KAALA SARPA YOGA - RAHU AND KETHU
When all the planets are located between Rahu and Kethu in astrology horoscope, then it comes under ‘Kaala sarpa yoga’ or ‘Kaala sarpa dosha’. This gives obstacles in the prosperity of the native. We find kaal sarp dosh in the horoscopes of great people like MK Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Margaret Thatcher, Dhirubhai Ambani, Sachin Tendulkar. In spite of kala sarp yoga, they became famous due to their will power and efforts.
When all the planets are located between Rahu and Kethu in a horoscope, then it comes under ‘Kaala sarpa yoga’. This is also called ‘Kaala sarpa dosha’ since its effects are not good. Even though Rahu and Kethu are not planets, they are considered as planets in Indian Vedic Astrology since their influence is very powerful.

Rahu’s naisargika or inherent strength is said to be more powerful than that of any other planet.
So, we cannot take Rahu and Kethu in a lite way. In a horoscope, if Rahu conjuncts Jupiter, then it is called ‘Guru chandaala yoga’ and it will destroy all good yogas present in the horoscope. Rahu and Kethu bear such a powerful influence.

Starting from Rahu and ending with Kethu, if all other planets are located in the middle, then that combination is called ‘Kaala sarpa yoga’ which brings destruction for the native.
No planet should be in conjunction with Rahu or Kethu. Then only Kaala sarpa yoga will be formed. This yoga gives obstacles and failures in certain spheres of life. The native cannot achieve expected growth in the life. But no need to worry. If other benefic yogas are present in the horoscope, then the Kaala sarpa yoga will not operate.
