Kalathra Dosha gives a very powerful and bad effect on one’s horoscope. In Vedic Astrology, Kalathra Dosha exists because of the evil planet or “paap graha”. Mars, Sun, Rahu, Saturn and Ketu are evil planets. If these evil planets are located in houses 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th,8th and 12th of their ascendant or their lagan, or their lunar lagan, then they cause this dosha.

What is Kalathra Dosham?

The seventh house in the horoscope is the wife’s house and is also called “kalathra sthana” or house. In simple terms too, Kalathra means spouse. The kalathra in a male horoscope is Venus, and the meaning of kalathra in a woman is Jupiter. The seventh house of the horoscope means bed, wife, harmony, association, happiness, marital happiness and good relations with the spouse. Kalathra Dosha means an affected marriage house and problems of married life and happiness.

Even after marriage, they do not understand well and lead a separate life. Nor do they have the marital happiness that finally puts an end to divorce. In some cases, the spouse suffers from health problems and even death can occur in severe cases.

No connection between the second, the seventh and the eleventh house can usually lead to a late marriage. The evil planet or the evil affliction in the seventh house or in the seventh lord can create problems in married life. The variety of planets touched by the seventh house or the seventh lord can lead to divorce and the new marriage.

Most of them usually take a lot of time and care to solve marital problems. But the real villain in the episode Marriage is this Kalathra Dosha. If the horoscope of a boy or a girl indicates a form of Kalathra Dosha, this problem must be solved before the marriage.

How Kalathra Dosha Occurs?

To check Kalathra dosha in a table, we have to study 2nd, 7th and 11th houses. The 7th house was given the highest importance in the evaluation of this dosha because the 7th house is the spouse house and married life.

  • Combination of Venus and Mars, especially in the seventh house. Such a native will attract the affection of members of the opposite sex. However, if the fourth house, which is the house of chastity and its lord, is not affected by evil planets like the Sun and has a beneficial aspect of Jupiter, this tendency will not manifest itself.
  • Placement of Rahu
  • Lord of Seventh house is combust.
  • Rahu and Sun are in the 7th house.
  • Debilitation of 7th lord
  • 7th Lord in 6th, 8th and 12th house
  • Association of 7th lord with lords of trik bhav (6th, 8th and 12th houses)
  • Other planet debilitated in 7th house
  • Presence of Venus in 7th house

How Kalathra Dosha Remedies:

  1. The person who has identified with the Kalathira Dosham must be performed a marriage ceremony with Banana Stone.
  2. The Best day for conducting this Pariharam is either on Friday or Sunday.
  3. After completing this rituals, you will be guided to worship the Lord Shiva and Parvathi.

  • I’m 23 , I have raghu and sevvai in 7 th house and I have kalathara dhosam. I love a boy both of horoscope doesn’t match. I have instructed that if I married to that boy he might have health issues or something might bad happen to him. I need to marry is there any remedy or parikaram that I can perform

    • Dear Sandhiya
      The below said matters are in general but did you matched both of your horoscopes i mean compatibility check.
      If not please chect that and then proceed. You can send your details to us also and we let you know.
      The conjunction of Rahu and Mars in 7th house (Kalathra Sthanam) most probably never brings happiness in the love life/marriage life of a person as Rahu being egotistical nature and Mars being red & brutal nature draws the natives to suffer badly or unhappy married life.
      Just because of the EGO NATURE and HARSH AND UNTHINKABLE NATURE of a person either spouse could possible lead to end of married life or ill-treatment suffering in married life etc.
      Regardless the strength of Rahu in Kalathra sthana it is mostly be a tought time in ones married life.
      Om Namah Shivaya

  • My friend has rahu in 2nd house & mars & saturn in 7th house… he got divorce in his marriage… what pariharam we can do .. will he gey married & settle again… mesha raasi mesha lagnam Ashwini padam 2.

    • Dear Kannan
      Having the planets posited as you said above is not auspicious actually but need to check his horoscope.
      Its normally represents Kuja dosham that affects him till the age of 30. There after reduces.
      Marriage again for him depends on his luck and positions of planets in his horoscope.
      Just tell him to regularly worship Lord Ganesh, Subrahmanya and Hanuman to bless. If his prayers reaches the lords then he may get marry.
      Om Namah Shivaya

    • Hi. My friends daughter married a person of her wish by way of eloping. Its been 3 months now. She has rahu in her 7th house. They are not understanding when we say about this dosham and not interested in pariharam thinking that we might separate them. Moreover the marriage has happened. What can we do now??

      • Dear Shankari
        If there is no issues between the couples then why do you worry about that particular positing of rahu. Checkout whether they are happy or not.
        Remedy that you can do is – Perform rahu kethu pooja on a Sashti or Panchami or Amavasya thithi for her well being is enough. Also you can worship the Gods on her behalf of her well being.
        Visit the nearby naaga devatha temple or the Durga maa temple worship regularly
        Om Namah Shivaya
