What is Kaal Sarp Yoga ?
अग्रे राहुरधः केतुः सर्वे मध्यगताः ग्रहाः।
योगाऽयं कालसर्पाख्यो शीघ्रं तं तु विनाशय।।
When Rahu is ahead, Ketu is last, and 7 planets are situated in between, Kaal Sarp Yoga is formed. Kaal Sarp means a snake who can swallow all planets.
When all the planets will be eaten away by a poisonous snake then how the native can flourish due to planets ? It means a person whose horoscope has Kaal Sarp Yoga, suffers due to hurdles in all endeavors and experiences failure, worries, poor health, irritation etc.
However it is also a fact that many leaders who have Kaal Sarp Yoga in their horoscopes have achieved unparalleled success in politics in spite of passing through many hardships. For example, Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, George Bush, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Narayan Dutt Tiwari, Mohan Lal Sukhadia, Abraham Lincoln, Margaret Thacher, Dr. S. Radhakrishan, T.N. Sheshan, Ajit Singh etc. have Kaal Sarp Yoga in their horoscopes.
Kaal Sarp Yoga can be of 2 types :
1. Udit Golardh (Risen Hemisphere) Kaal Sarp
2. Anudit Golardh (Not Risen Hemisphere) Kaal Sarp
In Kaal Sarp Rahu is regarded as head and Ketu as tail. Rahu and Ketu move in retrograde motion. Both remain at a distance of 1800 between them i.e. they remain opposite to each other. For example it Rahu is situated in Aries, Ketu will be in Libra. The next sign of Rahu’s stay will be Pisces and for Ketu it will be Virgo. Rahu will move next in signs Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius and Scorpio. In this manner if Rahu is in Aries and Ketu in Libra and all planets are situated in signs Aries, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio and Libra then it is Udit Kaal Sarp Yoga. In opposite example, it Rahu is in Aries and Ketu in Libra and all other planets are posited in Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo and Libra then it is Anudit Kaal Sarp Yoga.
When even a single planet is situated outside the axis of Rahu and Ketu, it is called Partial Kaal Sarp Yoga.
If few planets are posited with Rahu and Ketu, it must be ascertained whether their degrees are more or less than degrees of Rahu or Ketu. This will decide if the posited planet is situated between Rahu and Ketu or is outside. When more than one planets are situated outside Rahu-Ketu, it is not considered Kaal Sarp Yoga.
When all planets are posited between Rahu & Ketu in such manner that at least one planet is situated in every house between Rahu- Ketu, this Kaal Sarp Yoga is regarded as more harmful. It becomes more detrimental when Sun or Moon is conjunct with Rahu or Ketu. Most difficult combination is formed when Sun and Moon are posited with Rahu and Ketu and at least one planet is situated in every house between Rahu and Ketu.
When Rahu, Moon and Sun are placed together, it is Grahan Kaal Sarp Yoga. It’s adversity increases 1000 times. Such natives must arrange for the appeasement of Kaal Sarp Yoga.
Kaal Sarp Yoga is of 12 types according to the situation of Rahu in 12 houses. These are :
1. Anant 2. Kulik
3. Vasuki 4. Shankhpal
5. Padma 6. Mahapadma
7. Takshak 8. Karkotak
9. Shankhchur 10. Ghaatak
11. Vishdhar 12. Naag
Normally it is considered that if chief of a family has this evil, the whole family suffers. This is not true. It is not necessary that if the father is suffering from Kaal Sarp Yoga, children will also suffer. However it is observed that many persons of a family sometimes have this combination in their horoscopes. It is better to arrange for appeasement of Kaal Saarp Yoga so that children are not born with this evil.
A question may arise in mind that if Kaal Sarp Yoga is present in horoscope, it must be causing problems all the times. This can be clarified by stating that there are 2 types of difficulties according to astrology. Certain adversities are for a short period according to transit or dasha. Certain adversities are permanent due to combinations present in horoscope. Kaal Sarp Yoga is one such combination, that continues to cause agony to the native whole life. Whenever there is Mahadasha or Antardasha of Rahu or Ketu, its influence increases. Apart from it when along with dasha, Rahu and Ketu transit over natal Rahu and Ketu, Kaal Sarp Yoga becomes fully effective.
A person suffering from Kaal Sarp Yoga has to try again and again for achieving success. Sometimes success comes in sight but the native is not able to get it. It does not imply that if a person has Kaal Sarp Yoga in his horoscope, he will not be able to get success in life ever. There are many examples when such persons have occupied the highest position in the country as has been explained before.
Effect of Kaal Sarp Yoga : Persons born in this combination have mental unrest, hurdles in gain of wealth or birth of a child. There is disharmony in married life. The native may have bad dreams. He has continuous fear of mishappenings. He does not get full returns for his talent and hard work. There could be sudden loss of money or reputation. The native may suffer due to various diseases that may not be cured by medicine.
The remedies of Kaal Sarp Yoga may provide relief from its troubles. Whenever there is mahadarsha, antardasha or transit of Rahu or Ketu then prescribed worship and rituals should be performed with faith and devotion. Lighting a lamp containing mustard oil for 43 days before Kaal Sarp Yoga Yantra gives relief.
