This article refers to analysis of curse and providing remedies for people suffering from the same.
Curse refers to prayer or invocation for harm or injury upon one. They are the not appearing by themselves but always provoked by human being, Rsi or Deva with high atmabala. This is always involving emotions (anger-Mars; sorrow-Shani; shock-Rahu) therefore graha drsti is analysed among types of drstis. Curse is burden on the Atma be it jivatma or Paramatma (like Sri Rama). The sin indicated by the Shani is the source of curse. Whichever Lagna is rising papa is always indicated by the bhavas lorded by Shani. When they are additional doshas like Sankranti or Tithi dosha (like amavasya when Tara was raped by Chandra where Kali Mata lays curse on this tithi and woman born here suffer rape and loss of purity) then the remedy for curse will also cure those aspects afflicted by panchanga-dosha.
Curse is defined by planet or sign being influenced by at least two malefics by yuti or graha dristi.Sanjayji advises to add ashtangata and papakartari. It is very important part of chart reading and is analysed after looking at panchanga and yogas like Kalamrta, Kalasarpa or Grahamalika Yoga. We always try to remedy the yoga which gives the worst experience. More malefics aspecting planet makes worst emotion associated. If the curse is present in third, sixth, ninth or eleventh from Arudhapada the native by own action can increase the effect of curse and the advise is to stay away from himsa/vedha and any other form of doing harm to others. For example if curse is in eleventh house then native is lurred by good opportunity and after feeding that direction with energy the curse starts. Jupiter afflicted cause the curse of sage, Brahmin, priests or scholar, Mercury indicates one's friends, relatives or uncle; Shukra-saapa (Venus) shows the spouse as the author and Chandra/Surya shows parents or motherly/fatherly figures. Brhat Parasara Hora Śastra also provides information about the curse of serpents (Rahu).
MORE THAN ONE CURSE IN THE CHART
First we should pay attention to curses in dusthana because it shows bad intention in past life and association with tamas guna (Shani being karaka bhava for dusthana) and when benefic is strong then it shows full awarness (awakening state/Jagraadi in avastha scheme). The strength of curse depends also on state of malefics; if the aspecting malefic is vakri remedies will not work and native must experience whole periods (moola dasa) in challenges similar to those provoked by the native in the past life(s). Shadbala also indicates the intensity of curse and if papa-kartari is present on the bhava of the curse then its very serious one. On the other side Jupiter aspects the dosha/curse then the remedy will be available and potent. Involvment of Atmakaraka and eigth house ins neccessary as that confirms nija dosha (karmik baggage) from the past life (8th house). The final confirmation comes from Shastyamsa. Ishta Devata yuti the curse will force one to remember the God as the lesson of the course. If still in doubt which one of the curse will be most affecting we should open Shastyaamsa and judge most afflicted planets using all standart rules. There will be only one active curse in the chart, so the proper analysis of the horoscpe is important to arrive at proper remedy. Arudhas in the signs of the Moola Dasa graha will show the source of suffering during the period. Shatrupada (a6) involved threatens with legal cases. The last period (1/3) of the malefic graha will be the worst and opposite for the benefic. Order is as follows: First we should pay attention to dusthana curses, then for most afflicted one's and then for the most benefic being cursed. Fifth lord is always the most benefic planet in the chart. Sometimes the curse can come from current life and that will be visible in the praśna as advised by Hari Hara in Praśna Marga . If the ninth lord is involved the curse comes from past life. Personal suffering is there if Lagneśa (lord of Lagna) or Atmakaraka is involved. Eight lord yuti shows ailme nts as the results, whilst tenth house shows financial issues (Kubera house) and humiliation (sthana of Amala yoga).
EFFECT OF CURSE
Areas afflicted will be shown by most afflicting malefics. Here we should pay attention to natural maleficiency and also the yoga. If malefic is lording two signs then the one with planet will be the source of greater challenge/suffering. We use also naisargika chakra (natural zodiac) to provide informations about effect of curse and based on that we know that Shukra curse gives problems with finances and relationships, whilst Guru-śaapa is bad for father, studies and spending money (meena - twelfth house). Cursed Sun is also known as Pitri dosha and affects progeny. Jupiter curse makes one wander as the dhi is failing (similar to weak Lagnadhipati in seventh house - Brhat Parasara Hora Śastra). Budha curse blocks one progres and learning. Lagnesh being cursed makes one prone to commit mistakes. Arudhas yuti Ketu will show area suffering fro m those mistakes. Bhava lorded by curse suffers a lot due to effect of the curse. If its Lagna then for no appareant reason one is attacked and can suffer from bad reputation, second house can destroy family and makes food polluted etc. Curses present in Chara Rasis (movable signs) are more active abroad, opposite for fixed signs. The cursed planet should be analysed in Varga charts to give auspicious advise for different areas of life. Curses which involves Upapada and 2nd lord from it will affect private life and relationships. Position of Shukra from afflicting grahas will show the type of challenges waiting to experience.
Timing of curse can be done by using Moola, Narayana or Vimshottari Dasa. For moola dasa we look at exact planets involved in curse (cursers and cursed). Sri Rama was banished fom kingdom for period of the Moola dasa of Shani (14 years). Sri Rama establish ed Rameśvara Shiva Linga and offered prayers to Lord Shiva who is pratyadi Devata of Sun and the forgiveness has come. Based on that name 'Rama' is enough to remove all curses and sins (ref. Sanjay Rath writings). For Narayana dasa we examine first, eight and tenth from the Dasa Rasi. For Vimshottari Dasa we look at dispositor of curse.
The remedy lies in lord of the sign where the curse is posited or the bhava karaka for this rasi. First we should pay attention to the lord and if it's well-placed then the remedy lies in Guru-roopa of that lord. The list is as follows: Sun - Dakshinamoorti Moon - Mahavidya Mars - Hanuman Budha - Vyasa/Dattatreya Jupiter - Brhasapti Venus - Bhrgu Shani - Various Gurus (parampara mantra) Rahu - Patanjali Ketu - Vedamurti If lord of the house where the curse is placed is (a) affilcted, (b) in dusthana or (c) involved in curse through yuti, drsti or parivartana we should analyse the planet which is the bhava karaka for the house. The list of bhava karakas can be found here. We should give mantra and sadhana based on the pratyadi list, which is mentioned below: Sun - Shiva Moon - Srimati Gouri Mars - Sri Rudra

