When Sun or the lord of the ninth house is placed in the eighth house of a horoscope and it is afflicted by a malefic planet which is also placed in the eighth house, Pitra Dosh is formed in the eighth house of such horoscope. Pitra Dosh in the eighth 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.

Pitra Dosh in the eighth house can affect the lifespan of the natives in an adverse way and accordingly the natives under the malefic influence of this type of Pitra Dosh are likely to have lifespan; shorter or much shorter than the lifespan of an average person. The reduction in the lifespan of different natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh depends on the strength of this defect in their horoscopes, as well as on the overall tone of the horoscopes of these natives. In cases where such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength, the natives may die anytime after their age of 56, depending on their overall horoscopes.

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 die before his age of 48. In an extreme case of this type when such Pitra Dosh is strong and it is supported by other life reducing planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may die young or very young on account of various reasons depending on the overall tone of his horoscope.

Some natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may face serious injuries on account of accidents or in acts of sudden or planned violence against them. Here again, the quantum of such injuries depends on the strength of this defect as well as on the overall horoscopes of these natives. If such Pitra Dosh is medium in strength and it is supported by other malefic planets in a horoscope, the native under its impact may lose a limb in an accident or he may sustain a serious injury in such accident. 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 die at a young age, in an accident or in an act of violence.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed in a horoscope due to the presence of malefic Mars in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic exalted Sun, the native may die in an accident. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may die in an accident or in an act of violence; anytime after his age of 55. At the same time, if malefic retrograde debilitated Mercury is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Pisces, malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Taurus when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate.

The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may die anytime during his age of 42 and 50, in an accident or in an act of violence. If malefic retrograde Saturn is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Scorpio along with malefic Rahu; and malefic debilitated Moon also joins this combination in the third house, the native may suffer more. The combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may kill this native in an accident or in an act of violence, anytime after his age of 27.

Some other natives under the impact of such Pitra Dosh may suffer from various types of health problems and diseases, where the quantum of such problems depends on the overall horoscopes of these natives. If such Pitra Dosh is strong in a horoscope, it can afflict the native with a serious disease which may trouble him till the end of his life and which may significantly reduce his lifespan. 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 in a horoscope, the native under its impact may get afflicted with a fatal disease which may kill him at a young or very young age.

The formation of Pitra Dosh in the eighth house can also cause problems in the marriage of the native due to which some natives under its impact may witness many types of problems before and after their marriages, as indicated by their overall horoscope. Such Pitra Dosh can delay the marriages of some natives due to which these native may not get married till late or very late, depending on their overall horoscopes. 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 in a horoscope, the native may not get married till his age of 41 or he may not get married at all.

Considering an example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic exalted Mercury in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Virgo along with Sun, the native may witness delay in his marriage. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh may not get married till his age of 35 as his marriage may get delayed due to various reasons depending on the rest of his horoscope. At the same time, if malefic Saturn is placed in the seventh house of this horoscope in the sign of Leo, malefic Rahu is placed in the third house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries and malefic Ketu is placed in the ninth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra when all other malefic planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the equation may become much more negative.

As a result, the native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 41 and he may also have to suffer from a broken engagement. If in the same horoscope, debilitated Venus is placed in the eighth house in the sign of Virgo along with malefic exalted Mercury and Sun when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses, the problem may intensify. This is due to the fact that the affliction of malefic exalted Mercury to Sun and debilitated Venus may form double Pitra Dosh in this horoscope, as Venus is the lord of the ninth house in this example. As a result, the native troubled by such double Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may not get married till his age of 48 or he may not get married at all.

Some other natives under the malefic impact of such Pitra Dosh may not witness much delay in their marriages but they may face problems after their marriages. The type of problems as well as the quantum of problems experienced by different natives of this type depends on the strength of such Pitra Dosh, as well as on the overall 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 of a specific type in a horoscope, the native may have to face more than one broken marriage on account of serious problems in such marriages.

For example, if Pitra Dosh is formed due to the presence of malefic Mars in the eighth house of a horoscope in the sign of Gemini along with Moon, malefic Rahu is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries and malefic Ketu is placed in the twelfth house of this horoscope in the sign of Libra, the native may face this problem. The native troubled by such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may face serious differences of opinion with his wife and such differences may eventually break his marriage. At the same time, if malefic Venus is placed in the sixth house of this horoscope in the sign of Aries along with malefic Rahu when all other planets are placed in the already mentioned houses of this horoscope, the problem may aggravate. The native under the combined effect of such Pitra Dosh and other malefic planets may witness more than one broken marriage due to serious problems in such marriages, unless there is a strong marriage saving planet in his horoscope.

Apart from this, Pitra Dosh formed in the eighth 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.
