Today let us discuss about the term Pitra Dosh. Almost all astrologers say that Pitra dosh is very dangerous and that it provides one with lots of troubles in one’s family life and one’s career. People afflicted with Pitra Dosh tends to change ones job quite often and do not get settled in one’s life and there may be problems with one’s own father. However, most astrologers will add that Pitra Dosh causes delay in marriage, in child birth & is the cause for miscarriages etc. But personally, my point is that it becomes difficult for the person to settle in one’s career and there are ups and downs in one’s relation with father.
To me it’s not about curse of ancestors, but this is all about ancestor’s deeds and what we may do to release the debt. There is a karmic debt somewhere which leads to this type of ‘Dosha’. This happens when Sun and Rahu comes together in 9th or 10th house. Here let me point out that these dosha is formed when the degree difference between Sun and Rahu is below 10 degrees. Also one need to find the degree of the planet Rahu in terms of its retrograde motion and the planet Sun based on which one can analysis Pitri Dosh. Generally, these makes a person gets stability in life in later part of their innings especially after 35 years.
Also it is said that if the 9th Lord is afflicted, then also pitri dosh is formed in a horoscope. So, pitri dosh is not about curse of the ancestors, it’s all about debt of the ancestors and their work which you need to perform in one’s life. It is said that your ancestors may have performed some deeds which may have created such troubles and pains for others. That bad karma passes on to its next generations and the future generations needs to repay back the debt. Now the question will obviously arise with the fact that when an individual has not done anything bad in his life, why has one to suffer? It is said that there are chances that the same person who did this misdeed is again born in the same family to suffer. Well that’s what this hypothetical concept goes.
However, from the point of vedic astrology, you need to find as to which lord is afflicting the Ninth house and remedies done in forms of charity willfully generally helps to release the karmic debt.
The above write up is a general prediction and these are my personal views which may not match with astrologers. This is based on my experience of reading this subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for all these years.
