per BV Raman, there is also a legitimate version of KSY which applies when all seven classical graha occupy the five bhava between Ketu and Rahu .
One name for the Ketu-to-Rahu span is "Kala Amrita Yoga"
Aum ram ravahe namah
Aum kem ketave namah
Kala Sarpa Yoga
No graha allowed in bhava containing Rahu.
No graha allowed in bhava containing Ketu.
Kala-Amrita Yoga = Reverse-KSY
Kala Sarpa Yoga emphasizes Professor Rahu's instruction regarding opportunities to gain *social mobility * and desire for pivilege.
Kala Amrita Yoga emphasizes Professor Ketu's instructions regarding *the Witness perspective* and apathy toward attachments.

"Kala Sarpa Yoga has its bright shades.
It raises the natives to top positions in their respective fields
Rahu-Ketu axis favors rise in mundane life while Ketu-Rahu axis indicates elevation in spiritual matters.
It is also found that Kala Sarpa Yoga natives
Suffering due to developments in life strengthens the mind and mellows one's outlook.
This is a blessing of Kala Sarpa Yoga.
.... It occurs to me that undue importance need not be given to Kala Sarpa Yoga.
The view held by some astrologers that Kala Sarpa Yoga affects longevity and adversely affects the operation of other yogas favoring a rise in life, achievement, and accomplishment is not tenable.
In our view, Kala Sarpa Yoga plays an important role in mundane astrology [assessment of world events]
and is not of much importance in individual charts."
Kala-Sarpa Yoga is a rather late accrual to the Jyotisha inventory of planetary yoga.
Historically, Rahu and Ketu gained prominence in the Jyotisha commentary literature starting around 600-800 C.E. -- long after the main body of literary classics were recorded. Therefore Kala-Sarpa Yoga is not listed in the hoary classical works such as Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra .
Since its medieval rise to popularity, however, Kala-Sarpa Yoga has captured the interests of practicing Jyotishi.
Similar to the commonplace but ridiculously over-simplified beliefs surrounding Kuja dosha "mangalika" KSY is believed to entail many horrible and crippling consequences.
Kala-Sarpa Yoga is associated with dreadful experiences like suffering from poisons, relentless catastrophes, sudden and disastrous changes in every aspect of life, and every type of scandal. The accursed victim is predicted to become homeless, unmarriageable, unemployable, or a pariah -- all due to this single excruciating planetary configuration.
In truth, few of these terrifying results are likely manifest.
What the yoga does involve is a rather deep and complex psychological compulsion to re-enact a past-life memory of being especially Chosen as a human sacrifice.
During a Rahu phase, the KSY personality may display radically different traits from the behavior observed during a Ketu phase.
It is not a split personality in modern psychological terms.
Rather KSY = a two-phase interior signal
It can be a challenge to know who this personality really"is " .
Yet with KSY, the real person assuredly"is " both an ambitious materialist hungry for elite privilege (Rahu) AND a non-acquisitive wandering mendicant who may seem either saintly or dysfunctional or both.
Chandra's character can provide additional profile data regarding the nature of KSY's emotional needs.
For example if Chandra-yuti-Shani, one may demonstrate a need for approval from institutionalized authorities.
Being used for "higher purposes " may produce especially during the dissolving, pulverizing Ketu phase a sensation that one's life force is being 'consumed' by the deities.
In modern parlance, phrasing such as being 'eaten alive by worry' or 'consumed by one's work' may be heard from the KSY native.
One's own individual needs may seem irrelevant to the higher needs of the group. Naturally such a perception may frame a sacrificial personality often found in the lives of the saints.
However, the point of confusion is that Rahuva dominates this personality. Expect intervals of burning desire for recognition and ambition to acquire unearned privilege.
|Obsessive-Compulsive patterns|| |
KSY psycho-mental oscillation pattern may lead to obsessive-compulsive behavior.
During the Ketu phase,
However during Rahu phases,
The nature of these intensely desired privilege ar may be known via the bhava occupied by Rahu.
If even one planet is outside the "jaws of the serpent", results may be surprisingly good for social-change leadership or activism. The person knows all about the destructive powers of wild, excessive desire but one is not entrapped by those desires. Rather, one serves those who are trapped.
Results can = world-scale compassionate leadership - especially if that one "saving planet" is a subhagraha such as Guru or Zukra.
KSY does not disturb career or income. It does impact relationships, both personal and professional, but there are typically effective compensations in the nativities of those who use KSY to rise to power. Quite a number of contemporary world leaders have some type of modified kala sarpa yoga where all planets are hemmed in AND some planets occupy the Rahu-Ketu axis.

A Catechism of Astrology.Part II, page 35 (bold-type emphasis by BPL)
Nullification of Effects of KSY, by B.V. Raman:
"Q, 51 What is meant by ''Kalasarpa Yoga'' ? Explain its effects.
Kalasarpa Yoga is formed by the situation of all planets and Lagna within Rahu and Ketu .
Here Rahu must be considered as moving in an anti-clockwise direction (Apasavya).
Both these yogas are Arishta Yogas.
The first Kalasarpa will have its effects nullified
As this yoga is not mentioned prominently by such great writers as Varaha Mihira or Satyacharya ,
we have to take it that it is not very effective in Kali Yuga."
~~ B.V. Raman . (1992, 4th ed.). A Catechism of Astrology . Part I, p. 26

