What is Kala Sarpa Dosha

Kal means Time and Sarpa means serpent. In Astrology Rahu and Ketu is known as great serpent. Rahu is known as the Mouth of the Serpent and Ketu is the rest of the Body. When all the planets including the Lagna is confined within Rahu and Ketu, it is known as Kala sarpa Dosha or Kala sarpa Yoga. People born with this yoga can experience unexpected Success or Failure as per their Past life Karma. But they will certainly go through lot of ups and down.

If any Planet is out of this Rahu-Ketu axis, this will break this Kala Sarpa Yoga and No Malefic Result of this Yoga will be experienced. Even if Lagna is out of this axis, this Yoga will not be formed. For ideal formation all the signs between Rahu and Ketu should be occupied by planets continuously and No vacant Sign should be there.  If Rahu or ketu joins with any planet placed in Lagna or 7th house, inauspicious result of this Yoga reduces to a great extent. Along with this if other good yogas are also present, you will be able to enjoy the good result after some initial hurdle.

I have written a detailed article on the effect of 7th house Rahu in Kundli.

Many People Argue that there is no mention of this yoga in Astrological Classics and hence it should not be considered. But we all know that there are hundreds of Yogas mentioned in Classics and None of them will give result in all the Horoscope. Why So? Because like Yoga there is also Yoga bhanga. That is why with many negative Doshas some people can rise very high whereas with many good yogas a person can not achieve anything in life. So Only because this Yoga is not mentioned in Classic, we cannot ignore it. We will see this Yoga in chart of both highly Successful person as well as in the chart of Poor people also. This is a grey area which needs more research. Great Astrologer of this Century Mr. B V Raman in his Book has also suggested to check this Yoga but with proper consideration.

Whether it is a Dosha or Yoga

It is more often called as a Dosha because it mostly gives inauspicious result. When all the planets are within the Rahu-Ketu axis, they become ineffective and cannot give result as per their full potential. That is why it is often termed as Dosha rather than Yoga. But that does not mean everyone who is having this Yoga will suffer in their life.

There are Two types of Kala sarpa Yoga- if Rahu is placed 6 Rashi ahead of all the planet and Ketu is placed behind all the Planets, in Such cases this Yoga will not give Much trouble and difficulty. You will be able to enjoy the life. When Rahu or Ketu is placed in Trikon, the Good result of this Yoga increases. When Rahu becomes strong and all the planets are moving towards Rahu, the beneficial result increases. If the Planet associated with Rahu or Ketu is in own sign or in exaltation sign, the inauspicious result of this Yoga is reduced largely.

But if Ketu is 6 Rashi ahead of all the planets and Rahu is placed behind all the Planets. In Such Situation it gives inauspicious Result. When Rahu or Ketu Occupies Kendra the inauspicious result increases. When Rahu becomes debilitated and all the planets move towards its, the inauspicious result of this Yoga increases.

We know that Rahu and Ketu are related with our Past life deed. They have direct connection with our past life unfulfilled desires. So, when all the planets including Lagna is within the clutch of them, our life is mostly driven by our Past life Karmafal.

The general belief is that Kala sarpa Yoga is capable of spoiling all other good yoga in the Horoscope and it always give evil result. In interpreting the Kalasarpa Dosha we must see the houses involved and the planets involved. In each case result will be different. While predicting the Results we need to consider all the influences present in the chart. Only seeing the Presence of this yoga if we predict anything it will be a big mistake. For example, if the Kala sarpa Dosha is present in 1-7 axis, it is capable of destroying Marital happiness. But If the 7th Lord and Venus is well placed, such situation can be avoided. So, while predicting we need to consider all the factors.

It also has bright side as well. It makes a person hard working, Practical and it can take a person to a great height provided there is other supporting factors.
