Your birth chart is a sketch of the position of the planets and stars at the time of your birth. It is a drawing based on the date, time and place of your birth. In Vedic astrology, it is believed that these planetary placements impose good and bad influences on an individual’s life.
Astrologers believe the placement of planets in inappropriate houses affects the positive influences in your horoscope and this leads to Vedic Doshas. Astrologically, Mars is regarded to be the culprit behind the majority of the Doshas but there are other planets too which tend to negatively influence a horoscope. To understand the dosha in your birth chart, an expert needs to meticulously study the placement of the celestial bodies in your horoscope.
The most common Doshas
One of the most common doshas, the Manglik Dosha exists in nearly 50% of the horoscopes. It is when Mars is placed in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house that the Manglik Dosha occurs. However, the dosha gets nullified when Mars is present in an individual’s own sign. To minimize this dosha, it is suggested that one should chant the Hanuman Mantra “Om Shree Hanumate Namah” and visit a Hanuman temple daily.
*There are two primary misconceptions associated with this dosha–the death of the spouse’ and that ‘those born on a Tuesday are Manglik’. But as mentioned these are just misconceptions.
The Nadi Dosha occurs when two people with the same ‘Nadi’ get married. Nadi is one of the eight aspects that are considered while checking compatibility with your partner.
A person with Pitra Dosha is one who carries the weight of unscrupulous deeds of their ancestors. To deal with this dosha, one must offer rice in the form of roundels to fishes and crows every Saturday.
Kaal Sarpa Dosha
Based on the placement of Rahu and Ketu in the horoscope, the Kaal Sarpa Dosha is divided into 12 subcategories. Chanting ‘Om Namah Shivaay’ 108 times daily can slacken the impact of the dosha.
