Gandamool Dosha is one of the Doshas where people struggle a lot through life. This Dosha occurs in an individual’s life due to the misalignment of the planets especially those that are malefic, in the birth chart.

The planets that give rise to this Dosha to happen are Mercury and the south lunar node Ketu. If these are the main Nakshatras that the native is born with then Gandamool Dosha will occur. If an individual is born under the specific 6 nakshatras then Gandamool Dosha is bound to be present.

Significance of Moon in Indian Astrology:

While preparing the natal chart or birth chart or Janam Kundali, the position of the moon is of extreme importance. Some people might be thinking that the Sun should be considered to be of most importance as it is the centre of our solar system.

Sun is indeed a very important element but since the Moon is closer to the Earth, its effects are much stronger on Earth and the living things existing within it. Well this point can be proven by the tides having high and low tendencies due to the different phases of the Moon.

In the Vedic astrology, Moon is used as the basis for any prediction or assumption. There are 27 Nakshatras in all and some Rashis as well. The Moon moves across these Nakshatras and Rashis.

At the time of the birth, the placement of the Moon in relation with these Nakshatras and Rashis are considered. With the help of this, a Janam Kundali is prepared. The Nakshatra with which the Moon is closely related at the time of the birth is known to be the Birth Star or Janma Nakshatra of the individual.

Gandamool Nakshatras:

As mentioned earlier, there are 27 Nakshatras in all in Vedic astrology. Each of these Nakshatras has a significant meaning. Of the 27 Nakshatras, six of them are known to be Gandamool Nakshatras.

These six Nakshatras are namely- Ashwini, Ashlesha, Magha, Jyeshtha, Moola, and Revathi. An individual born with any of these Nakshatras to be their birth star may have Gandamool Dosha. This Dosha can get many worrisome problems with it.

Moola: The people born with this star in their Kundali are likely to bring a lot of trouble in the life of their parents. These kids might even end up spending a lot of money and hence tend to lose their parent’s wealth.

Revathi: The first three phases of this particular Dosha might not cause a lot of problem for the people having this Dosha in their Kundali. These people tend to live a happy and successful life. However, the fourth phase can be worrisome and the people with this phase might pose problems for their parents and won’t have a very smooth life themselves.

Meaning of Gandamool Dosha:

This particular is seen in an individual’s Kundali at the point where two different nakshatras join. According to the astrologers, this Dosha is a very harmful one.

Gandamool Dosha is especially harmful when two nakshatras, one being an individual’s birth star and two Rashis, one being an individual’s zodiac sign join.

However, this Dosha is a very rare one and is seen in the Kundalis of some very specific people. The joining of two different nakshatras is seen either at the beginning of or at the end of the nakshatra.

On the brighter side, the people with Gandamool Dosha in their Kundali tend to be very pretty and have a natural charm. These people will be very social and will always appear happy. They will work very hard to achieve their goals.

Remedies for Gandamool Dosha:

The parents of a kid born with Dosha in its Kundali should consider keeping a shanti pooja on the 27th day of their child’s birth. This pooja can be performed any time in life and also when the Moon finally comes in the proper Nakshatra.

Chanting of Maha Mritunjaya pooja by the person having this Dosha in his/her life can also help. One should also consider worshipping Lord Ganesh and donate green vegetables every Wednesday.

Donation of emerald, utensils made of bronze, amla and coriander will please Buddha who in return might help in curing the Gandamool Dosha. Praying to Mercury also acts like a remedy for this Dosha.
