Kalathra Dosha


Life is never a straight line and has its fair share of ups and downs. Vedic Astrology will tell us that our lives are entwined with the celestial bodies that have decided and, to a certain extent, charted our course of life. At the time of our birth, the planetary positions are considered in the birth chart’s twelve houses (horoscope). A dosha is said to occur when malefic planets are positioned in specific houses in the horoscope.

Combining these malefic planets in the natal chart will not allow the positive Yogas to come to fruition. Thus, a native will experience in his/her life the adverse impact of doshas.

Kalathra Dosha

What is a Kalathra Dosha?

Kalathra means a mate or spouse. The 7th House in a natal chart is called Kalathra Sthana or House of Spouse. The 7th House stands for spouse, harmony, partnership, happiness, marital harmony, and good bonding. Kalathra Dosha signifies afflictions in marriage and marital problems.

This dosha is called Kalathra Dosha in South India. In North India, it is known as Vivah Dosh.

How Cosmic Alignment Creates Kalathra Dosha

In Vedic Astrology, Kalathra Dosha occurs if malefic planets that include Mars, Saturn, Sun, Rahu, and Ketu are positioned in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, and 12th House from the Ascendant or Lagna. Kalathra in a male horoscope is Venus.

There may be a delay in marriage if there is no connection between the 2nd, 7th, and 11th houses. These houses are considered to determine the Kalathra Dosha. The presence of a malefic planet in the 7th House or the 7th House Lord can cause marital discord. Venus, in the 7th House, in combination with a malefic planet like Ketu, can cause the dosha.

A malefic planet like Ketu that causes problems when placed in the 7th House, from Lagna or the Moon, can cause Kalathra Dosha.

How Kalathra Dosha Can Impact an Individual

Kalathra Dosha can create trouble in marriage and aspects of marriage. It can cause many hurdles for a native impacted by this dosha.

  • The premature death of a spouse.
