APPENDIX I: A NOTE ON KALA SARPA YOGA by B.V. Raman
(bold/italics applied by B.P. Lama)
[begin direct quote]
"Kalasarpa Yoga (KSY) is said to be formed if All the planets are situated between Rahu and Kethu.
The results are that countries and rulers are destroyed and people become afflicted.
Strictly speaking, KSY does not find a place in the classical astrological literature. How this yoga gained currency and gathered a sinister meaning is not clear.
I propose to make a few observations in the light of my own humble experience and it is left to the discretion of the readers to accept them for what they are worth.
All Graha between Ketu and Rahu?
The definition of KSY given above generally holds good.
According to some, this does not constitute KSY.
But in our view irrespective of whether the planets are between Rahu and Kethu, or Kethu and Rahu, the yoga technically exists.
But in conferring results several variations are possible. The general belief is that KSY is evil, restraining all the other good yogas present in the horoscope, and that those having the yoga will have set-backs and reverses in life.
It is also feared that Kalasarpa Yoga is capable of nullifying the most powerful Dhana-yogas, rendering a rich man poor.
In interpreting Kalasarpa Yoga, consideration should be given to the houses which are mainly involved, e.g.,
In each case the results could be different, depending upon a number of other horoscopic factors.
KSY on the 6th-12th axis
Generally it is found, other combinations warranting, the 6th-12th axis (i.e., Kalasarpa Yoga) could indicate incarceration, or spiritual elevation, depending upon the presence or absence of powerful Bandhana Yogas.
KSY on the 1st-7th axis
If the axis involves the 1st and 7th houses, it is not good for marital happiness .
If the 7th lord or Venus is strongly placed and well disposed then The evil results should not be predicted. The marital troubles can be avoided.
Knowing in advance, the implications of this yoga, one can regulate one's thinking and behavior and develop an understanding.
KSY on the 4th-10th axis
Likewise if the houses involved are the 4th and 10th ,
KSY has its bright shades.
Rahu-Kethu axis favors rise in mundane life while Kethu-Rahu axis indicates elevation in spiritual matters .
Other important factors to be noted are:
The original sloka refers to Agre rahu , i. e., Rahu must be the main or prominent planet which means the Yoga can become effective if planets are in between Rahu and Kethu.
The common fear that if Kala-Sarpa Yoga is fully present the effects of other good planetary combinations get nullified is not without justification. There are horoscopes with excellent yogas showing great advancement and prosperity but the native s continue to be mediocre. A brilliant career may suddenly end.
Such cases may have KSY but it may not be the main cause for making one what he is. It maybe one of the causes.
In the following horoscope, KSY is present because of the situation of all the planets in between Kethu and Rahu.
But the other afflictions - such as the political planet and lord of the 9th Sun being aspected by Saturn, and Saturn being in conjunction in the 7th with the lord of Lagna - gave a deep fall despite the fact that the native rose to the highest position by virtue of other Raja Yoga s, reckoned from both Lagna and Chandra Lagna. The end of Saturn Dasha gave a violent death.
Mark the fact the Kethu-Rahu Axis involves the 12th and 6th. the native was betrayed by his own trusted colleagues. It occurs to me that undue importance need not be given to KSY.
It occurs to me that undue importance need not be given to KSY.
The view held by some astrologers that KSY affects longevity and adversely affects the operation of other yogas favouring rise in life, achievement and accomplishment is not tenable . The overall assessment of the horoscope is important.
No single yoga, including KSY, is capable of marring or making a horoscope. In our view, Kalasarpa Yoga plays an important role in mundane astrology and is not of much importance in individual charts." [end direct quote]
