Types of Kaalsarp Yoga

Part 2

10. Ghatak Kaalsarp Yoga:- This yoga arises when Rahu is in 10th house and Ketu in the 4th house. Litigation problems are common is this case. The person is likely to be punished by law or by the Government. However if this yoga operates in a beneficial manner then it has the power to confer the highest form of political power, special in Virgo and Leo ascendant.

11. Vishdhar Kaalsarp Yoga:- When Rahu occupies the 11th house and Ketu the 5th house the yoga which arises is the Vishdhar Kaalsarp Yoga. The native travels frequently and is never fixed at on place. Problems also arise from children. However these natives get some peace in the latter half of their life.

12. Sheshnag Kaalsarp Yoga:- When Rahu occupies the 12th house and Ketu the 6th house the native has problems relating to litigation. There may be enemies and health problems.

Here we would like to say that like so many other subjects in Astrology, even this subject is not free from controversies. Different scholars have given different versions as to the formation of this Kaalsarp yoga. While considering the Kaalsarp yoga, according to us, following things may be kept in the mind.

1. The planets should be hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu and not in between Ketu and Rahu.

2. From the ascendant, Rahu must be in the first six houses and Ketu in the remaining houses.

3. Kaalsarp yoga is saved, if at least one planet is outside the Rahu/Ketu axis.

4. There is no Kaalsarp yoga if there is any planet with Rahu or Ketu though it may be between Rahu and Ketu axis. For example, if Rahu is 15o Libra and Moon is 28 o Sagittarius and Saturn is 11 o Sagittarius, there is no yoga present.


There are lot of remedies for Kaalsarp yoga but this book deals only with yantra we would deal only with the yantra part. After energizing the yantra the devotee should start his pooja on panchmi tithi (fifth day of any paksh of Hindu calendar) or Amaavasaya or Saturday. The most auspicious day considered for Kaalsarp yantra pooja is panchmi of shukla paksha in sharavan month. The Mantra for recital is Mahamritunjaya (please refer Shiva yantra) for hundred and twenty five thousand times and after that the nav nag pooja is done. The yantra which is also know as nagpash yantra is worshipped for kaalsarp dosha daily.