QUOTATION from: Bangalore Venkata Raman. (1992).
Q. 48. Is there Kalasarpa Yoga in [Benito] Mussolini's horoscope ?
There is no doubt Kalasarpa Yoga in Mussolini's horoscope;
Mussolini has a powerful Sula Yoga (one of the Nabhasa Yogas ),
This is quite unfavourable and will have a very adverse effect
BPL note: Sri Raman would have written this answer in approx. 1942 while simultaneously gochara Shani passed over the center of Mussolini's janma rashi, Vrishabha - Urisha = bhava-8 .
E.g., Saturn Return + Sade-Sati.
The by-then-reviled dictator was assassinated via gunshot to the chest, and his corpse subjected to violent abuse. ]
Students of the samayavidya might notice that the predicted dire consequences of the Kala Sarpa Yoga are not different from the predictions normally associated with standard at-birth placements of Rahu and Ketu within the 12 bhava.
In Kala Sarpa Yoga, as with other prediction for the effect of Rahu and Ketu, the lords of the rashi occupied by Rahu and Ketu provide a definitive force. Yet, as in other predictions for Rahu-Ketu, the occupied bhava is the most important fact.
of ten, the energy of Rahu-Ketu is significantly expressed through companion planets which share their natal house. However, in the accurate form, Kala Sarpa Yoga permits no graha in the residences of Rahu or Ketu. Therefore KSY does suggest a uniquely strong expression of the nodes within a nativity.
However, the undistracted strength of the nodes does not bode evil. It simply bodes a strong and direct expression of the characteristics expected from Rahu-Ketu in their natal bhava.
Rahu-Ketu simply amplified the realities of his social-financial well-connectedness (11, Vrishabha) and his apparent lack of incisive genius (5, Vrischika). Or as the American idiom goes,"not the sharpest knife in the drawer."
The lore of Rahu-Ketu is not part of the oldest Jyotisha texts (which go back to the Rik Veda and Atharva Veda.)
Rahu-Ketu seem to have entered the Jyotisha literature in the early centuries of the common era. Varahamihira mentions them. The yoga names for the specific bhava placements of Rahu-Ketu are drawn from Naga lore.
Kala * earth-time
sarpa * serpent
One translation of Kala-Sarpa-Yoga = "the serpent-force has enclosed the entire incarnation".
In practical terms, Earth energy is the vibration of the ancient history of Earth. It moves through the vehicles of sound and image. It is not logical; it is not verbal; it is not even rational. (It is older than Budha). It can be controlled, but only with psychic skill.

A gift of physical identity , and often the capability to channel the movements of a Naga who cleverly manipulates the musculature, physical features, and aura of vitality .
May be a remarkably convincing champion of visible, genetic, flesh-based arya "first-arrived" higher entitlements to primacy. However, the Naga spirit who acts through the body may use aggressive (1) movements.
(However a strict "brake" upon the Naga's movements, such as lawful Shani drishti upon Rahu, can reduce the scope of Rahu's false claims to superior privilege.)
Rahu in bhava-1impacts the mutuality of the marriage agreement bringing stronger focus to one's own personality, and indicates disinterest toward the spouse's needs.

"The talking head"
Kulika KSY may lose control of one's tongue and speaks hurtfully or untruthfully.
A gift of language, speech and song .
Kulika KSY often has the capability to channel the words and songs of a Naga who cleverly manipulates language. May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic speaker or singer. However, the Naga spirit who speaks through the mouth may be Boasting about its Knowledge.
Yet a stiff "brake" upon the Naga's speech, such as drishti from lawful Shani upon Rahu, can reduce the scope and impact of the mesmerizing words.
Rahu in bhava-2 * passion for treasuries is considered to speak poisonously; traditionally, one may ingest poison or suffer venomous snake-bite.
The Naga may desire to eat foods which are not suitable to the human vessel. Care should be taken to eat only pure and nourishing foods that are good for the human body. Generally Rahu-2 eats somewhat exotically or differently from the native's mainstream culture.
Expedient tendency to exaggerate in matters of speech; inflated claims; may possess inflated or exotic historical knowledge; charismatic lying which fills an immediate public need.
May gain higher entitlements on the enchanting strength of vigorously asserted truths in a time of public need for exotic speech.

Genius of legerdemain in the worlds of marketing, sales, advertising, public-relations, description, explanation, instruction. Often a mesmerizing, influential figure in the communications industry. Rahu in His messenger-role be attracted to televangelism.
One may be a gifted communicator, yet what Vasuki says might not be what the audience hears.
A gift of interpretation and transaction, and often the capability to channel the signals of a Naga who cleverly manipulates instructions and explanations.
May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic salesperson. However, the Naga spirit who gestures through the hands may be transmitting misinterpreted messages.
Yet an effective brake upon the Naga's narrative, such as drishti upon Professor Rahu from strict-and-sober Shani, can reduce the scope of disinformation.
Rahu in bhava-3 * may indicate a younger sibling or co-worker with high ambitions. Bhava-3 = hearing. Rahu-3 indicates intense desire to become a writer, journalist, announcer, evangelist, messenger. Rahu-3's amplified message meets the immediate needs of the public to receive this type of torqued instruction or explanation, However, the signal may later be seen to have been distorted.
Rahu in bhava-3 * passion for communication * in swabhava of Busy Budha, the Shadowy Specter = glamorous writing * exotic photography * unusual journalistic reporting * thrilling announcements * unorthodox commentary * mesmerizing messaging * craves publication * ambitious sibling-cousins * mixed-culture collaborative teams * desire for conversations * over-reaching commerce * exciting management style * opportunistic approach to manufacturing * entranced by information technology * boundary-breeching via unconventional explanations * fascinating evangelism * seeks privilege via communicative roles
Ketu in 9 scatters attachment to the established religion, and may cause a "relativistic" approach to doctrine, such that the native disregards the professors, and pundits.
Ketu in classroom-9 * incoherent ideology, ambivalent toward the credenda; wandering worldview; absentee father-figures * no barriers in doctrine, disregards teachings, vacuous philosophy, irrelevance of standard dogma
Rahu follows a pattern of ambitious rise to privilege, followed by a fall from power. Vasuki KSY tends to collapse when public becomes disenchanted with the falsified or tainted instructions.
For example, Vasuki KSY may indicated the downfall of university researcher who prematurely reported an exciting discovery, basking in the glory of their theory, only to later fall from grace when Rahu's inflation, expedience, posturing, or deception is revealed.

