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.
