What is Kalsarpa Dosha - Its Meaning and Significance in Vedic Astrology

There are many intricate features in vedic astrology that help us navigate through the tougher times we experience in our lives. Whether it is financial struggle or struggle with relationships, vedic astrology acts as a guide and advisor in such times. Here we will discuss what Kalsarpa Dosha is and what its significance is in our daily lives. Kalsarpa Dosha, a belief in Vedic astrology, occurs when all planets in a person's birth chart are situated between Rahu (the north lunar node) and Ketu (the south lunar node). This alignment forms a 'snake-like' formation, hence the name 'Kalsarpa,' meaning 'serpent' or 'snake.' It's perceived as an astrological phenomenon that can bring various challenges and obstacles in one's life, such as financial difficulties, familial discord, career setbacks, or health issues. Depending on the specific positioning of Rahu and Ketu in the chart, this dosha is categorized into different types, such as Anant Kalsarpa Dosha, Vasuki Kalsarpa Dosha, Shankhpal Kalsarpa Dosha, etc., each believed to affect an individual differently.


To delve in deeper into some of the many specific versions of Kalsarpa Dosha, here are some brief explanations of each type: 

  1. Anant Kalsarpa Dosha - Anant Kalsarpa Dosha is one specific type of Kalsarpa Dosha in Vedic astrology. It occurs when Rahu is placed in the first house and Ketu is positioned in the seventh house in a person's birth chart, while the rest of the planets are positioned between them. This formation creates a scenario where all other planets are confined between Rahu and Ketu.

  2. Vasuki Kalsarpa Dosha - Vasuki Kalsarpa Dosha is another type of Kalsarpa Dosha in Vedic astrology, named after Vasuki, the serpent king. This dosha occurs when Rahu is positioned in the second house and Ketu in the eighth house in a person's birth chart, with all other planets located between them.

  3. Shankhpal Kalsarpa Dosha - Shankhpal Kalsarpa Dosha is one of the many variations of Kalsarpa Dosha in Vedic astrology. This dosha occurs when Rahu is positioned in the fourth house and Ketu in the tenth house in a person's birth chart, with all the other planets placed between them.
