Gandmool Dosha and the Remedies to Reduce its Effects

Gandmool Dosha may be present in your horoscope if you’re born under six specific nakshatras. If you have Gandmool Dosha, there is no need to panic. In fact, many famous personalities have been born with this dosha and yet they have achieved great things in life.

Gandmool Dosha – How Is It Formed?

Gandmool Dosha - Six of  the 27 Nakshaatras
The 27 Nakshatras

There are 27 possible Janma Nakshatras or birth stars in Vedic Astrology. Nakshatra means star, but actually, the 27 Nakshatras signify 27 constellations. 

The Moon In Indian Astrology

The moon is the most significant planet while casting your natal chart. The sun may be more powerful, but the moon is the nearest and so has more effect on the earth and everything in it. We all know how the moon affects the oceans, causing tides. Similarly, this graha also affects humans. So, Vedic astrology uses a moon-based system.

The moon moves across the 27 nakshatras and across rashis. Astrologers look at the placement of the moon in relation to the nakshatras at the rime of your birth. Consequently, the Nakshatra against which the moon is aligned at the time of your birth becomes your Janma Nakshatra, your birth star. 

Ganda Mool Nakshatras

As mentioned before, there are 27 Nakshatras that are significant in astrology. Of these, six are considered Gand Mool Nakshatras. They are:

  1. Aswini
  2. Ashlesha
  3. Magha
  4. Jyeshta
  5. Moola
  6. Revathi

If you are born under any of these nakshatras, you may be considered to have Gandmool Dosha. Further, this dosha may have many bad effects on your life. 

Gandmool Dosha Effects

Just like any other Dosha, Gandmoool Disha also creates some issues. Depending on the Nakshatra, the effects might vary:

  • Aswini

Those born under this star may cause problems for the father, and they themselves may face financial issues at some time or other. However, they will generally lead a prosperous and successful life

  • Ashlesha

Birth under this star may mean that the person will be careless in money matters, spending without thought for the future. They may also have a problematic relationship with parents and siblings.

  • Magha

Those born under this nakshatra may have a troubled relationship with their mother or father. Some may even enjoy a very prosperous life. In fact, those born in the fourth phase of this star may have more stability and may rise to great heights in their profession.

  • Jyeshta

A person born under this nakshatra may develop strained relationships with his siblings. Their relationship with their mother may also be affected. Moreover, those born under the fourth phase of this star may have to face a lot of problems throughout their lives.

  • Moola

Those born under this star may cause problems for their parents. They may also indulge in carefree spending, and lose their wealth. 

  • Revathi

A person born under the first three phases of this nakshatra may not be affected much, they may even have a happy, prosperous life, with a successful career. However, those born under the fourth phase of this star may cause problems for their parents, and also have to face many problems in their own lives.

The Other Side of the Coin

So, is it all bad for those born under the Ganda Mool Nakshatras? Certainly not, as you can see from the above predictions, there may be many positive results. Many professional astrologers say that the Pada or phase of the nakshatra under which you are born is more important.

Gandmool Dosha Meaning

Gandmool Dosha Rashi and Nakshatras

Two Rashis and Two Nakshatras meeting at the same time

The word Gandu in Sanskrit means joint. Gandamool dosha occurs at the joining point of two nakshatras. Many experienced astrologers say this dosha is very harmful only when there is a joining of two Nakshatras (one being your birth star) and also of two Rashis (one being your birth sign) at the time of birth. This occurs only in a few instances. A joint can happen only at the beginning or at the end phases of the Nakshatra, so the pada is also very important.
