in tenth house in Sagittarius, forming Shakti Yog; the malefic impact of Pitra Dosh may reduce. Though the combination of Pitra Dosh and other malefic influences can still delay the marriage of this native till late in his life; he may finally get married due to the grace saving factors in his horoscope. This native is likely to get married between 41 and 45 years of his life. It should be noted that the combination of Moon and Rahu in the tenth house will not form Grahan Yog and instead it will form Shakti Yog since both Rahu and Moon are benefic. This is a strong horoscope for profession and the native may become a high rank officer with the government or he may achieve power and authority through politics; depending on the running times as well as on the finer factors of his horoscope.

Let’s take another example related to a different sphere of life, say the lifespan of the native and let’s see what problems can be caused there by Pitra Dosh of this type. Suppose, malefic exalted Sun is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope in Aries along with benefic Venus and benefic retrograde Mercury; forming Pitra Dosh since Venus is the lord of ninth house in this case. This type of Pitra Dosh can threaten the life as well as health of the native in a serious way and the native may die young due to a disease or in an accident at a young age; unless there are grace saving factors in his horoscope. For instance, if a benefic combination of Jupiter and Rahu is placed in first house of this horoscope in Virgo; the impact of such Pitra Dosh may reduce a lot and the native may die after his age of 55 years. If at the same time; benefic Moon is placed in fifth house of this horoscope in Capricorn; the impact of Pitra Dosh may be reduced even more. In this case, the native may live up to the age of 62 years or even more. This native is likely to witness a sudden and quick death like the one coming from an accident or from a brain stroke.

On the other hand, if there are no grace saving factors in the horoscope and instead; there are aggravating factors in the horoscope; such Pitra Dosh can kill the native at a young or very young age. For instance, if a malefic combination of Sun, retrograde Mercury and Venus forms Pitra Dosh in the eighth house of a horoscope in Aries, malefic Mars is placed in the third house in Scorpio and malefic Saturn is placed in twelfth house in Leo; the native may die before his age of 40 or even before his age of 30; depending on the rest of his horoscope. If malefic Rahu is placed in third house of this horoscope in Scorpio along with Mars; forming Angarak Yog; malefic Ketu is placed in ninth house in Taurus forming yet another Pitra Dosh and there are no grace saving factors in the horoscope; the native may die any time after his birth, even shortly after his birth; depending on the rest of the horoscope as well as on the running times. For instance, if a benefic combination of Jupiter and Moon forms Gaj Kesari Yoga in the first house of this horoscope in Virgo; the native may live up to the age of 27 years, 38 years or 42 years; depending on the running times and on the finer factors; despite the presence of double Pitra Dosh in his horoscope. However, if a malefic combination of Jupiter and Moon is placed in sixth house of this horoscope in Aquarius; thereby aggravating the Pitra Dosh even more; the native may die any time after his birth; depending on the running times and on the finer factors of the horoscope. The term finer factors here means the placement of planets in different signs in Navamsha chart.

Similarly, Pitra Dosh formed by Sun can cause a number of other types of problems for the native; depending on the placement of such Pitra Dosh. These malefic effects may further aggravate or reduce, depending on the overall horoscope of the native. The malefic effects of Pitra Dosh formed by Sun can be reduced with the help of guided astrological remedies like Poojas, gemstones, yantras and donations.
