Retrograde_Venus

Shukra, the planet Venus, is known to provide all the comforts and luxuries in life. It’s a highly beneficial celestial body only if in alignment with your horoscope. The planet is the ruler of Vrishabha and Tula rashi. Venus is also the god of love and romance and reflects feminine qualities. If Shukra is strong in your birth chart, you will appreciate nature and enjoy harmonious relationships. However, due to Shukra Dosha, you will experience several ill-effects and hardships in your life.

Significance of Shukra in Shukra Dosha

Shukra Graha in astrology has immense power to induce beauty, harmony, deep feelings and sympathy in your life. It will play a profound role in your marriage & other relationships, business, art and also in the quality of your social life.

Speaking of love and romance, Venus doesn’t reflect what your ideal partner or how your relationships will be like. Instead, it gives an overall picture of your love preferences as an individual and your likely attractions. This can actually be the opposite of what is beneficial to you.

In short, Venus influences your love preferences, how you behave in relationships, what you are looking for in relationships and your creative expression. It, also, strongly influences how your creative juices flow and the unique style you have towards artistic expression.

Shukra Dosha, its Causes and the Effects

The ill-effects of Shukra invite troubled married life and disturbed family life, weakness of sexual organs, loss of wealth, health problems, particularly the eyes and kidneys and others. It also leads to the loss of bodily lustre, asthma and paralysis.

All these issues are due to the ill-placed Venus in your natal chart during your birth. Venus in different houses gives different results depending on its position during the time of birth.

The native with an ill-placed Shukra will also suffer business losses, build debt and will also experience defame in personal or professional lives. Other bad effects include:

  • Loss through gambling and race
  • Intoxication
  • Seeking sexual gratification through illegal means
  • Indigestion and other stomach problems
  • Unhealthy looks and lethargic feeling
  • Absolving of marriage

All the above of Shukra Dosha in Kundalini depends on the placement. But all the effects are there to some degree in everyone. But the placement determines when and how much every issue affects the native.
