Introduction to Kala Sarpa Yoga

According to Vedic Astrology, Kala Sarpa Yoga is an inauspicious Yoga in the birth chart of an individual, which is formed when all planets are hemmed between the nodal planets – Rahu and Ketu. The reasons for Kala Sarpa Yoga could be due to killing or harming a snake, destroying anthills, wrath of the serpent god from previous births, known or unknown sins committed, etc. can lead to Kala Sarpa Yoga in your current birth.

Rahu and Ketu are the shadow planets in Vedic astrology, which according to mythology form the head and tail of a snake respectively. Hence, these two planets are always placed opposite each other, and their position in each House can have specific effects on the native.
