Kal Sarpa Yoga

Kal Sarpa Yoga is in force all September 2018

What is Kal Sarpa Yoga?

Kal Sarpa Yoga is a divisive even preposterous energy where all the Vedic planets are to one side of the signs occupied by the Nodes of the Moon.

It is important to understand what exactly Kal Sarpa Yoga means.

If you have Kal Sarpa Yoga in your birth chart, you will naturally be attuned to issues of division and confrontation.

This divisiveness may have been in your family. You may be over-attuned to it in society. Tension around confrontation energies/situations can govern your use of time (e.g. surfing a lot for political news of a confrontational nature/political correctness situations, vicarious experience rather than living).

So it can go either of two ways:

Certainly, with some, this can make for a very confrontational, preposterous inflated person. Strutting their stuff. Boasting. Making inflated claims. I remember when I was doing an ethnography: a five-year university-based field study of spiritual forms new to the Modern West, based mainly in Glastonbury in England, someone set up a University of Avalon – and the local council trading standards department made them shut it down. The head-turning person concerned was not fit to use the term University! It was misleading. It was exploitative of the more naive.

But in fact, with others it can go the other way: this can make for a person who shies away from the potential for conflict and over-assertion, even to the point of overcompensating and letting themselves be over-ridden.

And absolutely of course, we must always remember that the fact is that people with Kal Sarpa Yoga (as for any other challenge) can make great strides in spiritual awareness and spiritual achievement. Our challenges can be our greatest spurs to spiritual growth. This is the ideal.

The other big factor in Kal Sarpa Yoga is that it does create an imbalance in solar and lunar energies. This can lead to overdrive and burn-out.

And the positive qualities of this Yoga are that, the native can acquire a capacity to do arduous work, with exceptional success in the fields of studies, administrations, philosophy etc.

But how do we establish if Kal Sarpa Yoga is in force in the heavens? Well, basically, Kal Sarpa Yoga exists when all the planets are to one side of the axis of the Nodes of the Moon.

But this does in fact also include the scenario that some planets might be conjunct the Nodes as well, even if technically the other side of the nodal axis. So, do note that even though Mars has slightly higher longitude than Ketu, from September 20, 2018, this does not in fact mean the end of the Kal Sarpa Yoga energy. This is because Mars is still conjunct Ketu/South Node. Mars is still in the same sign as Ketu. We will still feel the Kal Sarpa Yoga effect. Children born at this time will also have Kal Sarpa Yoga in their birth chart, in their destiny, in their personality, in their life.

And another question often raised:  what about the Moon: the transiting Moon? Well, of course, half of every month, the Moon will be transiting to the other side of the Nodal axis from the side where all the planets are positions. But this does not at all mean that Kal Sarpa Yoga is not still in existence. In fact it makes the impact of the destabilising energy on the Moon worse.

The Moon is Mind. The position of the Moon affects our mind, our emotions, our consciousness. So do note that even where the Moon transits outside the grouping of the other planets, Kal Sarpa Yoga energy still runs.

Indeed, as regards the Moon, the fact is that the Moon in such a situation is out on its own. The Moon is thus isolated and unsupported. In Vedic Astrology this is a Kemadruma Moon.  And people with Kemadruma Moon in their birth chart do have extra challenge to deal with to maintain stability of their mind: to avoid lapsing into conformation, or obsessional repetitious mind scripts, etc. this applies if there is no planet in the sign of the Moon, nor a planet in the sign either side of the Moon’s sign as well.

Going into important detail, it is important to note whether Rahu is before or after that planet with respect to the direction Rahu is moving (backwards in the zodiac).

So, If the planet is in a lower zodiacal degree of the sign with Rahu, then the two are coming closer, so the planet is considered to be ‘entering the mouth of Rahu’.

If the planet is in a higher zodiacal degree than Rahu, the two are separating, and the planet is considered to be in the ‘tail of Rahu’. If the latter, in the tail of Rahu, it means the planet has already been burned and destroyed: major problems throughout life, pain, suffering and karmic issue from a previous life to be worked out. The position of Ketu will define what area of life the karma originated from in previous life. So to be in the mouth of Rahu is not as destructive for a planet.
Where Ketu is by sign and house indicates a karma to try to complete or finish something that was left incomplete in a previous lifetime

It is important to know that Donald Trump has Kal Sarpa Yoga in his birth chart, and he was elected President of the USA when Kal Sarpa Yoga was in force in the heavens. We will see what that does for the USA and the world.
