Kaal Sarpa Yoga,effects and Related Remedies

Kaal Sarpa Yoga or Kaal Sarpa Dosha is considered to be formed in an individual's astrological birth chartbirth chartDefinition: A diagram showing exact position of planets in signs at time of birth of an individual prepared with the help of time, date and place of birth....
when all the planets, including ascendant(Lagna) are posited between RahuRahuDefinition: Dragon’s head, used in Indian Vedic astrology....
and Ketu, thus half of the astrological birth chart has no planets. Rahu should be considered always moving in an anti-clockwise direction (Apasavya).

The Kaal Sarpa is generally an Arishta Yoga(inauspicious combination). Kaal means death and Sarpa means snake (poison). This Yoga is one among the most feared Yogas in Vedic Indian astrology.

Kaal Sarpa yoga is both auspicious and inauspicious

INAUSPICIOUS RESULTS: A person having Kaal Sarpa Yoga has to go through various difficulties and death-like agonies in every phase of one's life.Individuals born under Kaal Sarpa Yoga do not get the amount of success they deserve, instead of their firm determination, dedication and hard work. A sudden disease, loss of prestige, wealth or even death at an early age of a family member is also indicated.

The desired achievements are delayed or fulfilled after much difficulties and the financial position keeps deteriorating,especially when (Rahu) is present in Trik Bhava, second and eighth house in an astrological birth chart having Kaal Sarpa Yoga.

People face following problems due to Kaal Sarpa Yoga, present in their astrological birth charts:-

  • Obstacles in auspicious ceremonies.
  • Delay in marriage of self or progeny or disturbed married life.
  • Problem in conceiving or delay in birth of a child.
  • Accidents, prolonged illness to the family members.
  • Sudden death in the family.
  • Lack of mental peace or disputes in family.
  • Delay in growth of career, increase in debts or financial ups and downs.

Kaal Sarpa Yoga is more effective during the Mahadasha and Antardasa of Rahu and Ketu. The results are not felt the same in horoscopes of natives having Kaal Sarpa Yoga, as they keep changing from person to person, due to the difference in strength and positions of the beneficbeneficDefinition: planets having natural beneficial and positive influences, opposite to malefic....

  General Remedies: Basic remedy(upaya) for Kaal Sarpa Yoga or Dosha 

One should chant mantra to please Lord Shiva 
Om Namah Shivay "(ॐनमःशिवाय) 
and/or Gayatri mantra
Om Bhur Bhuva Swaha Tat Savitur Varenyam | Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat"   (ॐभूर्भुव: स्व: तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं।भर्गोदेवस्यधीमहि, धीयोयोन: प्रचोदयात्।।) 108 times.

People should observe fast(Vrat), perform Puja and Rudrabhishek to please Lord Shiva on Mahashivaratri, Shravan Somvar and Sawan Shivratri, offer Bel Patra, plums, fruits, flowers and raw milk added to water (Jal) on Shivalinga in Shiva temple.

Some astrologers believe that there will be no (malefic) results, if position of Lagna is outside Rahu and Ketu.

Types of kaal Sarpa Yoga based on  twelve houses:

of an astrological birth chart, which have been named under the names of legendary serpents, by the Indian astrologers with their imagination. Associating the names of these legendary serpents with different forms of Kaal Sarpa Yoga is based on myth and it has  no astrological significance.

 The impact of these twelve forms of yoga, benefic or malefic may vary in intensity due to the  position of planets and other combinations,benefic or malefic,in astrological birth charts of the natives.

  1. Anant kal Sarpa Yoga: When Rahu (dragon's head) is posited in (first house) and ketu (dragon's tail) in seventh house and all the planets are hemmed between them (both the nodes) in left side, we call it Anant Kaal Sarpa Yoga or Opposite Kaal Sarpa Yoga (Vipreet Kaal Sarpa Yoga).          

    Results:There may be influx of wealth or extraordinary financial gains, but one has to struggle very hard for career. Late marriage, disturbed marital life or unhappy relationship is also indicated.
