Kendradhipati Dosha

Kendradhipati dosha is another confusing dosha in astrology. As its name mentions, it is a negative impact on a person’s life due to the influence of the lord of Kendras. The Kendra houses 1, 4, 7, and 10 are having the lordship of mild planets or precisely speaking benefic planets, and then it gives a Kendradhipati Dosha.

Now, there is another technical side added to fix this dosha.

Is it applicable for all those who have benefics as their lord of Kendras?

No. Only Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ascendant is considered to have this dosha and again there are filters to this condition.

For Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces ascendants, Mercury and Jupiter are the lords of Kendras. For Gemini Mercury is not a Kendradhipati dosha planet, because Mercury rules not only Kendra but also the 1st house, which is a Trikon house too. This is the same condition with Virgo ascendant.

On Pisces Ascendant

For Sagittarius and Pisces ascendant, Jupiter is not a Kendradhipati dosha planet, because Jupiter rules not only the Kendra house but also the Trikon house as well.

So for Gemini and Virgo, Jupiter can create troubles and for Sagittarius and Pisces, Mercury can create troubles.

Now let’s see what are the implications of Kendradhipati dosha.

Kendra houses are the doors of treasures in our life.

1st house:  person, beauty, aspirations, health, vitality, longevity, personality, prosperity, perspective, soul’s purpose, initiations, ambitions, happiness, and willpower.

4th house: security, nourishment, mother, happiness, upbringing relatives, basic education, comforts, psyche, mental peace, spiritual life confidence, luxuries, country of birth, and real estate deals.

7th house: spouse, marriage, legal relations, business partners, sex, fertility, passion, foreign travels, and open enemies.

10th house: honour, career, status, Karma, power, fame, public esteem, status, position, honour,   authority, rulers, government, employer and self-esteem.

When we analyze these 4 houses, we can see that they are the main thing which constitutes a human life or they are the basis of human life. We have to fight to attain the features of this in life and these fights should be on a regular basis because there are so many contestants out there.  So you need a fighter to guard these matters. You need protection and at the same time, you need to conquer more.

Jupiter and Mercury, basically known as mild planets,  obviously lack that fighting spirit. So there can be some situations in your life where you have to struggle to build confidence, hard-heartedness, willpower to gather together the matters indicated in these 4 houses.

Does it means that having a malefic planet or those who do not have this Kendradhipati dosha, do well in their life? Not at all.

Malefic planets in the Kendra houses also seem to be problematic. Kendradhipati dosha is just a reminder that you have to be extra cautious about your peace of mind. The 4 houses are dealing with those matters which can directly block your decision-making power and peace of mind. So you need to guard them carefully.
