Kala Sarpa Dosha


The planets and their positions have a lot of influence on our lives. At the time of birth, their positions in the birth chart impact our lives. A dosha indicates bad conditions in the natal chart. Derived from Sanskrit, dosha signifies physical disorders. In Vedic Astrology, it signifies planets in an unfavorable condition in the natal chart. Doshas are believed to create malefic effects even if planets in transit are in a good position. This could adversely affect the native’s life.

Kala Sarpa Dosha

What is Kala Sarpa Dosha?

Kala means time, and Sarpa means serpent. Kala Sarpa means ‘Serpent of Time.’

In Vedic Astrology, Rahu and Ketu represent the serpent. While Rahu is the head of the serpent, Ketu forms the body. When all planets, including Lagna, are placed within Rahu and Ketu, Kala Sarpa Dosha exists. It is also called Kala Sarpa Yoga. It is a powerful dosha and can nullify other good yogas in a natal chart.

Individuals pay for the karma of bad deeds of past life, and they suffer the impact in the current life. Once the phase is over, the natives begin to rise in life and reach a good position.

How Cosmic Alignment Creates Kala Sarpa Dosha

All the planets – the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, are hemmed between Rahu and Ketu. This positioning or alignment of the cosmic bodies creates Kala Sarpa Dosha. Even if one planet is outside Rahu or Ketu’s axis, there will be no dosha existing.
