Vish Dosha

Paap Kartari Dosha


When a retrograde malefic planet occupies the second house and another malefic occupies the 12th house from a benefic planet, it forms a Paap Kartari Dosha.  This means that the planet which has malefic planets on either side, with a retrograde malefic in the house just ahead where it is positioned, falls in Paap Kartari Dosha. This is called the scissor effect. So the sins of the two malefic planets cut the happiness that the benefic planet could give.
