A marriage muhurat can be afflicted with various doshas. Astrology says that the day of the marriage should be fixed after thoroughly considering these doshas. People who do not bother about these doshas may face difficulties and problems in their marriage. In this article we will discuss about some of these doshas.
Ekargal Dosha
The ekargal dosha is also known as Kharjoor dosha. This dosha is afflicted on the marriage muhurat when planets are situated at odd distance of 1st, 3rd, 5th or 7th house covering all the 28 nakshatras including Abhijit while determining the nakshatra position of Sun and Moon.
This dosha becomes malefic if the distance of the nakshatras between Sun and Moon is uneven and any inauspicious yoga like vatipat, shoola, ganda, vyaghat, vaidhrit, vajra, vishkumbh, paridhi or atigand is situated between Sun and Moon’s distance. This dosha is ineffective if Moon is located on the samsangyak nakshatra.
Upagrah Dosha
The upagrah dosha is formed when a relationship is established between the Sun’s nakshatra and marriage nakshatra. If the nakshatra of marriage is situated at either of the 5, 7, 8, 10, 14, 15, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24 or 25th nakshatra from the nakshatra of the Sun then this dosha is created. 
For example the marriage day has Moon on Mrigashira nakshatra and Sun on Ashwini, astrologer after calculation finds that Mrigashira is situated at the 5th place from Ashwini (Sun’s nakshatra) for which upagrah dosha is formed. Astrologers say that marriage should not be fixed during this inauspicious dosha as the bride and groom may be afflicted by its malefic impact.
Yuti Dosha
Yuti dosha is another condition which may harm a marriage muhurat. While determining the date of marriage astrologer carefully studies the combination of planet, nakshatra, tithi and other aspects of the day to find an auspicious muhurat for the marriage. Yuti dosha is malefic in this purpose. It is formed by the combination of Moon’s nakshatra and any malefic nakshatra like Saturn, Rahu or Ketu.
According to astrological principles yuti is always inauspicious whether it is made up of malefic or benefic planets. But its malefic power lessens when;
  • 1. Moon is exalted and situated in its own sign.
  • 2. If Jupiter aspects the Moon or is stationed with the Moon on the centre house.
  • 3. Combination of Moon and any malefic planet on a nakshatra and if their signs are different then  yuti dosha becomes futile.
