Introduction – Kala Sarpa Dosham Meaning
Kala Sarpa Dosha or Kala Sarpa Yoga, is one of the most feared astrological combinations that can bring unbearable pain and misfortune to an individual. It is formed when all seven planets are in between Rahu and Ketu. An individual who is born under the Kala Sarpa Yoga suffers insecurity, fear, a constant fear of death and other disasters or continuous bad luck.
The Kala Sarpa Yoga is often also considered as Kala Sarpa Dosha due to its negative implications on a person’s life. Kala Sarpa Dosham can bring in all kinds of problems to a person like, loss of job, loss of finances, delayed marriage, loss of property, accidents, legal issues, loss in business, loss of a child, issues with the family and many other difficulties.
A person can experience Kala Sarpa Dosha or Kala Sarpa Yogam for a period of 47 years, however, it varies from person to person. For some Kala Sarpa Dosha lasts for a period of 33 years.
Complete Kala Sarpa Yoga
A complete Kala Sarpa Dosham is formed when half of the natal chart is not occupied by the planets. The exclusion of even one single planet outside of the axis of Rahu and Ketu does not indicate Kala Sarpa Yogam.
Partial Kala Sarpa Yoga
A partial Kala Sarpa Yoga is formed when planets like Mars and Saturn, which are considered unfavourable, are placed on the opposite side of Rahu and Ketu. However, the effects of a partial Kalasarpa Dosha is not as adverse as that of a complete Kalasarpa Dosha.
