Kal Sarpa Yoga - II

ॐ श्री गुरावे नमः !
ॐ नमः शिवाय!

Now that we know the types and forms of Kal Sarpa Yoga, let us see few examples of this yoga and a general understanding, how to deal with it.

Kala Sarpa Yoga/Kala Amrita Yoga(KSY/KAY) When all planets are enclosed between Rahu and Ketu, or Ketu and Rahu respectively.

e.g. of KSY

Nelson Mandela, Carl Sagan, Pope Jules II, Pope Gregory XIII, Benito Mussolini (Dictator of Italy from 1922-1943) etc,

e.g. of KAY

Singer Yesudas, Margaret Thatcher, G.W.Bush,

People with KSY or KAY like status but one or more planet outside.

Mahatma Gandhi, Tony Blair, Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Adolph hitler, Ronald reagan, Bill Clinton, Deepak Chopra, Bill gates, and the list is endless.

Quote: B V Raman:
Rahu must occupy one of the first six houses from the lagna, i.e., bhava 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6.
Kala-Sarpa yoga does not apply even if one planet is outside the Rahu -Ketu Axis.
If one planet is outside the axis results are good in the form of leadership or activism for social change.

Though the person himself is in the trap of excessive desire, he is able to cut loose and help those who are helpless or not in a position to cut loose.

e.g. Mahatma Gandhi, Jupiter is outside, which made him world class compassionate leader. (This is true for Jupiter or Venus)

All The above leaders have KSY/KAY with one planet outside or planets occupying same rasi as Rahu or Ketu.

Literary Meaning: "Kal" means "earth-time" and "sarpa" means "serpent".

One view is, it is actually Sarpa energy which is again psychic energies of gods and goddesses of underworld, and it is believed that these sarpa are immense, ancient serpent-like deities who control the psychic shield around our planet Earth.

Sarpa are entities, of a much higher vibration than human beings, and definitely not to be confused with the common reptile snakes! This energy can be controlled by psychic skill, that means one has to condition his or her mind in such a way that the negative thoughts emanating from deep within are neutralized and do not effect the psyche of the person, to pull yourself above mundane happenings.

History: Rahu and Ketu gained importance in the Jyotisha around 600-800 AD i.e. long after the classics. like BPHS, Saravali, etc.

Beliefs: Kala-Sarpa yoga is associated with dreadful experiences like suffering from delays, hardships, obsessive habits, excessive desires, poisons, catastrophes, sudden and disastrous changes in every aspect of life, homelessness, not suitable for marriage, employment etc.

(Cause for manipulation by few astrologers. )


Even if one planet is outside the Rahu -Ketu axis.
If other Raja yoga’s exist.
If other planets are strong and corresponding dasa is in effect.
If planets present in the same house with higher degrees than Rahu or Ketu.
If Lagna is outside.

Actual effect: During Rahu-Ketu dasa, and transits particularly if Rahu is in lagna. Roller coaster kind of life with great falls after great achievements.

People with KSY/KAY are very sensitive and to defend themselves they use means which are Anti to normal society. If they channel this energy in a proper way they can follow people like Deepak Chopra.

During Rahu/Ketu periods, People with KSY/KAY can have severe identity crisis and should take precautions by monitoring their negative feelings particularly in case of criticism from others.

Strong planets: If other planets are strong, people with KSY/KAY live a normal life with normal career and families etc.

Worst effects: when Rahu in the lagna so Ketu is in 7, if married both spouses are affected and might take to anti-social life due to acute negativity.

Raman: "evil gets intensified if lagna is between Ketu and Rahu" whereas "evil is almost neutralized if lagna is between Rahu and Ketu".

