What is Kalasarpa Dhosam

You are aware that that there are 12 houses in the Rasi Chart of a horoscope. Each house is 30degrees. Total 12×30=360Degrees. Rahu and Kethu will always be 180degrees apart. Now when all the other 7 Grahams. (Sun-Moon-Jupiter-Venus-Saturn, Mercury & Mars) and Lagnam  are within 180 degrees or on one side of  Rahu & Kethu, it is known as Kalasarpa Dosham. Some people call it as Kalasarpa Yogam. On the other side of Rahu & Kethu 5 houses should be vacant. There should not be any Graham in these 5 houses. Even if one house is occupied there will be No Kalasarpa Dosham. See the examples given below.

Sample 3: Kalasarpa Dhosam

Sukran and Budhan are on the left side of Rahu & Kethu.

Sun-Guru-Sani-Lagnam-Chandran & Chevvai are on Right side.

Grahams are on Both sides of Rahu & Kethu.

When one or more Grahams are seen in both sides of Rahu & Kethu , there is No Kalasarpa Dosham.


Kalasarpa Dosham will be present in many Horoscopes. Such persons should go to Khalahasthi, Thirunallar or Thirunageswaram and perform special Pooja / Milk Abishekam to clear the ill effects of Kalasarpa Dosham. The concerned person should visit one of the 3 places and do the Pooja / Prayer. Doing this by Proxy will not ward off the Dosham. It is enough to do this once.
