There is always a dosh in our horoscope, out of all those we are about to tell you one important dosh. We should know about this dosh necessarily because it has a huge impact on our life. Only a few people realize it. Let's know what Pitra dosh is and what effect it has on our life. There are few Doshs in our horoscope within which we do not have any contribution but still, we've to face the results of that. Whenever we've to face problems because of ancestors within the Horoscope then it's called Pitra dosh.
It is stated in the Brahma Puran that, on the evening of Krishna Paksha in Ashvin month the Lord of death “Yamraj” grants freedom to souls so that on the occasion of Shradh they can accept and eat the food made by their children. The beings who don’t do the Shradh for his or her Pitras are the one who faces from the curse of “Pitra Dosh” as their Pitras got angry and returned to their world. Because of this the upcoming generation will face many problems. This is known as “Pitra Dosh”.
Pitra Dosh in horoscope arises, because of the soul of our departed forefathers not getting Nirvana. It mainly occurs when our dead forefathers and ancestors didn't get peace or proper salvation (Moksh) at the time of departing their souls. people who believe in the term rebirth can easily understand that this dosh is due to the belief that the souls of our forefathers aren't resting in peace and therefore the evil deeds or sins, which they or we might have committed in previous birth or past, knowingly or by mistake, could be a debt on us and desires to be cleared.
The souls of our ancestors or departed forefathers earnestly hunt for Moksha and wander on earth aimlessly, if their death was unnatural or occurred at their early age. Second reason is, if their strong desires aren't accomplished before death, they leave the world without peace of mind and a few of their wishes remain attached with the soul because of which they cannot get salvation. Third, if the cremation of the body of the person couldn't be performed because of any circumstance, the soul of the departed person is alleged to be without salvation. Fourth, evil deeds and sin also bind the person for not getting Moksha.
The signs of Pitra Dosh in your horoscope Pitra Dosh are created because of the placements of Sun, Moon, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu in our birth horoscope. If the Sun is afflicted by malefice Rahu or Ketu especially within the 9th House then Pitra Dosh is made in your horoscope If Moon is afflicted by Rahu, Ketu or Saturn then Pitra Dosh is created in your horoscope. Rahu in 9th House and particularly within the Ascendent also gives rise to Pitra Dosh. Some astrologers also believe when Rahu is positioned in the 2nd house with no auspicious planet, Pitra Dosh is created.
