The word Grahan means “eclipse”. When an individual is born during a Solar or Lunar eclipse, it is said that the person has Grahan dosh. The formation of this dosh is due to the presence of the shadow planets,Rahu and Ketu. In this dosh, Rahu and Ketu are in close conjunction of the Sun or Moon. But just as no adverse impact is permanent, this dish will also leave your life after a certain period of time. So try not to be fearful during this period.
The four possible combinations of the Grahan Dosh are:
>Purna Surya Grahan Dosh - When Sun and Rahu are in the same house
> Partial Surya Grahan Dosh - When Sun and Ketu are in the same house
>Purna Chandra Grahan Dosh - When Moon and Rahu are in the same house
> Partial Chandra Grahan Dosh - When Moon and Ketu are in the same house
Every zodiac sign reacts differently to the Grahan dosh. The position of other planets at the time of your birth is very significant. Saturn can increase the adversities that the Grahan dosh will impose on your life, while a favourable planet can curb the harshness of the dosh. Apart from this, you should also look out for the impact of Mahadasha and the following Antardasha. Everything works together to lay the results of the dosh in your life.
