Dosha: Unfavorable Association of Planets
According to Vedic Astrology, “Dosha” is a term that refers to unfavorable conditions caused by the bad placement or association of planets in the birth chart. This affliction or Dosha, which has the potential to reduce all the positives of the favorable associations in the birth chart, is derived from the Sanskrit word “dush,” which means bad. Vedic seers and sages have laid out a set of rules in the ancient astrology texts to identify the planetary combinations which can cause Doshas (Afflictions). The strength of these planetary afflictions depends on the placement and association of the planets and these placements and association of the planets are determined by your Karmic actions from the past. Vedic texts also prescribe remedial rituals be performed to mitigate the adverse effects of the Doshas.
Dosha (Affliction): What to Expect
There are various types of Doshas detailed in Vedic astrology. When an affliction or Dosha is present in the birth chart, it indicates the sin caused by an individual in one of their births. Depending on the severity of the affliction, the person experiences the result in the present life. It depends on the type of sin caused, and accordingly, the person would experience difficulties in those particular areas of life. Some afflictions also indicate unfinished businesses from the previous life. These afflictions are a forewarning for an individual not to repeat the same action in this life and accrue bad karma, rather repent for the past acts.
These afflictions, depending on the severity, affect various areas of life, health, wealth, relationship, fortune, and happiness.