Kala-Amrita-Yoga "Reverse" pari-Samkapala KSY * starting from Ketu in bhava-10
Meanings for Samka from * Koln Sanskrit Lexicon
"What belongs to Pala"
A gift of bounded belongings * property, vehicles, and shelters . Often can channel the nesting instincts of a Naga who cleverly manipulates homes and vehicles. May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic patriot . Intense defense of security of ethnic boundaries.
Impassioned practice of seasonal, agricultural religion such as local festivals and puja. However, the Naga spirit who holds to the home-roots may be exaggerating ethnic land entitlements.
(Yet a strict "brake" upon the Naga's property entitlements, such as drishti upon Rahu from lawful Shani, can reduce the scope of false truths.)
It is said that relations with the mother and the folkways, ancient customs, and established cultural norms of her people are damaged. Traditionally, Samka KSY negatively affects vehicles such as landcraft, watercraft, and aircraft and owned buildings such as homes, schools, and warehouses.
Yet in practice, Samka KSY does not lose its purchase upon the owned properties. One obtains the privileges accorded to members of the class of estate holders .
Ties and bonds to local culture are exaggerated at the expense of larger, more comprehensive ties such as regional or national affiliation.
Matters of borders, fences, schools, houses, commercial properties, and overall national defense may become expedient devices by which Samka KSY sacrifices for the survival of the tribe.
Unless the teachings of the ruler of Professor Rahu are subject to prolonged and repeating lessons (usually via constrictive drishti) one may strive to own vast properties, ships, and land vehicles; Rahu-4 may rise impulsively in defense of estate holdings thus He empowers security agents and police.
Ketu in 10 scatters attachment to the public status and respectability, and may cause one to abandon high-visibility leadership roles in favor of holding close to the familiar.
Rahu in bhava-5 * passion for politics, celebrity, games
Padama* Padam * Padmaka

Kala-Amrita-Yoga "Reverse" pari-Padama KSY , starting from Ketu in bhava-11

Meanings for Padmaka from * Koln Sanskrit Lexicon
"A bright red sparkling spot"
A gift of dramatic charm , and often the capability to channel the intelligence of a Naga who cleverly manipulates the brilliance and sparkle of divine charisma.
May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic entertainer. However, this Naga spirit who radiates through the heart may be a a court-jester who pretends intelligence. The Naga is delightfully entertaining, but neither spiritually enlightening nor true vidya. Aura of falsified, inflated, over-privileged, or fabricated genius.
(A stiff "brake" upon the Naga's brilliance, such as drishti upon Rahu from cold and dour Shani, can reduce the scope of false pretense to royal or intellectual privilege.)
Rahu-5 is said to generate improper romantic love, procreative fertility, games, gambling, politics, and financial gain from speculative endeavor. Associated with irregularities in the method of acquisition of children, pretense of genius, falsified or over-idealized expressions of romantic love.
Ketu-11 dissipates the economics gains; disperses friendships. Yet, in practice, when Ketu in upachayasthana provides some beneficial comfortable results over time = freedom from the burdens of socializing. If Ketu's lord is strong, economic gainfulness arrives.

Mahapadma KSY often has the capability to channel the persuasive arguments of a Naga who cleverly manipulates unbalanced situations .
Mahapadma KSY may be a remarkably convincing, charismatic litigator or accuser. However, the Naga spirit who serves through unfair or exploitive methods may be the agent of betrayal.
(However a strict "brake" upon the Naga's jealous accusations, such as drishti upon Rahu from lawful Shani, can reduce the scope of false blame .)
Rahu-6 = a materially successful placement. Mahapadma KSY typically uses the methods of criminal misdeed, broken promise, disease, pollution, drug toxicity and addiction. Mahapadma KSY Either engages directly in slavery, usury, betrayal et-cetera; or one profits from the acts of those who do.
In the satkona, Rahu provides clever enemies, criminal elements, toxic environments. Yet Rahu may skillfully utilize these problems in a very clever way, transforming them into a launch platform toward higher recognition and privilege.
In general, papagraha in dusthamsha produce materially successful results until Rahu's fall. Of the papagraha, Professor Rahu in particular does His best work in the satkona.
Rahu-Ketu axis with both nodes in in upachaya bhava
A gift of speech, and often the capability to channel the speech of a Naga who cleverly manipulates language. May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic speaker. However, the naga spirit who speaks through the mouth may be Boasting about their Treasures.
(Nevertheless a strict "brake" upon the Naga's speech, such as drishti upon Rahu from lawful Shani, can reduce the scope of false truths.)
Ketu-12 is said to dissipate the sleep, dreams, and private bedroom relations. Generally Ketu-12 is a psychic disability involving weak boundaries between the material plane and the astral plane. Spiritual guidance from otherwise well-intentioned ancestors may be nebulized, diffused, or broken becoming incoherent (Ketu) and unusable.

Takshaka KSY often has the capability to channel the bargaining instincts of a Naga who cleverly manipulates contracts. May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic promise-maker. However, the Naga spirit who yokes through the genitalia (7) may negotiate expedient agreements and declare opportunistic vows.
(Yet a strict "brake" upon the Naga's partnering practice, such as drishti upon Rahu from lawful Shani, can reduce the scope of false promises.)
Takshaka KSY fueled by Rahu-7 is said to give improper qualities to the ambitious and exotic mate. Generally, the mate is affected only if Professor risk-rewarding Rahu's ruler is poorly disposed. KSY arises not from the mate, but rather from one's match-making, trust-proffering, deal-cutting propensities. May be a compulsive bargainer and wheeler-dealer.
Ketu in bhava-1 is said to give high blood pressure, headache, and a general lack of enthusiasm for life. The native may have a weak physical constitution and feel vulnerable to the predations of others.
Rahu in bhava-8 * passion for secrets

