Pitra Dosh is actually a karmic debt of the ancestors. It is reflected in the Kundli in a form of malefic planetary combinations and is to be paid by the person having Pitra dosha in his Kundli. The condition in this defect is that Sun should be in conjunction with Rahu and it should be aspected by Saturn.
Presence of Pitra Dosha in one’s horoscope may bring about some inevitable and unexpected hardships in the native’s life. It causes severe ups and downs in one’s lifespan. The native tends to suffer from a lack of mental decisiveness and money.
In Vedic astrology, it is called the father’s factor, so when Rahu and Saturn affect the Sun, ‘Pitra Dosh’ is formed. In astrology, after Kalsarp Yoga, if any defect has become the reason for research then it is ‘Pitra Dosh’, in fact, like Kalsarp Dosh, it is such a defect in which the person has to suffer more or less the same results. Although the influence of Rahu is more in Kalsarp Yoga, but in this dosha, along with Rahu, the dosha of Saturn is also equally effective. Sun is the factor of the soul and in Vedic astrology it is called the factor of the father, so when Rahu and Saturn affect the Sun, then ‘Pitra Dosh’ is formed. The condition in this defect is that Sun should be in conjunction with Rahu and it should be aspected by Saturn. On the other hand, if Saturn is with the Sun or Rahu is aspecting it, then scholars have called it ‘Pitra Dosh’.
In fact, Rahu weakens the Moon and the same air element Saturn further instigates that conjunction due to which the person yearns for honor and respect throughout his life and does not find peace anywhere. In our culture, ancestors have been given an important place and we perform Shraddha for them not only while alive but even after death.
