KAL SARPA YOGA Kala Sarpa Yoga is formed when Rahu Ketu turn-up
in the planets in the natal chart. It means if Rahu is 10 degrees, Leo
and Ketu 10 degrees, Aquarius and all the planets are within these
degrees, either from Leo to Aquarius or Aquarius to Leo. No planet should
conjunct Rahu or Ketu to complete this yoga. It curbs completely any
indications of the charts. One may face many important lessons in this
life, where no amount of effort is rewarded and one has to face many
obstacles for incomprehensible reasons. This Yoga does not indicate
either success or failure, but a person caught up in Karmic forces so
great that they curb his or her destiny. It acts bafflingly, without
other indications in the birth Chart. The conclusion is that one has to
pay a heavy price for past Karma in life. Understanding and counter-
acting the effects of Kala Sarpa Yoga needs a person to move towards his
higher self. As Rahu and Ketu act on the inner self, the need to
understand the psychic suggestions and the inner chunks created by this
blend is important. REMEDIES FOR KETU (DRAGON'S TAIL) ·Keep or