"Reverse" pari-Karkotaka KSY

Meanings for Karkotaka from * Koln Sanskrit Lexicon
"The Poison" * Karkotaka fruit can be crafted into a medicine, but in its natural state, it is a poison.
A gift of revealed secrets . Karkotaka KSY often has the capability to channel the revolutionary powers of a Naga who cleverly manipulates upheavals and disaster.
May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic healer. However, the Naga spirit who penetrates the apertures of the native may terrorize even while powerful healing discoveries are revealed .
Momordica cochinchinensis (picture to right) is a powerful medicinal plant when used judiciously.
(Yet a strict "brake" upon the Naga's invasions, such as drishti upon Rahu from slow and blunt Shani, can reduce the scope of false emergencies.)
Professor Rahu does His best work in bhava-6, bhava-10, and bhava-11. However, he is also effective in bhava-8 where His presence is a life-extender albeit also indicates one who keeps secrets.
Karkotaka KSY based in Rahu-8 is said to bring mysterious diseases, black magic, and sudden shocks. The transformative, camouflaging, masking abilities of Rahu the Trickster can deal rather shrewdly with hidden money, family secrets, undisclosed liaisons, and other potentially catastrophic material. The Naga King prospers in conditions of terror and disaster such as sudden exposure of secrets, explosions, eruptions, earthquakes, and disruptive storms (whether inside the body or outside the body, whether physical social financial or political).
Karkotaka-KSY may be a specialist in disasters, a tantriki or invasive healer using dangerous penetrating methods such as surgery or poisons.
Ketu in bhava-2 is said to make a spendthrift with an unsupportive family history, and medical problems of the face or teeth. In general, one feels ambivalent toward herds, hoards, and hordes. Carrying on the family values lineage is not important.

"The Whip" * A gift of religious fervor.
Samka KSY often has the capability to channel the ecstasy of a Naga who cleverly manipulates divine presence, impelling others to proclaim a doctrine a theory or a higher reality.
May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic divine . However, the Naga spirit who proselytizes through this priest may profess a false doctrine.
Yet a strict brake upon the Naga's pontificating, such as drishti upon Rahu from conventional Shani, can reduce the scope of false dogma.
Professor Rahu in bhava-9 is said to deliver instructions which may cause severe financial losses via gambling and disregard for priests. However, in practice, Professor Rahu in the bhava-9 classroom signifies a craving for recognition as a High Priest officiant of the Temple, and a desire to use the preaching of religious or philosophical doctrine as the method of self-elevation to a realm of higher social privilege.
If the dharmapati is strong, Professor Rahu in a bhava-9 classroom may indicate a socially mobile successful preacher, presbyter, kohen, kahuna, or pope; yet the style and content of professing activities may be controversial.
Ketu in bhava-3 dissipates the relationship to siblings (see also Ketu in the emotionally talkative, communicative cohort evangelical instructional team-working administrative managerial announcing publishing reporting explanatory conversational lyrical messaging 3rd-from-Chandra) and cousins-cohort, encourages mental dispersion and apathy, and brings negativity or incoherence into the life narrative. One may feel apathetic toward human communications in general.
a possible yoga for the Pentecostal talent of "speaking in tongues " or other varieties of psychic channeling
In practice, Ketu in upachaya bhava [3, 6, 10, 11] is not so problematic In Sahaja bhava, Ketu produces a tendency to non-sequitur at the least a rather whimsical communication style which does not effectively instruct the target audience.
A younger sibling may have mental health issues or be prone to eccentric behaviors. One may experience a dispersal of courage due to weak conversational boundaries and poor mental "traffic control".

A gift of governance and leadership empowerment, by whatever means necessary
Ghataka KSY often has the capability to channel the decisions of a Naga who cleverly manipulates executive powers.
Rahu-10 may be a remarkably convincing, charismatic leader. However, the Naga spirit who commands the hierarchy through the institutional governance may be imposing rules that are falsified or expedient or asserted by means of inflated-authority.
Yet an effective planetary "brake" upon the Naga's reptocracy, such as drishti upon Rahu from lawful Shani, can reduce the scope of false consequences .
Rahu in 10 is said to irregularize the decision-making and leadership capabilities through impatience and urgent desire.
However, the role of Rahu's ruler is very important. If the ruler is well placed, governance and institutional leadership may be well received, despite being characteristically Rahu-irregular.
In practice, Rahu gives materially favorable results in upachaya bhava * 3, 6, 10, 11. A Great Leap Upward in public recognition and prestige usually occurs during Vimshottari periods of Rahu. Craves leadership roles.
If Rahu's ruler is functioning well, the results may be excellent for boundary crashers.
May be accompanied by emotional insecurity and abandonment of life foundations (Ketu-4).
Ketu in 4 is said to disperse the fundamental serenity and security in life, so that the native feels constant uncertainty and depression.
Some vulnerability to ancestor ghosts who are restless due to incomplete burials (4) after their deaths.
Ketu-4 weakens the physical heart; Therefore, Ketu-4 nativities must attend more carefully than normal to cardiological health. Without proper attention, heart can become a psychic weak spot which lacks protective boundaries. However, with aid of a sensible lifestyle, regular check-ups and management of diet, the physical outcome of the underlying psychic situation can be rationally managed.

Kala-Amrita-Yoga "Reverse" Vishadhara KSY starting with Ketu in bhava-5
Meanings for Vishadhara from * Koln Sanskrit Lexicon
Visha * Visa
"Container of poisons" * A gift of economic gains .
Vishadhara KSY often has the capability to channel the marketplace linkage of a Naga who cleverly manipulates the economic networks. May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic community activist who seemingly supports the regulated extension of economic participation However, the Naga spirit who links through the networks of friendships may be imposing deceptive connections. Visha-dhara KSY links only to and between aspiring elites.
(Yet a strict "brake" upon the Naga's exaggerated earnings, such as drishti upon Rahu from lawful Shani, can reduce the scope of fraudulent prizes and profits .)
Rahu in 11 is said to damage the earning powers; the elder sibling becomes an enemy. Usually however Rahu-11 obtains significant earnings, albeit uses devious and deceptive means. Measurable gains can be expected. Rahu-11 favors economic income via slippery, oily, or smoky commodities.
Big Groups, Big Networks, opportunity = identity with community * mass assemblies
Rahu co-rules labha bhava = material goals and achievements. Rahu-11 will eventually produce significant material gainfulness via marketplace risk-taking and barrier-bending, taboo-twisting networked friendships.
In fact, Visha-dhara is probably the best type of KSY materially because Rahu is singularly motivated to obtain earnings. One becomes wealthy and well-connected via methods which may be surreptitious nevertheless effective for the purpose. Generally, the friendship network includes profit-aiding foreigners who may speak expediently with the 'forked tongue' of snaky Rahu.
Ketu in 5 is said to dissipate the focus upon one's the children and reduce the individual intelligence, to the point where Ketu's disconnectedness reduces the output of one's creative mind. The native may appear dazed or unintelligent.

