Remedies to Mitigate 12 Major Types of Doshas Caused by Malefic Planetary Placements

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.
