									What is Kaal Sarpa Yoga

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)

This yoga is said to be formed if all the planets are hemmed between Rahu and Ketu. It is said to
result in destruction of rulers and the native suffers in general scheme of life. Strictly speaking, this
yoga does not find a mention in classic astrological literature. How this yoga gained currency and
gathered such a sinister meaning is not known. According to a large section of astrologers, this yoga is
operative only when all the planets are hemmed between Rahu & Ketu in their retrograde motion and
does not hold good if the planets are between Ketu and Rahu.

The above definition by and large holds good. The general belief is that this is an evil yoga restraining
all the other good Yogas present in the horoscope and will bring setbacks in life. If any of the planet is
outside this axis or even if any planet, though posited in the same house as the node, is outside the
axis longitudinally, this yoga is not operative.

However, experience suggests that though such natives do suffer in only some specific sphere of life,
they excel in other fields. While interpreting Kaal Sarpa Yoga, we should consider which houses are
occupied by Rahu & Ketu. In each case the results are likely to be different. Generally it is seen that if
the axis involves 1st & 7th houses, it is not good for marital happiness. The marital life may become
oppressive and marred by frequent clashes and want of understanding. But if 7 th lord & Venus are
well-placed, then evil results should not be predicted. If the houses involved are 4 th & 10th houses, it
may cause set-backs in one’s career & domestic happiness, unless 10 th/ 4th house and its lord &
karaka are well placed. Similarly if this yoga is in 6th & 12th axis, it could indicate incarceration or
spiritual elevation, depending upon the presence/ absence of powerful Bandhan yoga.

This yoga has its brighter shades as well. It makes the native industrious, hard-working, and aware of
his ability despite mental restlessness. (Please refer chart no. 87 of Nelson Mandela) The natives
under this yoga may get betrayed by trusted friends and relations. This knowledge & experience make
his mind strong and mellows his outlook. This yoga may raise the native to the top position in their
specific field of choosing, provided good Rajyogas are present. It is also by and large agreed that if
lagna, Moon, 9th & 10th lords are strong, the evil effects of this yoga are mitigated to a large extent.

The native was ill-famous dictator of Italy during World War II. He had Rahu-Ketu axis in 12th & 6th
houses and all the remaining seven planets are hemmed between Rahu & Ketu in their retrograde
motion. Thus kaal Sarpa Yoga was fully operative. He had 9th lord Moon exalted and conjunct with
lagna lord Mars in 7th house. Association of Mars & Saturn with Moon in 7th house of War, made him
aggressive partner of the Axis forces. He became head of state of Italy in 1926 during the dasha of
Jupiter-Mars and ruled Italy for almost 20 years till end of World War II and fall of Axis powers. He
was shot dead on 28 Apr 1945.
