Kala Sarpa Dosha: The Truth and Myths

What is meant by kala sarpa dosha?

When all the planets are on the one side of Rahu and Ketu, then that chart is said to have Kala Sarpa dosha.  Rahu and Ketu are known as the demons in astrology and they are also known as rebels.  When this Kal Sarpa yoga occurs, then the other planets are unable to perform their duty and that will make the person’s life a big failure.



There is certain folklore related to the Kalsarpa dosha. They say, if someone have kala sarpa dosha, they will never have enough money in their life,  because, Jupiter, the indicator of finances is under the control of Rahu and Ketu. The person is a sex maniac because Venus is also under the control of Rahu and Ketu, he will not have good children as Jupiter, the indicator of children is under the control of Rahu and Ketu. Since Rahu and Ketu are not from the Deva dynasty, the person is always selfish and he treats others with a business mind. Rahu and Ketu travel to the opposite side, so there will never agree with anyone.


Amazingly, this dosha is nowhere mentioned in ancient texts and this yoga is not technically proven as well. My Guruji Shree K.N Raoji disagrees with this dosha and he strictly asks his students not to follow this dosha.

The best example against Kala Sarpa dosha is Sachin Tendulkar’s chart

Looking at Sachin’s chart, we can assume that, if Kala sarpa dosha existed, then there would not have been any success in his life. There are so many other great people with this combination and they are very much successful.

So we can just ignore this dosha, as Guruji. Shree.K.N Raoji says.
