Shrapit Dosh: It’s effects and remedies

Planetary alignments play a significant role in deciding the key characteristics of a person from birth to death. These planetary alignments and combinations are called Yogas. Yogas are believed to be very auspicious and are revered during many important stages of a person’s life like marriage, establishing a new business, giving birth to a child, and deciding on their education.

The philosophy of Hinduism believes that Yogas have the potential to positively influence a person’s life and enable them with the tools, skills, and resources required to achieve greatness.
Like Yogas, there are certain planetary alignments that have an opposite effect on a person’s life, and these alignments are called Doshas. Doshas happen when Saturn, Sun, Moon, Rahu, and Ketu occupy certain houses or are in a placement that does not allow the positive power of the Yogas to influence the person, thereby providing a constant and uninterrupted flow of negative energy.

The most prominent symptoms of being affected by doshas are:

  • The affected person will constantly be in debt and will not be able to resurface from that
  • The person will find it difficult to hold relationships
  • The native is easily drawn towards negativity and often finds himself/herself in trouble with regulatory authorities. In a few cases, there could be significant jail time involved.
  • Marital disputes, adultery, and infidelity are common
  • It becomes difficult for the person to conceive and in rare scenarios where the couple is able to give birth to a child, the offspring are either stillborn or are affected with complicated medical conditions.
While these are the most prominent ones, there are many other effects that one could face depending on the position of Saturn in Navamsa chart and Rahu in Navamsa chart.
Out of the many doshas, it is the Shrapit dosh that is dreaded the most, and people ensure that they do everything possible to nullify its effects to a certain degree.

Shrapit Yoga occurs when Rahu Saturn conjunction is in your horoscope readings. Shrapit Dosh is agnostic of the house and regardless of which house this conjunction occurs in, the effects could be devastating to the person. This occurs when the person has committed sinful deeds in his/her past life and has not repented for them in their past life and is forced to face the consequences of those actions in their current life.