Budha is cursed as second lord from Upapada and Venus aspects 2H from Upapada. Vishnu removes all curses related to Budha. Lack of motivation (Shani in fifth from Atmakaraka) was also one of the psychological issues for the native. Alternatively for bhava devata we also use Mahavidya of the cursed graha as the remedy. Same history of infidelity as above also made by partner (Shukra in seventh). Relationship has failed in the same time as cursed planet is sixth lord placed in Upapada in seventh from Venus. Dasa Rasi aspected by remedy-planet (bhava karaka or dispositor) or Moola dasa of the same will indicate the improvement and chance to solve the problem with remedies.

Native with spouse were involved in business (Surya Amatyakaraka makes one involved in bussiness as it gives effects of Budha) which is very clear as seventh lord is Amatyakaraka in seventh from Arudha lagna which shows source of income.

With the advent of Mangal dasa in Buddhi-Gati (for grahamalika charts) person were experiencing career mishaps as Mangal lords tenth house is yuti A10 and is involved in curse aspecting Moon by forth house graha drsti.

Other rules: Additionaly if Sun is afflicted remedy comes from Jupiter and vice versa (Rahu grast divaakaro sadrisham). For sixth. By knowing the yoga of these planet we know how the curse can end/what we must do to avoid the disaster. Karaka means solving the issue even without the knowledge of the native. so the yoga clearly indicates real facts from the life of the native. Hopefully this article will help you in understanding Jyotisha. Cursed graha being in tenth from Shani threatens the native from jara-yoga and Shukra with Rahu aspecting second house from Upapada surely allow the act of infidelity made by partner (Shukra lords seventh in Navamsa).
