In a native’s birth chart, Rahu and Ketu are always placed seven houses away from each other. When all the planets fall within these seven houses and the rest of the five houses remain vacant, it forms Kaal Sarp Dosha. This is regarded as inauspicious in Vedic astrology. While analyzing the birth chart in your Janampatri, it is essential to see if a planet actually falls within the seven houses ranging from Rahu to Ketu. This Dosha causes a lot of struggle in life in all aspects including marriage, career, finance, health, and children.

Based on the position of Rahu and Ketu, 12 types of Kaal sarp dosha are known. They are:
