Kaal Sarp dosh is one of the most dreaded dosha considered these days in Vedic astrology. When the native gets to know that he/she has Kaal Sarp dosh, it is a shock. Actually some astrologers and Pundits make a big hue and cry about Kal Sarp dosh. Is kalsarp dosh really all that bad. Does it destroy marriages, brings ill health and misfortune. Given below are some facts that should help you understand Kal Sarp dosh much better.
What is Kaal Sarp Yog?
The Two Moon nodes Rahu and Ketu, which are the shadows and have strong, influence on each other and of course other planets through their 5,7 and 9 aspect and also when conjoined. Kal Sarp dosh in simple words means the bad Time of the Serpent. Kal meaning time and Sarp meaning Serpent. Rahu is referred to as head of the serpent and Ketu the tail of the serpent. Therefore when there is the placement of all 7 planets between Rahu and Ketu then Kal Sarp dosh is formed. According to the situation of Rahu and Ketu in 12 houses of horoscope there are Kal Sarp dosh of 12 types depending on the placement in the 12 houses. The Kal Sarp dosh is of two types ascending and descending. If all the 7 planets are eaten away by Rahu’s mouth then it is ascending Kaal Sarp dosh. If all planets are situated in back of Rahu then Descending Kaal Sarp dosh is formed.
If all houses situated between Rahu and Ketu have planets then Kaal Sarp dosha is fully effective. If Sun or Moon is present with Rahu or Ketu then this dosh is more lethal. Also according to horoscope whenever the mahadasha or antardasha of Rahu/Ketu comes then Kaal Sarp Yog is likely to play much impact. In a horoscope if all 7 planets are between Rahu and Ketu (the Two Nodes) but few planets are outside the axis of Rahu and Ketu then partial Kaal Sarp Yog is formed. The closer the planets to the Rahu/ketu axis the more deadlier the impact of this dosha.
What are the effects of Kaal Sarp Yog?
The Effect of Kaal Sarp Yog depends upon the placement of Rahu and Ketu in the Lagan Chart. Like stated earlier there is 12 formation of Kaal Sarp Yog whose effect will depend upon which houses they afflict in the birth chart. Generally people with Kaal Sarp Yog suffer from mental stress, financial losses, progeny problems, marital problems and disputes, career problems, and domestic unhappiness.
