Kendradhipati dosha

Vedic Astrology, the kendras are 1, 4, 7 and 10 houses in a natal

horoscope. These are supposed to be the houses of action and govern some of
the major aspects of life. Kendradhipati dosha is the blemish of ownership of
these kendras and works to negate the natural characteristic of the planet
owning the house. If the lord of such a house in a horoscope is a natural
malefic, then the harmful effects come down. Similarly the good effects of the
natural benefics comes down a notch.
The ascendant lord is not counted in this equation and continues to be a
benefic for the person. An ascendant is never a malefic. It will always define a
person and will never harm him/her. The ascendant lord, if if a natural
malefic, will do good to the house it gets located in.
Natural Benefics as lord of Kendras in a jamna kundali given inauspicious
results Jupiter and Venus get most blemish due to this dosha. This is a
problem because the malefics somehow do not lose all of their maleficence, but
a benefic losing its power is a total bummer for a janma kundali. It is like your
trusted adviser or guardian angel suddenly lost his mind and isnt of much
help anymore. Even worse, the adviser now starts working against you in its
dasha and antardasha. The problem with Jupiter and Venus is accentuated for
Gemini and Virgo, and Aries respectively.
The bad results are felt during the dasha/bhukti of the planet in question. The
effects that should be foretold are as per the natural characteristic of the planet
as well as the characteristics obtained through the lordship of the houses in a
horoscope. The following table provides more details:
Lagna Kendra Lords Effect/Comments
with Dosha
Aries (Mesha) Moon & If Moon is waxing, only then there is dosha.
Venus Venus is lord of both 2nd and 7th and hence is
not just tainted due to Kendradhipati dosha but
maraka as well. Venus position in any house in
the horoscope in its dasha/antardasha will
cause problems for the person. The overall
effects will be as per malefic characteristics, e.g.
reduction of grace, problems with spouse etc.
The maraka characteristics are accentuated due
to Kendradhipati dosha.
Taurus None Sun does not get this dosha, neither do Mars
and Saturn. Hence, there is no dosha for this
Gemini Jupiter Mercury itself due to lagna lordship in the
horoscope does not get the dosha. Jupiter is
tainted badly. Due to Jupiters malefic aspect,
the person becomes materialistic and loses the
ability to bring in pious aspects. There is loss of
status and overall honour.
Cancer Venus Venus is the lord of 4th house and hence gets
this dosha. As explained earlier, this results in
problem with spouse and mother both
emotional as well as love related aspects. The
person would have difficulty in being committed
to a relationship and will have propensity
towards extramarital love affairs, especially if
there is other malefic influence
Leo Venus Venus is lord of 10th house and hence suffers
from Kendradhipati dosha. For details, see
Virgo Jupiter See Gemini above. For Virgo, Jupiter is lord of
4th and 7th house.
Libra Moon, only if A waning moon, i.e. for a birth in krishna
waxing paksha, there is no dosha.
Scorpio Venus Venus is 7th Lord. See the details for Aries
where Venus is again both the karaka for
spouse as well as the lord of 7th in a janma
kundali indicating this karaka. The situation is
better for Scorpio persons because Venus is not
the single maraka.
Sagittarius Mercury, Only benefic Mercury gets this dosha that
unaspected manifests itself in problems relate to
by Saturn/ communication, skin diseases etc.
Rahu etc.
Capricorn Moon as it is A waning moon, i.e. for a birth in krishna
10th Lord paksha, there is no dosha.
Aquarius None Venus is lord of 4th house, but is
simultaneously lord of 9th in the horoscope.
Hence there is no Kendradhipati dosha and at
the same time, Venus becomes the best benefic
for Aquarians as it is capable of giving Rajyoga
without any other help.
Pisces Mercury, Only benefic Mercury gets this dosha that
unaspected manifests itself in problems relate to
by Saturn/ communication, skin diseases etc.
Rahu etc.

Kendradhipati dosha is cancelled if the lord is placed in a trine. The

planet gets back its own original characteristic.

They do well if placed in dushatanas as well and this shows that they are
treated like regular malefics in the chart. They do well too if they are debilitated
too. This is counterintuitive for a student of astrology and hence we must pay
attention as per the table above.
I must emphasize on one point though a lot of importance should not
be given to this factor. The beneficence comes down, but does not go away
altogether. Therefore, unless the other Karakas are afflicted as well, this dosha
by itself will not wreck havoc. As I said earlier in the article, this is like your
guardian angle going away. So unless there are other afflictions in the chart,
this by itself will not cause problems.
