Kal-sarpa Yoga or Kal-sarpa Dosha

People fear Kalsarpa Dosha due to some fake astrologers. Astrology is born from Vedas and Kalsarpa Yoga or Kalasarpa Dosha is not mentioned in the scriptures of Vedas. It is not mentioned even in the Bhragusanhita, Parashar Sanhita and Ravana Sanhita.

As per Vedic astrology, Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets and they don?t have their own identity. When Rahu is alone, then it will keep the influence of Saturn and if Ketu is alone, then it will keep the influence of Mars. Therefore, people should not be afraid of these planets.

When all the planets are placed in either side of the Rahu and Ketu axis, this yoga forms, if during the formation of this yoga any planet aspects Rahu or Ketu then this Yoga will be cancelled. It is because these are the shadow planets and they give results according to other planets.

Important points to remember when analyzing the Kalsarpa Yoga:

a. All planets must be hemmed between Rahu and Ketu.
b. Even if one planet is outside the Rahu Ketu axis there is no Kalsarpa Yoga.
c. The kalsarpa Yoga is not always bad. It has the power to confer gains too.
d. Rahu is moon’s north node and Ketu ismoon’s south node.

This is among the most fearsome dosha in astrology similar to Sade-sati and people are scared just by hearing the name of this yoga. ?Kaal? means death and Sarpa means snake and the name itself is good enough to scare people.

Kal-Sarpa Yoga has its bright shades. It makes one industrious, hardworking, aware of one?s own ability- despite mental restlessness. It raises the natives to top positions in their respective fields provided other Raja Yogas are present. Rahu-Ketu axis favors rise in mundane life while Ketu-Rahu axis indicates elevation in spiritual matters.

Remedy of Kal-Sarp Yoga or Kal-Sarp Dosha
The overall general impact of so-called Kal-Sarp dosha is suspected as: Hurdles in every important and auspicious work, lack of mental peace, low self-confidence, deterioration of health and reduces longevity of life, poverty and destruction of wealth, destruction of business and loss of job, poor relations with family members and friends/colleagues and treachery from friends and business partner.

But my long years of experience in active practice of Vedic Astrology says, any of the above ill effect is only felt if other unfavorable planetary combination is present in a native?s chart.

However, it is always beneficial to chant the Mantra of ?OM NAMAH SHIVAY? and ?MAHA MRITUNJAY JAP?. One should pray to Lord Shiva, Lord Hanuman and if possible should do a FAST on Monday.
