In the modern era, the younger generations believes more on science and technology. They are getting derailed from the traditional beliefs and rituals. Though there is nothing wrong in depending upon science and technology but then there happens to be some instances or incidents in life, for which, even, science or technology don’t have answer for them. One of that instance in astrology is known as Pitra Dosha.
As the name suggests, Pitra meaning ‘forefathers’ is the dosha that appears in the horoscope due to disrespect to parents in the previous life, irresponsibility in handling the duties and misuse of power and position in the previous life.
Pitra Dosha reflects in the birth horoscope,
When Sun/ Moon and Rahu are in the ninth house, the house of father, ancestors and destiny.
When Rahu is located in the prime places or at Trikon in the horoscope.
When Rahu is with Saturn or Jupiter.
When Rahu is in 2nd or Ashtam bhav.
This may lead to several unexpected and unavoidable problems in life. Also, the favourable planets in the horoscope are unable to provide any benefits due to the dominant malefic planets in Pitra Dosha.
What are the negative effects of Pitra Dosh?

Repeated failure in exams
