Kaal Sarp Dosh is a yoga formed due to presence of planets at either side of Rahu and Ketu axis. It is considered that if there is Kaal Sarp Yog present in any Horoscope that person may have a tough life. However, it is not always true. Mostly people have Kala Sarpa Dosha in their birth charts and they are successful in their concerned areas of life. Let’s find out if you have this Yoga in your birth-chart or not with our Kaal Sarp Dosh finder:

It is believed that this yoga is formed in birth chart due to bad karmas done by an individual in previous births. The person may get mental instability throughout the life if this yoga is present in the Kundli There are also remedies and Kaal Saarp Dosh Puja defined to nullify its effects in Vedic Astrology. We need to understand first in depth about this Yoga before proceeding ahead.

What is Kaal Sarp Yog?

This Yoga is formed when all the seven major planets Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are hemmed between the shadow planets-Rahu and Ketu. As we know that Rahu and Ketu are 180 degree apart from each other, hence there is a possibility that all the other seven planets can occupy the place in between these two. This positioning of planets in a horoscope is known as Kaal Saarp Yog.
It is also necessary to check the degrees of the planets while analyzing the chart for Kaal Saarp Dosh. Let’s suppose if Mars and Rahu are in the same sign and Mars has 10 degrees while Rahu has 10.5 degrees, it will be considered the Kala Saarpa Dosha. Whereas if Mars has 10.5 degree and Rahu has 10 Degree, it will not be a Kaal Sarp Yog as Mars is not lying within Rahu and Ketu axis. The degree of Rahu and Ketu must be more than the other seven planets in the same sign for its formation.
As this yog is formed due to planets Rahu and Ketu, hence we need to understand about these planets, what do they mean and how these planets form the alignments with other planets to provide the results, depending on planetary placements in the horoscope.

What is Rahu?

Rahu is known as the “head” of Serpent. It is a shadowy planet or “Chhaya Grah”, which does not have any physical appearance. It is basically not a planet, as it is north node of the planet Moon. However, it can be considered as a planet in Vedic Astrology, as it also influences people like other seven major planets. It is considered as a malefic planet in astrology. It has only head, that’s why it only knows how to eat rather than how to digest the things. It wants to eat more and more. It gets exalted in “Taurus/Gemini” and behaves like planet “Saturn”.

What is Ketu?

We have already discussed about the formation of this Yog. It can be formed in various ways. There are 12 houses defined in Vedic Astrology. Hence, it can be formed in 12 ways in one’s natal chart. Let’s find the names below of different Kaal Saarp Yog formations:

Anant, Kulik, Vasuki, Shankhpal, Padam, Maha Padam, Takshak, Karkotak, Shankhnaad, Ghatak, Vishdhar, and Sheshnaag Kaal Sarp Dosha.

Effects of Kaal Sarp Dosh

Generally, it is considered that this yog creates misfortune in every aspect of life. However, it is not always true. Although it may create hurdles in all matters of life like health, wealth, career, profession, love, marriage, children and many more events related to you, but ultimately you will rise through adversity in your life. It is also very important to know the exact effect of Kala Saarpa Dosha for an individual. For that, the exact positioning of shadow planets Rahu and Ketu are observed in any horoscope.

For example, if Rahu sits in first house and Ketu in seventh house, it may create hurdles for self and also to accumulate you wealth. If the same alignment falls in the Second house and eighth house respectively, then native may suffer from family relations, wealth and other things related to second house. Hence this Yoga can be judged through the 12 houses in the horoscope by the placement of shadow planets.
