Eka Nakshatra Dosha


Our life and identity are reflected by the date, time, and place of our birth. Most importantly, the celestial bodies’ position or planets in the birth or natal chart (horoscope) will determine many characteristics and aspects of our life. Planets are carriers of cosmic energies and are also reflective of our past life Karma. They influence and hugely impact our current lives.

Derived from Sanskrit, dosha denotes physical disorders. However, in Vedic Astrology, a dosha is defined as a bad condition in a native’s birth chart. It occurs when malefic planets occupy a specific position in the twelve houses of a native’s birth chart, to the extent that they can even overcome the good and positive aspects that could come to fruition in a horoscope. They can adversely impact a native’s life.

Eka Nakshatra Dosha

What is Eka Nakshatra Dosha?

Eka Nakshatra Dosha occurs when two family members are born in the same Nakshatra, next to each other in succession, with no other birth happening in the family in between. The dosha occurs, harming the younger born.

How Cosmic Alignment Creates Eka Nakshatra Dosha

Two members of a family are born next to each other, in the same Nakshatra. This adversely impacts the younger born. If both members have the same Nakshatra Pada (every Nakshatra has 4 Pada of 3 degrees and 20 minutes each), the younger born may suffer ill-health. If both share only the same birth Nakshatra with different Pada, then the younger born will suffer from loss of wealth and unhappiness.

The timing of the suffering starts when the two natives are physically away from each other. Distance causes problems for the younger born. But the suffering also comes when both members live together but become emotionally and mentally distanced from each other. The younger member starts suffering. A son born in the father’s Nakshatra can cause Eka Nakshatra Dosha.

How Eka Nakshatra Dosha Can Impact an Individual

Eka Nakshatra Dosha can cause suffering if two members of a family are born in the same Nakshatra. The younger member of the family is bound to face adverse effects because of the dosha.

  • The younger member will start suffering when distanced from the older member.
  • The suffering can come from physical and mental, or emotional distancing also.
  • Ill health and other ailments can plague the afflicted member.
  • Younger members will face financial problems and incur losses.
  • Ancestral curse.
  • Parents unhappy with offspring.
  • Conflict can arise between family members.

Home Remedies for Eka Nakshatra Dosha

  • Chant the mantras of the particular Nakshatra in which the two family members are born. So, if born in the Nakshatra of Jupiter, for instance, chant ‘Om Sri Gurave Namaha’. If born in Mars Nakshatra, then chant ‘Om Sri Kujhaaya Namaha’ 108 times a day and especially on the day of the planet (e.g., Jupiter is on Thursday and Mars is on Tuesday, etc.)
  • Also, there is a special Puja done at some temples where the parents donate the child to God. This makes one sibling spiritually submitted to God and hence reduces or removes the dosha affecting the family members, e.g., the younger sibling.