Sesha-naga KSY Rahu in 12 = Illusions and Trickery upon the bridge between astral plane and physical plane. Rahu works in the dream world, conjuring images and infusing the imaginations of listeners with a promise of salvation (12). Rahu attempts to manipulate conditions of sanctuary, private prayer, and spiritual guidance.
A gift of imagination. Sesha-naga KSY often has the capability to channel the imagery of a Naga who cleverly manipulates the out-of-time dream space.
May be a remarkably convincing, charismatic weaver of astral experience. However, the Naga spirit who enters through the feet may be prone to exaggerate divinatory prescience.
Rahu-12 is said to give intense imaginative desires which dissolve (12th-from) the physical integrity (1). The corresponding weakness of Ketu-6 produces underlying health conditions related to psycho-imaginative over-production in 12.
Passionate desires expressed in foreign or subconscious dreamlike imaginative settings (12). barrier-bending, taboo-twisting in the bedroom.
Ability to tap the deepest subconscious fears and desires for personal advantage. Elevation to higher privilege via transactions along the bridge between the material sphere and the astral sphere.
Ketu in bhava-6 = apathy re: pollution, addiction, usury, slavery. Disengaged from mental, emotional, and physical health balance; uncaring about poverty or indebtedness; disconnected from arguments and conflicts.
Accusations and disagreements linger indefinitely, in a state of irresolution. Ketu-6 may be jailed and make no attempt to get out; may be accused and make no attempt to self-defend.
Some tendency to be carried along in illegal ventures, not as the lead perpetrator but often as an employee or servant of a wrong-doing master.
First of all, it is really not that dreadful!
KSY yoga gives a sacrificial personality which tends to subjugate the welfare of self to the welfare of a group, an ideology, a goal, or a cause.
KSY native may have limited self-knowledge but they are quite driven to use all of their personal resources to satisfy their singular desire.
One often appears to not have much of a life because they are so focused into a single channel.
The group upon which KSY may be obsessively focused can be a family network, a religious cult, a political party, a profession, or any association of people committed to a shared cause. the native 's hunger to satisfy the desires of the group transforms the native 's entire life into a vehicle for this desire.
The ideology upon which KSY may be obsessively focused can be political, religious, or anything in between.
The goal upon which KSY may be obsessively focused can be physical, mental, social, emotional, or spiritual.
The power upon which KSY may be obsessively focused can be psychic, material, punitive, liberating, utterly private, totally global, or anything in between.
|KSY = wide range of sacrificial social expression|
KSY may manifest though a driven ideologue whose personality is consumed by a hunger to lead their group into political power.
KSY can express through a parent who does not live one's own life, but rather lives entirely through one's children, sacrificing everything for the children.
KSY can signify a wife who literally lives through her husband, and who commits suicide upon the spouse's death.
KSY can create a teacher who lives through their students.
KSY may under highly benevolent
circumstances creates a son of God who sacrifices one's life for the transformation of humanity.
To understand the Kala-sarpa personality, appreciate that this native is driven by a great hunger to possess a particular person, object, experience, or power.
KSY personality interprets the ongoing stream of life experience predominantly in terms of this goal. Rahu can sacrifice an unlimited amount of one's own resource in the quest to achieve this satisfaction.
If the goals are socially recognized, KSY's intense and dedicated drive may bring the native worldwide recognition and praise. If the goals are considered socially deviant, the native may be criminalized and eventually executed.
|KSY Obsessions|| |
The Kala-Sarpa nativity predicts a lifetime of potentially Obsessive habits and concerns.
In the charts of political people, celebrities and those high in the public eye, "true" Kala Sarpa yoga will give its classic result: "Great fall in life at the pinnacle of achievement ."
|Psychic sensitivity heightened in KSY|
KSY folks are exceptionally psychically sensitive, and their sensitivity can force them to defend themselves through anti-social means. They often form Obsessive healing partnerships with other psychic 'sensitives'.
|KSY and Identity Crisis||During during Rahu-Ketu bhukti and also periods of the Moon, KSY folks can have severe identity crises caused by having reached toxic saturation levels of other people's negative imagery. |
Therefore, KSY folk must patrol their aura boundaries defensively especially during Rahu-Ketu bhukti . Vigilant patrolling will ensure that" foreign energy" in the form of criticism and negative pictures, is prevented from entering the individual sphere.
|Sacrifice: keynote of KSY|
Keynote of KSY
Rahu sacrifices, transforms or channels all of the intelligence, abilities, preferences, and perceptions in life toward His quest for a singular goal.
The problem is that KSY natives use their physical bodies to channel conflict away from the people they are serving.
|KSY and Physical Body Health|
KSY Feminine Nativities who use their bodies to absorb psychic conflict will tend to experience radically fluctuating, usually unmanageable excess bodyweight.
|KSY and Sexuality|
If Rahu or Ketu are involved with Mangala, sexual interactions of all kinds must be carefully managed due to the heightened psychic openness and potential for psychic invasion (Mangala) and carrying out the agendas of others (K (Ketu) during a sexual communication.
The default KSY state is unfortunately to suffer increasing pain caused by toxicity and attachment to the victim state.
Historically, some ancient societies had a practice of selecting certain children at birth who would eventually be used as human sacrificial victims. . A child might live their entire life anticipating that one would be murdered in propitiation to the gods at the age of nine or twelve (or whenever the time came).
The glorious age of sacrificial victims, who give their lives for their people, is by and large completed.
There may be some remaining valid events for heroic self-destruction -- such as death by war and sacrifical acts which prevent catastrophe. However, in general, KSY folks are running their lives on old programming.
