Unfavorable Planetary Placement Affecting Relationships
Vedic Remedies to Mitigate Delayed and Troubled Marriages
What is Kalathra Dosha?
Kalathra Dosha is an affliction that affects marriage and brings troubles to marriage. In Vedic astrology, the 7th house represents relationships; in Sanskrit, it is called Kalathra Sthana, the house of Spouse. The 7th house signifies spouse, harmony, partnership, happiness, marital harmony, and good bonding. This Kalathra Dosha is also called Vivah Dosha- the affliction affecting marriages.
How Cosmic Alignment Creates Kalathra Dosha
In Vedic astrology, the term Kalathra means spouse. The planet representing spouse is different in male and female horoscopes. Venus represents spouse in a male’s horoscope, and Mars represents the same in a female’s horoscope.
The placement of malefic planets Mars, Saturn, Sun, Rahu, and Ketu in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th, or 12th house from the Ascendant (Lagna) signifies Kalathra Dosha.
The combination of Venus and the malefic planet Ketu in the 7th house can also cause this Dosha, or if Ketu alone is present in the 7th house from the Ascendant or the Moon can also result in Kalathra Dosha.
The 2nd, 7th, and 11th houses are vital as they help determine the Kalathra Dosha. If a malefic planet is in the 7th house or if there is an association of a malefic planet with the 7th house ruler, it could lead to marital discord. Marriages might be delayed if there is no connection between the 2nd, 7th, and 11th houses.

AstroVed’s Dosha Remedial Programs
Life is never a straight line and has its fair share of ups and downs. Vedic Astrology will tell us that our lives are intertwined with the celestial bodies that have charted our life course. At the time of our birth, the planetary positions in the twelve zodiac houses are considered to draft a birth chart (horoscope). A Dosha occurs when malefic planets are positioned in specific houses in the horoscope. The combination of these malefic planets in the birth chart will not allow the positive Yogas to come to fruition. Thus, a native will experience in their life the adverse impact of Doshas.
