Brihaspati is the most revered deity in Hindu religion. Brihaspati is a ruler of the Navagrahas. He is linked to the planet Jupiter. Jupiter represents religion, philosophy, knowledge and prosperity. An aligned and well-placed Jupiter in the horoscope has several positive benefits. People blessed with a well-placed Jupiter in the horoscope can achieve quick success and good luck favours. Guru Mahadasha is the time when the Planet Brihaspati or Guru is nearest to the star or Nakshatra in which the individual was born. The effect of Guru Mahadasha lasts for an entire life depending upon the position of the planet in the horoscope. Guru Dosh signifies the weak effect of Guru. Brihaspati has positive and a benign nature but a weakly aligned position in horoscope may cause Guru Dosha. It affects the overall nature of a person. Guru Dosh affects the areas such as law, economics, religion, philosophy and banking. The ill effects of Guru Dosha are also experienced if it is aligned with Rahu, Shani or Ketu in the horoscope. Brihaspati Dosh may cause health issues such as Cough, colds, hearing problems, jaundice, high blood pressure, asthma, constipation, ear infection, and throat infections. Unfavourably placed Brihaspati may cause the reduction in its positive effects. This inauspicious Yog is called Brihaspati Dosh.