Even when material circumstances are beneficial in the KSY person's life, the native may suffer a deep grief toward the end of life. The cause = "false Bodhisattva": seeing, toward the end of the incarnation, that one has abandoned one's own spiritual development to unconsciously serve the agendas of others.
(A true bodhisattva has completed one's own path. After completion, the Bodhisattva remains in pastoral service of the incarnated masses until all have arrived.
|KSY Conscious transformation = divine sacrifice|| |
The KSY native can be profoundly transformed and saintly when one understands one's karmic inheritance and CONSCIOUSLY decides to dedicate one's life to the welfare of their family, tribe, religion, nation, or humanity.
The conscious KSY native can be a performer of miracles - a transformative guide in any field of endeavor.
In contrast to the suffering, toxic, unconscious default KSY, the conscious KSY is not a victim of obsession.
The conscious KSY knows that one's life is INDEED being sacrificed for a higher cause. One lives in awakened agreement with that calling. This very high level of vocational awareness generates intentional (not obsessive) sacrificial ego-membrane transformation. The KSY native becomes transformed into a mere tool for the divine will.
This " high" KSY runs such pure Kundalini energy that one serves a living link between human and divine, executing the will of the divine with no human interference. One willing sacrifices the body for a higher purpose, at the moment the signal is given.
In contradiction to the ominous forecasts of some Jyotisha literature, the world is full of high-functioning KSY folks with good jobs and stable families.
Strong planets within the Rahu-Ketu enclosure can be very grounding .
As B.V. Raman says,"astrology is a science of tendencies."
In Vedic Astrology : A Guide to the Fundamentals of Jyotish (p. 183) Jyotishi Ronnie Gale Dreyer says,"[KSY] which is labeled in the scriptures as malevolent and unhappy, provides inflexibility, stubbornness, and a high-strung personality."
Certainly this is the traditional viewpoint, and also a true experience for the average low-awareness person.
The reason for their grumpiness (in extreme cases, sociopathic personality) is that KSY folk are EXTREMELY psychically sensitive.
|Need for psychic education|| |
KSY folk need psychic skill training to learn to defend themselves against the barrage of negative energy in today's world.
Those who live in such a
habitually unbounded mental state can easily absorb unwanted negative thoughts and feelings from outside their true self. They are often in danger of"losing themselves " in the channeling process.
Village astrologers may refer to KSY as a curse
The KSY native's life experience depends heavily on direction from Rahu's ruler .
|Rahu's ruler can greatly improve KSY results|| |
Rahu =foreigners and barrier-bending, taboo-twisting .
Skillful use of Rahu and risk-rewarding Rahu's ruler can produce great leaders !
Example Jyotisha reasoning:
If Rahu-Kanya and Rahu's ruler in Budha/Mithuna/10,
This is just an example of how Rahu's supposedly sociopathic or at the least difficult-to-like energy can serve as jet fuel for a remarkable world career involving barrier-bending, taboo-twisting and healing.
Reputable psychic training will go a very long way toward transforming Kala Sarpa's excessive psychic absorptiveness into powerful psychic healing skills.
| One Outside Planet
In the charts of world leaders, it is common to see an almost KSY yoga which is alleviated by the presence of one single graha outside of the Rahu-Ketu enclosure.
That one outside graha tends to have a very strong effect on the native 's performance in the outside world.
If the one outside planet = Surya , one may have a strong leadership dharma and will probably teach moral philosophy as a guru to dark souls desperate for spiritual information
If the one outside planet = Chandra , one may have tremendous compassion for the masses. Through caring speech, one can uplift large numbers of desire-tortured people.
If the one outside planet is Mangala , one may be a gifted social leader who will fight injustice and rally the cause of upliftment for the least powerful
If the one outside planet is Budha , native may use the calculating mind in organizing detailed planning and resource accounting to serve large-scale justice movements designed to lift the masses from their ignorance
If the sole outside planet is Guru, one may be blessed by extraordinary wisdom about other people's desire-caused troubles. He can be a healing professional like a psychologist (perhaps a criminal psychologist) who feels great compassion toward those who are victims of terrible desires.
If the sole outside planet = Zukra, one may be able to save the world (or one's own little section of it!) but the vehicle of upliftment will be arts and music. It is well known that music alone has the real power necessary to change society!
If the sole outside planet is Shani , one may be exceptionally self-protective, risk-averse and savvy about the darker side of human nature. Yet one might participate in social justice movements in a conservative function like legal work with intractable, repressive regimes.
Unfortunately without robustly supportive planets, one may become the repressive force which one originally sought to remove...
Some Jyotishi, including"300 Important Combinations " Shri B.V. Raman, opine that Kala-Sarpa yoga is also cancelled if there is any other planet in the same bhava with Rahu.
Most Jyotishi opine that Kala-Sarpa yoga does NOT apply when planets are hemmed in between Ketu and Rahu.
KSY is believed by most to occur Only when all planets hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu.
Dr. B.V. Raman writes that a variation of KSY does in fact apply when all planets occupy the five bhava between Ketu and Rahu.
| KSY by bhava-pair axes : |
1-7, 2-8, 3-11, 4-10, 5-9, and 6-12
Raman suggests that the particular axis involved has a significant determining power in the final KSY effects.
1/7, 2/8, 3/9, 4/10, 5/11, or 6/12 -
According to Raman in Three Hundred Important Combinations, (p. 327) the 6/12 position could indicate incarceration, or spiritual elevation, depending on the presence or absence of powerful Bandhana Yogas . ['Bandana' Yoga = bondage; see p. 274]
"The marital life," says Raman, "may become oppressive and marred by frequent classes and want of understanding."
Shri Raman compassionately mentions that the day-to-day oppression of this difficult KSY variation can be avoided, like all other difficult yoga can be overcome or avoided, through conscious understanding.
