Kaalsarpa yoga is a position in the birth chart of person, where all the planets come between Rahu and Ketu or Ketu and Rahu. Rahu and Ketu always move clockwise, whereas all the other planets move anticlockwise. So if the planets are moving away from Rahu then they are said to be between Rahu and Ketu and if they appear moving into Rahu, then they are said to be between Ketu and Rahu.
The common belief is that a person suffers from this dosha due to the mistakes he/she did in the past life. It is believed that under this condition, the native gets trapped in a number of difficult situations of life. There are negative effects in all the spheres of his life. The person may suffer from poor health, financial problems and unhappy married life. In many cases the person may also have to suffer from problems due to his children.
Though the effects of the kaalsarpa yoga are not always malefic, the common belief is that this yoga leads to negative effects only. However, the reality is that a number of other factors also need to be considered before arriving at a conclusion regarding the kaalsarpa yoga. This includes referring to the position of various other planets in the birth chart. There have been a number of people who were said to have the kaalsarpa yoga in their kundali. Despite this they have reached the heights of success. Pandit Jawaharlaal Nehru, Morarji Desai, Cahandrashekhar Singh are the most well known among them.
Therefore, having the kaalsarpa yoga, does not mean at all, that one's life has gone waste. The almighty always appreciates one's determination and hard work.
And it also does not mean that there are no remedies to this problem. Our ancient granthas mention a number of ways to get a solution to these problems.
Moreover, the Kaal Sarpa yoga itself is of twelve types. The results of which may be similar as well as different.