If houses involved are - 1/7, 2/8, 4/10, 5/11, or 6/12 - have a significant KSY effects.
If it is 1/7 axis: inauspicious for marital happiness. As per Raman the Marital life becomes oppressive and marred by frequent classes and want of understanding. " and can be avoided through conscious understanding.
If it is 2/8: The native will go through many ups and downs financially - often great wealth, wiped out, and rebuilt several times.
If it is 4/10: Setbacks in career (If10th-rashi or 10-lord is not strong).
If it is 5/11: Difficulties with children. birth defects or accidental deaths for children.
If it is 6/12: betrayal by colleagues or family members. According to Raman in Three

Hundred Important Combinations, (p. 327) the 6/12 position "could indicate incarceration, or spiritual elevation, depending on the presence or absence of powerful Bandhana Yoga’s.

B V Raman: "Kala Sarpa Yoga has its bright shades. It makes one industrious, hardworking, and aware of one’s own ability- despite mental restlessness. It raises the natives to top positions in their respective fields provided of course other Raja Yoga’s are present.

Rahu-Ketu axis favors rise in mundane life while Ketu-Rahu axis indicates elevation in spiritual matters.

Suffering due to developments in life strengthens the mind and mellows down one’s outlook.

This is a blessing of Kala Sarpa Yoga.

No single yoga, including Kala Sarpa Yoga, is capable of marring or making a horoscope.
No single yoga could ever control an entire chart

KSY is a yoga and not a dosha or curse: Rahu's lord directs the life of the native and Rahu is known for breaking normal set rules in a normal society, so a person with this yoga might go through a period particularly during Rahu-Ketu transits and dasas, causing acute negativity causing frustrations even in mundane events of life, Rahu is know to give a person a fearless attitude to cut loose all those borders of social decency. so basically it is a negative thought process circulating in the mind, native should try to let this negativity move out of his head, in way it is management of psychic energies and sensitivities.

As Rahu enhances the phala of the lord of the house it is posited in.

Venus - All desires for beautiful things enhanced to extreme.
Mars- Too much focus.
Mercury- Communication- Too much talking for perfection
Moon- Too sensitive, too fickle minded
Sun- Too much concern about self image and leadership.
Jupiter- Obsession in learning or imparting knowledge to others.
Sani- Claim too much credit or try for impossible achievements.

In a way Rahu enhances the planetary lords traits and Ketu subdues them, so during Rahu periods the native is too focused and during Ketu periods native will have foggy focus.

Planets if outside Rahu-Ketu axis: If one of the following planets is outside the axis.

Sun: strong leadership dharma and moral philosophy
Moon: compassion for the masses, upliftment of suffering people.
Mars: gifted social leader, fight injustice upliftment for the downtrodden.
Mercury: calculating mind, detailed planning and upliftment of masses from ignorance.
Jupiter: extraordinary wisdom, criminal psychologist.
Venus: upliftment through arts and music.
Saturn: Risk taking to averse social injustice but in case no good planets are available, native might resort to injustice himself.

Remedies: Since it has to do with state of mind, take care of it by meditation, spirituality, positive thinking, developing positive habits, and avoiding negative thoughts.

Conclusion: If you see this yoga in your chart: Do not give much importance to it, instead look for other positive traits of your chart, like raja yoga’s, strong planets, favorable dasa, if Rahu dasa has already passed etc, any way Rahu after 42 years and Ketu after 48 years looses their significance, which is true for any chart with misplaced Rahu or Ketu., particularly in those charts where Rahu is posited in the 12th house and Ketu in 6th house or sign, all planets (No matter how powerful they are) on the left side of the Rahu ( In South Indian Chart) and All planets in the right side of Ketu ( In a south Indian Chart) will remain in a eclipsed condition for almost 42 years and 48 years respectively, and this condition has nothing to do with Kal Sarpa Yoga, if does than no chart is free from Kal Sarpa Yaga, because in every chart there will always be some planet between Rahu- Ketu or Ketu -Rahu.

The bottom line solution for a serious case of Kal Sarpa Yoga is break loose from your general routine and take initiative in positive direction, and then see you are bound to excel, all those great people with this yoga did exactly this.