4/10 = setbacks in career unless 10th-rashi or 10-lord is strong. Roller-coaster cycles of rise-and-fall in public life, with tremendous fame attended by scandal creating collapse.
Again, interference by numerous Other malefic factors is required to give the frightening results often ascribed to KSY.
|KSY Remedies|| |
If your Jyotisha nativity shows the "dreaded" Kala-Sarpa Yoga, don't panic. There is much oversimplified Jyotisha alarmism out there.
There is a profitable market for "remedies" of uncomfortable birth yoga in traditional Bharati culture.
In the west, the "cure" more likely to be prescribed is self-awareness, personal responsibility, moral and technical education, commitment to serve those less fortunate , and a robust sense of humor.
As Dr. Raman so eloquently insists, no single yoga could ever control an entire chart!
When a less benevolent dasha makes life difficult for a conscious person in an otherwise good KSY chart, consider "treating" the KSY condition via Traditional Jyotishavidya Remedial ratna. Ratna are however expensive; comfortable and pleasing results can also be obtained via using the colors and imagery associated with the ratna. The goal is to emphasize positive, affirming, and nourishing THOUGHTS.
As always in any case of astrological imbalance-seeking-a-remedy, Selfless Service works best.
IMO the single most effective remedy for any type of chronic, self-obsessed mental pattern is to offer selfless service to those suffering the same sorrow as oneself, only worse.
The best way to pry the mind out of its fixations is to assist others with their own quest to solve their own life problems. It is remarkable how quickly the spiritual awareness can expand when one observes that many others are working on this precise type of karma, and that - being just a bit ahead of those lower down - one may be able to offer useful guidance to those in one's "downstream".
Q :In India, Kaalsarp dosha has gained great prominence, many astrologers associate restrictions, lack of opportunities and hurdles in life due this yoga.
Others associate KSY with power and fame yoga; as observed by you also, many successful businesspeople and politicians have it. I myself have observed that the yoga does obstruct the smooth working of life.
In India, the remedy for it is specific organized puja, conducted by priests in Nasik, Trimbkeshwar, where Lord Shiva shrine is there.
What sort of service can eradicate the evil effects of yoga, if some one cannot do the traditional ly recommended puja?
A: If you have read this far down the page, you have probably encountered my views on assessing realistic outcomes for this famous but over-estimated astrological configuration.
"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."
|Seva for KSY||As a general principle of "psychic similum", Selfless Service to those who are not well-connected to mainstream society and who often get blamed for misfortunes, such as foreigners, outcastes, and other taboo outsiders, will aid in alleviating the fear of being destroyed which is the subconscious reality underlying KSY.|
|KSY: Rahu in lagna|| |
For those lacking the beneficent corrections of "one outside planet", the most dreadful results of Kala-Sarpa yoga certainly can occur when the person lacks self-consciousness and is thus incapable of assuming spiritual responsibility for his own life.
Shri Raman writes (p. 328):"evil gets intensified if lagna is between Ketu and Rahu" whereas "evil is almost neutralized if lagna is between Rahu and Ketu."
|Default questing style: duplicitous and possibly illicit.|| |
Barring rescue of the native 's character from other uplifting combinations, KSY Rahu in any bhava signifies a consuming obsession with achieving and controlling matters of that bhava.
The compulsive mind signals that one *must* concentrate one's full energy into the obsessive quest in order to feel whole.Any activity or relationship which competes with the quest will be destroyed.
|Successful but compulsive|| |
Rahu-Ketu gain tremendous strength in Kala-Sarpa Yoga . One has the power to get the job done.
One is beset by constant pangs of hunger. Just when it seems that one has it all, some new experience appears on the horizon, one feels the obsession rising again, and off one goes in pursuit of it.
Sarpa yoga = famous for creating downward mobility. tOne = born into family affluence, but by the time of occurrence of the Rahu-Ketu opposition of approx age 27 or the Rahu-Ketu return of approx age 36, that wealth is gone completely and the person becomes a pauper. Usually there is emotional distress within the family even during the treasury years.
RED CHESTNUT = Altruism, self sacrifice. Obsessive concern for others, unable to let go. Sacrificing one over concerns for others. Suffering, or overwrought with fear for loved ones.
Q: Respected madam, Namaskar.
to remove Kaal Sarpa dosha, a golden ring shaped in form of Snake, is it suggested. I wish for her Good health and happiness, can all this be improved. Best regards -- Jai Ganesha.
IMO, flawless gems can channel stronger psychic currents through the body's nadi system, and this is their Jyotisha utility: to magnify the positive thought intentions which travel through the nadi (psychic nerve) system.
Thought intentions originate entirely in the native 's inner mind, and it is the native 's personal responsibility to generate and maintain positive thoughts. The flawless gem will amplify whatever intention the native produces. If the native is unfortunate enough to be generating negative intentions, then also unfortunately the gems can function as amplifiers or signal-repeaters for negative intentions also.
However, the important point is that the center of power is not the gem. The center of power is the native's own mind.
snake-image in gold sounds to me like sympathetic magic and perhaps has a superstitious motivation to place the power outside of the individual. One point to consider is that Kala Sarpa yoga is a permanent condition in the nativity, and the Yoga cannot be"removed" by any outside agency.
If the golden snake is applied in a ceremony designed to ground and strengthen the native's commitment to learn to appreciate and handle properly the Kala Sarpa yoga (in other words to be aware of a tendency to sacrifice one's own energies toward the well-being of one's people) then wearing such a ring could be a positive decision. Such a ring could serve as a"reminder"and help the native"pay attention" to one's own thought process, monitor expectations and reactions, etc.
However please use caution in regard to the motive for applying the snake ring. If the motive is superstitious, based on the belief that one's power to mature and guide the intention of one's own thoughts and reactions in any way lies Outside the Self , this is misleading and disempowering.
