Shani Rahu Conjunction, Shani Rahu Yuti – Shrapit Yoga, Pitra Dosha

rahu shani conjunction, forms or Pitra Dosha.

Shani and Rahu forms Shrapit Yoga. Shrapit means cursed and Yoga means a planetary combination. Horoscope which has Saturn and Rahu conjunction (Shani Rahu Yuti) is considered as Shrapit or Pitra Dosha or . Some astrologers have an opinion that Saturn’s aspect (Saturn aspects 3rd, 7th and 10th house from itself) on Rahu also results in Shrapit Yoga. It is believed that (shrapit yoga) is a result from the bad Karmics from the past lives which can be a bad deed or an action. Also, one should note that this yoga nullifies the other good yoga present in the same horoscope.

However, we would say, one should closely examine and compare the other good yoga, their strength, shadbal (planetary strength) with Shani and Rahu, the one with more strength will dominate. But because of the presence of this yoga the effects can be less.

Is Shrapit Yoga of Saturn and Rahu is Hereditary?

Well to explain this, let’s see the aspects of both of the planet.

Rahu aspects 5th, 7th and 9th house from its position. We also know that 9th house is the house of Father, 9th from 9th is 5th which is the house of progeny (the future generation) and also the house of grandfather. Also, if we see in reverse order, 9th being your father, 7th being your spouse (life partner which will give you your future generation) and 5th being your progeny, we must say, Yes that’s an hint for Hereditary of this Yoga.

Now coming to Shani’s aspect, Shani aspects 3rd, 7th and 10th house from its position. If we see 9th house, its 3rd from 7th, 7th house is 3rd from 5th and 5th house is 3rd from 3rd. So, Saturn too has an influence on all three major houses which are related to the generation cycle in one’s chart.

The exact conjunction day is September 25th, 2013 IST falls on a Wednesday when Mercury transits into Libra and joins Shani and Rahu in Libra (shani rahu in tula rashi).

We would suggest that if you find this yoga in your kundli or in navmansh (D-9), kindly take some serious astrological consultation on this, no pooja or remedy can remove the effect completely but a good approach and proper remedial procedure will surely bring down the malefic effect close to a minimum.

(and other rashi), what does it mean?

Well this would need a separate post to explain the effect of shani and rahu yuti (conjuction) in tula rashi and various others but to end the anxiety quickly, think in this way:

Shani makes rules and Rahu breaks them. Shani love to be in limits and Rahu wants to be limitless. This could lead into frustrations, tensions or in very very extreme case a suicidal tendency in a native. Please note that one should not jump to the conclusion that Oh! Since I have Shani and Rahu conjuction, I may commit suicide. Please, it’s our humble advice that you should also check other houses and planets before deducing anything.

However, a brief is given below based on the Rahu Saturn conjunction:

  1. Possibility of inter-caste marriage
  2. Inability to adapt new culture, possibly after foreign relocation
  3. Change of Religion, one might convert his/her religion (possibly after inter-caste marriage)
  4. Social rejection

Did you know?

Shani and Rahu conjunction will last till Rahu leaves Libra. Rahu will leave Libra on 13th July, 2014. Until then the yuti will form Shrapit Yoga or Pitra Dosha or Pitru Dosha.

The last time both Saturn and Rahu were in Libra was 1864-1865 which is about 150 years ago.

This conjunction will occur at 15 degrees Libra in the Swati constellation which would lead the following consequences as a whole:


  1. A good change in political system which will ultimately favor the masses.
  2. Good economy or social reform.


  1. More unnatural deaths may be because of natural calamity, riots or because of any unexpected reason.
  2. Bad economy.
  3. Bad political system, most prominent political leader could face deceits or may be overthrown.

  15. I got shani and rahu in 5th house of my horoscope. I’m also blind. The cause as doctors say is because of a genetical problem. Is this because of these 2 planets forming pitraDosha?

    I am jobless. Rahu +SAaturn in 10th House.I cant continue my job more than 2 months.help.

    • Hello Soumik Ji.

      You have Scorpio ascendant and Sagittarius rashi. Your lagn lord Mangal is in 4th house of lord Shani with Sun (lord of 10th house), Mercury (lord of 8th and 11th house) and Ketu. Ideally this combination in not so helpful for the fructification of the benefits related to 4th house. So I would request you to do some remedies for Mars.

      Ketu being in 4th house will try to detach you from you native place, mother, house etc. You should also do remedies for Shani and Surya as lord Shani is debilitated in your 10th house, the house of Karma, so praying lord Shani, visiting Shani temple on Saturdays, reciting shani mantra or Hanuman Chalisa would definitely help you from the wrath of lord Shani.

      Surya is in your 4th house (house of lord Shani) and aspects directly to your 10th house where lord Shani is posited, so this direct aspect of Surya and Shani is the main reason of the turmoil related to your career. remedies of Surya will help you to at least bring the effects to the minimum. For Surya I would suggest just offer Jal in the morning.

      Currently you are running under Rahu mahadasha and Moon’s antar-dasha, overall it will be a mixed period.
      You will start to rise from 4-Sep-2018 and will achieve almost everything from 2018 – 2034.

      I am so confident that if you do these remedies, it will help you a lot.

      Jai Maa!
