What is Kaal Sarp Dosh?

The dreaded Kaal Sarp Dosh in the Kundli/Kundali or birth-chart of an individual arises when all the other planets i.e Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Saturn and Venus are placed between the planets Rahu and Ketu. This effectively means that one half of the Kundli is left empty.

Rahu is known as the head of the Snake and Ketu is known as the tail portion of the Snake, therefore they are part of the same.Rahu and Ketu are known as shadow planets and Rahu is a mysterious and secretive planet who bring mysterious situations, illnesses and such other things in life.