The negative effects of the yoga = a Tendency to psychic exhaustion from Over-giving and ungrounded sacrifice (the"martyr type" ). These oppressive effects can be relieved through personal attention to one's own behavior and the thoughts which precede the behavior.
The ring under no circumstances would be the"cause" of relief. Nor does any material object have inherent divine agency to"cause" psychic changes. Divine energy flows through the universe in a uniform pattern, and the strongest center for change and healing energy is always the human heart.
Outside objects may be beautiful reminders, but the source and origin of change is the divine intelligence, and the base receptor of divine intelligence in the human being is The human heart . ("Heart" includes the spiritual-mental-emotional-physical levels of heart.)
These are some electro-magnetic initiating thoughts on such a snake-ring:
Wishing you every happiness, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya
|Q: I have an"almost" KSY but Rahu is joined in karma bhava by Guru-Mangala. |
It is a welcoming rashi for Guru-Mangala but a bad sign indeed for status-craving Rahu. Rahu periods tend to bring me far too much obligation in life -- family members want money-loans (which I feel they will not repay as I am the great overseas Provider), cultural expectations such as paying for village festivals (although I no longer live there), boss wants extra hours at work (and not a few hours either but nearly a doubling of my paid hours), kids have so many projects and school performances...
I feel like everyone has a piece of me. I would have expected more glamour and recognition from Rahu but there in karma bhava Rahu gives me a Shani-weight of exhaustion, duty, and now if I give the loans that are wanted I am facing poverty too!
Although Rahu gives comfortable results in the longer term when He occupies any upachaya bhava (3,6, 10, 11) in the younger life Shri Rahu in 10-Simha = persistently problematic .
In addition, with Rahu-Ketu creating an "almost" Kala Sarpa yoga, it is important to avoid the psychological trap of"martyr complex", becoming a sacrificial victim = feeling obliged to give all your savings to your family members.
Simha at the pinnacle of the kundali and you presenting enduring a bhukti of Rahu would suggest that these family members are likely males (Surya), and either their leader is the father (Guru in 10) or it is the father directly initiating the disabling (to you) money sacrifice"for the good of the greater family" (KSY).
KSY and its modifications suggest a lifelong need for proactive defense against victimization by tribal guilt.
Consider taking charge of the process, refuse victim-mind. If you choose to give your life savings - much of it earned via overtime hours and other sacrificial methods - to"the fam",
then try to do that as the result of a neutral, self-determined business decision. The KSY personality is usually tightly bound to"The Family" in larger ethnic sense of tribe = family. Thus KSY considers the welfare of the full, extended family even including the ancestors when KSY makes a decision.
Just make sure that your choice is a"decision"and not an act of martyrdom.
The decision should be rationally defensible in terms of your personal, educated, and consciously articulated values.
Even if it features some aggressive tension (Mangala), your core identity with the extended family = quite strong psychologically .
Do the cost-benefit analysis and you determine that"rescuing"a highly-placed family member really is in your own best interest in the long term.
Try to avoid getting tangled in guilt, grief, and other emotional bondage (Rahu-Ketu) that can disturb the clarity of one's decisions -- leaving the feeling that one is a victim of circumstances.
Rather, acknowledge that giving your savings "away" is a choice made in the full light of awareness (Surya).
"There are no victims " - this is a fundamental truth.
However, KSY and its modifications often suggests that one was a sacrificial ritual victim in parallel lives . (There were millions of these in public rituals of a bygone era and still a few today in darker lands.) Therefore be on the alert for voice of powerless, ever-needy victim-mind.
Internal victim-narrative, much more than the real-life time-money constraints of Shani, can damage one's mental calm and add guilt-karma to relationships.
Probably there is a strong tradition of reactive guilt in your family. Luckily, you are now spiritually equipped to step forward from that tradition and refuse to accept that historic bondage. To live in the present and not be bound to the past, one must have a clear mind!
Q: Hi Barbara, how are you? I'm doing okay. I had a question and was hoping you could help me. I'm interested in learning jyotish and wanted to start by looking at my own chart.
Now, I've been told that I have"Kala Sarpa Yoga." But in my chart if you take a look, though the Graha do come in between Rahu in the 4th bhava and Ketu in the 10th bhava, the Moon is still slightly outside of Ketu... does that still qualify/constitute as Kala Sarpa Yoga?
If you could enlighten me on that then that'd be great. Thank-you so much.
To meet the KSY conditions, all graha must be contained in those rashi which lie between Rahu and Ketu.
If Chandra occupies the same rashi either with Rahu or with Ketu, the nativity does NOT contain the Kala Sarpa yoga.
Please see also KSY comments by BV Raman.
Sincerely, Barbara Pijan Lama, Jyotishavidya

|A: Namaste, |
There is no need to worry about obtaining a Kala-Sarpa Yoga remedy.
KSY does not need a remedy. It needs intelligent understanding. KSY is an astrological birth condition which indicates that an individual is born with the purpose to serve a group that is larger than self , such as a family, a tribe, or a nation.
The nature of the service is often sacrificial in that one's own lifestyle preference may be ignored in favor of doing what the group, tribe, or nation needs one to do.
Famous examples include
Do not be superstitious.
In fact, the best thing you can do for your daughter is to release all fear on her behalf. Do not worry for yourself, and do not worry for her. Have faith, be loving not judgmental, be not worried about public opinion, be rational and honest in approach, and consult a qualified Ayurvedic physician.
Ask a reputable Ayurvedic practitioner about whether Ayurvedic techniques including diet adjustments may aid or soften the modern OCD diagnosis. Often the calming effects of panchakarma therapy can relieve anxiety and calm the concern.
wishing you every happiness and success,
BP Lama Jyotisha
